Well folks here we are. . .the leaves are starting to fall. The thick cloak of winter will fall across our windowpanes in the coming months. If you do any serious modeling you probably have a few kits picked out for those nights when everyone else is letting sugar plums dance in their head. Pick up some new DVDs for the holidays, stock up on cheese, crackers, fruit, summer sausage, your favorite beverages get a new seat cushion for the chair at your hobby desk. New slippers for your feet and maybe even some holiday music. Sit back for a minute and ponder and let us know what will be on your hobby bench in the coming months. I'll start of with the hopes for the future and be greatful to GOD that I am healing up so well from my 4 operations this last 12 months.. By the way One more day at the hobby bench is a very good thing and to finally be out of pain is truely a blessing. Here is to the future.

This is looking like a fantastic ambition for cold winter months. Where I live we hardly see any snow, only rain and temperatures somewhere in the neighbourhood of 0 Celcius.

But wet, windy and cold is a good substitute for snow as motivator to stay inside, have a warm coffee and a fine model on the table.

Have fun, I'll do the same with my B-52

You really paint a great picture of modeling bliss, sir.

Where are the paint spills, and the pinged rigging lines, and the going cross-eyed from trying to thread tiny loops of lycra?


That Roden SE5 box looks really attractive. I hope the kit inside measures up.

Good luck, and enjoy your modeling season!
