Best wishes Jerry. Right about now the anesthesiologist should be stopping by.
Return soon with your hairy stick clenched in your teeth and your beady eye focused on the back of a number eleven viewed through XXX magnification barely touching a lump of refined petroleum.
Make my day!

Best of luck with your procedure, Jerry. Hope you're up and around soon and on the mend quickly, Brother! Show 'em what paratroopers are made of.

Wayne,Phil,Sean and John,
Thanks so much guys for the well wishes and prayers ! The tests were done and I do have some occlusion in one of my heart vessels but nothing alarming. Now to figure out what is causing this fatigue and weird feeling.
ORDERED to take it easy for 2 days and I will comply ! LoL Of course this means,increases modeling activity. Darn !

Jerry,
Now I have this mental vision of you arriving at the OR with a Go Bag containing an OptiVisor, No. 11 X-Acto Blades, and a tub of Apoxie Sculpt!

Nurse: "Uhhh ... Mr. Rutman, you won't be needing those, we have our own tools."

Stay healthy buddy.

Glad it didn't involve surgery, Brother. Get back to 100% soon! Make sure you stick very closely to what the doctor said, hehhehheh; I had a hand surgeon tell me that I should build to my heart's content after he did my carpal tunnel release because it was good for rehabbing fine muscle control. Must have gotten some evil look in my eye because he told me "But don't go and spend two hundred dollars on a kit and tell your wife, but Dr. Gomez said to do it...", I did get lots of mileage out of those instructions though.

Thanks guys for the very encouraging and supportive comments ! It's a really nice band of brothers we have here,isn't it ?
It's looking good for me. I still have some issues but it looks like open heart is nowhere near called for. Nice !

I got the flesh parts and the helmet done on a mini man while taking it easy today.






Thanks again for the comments. You guys ROCK !

That lift bridge will really give things a "Berlin" look because they were very prevalent.

It's all good Bill,all good.
I spent the better part of 3 hours wrestling this guy into a position that looks like he is actually working this field piece ! I will let this dry and make the anatomy look correct now.



He has the legs from the Dragon PAK kit and the arms and torso from the Dragon Klisuri Pass kit with the Hornet head of course.
A wider view of the proceedings so far.


Thanks for looking everyone !

The wrestling looks like it paid off Brother, he definitely looks the part. You know, Jerry the way you cobble your figures together you make me think you might have missed your true calling you might have made a very successful mad scientist, LOL.
