To my fellow forum members,
I love you guys and gals. You all care too much for me and I want to thank you for everything. Especially those of you of whom wrote their best wishes and a quick recovery! You are my brothers and sisters!
I went from Walking Pnuemonia to seizures. What's strange is that there are no one in my family that had seizures nor having Epilepsy. So now I can't drive F$&@!!!! Well I can drive once my EEG test come in. These seizures are from my work related accident. 250lbs. of board fell on my head and I was buried under this. They life flighted me to Metro as I was in a coma for a week. Hence my problems now are due to this accident. But that's ok as I'm now making models with you all and this means so much to me! My only caveat is that I wasn't awake for the helicopter ride. LOL!
For several weeks I need to stay at home and am required to wear a cap filled with electrodes connected to a machine with cameras all over my home. The doctor now will be able to monitor my every move, this machine is a huge looking purse of which the electrodes are connected to. I wear this like a woman's purse. The machine sends a computer via wi-fi all of my brain wave issues and concerns. It's a PITA! And I hate it! I have to wear this and the purse 24/7. So this my current situation hence my current lack of builds or is it?
Since I have to do this testing, once I'm done Mrs. Toshi had a surprise for me! She purchased a Tamiya 1/32 DeHavilland Mosquito. Yes, the one that averages on eBay for $225.00 plus! That does not include shipping. As I mentioned before, she's a bargain hunter. She found one for $164.00 and negotiated with the buyer to do free shipping for my Mosquito kit!!! WOW and YEAH! How she does that, I know not. I'm just happy to get this next kit.
I now currently own the top 4 Tamiya 1/32 kits, Corsair, Mustang, Zero, and spitfire. Now with the Tamiya 1/32 Mosquito, I have completed my collection. It arrives from Japan on 4/21/17. The Japanese version does not include clear cowlings. Only the exported USA ones have the clear cowlings. What Mrs. Toshi was shocked at when she purchased the 1/32 Mosquito is that this Japanese model shop had the exported clear cowling kit.
If my memory serves me right, the clear cowlings are frosted. Depending on the frosted cowlings if it is so and the placement on the engines are as such, I just might delete the clear frosted cowlings all together. It'll look similar to my Trumpeter 1/32 P-38 Lightning. The only difference is that I don't want to mess up a $200.00 dollar premium kit. But I'm moving too fast at this point. I'm just trying to plan ahead.
Until the arrival of the Mosquito, please just be patient with me until 4/21/17. This is exciting as I always wanted this kit but when it first came out it was in the $300.00 dollar range. I want to wish you all, my FSM Forum family a happy Easter! Today I'll be watching on IFC (Independent Film Channel) Alien, Aliens, Aliens 3, Alien Resurrection, Alien vs Predator, then Exodus: Gods and Kings. For dinner we are having ginger chicken and rice. A very unorthodox meal but it's just Mrs. Toshi and I. Take care my friends!
An added note on 4/18/17.
My children and my grandson surprised us by coming over for a visit on Easter Sunday to celebrate with us. I had enough food so we all had fun and ate to our desire. The kids brought delicious deserts of Lemon Pie and Tiramisu. Ezra my grandson got his first Easter basket from Mrs. Toshi and I.
After a while Mrs. Toshi cringed through watching all that gore from Alien and Aliens, she changed the channel to a Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory Marathon. Everyone had a great time. In my humble opinion, this is what family is all about.
