Retired

 A week ago on friday I retired.  Being 66 it was time.  Plus I had grown tried of the B.S at GM.  Specially for contract designers..  Little does anyone know GM has made contract designer to unpaid days off or as they put it furlough day.  The company made record profits this quarter, but due to budget short fall they made take time off.  Note this didn't effect the direct or union people.  Being a second class worker I decided to retire.

So far my retire hasn't turned out like I wanted it to be.  Wednesday our refrigerator burnt up. Yes I could smell something burning.  The compressor failed.  A refrigerator set me back 1200 dollars.  Hope to catch up on my Romans and other project.  Plus may started selling off items the have collected dust for years...

Something different 1/48 FW-190A8

 My first love was building aircraft.   This year I rejoined the IPMS after not being a member for almost 30 years.  All the different paint schemes of German, American, and British aircraft is what drew into Plastic model Aircraft.  Today I thought maybe some of the people that follow my blog might like to see what I have done.  Painting hundreds of miniatures takes time. Making a model airplane can be relaxing. Plus a change of pace.

No pictures of my Roman Project. Why because damn flu has been beating me up pretty big the past two weeks. So tried of having a runny nose and death cough. 

Here is my FW-190.   May start a blog just with aircraft.

Battle front releases the M38 Jeep

Mine are on order from battle front.  I have been awaiting for some one to make these jeeps.  Used in the 60's and 70's by the US Army.   And the IDF with the recoiless rifle make a real nice vehicle killers. 

Also I got an email from Suan of S & S models. The T54 bridge is close to going into reproduction Now I need to purchase a few more T54s.. Stay tuned for updates
