  1. Thanks a lot Gents. I see a couple of shelf units being put together in my future today. Kinda like big ol' Lego sets.
  2. I thought they might be boneless......... Enjoy your time no matter what you're doing Brother Chris.
  3. Nice changes and add-ons. I look forward to more.
  4. Hello Again Pholks !!! I've been a very busy boy these last 2 / 3 weeks. The house is slowly getting squared away. Actually, I spent 4 days lining the kitchen cabinets and drawers. An amazing product is Contact Zip N Fit shelf lining. It can be ripped in 1/4" segments, strips, blocks, whatever. It might even be a good material for model display bases when a mirror just won't do. I included a pic at the end. Aaaaaanyway, I started putting the hobby room together. The desk to the far left and the table on the right are new. The table is going to get a hole cut out for a downdraft airbrush station. A TV will go above the dresser between the other desks. On the opposite wall ( where the contents of my room are currently still in boxes ) will be two 5 tier shelf units for kits and a cabinet for storage of materials and paint bombs. Next to that will be another matching table for photography. That oughta cover it for now. I wonder where that Charlie Allen build got off to? Enjoy the pics.
  5. Tim, you forgot to warn Brad about the......oh, wait. He's gonna read this. Never mind. Best of Luck Brad
  6. There you go again Tim. The detail and time you've put into those batteries is shocking. I'm amazed at the power you have to jolt us with those juicy intricacies. That's positively powerful stuff and I can't find a negative thing to say.
  7. I likes it Brad. New tip for me using the craft wire. I've been using solder, but I like that look a lot better. So ya' know, I'm still a couple of weeks away from getting back to the bench. Not to mention it's hard to find my desk in this cluster. Worst of all, most of my Minions bailed on me. Something about, "Nothing evil going down right now." Or whatever, "Cheereet kindo meleface waawaa!!!", means? I've sent one loyal follower out to track them all down. Actually, I got all the stuff to make it from Build A Bear during a mall sidetrack. Finally, for informational purposes Brother Mr. Teresi, it took me about a half an hour to compose this one. That'll be $30.00. P. S. I had to edit this. That'll be another 10 bucks.
  8. Since my hobby room currently IS an unbuilt model, at least I can still contribute with a previously built one:
  9. ....and I am not so patiently waiting. Until I get my room up and running, I have to get my fix vicariously through the works of others. Hup-Hup Mister. My happiness is totally dependent on you. No pressure, but now would be good. Tim, I checked the pics you posted carefully for funny comment material and I got nuthin'. I'll try harder next time.
  10. I'm all about that Karma thing Brother Tim. I've made a lot of sacrifices over the years, both personally and professionally, making every attempt to please others and assume responsibility for their happiness. My turn.
  11. You got it my Brother. It won't exactly be the first party thrown though. I got invaded. Thank Gawd they don't take up too much room and they'll sleep anywhere. The pool is awesome Gene. Man, I gotta hit that thing as often as possible. I've been basically dormant for the last 6 years and it's time to whip this old piece of, uh, stuff, into shape. That's the main reason for my insistence on one when I was house hunting.
  12. Ray, I've never known you to be wrong. It will be a great place to build and my motivation is redoubled when I think of the builds that will escape my evil laboratory of HoK chemical combos. I'm all over that Bob. Still a lot of items that are higher on the priority list, but I'm gonna' use a Dremel to grind 'em out.
  13. This installment of The Chronicles of Zilla is entitled Uptown Funk because that's the video I used to christen my first night in my new diggity digs.Then I listened to the Minion version. I pulled the final stuff out of the old joint yesterday. Then this morning I christened the pool. No, not that way, by swimming in it.I just bought a vacuum so excuse the greenery in the water. Mmmmmm, algae. As you will see by the pics, the hobby room won't be up and running for a day or fourteen. I've got shelves and storage cabinets to buy and a counter top for the photography stand where the blue shelves are. The front yard is a blank slate, landscaping-wise. Might take some of that dark rock and put a Batman logo in the middle. Seriously. It should reflect the personality of the resident, right? Can you believe that all of this was in a one bedroom apartment? Just because I'm that kind of guy, I want to say that none of this is intended as rubbing it in anyone's face. I simply want to share my happy news with my MCM Family. Enjoy the pics y'all.
  14. This is just what I needed. I'm busting my butt packing for tomorrows move, decide to take a break, sit down take a deep breath, click, I see my bud Tim has an update and THERE IT IS!!!!!!! A hair clip being used for a clamp. My man, you are The King of Construction Improvisation. I'd bow and bend a knee, but I couldn't get back up at this point. Break's over. See ya' in a few days.
  15. Belated Thank You Vince. Moving Day is Tuesday. Hope to be back online that nite, if not Wednesday. There have been some speed bumps. Can't get the garage floor painted early, there are no cable hookups anywhere in the house, not even a cable box on the property, the roof trim didn't get finished even though it was only half done for curb appeal. It will all be worth it soon. Happy Modeling My Friends
  16. Must be nice to have access to multi million dollar equipment so you can use it to cut a $4.00 piece. Incredible Chris. Take every advantage Bro.
  17. Thought I'd take a break from packing and see what people who still actually work on models are up to. Wowza Brad. Well done sir on the axle and leafs (leaves?). I hear ya' on dropping stuff. Not me, but I've heard it happens to other people.
  18. Yo Chris. I'm diggin' the rear window. Have you given any thought to getting it laser cut? It might be a viable option to save time and labor. Especially time. We all know how important time is, right?
  19. Thank you Art. I miss you man. Thank you Michael. Thank you Danno. I miss you too man. Thank you Brother Chris. I have an Iwata compressor and a Paasche H Series Single Action hand grenade and I'm ready to pull the pin. With my teeth. Hit a speed bump on the road to home ownership today. Realtor was one hour late for the final walkthru. I was on fire to start. I have always believed in The Lombardi Rule. The Coach always told his players, "If you're ten minutes early, you're five minutes late." Being late is not just rude, it's disrespectful. When we got into the house to check the repairs, the only thing done was the pool was cleaned. None of the inspectors' repair recommendations were done. I lost it.......... So, I went to Outback for a steak, came home and medicated myself. We'll see what tomorrow brings. I'm thinking Sunshine, Rainbows and Unicorns. Or a Fire Breathing Dragon.
  20. It's semi-official. House closed today, I get keys tomorrow or Wednesday. Yeeeee-Haaaaa!!!!!!!
  21. Please don't hit me. Ya' know what would be kewl Brad? No, not Bacon Brownies. Take a piece of wire insulation or heat shrink tube like at the top of the tank, cut a split in it and use that for a cushion under the tank on the bracket. I'm not saying Bacon brownies wouldn't be cool, but that would be better. Don't feel singled out. I do this to John and Chris and Tim all the time.
  22. You've still got your first build and I can't remember mine. I think it might have been an Austin-Healy, but I wouldn't bet the farm on it. I know for a fact that I did NOT put spoilers on it.
  23. Another fine build knocked out of the park Ray. The interior is incredible and the wheels draw attention to the whole deal. Well done sir.
  24. Thanks for the thumbs up Michael (See what I did there?) I know how slow it's been here in the past, but for instance, I signed a dozen documents electronically, on my phone ! In the olden days of yore I would have had to wait until they were all ready and / or make multiple trips to the mortgage company. The closest it's going to be to done is putty before primer. I'll do that in my new hobby room. Got a bug and did the nose tonite. It's exactly what I envisioned.
