LOL! It`s killing me too. :D :) Oh, for more time......
Hopefully I`ll have some progress pics for you guys soon.


I hope you do! I love the large scale Corvettes, but hell, any large scale build is great to follow. The detail in the kits, and the ability to add our own detail to them, makes these large scale kits a ton more for fun that the "normal" 1/24 type kits. :D

That paint job looks incredible. GREAT job on that!

This may sound weird, but I just got back from the hospital after a severe aggravation of a Groin Strain. Was just cleaning up around the house when I made a sudden lateral movement to my left, and the pain in my left groin I've been putting up with for the past 6 months just became unbearable. I HATE doing it, but I had to go to the E.R. since at 1:00 A.M. on a Sunday Morning, there will never be a walk-in clinic open. (I was cleaning up around the house as I had moved stuff around earlier in the day and saw all the dust sitting around here. So I tried to clean things up when the incident happened). I was in a ton of pain and couldn't fall asleep, so that's why I went to the E.R. Amazingly, because of Daylight Savings time, I left the E.R. before I got there. :D I arrived at 1:30, and left at 1:29. Turns out I have a Grade 2 strain of my left groin muscle that I've had since mid May, but aggravated this past night. I was happy when the doctor who examined me said that there's nothing super damaging here and that physical therapy has a 75% chance of clearing this up. But she also said that groin injuries can take over a year to heal since it's a part of the body that can't be fully rested unless you are immobilized. I was able to ensure that I wasn't prescribed any opioid medications since I'm too tolerant to those after so many injuries in the past, and that I'd rather not go to sleepy-fantasy land after taking them. I was only given some Naproxen to reduce inflammation and a muscle relaxer (not Cyclobenzaprine) to release the tension in the area.

It sucks that I'm hurt, but I still have my insurance to cover the E.R. visit. No x-rays, CT Scans, or MRIs were done so the visit will be fully covered. Also, due to the Daylight Savings Time change, I wasn't able to have insurance cover the prescriptions. :( Thankfully, they were generics so it only cost me $30. :) I just hope this heals soon. I survived Hurricane Sandy, but don't need some nagging groin injury to keep me out of commission. These things don't feel good.

What happened to all the pictures? All I see are question marks.


I've got the images held on imageshack.us so I wonder if their server was temporarily down for a bit. I can still see them and can see them at the imageshack.us site, and they are all set to public viewing. I'd try reloading the pages again and see if they show up. May just be a temporary thing.

Wow. I really can't wait for the day for 3D printing to become cost-effective and efficient so that the manufacturers can start producing kits using 3D printing. Imagine not having to remove mold lines, sink marks, pits, etc. etc.

That engine looks incredible. Great paint job too!
