Sure has been a while since I have posted anything here. First I want to say that I miss this community, and am happy to be coming back. Thank u for those who reached out to me in that time, and I do miss u guys, especially some of you that I had a great friendship with. One thing about this hobby, no matter how long il be away (not planning any more) I know Il be back. I'm a lifer..... I've been back in the hobby for a month now, however 3 out of those 4 weeks were spent in the Hospital. Long story short, some problem with my GI system shutting down, and not functioning. They still don't know what's up, but good news is I'm not dead, and I have a new perspective on things. This event is along the lines of why I've been away. I broke up with my lady about a year ago, and I did the single guy dating thing and didn't touch the hobby for a while, than I had to dismantle my workspace and move. After a couple months, I put it back up a couple weeks ago, and dived right in......
So enough of the boring stuff, Here is what I have been up to.....
Had to put the workspace back up first. Without this, nothing is as smooth for me. For me to really get creative, I need a nice clean workspace to build on. So I had to put it back up. Nothing crazy there, a little smaller than before, but same set-up. Got all the lights on one switch, and separately all the charging station on a separate. So no unplugging each other. Just one switch turns on both chargers and are ready to go. Real nice like that.
First, I'll start with a build I had just finished... NOT a Pede, but a lot of you had seen it. When I stopped, I had it just about done..
My Rally built, which will soon be a Merv. But I got it finalized. really all there was to do was to throw on the NOS Bottle (my signature) and the T-bone Chassis protector. But without the body, here's what It turned out like.
Okay, back to Pedes.... SO..... here is my baseline. As I said, I had broken up with my X, and of course I had built her a truck. Here is what it looked like.
But with all the pink and all that, its time for it to get redone and become my 2nd, I mean 3rd hooked up Pede I really hate downtime. lol.
So... Here's the new build. Getting this stripped, and with my strength mods on, plus Upgrades... OF COURSE
