Out of pocket for a bit
Posted by keavdog on Saturday, June 11, 2022 4:51 PM

I'm in the process of moving to Arizona - Stik and I will be neighbors  Stick out tongue . My house wont be ready until December-February time frame but we are packing everything up and renting in AZ next month so I'll be out of the model building business for a while.  I'll still be on the forums though.

Appologies to the group builds I have joined.  I will still be on the forums and maybe have a chance to build my F1 car for my group build after we get settled.  

Thanks,

John

No worries John.  Good luck with the move and get back to posting your awesome models when you get settled.  Tell Stik I said hello.

'Arizona' is kind of a large area .  .  . do you care to be more specific? Now, I'm not knocking the move, as I like and in fact grew up in the Phoenix area. Of course back then it was a small metropolitan area; now it's huge, if you include the surrounding cities. Scottsdale has quadrupuled, Chandler used to just be citrus groves and lettuce and cotton fields, Wickenburg used to be waaay out of town; now it's just northwest Phoenix.

Hah, it's funny to see 2 people who have a good knowledge in this hobby be able to live near each other Big Smile. I'm interested to see if you both plan to build any future models together. Whatever it is, I'm sure it will turn out good.


Anyway. I hope you have fun moving to Arizona. At least it won't be as cold there as it is here in Chicago, even in June!


Why do I keep changing my signature??

 Wish you all the best with your move and temporary housing situation.

Don't know much about the area SW of Phoenix, but I've yet to find a place near Phoenix I don't like! Excited for you. Almost got to move there as a kid but Dad changed his mind.

This area is nice and outside the city itself. It is bordered by farmlands and wilderness areas, so it has less hustle and bustle. The only real downside to that is a lack of multiple nearby places to eat. Aside from a couple small restaurants and couple more fast food places, it's a bit of a drive down the hill and into town for all the others.

You have to watch out for those gila's.  I saw that movie about the giant gila monster, that thing must have weighed at least 40 tons.  Odd thing though, it didn't leave much in the way of tracks.

Sounds like my kind of place. Quiet areas near, but not in metro areas interest me of late. I will have to check out the area next time I'm down that way.

Sure nice to hear from you, Stik. It's been a while.

Thanks Greg. I was in the doghouse on here for the first quarter of the year, so I've been laying low even on this place since. I'll still be around, but no more GBs or WIPs on here for me, only finished builds. I'm more active over on SPAM, Kit Maker and IPMS nowadays.

Well nuts, wasn't aware of all that. Good to know where you are though.

Be nice to catch up regarding your first yr or so of retirement and AZ one of these days.

Well join up on SPAM. We have a PM system that works there. Not to mention several familiar faces from here.

I used Tupperware bins and foam packaging material for my armor builds and polyfil stuffing (a recommyfrom Tony/Tojo) for my aircraft builds. I had over 300 builds to move... this is how they were until I had shelves built.

Glad that worked out for you Stik,I still use the containers to bring builds to show at meetings,they are great for keeping stuff like figures,tracks,and different kinds of AM.

My wife also commandeered a few for use in the pantry for her spice bottles.

Tony I kept a few of the bins and some of the foam packing for the same purpose. Most of the rest of the bins and the poly fil went to our new neighbor who uses the stuff for her hobby, sewing. That poly fill stuff was a great idea and worked like a charm! Zero damage to my aircraft during the move. Thanks again!
