“Feel good” marketing needs to end. It doesn’t matter that your product is recyclable when there isn’t a recycling stream for it (just like how single stream recycling in the US gets landfilled or sold elsewhere and landfilled),p. It doesn’t matter that you use biodegradable materials, if they don’t actually degrade in nature (PLA for example, needs to cook at a very hot temperature, above 200c or so, for a week continuously).

The Notre-dame isn't just a Christian building, it's a major historical structure and a part of the common heritage of mankind. That building, or what remains, is 850 years old, it survived throught the hundred years war, the countless Paris insurrections of France's revolutionary waves and both world wars. Its a historic monument to human history as any other. 850 year old icons are few and far between, and they only get fewer. I for one am heartbroken, as when anything of our history is lost, these sites are worth something and to see their end is saddening. There's not going to be another Notre-dame if it goes entirely, that 850 odd years could just end now, and I find that saddening.

Witches are the vanguard of the revolution. Uphold Atsuko Kagari thought.

Ultimately the fire of Notre Dame is a sad loss of art, and if someone is using it as an opportunity to propel their social capital with edgy jokes, it is adviseable to unfollow/mute/block them

子どもの頃に本で見てカッコいいと思った戦車のプラモがありました。タミヤ製品だった事だけ記憶してました。

気に入ったのが色で、なんと青に黄色の迷彩でした。

そんな頃にガンプラブームが始まり、その戦車の事は忘れてました。この間20年くらい?もっと?

プラモ復帰して、あの戦車は何だったっけ?となり、なんとなくヤークトタイガーな気がして検索しても、店頭にも記憶に残る戦車のプラモはありません。

その後、以前はハンティングタイガーという商品名だった事を知り、検索したら出てきました。これは1968-1975年までのパッケージのようです。

長い時を経て名前も姿も変わってました...
改めて見ると、青だと思ってたのはジャーマングレー、その上にサンドイエローの迷彩ですね。

この組み合わせだとグレーが青味がかって見えるのと、当時の印刷がアレで、子どもの頃の自分は青だと思いこんじゃったみたいです。

今作ってる1/48ヤークトタイガーは、このハンティングタイガーカラーにしたいのです。

作例写真のほう、タミヤのサイトにあるものなんですが、やっぱちょっと青味かかってるし、カッコいい 笑

Does anyone spin? I have a ball of wool (unknown origin), a pair of 8" combs, and a couple drop spindles. I would love to see them go to a good home where they will be used, since I never got to learn how to do it.

Cover shipping and promise to tell me how it spins, and it's yours.
