Hello Friends,

My Takom bergepanther kits arrived yesterday!  I was doing good before that, but now I am pinging off the walls.  I’ll try to calm down long enough to finish this post, but I wouldn’t count on me being successful — not right now 😉


As those of you who follow me should already know, I have been struggling with the chore of making new masters.  However, I have been plugging away at it.  I don’t have anything new today, but I hope to have something for you next week.


As of right now, I have some suspension masters for the Panther completed, but I am holding them until the end of August.  Between now and then, I will be working to finish the 3 additional Jerry can Sets I have started, as well as 1-2 more spare road wheel mountings, and 3-5 storage box sets for the rear deck of your Panther.  I am also going to bang out 2-3 mounting ladders for the Panther, as well.  By the end of July, you “should” be able to equip your Panther with whatever storage items you might need.


I have one shop order at the moment, and it will go out tomorrow.  I also have 2 special orders in house, and those guys know what is going on with their items.  Otherwise, I NEED WORK!  So, go spend an hour going through our entire line and see if you can’t find something you need or can at least use.  I bet you’ll be able to help give me something to do by Monday 😉

 This is bothering me.  I now have 8 returned orders.  I have no idea what is going on, or how to find your email addresses.  All I can do is keep asking you to contact me if you are missing an order.
I am going to take a “working vacation” this summer. 
It will go from now until August 31.
I am still on this ‘working break,’ but — now that the bergepanther is in house — that might get interrupted a bit.  We’ll just have to see.  Otherwise, as I said last week, I’ll just dribble out new stuff as I get it done.  There will be no rhyme or reason to it, either.  I’ll just announce it as it’s ready and let things work out however they will.  The idea is to get the pressure I’ve been putting on myself off my back and help me get motivated again.


Here again, if you follow my updates, you know I’ve been struggling a bit.  I appreciate everyone who has offered encouragement.  Your concern means a great deal to me.  I just want to make sure you understand that my health is good and I am not depressed.  I know exactly what has been bothering me and I have taken steps to finally correct it.  Getting to this point took a while because it is related to the things that have been bothering me.  But I won’t know if my plan will work until some time next week.  If it does, I suspect things will turn around for me like a cork from a champagne bottle.  If my plan falls through,…  Well, we’ll deal with that when we come to it.  Until then, BERGE BABY!  🙂


Well, that’s all I have for now.  So, until next week, stay safe and try to build something (preferably something using TMD resin).
