Putting a face to a name .
Posted by Tanker - Builder on Sunday, September 17, 2017 6:26 AM

Hi ;

     I was just sitting there . I was watching the kids play ? with LEGOS and DUPLOS at our train Museum . Well , yesterday was our regular Kids Fun Day . As I look up groggily from the clamor  , I see a ray of sunshine .

   A Sprue Brothers Logo on a shirt . Accompanying it was the rest of the shirt with an I.P.M.S. Logo on it . And in the shirt was a person I had asked to meet sometime face to face  !

    Believe me it was really nice to meet Mark ( a shipbuilder ) and get to talk modeling stuff . I live in what seems to be a modeling desert and then this happens . It was so nice to see a fellow ship-modeler in New Braunfels .

    All I can say is Mark , Pleased to meet you and lets get together again soon ! Tanker - Builder

Hey Tojo !

 See , I can't go to most shows because of a lack of much money to spend on gas or food . But to be able to meet is special .I value this way above what most folks think . T.B.

Doc,

It was a real pleasure meeting you and listening about your ship builds and adventures.  This was the first time since getting back into model building that I had a personal conversation about it that someone understood what I was talking about.  Our time together was full of laughter and smiles.   

We will get to together soon and hopefully we can get those build pictures of yours on-line.  Everytime I see a pile of Legos It will always remind me of you and your pile.

Mark
