 The Dead Collector: Bring out yer dead.

[a man puts a body on the cart]

Large Man with Dead Body: Here's one.

The Dead Collector: That'll be ninepence.

The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I'm not dead.

The Dead Collector: What?

Large Man with Dead Body: Nothing. There's your ninepence.

The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I'm not dead.

The Dead Collector: 'Ere, he says he's not dead.

Large Man with Dead Body: Yes he is.

The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I'm not.

The Dead Collector: He isn't.

Large Man with Dead Body: Well, he will be soon, he's very ill.

The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I'm getting better.

Large Man with Dead Body: No you're not, you'll be stone dead in a moment.

The Dead Collector: Well, I can't take him like that. It's against regulations.

The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I don't want to go on the cart.

Large Man with Dead Body: Oh, don't be such a baby.

The Dead Collector: I can't take him.

The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I feel fine.

Large Man with Dead Body: Oh, do me a favor.

The Dead Collector: I can't.

Large Man with Dead Body: Well, can you hang around for a couple of minutes? He won't be long.

Hmm? I'm hoping this means it will be done & dusted very soon :D & not gone to meet the Great WhIffer! :o

My modeling room became a staging ground for some home renovations and then work just got balls to the wall busy. I was hoping to have this done for the Fort Worth IPMS show last weekend but couldn't make the show and didn't have squat done anyway. Had I made the show, I probably would have just gave Scooterman shit all day. Oh wait, I did that at past shows, too.

I feel for you, work has a nasty habit of putting me on courses or sending me interstate to support projects every time I think I may finally get something finished for a group build.

Not so much an update but will have to post pics as I've been getting back in the saddle again.

The PBK-1 Tarpon now has a doghouse fairing above the flight deck for the radar (dorsal radome from the Minicraft WV-2 Warning Star kit which is another great Minicraft dog log of a kit I'll never build after trying to build the TWA Super Connie) and have added remote control gun turrets on the upper and lower outboard wings just beyond the outermost nacelle. Not sure if I'll keep them there, though.

Jokes on you, dude.  I wasn't there either!   :icon_ninja:

Nice to see you back, however!

I can totally relate to work getting in the way of the important stuff, Mr Chicken.

I can't wait to see what happens when you get back to the bench!
