  1. He has an active Facebook page I would message him there.
  2. I second the use of watercolor pencils and or a set of colored Sharpie pens to color dials etc.
  3. Welcome back Dave. Post your work here and have fun.
  4. Here is a link to my old website on the pinhole macro photography techniques I improved. It was submitted via article to Fine Scale Modeler journal a long time ago. Table of Contents I will migrate site sometime I been saying this for a decade now. See sample images below.
  5. Welcome! Do not be afraid to post.
  6. Look on eBay for Coastal kits, main site is down to Covid.  Still can be ordered on eBay for same price scales are from 1/35 to 1/2000 I believe.  Many designs and concepts.

    Got my diorama base from Coastal Kits in GB. Looks great.
  9. I have built in bookcase/shelves in my study which I call the war room. Hard to keep a certain feline from patrolling on them.
  10. I believe that a switch to online subscriptions or free with ads may be the savior especially with the pandemic and people staying at home. A virtual magazine can be wonderful, people can upload their work. Good way to save wood pulp and the environment too. One of the reasons we are in this pandemic mess is the destruction of the buffer zone between man and animal.
  11. Nick here is the pdf from the CDC website now public domain.

  12. I live in a city of 120,000 pop east of Houston,Texas. We are under a stay in place order. No gatherings or non essential business. If the City of San Marcos or the Gov. of Texas issues an order it will shut down the convention period. Houston is now pretty much shuttered through May. The hosting club has zero say on this. I know this stinks but this is a new reality folks. My son supervises a valet service at a resort in San Antonio, the resort is closed. It might not reopen if this epidemic continues through the summer. We have not peaked yet and we as a country are science ignorant. I am a retired Research Chemist/ Center Director with a specialty in nano characterization (XRD and Electron Microscopy) and I am dumbfounded on what I hear and read on the news and social media. The majority including the WH have no clue on how complex this pandemic is. I do not mean to sound negative, but a lot of folks are not going to their jobs back when the pandemic slows, it will be a rude awaking to all. I will be there if the conditions improve and look forward to meeting everyone. Isolate and take care , most cases 80% recover with no ICU etc. Stay positive. I will be happy to discus some of the science through PM if anyone wants, no political rants are helpful, just the science please.
  13. The Hakko has a huge line of replacement tips with specialized shapes and sizes and it heats instantly. Here is the owners manualSoldering instructions.pdf Manual has part level troubleshooting and replacement part list for everything built into the station. Not engineered to be a throwaway tool.
  14. https://www.amazon.com/Hakko-FX888D29BY-ESD-Safe-Digital-Soldering/dp/B00OSM27T8/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=hakko&qid=1585680150&sr=8-5 We use this one for our business, be careful if price is too low (ebay) it is a counterfeit station. Yes these are so high quality they are counterfeited alot in the marketplace. We got ours locally through an industrial electronics store.
