OK, Chappy,
What did you find that you thought you had lost?
Did you vacuum? I always put an old pair of my wifes pantyhose over the end of the vacuum hose. Amazing what you can find. Even "tweezer launch" parts...LOL

Wow! Then I guess I REALLY need to confess. I'm not cleaning either of those things. What I am doing is completely REMODELING my Study/Model room!!!
All this thanks to Gunnie...
Yes. He has indeed not only succeeded in shameing me, but also supercharging me into a much better, more focused, and more dedicated modeler. I will not hesistate to say that he has had a significant affect on my usual, rather 'plodding' style of modeling. I will forever be grateful to him for the fire he has lit. But on the other hand I am as equally angry with him for loading even more on my plate of 'things to get done'!

Tread.

I even cleaned up all the beer bottles and beer caps
My next project involves alot of PE and I figured I would try to keep the cussing down to a minimum by not having to look for all of the tweezer launch parts in between cigarette ashes, beer caps, melted sprue, sandpaper, bottles of paint, plastic shavings, play-doh chunks (from the kid) and an ungodly amount of used toothpicks....
And besides, I like to start fresh after completing a model....yes I did finish one but Jim put it in the "On the workbench" album(No big deal). Its an Abrams by Tamiya

I too am guilty of cleaning the bench!
You know what that means...new project. Hmmm, which to start next?
Now if I could just get ahold of a camera.

I usually keep a pretty tidy work area. I've got 3 layers of cardboard and a newspaper section between the top of my workspace and the table. I'd get yelled at if I should spill something on the table. Normally I'm a neat freak. Or you can call me a control freak, or, like my mom says, a perfectionist. Hmmm, I was never called that before I started building models...

I also cleaned my modeling space, but you won't believe what I found!!! The 24th bomb that goes on the F-16 !!!!! Yes, I finally found the missing bomb. I knew the cat didn't eat it. Now I can paint it and add it to the plane.

Ahh - then I indeed have accomplished my mission :-)

Your progress must be rewarded - only light modeling tonight - then you must break and watch the Sharks-Avalanche Game4. Game3 was the BEST hockey game I've ever seen - eventhough the damn ESPN-casters are really homers for the Av's. It was up & down, back & forth, thrills, chills, spills, fights, cheats, fast pucks movements, wild skating, and some of the softest shooting I've ever seen. If every hockey game was like that one...

Who needs hockey? I had a tornado about a mile away about an hour ago and thought the whole house might get cleaned ... from the face of the earth! Cable's still out, power's on, phone and DSL's on ... forgive me for checking the National Weather Service before coming to Armorama.

I did a thorough cleaning of the bench area a couple weeks ago and found a few goodies I'd stashed away from the Household Chief of Staff (She Who Must Be Obeyed, for you non-military types), plus a couple missing parts. Sometimes cleaning is good.

BTW, for those who must know, I had the keys, the money, the cards, the smokes, a six-pack and a flashlight in hand -- and was trying to figure out how to evacuate four cats and 110-pound dog to the shelter -- then the thought went through my mind to try to save a few models ... Like a wise man once said, "There's a fine line between a hobby and a mental illness."

Spring is never boring in the Land of Ahs ...

I'm on the other side of town from you Hollowpoint (North Oak & I-152), it was a little scary wasn't it? I've lived in Missouri for most of my 32 years, and I think I've only heard the sirens go off two or three times. We had a tornado touch down about 10 miles north in Smithville last night.

I only had a four-year-old and two-cats to move to the basement - and the models live under the basement steps, they were probably better protected than we were!

Glad to hear you made it through okay!!

Well, it was a quite interesting (I used to work in a prison -- I know what being REALLY scared is like). It looks like there were at least two twisters within a mile or so of me last night. When I went into work at the fort this morning, I was surprised at the damage there. Trees down everywhere. A few plots will be opening in the national cemetery, as many large trees will have to be removed. Some of the folks I know on post lost stuff that blew away, had vehicles damaged by trees and other blown junk, even rescued a few folks out cycling, running or otherwise recreating in the outdoors.Tough night, but no one was hurt or killed.

Let's see: Cleaning the Model table.Hmmmmmmm. Well, Since I live in a two bed room Apt and I use the second bedroom as my hobby room. I kind of have to clean the table every time I start a new project. Sometimes even whilest in the middle of one already under way. I do not have a whole lot of space to work in as is. So I keep very careful track of every little part of each project OR AT LEAST I try to anyway. But I still manage to loose some parts occassionally. When I finish the Spitfire that I am currently working on, (which I plan on completing by the end of this week) I intend to re-clean and vacum the area. Ant then take a few days break before starting on a Fw-190/F-8 project. YES I do build Armor. But I am currently involved with a number of A/C projects. I have the Merk-III kit that I mentioned yesterday and a couple WW-2 Tamiya German Armor kits also waiting in the wings. I plan on starting in on these kit's by early Fall Sept ot Oct.!!
