Smitty, I’m well past 50 and certain parts of my body don’t respond as they nice did.  So I hopped about on my right leg while holding my left leg as straight out as I could, for as long as I could.  I expect that visual gets the point across!

Hat book is one seriously good reference, but no real three views...

Ernie, I have these for drawings:

They're in 1/72 though

You found the doggie in the box?

Cool.

She came in a box, at least for the plane ride. :)

She's been really great so far. Might be tough to give her back in a couple months.

Ooh, nice.

How's the quality of the casting?

Grey Matter F4U-1A engine/accessory bay. Outstanding resin. One of these days I'll do a -1A with all that. Should make a great looking model.

LOOOOOOOL

My venerable iPhone is going to be put on the back burner. Not me.   :rofl:
As of yet, no plans to retire any time soon. Nine or ten years, maybe. We'll see...

Not for me, I just paid for it:

It's the birthday present for our youngest son when he turns 6 in April.

Not the cheapest option but he loves riding so much and he's been on hand me down bikes from his brother I thought he deserved one that wasn't just new to him. I think his mind will explode when he sees this.

Me I’ve been on a pistol kick lately. No clue why, but when I was shopping for a target pistol for Joy, I saw a CZ Shadow 2 competition pistol.  The sales guy said everyone so far who held one bought one.  I’m here to say he wasn’t kidding.  :-/

Now I can get back into competitive handgunning. Yeah, another hobby.  LOL!

stock pic, but this is it. 9mm competition pistol molded perfectly to my hand.  It weighs over 3 lbs empty! But that means it’s rock steady on a pistol course.  Not exactly a defensive gun. But a very, very good match gun.

Nice, I like quality tools. Last week I treated myself with brand spanking new 10 inch table saw. Ridgid brand with relatively steady blade and solid frame, beefy slides and sweet, squared fence. Life is good :)

Agreed there, Martin.  The Shadow 2 is a precision instrument. Specialized competition sights, aggressive grips, a really light trigger, and perfect balance for competition.  Absolutely useless as a carry piece or fighting tool, but perfect for sanctioned competition.  The Czech factory team kicked butt last year with this exact same rig.

Hopefully I can get it to our range on the weekend and put some miles on it.  I think it’ll make me look good. :)

This is calling your name if you ever get down here...

Nice one! 
Sad reminder. Sort of...

I owned a collection of vintage military and police SIG P210 guns, also including a not-so-vintage P210 Supertarget. With our moving to NZ already in sight, I sold them all off to a fellow collector, shooter and hunting companion. Next Monday, I'm going to return my gun, ammo and hunting licenses. For the time being, I will have to resort to my bare (knife) hands and M18 Claymores to keep the Possums off my lawn in NZ.

Ernie that ceramic finish suits well to the colour of your eyes.

Ivan, careful with those Claymores so you won't obliterate the local population of hobbits.

Edit: I guess the hairy legs will be the only reminder of the unauthorized trespassers :)

Hobbits are immensely overrated. Hobbits, Possums. Either of them a hoggish bunch of scallywags.  :D

Did I mention this?
I've got legs like a deer. Maybe not quite as slender but just as hairy. ;)

Ivan the CZ.75 takes one feature from the Sig, an inside the frame slide. That alone makes it so much tighter and more accurate. 

The design has so many 1911 and Browning Hi Power features, but it’s got the added benefit of 60 years of learned technology since John Moses Browning designed those classics.  The Czechoslovaks certainly make good firearms. Not bad with airplanes, either.
