Return of the Artist

Been ramping up actually building out my started kits and scratch-builds, including pulling the plastic off a couple of old scratch-builds to maybe resume the crazy amount of finish work on them still left to do.  Been starting kits from my Build Stash, now that I have that organized, too.  2023 Update - have mostly cleared old projects off of the bench, and finished up back-to-back years of ESB/ROJ 40th Exhibition mega-builds for Wonderfest.  Check out the Current Projects menu (link below) for any updates...

3D Printer

CAD-dy Shack

Going forward, I am slooowly (and finally) ramping up  [re]learning CAD (after 35+ years) and 3D Printing.  Have only dabbled with some of the free CAD tools, a Prusa-MK3 FDM-printer, and a Cameo3 cutter.  This will include an in-hand upgrade of the Prusa to the MK3-S+ version.  On the cutter, I am perfecting styrene panel-cutting, which I had only used previously for cutting vinyl paint masks and custom vinyl decals.  At some point will add a resin printer (or two), starter ones have come way done in price and up in reliability.

THE Stash

It took 3+ Winters (2017-2021) to [re]organize and [re]inventory the 1000+ Star Wars kits for insurance (and my own sanity).  With an updated spreadsheet to keep up on real-time now, I am now slooowly working on standardizing kit stats for uploading to an eventual "My Collection" page.  I also have pulled about ten years worth of model kits for my "Build Rack".  That was easier said than done, lol.  Update 2023 - I have finally gone through and pulled all duplicates, which will be for sale at some point...

Status:  Complete!

The Build Rack

Between 2020-2023 (initially with the extra at-home time that the pandemic provided), I was able to narrow down the build rack for the next 10 years of build or commissioned-build work.  I add a few new ones here and there, hand-picking which of the new-school 3DP "kits" available.  The primary focus is on Studio-Scale, with some ​"other" kits, including autos, in the "hole".

Temporary Museum

Moved all display pieces to the utility basement for a more controlled environment, out of the way of any house projects, while designing a formal museum.  This is an older pic from around 2020.  Click the link below for more updated temporary museum pics.
