Gerardo ........... where in Ontario are you ?


Guy's I've notice a lot of people have a LOT of pieces being built at the same time. How do you guys do that ?!?!? I usually focus on one piece at a time........ if I was doing more then one or two at once, I'd need a BIGGER work space. I leave all my stuff out and I spread out pretty large when building a project.

Trumpy LAV III, waiting to get the Real Models update set.

Real Models Coyote conversion, man it has alot of photo etch LOL.

HB Leopard 2A6m CDN. I'm thinking of making my own Barracuda cam from the Echelons netting and foil.

I hope to get back to the workbench soon, that is after the hardwood floors get installed, the new bathroom gets built, the living room gets painted...


cheers

Hey Jerry.

About 20+ years ago I use to be a member with IPMS Toronto. I should really renew again or at least try to make it out to a meeting or two. It's been a long time. I'm in Woodbridge not too far from Canada's Wonderland. I don't know anyone out my way into this stuff. And my wife always looks at me strange when I sit down to work. But I find it relaxing and distracting ....... just what the doctor ordered !!!

Ditto... but I just got back from a week on a cruise and realized how much I missed my time out in model land... lol.

get in touch, we should compare notes although you are somewhat ahead of me...

take care and see you

I am currently working on a CyberHobby 1/48 Bf110-D, as well as getting ready to put the finishing touches on my Bronco 1/35 Humber. I have a few sitting on deck, just can't decide what to start next.

Ive been really lazy lately and my workbench is a mess. Next week I have some time off and I think I will clean up the bench and finish up a few things. I haven't picked up a thing since I last posted. Brutal

I've got a Trumpeter LAV-III on the go, with the RM update, and the LORIT set. TOO MUCH ETCH!

Also working on the Academy M1151 with the Legend Rhino, AM wheels, and a whole mess of figures.

Booo-yaaah. Bought some new stuff. Worked on the diorama base for the German truck. Feels nice to be working on things again. But boy do the skillz get rusty if you're not doing this stuff all the time.

Currently working my way through a LAV 3 with a ton of etch from ET models, have to say the etch is quite easy to work though very intricate at times, i also have an M114 started as well.

Now working on an Italeri Elephant with a bunch of update sets. There's going to be a lot of gutting and cutting on this one. Not even close to the base Dragon kit. This Italeri kit needs a lot of TLC. Pictures to follow.
