Perfect modelling day.

With a temperature like this....

And wind like this...

You're almost tempted to stay inside and play at the bench.

It's supposed to get up to 20 above F. today and the sun is shinning, guess what I'm doing. I just wish the glue would harden so I could finish what I'm working on.

Kind of like how my day started at -9 with a wind chill of -42. The warmest it got with the wind chill was -13 while defueling and sumping an airplane outside. Thanks Bombardier @ Downsview. I love visiting Canada.

I would definitely stay inside,  but this is one of the reasons I live west of the Rockies-milder temps with four seasons and low humidity .  I do look forward to  your build progress though :D   Stay Warm

Hey Pat, I feel your pain I mean I really feel your pain.  Great day to stay in and build and that's what I did.

Not too far behind you here, -5 with a nice breeze!  I plan on some quality decaling today.  And keeping the woodstove fed!

A balmy 9 degrees F here.  The basement has large windows that let in lots of sunlight and I have a little space heater down there.  You can still feel the cold radiating off those walls this morning, and my ears start freezing after just a few minutes.  Need to get some 1/25 engine wiring/hosing done, so I plan to move operations upstairs until late this afternoon.

We've been hovering around those temps for over two weeks now. 

Being to the south of Lake Huron, we just don't get this cold very often at all. Certainly not for as long as this...

Glad my bench is next to the floor register. :)

Well... the cold spell broke. it warmed up by 35 degrees or so. The price? The sun went away and left 3 inches of snow in return. However it is ideal snowshoeing weather.Off we go this afternoon.

You should all just move to Sun City, AZ.  The weather is always reasonable.  OK, the summers are too hot for my liking.  There are amazing cool things to do here.  I'm certain you would all like the metal working and woodworking shops.  There are lots of nice vintage cars around my neighborhood too.  You would think that you all died and were in heaven.  There are some ranch properties around me for sale.  Come on out and give it a visit.  You should not ever be bored here.  There are a couple of great model car clubs too and model car build sessions on some Saturdays are a great event too.  The Cactus Car Club puts on the Desert Scale Classic model show and contest and gets magazine coverage as well.  I am known around here as the Master Caster.

Absolutely beautiful. One of the few things I miss about the winters. Fresh snowfall

You fellas are doing it tough. Its the middle of summer down here and I'm just in from a stroll up one of the local mountains.

76 degrees F today with a nice cooling 14mph wind. If only it was always like this. There was a big storm at the week end that caused havoc across the nation.
