  1. Man, all that horizontal space would be so trashed in no time around me. I’ve actually come up with a new plan for my area. I think I can fit in a paint booth that’s 4’ wide and 18” deep. Been in the new home 9 months and I’m finally giving this area some thought. Don’t know why I waited so long.
  2. My wife tested positive yesterday too. Came home Thursday evening starting a fever of 100.3 and it got up to 102. Body aches, just flu like symptoms. Slept a lot next day Took her to get tested yesterday morning, results last night. She’s already feeling much better today and anxious for a glass of wine this evening.
  3. I’m mentally drawing up my new bench in my head. While looking online at pics I see a common trend of shelves on the back of the bench just tall enough to hold paint bottles. Some of these benches look like the bench of more of a paint collector rather than a builder. My current paint storage is basically a tool box with short drawers full of Tamiya and old Model Master paint. The new trend of the taller plastic bottles won’t fit and they wind up eating space on my bench. Giving some serious thought to eliminating the roll around toolbox just to help reduce floor clutter and go with custom shelves I can build. Maybe a few small pull out drawers for PE bending jig, air brushes, etc.. Anyone build or have the wall of paint and regret it? Got any nice bench pics you can share?
  4. I just bought another Colt tonight online. It’s the baby 1911, the .380 Govt. Model in stainless. I’ll post a pic when I get it. Had one years ago (took my CWP qualification with it) but a friend talked me out of it only to have it stolen by a parking valet. What’s bad was he didn’t notice it was gone until a few weeks later. I forgot I already had an image from an email with the seller. 🤣
  5. Another employee tested hot though.
  6. First test results are back negative. I have to take another on Tuesday when I return to work (as long as I have no symptoms)
  7. Coworker came back from our Christmas break and didn’t know he was positive. He just had mild sinus congestion. We went to lunch together Tuesday and now I’m waiting on my test results and work has me on quarantine until next Tuesday unless my results come back hot.
  8. LOL! It was just a light sprinkle. But honestly, it was only the second time in 22 years it spent the night outside. First time was when I loaded it the night before on the trailer to take to the exhaust shop first thing in the morning. That was about 7 years ago. With the new house only having the single car garage, it might be getting a few more back yard camp outs if I have to do a large woodworking project.
  9. Some of y’all might remember I moved back in May with no time to get back to the bench in sight. I had all of my kits in a rental storage unit up until September when we had our 12X24 storage building delivered and we vacated the rental. Of course I’m not putting the stash in a non-climate controlled building, so they’ve been still boxed up in the “man cave” with plans to build loft storage in my garage that is semi-climate controlled. Well this week I got busy with the build. Started on Sunday afternoon and wrapped up today. I also added new LED lighting strips throughout the garage and washed the ‘66. The start of it Sunday Here’s the first shelf for kit storage I put up back in the summer Now I finally get to focus on building my new building bench and paint booth. No more folding cafeteria table for me! Building something with drawers I can label for sprue numbers the kits I’m working on and not have to share the bench with the open kit box.
  10. OMG! I see a Lake Life sign on your end table my wife hasn’t bought yet. Maybe I can make her one in the shape of SC before she finds one and buys it.
  11. You’ll put your eye out with that thing! I have the full size leg lamp in the kitchen.
  12. Look for Resinprince on Hyperscale and shoot him a PM. He’ll fill you in.
  13. He mentioned another temporary shut down a few weeks or months back on Hyperscale.
  14. Just last Monday we had to have our old girl of 14 years put down for one last nap. She was suffering pretty bad with arthritis of her spine and legs, stayed in the same spot in the corner of the bedroom all day and started having incontinence issues. This pic was from 4 years ago. Of course we have this guy that’s about 4 years old. He can be a bit of an asshole at times. Sit there, stair at you and push your iPhone off the night stand. The other night it was my phone, then the wife’s and then her alarm clock. how he spends the evening. He’s doing this right now as I type this.
  15. Would have been nice if Trumpeter would go back and re-tool some of their other major kit flaws. A-7 Corsair’s come to mind as their worst. Looking at my build using the Zacto correction vs. an out of box kit build is a real eye opener. I keep reading that the A-10 also has front fuselage issues. Too wide? Paul Fisher was working on a correction when his world fell apart.
  16. yea, just last week I started trying to organize the ammo fort. Stashed away 3500 rds. of 9mm, lost track of how much .30-06 I packed in cans (Cabela’s had a deal for 6 .50 cal cans for $52 shipped) I thought I was going to have left over cans. Nope, gotta get more. Probably 1k 5.56, 500 rds of 7.62X39, lost track of my .308 too. I’ve got ammo can trays on order and I’m heading over to Harbor Freight tomorrow for furniture dolly's to be able to move them around. Hoping I can make room to set up the old reloading bench in the man cave. Unfortunately the wife has to have her mark on the territory as well and there’s a useless old antique buffet taking up one wall. The safe is just to the left of the big black ammo cabinet the can is sitting on.
  17. This is my case that started me down the path I built these for my die cast car collection
  18. Very nice Kevin! I got into woodworking when I built my display case for my models. Started out with some basic tools, now have a Jet 14” bandsaw, jointer, planer, better contractor size table saw, track saw and lots of others. I keep my tools on the bench top size except my bandsaw and drill press. It’s been a whirlwind 8 months since buying our new home and there has been no time for models or any woodworking outside of necessary projects for the home. I’m hoping by this time next year I’ll be back at both full swing.
  19. Ernie, that's horrible. I lost Mom a year ago this past September. She was in assisted living for almost 3 years and then into a nursing home from Jan to Sept. Although she was bed ridden, she also suffered from lung issues where she could not clear her body of CO2. She was always hallucinating and coming up with stories that would have been believable if she wasn't bed ridden. I will say though, her care wasn't as horrific as your Mothers. Glad to see you're back.
  20. Yep, 24’ with a Mercury 150 four stroke. It’s a 2019. The couple bought it new in July of ‘19 to pull the grandkids and now they relocated to DC. Might have 60 hours time on it. We paid about $4000 less than the same model I’ve seen for sale on line.
  21. Not model related, but looks like I picked up something else today.
  22. Thinking about it, but the original studio model was never lit and the thick resin makes it a little difficult.
  23. Just got this one in the mail. Not my pics, but stole these off the web. It’s the 1/350 Klingon D-7
