Thanks, guys!  I've been MIA as moved pulled up stakes and moved from sunny LA to crisp and cool Whidbey Island, Washington!   As for the MiG, it's headed this way in a Pod, and should be over in Everett on the 1st.  Then it's just a matter of getting a local moving company to bring the contents here.  I'm absolutely jonesing to get back to it!   Something interesting is also headed my way from Romania, so stay tuned for a new review featuring Kapitan Andreaa!


Congrats on the move and the new home. Looking fwd to more of the Lancer when you're settled in and have the hobby room up and going.  ;D

Ever so slightly OT, but is that a Ottlite on your workbench?  Love the long neck on it.  Which model may I ask?

Thanks for your patience, guys!  Sunsanvil, I'll have to look that model number up.  Great light!

Kapitan Andrea and I are back in gear! The move went well, and we're adapting to our new lives in a new home and anew place.  I won't say it was entirely easy, but we've persevered. I was able to get back to the bench in early December, but this is the first time I've been ready to post again- read on!

Nice update, Chuk

Welcome back, Chuk!  Your new digs look very nice, and I love that metal finish!  You should tackle the rocket from "When Worlds Collide" sometime, I think your technique would look great on it.

Thanks, guys!  I've been mucking along- lower wings are on- I'm waiting to get hold of the PE template for the upper wing from a friend before I glue them on.  Anyone ever used it?  Can you do it with the wings glued on?  I've been adding various bits of PE, working on the wing tanks, etc. 

Baron, I don't plan on leapig into NMF builds!  It is nice to have a metallic paint that I can count on, though- cheers!

Rock on, my friends-

Life after a big move throws a lot of surprises at you, along with all of life's regular highs and lows.  Just in modeling I've gone through periods of not even looking at the bench, to hours of studying the subject and subsequent squalls of charging ahead and then banging my against the table.  It's been about 7 weeks since my last post, so here's a long one for you.  Forgive me if I reiterate some basics- my original mission remains to instruct and entertain, and help grow our beloved hobby.  Cheers!

Thanks, Belugawrx!

Progress!  Here's the latest from my bench- enjoy!  It may be a while before the next update- I've got another project that will sideline the LanceR for a bit.  I'll let you know more about that as soon as I can- cheers!
