  1. Hey guys, just wanted to make a long overdue check in. Still alive and kicking but not quite 100%. I haven't been modeling at all for the past year. I've had escalating issues with pain and numbness in my right arm that has made things like holding an airbrush or even typing on a keyboard extremely painful. The doctors have finally narrowed the cause down to three herniated discs in my neck which are exerting pressure on the nerves in my arm and causing the problem. They've presented a few options but surgery is really the only permanent fix. Not looking forward to it but if I get my normal life back it will be worth it. Secondly, my Dad, fellow modeler and mentor, passed away over the summer. We used have long conversations on models, what's new, what paint are you using, etc. It just doesn't seem the same without him. I imagine at some point the mojo will return but for now I'm not feeling it. Anyway, hope all is well with all of you. I'll make an effort to check in more often and maybe seeing all the great stuff you guys do will help restore the will to get back to the bench. Take care and stay safe!
  2. First off my apologies for not being around lately, I've had absolutely no time to devote to modeling since the new year. Anyway, do you guys want to keep this thing rolling? I still have the Sherman waiting to go as a prize whenever it's decided that this thing has run it's course. Let me know.
  3. How are your CAD skills? I can do one on my resin 3D printer but I need an .stl file.
  4. I used them om my AVG P-40, probably the nicest decals I've ever used as far as ease of application and opacity.
  5. Happy modeling! Wanted to take a moment to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. My apologies for not being around much as of late, lack of mojo and things being particularly hectic at work have cut into my modeling. Hope to get a little bench time since I'm off the rest of the week though.
  6. Welcome! Feel free to post cars in the non-LSM works sub-forum.
  7. I spent a lot of time back at ARC in those days too. Had a pretty good crew at FSM for awhile though.
  8. Damn, you're getting old Frank! Seems like just yesterday we were posting at the FSM forums!
  9. Probably the Friedrich. The cleanest lines of any 109 along with a dizzying array of paint schemes and markings make it really attractive to model.
  10. Good news, Carl! Hope you're back at the bench soon!
  11. It's great paint and I think their interpretation of 70/71 is pretty close.
