Dave,
My apologies, I got so tied up in trying to describe my water methods that I did not answer your question.

The answer is: I do not have the foggiest idea of what my next build will be. I have not given it
any thought. I am very busy with non-modeling stuff.

Cheers,
Bob

Wow Bob....I didn't think asking about the water would open up your vast knowledge of different ways of going about it!

But I am grateful to learn about these techniques...thank you!

Holy cow! Those are some very impressive models, Bob! I especially like the one with the Gemini capsule. BTW, about the astronaut hanging from the helicopter cable -- what is the cable attached to?

Carl and Ray, thanks for your comments.

Ray, the whole diorama was encased in a plexiglass case and the cable was attached to the top of the
case. I don't have a photo that shows it better but in this one the cable was glued in place in
the top of the case and the excess snipped off.

Bob,
I'll try to wait patiently until your non-modeling stuff is done.
Thanks for the reply,
Dave

This is my home in a previous snow. I use this photo to wish a Merry Christmas and
a Happy New Year, from my home to yours, to all my friends on this Forum.

I hope that as the New Year approaches I will be able to get back to some model building.

Cheers,

Bob

Bob,

Nice card! Looks like 24"+ of the white stuff...lots of shoveling!

Happy holidays to you and your family!
I also look forward to your return to modeling!

The same to you Bob!

Neat card...would you consider also posting it in the "Seasons Greetings 2017" thread?

I see that the last time I posted here was last Christmas. While I check the Forum
several times a day I have done no modeling. Unbelievable!

Two things have kept me away from the modeling bench, my wife has had multiple
health problems and I am her care giver and the old eyes are going bad, can't see the
small stuff any more, I will need cataract surgery soon. My doctor tells me that most
people need that before they are 83 years old so I guess I can't complain too much.

I notice that several Forum members have been experimenting with cutting machines such as
cricut for making model railroad items and structures. I have used one of the very first
cricut models, and an earlier cutter which I forget the name of, for many years. Mine has
become hopeless to use so I decided to upgrade and I'll spend what little free time
I have relating my experiences in case you might be interested.

More later,

Bob

Bob, it's nice to see you posting to your thread again!
I know your wife's health has been keeping you busy looking after her.
I did not know about your eyes giving you problems now.
My Mother-in-law who's now 90 had cataract surgery afew years ago, and now claims she can see better than anytime in her past.
So let's hope that you can get the same results as she did.
