    This is what I do, it's called Appalachian style. Hickory, oak, locust, mountain laurel and old barn wood are what I use mostly.
    Just thought I'd show you guys something different.
    I'd be interested to see what the rest of you do too!

    I am within 20 miles of three large TX lakes (and many small ones), I have a Bass Boat, and I live alone - need I say more?

    I don't really model, but I collect WW2 Uniforms and Militaria, stamps and coins. I also really enjoy hiking, camping, cooking and traveling.

    You forgot to mention your taste for Heavy Metal !!!

    As for me, I am into Japanese Maples. I grow them from seed, and sell seedlings at flea markets.

    Nice chairs, Meatloaf.

    When I'm not modelling, or researching models, I play chess, walk my dogs, read or write science fiction, help my wife cook fabulous food for the freezer, work in the garden. Used to bird hunt a lot, but since I got my hearing aids and a warning from the audiologist about loud noises, that's faded into the past.

    Golf and cycling in summer.
    Skiing in winter.
    Will spend time on the Mosquito restoration as well as a growing list of reno projects around the house.

    Knit socks, draw, photograph, trying to run the roads flat w. biker buddies, drinking coffee, watching movies and tv series, reading, cataloguing my fountain pens and photographing them, doing writing exercises, and the usual stuff:
    Try to help my folks when I can, hang out with friends, chat with friends online, do my daily yoga exercises (Five Tibetans) and yank dumbbellss around, etc.
    Put short: Doing what I do best: Eating, sh*****g and getting in the way. :D
    And listening a lot to music. :D

    Unfortunately diabetes cuts into my drinking - I don’t like being up all night peeing - and I quit taking pic’s of fish a long time ago.
    I’ll try to figure out how to upload a photo of the boat.
