  1. I did research the area and consulted with co-workers there or who have lived there. It's a beautiful part of the country and the vast majority of the people from all walks of life I've met here have been wonderful. If I'd been able to secure some reasonably safe lodging, and we hadn't seen so many leave employment with us back in L.A., I'd be staying, but that is not to be. Except for the break-ins and the frustration of trying to find a place, my experience there has been very similar to the one I had in Charlotte. Yesterday I went to Zonolite Park in North Druid Hills and had a great time. I saw my dog smile for the first time since I got here. Speaking of dog, he's a Manchester Terrier and is great on the road. He and I have travelled a good chunk of the U.S. But I'm worried about him. He's not his usual self and will be getting a check-up with his vet when we get back.
  2. Pulled the trigger this morning. Not happy about it at all, but family comes first.
  3. You don't need to buy kits with missing parts. That's not the sort of kit you're looking for. Now move along.
  4. Squadron did but it's long OOP. Have you posted a want ad here?
  5. Getting more worried about my dog. Often his breath smells of urine which can mean kidney trouble.
  6. Okay then! Since I relocated out here, four people at the main office in SoCal have quit, I haven't been able to qualify for a place except for when the listing states "we accept Section 8 and vouchers", and my truck has been broken into twice here. And my dog is still upset. Looks very likely I'll be turning around and heading back to help fill the shortage. A former neighbor has kindly offered me a room as well. Signed, Angry & frustrated in Atlanta
  7. Arrived this morning and headed straight to my new office. Called a property management company about a small house for rent nearby. Never got a call back. Nice. I'll be living out of a hotel for a short time. Unfortunately I couldn't come down early for a few days to set something up. Hopefully I'll find something soon. And my dog is back to being upset about the situation which is breaking my heart. He'll get over it though.
  8. I loved reading his threads and gaining insight into his persistence and enthusiasm. Too many people would've throttled back and merely existed in his situation.
  9. I finished packing and left before dawn from Southern California. Stopped for the night in Grants, New Mexico. Long day! I'm worried about my dog though. When we left the first rest area in Arizona, and kept heading east, he finally realized something was up, and he cried for more than an hour. He's been better since but definitely not happy about it! I'm hoping the trip continues to go smoothly. And I can't wait to get settled once I'm there. I may actually have some spare time to get things done!
  10. When I was a kid it was Chuck's Hobby Hangar in Woodland Hills, Ca, and Karl's Toys in West Hills. In the UK there was a hobby shop near my uncle's home in Sandhurst, and a big shop in London where I found an Airfix 24th Spitfire for the equivalent of $5 US thanks to the exchange rate. In Glasgow I don't recall an LHS but just about every small convenience type shop had a selection of kits. Fun times!
  11. Found the insert! Awesome! Recently I found a photo online of PD328 with the bomb bay open. Most visible was a spare mainwheel but I wonder what else was there? Extra fuel tanks I'm sure. Aries must've flown like a fighter without the tactical loadout no matter what.
  12. I'll double check! Thanks!
  13. I wonder if I'd be able to get the Dambuster edition's dorsal turret plug from HK?
  14. I'm looking forward to all the sights. The aquarium being one of them. Mainly I'm looking forward to renting or buying a house that won't be much more than the H.O.A. fees I'm paying right now per month.
  15. Got hangar space for my Lancaster & He-111H down there in Atlanta. Seriously though, how big would a hangar be for a Lanc in 32nd scale?
