I go out of the country for a few days and you land with this C-54 when I don't see it coming?

Very nicely done, Bob! Very nicely done indeed!

Hey Bob, nice to read that your getting back into the modeling swing of things!
I like you, have been very busy with work & getting things done around our house, that I have left to the last possible moment to do.
Looking forward to see what you come up with!

Nice looking aircraft, Bob. I flew to Hong Kong on R&R in a C-54 many years ago.

Pete, Greg, Kevin, Carl, and George, thanks for your postings, I appreciate every one.

I'm in he early stages of deciding exactly what I am going to do to get started on this new
project. As often happens when scratchbuilding, you hit a bump in the road and have to stop. I
would like to have four storefronts in this block and I started to lay out the basic shape
of all four together on a sheet of .030 styrene. I was hardly started and that's where I hit the
bump. Four storefronts, all three story buildings, even smaller ones, makes for a very
large and cumbersome piece to work on in 1/24 scale. I will have to back off and lay out four
separate building fronts to be joined later. Off for flu shots this morning and then some outside
work and then maybe I can get back to this build.

OR......................... maybe I can make them two story buildings?????? I'll decide that this afternoon.

Bob

Wow, I can't get started on this build. Each of the outside jobs turned into additional outside
jobs, I'm sure you know how that goes. Then Bruce informed me that there is a 2nd
string on interiors and of course I had to post a few interior shots.

Well, at last I did cut some styrene for this build, nothing to look at yet, just flat blanks
for the four buildings. As soon as I get a chance to cut in some window and door openings
I'll take a couple of photos.

Football weekend coming up

Bob

A few words of explanation. I have been terribly busy with personal things and just have not done
any model work. I want to get started on the block of four low relief storefronts, hopefully next week.

I have been doing some thinking about it and decided that I will use list member's names that
I have not used before. This is subject to change but this is what I think they will be.
Keep in mind that these will be low relief so there will be no room for interiors but I do
hope to be able to dress up the display windows.

1. Pete Magoun is from Michigan so I think I will have some sort of "Magoun's Cheese House"
or dairy store.

2. Mario Repinett likes to pile up detail on his model shelves so I would like to do "Rapinett
Fine Jewelry" to pile up jewels like his model cabinets which are jewels.

3. Jeff Betcher is working on (I hope) a very fine steamship model for his model railroad so I
think I will have a "Betcher Steamship Lines" office.

4. Back in the 1940's there was a very popular comedy radio show called "Duffy's Tavern" which
always started with a phone ringing and answered like this: "Hello, Duffy's Tavern, where the
elite meet to eat. Archie the manager speakin', Duffy ain't here....................oh.... Hello Duffy".
Archie would then explain some problem and lead into the rest of the program. Our list
member David Guffey's name will be used as "Guffey's Tavern".

Hope to get rolling on this soon.

Bob

Bob, this sounds like a great cast of characters & cool collection of shops.
And all being done in the great Santos styrene fashion!
Looking forward to seeing it all come together.
I will be more than happy to buy the first round for everyone at Guffey's when it's all finished.

The Cheese Shoppe, eh? Sounds like a Monty Python skit!

Just remember that the Python version "is certainly not contaminated by cheese!"

One of my so-called friends who is not on these Forums has made a distillery with my name on it; this could be the start of a whole new career!

Looking forward to this, Bob! And thanks! Lay in some good Stilton and some Wensleydale, too, please. Oh. And cheddar. Ya gotta have cheddar.

But no "Cheese heads." Dey're from Wisconsin, dere, eh!

Bob,
Guffey's an old Scottish name so a tavern to get a good drink is a great fit. Looking forward to see what you do...Thanks

Bob, I'm looking forward to seeing the models unfold. Great names, BTW!

Oh, and thanks for jumping in to this month's Photo Gallery with both feet!
