Hi Terri - I am so sad to hear of your loss - I am a dog lover and have gone through the difficult time you are experiencing my self - never easy .
I have often said there are only two things wrong with dogs

1). You get too attached to them

2). They don't live long enough

There are times when I prefer their company to that of humans .

I hope you heal quickly - Richard



Richard,
Agreed on both accounts.

Our dog Rags, yep that was his name as I got him as a puppy from the pound. His formal name was Sir Bag of Rags. Anyway,my son had one upstairs bedroom, I had the other as my model/computer room. When my son moved down stairs to the finished basement, Rags decided he wanted his room. So that's where he slept and hung out when he wanted his privacy. And yes, he had a bed too.

Very sorry to hear that. We just lost our service dog, Keisha, a few months ago. I sill look for her to play ball. You loss and grief are real. We looked and waited and found a new friend when it felt right. You need a place to reinvest the love.

Terri,
So sorry to hear that. I've been there twice, and it's never an easy thing to do. Hopefully sooner then later you'll comes to terms with the lose. Maybe even get another Soulmate.

Terri,
This is a great looking kit to get back into the game with. I purchased it myself a while back when it was first released— got a steal on it for $40 at my LHS! Hasegawa has really released a beauty with this one and it’s subsequent release, and I think you’ll enjoy it a lot. I had a fellow modeler “beg” me to let it go to him for a couple of trades, and since I already had the Tamiya A6M2 Zero, I relented, but now wish I’d kept this kit. I did get an Oscar and a partially built Tamiya F4U in trade though. But still, one can never have too many Zeros! Enjoy!
VR, Russ

I'll follow along as well. All the smoke in the air left the sun a a bright red circle at sunset and had me thinking of zeros. This will be a good one to follow.

Terri,
It's about time you've come on back to the bench. I for one have really missed you.

So now you're building a super scale Japanese A6M5c Zero. Sure looks like Richard is really happy about it. I'm still waiting for his return to the bench as well.

As usual, I'm pulling up my old man's rocking chair, and following right along. As a shameful plug, my latest build is the 1/24 scale Fujimi Martini Porsche 917K in the AutoModeler site. Drop by and check out my 1st car build.

It's been in the 90's day after day after day here, with some really nasty T storms thrown in just to make it real interesting. Not looking forward to the electric bill, that's for sure

Terri,

Good to see you back!

Looking forward to your Zero. Thinking of making it pretty or beaten up?

That box art - the Zero was a beautiful aircraft. IIRC, Joe Foss, over Guadalcanal, hesitate pulling the trigger for a moment just to admire the airframe.

Great to see a return to the work bench Jessica, my absence is still ongoing but I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things soon. I look forward to seeing how the new tool Hasegawa goes together and the level of detail provided int he kit, as well as the extra's you will add. Who know's perhaps inspiration will strike??

Having not built anything since May and with lost mojo on the hurrie which ended up back in its box resting on the shelf .

I need to feed the inner drive calling me back to the bench . Even though summer is here it has been a hot one and the heat is beginning to be to much . Since finding myself spending time in doors again time to start a new project .

So , Hasegawa new tooled Zero will be under the knife . Few details will be added ...

Eduards etch set for the cockpit

Eduards landing flaps

Eduards Brassin wheel set

RB Productions seat belts

Master Barrels Armament & Pilot tube set



Will have some progress post soon ...
