Sorry I am late, WELCOME KIRSTEN! I want to thank you for being understanding and supportive enough to share your time with your husband with us. I know it takes a lot of time to keep this site in tip top shape. You should be vary proud of the great job he has done with the site. I am sure you would agree that at least he is making great use of the time you have to give up with him so he can keep things running.

I have no pride, Jim, make me an avatar of my butt-ugly bald head--use that dumb picture of me with my Tiger.

Well,
Anything close to your avater, or maybe even some modern GI Jane pics would work. The ones that I had to choose from just didn't fit me. They all have that house wife look. Yes, I do stay at home with the kids, but I also have alot of time to build stuff.

I guess that's an advantage being married to the Creator. You can make him create a new avater for you. :-) Jim you need to create some more good looking ones for the rest of us ladies here. You won't have to make too many



Penny,
I just told Jim he needed to find some new avitars for the ladies. Any specifications?

Well...I am very impressed by the warm welcome! Thank you all...and don't worry, Jim doesn't give me enough computer time to be on here too much so you guys are safe

To answer some of your questions ( not necessarily in the order they were asked)

Yes, I am blonde but I wanted a USO looking avitar and this was the closest Jim could find...I'll make him keep looking

Kirsten is a very Scandanavian name but my family is from Ireland, Germany-France(Alsace-Lorraine) and Switzerland. My mom just really liked the name as do I

I have been encouraging Jim to get back into modeling lately. We got some "mad money" and he said he is going to spend it on modeling supplies....whatever makes him happy as long as he takes out the trash on Tuesday night!

I would love to join chat sometime. We have 4 computers in this house so it should be workable

As for a forum for wives and girlfriends, I think I would have more fun just occasionally chatting with you guys if that's OK.

If forgot anyone's questions, I am sorry. It's 8:30 and I just sat down for the first time a few minutes ago so my brain is rather fried!

Take care,

Kirsten...I could have sworn this morning you were a blonde...



Kenc', you're right. She was. A woman's perogitive I guess (or a certain someones computer tinkering). I do love the '40's hairdo though! Always loved that era..........

Tread. :-)

Kirsten, you look maaaavelous!

I wouldn't be it that room, Ken. I'm an odd ball, I'd feel out of place and wouldn't be happy. At least When I'm building , I'm in my own little world.

Hiya Kirsten,
Nice to hear that you (the better half ) are willing to sacrifice your quality time and show an interest in Lord Jims' affairs and interests! Healthy relationships lead to a healthy web-site.
Keep it up the pair of you!
And again Welcome!

Hey ' Guy with Stuff ' , (just had to call you that ). Since your tossing around a few names here, I was wondering about YOUR name....Sabot?

Hmmm, consulting Webster's Encyclopedic Dictionary,
sabot; n (mil.) lightweight carrier in which a subcaliber projectile is centered to permit firing the projectile in a larger caliber weapon, the carrier filling the bore of the weapon from which the projectile is fired.

Doesn't that last little bit sound a little like 'cannon fodder' ?

lol Rob, just kidding...

Tread.

When I was at my Armor Officer Basic Course, the Mississippi National Guard guys commented that I was as short as a sabot round (the 105mm sabot rounds were about 2 foot tall). Everyone in the class caught up on the use of the nickname, and since several officers went to Germany with me, the name followed, then upon the return to Knox, etc. The armor community is a small branch, heck DJ probably went to school with some of my battalion and brigade commanders.

By the way, it is pronounced "SAY-BO".

Hello Kristen,
Welcome to the only other lady that I know of on the site. Maybe you'll come into the Mess Hall with Jim sometime and we can swap "better half" stories. :-) With me and my hubby, I do the models and he rags me about it. Kinda backwards, huh.

So, I HAVE to ask...
If Maki has a wife - what would HER Avatar look like?
Gunnie



LOL... I guess I'll have to ask Jim to make a special Avatar for her when I get chained.. Something with beautifull orange eyes and long purple hair perhaps... :-)

Welcome Kirsten and enjoy the site of ultimate modeling madness...

Kirsten and I co-built one working model of a 1:1 scale baby? Does that count?


Those are the best kind to WORK on....have the most fun building them

Hello, Mrs. Jim's Wife. I am the resident guy who owns the stuff the Army still uses and everyone wants pictures of the stuff. You can call me "Guy with stuff" or Rob.

Kirsten,
It is nice to meet you. I'm glad Jim has someone you understands the modelling madness. I had the pleasure of meeting Jim at the last show in Richmond and I must say that his work (with your help) on this site is making it a very friendly place to visit.. Now all he has to do is build a plastic model.

Kirsten,

I would like to congratulate you on having a very Skandinavian name!! At to judge the looks from your avitar you have some Swedish blood in you too!! A mix like that can't be all that bad...

I must pipe in with everyone else and say this is the premier site for armor modelling. Maybe not the biggest in the amount of pictures or reviews, but the "feel" beats anything out there...
