Hi all. This is my latest. It's not as detailed as I would have liked to make it, or as good as the supurb jobs I have seen posted, but it is special to me. I got this model before I went in for my disasterous surgery. It's been sitting in the box all the eight months I was in the hospital, and the last year and a half of therapy. During my coma, I needed dialasys, so they put a shunt in my shoulder. In the process, they severed several nerves to my arm virtually parralizing it. I couldn't move my right hand or arm for months. Therapy brought it back about eighty percent, so I decided to tackle this model. Something I thought I would never be able to do again. But I gave it a go, and this is the result. Like I said, not to what I used to produce, but it's built, and I did it, so allow me to brag...LOL.

Hey Ken - This is Great!. I understand the use of modeling as a therapy - I broke my neck about 3.5 years ago - Almost did'nt make it - But my wife would not let me give up. She had me do a few models, and even sculpt one (My Killer Tomatoes) It was the best therapy. Good to see that you are back at it... And looking forward to seeing more.

Hi Gerry...I know where you're coming from concerning almost not making it. I too was in that spot. At one point, I almost bled to death giving myself only a ten percent chance of living. The doctor asked my wife "How long are you going to let this go on?" In other words, we're ready to pull the plug. My wife didn't give up either, or let me give up. It was her determination that has me alive today. Thank God for such a wonderful woman.
