    Model Expo 1/24 USN Picket Boat 1

    It's been a very long and trying year and a half, but I'm finally in a position to dust off the workbench and will be moving this project from "In progress" to "Complete" in the next month or so. Wow - has it really been four years? Yikes!!! Thought for this day? "Life is what actually happens while you're busy making other plans!" :D

    Ha! Finally got Photobucket straight... Now if I can do the same with my workbench, I'm back in business!

    Model Expo 1/24 USN Picket Boat 1

    After a long delay caused by relocating to a new living space, I'm finally getting my working space functional again - look for updates to this over the next few weeks. I'm also looking at PhotoBucket to see why my pics aren't displaying - I upgraded my account some time ago

    Grumman Goose JRF-5, Conversion to Portuguese Navy G21B

    It's been quite a year! I had a change in familial status and relocation to a new space, both of which contributed to a long delay in getting *anything* done! I'm getting settled, and should have my work space functional in the next week or so, so I can pick back up where I left off in April... Life is quite the adventure...

    There's a whole world of hoses and fittings to get lost in, down there! Just remember to come up for air every now and then...

    Model Expo 1/24 USN Picket Boat 1

    There's not been much happening that's photo-worthy, though I'm continuing to make progress on the base and stands. in the interim, I finished up the title plate today. I had it done at Shapeways, based on an HO-scale building sign... The finish is Tamiya fine filler/primer, graphite, Uschi iron and steel powders, rust wash and more iron and steel powders to tie it all together.

    The wood blocks make tons of sense as they provide solid support for everything around them. I also like the jig you made for gluing up the base of the tank - you're giving all of us a great tutorial here!
