HELLO been thinking about you latly . BUT I had not heard from ya so I figure you had some things that needed down at your job .
OK NOW YOU have given me somethng to think about?
. BUT last night I had an M 48 offered to me in 118th scale. A tank that you can no longer get.
IT was made a few years ago by 21 th centery. Been wanting to get a hold of this tank for a couple of years. Had it once but I let it go back to the person . NOW It has come back my way. Thinking about regeting it and do what I had plans of doing when I had it the first time but did have the information or back grown I have now .Yup you got it RC .
There is a U tube on this converstion that I look over last night kind of a neat tank. and I have a soft spot for the Patton. SO I am suer I am going to do it soon. So that could be my next project. .

I just got done doing some extra detale to me 5 1/2 escort carrier CVE 60 .
Had to pull it back home about 3 weeks ago .But that is ok it has given me some time to do some extra work to do on it that I did not have time to do when I sent it to a musem for display last year .
GOT a call to get it from them for there was some problems and the place got close down .
So any way I have been keeping busy..
So now with the 48 coming my way that may become my next one . So what are you saying about that M109 tank it is one your planning on doing or just giving me some new ideas? It looks intresting for sure and I do have an extra chassic I could use or get ahold of another one if I wanted it ?
OK keep in touch when you can .

DON
