    Not sure if this is so but I get the impression that who you are seeing on the screen is who you’ll get in real life. Not too many actors do “that” for me.

    Tom, I can’t get enough of anything Jimmy Stewart does; I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched ‘Liberty Valance’, ‘Wonderful Life’, ‘Mr Smith’, ‘Vertigo’ and a whole host of others. If a movie with Stewart ever comes on TV, I HAVE to watch it.

    All of his movies are watchable.

  • Tom Cleaver said 1 year, 9 months ago:

    Indeed he is good. SWMBO can just about recite “Rear Window.” “Liberty Valance” is excellent.

    That’s tonight sorted, then. Snacks, a beer, projector. Jimmy.

    Thanks David.

    Today I actually accomplished some work on my projects. As I stated in my opening post, I will be using a new model “genre”, to me, card stock/paper. Because the original scale is too big for my builds I printed two model sets out at half size, which comes out to be approximately 1/65 scale. I printed them on Gray, 90lb index card stock. Hopefully this will be a good thickness for bending without too much trouble. I also have it printed on thicker stock for the internal formers. Again, this is all new to me but it’s fun trying something new. I will be away this coming weekend so I won’t be able to start cutting, bending and gluing until next week. More progression pics to follow once I start.

    Looking forward to it, Gary. It’s great to get out of the comfort zone; I know next to nothing about card stock models so this’ll be an education and maybe inspirational. Hope the trip goes well and look forward to you starting the project.
