Hello I must be going?

I have come up for air after another period of hiding.

About a year and a half ago I decided to work my hand back into modeling with a couple tank models by GPM... which I have decided is Polish for "looks pretty but won't fit and we won't tell you how to assemble it."

I really haven't worked on anything new since my attempt at Magenta, which failed and was chastised. Sometimes folks don't realize how much non support hurts when a person is putting their heart into something.

Anyway. I MAY try to deal with the folks that want kits. Within the U.S. it is not much issue since I printed some extra copies. Outside the U.S. you can thank idiot self-interested "patriots" (spit) in all parts of the world for making it difficult to send even a pile of paper at a reasonable cost. Sorry.

So I worked on the GPM Pzkpfw III and found that the turret shell would not fit to the base. I was stumped. Then my right middle finger developed an enormous cyst from fluid leaking from the finger joint. A minor surgery fixed that about nine months ago and I am finally thinking that I might risk cutting again.

Hello to anybody that might remember me, and the folks that hounded me off the site I hope have suffered from brain cancer. Nothing personal at all.

Welcome back Carl,

You have been missed, and have been asked about.
Happy to hear you are on the mend.

What can one say about your reappearance other than to say welcome back!

I still owe you a ship's railing solution - haven't forgotten about it though I have discovered that magic works in strange and wondrous ways when attempting the impossible. Just thought I'd let you know....,

Then there's the deal about using a low cost 3D printer, which I think is a bit much for just railings alone, but started thinking about all those other tiny, fiddly detail bits just waiting to be produced. Only problem is the need for paint at detail scale....,

How is it that these perfectly simple near mindless pursuits end up growing into an exponential multi-dimensional explosion monster after just an innocent and preliminary period of messing around with it?

In the interim I did learn how to print on aluminum using a home brew method to simulate the way it's done professionally - only issue is that it goes way beyond the "don't do this at home" type of thing.

Here's to seeing you revive your clever capabilities at Rhino 3D to produce more of those magnificent sea going miniatures...,

Hello Carl!
Greg is doing a fine job here with your HMS Victoria.
Sounds like you are headed for the “Armory” with your tank work.
I’ll keep an eye open for it.
