  1. The Tori Factory track link is slightly over size compared to the real thing. Dak
  2. This is a mid-production Hummel of the 4th Panzer division abandoned on the retreat in to Courland peninsula in the spring of 1945. The DML kit with for Stalingrad and one Alpine figures. There is an interior in the lower hull which has a splendid horror story behind it. But for that you will have to read the Journal article whenever it comes out. Dak
  3. For those interested in how it came out.... Dak
  4. Working on a diorama based around a forklift. The Aoshima kit with the MiniArt hand truck. The propane tank is also from the MiniArt set. The bumper stickers came from Gofer racing Decals. They are a little big, but I think they add to the model. Dak
  5. The Takom kit in 1/35th with four figures from Model Cellar and two from Sovereign (I think). Dak
  6. My friend Mark had Chinese for lunch and got this in the fortune cookie. Dak

    Korean Winter

    The 1/35th AFVCLUB Centurion Mk 3 in in the winter of 1950 Figures are from Miniart. Stowage is Squadron, cooking gear Miniart. Fire pit scratch work. Snow is spackling powder. Dak
  8. With the national called off, I got busy doing some figure painting. The busts are from Nuts Planet, and Youngs miniatures. The girls with the goggles is Honey Bee and I have no idea what company made her (she was a gift). I cheat and use Archer eyes and some other decals on parts of the figures. I did paint the leopard skins on the Hussars free hand. I do make my own bases. The armor I did with Alclad. The rest is oils over enamels. The Opalinski brothers are real people that are also characters in some books by Eric Flint. Dak
  9. Just a bunch of weenies! Just because of a pandemic and people dying all around is no reason to cancel! A zombie apocalypse would never stop us! Civil War would stop us ! Well all put on hazmat suits and make it work!!!! Take to the streets and burn a few cars! Who’s with me? Oh wait. My wife says no. Oh darn. Good luck and stay safe. Dak
  10. As long as dioramas get judged well. They are the only really important categories. Dak
  11. The Covid19 virus is particularly insidious because the symptoms come on slow and doesn’t effect everyone the same way. This has bred complacency in both political and non-political areas. Dak
  12. I have always said keep people informed. Even when you know nothing and have no information, tell people that. It really does calm things. Silence begets rumors. Rumors create fear. If the various parties are waiting for Texas or the local community to make decisions, then say so. They could also put a clear plan out in case it all does work out for us. Let everyone know what to expect as an attendee or vendor. Masks, tracking list, limited numbers in the model room, maybe taking temps, etc. Silence only breeds uncertainty. Uncertainty destroys confidence. Dak
  13. It’s all moot until we know what the State of Texas will be doing in a month. A secondary aspect is if they get enough to register for the event My bet is they will end up in a new lock down prohibiting large gatherings because they failed to set stringent guidelines for reopening. If the convention comes off, it will mean things like wearing masks, and limited numbers in the model and vendor’s rooms at one time. The banquet would need more space to achieve adequate social distancing. Dak
