The Court of Last Resort

As was always widely assumed, in KY, the foreclosure of a prior mortgage terminates any subsequently established lease of the property foreclosed on.  Opinion here.

In addition to the SB2U long term project I am working on, I am also working on this kit for a diorama I have planned.
















And I have gotten this far.












It is a simple kit.  I am building it out of the box. I hope to have it done before too long.

Temporary good news on the cheese front.

Scott “Skippy” King and I have decided to engage in a challenge build of the Special Hobby SB2U Vindicator.  I intend to post progress photos here as well as  reference photos and other interesting tidbits related to the build and the SB2U.

In searching the net, I’ve found numerous photos of SB2Us  Here are a couple of detail shots I found.  I claim no copyright on the phtos.  Two of them are photos of the SB2U-2 that is in the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola FL.








This is a photo of the fuselage panel removed revealing the right inside of the cockpit.








Another shot of the NAM museum SB2U with right panels removed revealing right insides of the front and rear cockpit areas.

Illegal cheese

Filed under: Modeling — dknights @ 3:26 pm

Sometimes I wonder…..

The Court of Last Resort

The regulators are out of control.

I know its not like we have real crime to worry about, but you just have to wonder if devoting time to policing cheese this much is the way to spend the money we are borrowing from the Chinese. Story here and here.

And related idocy here.

Modeling tool I didn’t know I needed

I like modeling tools.  I am always looking for something that might help my poor efforts.  Recently I acquired this:

Paint shaker

Paint shaker


















I like shaking bottles of paint by hand.  I find it therapeutic.  However, for paint that has really separated, this thing works wonders.  20 seconds using this and the paint is thoroughly mixed.  I have to say, I never thought I’d use one of these, but now that I have it, I use it regularly.
