Hi Karl,I am so sorry to read about the problems you are experiencing with rheumatoid arthritis.
Oh! The joys of getting older.
Even with these difficulties you can still build a fantastic looking model!
This will be great to see you get back at the workbench again!

Karl

Great to see you back at the bench!

Boy----You sure know how to impress Rick

Sorry to hear of the Arthur-itis but it doesn't seem to have affected your style----looks wonderful.

Be careful going up and down the stairs.

Hi, Karl --

It's great to have one of your threads to read. It sucks that you can't make music with your kids!

I hope the health issues permit you to keep modeling and photographing your beautiful work.

i think i can speak for everyone when i say that it's really great to see you back building again.

i too have a difficult time playing my guitar/mandolin due to arthritis. then you throw in a mix of multiple sclerosis and it gets even more difficult, and i'm one of the lucky ones!


if you don't know where you're going any road will get you there.

Terry, Karl's models never fail to impress, but if you're talking about the camera, you're right there too.
Karl always has the latest, greatest toys to play with.

Karl, hate to hijack this thread, but since you brought it up , of the current Nikon DX bodies, which do you like best?


As you think, so will you be.

Hi Rick,

It's really hard to pick one camera or the other. I've been able to use most all the DX and FX cameras for years and I can't even recall most of the model numbers. But the D4 left a warm spot in my heart that won't go away! The thing is built like a tank and it would take a lot longer than I had it to even come close to what it's capable of. I mean putting these wonderful cameras on a tripod and shooting scale models isn't much of a challenge for the camera or the photographer...but it keeps me busy at least.

The D600 is a hefty beast when equipped with the 24-70/2.8 ED Nikkor. At my age, I don't think I'd like to haul around 3 bodies with constant aperture F2.8 lenses hanging off them...ouch. Check the weight on my kitchen scale - pushing 4.5 pounds.



Rick, they're all excellent and I enjoy the chance to play with them. I'll tell ya', the one I had some real fun with was the little P510 Coolpix with a 42x zoom. It was incredibly capable and I couldn't believe how small it was and the quality images it produced.

Thanks to the folks checking this thread out and the nice comments on my build. I'm gonna' keep at it as best I can.

Cheers,

Karl O.
Berkley, MI

Karl thanks for the info on the camera.
Guess your right though it's the guy behind the lens that makes the picture.

Still your one of the guys that knows how to make them come to life.

Karl,

I will be following your build very closely. I got a chance to see Earl's layout in person 13 years ago (my, how the time goes by). That visit still provides me with tons of inspiration. Not only that, Earl is a great host.

BTW, Nice camera.

Hi Buddy:

It's me again with a PS:

Are the lentils and sills from Monster Models Or scratch from wood?

Karl what you are doing on the brick work is fantastic. The weathering on the front of the building is well done. Your modeling skills have not suffered because of your arthritis.

Beautiful start Karl. After the last built that you posted here, I ordered the Monster Model Works brick. I followed your painting techniques and the results were outstanding. I love this product too. Thanks fro bringing it to our attention.

Looking forward to watching your current project.

Danny,
I second that! I found that these brick walls, (thanks to Karl O.), are the finest brick. Even if you aren't an experienced modeler, you will have no problems coloring them. They are definately outstanding, by far!
Nice start so far, Karl. Can't wait for your next installment.
