  1. My mother very nearly died from the same, exact thing back in July.
  2. I recieved my first paycheck from my new job today. It feels so good to be working again!
  3. Currently working on the body. Something went wrong when test fitting the body to the chassis. It won't fit at all. So, something is misaligned. Good thing I glued everything with superglue.
  4. Starting to make good progress, now. Working on the body gluing on all of the bits and pieces.
  5. Spent today getting the interior finished up. Far from perfect, but I'm happy with it. Also got the engine compartment finished. In the next day or so, I'll be working on the chassis and suspension. Thanks for looking.
  6. After being off work for four months to take care of my mother, I can happily say she is in good enough health to start working again. I start my new job on Tuesday.
  7. I'm somewhat reluctant to post a wip since my time is very limited to work on models. However, I recently cleaned out my shed and came across this model I had completely forgotten I had. It was hidden in the back of the stash and the box was crushed pretty bad. I quite like the looks of this car, so I brought it in and looked it over. The body had a nice, deep crack in the left rear quarter panel. There was also a crack just below the left tail lights. So, I carefully glued it back together and ran some sprue glue into the crack and let it set for a couple of days. I guess over time, the plastic became brittle because three, smaller cracks formed around the A pillars. Easily fixed, though. Several rounds of putty, sanding, primer and paint, I have this. I'm going for a nice, clean street(ish) version.Primary color is Scale Finishes Nissan Titanium Metallic with some red thrown in here and there. Black interior with red trim and red roll cage. I just laid down the first coat of X-22 and I'll let that sit for a couple of days. Enough babbling. Here are some pics. Let me know what you think. I hope to share more with you guys in the following days. It may be a slow work in progress, though, as I start my new job next Tuesday. I really want to try and finish this one and it is my hope that this WIP will help me see through it. Thank you for reading my incredibly long post.🙂
  8. I have been getting emails from "paypal" saying that my account has been suspended.
  9. I discovered this guy on youtube a couple of weeks ago. He does metal covers of popular hit songs. He also plays every single instrument and produces the videos. A very talented guy. I believe he lives in Norway. I love his videos as he injects a little humor into them.
  10. Midway. The new movie. Just terrible acting all over. Although Woody Harrelson was actually pretty good in his role as admiral Nimitz.
  11. That would make one seriously awesome off road vehicle!
  12. That first pic, it would make for one mean street car!
  13. Drag races cancelled yet again because of rain. I've done missed four out of five races because of weather. Praying for everyone in Louisiana. The hurricane is tracking just east of where the last one came through. I think it was 15 miles to the east or so. It doesn't look good.
