In Topic: What Pleased You Today!

Yesterday, 11:56 AM

Six months ago, I was honestly near death. Today, I was able to do some household chores, get to the grocery store and had enough energy to do my laundry. To most of you, seems like easy stuff, but trust me, it's a struggle. So I'm extremely pleased to have made such progress! Now if I could just get my model building back on track.

Congratulations, Wayne.  I'm glad to hear that things are improving, I hope it keeps up.

I found this little guy on a heavily traffic foot path at work the other day.  He got stuck on the pavement since the grass was to high for him to climb back on either side.  We took this photo and returned him to the lake.  No doubt born this year,  literally coin size.

Nice save there, Tom!  What a cute little guy.

 

Today, I was pleased that I was able to light up the grill for the first time this year, even if I had to be in a little bit of a rush about it.  Didn't do anything fancy, just some burgers, hot dogs, chicken thighs, and some nice chicken sausages.  Hopefully I'll be able to get into slow cooking some ribs soon, and I'm looking forward to experimenting with some homemade dry-rubs.

Parked at NNL East, I saw an AMC SC/Rambler, a Chevy II and a Honda S2000.

 

On the drive home from the show, I saw a Plymouth Prowler.


In Topic: Favorite primer for airbrush?

I've been using decanted Krylon primers with good results.  It's much more cost effective than hobby primers.

 

Before I started using the decanted primers, I was using Testors Model Master Superfine Lacquer Primer.  It always went on beautifully.  However, the stuff came pre-thinned in Testors 3/4 oz. bottles, at the same price as unthinned Model Master paints, so in effect you would get much less usable paint out of a bottle for the same price.

I tried to smoke a trout once, but I couldn't keep the damm thing lit. Must take a real man to smoke a ham.


I like to smoke mozzarella. It's hard to keep it going once it starts to melt, but it's worth it!

In Topic: Whats the weirdest kit in your stash?

This is not technically in my stash, but my wife and daughter each have a copy of this kit waiting to be built:
