  1. I have been told by my heamatology Dr to stay indoors for up to 6 months and perhaps beyond. I have checked my tool boxes for supplies and I have blades for two years, loads of glue, multiple bottles of thinners, putty etc. Strangely I was running low on Mr. Tool cleaner. It now arrives next week. I have begun my own virus modelling by setting aside my current WWII aeroplane until I practice loads of aerial/rigging. I am currently working on my Cold war jet build meteor. I put that away for a couple of weeks to build a 1/48 jet and then a Tamiya 1/35 tank. Second day into the jet... I am so lucky to have a stash. Tomorrow I will walk the 200 meters to my hospital to get tested. Knowing hospital life the way I do means I will arrive at 0800 Sunday morning. The exercise should take 10 minutes. When ordering M.T.C. from BNA,. I also ordered templates for 1/35 armour. Having bought some nice Tamiya armour the stencils are said to be designed for Tamiya subjects. Currently trying to decide what kit to build. It's come down to either Js-2, Js-152 or Bt 42. Maybe a King Tiger... First world problems.
  2. How do we order? I have a 1/48 model of this aircraft. Must dig it out. Building a 32 would be great.

  4. Indeed. You know he pooped his pants in a McDonalds?
  5. Things are moving fast at my end. I am away from my studio for a month and will shop for groceries very early in the morning. I am now wearing latex gloves all the time. Apparently this thing sticks to metals and clothing for longer than normal durations. I will use Zoom for teaching. I am planning on doing lots of modelling. I have set aside my Frank until my fingers gain some feeling and will focus on jets, armour and cars. Although I can build Sakai's Zero due to him sawing off his antenna mast. I have both Tamiya Zeros. I need a larger cabinet for 1/32 jets so will build them in 1/48 & 1/72. I have some great 1/48 jets to build. Right now I am doing a speed build of the Hasegawa Kawasaki T-4. It seems our government is doing things responsibly. I must be extremely careful due to my totally shot immune system. My doctor expressed the point that my danger level is in the extreme. "No soup for you!" Good luck everybody.
  6. Me too! My mother went bonkers and tried to strangle me when I was 12! And her sister was mad as well.
  7. I just lost another student, a wild little 6 year old who is destined for the stage. The worst part for me, aside the loss of funds, is I miss them when they stop coming in. Over the years I have developed huge respect for children. I think they know this. The results are amazing and here in Sydney I have become very well known for my success teaching music to children. Nobody understands how I do it. I think it is simply respect. For some reason kids love me. Kids and dogs. They always relate to me. I reckon it's because I never grew up. Never had my own. Like school, I was never made to read a book. As a consequence I love books, Tolstoy, Seneca, Thucydides... Leaving school at 8 years old was the best thing that ever happened to me.
  8. My effort is to build a 1/48 jet ASAP to clear out cobwebs. I will then get back to my Cold war jets build. I began the Hasegawa Kawasaki T-4 this morning from 10 am until 2 pm when I had to go out. I already completed the cockpit, posed the pilots and painted the undercarriage. It's fun. I vacuumed yesterday. Japanese aircraft once again....
  9. Sorry to hear this, Mark. I too have PTSD. It complicates everything. I wish you luck in moving forward. You owe no apology.
  10. Thanks Dennis. I think I forgot the fin lights. I will fix it tomorrow.
  11. It looks like you are preparing to advance into Poland!
  12. I tried modelling with diabetes but things just fell off. Gallows humor. Sorry.
  13. Indeed. A friend saw a 9 pack of toilet paper on Gumtree at $500.00! Just imagine what the modellers will pay for quick setting thin glue and model kits! My cunning plan is finally coming to fruition.....
  14. I took this vow at age 7. Wise move Brad. I have never regretted my choice.
