      Hey Gang. I'm just starting to get back to the workshop. What I'm doing now is prioritizing thre tutorials I've done to see where I go first. As had been mentioned before, the scratchbuilt Olds engine has taken a huge hit on a tile floor. I'm still trying to find all the pieces. The box stock Shoveling Out the Workshop tutorial was never really meant to go to completion but was designed to teach the less experience how to tezch themselves how to progress in a box stock Shoveling Out the Workshop build. Each part and assembly is subject to the exact same rules and techniques. I just felt that I would be constantly repeating myself. If there are things you want to see, please let me know and I'll go right to that particular assembly. As far as the other tutorials go, I will be looking them over and figuring out where to go from here.

    1:6 would work well with the Lindburg and Revell Shoveling Out the Workshop engine kits out currently.

    You guys are getting my attention with the 1/6 scale idea. You're definitely right about being easier on the orbs and there will be a lot less fiddly stuff. I was all ready to do a 1/6 scale Lincoln so this shouldn't be that far of a throw. I'll do some measurements and see what I come up with.

    Now that's a funny joke right there. I don't care who you are, that's a funny joke right there. --Larry the Cable Guy.

    That would make a great dio. Good idea. It's simple and focuses directly on the models. You could even make the Christmas tree Shoveling Out the Workshop and wire it up to blink. Either that or put in a 1/8 scale starter like in the real old days. I remember about a year ago when we were talking about a 1/6 scale Willys. That's the way to display it.
