    To get us started, here's the Methodist church in my home town, taken a couple of summers ago when I was cleaning out my parents' house before selling it.

    First model finished this year - this is a 1/8 scale resin kit of Gal Godot as Wonder Woman. Since I usually do airplanes and spaceships, I'm just happy I got the paint job looking relatively like a person.

    So Forbin - can you make a life sized Wonder Woman? Just asking for a friend! Also my friend wonders if you could make a soft latex version.

    Scenes from my slog home during the nor-easter Thursday afternoon. I left work at 1PM, took an hour to go the 22 miles home. Traffic was light, but the roads were murder. At one point I was right behind the plows, which is a great place to find yourself. At another point my all-wheel-drive system was slipping so bad, it couldn't figure out which wheel to put the power to, the dashboard light came on, and all four wheels STOPPED driving! Thankfully that only lasted a second or two.

    An hour to go 22 miles? You shaved 10 minutes off your usual commute time. Go winter!

    My parents had a dog that looked a lot like the one on the left! Not a dog lover but it was well behaved & friendly/fun loving.

    Because I know y'all love this kind of thing :D , here's my drive home from work during the Jan 4 snowstorm, speeded up to condense 1 hour into 5 minutes. I started out a 1PM to avoid rush hour traffic, which clearly worked out.

    So for no particular reason, Moebius Models put out a 1/8 scale Grim Reaper model kit. I put our doggies' names on the headstones and replaced the crappy plastic hourglass with a real one.

    One would imagine a close-up view of Death’s ass would make one scream.

    Overturned semi and car crash right before my exit. :bang:
    Obviosuly they had a worse day, though.
    The traffic jam was 2.5 miles long and took 45 minutes - only one lane was open (out of 3) at the crash, so, lotsa merging.
    Those first two pics are pretty much my vision of what my hell will be like.

    ^That base is a couple of shell holder panels from old plastic .22 cartridge boxes.

    How do you know they're Canadian? They could just as well be from North Dakota.

    Urban coyote. You don’t usually see them running around in the middle of the day, so maybe the snow storm confused him.

    As long as I built a 20-year-old Ripley model, I dug out a 20-year-old Xenomorph model too.
