Ok, Rick's got a good excuse with the whole "building shit for NASA" thing [LOL!!!].
For me I got demoted at work [we got down-sized] and there is a front property wall building plus we are "ass up" fixing up the house because we intend to sell up and move about 150km east of Perth to a quiet place in a kit home.

Life's so very funny, you just need to remember to laugh [note to the clowns].

Why would the clowns not let people into the tent? What's the point of the show if they don't? .

busy with models/modeling, but it's just that the things I am working on can't be shown on the public forums.
This reminds me- I have a similar situation about things I'm working on.
For example- for three and a half months last year I got the job of preparing and painting/ageing a wooden tank ,made for the now in release A-Team movie.
That was a dream job- right up my alley which I worked on basically on my own and I think they were pretty happy with the results
I worked on it from the wheels up to the cammo and weathering of the completed tank.
The tank was based on the Buford M8 Prototype

Wheels made with layers of medite- these needed to be textured and painted separately.





The track links were even wood! These were painted with shellac that had graphite powder mixed in to it after which they were buffed by hand. Each link was bolted in place on a threaded rod. It was a static tank.


I used lots of Bondo to create the desired textural effects.


But first the wheels were given a workover with grinder


The body at very early stages.

Hey Rick, I just looked at the author of this article in FSM on soldering and it finally promoted me to take the plunge. I've read it now dozens of times, preparing, carrying it out, trying to figure out what I do wrong. Yesterday I noticed you wrote it.

Thank you so very much!

And James, that just looks like so much fun.

Yeah it was a great little gig!
