In case anyone's interested, I've resurrected my SP in 1:120 blog http://espeett.blogspot.com/, with a new post last night on finally working out a workable plan for modelling Carpinteria. :)

Art & detail...?

Is he still doing anything, or even alive? I've still not received a reply to an email I sent two weeks ago, asking about the built/painted-to-order SD45 for which I paid a E250 deposit four years ago... I last heard from him on 19 September 2016, and I want my model...

Re: They're here!

I'm just wondering what condition the lemons on the bottom are in. There's probably 100 cubic feet of lemonade in each of those gons lol.
