  1. I think if you scan it and give it to someone who knows what they are doing with photoshop and have it printed on a high-end professional photo printer you should be happy with the results...it looks like there is plenty there to fix it and given how small your face is on the picture it will probably be hard to detect any issues with it if you can find someone good.
  2. You have to be careful posting Ebay postings on forums like this one if you're planning on bidding on it....wouldn't surprise me if some of the bidders were people who were alerted to the item by you posting on this thread!
  3. I think before you can even remotely consider this subject you first have to state the use of the item in question. If you're going to wear an old pair of leather boots on a daily basis, your feet will sweat and add moisture to the leather and you will scuff the boots as you accidently rub against walls and posts and your car, so in that case you will probably want to continue to polish the boots as they were originally intended, however if your boots are going to be kept in a drawer for the next 100 years it probably doesn't make sense to polish the boots on a daily basis, or do anything to them aside from removing the dust. I think if you add oil to a leather that has totally dried out it may look better for awhile (or for sale), but I would think it probably hurts the leather long term. On what I think is an interesting side note I belong to a Forum for a relatively new car I own and leather care comes up often with everyone claiming the best product and/or UV protectant however interestingly enough the manufacturer suggest to only use water and a soft cloth to clean the leather and maintain it.
  4. Hey...how cool is this...a pistol version http://www.auto-ordnance.com/PA-1TH_ta.html Jonesy, is there an asault rifle ban in Connecticut and California?
  5. Why not just get yourself a new one? http://www.gunsamerica.com/908313331/Guns/...1_Tommy_Gun.htm Have any of you bought one of the new ones and given it an "aged" look?
  6. I'm pretty sure I'll be in the minority on my opinion here, but I always question the true value of any original if it's nearly impossible to tell the difference between a reproduction.
  7. I think something is getting lost in the translation.
  8. I like most of the Tarantino movies...I'll still cringe when someone mentions the "ear scene" in Reservoir Dogs, however I too have believability issues with Brad Pitt, so I guess I'm joining you in the "getting over it" corner!!
  9. As a Crewchief slingload operations were usually "fun" to do since we didn't normally do them, however I felt that night time slingloads using NVG (Night Vision Goggles) was incredibly dangerous. To me it just seemed that everyone involved really couldn't see well enough to safely conduct the operation, especially since most all were just routine missions mainly for training.
  10. This is NOT my listing, however I thought someone on here might appreciate it, http://chicago.craigslist.org/nwi/ele/1042610048.html Manual Telephone Switchboard, Type: SB-86/P, Reference: TM 11-2134/4134 NSN: 5805-00-503-2660 Power supply Input: 24 VDC from 4 ea BA-200 Components: TA-207 Signal Assembly (Jack Field Section), PP-990/G Power Inverter manufactured by Kellogg Instrument Corp. Includes accessorial cables for Hughes Teletype. I apologize if this is posted in the wrong section...if so please feel free to move it to wherever appropriate or delete it. Thanks!
  11. Not to mention how the assault rifle ban will effect the Military
  12. ok, since I took this thread in the wrong direction I'll try to take it back, I found the following at: http://www.vectorsite.net/avch47.html The CH-46A had fixed tricycle landing gear, with twin wheels on all three units. The main gear was fitted in rear sponsons that also contained self-sealing fuel tanks with a total capacity of 1,438 liters (350 US gallons). Some Sea Knight variants would also be fitted with auxiliary external tanks, as discussed later. The gear configuration gave the machine a nose-up attitude that made cargo easier to load and unload. Skis could be fitted to the landing gear for operation on snow and on marshy ground. The Sea Knight could float on calm waters in an emergency, though it wasn't really an amphibian.
