Young at Heart. Other parts slightly older.

Updated 7/30/2016

My last update. As much as I love model building – and modifying – my health will not let me continue. Can’t do much without your hands, can you. So I hope you like the work I have done and I’ll be looking at yours when you post it.

Thanks for the support and for the critiques – they made me do better work.

2014 – FINISHED my flying sub from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.

Actually,  I finished it last June but never got around to updating this page. The model is beautiful with the full interior lit. Light kit from VooDooFX. Soldering required and it all just barely fits under the floor, but well worth the price for the terrific effect you get.  The nuclear engine has the changing colors of the  show, the cockpit controls light up, engines, hall light and every computer bank lights up, each dial! Well for the money for this kit!!!

Go to the FLYING SUB page on the right to see photos.

Before that my pride and joy is  The Enterprise! Click on 350 TOS ENTEPRISE page for more pics or click on this.

Also finished my Martian War Machine from WAR OF THE WORLDS.  Click page at bottom right.

Here’s the video, yes yes yes, I know the wrinkled black sheet is tacky but it’s all I had to work with.

This is the bridge lit up

    madest here. Followed the link to your boring blog so I could apologize for accidentally deleting a comment of yours. Yeah we were having a back and forth about Anonymous and I responded to some lame counterpoint you made about where the girls were standing when I realized my response comment could have been much funnier. I moved to delete my own comment but had some weird brain malfunction combined with a finger twitch and I accidentally deleted your comment instead which made my comment make no sense at all so I deleted that one too.
    Yeah I don’t have an excuse. Between you and me and the 6 visitors that have come to this remote corner of the internet I’ll tell you; I’ve been tempted to delete peoples comments based solely on principal (because I have that ability and some IABers are dicks) but I have always fought through that urge. You’re not a dick and I wasn’t angry or spiteful. It was some weird electrical discharge at the wrong synapse that made me do something I hadn’t planned to do. So please accept this apology on this depressing blog you never update and let me know if you need some help. I probably have $100 I could send you.
    Again sorry,

    BTW: Happy Birthday Old Man!
