    my friend, this is one of my favorites, I personally love it when you get real and show how you do a certain technique or show how u wire something up or paint something, because i take notes and learn something every time i watch you. I love the attention videos that educate us model builders, and if i had 40k i would love a piece of your work, bu tuncle Sam doesnt pay retirement vets too much but you are a true master and a gentleman

      Well…I wasn’t sure if the film would be liked…or not. But it had no flash…straight on….thanks for your support. Thanks for your service…if few do…I appreciate it very much…Sir. It’s the lowest price I will accept for this piece….if it isn’t matched…then it will live here for…ever…..

    Hi Simon,Great reality show,it’s a hard slog that’s for sure,but if you love what you do then that does compensate a little i guess.
    I hope you sell the KBP at a price that you are happy with,i recently was asked to sell a custom made model i built,it was from someone in Spain,i was flattered to have them make me an offer,but i would’nt consider selling it at the moment,i spent a large junk of time on building it and it’s difficult to put a price to a unique piece of art.

      It does…..get personal…..if you spent a lot of time creating something….it becomes part of you….so yes…I get you….

    Your paint palette can be kept clean by covering it in kitchen foil,just push it into the paint pockets then throw the foil in the trash when your done.
    Airbrush lube is available from badger,it only needs a small amount on the needle,to keep the seal packing washers lubed,and the air valve trigger.

      Interesting…yes…I also have heard of rounded inserts for these palettes…..all sorts of time saving things out there. Thanks for posting that….

    Probably one of my top five episodes ever. I enjoy seeing the nitty gritty details of the hard labor portion. I don’t know how you do it for a living.
    I never want to build for commission, as I need this for unwinding and stress relief. Good luck with the sale sir!

      OK…good to know…glad it was fun! I am blocked by Facebook…they have torn down my business page there….and I have pretty much told them to go to Hell. But I will be setting up a method, by which I will have Messenger activated.

    Man, the Bird of Prey is so gorgeous. Loved watching you build it. Would love to see a museum buy it where all sci-fi nuts could get a chance to see it. When I commented the other day on Facebook about your Terminator work ethic I had no idea your video would actually be about how the business is a lot of work. You have set a standard that you have to be proud of. Inspiring.

      Aww Man…that’s nice to hear David…thank you. You either give it your all…or why bother? Other than family, this is my life. If your not on the Forum yet…please join, would love to see you there!

    Papa “the Terminator” Smurf, I hope people don’t seriously think what you do is easy. Of course pros make things look easy to any armchair quarterback. Every time I see the Bird of Prey I am crushing on that gorgeous beast. As wishes go, I wish a buyer puts it in a museum where many can see it. Here in upstate NY there is a new museum about 40 minutes from me is https://www.startrektour.com/ owned by James Cawley. Most of his collection is TOS but I see he is adding a few things from later Trek.

      You mean the actor who did the internet Star Trek films? Name seems familiar…I would love for it to be seen in a Museum. Tried to get into the Seattle SF Museum…but they would have tore it up…hung it from the ceiling…and in my opinion…ruinded the presentation…if you can get James interested…I would be honored to have it seen there. And….I would be happy to reward you for that….thanks for being such a great fan Dude!

    Hi Simon, I don’t know why I haven’t been getting your updates, I’m still subscribed but I haven’t received about the last 5 weeks. I thought something happened to you. I’m glad to see you’re all right.
