Medical Updates: After calling my Primary Doc down in Walsenburg yesterday, today I received a call from a Neurosurgeons Office in Colorado Springs. They'll be getting me in to see that Doc as soon as possible. A little bit of good news.

glad you got some decent medical news.

Agreed that 2 King Tigers are better than 1!

Where did you source the cool stencils from? I've become a painted markings convert.

I got some of those Alexen Model stencils from AliExpress. They have other stencils in different scales and styles.

Good Morning,
Those Stencils came from an Ebay store called Timos-Modeling World. (Sounds like a Yes on the China source)
Thanks for the positive Vibes on the Medical Stuff. They are appreciated!
regards,
Painless

I hate when injuring a hand (wrist) or even a finger how long it takes to be comfortable enough to continue this hobby. Yours is on a completely different level...

Gentlemen!
Thank you! I missed a couple days of work this week due to this stuff but have recouped enough to sit in my chair and do my job today. If I can work, I should be able to do a little modeling on the King Tigers. Need to take the old one apart, lose the screws and get some magnets in it.
regards,
Painless

Good Afternoon,
The last couple of days have seen a couple more bits of kit and crew come in for these Builds. Also, through a freak mishap, my left shoulder was dislocated very late at night this Sunday past. I was able to reseat it but as can be imagined, it is still very sore. Back to the Panzers. The new battery and great new way to check charges and balances on the batteries I plan to use for the older KT will be a Big Help. The crew figures are resin and will look very good in paint even with my limited skills.
regards
Painless

They do look good. You reset your own dislocated shoulder? :O Are you Colonel Flagg from the MASH series? Or has it happened a lot and it just falls out? I've known guys with that problem. I dislocated my knee and it was agony getting it put back

Panzermechaniker,
The resin figures available now have a level of detail that even the Tamiya figures from a few years back cannot match. They really come out looking grand when assembled and painted up. My shoulders, knees, ankles and elbows all have deteriorated cartilage. First time for my shoulder. I leaned against the wall in the bathroom and clicked it back into place. "Is it gonna hurt? Like CRAZY!" I'm on the mend. More fun with these King Tigers on the way.
regards,

Painless
