Wishing all the best of happiness and health this season and during the next year.

 

Hoping all of you get much plastic, brass, resin or whatever under the evergreen.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone both on the Forums and behind the scenes at FSM. As was said above, stay warm and dry. If you have to be on the roads, as was said in a famous TV series "Be safe out there".Coffee

Have a very Merry Christmas from just a tad north of Orlando. It's almost 70 here so no white or even cool Christmas.

And a very Merry Christmas guys and gals from the Old Dominion where we're enjoying 50F/10C temps and rain all Christmas Eve and it looks like Christmas as well. 

Still Santa brought me a Sherman so I'm happy...

Whoa! Another year is has passed since I posted this one! The time does fly. Time to renew Seasons Greetings yet again.

I'm off on one of my 1/1 creations and haven't discussed much modelling with the Gang but I do check on everyone somewhat regularly. MIA/FSM. I do have some cool models in the stash with Winter eminent.

The 1/1 project is a vintage Hodaka motorcycle from the late '60s. They don't call me Hodakamax for nothing, lol! A $65 purchase at a farm sale has got me started on yet another creation that I always wanted to build. The mission is to build a competitive vintage road racer/land speed record attempt machine for it's class.

I know, big ideas but ya gotta have a goal! In reality I'm getting too old for all of this but the project really entertains me and really is just a big model. Design, scratch building, could actually run and lots of innovation and entertainment for the old guy. I've already raced "The Last Great Race" in my career and if the project is ever finished I'll have to find some less than 100# and younger than me to steer this thing. All in the future I hope! 

Well, that's where I've been and where I'm going for the moment. 

Ok, I'm getting off track as my mission today is to say Happy Holidays to my modelling friends. Have a good one!

Max

PS--A long way to go but the prototype is slowly coming together. More info on the "2 the Max Project" on Hodaka Forum.

Thank you Max. Merry Christmas and a very wonderful New Year!

My son and his family can't make it down to Florida this year from SC and my daughter and husband will be spending Christmas Eve with him and her husband's family this year in South Carolina. Hopefully we will be able to all get together next year.

The wife and I will have a quiet Christmas eve, by just the two of us first time in 32 years!

Right back to all of you and your families. Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

The wife and I planned an evening just like you PJ. We're settling in our new cottage and will be curled up by the fireplace (never had one before) with a glass or two (or three) (or the whole bottle) and hit the sheets early. Got to get up early in the morning as the kids and grandkids will be here for the day.
