  1. Maybe you will, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll find some new women:P! It sounds more like you need a break than it is a money or space issue. I just found this hobby so I don't see your point of view. But I think I'm pretty certain people will be here if and when you return.

  2. So many appropriate and touching comments.

    I've read many of his posts in going through lots of old threads here. He was very knowledgeable when it came to this hobby. No doubt he'll be missed throughout the field.

    I had the idea the other day to send him my copy of his book for him to sign for me hoping maybe it might cheer him up. The next day I saw the news that he had been moved to hospice. A real heartbreak.

    I hope his next stop is one of comfort and beauty. 

  3. Seeing as how the paint chip is minuscule, I would touch it up with a brush and when dry I would use 8,000 & 12,000 grit polishing cloths to level it out with the rest of the paint. Or you could even touch it up with a paint pen also. If the damage is that small, I wouldn't  put too much effort into repairs, as I have plenty of other projects I could be building.

    I need adopt this way of thinking. I have 6 models that are 3/4s of the way done except for very minor flaws in the paint that I feel I can't live with but nobody would probably notice. I'd probably be learning much more by moving on. 

  4. I've been keeping Harry in my thoughts since I found out about this bad news. This is a real kick in the stomach. 

    I remember a post Harry made with a video by Little Big Town - When I Die I Don't Want to be Sober. I hope someone honors that request. I'm toasting him with a big glass of Jack Daniels now. With all the Irish blessings Harry...Here's to you...

  5. In honor of the tickets I just purchased:

    Ain't it just like the night to play tricks when you're tryin' to be so quiet?

    We sit here stranded, though we're all doin' our best to deny it

    And Louise holds a handful of rain attempting you to defy it
