As much as I love your builds... I really how you take us on these short trips giving us a glimpse into your personal experiences. Most people wouldn't do that. I hope I speak for all of us when I thank you for the fun you continue to share.

Now get back to work! ;)

I think the tail section looks great as is

Cheers strolling down memory lane

I often catch myself in moments acting like my parents. The older you get the more you can understand what they had gone through and likewise, your kids will someday have the same experiences

Thanks for your compliment for my little dish.
I wish I could serve more good hot meal on a warm dish for you.

You are right, Analyzer-san.
When I was young and stupid, I often couldn't understand my parents and I often resisted them.
As you say, I am getting understand what they were thinking for their kids.
My daughter's are doing right so far. They should thank me so much because I'm trying my best to act as a living bad examples for them!

Dear my best friends,

I've been here in this forum for almost ten years now and I'm so lucky that I could know many wonderful people here. I know this forum is exist for exchange the information, tips and experiences about model building. But not only share about model building, I sometimes feel that I want to share some other things about me with my best and trustworthy friends. Maybe the best way to do would be talking each other in person with having some cup of coffee or some beer and that's what I dream of.

Thanks!

I love following builds as well as getting to know more about other people in the process

If you ever find yourself on New York/Philadelphia/Washington region of the US I will buy you a drink and lunch/dinner

It sure would be great to get everyone together in one spot. Best option though for something like that would be a group chat via Skype. But that can be hard to get organized

Today, I did weeding my little yards.
Continuing rain makes it look like somewhere in Amazon.

You are certainly a master at scribing panel lines and adding rivets. I have a hard time doing those myself. I always mess up the corners or wind up with lines that are not parallel or are unevenly spaced.

Weeding sucks. We have had a lot of rain here giving whole new meaning to the expression of "growing like weeds"

Your metal work is going from strength to strength Katsu-san , simply stunning !
Have you decided to ‘taper’ the rear wing flaps or will you be leaving it straight ? . Wondering also how thick/thin the sheet metal you’re using is, and if you’ve any plans to have access hatches open (main fuselage) to show off some internal details ?

Just mowed my lawns over the weekend - had a break from the wet, winter weather here for a few days. I hate gardening :confused:

Thanks Analyzer san,
Scribing on a metal sheet is rather easy because you can make it before bend or shaping.

Thanks Ged san, I mainly use 0.5 mm thick sheet. 0.3 mm for detailing and when I use more than 1 mm thick, I do heat up and hammering.

Maintenance access hatch is an idea I am concidering. Anyway, the back side of the rear fuselage will be open for holding a ground vehicles. So I may have to put a lot of mechanical detailing on it.
For a nose section, I may put some hatch for ..... wait a minuit... why am I feeling like I m provoked. .... You bad boy!

Yup, weeding is sucks. And bag it and carry them out is the suckest.

....Ah ha....:unsure:

OK,
We have been to Ameyoko, Ueno, Tokyo yesterday. Shopped some exotic food and spices. There were a lot of tourist from all over the world. Many Chinese and Vietnamese. When I tried to shoot ourselves, my wife suddenly imitated as Chinese and I could not stop laughing at her hilarious behavior.
'Nǐ hǎo, rìběn. Wǒmen ài rìběn!
'What are you doing?!'
'Who ever takes the picture at the place like this must be hicks or tourist'
'Oh, I see!.'

This place is the true chaos.

Great pictures.

Going into the surplus store would probably be an expensive mistake for me. I love going to the ones here. Getting to shop at one in another country would be amazing.
