    Hello;all
    Just lucked into this sight,and registered in short order, Friends call me A.T.-
    it's a long story. would love to exchange info with you all, I have a pretty strong background in art, modeling and fabrication,(23 yrs spec fx makeup/model maker in film.)so you hobbyists axe me anything, if I don't know the answer---you'll never see the look of mute confusion on my face.
    I have a high IQ, though only a jr high education, I have esoteric/eclectic Taste's and Joe six pack sense, you know, a freak.

    Where in the bleak Mojave desert do you live?

    I'm behind the orange curtain, south of you.

    Thanks 109 that little scribble was the most difficult thing I ever painted, a process of twelve yrs. So much paint I think it could take flak easier than it's subject. I still paint warplanes, but i'm sticking to fighters from now on.
    To syscom3, I live in California city, real close to the river Styx, in a house so cheap I couldn't say no. I hope to sell it and head to the Pac No WEST, Wa or Ore, I hate the dessert.

    Oop's just spotted you wildcat. Three or four dozen crummie ones, having said that iI'll list the good ones. Vidodrome, Dante's peak, Miracle mile, A nightmare on Elm st 2, Breast men (Showtime fims), and The offspring. the last one is no Gone with the wind, but I got to do a gag on Vincent Price. And it was his last horror flick, so that pretty much made my life.

    Welcome Joe! California City?!? I used to fly into there all the time. Spent 7 years working out of Mojave Airport. I also played with warbirds there as well. The desert was ugly but in that area it was "Aviation Mecca." Hope you stick around for a while.

    I used to go 4-wheeling at Cal City.

    Many fine memories around there in those unbuilt subdivisions.

    Yes, off road driving. I bought my first 4WD pickup in 1983 and California City was one of the places I used to camp out at.

    Lanc, for reference.... California City is just north of Edwards AF base.

    Its also home to the Mojave Desert Tortoise Preserve. On more than one occasion while driving off road, I would see one of them in my path and get out and get it moved out of the trail.

    Thanks all,
    Flyboy: I suppose if I could fly I might like it better, one cool thing I saw at a [email protected], a guy has 3 or 4 full size P40 props(phoney mock ups not propelers.)just sitten there. Erich: No just 5, 17's, no battle but a lot of anxious airmen. You might be seeing the topmost fortress's shadow on the clouds. Syscom3: I salute your consideration of our torti. Gnomey: I hope my un?funnyPM was cool, I sent it cause I dig churchill. One Question:what in the hell are Argies?

    Argentinians, people native to Argentina, you may have heard of a island group known as the Falklands? we've been involved in fighting with them down there at various times through history.........

    We do a lot of name shortening, for example you are a Yank, I'm a Brit, Austrialians are Aussies or Diggers, New Zealanders are Kiwis, Argentinians are Argies and i still refer to some Germans as Jerries :lol:

    I've always loved the "Their finest hour", and the "So few" quotes, a great inspiration in such desperate times. I heard somewhere Churchill intentionally held his fingers that way as a message to the Nazi's, although perhaps the source was being facetious
