  1. If anybody is into war films, I just got done watching a movie called The Forgotten Battle on Netflix. I thought it was very well done. It's filmed pretty much like how the movie Dunkirk was made.
  2. That there have been no new tool semi truck kits in a good while, now. I was thinking to myself that it would be nice to see some new trucks, but I guess there really isn't a market for any manufacturer to invest in it. Or, if there is, the licensing is too much. Pity.
  3. I really envy the ones who can get those cabs together so well. So far, that is my Achilles Heel when it comes to Italeri kits. You did an incredible job on yours! I love the color choice!
  4. I thought the truck that Foxx drives looked pretty cool! If I can find a kit and tires and rims like those on his truck. I would like to build one like his, but in black.
  5. I was recommended a movie called Threads. Kind of like a fact based horror movie of what a nuclear apocalypse would look like if it actually happened. Set in Great Britain around the early 80's. Gives a very chilling look at what might have been if the Cold War turned hot. I'm usually not the type that gets squeamish, but this movie made me a little uncomfortable.
  6. Two other cats. One appropriately named Garfield and a calico named Callie. They're 5 years old. But, I've had Whiskers since 2007. I love my other two cats, but not as much as Whiskers. He was by my side through some extremely dark times in my life.
  7. Whiskers. Sure gonna miss his nose kisses and little head butts.
  8. My beautiful cat went to kitty heaven this morning.
  9. Saw The Batman yesterday. Makes the Christan Bale movies look like soap opras. I had my doubts about Robert Pattinson at first, but I was very delighted at how he portrayed the character. Better than I expected.
  10. The Girl Next Door. Very disturbing and honestly made me sick to know there are people out there who can do that to children. I cried at the end. A very powerful movie. It's not for weak stomachs.
  11. Looks great! I love the regular stance! Looks just right!
  12. After being told my hours were being cut, my job decided I could start getting my usual hours again. Also got myself a nice little Christmas present for me.
  13. It does seem really odd. Given how much money the company makes, they can more than afford new equipment. More than likely, they are over their budget for the quarter and need to trim down wherever they can. If that's the case, why couldn't they have just told us that, instead?
  14. Well, I found out why the hours were cut. They're trying to free up funds to buy new equipment. I was told that cutting hours back frees up enough to purchase about half of the equipment we use. I work in inventory at a distribution facility. So, I'm okay with that as it is necessary for the job. If the cutback in hours is permanent, though, I'll have to look elsewhere for employment. Still, they could of used the funds that was used on the game to go towards the equipment.
  15. My job cut my hours back below 40 for the week, citing budget constraints. Cut almost $400 from my paycheck. Today, they put an arcade style game in the breakroom. I confronted them about it and was told that the game was cheaper. So, I'm trying to put food on my table and pay bills. Barely making enough to do that. Cut my paycheck almost in half. But, at least I can play hoops while on my break.
  16. It's something different. I'll give them that.
  17. I mean, couldn't they have found a smaller box or bag for this? Is it just because it's convenient or do they just grab the nearest one to them?
  18. Mine is kind of two fold. First, I like heavy metal. Second one is that I have been hit in the head with various things over the years. My mom lamented that I must have a metal head after shaking it off everytime. Name kinda stuck.
  19. Iron Man would be proud! Awesome build!
  20. Just incredible! I have been kind of on the fence about trying out these paints. But now, I will definitely give them a go as I am running out of my Scale Finishes paint. Love your build!
  21. I know Hobby Lobby isn't a one stop for all store for our hobby. It's usually just the same stuff as always. And I know they don't really cater to the plastic model hobbyist. But this is just disappointing. On the other hand, they are starting to stock some Gunze GSI products. I picked up a couple of cans of the Surfacer 1500 spray.
  22. Star Trek Picard The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Loki I have to say, I thought I wouldn't like Star Trek Picard. But, it has turned out to be a very good show. I'm eagerly awaiting season two.
  23. I'm sorry to say that any model building has taken a back burner for a while. My mother fell very ill again and I have been taking care of her. As I am her only caregiver at the moment, there just isn't really any free time. I do intend to finish it. I currently have it painted in aluminum and had started on the undercarriage before I stopped. I hope to get back to it sometime.
  24. I know a lot of people don't like paying for subscriptions, but youtube premium is literally a godsend to me. Ten bucks a month and I can watch all the videos I want with absolutely no commercials. And the Liberty Mutual commercials make me want to reach through the screen and choke the life out of both of them.
  25. Working 12 hour days, six says a week now for the past four months. All because people here don't want to do their job.
