Fort Hunt Park in the afternoon.
First kit finished for '21 (tho most of the work was in Dec).
Budd Root's "Cavewoman." Resin model kit by Critical Mass, Sculpt by Mike Petryszack, based on a drawing by Frank Cho. Painted with enamels, acrylics, pastels, inks, etc, etc...
The usual disclaimer that I usually build spaceships and airplanes, and just like to try a figure now and then to see if I can do it.
"I ate all the bread you left out for the birdies. Bring me more."
Big spiky ice crystals!
my son has a raccoon infestation in his attic as we speak! Animal control says "we only do dogs & cats."
Fellas - it's not a fucking wolverine or an anaconda - they are raccoons. Grow a pair!
I miss that kind of stuff! But I don't miss winter driving in Wisconsin.
This is a house in the town where I live.
Yes, we do build 'em like that...
we have buildings like that too - except ours are FAKE.
Yep, a big thing in my county is strip malls with brick and stone facades in the front to disguise the fact that there's really nothing of substance behind them.
They all hide unneeded cookie-cutter businesses that won't last two years. The actual affordable homes in my county are cookie-cutter subdivision vinyl siding style.
A few have a brick facade portion as a feature but they look pathetic.
I think that building is 200 to 250 years old. Some down there are 270 years old
I assume they are paid off by now! That said occasionally they find a tree that old in my county, so there is that.
Keeping warm on a chilly winter day in Oakland.
Why does it look crooked?
I doubt it was intended to be crooked. But 250 years later it is.
I think its been 'off kilter' for at least 100 years
I imagine the ground under it has shifted and subsided a bit in that time.
Is it just crooked on the outside, or is it crooked on the inside too?
Dunno, never been in
Been to the pub next door quite a few times though
I wonder if there's a buried water way?
I've done renos on places along what was Garrison Creek here (before it got filled in during the late 19th) and over a 40' foundation run, there can be drops of over 12" in the floor joists.
Canadian pride aside, my money is on the raccoon.
He has family...
Canidae in all sizes! Coyote behind my house Monday night, and a fox Tuesday night.
One of my neighbors' doorbell cam got video of the fox being chased away from the welcome mat by her cat.
Tennyson judging me from the Pedestal of Superiority.
Hasegawa 1/48 Hawker Hurricane Mk. IV, the one wit da big 40mm gunz.
Kit decals, aftermarket seat belts.
Evil raccoon; nice neighbor.
The Mighty Jeep awaiting snow removal.
We'd already cleaned the cars off completely 5 hours earlier!
The gentle thrumm of snow blowers permeates the neighborhood
That's as of 4PM, with an other 3-5" promised over night.
yowza! Looks like you ended up with about 12" or so. I think Lanz only got about 5".
