2018.7.20 UPDATE: It’s Time to Make the Resin Again

Hello Friends,

I hope you’re all having a good summer.  I know I have been.  I needed my ‘working vacation.’  But — at least for me — the summer is starting to wind down and I can already feel those little prangs of desire poking me in the back of my mind, screaming “Let’s get back to work!”


In case you’re interested, I have a ton of stuff up on EBay right now.  1/35 armor, 1/48 aircraft, 1/350 ships, after market, references and more.  Most of it is at decent prices, too.  Some prices are borderline fire-sale!  You can check it all out here:

Next Friday — come heck or high water — I WILL have a bunch of new stuff for you, and all of it from Karl.  I couldn’t quite make myself finish the Panther stowage sets, but I will have almost a dozen items for you Sherman/U.S. fans.   Make sure you check them out next week.


I am going to clear my bench and get back to work on the Panther kits.  I still have close to a dozen things I want to make for the stowage on these vehicles.  After that, I want to get down to the real work, like making new fenders, bent up storage boxes for the rear hull, good schurzen and hanger sets, tools — to include the many different configurations that the plastic guys always seem to miss, plus a whole lot more.  So, as you see, I am going to be getting busy again, and it will be just in time to meet the new Panther D kits that Takom will soon release (sorry, I’ve tried, but I just can’t get excited about the Meng kits.  There’s nothing wrong with them!  They just don’t do it for me – Joe).


The sale started fairly slow, so I was able to keep up with the orders.  I think the oldest order in house right now is only a week old?  But you guys are stampeding right now, and I have to make a few molds, so things will be a little slow getting out of here next week — especially since I have a date with some big cast Tuesday.

 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.

This is pretty much over.  Time for me to get back to work.


I was in a bit of a bad place a few months ago.  The easiest way to say it is I was close to burning out again.  But I did things differently this time and it seems to have worked.  I’ll have to remember this because, not only am I feeling better, I actually want to get back to work.  During my little working break, I was able to get some of the lingering chores done around the new property, and that helped, too.  So, all-in-all, I feel better than I have in a while.  Now it’s time to get going again.


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