Hey Peter!!
Good to see you on this thread again. Terri and I were wondering about you! ;)
The pilot sculpt is definately coming along just fine, i'm being patient with it because it is so small, and I'm used tosculpting larger figures. :D
But, I'll try to post pics soon. I'll e-mail you and let you know! :salute:

C'mon Michael... I'm like doing a little Snoopy dance in anticipation of getting my kit!!! :muffit:

The molds are coming along. Will e-mail you in the morning to talk about some issues. ;)
Am off of the project for a day longer, as I have one more acrylic painting to complete for a long time customer on the west coast. :salute:
Will stay in touch with all on the board though. I'll check in tomorrow. ;)

Just goes to show you how removed from the music scene I am. Wouldn't have known the difference even if you'd told me!

You are so right! Sept.17th, hae a drink. :salute:
Randy Rhoads was and still is one of the most influential guitarists of our time. I celebrate his legacy and music, and post his image as an avatar because it reminds me not to take life for granted, nor our gifts that we have been given. In the twinkle of an eye, it can all end.

March 1982:



Associated Press

March 20, 1982, Leesburg, Fla. A small plane crashed into a
mansion here and burst into flames yesterday, killing the lead
guitarist of the Ozzy Osbourne rock group and two other people,
police said.

The crash killed guitarist Randall Rhoads, 25, the pilot of the
Beechcraft Bonanza - Andrew Aycock, 36 - and Rachel Youngblood,
58, the group's makeup artist and hairdresser. The plane's pilot
was also the group's bus driver. "He was a saint," Ozzy said, "He was an angel, and too good for this world. His death's always on my mind." Every year at the anniversary of his birth and death, fans from all over the world gather at his grave site to honor his passing. We will never forget him. His musical legacy lives on in the minds and music of his many fans.

Do or do not. There is no try.

Do it right the first time and you won't need to go back and fix it.

I am patient. Patient #17-09-1978 @ NUT-R-US. When I get my weekend pass I'll come over and say "HIIIIIIIIIII".
