    Marc Yablons sad passing got me wondering about some of our other members who seem to have drifted away.
    In particular Rick Brownlee aka kansas kid. A nice guy and pretty regular contributor and commentator who hasn't been around since June last year.
    Here's hoping he's well and is just taking a break.

    He withdrew from the forum last year soon after Hans van Diggelen. He didn't withdraw that quietly but quite sudden all the same. I'm sure his contributions are missed though.

    Gaudin (Dimitry) moved to Australia and took up other creative pursuits including recycling.
    He converted an old medical trolley into a sensational cocktail cabinet.

    As you can see he's becoming a pretty decent metal worker

    Gary Higgins .....has gone through a real rough time including loosing at least one leg , he still looks in now and then

    Chaos and goose do look in as well I believe

    Chippy has posted recently but has work and family he wanted to concentrate on obviously , he still dabbles and supports Bugle Call model Show

    Dels posted ref Gsudin ....I am doing the Anzac Roo he sculpted !!

    As I said many reasons including life getting in the way especially in the current situation

    Happy bench time and try and enjoy whatever you post !

    Stay safe

    Good to know!

    By the way, beginning of the new year due to unforeseen circumstances I have ceased and deleted all my PF Samurai pdf references and painting techniques references. Members are welcome to pm me for any information needed and I shall do my best to answer per your request.

    Cheers.

    Hi Felix

    That's a great offer to members and I for one can vouch for the help you will have available , not sure if it's possible to post a list of titles you might help with in a separate thread

    Happy benchtime

    As my name popped up I thought I had better chip in .
    I use to email Rick Brownlee pretty regularly but Rick had a lot of trouble with his computer last year and was without it for some time and he seems to have reduced his on line activity quite a lot .
    I don't post much these days as I no longer do much figure modelling and as I don't contribute anything I don't feel I can comment but I still love looking at what is going on and all work being produced . My reasons for less figure painting is 1/ eye sight getting worse 2/ my colour blindness has got worse than my eyesight . Ruined a few pieces before giving up so I do a few WW1 aircraft , old vehicles and cannons
    I brows on PF about once a week but very rarely post theses days .
    all the best

    Whenever I search for some info on the site, sometimes it takes you back to threads quite a while ago, and I am always amazed at the names in those threads that are no longer here.

    Cheer's,
    Jeff.
