    Make the others jealous

    Everything should be easily worth what I paid. My only concern is the handle maker as the "clamps" are directly in line with a few of the steps. I'm not sure why they decided to do that. I have the UMM one as well which is a little better but not as well constructed. I may end up getting the Micro Mark one as it accommodates for that.

    The round items are aluminum rods which are used on the UMM roller tool. The long rectangular pieces are their sanding bars.

    You can buy a copy of that chart for something like $2 with an order. One did come with my book though. I really like their new line of paint. Very Tamiya quality paints but the proper shades. Tamiya has really missed out on this. My only complaint is that I wish you could order in the paint in large jars.

    Revell actually does fairly well at making automotive kits.

    Paul Fisher Fire Relief - GoFundMe

    There actually already is a class action suit against PG&E started for the Camp fire. I am not sure which attorney group is doing it though. The problem is that PG&E already is in the middle of another lawsuit from another fire which hasn't been settled yet. Also, PG&E is also threatening to file bankruptcy which means even if anyone wins a suit no one will get paid. To make it even worse, last year California passed legislation that allows any utility to pass on any debt to their customers in forms of fees or increased rates which in turn means if you sue the company you are essentially putting money from one of your pockets into another and grabbing a few bucks from your neighbor, too. It isn't looking too good going down that route. I have heard a few stories about Nationwide from people who were hit by the hurricane in Florida a couple of months back. It took some threatening and heated phone calls, but they eventually got what they needed. I hope Paul doesn't have to go to that extreme though. I have also heard talks that legislation is being introduced for the state to buy the lands/area and convert it into a buffer zone. Either way, it will be a long recovery for everyone.

    Paul Fisher Fire Relief - GoFundMe

    I was holding on to some hope that Paul would have something to go back to, but alas, CalFire has made it down that way. I gave some tears as I saw the news and pics. I have known him through the hobby for over 20 years. At one time or another, I have had almost all of his racing cars and a handful of his planes. Here is a suggestion. For the next group build or something similar can we have one in Paul's honor?

    Some Speculation about Revell

    It would be nice if Revell would take that Mirage and add their own parts to make a Nesher or Kfir.

    Yes, several people have posted it on many of the auto groups. Bad thing is people only skim a lot of the boards and don't pay that much attention. However, though, everyone is trying to get the word out.

    ALERT! Anyone heard from or about Paul Fisher?

    Someone on his facebook apparently made contact. They and the dogs are ok. They have evacuated. That is all that was said, but from everything I have seen, the town is gone.
  12. Looking wonderful! I am excited to see this one get so close.

    Way OT.....Low Back Pain

    Then he is either getting lied to or his employee is making those guidelines. The law in reference is LB931 and LB731. The only restrictions are those placed on juveniles and recipients of Medicaid. It does require extra CME's and documentation, but it does not prohibit him from prescribing you something. It's not that uncommon for a physician to say the state makes me do or not do something. My wife has even told some of her patients she can't prescribe certain meds due to the "new regulations." There is nothing that says she can't prescribe anything, but it keeps the patient from arguing with her and it keeps the drugs seekers away. Per Nebraska DHHS... This bill places restrictions on healthcare practitioners prescribing controlled substances listed on Schedule II of the Controlled Substances Act or any other opiate not listed in Schedule II. In order to lawfully prescribe such drug, the practitioner must first discuss certain information with the patient, or with the patient's parent or guardian if the patient is younger than 18 years old and is not emancipated. The healthcare practitioner is required to discuss the following topics: risks of addiction and overdose, reasons why the practitioner deems the prescription necessary, and alternative treatments that may be available. Such discussions are required prior to the first prescription and again prior to issuing a third prescription to the patient. This section also terminates on January 1, 2029. Either way though, I really hope that your condition improves. I had a bought of lower back pain. Was on lortabs for quite some time as well as having the steroid shots. None of that worked. Finally realized that a big portion of it was posture, abdominal wall muscles, and of all things my wallet. Seems my wallet was pushing my hip to one side arching my back in a bad way. Once I fixed those issues, it all went away. Those shots were one of the worst things I had ever done. It caused more pain from the swelling than the pain I was in.

    Oh boy, you got lied to. It isn't that the doctor can't prescribe opiates. It is that by regulations set forth by the DEA that if more than 50% of their patients are receiving a scheduled pain medication, they must receive training and conduct themselves as a pain management center. Nebraska only enforces that ruling as well as puts a bit more restrictions on Medicaid patients as well as reporting guidelines for everyone prescribed and receiving opiates. They may have been trying to steer you more toward the nerve medications that you are on as well as they work better for those types of conditions with fewer side effects.
