  1. Hey Donald, I see you haven't been on the forum for over a month. I hope all is well.

  2. Welcome aboard. There are a lot of nice guys on this forum that will be glad to offer advice and answer your questions.
  3. Wow, i had a good day. I actually got some work done on the frame and got the first coat of paint on the body of the Willy's.
  4. There are always new reports coming out that this or that is bad for you. While I'm not totally careless about my health I live life as best I can. Yes I love pulled pork. I have a drink every now and then. I do smoke to much. I drink to much coffee. I work on models to escape from all the doom and gloom predictions. Give me a cup of coffee, a smoke and let me build my models. Thank you very much.
  5. those are two very nice builds.
  6. You did a good job, looks real nice.
  7. OK, I know it's Sunday but I haven't touch my workbench in several days. Currently working on a Willy's. Yeah I know, my workbench is rather simple, but it works for me.
  8. I don't purchase models, paints and supplies very often. I usually go on a spending spree and get things all at once. I now have a total of 23 unbuilt kits and one B17 Bomber kit to build. I have a total of 7 models in various stages of completion and one on the bench. I have all the paints I need, all the other accessories I need. The wife got her hair done yesterday, looks good too. That deal is now complete and personally I think I made out real good on it. There is nothing else I want, well maybe that 62 Thunderbird, that 50 Texaco truck looks interesting. What kind of a deal can I
  9. Reading the instruction sheet is something I always do. I lay out each tree and look them over. I locate parts I'm not sure about.
  10. Here are links to the on line people I deal with. great service, good prices. http://www.jimnohio.com/ http://www.deanshobbystop.com/home.php Forgot one. http://madmodeling.com/store/
  11. There are those that build models. I am in that class. you can at least tell what it is supposed to be. Then there are those that build a model and it looks so real that it's hard to believe it just a model. Then there are guys like you. The models you build are so real they should start and run. The artistry and craftsmanship is so over the top it beggars description.
  12. A supportive and understanding wife is indeed a blessing. I ordered eight kits from JimnOhio, then ordered two from Deans Hobby. My wife ask what about my Munsters Koach. What about the paint, distributors and other things you need. Go ahead and order them. I, being an obedient husband ordered two more kits from Deans, paint from JimnOhio and distributors and such from MAD.
  13. Having been through a few in my lifetime I know the trauma that can be caused even when there are no injuries. Our prayers are with you and your townsfolk.
  14. It has been a rather long time since I went on a spending spree buying kits, paints and other supplies. My wife has supported by purchases completely. We discuss all expenditures before they are made. We have been doing that for the 38 years we have been married. My wife agrees with and actually enjoys my hobby, though not to the extent I do. She helps with picking colors and making other suggestions, some of which I follow. I was just wondering, how many of you guys have a wife/girlfriend that supports your hobby?
