Just a quick message to say I am not making any progress. The second procedure was a bit problematic and I am supposed to keep my leg above my heart. I have a budget desk chair that does not seem to have this adjustment like the more expensive models. So not making any headway for now, as setting in one spot is not allowed. ( I did this anyway after the first treatment, but this time the doctor got my attention) I canceled this weeks visit so I can get up and move about and do something. Will have to re-schedule sometime in the future.
I hope to have better progress to report once I get this stupid leg fixed. In case you are wondering- NEVER try and drive 600 miles without stopping. It can cause vein thrombosis which sucks to get fixed.
In the meantime being bored, playing Skyrim, and watching football. I killed Lydia, our relationship had turned sour. She triggered too many traps. While sometimes it is amusing to watch her stumble into a swinging spiked gate over and over again, it is less amusing when she steps on an obvious trigger and drives rusty spikes through the top of my head. The break point came when I carefully crept past a fortress wall lined with hostile enemy archers, only to look back after clearing the danger and see her pull out her bow and take a shot at one of them! She died later as I tried to fire my bow at a zombie and she jumped into combat instead of staying out of the line of fire. It was a friendly fire incident, but one I was not grief stricken about. Finally losing interest with Skyrim, but it is much better than most virtual games.
Been thinking a bit about what to make in the future. These infantry models have been driving me crazy. Now I am trying to lay out the bits in the sprue and it seems the issue is the space between the parts. Should not be a problem, but it actually is the worst part. The parts you see when you get a model are the empty spaces in the mold that fill up. All the rest of it has to fit together just right. And when you are working with a series of parts with an organic parting line there has to be some sort of transition from one to the next.
If I have a breakthrough I will post some good news.
