    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.  

What Did You Get Today?

I know, but the room I chose is about 50% larger than her craft room.

Uh-oh, time to move some walls already???

Huh? It's YOUR house too. We bought a 4 bedroom house some 20+ years ago and I claimed one of the rooms for my hobby room/den and I still have it.

Yup.  I have a model room upstairs and a model car warehouse on the basement level!    I have an office on the main level that I originally thought would be used for my home office, but has been overtaken by my stamp collection!

That will serve you well. I have a D5100 that replaced my D80. I use a Tamron 90mm macro for model photos as Nikon only has 60mm or so and the Tamron has had very good reviews for a long time. I never got the kit with plastic lenses, but it's a good lens anyway.

Nikon has a pretty substantial lineup of micro (macro) lenses: 45mm, 55mm, 60mm, 85mm, 105mm and 200mm. I do not have the 45mm or 85mm versions, but all the others are splendid lenses.

Got a couple of the new Moebius '61 Catalinas from Tower Hobbies this afternoon.  Plans for at least two, one stock and one 2dr sedan using the Missing Link conversion I have.   I didn't realize it would have any optional parts, there is a set of 5 spoke mags.  And the tires are whitewall on one side, black on the other so they can be used either way.

You are right, it all comes down to what your needs are.

Now I'm big time jealous. I'd love to get a new Nikon, but just can't afford it now.

I certainly understand that, as I do it too. I just ordered some tools yesterday that I really don't need, not at the moment anyway, but I ordered them regardless.

Amen, brother. I do the same thing with books; no real need, as such, just a monthly gift to myself. This month I ordered two books, one on the F-104 Starfighter and the other on the F-105 Thunderchief.
