New Job and a Celebratory Kit


My posting frequency has dropped off in recent weeks.

I want to take a moment to explain why.

First, work itself has been crazy, taking on new projects and seeing those I’ve been fighting for for some time really gaining traction. It’s left me a bit too exhausted to fire up the computer at night and pump out new posts…or finish drafts (such as the last PV-1 build post).

On top of that, an amazing new career opportunity presented itself about a month ago, and putting a presentation together for the final interview removed me from the bench entirely for a good week or so.

But, I’m happy to report that this week I received and accepted an offer for this new position, one that has me all kinds of fired up.

I’m hoping that, now that the hectic past few weeks are behind me, I’ll get new posts up with more regularity,  so stay tuned for some fun stuff, especially as the B-25 continues!

In the meantime, it’s become something of a custom for me to go out and splurge on something slightly ridiculous to celebrate a new job. Last year it was the one-two combo of Dragon’s Panzer IV Ausf.J Last Production and Tasca’s M4A3E2 Jumbo.

This time around?

MDC’s 1/32 Hawker Typhoon!

The Tiffy is easily my favorite WWII British aircraft (sorry, Spitfire) and, like the P-47 it’s not quite as cool as, is an absolute beast of an aircraft that proved phenomenal at making things on the ground go boom.

In 1/32 scale, it’ll definitely be a commanding presence!

    Congrats on the new job! I know how that feels…

    1/32 is big. After the problems with the bombers wingspan, will this mean a new display cabinet is in the works? 🙂

      Funny enough, the problem with the big bombers is more one of length. I’ve got two big 18″ deep display cabinets I bought when a local Hallmark store sold them, and 1/48 4-engines are just a bit too big. 1/32 fighters fit within them just fine. But wingspan is the easier measure for me to keep straight. And in 1/32, even something as big as a P-47 only has a 15″ span.
