OK, I'm back in the saddle. I took a bit on a hiatus because I had some electronics projects brewing. I've done some more body work and applied some putty to the Ford Gasser. Now that the weather is getting warmer (I paint in my unheated garage) I hope to get a few more projects a bit farther on up the road.

I hear you on the painting. Small stuff I can do in my shop which is heated, but I have a new airbrush I'm anxious to try out and can't tell it gets warmer in the unheated shed I use for painting. :) I will be anxious to see further progress on the dragster!

I'm making some progress on the Ford gasser.

Spring is a busy time with the "honey-do" list, but I'm getting in a bit of model making.

I'm gaining on it. I've got the body primed and ready for paint. I've done some distressing to the interior, and I've built a radiator (lower left beside the cutting pad). I'm trying out a product that I have never used before called "Mr. Dissolved Putty". It looks like a Tamiya product. It is a putty/filler that is about the consistency of eggnog. It's applied with a paint brush and seeps into small cracks and crevices. It dries hard and is easy to sand.It also seems to do a great job of filling open grain wood. I guess we'll see.

Great! Let me know the final verdict on the putty. I can think of some jobs that would come in handy.
