  1. Ohh...I keep thinking about an outdoor railroad set up in G Scale. Problem is, I would get no enjoyment out of it during summer months due to extreme temps, crappy winters, etc. Not to mention there is not one area in my yard that is flat. It would require some major elevated track layouts.
  2. Unfortunately, we only have one day available. And Jackson Hole is crazy expensive in June. Especially when there is a conference for CRNA's filling up all the rooms.
  3. Great times! We have a trip coming up to Jackson Hole. Wife is taking CEU classes, I’m taking a relaxation break. Not as nice sounding as our Maui trip 3 years ago. But non the less, a place I’ve never been and we are taking a day to drive over to Yellowstone Park. Even being empty nesters, we still need the get always to keep from doing home chores and a vacation without inviting all the kids to show up.
  4. Very nice! I got tired of squatting down all the time when loading up my smoker and built this portable table. Seems woodworking lately is taking me away from my bench.
  5. I had big plans for this past weekend......until my youngest daughter came home from college and put me to work building her a headboard for her bed that she needs for next semester. So I was out in the garage and had my table saw set up, jointer out using it and then running the lumber through the planer. Then she has the audacity to ask me why I have all these tools. "Apparently to make you a headboard." Thrift shop down the road as 8 priced at $15-$25. But noooooo......not the latest trend on Pinterest...
  6. So I went in last week for my physical and spilled the beans and showed my Doc the progress. Since I’ve started this, they have now repainted his plane again. its now all over dark gray with smaller tail numbers with a Gamecock on the tail. Well, not starting over with paint! He gets the second generation paint job.
  7. Don’t forget about the IM PT-13 announced too. Airfix I think?

    Went to Maui almost 3 years ago. Been too long, need to go back. Only place I've ever been and said I could give up all material possessions and live like Gilligan in a grass hut and enjoy myself. Well, especially if Maryann was there.
  9. Ok, now I’ve gotten back into another bad habit. Watches. Ive always had a strange attraction to a wrist watch or a pocket watch. But recently got bit by the bug again. I just picked these two up. They're not Rolex quality, but a huge jump above my older Wenger Swiss Army watches. And now I’m looking at a Seiko Monster. Not sure if I want the Orange Monster or the Blue Coral Monster. I could buy a few HK bombers for the price of one, but it would just sit on a shelf for years on end.
  10. Awesome!! I tried with my boys, but PlayStation won in the end.
  11. I've decided to wait until the Daughter can use her little vinyl cutting machine for stencils. This one is turning out really nice and the dot matrix print pattern really stands out to me. I think I'd rather paint it all instead of painting my white base and using my set of low vis decals. One problem I didn't think of was things like the ejection seat decals. Being a two seater, and a kit of a foreign aircraft, I am having to piece together decals from multiple sets of American Aircraft decals to get what I need to match up. So far I've scavenged the triangle warning decals from an F-15 set.
  12. Problem is, my daughter is finishing up grad school and won’t have time to cut my stencils until after she’s done in 2-3 weeks. I was hoping to have it done by then to give to my Doc May 8th at my next appointment. I’ve got another set of gray, but I’d have to spray a white base first.
  13. And this is not good. I had these custom made about 13 years back. I’m trying to wrap up this F-16D build. Ive got a few areas where the decal refuses to lay down. Big bubble without any air in it. between the two O’s and above the R. I could put a tiny slit in the decal and let something soak in. But what? FWIW, I forgot how Alps printed decals will swell up with Micro Sol but not shrink back down. So yea, damaged from Micro Sol. I think my only other option is to see if my daughter can cut me some stencils with her vinyl cutting machine and just paint this on now.
