    Very nice, unusual project. I like it, I'll be watching.

    Back after a year gone
    I'm back after being gone for gone for almost a year. After hip surgery,  2 knee surgerys  and shoulder surgery  in 3 years, my sweetie was diagnosed wih Parkinsons. The surgerys required a career change on my part, and the Parkinsons required a total life style change for my wife. This created a big change in our lives, it left little time for hobbies. Things have started to calm down some, but things will never be the same. Priorities tend to change when these things happen. I know I sound like I'm complaining,  but thats not my intent. I still have the best wife a person could want, even with her illness. But my time that I need to spend with her is more than what I would have needed to a year ago, but it is worth it. I will be around some but the hobby is now less important than it used to be.
    Maybe some day in the future I'll have something off the workbench to share again, hopefully soon.

    Another job well done, Harry. I love watching your builds, they are always quality builds. Sorry to hear about your health problems.  I hope they, the doctors,  are able to figure it out soon.

    Wait till I tell the Mrs that I need to start buying donuts at the Wal-mart, for my models, she already hates my hobby, this won't help.

    Very nice. I'm not much of a aircraft guy, but that is a good looking model.

    I'm not all that crazy about the rat rod movement,  but I love this!  This is so very creative, looking forward to the finished product. 
  9. uncle potts added a post in a topic Another Pocher Mercedes building. Cabrio Special.   

    I'm impressed.  Any model can be a challenge for someone who has been away from the hobby for a while, but a Pocher kit seems rather ambitious for a first project.  You are doing well.  Keep up the good work,  and please keep us posted.

    Yes it is, it's my castle, and i'll do as i please. Just as soon as she tells me what that is. Actually she's ok with my hobby, but I've got to admit, the only place my stuff fits in with the rest of the decor is my man cave. And I'm ok with that.

    I can't see a model car in it, and I tried...
  12. uncle potts added a post in a topic Our police officers   

    The problem is that there are fewer people today that have respect for life. Police are needed  because there are so many in society that do not respect the lives and property of others. Its too bad that there are people who would champion the cause of one group of people, at the expense of another. Anyone who thinks that trumpeting that the cause of any group, doesn't minimize all others is kidding himself.
    No officer, or his family,  should have to worry about wheather or not they will make it home at night. This is a diturbing trend.
    On a lighter note, I think Capt. Clay Higgins from the Laundry Township, is an officer that deserves our respect, because he cares about his job and the people in his community, and he's entertaing to watch.

    I am amazed at your ability to adjust the build and scratchbuild any missing parts and get so much done so quickly. And you do such a clean job. I always find your builds a joy to follow, and are educational as well. As always thanks for sharing.
