Sorry I haven't really updated anything in a bit. Things have been hectic around here. My wife's little furniture restoration business has taken off. So I've been spending my off time taking care of our kids. The oldest will be seven next week and the youngest is one. So if I'm not playing with the one year old, I'm picking up my hour year old from preschool or the oldest from school. Or doing housework. Not that I'm complaining. My wife's business venture is really bringing in quite a bit of cash, which means more money for building up my collection and other things.

On top of that, I've been in the process of building a light box so I can take better photos. I haven't been too pleased with the quality of photos I've posted, so I'm looking to improve that. It would've been easier and cheaper for me to just buy one, but I'm planning into the future here and wanted one that was large enough to stick my Fort Max and the Encore version in side by side. It's massive and made of wood. Hope this thing turns out correctly.

I've been planning on at least posting my custom Seeker, but that's hit snags as well. I ordered reproduction long missiles from Broken Arrow Toys almost a month ago and still haven't received them. I just got an email saying that my order is being processed, so they should be here eventually. The last time I wanted to order something repro, it was from Jangar, but I never did as he was having health issues. Apparently so is the owner of Broken Arrow. This is just a sign that I shouldn't get repro parts.

As soon as I get caught up, I'll have plenty of posts. Thanks for sticking around.

    If it saves you any time, here's the light box I bought -
