        Good to know you have a little skin in the game on this container too. . I was hoping it was being sent this week since the wife isn't home this week. Easier to get into the house and the box removed.

        • Hoping mine shows up before I leave for Texas for two weeks, including the 3DPUP parts. I leave the last Monday of the month. Don't want the stuff sitting out on the front porch for two weeks!!! Especially since both shipments will include a pair of Admiral 4s 5000mah batteries! The plane is going to my work site, but the 3DPUP package was supposed to be here already.

                • Well, I normally don't do this to my jets but I decided to try and make my F-4 to look just a little better. I have been trying to like the camo paint all stock but it was just to fake looking and I even thought about selling it and wait for another livery option to come along, so after some thought I jumped in last night and gave it my first attempt at weathering, might have went overboard a little but after looking at all the F-4 pics I could find, I have come to the conclusion that they were indeed very dirty most of the time and well worn on the paint.

                  So...............

                      Thanks! I tried to capture the highs and lows of the hobby. The song is "Time" by Hans Zimmer.

                      Okay the next batch of Phantoms have ARRIVED! So if yours is in this next batch you should be receiving a notification sometime today and/or tomorrow. The parts are just a couple days behind so they will be shipping out end of this week, or early next week.

                      So psyched for my Phantom!! I have been waiting for the past 15 years for this jet...Stoked!!

                                        Just watched the trailer for the movie....Kind of hard to tell what it's really about.

                                        But you're right, the music sounds like it's very good and extremely dramatic.

                                        It's a song called "Red December", by the Osaka Clear Youth Orchestra. Found it on Spotify!

                                        "I must've watched a different movie trailer called "My Soul is in the Sky" I came up with a totally different soundtrack. But then again, the movie was a little weird too".
