    Building a model from a single piece of paper

    Origami of course. There was an article on one of the news subscriptions I am on and it was fascinating to watch. Hope you like it. And the process....... Just listening to the music is worth the time, but I never knew what was involved with doing something like this. Enjoy.

    Signing off for a week or two

    Not completely, but the desktop is getting shut down and taken to another room so they can do my bedroom floor (hopefully this week). While I have access with my tablet, it is marginal these days at best. So off to get the computer and corner hutch torn down and moved out.

    USPS Lied on the tracking.

    OK folks, here is a lesson for everyone about our wonderful inept moronic US Postal Service. One of the folks on here contacted me about a figure that is now out of production. All that is good and it was shipped priority mail to where I work. The business hours as posted are 9:30 to 5:30...

    Heading off to Wonderfest in Louisville KY this weekend.

    It's a 5 hour drive, but well worth it if you are in to figures and sci-fi. As I am a bit tight on vacation this year I passed on getting a room for the night and also decided to save the $130 for a room and use it on something I will be wanting. I figure Badger airbrushes will be there...

    Franz von Werra's Bf109 E4

    As I am on a WWII German theme and have a number of these kits and several conversions to go with them, it is time to build one up out of the box, or close to it. Otherwise this is going to be a plain plane just to look over the kit and how it builds. (I have 10 more with 3 conversions) It...
