    Progress has been made in my conversion of Romeo Models Piper Kenneth McKay into a representation of Canadian Seaforth Highlander Piper James C. Richardson, V.C.

    As you can see, I am pretty much done adding colour, and all that is left is suitable groundwork (not looking forward to scratchbuilding all that barbed wire, but I do have a method) and of course some weathering. Should have it all wrapped up in time for MMSI in Chicago.

    I have a room booked and that is the plan. There may be PFrs from Ontario too but I will let them speak for themselves. It would be great to meet up.

    Great job Glenn. Awesome conversion and great work on the colour scheme... Well done.
    I am really toiling over the decision about Chicago... I'll probably drive and try to grab a room nearby. I'm dying to go but I'm going to NYC next week and I'm planning a new chopper project in the next couple of weeks. AAACK! Such a busy fall schedule (two local shows as well)... what to do, what to do?

    Someone tell me Chicago is needed for my overall well being...

    Thanks very much everyone. I appreciate your well wishes for Chicago, and I am excited for the chance to show this figure in person, as I am always concerned that my photography skills aren't up to standard. I'm mostly excited about the chance to meet up with people, so if I see you there, I hope for a chance to answer any questions you may have about the figure or Piper Richardson.

    Cheers Zeno. Ray Welshman has promised to introduce me to all of his Ontario Friends, so I am sure we will cross paths. Thanks also Adrian, I do work quickly while on holidays, but now that school is started again, my students will force me to slow down.
