I appreciate you guys for the encouragement. As I was packing up the hobby gear recently, it actually gave me a LOT of motivation to stay in touch with a hobby I love so much, and you guys too! I will be of and on for the next few weeks until the actual move is completed [May 2nd and I can "settle in" to the new digs]

update: Everything moved [5/2/2015] to climate control storage and a few things to the house I will be living in. Everything is going well. The hardest part is behind me. I went back to the storage facility today and moved a few things around. then I sat down and looked at all the hobby "stuff" still packed and stacked. I was allowed to run power to my specific unit. the top is open but has a very heavy wire mesh covering it to protect your belongings.Obviously, basic lighting is all over and you can see well enough to operate in general. I will be suspending my hobby lights from overhead. Next time I go I will shoot some pictures to post. It will be very interesting to have a hobby center in a remote location [about a 15min drive from the house]. Lots of privacy. quite different from any "man-cave" in my past--basements, attics, etc. It is unfortunate that the hobby center and my computer are in two different locations but It will work. Just means I will need to shoot more pictures to be sure I have everything I need when I go to cull, edit, and post.

Here is a link to the  thread about "showing your workspace" in General Chat. It details the beginning of re-establishing my hobby workspace. YAY!!!

More work on the new remote man cave today. Here is another link to the General chat--show us your work station thread.

http://genessis-models.websitetoolbox.com/post/show-your-work-station-5701093?pid=1287185085#post1287185085

I forgot to mention that I also suspended my 4' double fluorescent light fixture above my main workbench. It looks like a warehouse light since it is hanging from the overhead wire mesh [picture later] by some double "s" chain that was the common way they used to hang fixtures back in the day.
I have the light fixture closer to the work surface than I did in my setup at the old apartment and the lighting is better of course. I still have two swing-arm lamps to install as well as a separate fluorescent fixture over the paint both. LOTS of light!

BTW---I am going to call my cave "UNIT 7" [not hard to figure out--my storage unit at the climate control facility is #7]. I will refer to my work at "UNIT 7" from now on. Sort of has a scientific [think AREA 57?] sound to it?

Pete, since I am now enclosed in all that heavy gauge aluminum with a roll down security door to boot, will I need my AL FOIL hat? Oh...........wait, the top is open except for the wire mesh. I guess them Aliens and the guvment satellites can still get me??

Back to business. When I halted this project I was working on the bombs. 12 bombs were assembled, thermal ablative coating applied, Yellow AB on business ends, then tape strips were applied over the yellow in preparation for AB the bombs Olive Green.

TODAY, I was able to adjust some of the tape strips that had loosened and then AB the bombs Olive Green [TAMIYA XF-58]. After drying I removed the tape strips the reveal the yellow rings indicating that the bombs are live and that they have TAC. Mixed results but I am not going to start all over on them. I will do touch ups with a small brush.





basic fault beside uneven is that they are too "thick". oh well..........

At UNIT 7 today I had time to do some touch up painting on the 12 bombs. First time I have used the "expensive" brushes I bought at a local art store. At that time the Windsor Newton brushes were not available locally or online due to a problem with Russia exporting the red sable or elite badger fur that they use for their brushes. I bought the brushes pictured below on the recommendation of the art store owner. He is an award winning professional artist/ store owner for over 30 years. Still need a few more touch ups with Yellow after the olive green I used today is thoroughly dry.



the brush seemed very easy to work with and I had no problems except my unsteady hands....oops
