  1. I remember seeing V C-10s in this scheme flying out of SFO when i was a kid....Must have built the old Airfix kit four or five times over the years.
  2. Thanks to all of you ....I wish I knew what to tell you, but it is impossible to say what we'll end up doing or when. My insurance company has paid out 75 % of our policy and is not in any hurry to pay out the rest, it will be a test of wills I guess. I understand they are a business, and they must profit to survive, but it is hard to swallow how many millions of dollars they spend to tell us they are "on our side" on the television and then try to screw us out of what we've been paying for over all these years. The cost to rebuild my workshop and equip it as it was
  3. This is one of the most inspiring builds I've seen in a great while....Beautiful workmanship and a great subject.Makes me want to build a Shorts Calcutta or Blackburn Perth in 1/32, the mind boggles! Paul
  4. I just wanted to post a year-end note to all of you LSP'ers who have supported our efforts through the years, and also saved our bacon this last month. We finally got some movement and payment from our insurance company this last week, so we can begin to think about going forward.Some pretty big hoops yet to jump through before we are done , but at least we can begin rebuilding our life with the smaller steps. All of you who so kindly donated to the GoFundMe drive, I can't really describe what a great feeling it is to find out how much your friends and customers care about yo
  5. You guys have been amazing! Susy and I cannot begin to adequately express our thanks to all of you for your help in this topsy turvy world we now live in. Our insurance company has finally begun to respond to the situation so by mid week we should be OK and can get some idea of how all this will work out.I will keep you posted! Paul
  6. Hi folks, Paul here in beautiful but chilly Centennial, Colorado. I know, I know, I am a weather wuss. I mentioned how cold it was to the dentist i had to see the other day and he just looked at me, giggled and walked out. Yikes! Anyway, I wanted to thank all of you once again for the amazing generosity you've shown us, I wish I could say the same about my insurance company, but sadly they are playing games and throwing up roadblocks so we are very fortunate to have friends and family like you people or we'd be in real trouble now.We're almost a month into this me
  7. Hi Guys.... I too have been amazed at how the trees seem to have survived while structures were destroyed. For many years I lived in fear of my neighbors' giant oak tree catching fire and falling on the barn, which would in turn torch the workshop, leading to the house. That oak tree still stands, as does my neighbors home, and yet my place got erased.Fire behaves in strange ways. We kept our place mowed within an inch of the ground all year 'round, and had removed trees and shrubs to keep defensible space, but to no avail.Places covered in brush and fallen pine needles did n
  8. You guys are awesome....So far quite a few of the model car guys have volunteered kits for re-casting also, but it will be a while before i can do any of that.The model has to be cut up strategically and enlarged a wee bit so it returns to scale via shrinkage but it can be done. A few of my guitar clients have also offered me the loan of their instruments so I can ,make new drawings, and the very first one I ever built is right here at my son's house, I gave it to him a while back as a birthday gift. Once again, I just have a to express my thanks for this amazing bunch
  9. Much like the old guy in the Monty Python movie, "I'm not dead yet," and it's all thanks to the generosity of you folks, Susy and I {as well as the doggies} are simply overwhelmed , there are no words for how grateful we are for your help.We really did get out with just what we were wearing and an old hard drive...As much as you think you're prepared, you're not. Anyway, we don't yet know when we can rebuild and get back in harness, but rest assured I will keep you posted.For now, just know how much we appreciate this, and I even told my Mom. You folks are the Best!
  10. Hi guys....Just checking in to confirm that while we may be down, we're not out...at least not yet! More soon Paul
  11. Working on another order of them now...Stay tuned! Paul
  12. I'm calling this one done! Here's some pics of the finished model.I did leave the aft cabin removable so I can occasionally look at all the madness in the back, but I just love the look of that double bubble cabin on the model.used EZ-Line for the antennas so it wont break when opening it up at shows, as if I can ever get out of here. Definitely a model with a unique character! Never could find anybody left who could tell me the significance of the Pelican cartoon on the cowl, but I love nose art so there you go! You can see one of

  14. You are most welcome! Thanks for getting behind the project and supporting my fetish for slightly off the beaten path aircraft.... Happy to make you guys happy....It's not a bad gig and the commute is great. Shipped out another bunch yesterday afternoon, but Monday is a holiday so no mail until Tuesday I guess. It's been surprising how many of these have gone to builders in the UK, Europe and All over the place....I am amazed. I am trying to get some decent pictures of my built up for the Ready for Inspection but having a heck of a time making insulators for the radio aerials.
  15. Yup....That's what I get for cell phone pics under crappy shop lights.You'd think by now I would have one of those nifty photo booths, but it's still on my to do list.
