Well the holidays have come and gone and the new year is well underway and I got busy enough that I didn't even put up any holiday greetings here or over on Facebook. My apologies to all but I do hope everyone had a good holiday season and that 2015 is shaping up well so far.

 In the media I have been troubled with the Charlie Hebdo killings and did find President Obama's State of the Union address interesting if not terribly surprising. I don't usually go to this area in a public format such as this but I am curious to find out if anyone or everyone thought the Republican response to the President's address came off to them as a poorly done Infomercial for the Republican party as I did. I thought it was a rude showing on their part, but not surprising given their actions towards President Obama throughout his entire presidency. To be honest, I am neither entirely Republican or Democrat, they both have their game playing at times, but the Republican party over the last bunch of years has just gotten worse and worse and have not impressed me in the least....unless you count the depths of garbage they will go into to try to make trouble wherever they can. This is all of course just my opinion.

Anyway, enough about that. My holidays went well, but flew by before I could really even stop to enjoy them. I did get hired on as a permanent staff member of the Riverside National Cemetary, which I am very pleased about and I did decide to finally retire from the Military Service (the Air National Guard) this coming May, which I am very much looking forward to. This will bring to a close 28 years of military service. Hopefully, it will open up some model building time and time for some other art as well. We'll see how that all works out.

Thanks to everyone who continues to look in at my work from time to time! It's very much appreciated. I do have a lot to work on and to share so by all means, please do continue to stop by once in a while. :D

Take care everyone and to all...as always....happy creating!!!! :D

Mk1 Colonial Fighter Completed by dinobatfan
Mk1 Colonial Fighter Completed
Here's a shot from mid December of the completed Mk1 BSG Colonial Fighter I've been working on for the last several months as a commissioned project. It came out well and my customer is very happy with it. It took forever to complete, not due to any complexity or troubles with the project, but just to life getting in the way way more than I wanted it  to do. Oh well, it worked out well in the end, and my client was very wonderful and very patient with me. :D The kit is a resin custom kit and was very well cast and was a breeze to build with very little cleanup needed and great fitting of parts. The landing gear is a little fragile and brittle, but still works well and holds the model up just fine. The power cart and other field accessories a scratchbuilt and kit bashed items from my spares box that were added just to give a bit more interest to the kit base.

Here's a nice photo I took one morning here this past September as I stepped out the front door one weekend. What a sight to greet the morning with huh? :D I just had to photograph this sky view and share it. Enjoy!!! :D

Caprica Mk 1 Colonial Fighter by dinobatfan
Caprica Mk 1 Colonial Fighter
Here's a photo of one of my newest commissioned projects. This is an all resin kit of a non-screen Pre-Battlestar Galactica series Mk 1 Caprica Colonial Fighter. The kit is a very well cast kit from Spacecraft Creation Models and is a very fun, pretty easy kit to build. There is some seam cleanup that needs done, and some flash around the canopy and landing gear that needs to be carefully removed, but nothing difficult, or painful to handle. The kit has taken me some time to build, but only due to life interuptions and nothing due to the kit itself. Enjoy the progress! :D

 Hello to everyone out there in the grand DA community! It's been quite awhile since I submitted any art or journal entries and it's time to get back on track here and up to date. I've had a very good Thanksgiving Day here with my family and do hope everyone here had a great Thanksgiving too. I haven't submitted any art or photos lately due I've been working on building some commissioned models, a little bit of my own modelwork, taking care of my family, and most especially I've been back working again full time.

 For those who've been following my work and journals here know that I've been looking for full time employment for the past several years and most especially over the last year or so since I graduated from college with my Bachelors Degree in Business Management. To say the job market has been nuts lately is an understatement. After 20+ years of honorable work in the military, plus a Bachelor's Degree and tons of varied, great experience you'd have thought I'd find employment pretty quickly and easily. Such has been far from the case.

 Anyway, I finally secured fulltime employment at last this past September. I am currently working as a commercial lawn irrigation systems specialist for the Riverside National Cemetery. Suffice to say, working at a cemetery is not where I figured I find work at. It wasn't even in my range of consideration, to be honest. But, it is good to work there, and unlike the Halloween or Hollywood portrayals, it feels much more like working in a park or woodlands area, rather than a cemetery. Of course, it is impossible to ever forget that I'm working in a cemetery, but due to the lack of upright markers (they're horizontal plates laid in the ground) it just doesn't FEEL like one is working in a cemetery. 

 They pay may not be as much as I would prefer, but is at least steady work, I am getting full benefits, and the location is close to home, with great hours. I don't know if this is a forever job for me, but it IS a good for right now job, and at least I am brining in a regular paycheck again.

 The job career field sure IS a crazy thing to be sure!

Anyhow, I'm still here and still looking to contribute here. I was hoping to get some photos of my latest work up tonight, but the day has slipped away from me, and I have to call it a night to get some sleep and go to work tomorrow. I'll be sure to post a few things tomorrow night.

I see I've passed 10,000 pageviews now. That's amazing!!!! :D Thank you so much to everyone who has looked at and shown an interest in my work! I know I've taken a substantial leave of absence lately, but I do have much in the works yet, and tons to create and build, so please do keep checking back from time to time, I do have much to share yet.

Take care everyone, and to all, as always...Happy Creating!!!! :D
