    Dusting off the Trek models, shelf by shelf. Figgered I'd sit 'em on the drawing board and take group shots while I was at it.

    The 1/537 scale kitbashes and conversions:

    1/1000 "other" which includes kitbashes, full resin kits, or conversions of other peoples' designs

    More 1/1400 resins, plus an AGT conversion

    ...and lastly (yes, I'm done!) the two 1/3700 kitbashed starbases with kitbashed GameScience ships (with casualties of moving)

    My first selfie after a workout at my ‘gym’.

    At the moment I’m just trying to get back into regularly working out/exercising after about 7 years off (with a couple of short term false starts in between) so am working on just the basics until I get into a rhythm.

    Going for looks first, then strength. I’m trying to be more honest about my motivations and looks really are what is most important to me right now. Hoping that my focusing on improving my shape I’ll get some positive feedback which will help me make it a regular habit. Once I have that I can add more strength exercises.

    1 mile of interval running (7:29 today, best so far!)
    3x upper body set:
    -5x pull-ups
    -10x push-ups
    -8x curls w/8lb dumbbell
    -8x tricep kickbacks w/8lb dumbbell
    (I’m waiting for a heavier dumbbell set to come up on my local Buy Nothing group)

    My short term goal is to regularly get to doing this 3x a week. Then I want to add squats and sit-ups on the days in between.

    looking good! Your "muscle memory" will kick in soon and you'll be a lean, mean fighting machine in no time. :yes: Smart move to define your motivation/goal first then build your plan around that.

    I just read your thread again (I'm a busy beaver in the morning trying to multitask) and you said you might add squatting to your workouts - do you have access to a squat rack or are you going to goblet squat at home with kettlebells/dumbbells? As for sit ups - hard pass on those. I did enough in the army - you know the drill on that! The only PT test event I was guaranteed to max because (sadly) I have strong broad "child bearing" hips and long legs! :( I used to HATE push ups because I sucked at them for the first few years of my career. Now I love the versatility they bring to the table - close hand, feet elevated, wearing a rucksack, offset with one hand higher than the other, there's no end to the variations! :yes:

    I've blown this up and carefully examined each window for naked ladies, and found none. Do better next time. :brood:

    I fucked this up in the building of it, and had to buy a second kit for replacement parts. The stupidest thing I did: Gluing the fuselage in stages and clamping as I went resulted in a twist, so the tail was about 5° out of line with the wings. So I tried to soften the plastic with a hair dryer to twist it back. Airfix plastic is softer than average, and the heat simply warped and curled the tail up like a finger being flexed. So I sawed the fuselage off aft of the turret and replaced it with the parts of the second kit. Rookie fucking mistake. :/

    As degenerate as SF is I'm honestly surprised i didn't get one in frame. I was fucking sitting in a Michelin star restaurant, having an exquisite meal, watching some dude shoot up through the window.

    Gotta share this one. The Awesome Van, in the wild:
    [​IMG]
    I will admit, it looks better in photos than it does up close. But I can fix that when I have the time and money. And coming out of Home Depot, if you're my age, seeing this thing is like seeing Superman or something. Even better when you know the keys are in your pocket.

    [And yes, I wish the back-end could be higher. It would look better with bigger tires and less weight in the back, loading down the springs. But then it wouldn't fit in the garage. And it is so old that it doesn't do well with being out in the rain.

    Also, the sunroof on the "hero" prop may be my safety net to sanity. Because it would be a huge pain in the ass to put a sunroof into this thing, so it will never be "100% accurate." That means I don't need to replace all the running lights with slightly larger running lights and rework the sun visor so that it reaches down lower (they don't make one like they had on the van from the show anymore) or a host of other little things that no one but me is going to notice.]
