Looks like you grabbed a load of AM goodies! No worries about the start......a journey of 1000 miles begins with one step, right?

I'm a little more relaxed about it now, probably about the same place you were back then, if that makes sense?
What I do love are the kits in my stash that are begging to be built at some stage, it might take years but if they weren't there I may not get that drive to build? Who knows.
I do miss the comraderie here too, of course. And thankfully, I get a gentle monthly reminder, via PayPal, that Genissis models is still there when I need some "man time" lol

Back to the model, yeah this one was an easy pick and has been high on my "to build" list ever since I bought it. I'm looking forward to putting it, with pride, on my shelf with the others. I don't have the patience, talent, ability or whatever to take out the Top Gun trophy, I understand that. But participating is still a big kick for me.
Having said that I still have to finish the thing. Lol

On a personal front the last 18 months have been a health battle. A few rounds of surgery to try and eradicate this melanoma that has decided to attack. I'm looking ok right now and have managed to hold off chemo and radiation therapy. The cancer hasn't spread past my right leg so far. So here's hoping it just pisses off elsewhere. 😊

Good to hear from you mate, I hope things are going ok there?



I'm doing ok mate, not building as much as I was but I'm doing what I can. Been busy working on the house and also I spend quite a bit of time on commission stuff these days too and this can have a less than stella effect on the old mojo.

I'm looking forward to seeing the model come together too Simon and you can drop that negative I don't have the patience, talent and ability nonsense, I know you are more than capable of pulling a top gun out of the bag. If you are finding the model is tickling the old mojo you will be surprised how it can all come together I believe a huge part of creating a great build is enthusiasm for the subject and I can tell you are psyched for this one.

Man I'm really sad to hear of your health problems mate and I hope that the surgery is taking care of it and you can avoid Chemo and radiation treatment. Keep up the positive energy buddy and I'll send some from my end for you too.

Can't wait to see the next update

Pete

It's been a long time since that's been said to me Fabian but thanks for the flashback! ;D.

At Pete, thanks mate yeah I'm still trying to find the magic mojo elixir where the motor gets out of idle into a reasonable gear to head up these hills that keep confronting me. A stiff dose of opiate medication 24/7 for my auto-immune condition dulls the senses somewhat. I'll keep plodding along with this build and will knock out a reasonable product. I'm just the first to admit that excellence also takes a few extra yards of creativity and good old fashioned hard work.
As long as I finish it I will be more than satisfied as I think this build will offer some significant challenges to get through.
But I am looking forward to revealing to the group eventually.
This skin cancer is being a little persistent. I was on the bog last night and found, yet another, mole that will have to be removed. Lol I'm actually in the doctors waiting room as I type this so forgive the ramble, I'm just sick of waiting rooms.
Anyway, back to the pig, have a look at this video I found last night. I've seen the low pass but I've never seen the full video. Aussies doing what Aussies do. LMAO!

Lol Ted it looks like it lifted the entire roof off. Judging from the comments the pilot was "severely reprimanded". I wonder if he's flying rubber dog shot out of Hong Kong now. 😂
Boys will be boys.

Holy mowley !
a second fly past like that and the whole building would be destroyed....
I take it the large toilet roll at 2:20mins was for all the ensuing tears ? [smile]

seems this sort of thing must be like a rite of passage for jet jockeys,
I can understand the temptation for the pilots though [wink]

I wouldn't be able to resist [biggrin]
and given how much is invested in a jet jockey you could definitely get away with it at least once haha [biggrin]

Amazing power in that thing though,
if that flight had been directly overhead the building it would have come apart like confetti
