Hello from Buffalo
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, March 4, 2003 9:48 PM
OO, OK Yes It's cold and it snows a lot here. I a 57 year old Operating Rooom Nurse. USAF and USAR veteran. I started building models at about age 6...they were balsa wood back then (and yeah-we used stone tools). Clown [:o)] I had quit building models about 12-15 years ago,. After I had Open Heart surgery 2 years ago, Dead [xx(] I decided to go back to doing things that I really enjoy. Right now, I'm working on revell's USS Lionfish. What with one thing or another, About the only kit parts I'll use will be the 2 halves of the hull. This week-end , I'll be courting a divorce from my wife...I'm going to try photo-etching some of my own parts. [}:) I'll let you know how it comes out. If it turns out well, I'll write a little article on how to do it, and where to get the supplies. If it doesn't, I'll be looking for a new home, 'cause my wife'll kick me out.
Also-I've got all the back issues of FSM., including a few double. If anyone's looking for a specific issue, contact me. If it's one of my doubles, we can work something out.

Welcome aboard!!

So how did things turn out? You left us hanging in suspense.

Either you have some excellent photo-etch by now or have become good friends with a real estate agent and a divorce lawyer. Wink [;)]
