Thanks for dropping by, Maru.  No update.  This winter I've been doing interior Honey-do projects and cleaning up the basement and organizing my modeling area to relieve some of the congestion.

 

For the two Honey-do projects I refinished a bathroom, filled, sanded the walls, painted, and installed new lighting, door hardware, and accessories.  The other honey-do project I designed a Mondrian influenced art project made with 1/8" Masonite as a substrate and 1" square red, yellow, blue, white, and black mosaic tiles.  It is 17'-0" long by 10" deep (5+ meters x 25+cm).  I'm still working on it.

 

The basement flooded earlier this winter and I spent a lot of time messing with that on a more than daily basis.  There were old paint cans and rugs that needed discarding, new shelving put in, and organized.  My modeling area needed loads of new shelving to move tools and supplies off of my work desk, which was becoming smaller and smaller with accumulated scrap and tools for and from each project.

 

I boxed a good 30+ models that I'll be selling on ebay and stacked them in the 'to sell' shelf.

 

Tomorrow I'm going to our beach house until Thursday morning to do spring cleaning.  Hopefully the weather will be nice when I get back because I need to make a frame for the basement sink.

 

The current sink sits on a frame of wood and particle board which has been ruined because of flooding.  I've got to disconnect the plumbing, rip out the framing, then clean up the mess of dissolved particle board.  I've got a stock of angles 36 inches long with 2 inch returns that are perforated every 2 inches or so.  I used them for outdoor landscape projects, so even tho they are a bit rusted they are still sturdy enough to hold up the sink.  I've got to prepare the angles by wire wheeling the rust off, cutting some, spraying them with paint, and the base with liquid rubber so when the basement leaks again the angles will be protected with this rubberized compound, then bolt them together.

 

Lots of stuff still to do before I get back to this, not to mention the stuff I didn't mention!

 

Thanks again, Maru.

Sincerely,

Mark

Mark,

 

I know where you are coming from I HAVE Honey to do list of MY own...

 

Sounds like you have done quite a lot of hard, exhausting and remodelling and renovating work; which should pleased you.  Good luck with the other stuff you have pointed out that you still have to do. :frantic:

 

I hope the basement looks better now that you have managed to work on it. and Mark no matter many more shelves you put it seems there IS NEVER enough space to put things away.

 

I can imagine that it is probably so much better  now that you have been dextrous in doing all the work..

 

GOOD for you Mark for completing that tasks. :party0023:

 

just think of it this way: you have done it now and wont need doing  it for a while, you     wont have to     keep leaving your modelling bench to build  the bathroom etc, and now you can relax after that and then when you get time to sit on the work bench you can focus on that et al..

 

Modeling can take a back seat till the honey do list is done and just think you will plenty of time in Summer to sit and relax and drink Pina Colads...  

 

Mark take your time ..if you don't finish it now then you can always move it to WIP right.. :innocent: :hmmm:

 

Thanks for the updated and Apologies for the prodding.

Sir,

When you do get back to this wonderful build, send me a PM.  I worked on Cobras in the Army and in the Nebraska National Guard for almost 20 years (then they phased them out in the late 90's)  I have all kind of knowledge on the AH-1F.

 

I would love to share my real world knowledge with you!!!

 

Dan
