  1. Welcome back. I also took a break from modeling after getting burned out trying to force completion of some models that I lost interest in coupled with extremely busy work life. Good luck with the completion of your pilots license, that is a great achievement.
  2. I just finished his Path Between the Seas, another great read.
  3. You'll have to share some pics of your remodeled studio.
  4. Welcome Aboard! This is a great forum and you'll enjoy it immensely.
  5. Jeroen, Excellent topic. I too have been guilty of lurking and not posting. My main reason has been that my last major build didn't quite come out as nice as I had hoped. Also, this summer has been extremely busy and free time has been in short supply. However, once my busy period at work ends in a couple of weeks, I plan to dive right back into it and try to contribute more to this forum, which I think is one of the best around. Thanks for putting a fire under my rear. Cheers, Wayne
  6. Very nice! One of my favorite planes. I really like the subtle weathering; just enough to make it look used but well cared for. Looking forward to what else you have to show us.
  7. No, it's not you, I can't see any of the photos either.
  8. Wow! Very nice! Your weathering skills are first rate.
  9. Ralph, Another real nice job! You've got quite the knack for armor. Cheers, Wayne
  10. Awesome! One of my favorite aircraft released by one of my favorite kit manufacturers.
  11. Wow! Very impressive. Welcome aboard, we can't wait to see what's next.
  12. Other than scale models, I also enjoy sailing, cycling, kayaking and working on my '74 TR-6 and '54 Pontiac Chieftain:
  13. Ralph, Beautiful job! Your builds are inspiring me to venture into the armor arena. I just have to find some time to finish the builds I have started on the bench. Cheers, Wayne
  14. Ralph, Excellent job! Man, your skills have improved tremendously; your models keep getting better and better. Wayne
  15. Ralph, You're a tank building machine! i'll be following along with this one. Wayne
  16. Great job so far. Seems there's an armor revival going on here.
  17. Congrats Ralph! I have to agree with the others, you did a great job on the all black Ju88.
  18. or maybe a figure of Indiana Jones fighting some some bad guys like in "The Last Crusade".
  19. Ralph, The detail in that kit looks real good. You did a great job on the interior. I'm going to have to start building som armor. Wayne
  20. Ralph, You're really tempting me to get into armor. That's if I ever finish my Tamiya Spitfire!. I'm really enjoying your builds. Wayne
  21. Ralph, Looks great! You really seem to have a knack for building armor. Cheers, Wayne
  22. I was cleaning up my pictures folder on my laptop and came across these pictures I took last fall. These three aircraft were in town during their New England tour and are maintained and operated by the Collings Foundation. For a fee, you can catch a ride in these birds. It is always nice when they come to the Plymouth Airport because they let you walk right out onto the tarmac and get up close and personal with the planes and pilots. The B-17 is near and dear to my heart because my father's uncle was a radio operator in one (S for Sugar), which was shot down over Germany on 11 January 1944 after which he spent the remaining days of the war in Stalag 17B. I wish I had more time to take more pictures but I will try again next year.
