Post holiday blues? Santa didn't get you what you wanted?



Santa?? Pffft! If I want it I'll get it myself, the "DYI Santa" you know.
My plastic pusher notified me today that they are packing a box for me (FAUN L900 and a few other goodies).
The problem is that I have run out of space to store it all
It is winter and dark around these parts of the world, almost 60 degrees in latitude, same latitude as Seldovia Airport, slightly south of Anchorage.... Snow would have helped make it less dark but there is very little of it.
Summers are nice though, almost doesn't get dark at all
Chocolate is nice but I need to be careful, don't want to put on weight (not too much at least ...)
I have started cleaning out old stuff from the attic, dumping small childs toys on my niece who had a son last spring.
Some other stuff goes in the trash after recovering some parts than might possibly be reused sometime. After that I will have to get to work on renovating the apartment so that clothes can move from hangers in the attic to closets in the main bedroom.

Two spammers stomped heavily on.
Thanks for the Christmas presents!!!
I am leaving the thread since it might just be legit,
even if it is getting close to two years old by now.

What a nice way to finish off Christmas Eve and glide into Christmas Day

Marks e-mail checks out, he has a Flickr account with quite a few modelling photos on it so I will be calling this one legit.

The original thread started in early 2017 and Mark hasn't visited us since then. Maybe he went away somewhere ....
The latest photo in that Flickr stream is more than a year old.

I have my doubts about this one:
http://www.armorama.com/user.php?op=userinfo&uname=Mike-132
Profile looks a bit like a spammer but I have not made up my mind yet (names, e-mails, IP, nation/state don't match).
The store on e-bay looks empty but the feedback profile fits the "mission statement" (loads of AKAN paints).
Wait and observe.
/ Robin

Edit: suspicions confirmed by ebay. The seller-id that Mike-132 linked to does not exist anymore.

The IP-nr belongs to Dhaka in Bangladesh which is far from the United States. IP-nr also turned up "dirty" in an abuse-database.
Real name and email was too different, e-mail only turned up once in Google and that was as creator/owner of an incomplete web-page about yoga which linked to another web-site which did not exist.
Evidence enough for me and I needed to kill a spammer, it's been a long time since the last one ....

Searching on the e-mail adress didn't turn up anything dirty.
The IP-nr is allocated to Shaw Communications Inc with headquarters in Alberta (Canada) so the users claim of United States could possibly be incorrect since Shaw only provides services in Canada.
The kickstarter link does go to a fundraiser campaign and the producer name 'Steepled Hat Studios' seems to exist and make wargaming pieces and environments.
I found a blog post written by some Dustin talking about a kickstarter campaign for an iron age farmstead.

I would say this is legit.

This one is a bit suspicious.

https://modelshipwrights.kitmaker.net/user.php?op=userinfo&uname=anhuangdi

I don't know if the link goes to a real kickstarter project or not.

Suspended one.
This one tried to get clever and use a user name which was not a first name - surname combination.
The single post was more than enough evidence for a suspension though ....
