Hello?!?! Is this thing on???
Posted by Jester75 on Sunday, March 3, 2024 8:03 PM

What is happening my FSM peeps?? It's been a hot minute since I posted up in here. As it sometimes does, life has a way of redirecting your attention from where you want it to be. Any of us old school FSM members still hanging around the joint? Anywho, got some stuff cooking including finishing up one that I left off on too many moons ago along with a new one. Good to be cutting sprue and sniffing glue again. See y'all in the forums!

I've been around since before FSM even existed.  I've been building models for over 75 years. Still build an occasional wood airplane model.

Been here for a while, since 2018 (this is the second time). I try to stay engaged but sometimes "life" gets in the way. For the longest time I really enjoyed participating the Group Builds. As far as people, they come and go, and sometimes even return. What time I do have is mostly spent on building models and sharing them here as well as other sites. I also try to respond to many of the builds shown in the forum when I can.

Hope to be here for many more years..........

I have limited bandwidth.  Not my internet provider, me.  I easily get overwhelmed trying to keep up with all that is going on on the forums.  My eyes get tired, my brain starts to display that little rotating blue circle, I start to get confused, then I fall asleep.

I'm still here, I used to look in during my morning break due to the time difference and catch up with what was being discussed while I slept. The world being what it is the computers are business use only now. So I use my phone not great had to login twice to comment. At home finally finished a model of the Titanic and I'm in the finishing process for a group build projec.

I'm still around.  I found a good ad blocker so I could navigate this site.  The technical problems of the past had really made it difficult to be here, but things seem to have been fixed.
