Mark! Apologies for my tardy reply, the lack of prompts is affecting my returned messages. I don’t mean to use this as an excuse. I want to thank you. One of the first amazingly well done was your version of derringers I believe. Correct me?

No worries Bruce. I'm also very late in finding new posts and replies to Threads I'm watching due to the broken notification system.

Actually I did a replica of a Colt '45 Peacemaker pistol from Life Like Models some time back. It didn't turn ou a swell as I;d hoped, but I'm happy with it. I do believe I have a kit of dueling pistols in the stash too.

I'm looking forward to seeing more. I'm always thrilled to watch your work.

Mark!

TGIF.

Apologies for my grammar, as well. It’s been a tough week. Painted Kong’s base rocks two days ago and I’m still not satisfied with the dark grey glazes I chose. I started doing some research—

Oh man. I remember watching the original King Kong movie. I've seen the remake too. But..... there is one movie that made ZERO sense. Godzilla vs King Kong. Think for a minute. Both movies King Kong climbed the Empire State Building, gets shot down by aircraft bullets, falls to the ground with a thud, dead.

Now Godzilla is five times larger than ol' King Kong. Since when did King Kong get a grown spurt the same size as Godzilla - who is known for trampling through cities and towers over tall buildings? :bored: :giggles: :whistle:
