Just a quick blog tonight. It's been a busy week for me. My son Cooper, now 15, started school on Monday. Turns out that this first week was testing for many of the classes. Cooper only has one class, and it is over by 11AM. So, between chauffeur and dad duties (OK, so I like to spend time with him!), the days have gone quickly. Next week returns to normal.
This week, I have been chasing the many details that need to happen now in order to get the new project up and running, so that "Product X" can debut on time in November at Scale Modelworld in the UK. This project has turned out to be more involved and complex than I originally thought. The good news is that after a lot of scrambling this week, I think I have gotten most everything rolling that needs to be rolling at this point.
Being a new venture, there is much to learn. So far so good. I am feeling confident that everything will go as planned, and that the deadlines will all be met.
On top of that, I am hoping to get the next batch of decals off to the printer shortly. For those who have been asking, yes, the P-40 sheets will be reduced to 1/48th and 1/72nd scales. New sheets will also be run, but I'm not ready to divulge them just yet. I would like to give you a hint about one of the subjects, but the thought of it makes the coarse hair on the back of my neck stand up. No hints.... nope. Not gonna do it!
Tonight, I am off to the Greasy Gourmet, to have a late dinner with some of my local modeling friends. I have not forgotten about the promised build article on the Spitfire HF VII. I will post the second installment by Saturday. "Sure you are! This is me holding my breath!" I can hear you all saying. Not that I blame you.
Back to work.
Happy modelling. Roy
