I'm not leaving until it's quiet again.

Agreed. I have nothing more to say about that. I get bad visuals if I think about it more.

LOL.  I wonder what he is singing? Could it be... Jailhouse Rock? 

The warden threw a party in the county jail
The prison band was there and they began to wail
The band was jumpin' and the joint began to swing
You should've heard them knocked-out jailbirds sing
Let's rock everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock
Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone
Little Joe was blowin' on the slide trombone
The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang
The whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang
Let's rock everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block

Tim--I just had a thought. What's gonna happen to you when I post an actual build update? I fear you might go into convulsions. Seriously. When you check this WIP, tell you wife to stand by... just in case.

Tim--fair warning. I plan to work on the Icky this weekend. Get your bourbon out, you might need it. What am I saying?  I'm gonna need it.

To all: I suffer--you suffer. It is the cost for a Ick update. Here is another one of my stories. Black Eye

A Bump in the Road (Bakster short)

Nova and I are packed in. Sacks of dried bananas and jugs of drinking water are strategically positioned around and over us. A tarp is thrown over, Cornelius drives the horse on with a lurch.

This will be a three-hour ride that in the end will feel like three days. Every rotten bump jars us like a gorrilla clubbing. At first it was a tolerable nusance, later it becomes unbearable. 

Bakster: Cornelius! Why don't you aim for the biggest ruts you can find! We are really enjoying this!

Cornelius: Shhhh! Quiet! A patrol might hear you.

I can't be certain but I thought I heard them giggling. 1 minute later we hit a rut that sent Nova and I into the air. Needless to say, the supplies went with us. We came down hard, and everything became a jumble. If a patrol stopped us now, I am certain we'd be found out. We are on top of the whole mess.

Bakster: Cornelius! What are you doing up there!

There is no reply, only that faint giggling sound. Son of a... he is doing this on purpose! 

Bakster: Okay, smart guy. You just wait.

The ride from hell continues. Cornelius seems to have picked up the pace maximizing our jolts. The giggling continues. I was near the point of jumping up and plugging him with a live round. Fortunately, for him... the wagon came to a halt.

Cornelius: We are here! You can come out now.

I kick the tarp off with my feet and slowly work on getting up. I was moving like a 100- year old man. Even Nova was barely able to stand. I slide off the wagon, helping Nova down. Hunched over, I walk towards the front of the wagon where our ape "friends" are watching. Sadly--they seem amused. 

Cornelius: Did you enjoy the ride?

I give Cornelius a glare that wiped his silly smirk.

Bakster: You think that was funny? I have something funnier. How about I take this rifle and crack you in the head with it? How would that be?

I don't think I have ever seen Cornelius waddle away at such a fast pace. I caught a whiff of something nasty, too. He may have lost bowel control. The all three of them seemed to get the message.

Bakster: How about Nova and I just sit here whilst you three unload the wagon? How does that sound?

All three of them nodded yes, without a word.

It's good to be the king.

LOL. Instead of a lobotomy--they like to call it, "advanced brain surgery." Yes See the difference? Dr Zira treats her lab rats with (cough!) utter dignity. 

Remember in the movie:

Zira: Dr? This table is dirty.

Other surgeon: These beasts are dirty, Dr. Why don't they clean them up before they are brought in here? And they carry communicable diseases.

Australia's wildlife is in the news again. A week or so back someone was bitten and I think killed by a poisonous snake. I mention all this only because of our conversation a few weeks back. Steve5, stay safe brother.

https://www.foxnews.com/world/kangaroo-attacks-australian-wildlife-caretaker-who-was-attempting-to-save-husband

On a different note:

Last night I took a closer look at the Icky. And now I remember why I was so disgusted. Holes on holes, many are in complex areas. These include leading edges that I will need to recreate. The underside of the wing structures are peppered with holes. This is a bad joke, it is near daunting. I am not sure what to use, even. Bondo will be too weak for leading edges. I was thinking CA, but that could be problematic sanding against the softer resin. I am considering two part epoxy. It sands nicely, but it's a pain to apply. It's so sticky, you end up putting on more material than needed, which leads to more sanding than needed. Any way that I look at it... this is one major PITA. I will probably try the epoxy. Maybe I can smooth it out more by wetting it with my finger.

If all fails... I have a friend with a rifle.

Well, my friend can keep his rifle stowed. Icky will live to see another day.

I went with using CA. It will be difficult to see from the images how it turned out. It still looks bad. I won't know for sure until I get paint on it. Speaking of: I know some modelers apply silver paint or primer to check things like this. Any recommendations? I'd prefer something that I can brush on. I don't want to go through fussing with an AB. 

I put a dent in it today but there is a lot more to do in fixing all the holes. Then, there is a lot more work to do fixing other screwed up things. Still shaking my head, and still fighting the urge to kill Ick.

The take away in all this is that I pushed this slug hard enough so that intertia has it moving again.

That's probably the best way to do it. Trying to "wet" your finger's to get Epoxi  to be smooth would have been a total disaster....( ask me how I know .)

I use Gloss Black to help find trouble spot's . Plus, brushing it on will "Actually" help fill in some of the shallow spot's . ( Just remember to wait a day for the paint to dry..... Sanding semi-wet paint S U C K 'S ! )

First thing tomorrow I'm going to brew a few extra cups, for I have much catch-up reading to do.

All that I can tell you is if you are in the mood for some chatter... then you came to the right place. If you are in the mood for some actual building... this thread might literally drive you insane.
