Hello once again to all of you out there in DA land!! Wow! My last journal entry was way back at Christmas time?!!! How time does fly.... Sorry about this everyone. Life has just been cruisin' along, with not a lot of dramatic anything going on worth too much of a mention. I've been busy working, taking care of my family, doing lots of "Honey Dos" working on getting promoted at work, and achieving my Class B Commercial Driver's License (my drive test is this coming Monday), and slowly continuing work on this Space Battleship Yamato diorama piece that I've been working on forever it seems. That's my life in a nutshell at the moment. I did go see the Batman v Superman movie and loved it! I didn't care for the new Star Wars movie as much as I'd hoped to (it was too much of a rehash and remix of Star Wars IV. That and what is the Millenium Falcon made of?!! The same stuff as the indestructible Starbug?!) It almost turned me off too Star Wars. Some great looking scenes and SPFX but the plot has a lot of faults. I hope the next one is much better. The teaser for Star Wars: Rogue One looks excellent though! I'm looking forward to that! Trailers for Godzilla: Resurgence, Star Trek Beyond, and Captain America: Civil War all look great and I can't wait to see each of those. Haven't seen Deadpool yet, but I'm anxious to see that once it hits DVD.
Hopefully, once I am able to finish and pass my CDL drive test I can de stress some, finish the Yamato diorama and get back finally to completing more of the many models I have in progress and share them here.
Oh yes, a couple of kits I am sooo glad to see coming to light soon and am very, very anxious for are the Dencomm kits of the never finished(until now) Aurora Monster Scenes Dungeon and Animal Pit! It's amazing that these will finally see production and the light of day! Yaaay!!! If any of you have any interest in Aurora and the Monster Scenes kits I highly recommend getting these and checking out the book "Aurora Monster Scenes: The Most Controversial Toys of a Generation" by Dennis Prince and Andrew Yanchus. This book is a fantastic read for any model kit fan and particularly Aurora fans. It covers incredibly well this amazing line and is a great cautionary tale in how too many chefs can spoil a soup, and how to both market and NOT market a product. Truly incredible to be sure! Anyway, I don't usually plug products, but this is something worthy too be sure.
Anyway, I do hope all my watchers and visitors are doing well and happily creating away out there. I wish you all the best, and as always please do pop by here once in awhile and see what's happening here. I'm still here, still building, creating, and photographing, and sharing. I've just been having long pauses between submissions lately.
