Greetings, from the Swamp

So, that post I made, about all that water coming down in such a short period time? Apparently, there’s a price to paid, for finding fascination in such things.

The One Day Flood

This all happened from a single cloud burst, that lasted maybe an hour, if that. It’s that short period of time that it happened in, that makes it interesting, not its severity. We’ve had worse, and it’s pretty mild, by most people’s standards for a flood, I think. So, when I “flood” I basically mean “the low part of the back yard turned into a swamp, again.” Continue reading ‘The One Day Flood’

Truck-Cat Finished (for now)

You can spend forever adding details to a model, and I will be detailing this one, as the opportunities present themselves. But for now, it’s finished. This, of course, means that I took too many pictures. All outdoor shots!

Cagey Beast

Short post this time. The truck-cat’s chase rack is finished, with all the light bar mounting brackets, and tie down eyelets in place.

 

Sanded, and ready for paint:

It’s since been painted with the same satin black Rustoleum I painted the rear slider bar with. At this point, it’s just a matter of finishing the light bars, and getting them wired in. Hopefully, I’ll have the light bars finished, within the next couple of days. Most of what needs to be done on them is trivial. There are some side boards for the bed rails I want to make, but they’re not vital.

The Truck-Cat Lives

Finally getting close to finishing this thing. Mostly need to finish the new chase rack and the light bars. The rack is just set in place, in these pictures. I was more and more unhappy with the first one I built. It doesn’t have mounting feet, yet. It still needs tabs to attach the light bars, and I want to add some small tie downs to it. Those will probably just be little tabs, with holes in them for hooks or scale rope. Still need to get the fuel filler painted, too.

Old Times: Part Deux

Did you know that Windows has a built in backup, that can create and restore a disk image? Pity it also has to completely wipe the existing partitioning to do it. Doesn’t matter if you’re only trying to restore a single partition…. Continue reading ‘Old Times: Part Deux’

Just Like Old Times

Well, this is fun? No. Fun’s not the right word. This is interesting. And, I’d put in a relevant clip from Firefly right there, but I don’t think I can use YouTube, right now.
