Threads of the Month: January.

Recommended Posts

Funny story. There was some miscommunication and we only just now remembered to do a Threads of the Month thread. Ha-ha! Knee-slapper, eh? 

Sorry. :( 

*****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Busy forum member Ultimate Steve (you all know him) (well, most of you probably know him, anyway) has decided to do things the hard way and is hardwaying his way around the kerbolar system without (much) liquid fuel. Why? You'd have to ask him, in his thread. 

*****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Zeiss Ikon found and shared this nifty bit of historical/tutorial space science which the Air Force created for its personnel back in 1965. 

Odd and interesting sidenote: the animation will be familiar to fans of vintage cartoons, since it was done by the same person who did some of the work on Rocky & Bullwinkle's show. 

*****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Although not finished yet, SinkyAce has nevertheless impressed a lot of us with the model work he/she has done so far here. 

I personally have always had a fondness for the old Klingon battlecruisers. :D

*****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Congratulations to @Ultimate Steve, @Zeiss Ikon, and @StinkyAce, and as always, our thanks to those of you who sent us nominations. 

Enjoy your well-earned badges, folks.

Wait whats the joke?

Also, these are pretty good picks. More wouldn't go unappreciated though. (I'm guessing that means we should suggest things? I don't know....)

It was a slower month for the forum, what with the holidays. We had fewer nominations.

Congratulations to this month's winners -

I am glad to see that @Ultimate Steve's thread finally made it to the TOTM! Great job!

I never heard of @Zeiss Ikon's thread until last night - how did I miss this one! Will have to check it out later on today! Congratulations on making thread of the month!

And I also never heard of @StinkyAce's thread either, but I have seen the user name on the forum! Congratulations on making thread of the month!

@Vanamonde: Do we know who the thread of the year was for 2017? Inquiring minds want to know!

Perhaps, if it was a slow month, they could take a week or two and let everyone have a chance to send in a nomination?

Good point. Maybe the moderators will still accept our nominations? Eh, @Vanamonde?

So, when are we going to see ToTY? Or we are not going to have it at all?
