Just out of curiosity, I looked at how far the start and end points are from me.  More than 9 hours' drive...but the end point is about 15 minutes closer.

Is 20 rooms about how many the attendees usually occupy?

My cat smokes, but only after he's had a few margaritas.

You had previously mentioned that ”all paths lead to Tail of the Dragon”.  Is this car still streetable?

Baking soda does work, but seems to require contact.  If it's air-borne only, that method may work; otherwise, it must be applied to the smelly surface.

I wouldn't leave an apple (or milk, or tomato juice, which also work) in the car, due to moisture concerns.

You can finish with an ozone machine.

... No Odor.  Says it's ideal for car interiors.  I used it when Tegan was small and had thrown up in the truck and on her car seat.  Did the trick for us.

I want one!

Nice.  Lights and everything.  Very detailed model.  I'd like to see the controller.  His  barrel roll was a bit loose, but probably hard to do remotely.  I wonder if he has collision sensors at those speeds.  Also, it would be nice to have an attitude indicator on the controller.  He'd almost need to have the complete T-bank, along with fuel and stall.

He obviously has ailerons, landing gear, and throttle, but I wonder if he has rudder and flaps.  It seems that he can steer the front wheel, also.  It must have some sort of limp home mode, and perhaps a range limiter.  It should also have an altitude ceiling.  I'd probably also include an emergency parachute.

Great video.  Loved that low level barrel roll pass.

If you're going to the expense and trouble of building a model this big, why not just build the real thing?...

This is a model of the F-104 Starfighter, one of the designs of Clarence "Kelly" Johnson of the Lockheed "Skunk Works". It was designed way back in 1952, entered production in 1954, and was in production until 1983. The U2 spy plane, which he also designed, is basically just a F-104 with longer wings.
