    The Quantums are UnGainLY, that's for certain!

    Will do!  He's busily scratching up a master for this project:

    Mesa AZ Engine 208 - a Pierce Quantum.  Mesa has a boatload of these.

    Scorcher?
    Try 23 consecutive days of 110+ degrees.  But, what pleases me is that after tomorrow, the temps are supposed to break and we'll have a cooling trend:  100 - 109 for the next week, then dipping down into the 90's for awhile. 
    C'mon chilly!

    Dittos to Tom's comments.   Great news, Bill!   God be with you throughout your recovery.

    Pizza?  Within the context of  chain operations:
    1.  GODFATHERS!!!   {Yes, they are rebounding/coming back!}   None better.
    2.  Papa Murphy's. 
    3.  Pizza Hut.  Gotta give PH a shout out.  The chain started in my hometown and I worked for the founders in a couple of their other early business enterprises.  Great guys and their success was well earned.
    The rest all taste alike.

    Beautiful model, A.J.!   And, neat first-hand experience with the 1:1s!
    Charlie,  Tim lives here in the Valley [of the Sun] now.  He's doing well and back into modeling.  He's an active member of a couple of the local clubs.  He and I have a couple of joint projects in the works. 
    He's inspected my original Eisbrenner and my two recently-acquired Eisbrenner/Uptown resins.  He's actively engaged in trying to beat me out of one!

    God bless, Bill.  Thoughts and prayers for your full and speedy recovery.

    Wichita, it was.

    Oh, wow.  Dinner at Gibson's Steakhouse.  Amazing! 
     
    Apparently there's a nearby Brazilian steakhouse on the agenda tomorrow.  My colleagues like to eat.  Fortunately, I'll be flying back in a Boeing 737 'wide body.'

    Well said, Greg and Harry.  Add to that: He's a true gentleman who's always willing to share ideas, techniques, or 'brainstormpower.'  And ever quick to help a fellow modeler whenever he can.  Quite a guy.

    Most excellent, Sarge!
  12. Danno added a post in a topic What do you listen to while you build???   

    Usually the Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, Sheryl Crowe, Beatles, Garth Brooks, Chris Ledoux, the Beach Boys, George Strait, Reba McIntyre, Kansas, Moody Blues, Chicago, Brian Wilson, Stan Kenton, and often the voices in Tom Geiger's head, the voices in Harry's head, and the voices in Agent G's head.  I try not to listen to the voices in my head because they generally get me in trouble.

    As always, Charlie, your rigs are gorgeous.  I hope mine ends up half as nicely.
    I also saw the one Greg built, and it too is beautiful.  I came upon a couple of old pix of an impressive one Carl Rees built.
     
    Anybody else out there have one?   Built, in progress, or unstarted;  let us know, let us see it.

    Here is a pair I just recently acquired - from the bottom shelf of a hobby store in Denver. They didn't know what they had.  I won't tell you what I paid for the pair - - it's nearly immoral.
    One . . . just ONE . . . has been my "holy grail" for the better part of 34 years. 
     I was lucky to score one of the original fibreglass shells about 14-15 years ago, but since it was one of only a dozen or so, I've never been able to bring myself to cut into it.  Now that I've scored the pair of detailed resins, I will leave the fiberglass shell in its virginal condition. 
    I suspect the amber resin may be the first generation of bodies marketed by Uptown Hobbies in New York, and I believe the white resin version may be the second generation.  Both were late 80's/early 90's while the fiberglass shell was very late 70's/very early 80's.

    Thanks, all, for the suggestions.  I'll take them all under advisement and research them further. 
    Any 'can't-miss' hobby shops?
