    I'm sticking around a few days to reply to posts/PM's/etc. But yes, I definitely don't want to, however all my stuff is overgrowing my space... I may have to thin things just a little.... but *ONLY* just a little. I definitely WILL return to building, that's a fact. I don't want to have to start ALL over again like I did in 2012 when I got back into it the 1st time.
    Thank you. I was 289lbs, and I knew I needed a change, but couldn't bring myself to start that change. And, somehow I've had literally no withdrawals to pop/soda and caffeine and sugar! The secret was to apparently drink alcohol and have a really bad hangover and feeling like death to the point of starting a diet! (part of that reacquainting with an old friend LOL) So now I'm down to 265-ish. I know the first 20lbs. is easy to lose, after that it gets tough! If I'm under 250 before the end of the year I'll be surprised. 
    I will return at some point for sure. But I need to take a break, as much as I don't want to. I feel like it's a burden to have to make time to build and I don't want it to be a burden. I want to enjoy it.

    Taking some forced time off/away, for the foreseeable future...
    As much as I've wanted to build lately, I just haven't been able to. I accepted a management position at my company in the middle of March, and I've been working too many hours to even think about building. I've also been trying to be more healthy, and exercise as I've gained too much weight over the past 9 years at this desk job. So far I've lost 24 lbs since the end of May. I'm also trying to actually become enthused about working on my full size 1:1 cars again, and I've been reacquainting with old friends, etc. 
    Plus, the Photobucket situation was sort of the nail in the coffin for me on forum posting. I don't have nearly the time to go thru, and re-edit all my posts, sign up for another hosting site, etc. So, for now, at least for a while til things calm down at my work, this is goodbye. 
    I've learned a lot of great things and met a lot of great people. I will miss going to shows as well, and occasionally seeing my builds in magazines, but I gotta do what I gotta do. 
    Thanks everyone, take care.

    HobbyTown USA down here in Fields Ertel off of Cemetery Rd. has 2 of them. They ordered 3 of them and 1 was for me. They just got them yesterday Al. I can snag one if you want. I work like 5 minutes from there.

    I've pulled down all but one album from my photobucket and will be closing my account out as soon as all my albums have been downloaded.

    How big? 
  6. JTalmage added a post in a topic Scratch Building an Aussie Ford Falcon **New update,24/6/17**   

    Amazing. Glad to see it didn't fade off into the history of the forum
  7. JTalmage added a post in a topic AMT 32 Ford Roadster Gluebomb   

    Looks awesome! I'd leave the hood off permanently because it has that attitude!
  8. JTalmage added a post in a topic What's next from Moebius - How about a 70 F-100 4x4 and a 65-66 F-100   

    Any preproduction shots of the '65-'66 yet? I'm trying to contain my drool
  9. JTalmage added a post in a topic Gauging interest - A Back to Basics / Slump Buster CBP   

    I've used my bench as a shelf right now. Got promoted to management now all I do is work. Not sure when I'll build next. 
  10. JTalmage added a post in a topic What's next from Moebius - How about a 70 F-100 4x4 and a 65-66 F-100   

    Love the idea of the '65-'66 Fords. Some of the best looking trucks around. 
    I agree, the 50's-60's Dodge trucks would be an awesome and untapped market too. Those trucks were so different looking they were neat. 
     
    Just make sure the castings are cooled off before tossing em in the box though

    Yep.... I WANT ONE!
     
     
  12. JTalmage added a post in a topic Balancing (too many?) hobbies/life?   

    I very much have the same issue. And can't seem to do any of them. I think my 50hr a week job doesn't help LOL... plus the 10+ hrs of driving I do each week for work definitely cuts into my time. (I live an hour from work)
    I have 4 project cars ('77 Mustang II, '88 Mustang hatchback, '94 Mustang GT, and a '93 Lincoln Mark VIII.... yes... I know... way too many irons in the fire)
    Plus model building
    video games
    musical instruments (I seem to collect them more than I do attempt to play them)
    Sadly I want to get into more hobbies... I'd like to try my hand at metal detecting. 
     
    I have definitely burdened myself with the things I love

    Thunder Alley... hmm... never heard of that movie... now I'm going to have to try and find it.
  14. JTalmage added a post in a topic Anyone make a resin '68 Ranchero?   

    Thanks, I'm using the bed and B pilar/back half of the room from the AMT '65 or '66 El Camino. They look more like the Ford styling. I keep forgetting to take pictures of it. I'll see if I can dig some up.

    I'm working on creating a '68/'69 that will eventually possibly be casted. It's based off the AMT '69 Torino Cobra
