Morning all,

Well, back to work for today and tomorrow.   :(  I think I could easily get used to this not working stuff.   ;)

I wrapped up the boat build.  I just need to take some final pictures and update my build thread.   :D  Just in time to clean off the workbench and kick off a new build for the new year and the challenge.   ;D

Have a great one!

Good morning!  Not much going on today hobby-wise for me.  Hope to get back into it this weekend.  Be safe!

Good Morning All,

Just wanted to say hi. Getting ready to walk out the door to go to Mom's PET scan.

I hope everyone has a good day.

Howdy!


I think I am going to have to end up building a stick building in progress for the 2021 Challenge. The big box hobby store is very low on craft paints. What is up with that?!

Good morning everyone!

Like ReadingBob, only two days to fill out this miserable year.

2021 is looking much brighter, the Queen has declared that i can take my shingle down in 2021. Finally.
She kept saying one more year and i finally reminded her that we are starting to run out of "one more years".

I hope everyone can see the light at the end of this covid tunnel and it is not an oncoming train.

Morning, all.

Will be heading out to work soon.  We got about a foot of snow, and I'm not sure I can get out of the driveway to the single lane someone plowed in the street.  :o ]Both counties are a no tow zone, though the interstate looks pretty clear.

Morning all,

Nothing new here but I'll get into something layout out related. I've been rethinking some structure locations and after more than a year will probably move two back where they were. More on that in the A&S thread.

Have a safe and healthy day ya'll.

Morning. Went for another covid test yesterday after not hearing anything from the first. OT and PT nurses came yesterday for some evaluation for her out patient therapy. One left me with a list that they would like see done to help when she's in the bathroom. Time for more coffee...

Hey Der Folks!


Low 50's and rain, then temp drop with snow.  Sorry I have not been around much, the allergic reaction to my hands put me down big-time.  Was feeling a bit bummed, and unmotivated lately. Things are looking up though.


Have a Great Day All!

A BIG Thanks to all the folks who share their knowledge, and for giving me the inspiration to push the limits in this great hobby!

Jamie - I've noticed Craft Paints have been pretty well picked over for the last six months or so.  I guess those who elected to lock down/stay home have been taking up hobby's to keep themselves occupied.

Happy Hump Day!

Gray again this morning,  chilly too. 

Like Jaime, on my trip to Hobby Lobby yesterday, the Vallejo section was a bit sparse, at least for the ones I wanted.  The regular craft paint area though seemed well stocked.  Did finally fine a light gray chalk to experiment with.

Satisfying evening on the layout and structure build last night.  Has me pumped to get back to it.

Everyone enjoy the day, safely, and keep your distances.

Checking in here from central PA.  Weather is sunny and seasonable.  I need to refill the bird feeders. Maybe some more layout work later if time.

Cheers to all.

Morning all.

Craft paint supplies have been short due to COVID so stores have been reliant on their own supplies or from local distro. I’ve heard that a few stores have been fully re-stocked, so maybe supply chain is re-opening.

Have a good day everyone!

Good morning! I'm going to finish out the year working on the layout. If we actually do all the traveling we are planning next year I will be doing a lot less modeling.  At least in the second half of the year. Oh well, it helps the boss to make the plans, we will see how much of it gets implemented. I will not be doing anything that requires at risk payments. I hope everyone has a great day.
