Getting to Know Each Other - April 2016

Recommended Posts

Not really no. The sprue needs to be cut off and trimmed, and that little fleck of unpainted area taking it off would drive me up a wall

Question — April 19th: Do you ever try painting models on the sprue?

Despite having read how a lot of folks seem to think it's easier, I'm old and stubborn, so no.

Tried it once. Didn't care for it. Cleaning the mold lines was a pain.

Question — April 18th — Today is the Day of Taxational Doom in the US:

::): Refund?

:mellow: Broke even?

::(: Paying more?

:down: Owing lots more?

::D: ...not in the IRS jurisdiction!!

Identity theft: I submitted my return electronically and then was informed that I had already submitted a return. So I'm dealing with that. Once it is all settlers I will be getting a return.

Nope, never. Gotta remove all the mold lines and sprues don't fit well in Simple Green.

Other than the Reaper Bones Familiars, I'm not sure I've ever gotten minis on sprue that didn't need assembly. Plus, then you'd be getting primer all over your sprue.

I once painted some GW skeletons on sprue, and regretted it when it came time to take them off. Will not do that again. :unsure:

For me, "Broke Even" would be ::):, and refund would be :mellow:, but anyways:

 

I had a bunch of extra stuff going on, which significantly raised my Federal taxes, leading to significant, but manageable tax bills, from both the Feds and the state.

 

::(: ::(:

 

 

My wife retired after 30 years with the state and started another job. Her retirement income did not have any withholding set up. She didn't notice this until starting the taxes.  :blink:

 

Not a serious problem, just an unpleasant surprise. And we're set for the future, I think.

 

 

Ouch. Sympathies, Doug. Is it bad enough to incur a penalty?

I think scale modelers like this technique, and I have tried once, or twice, but found it hard to clean mold lines properly, and it requires a lot of cleanup after assembly.

 

I do sometimes prime parts on their sprues - it can keep tiny plastic bits from flying away while you spray them.

    • By TGP
      The roolz:
       
      The obligatory rules posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. If I fail to post a question, Inara (possibly) will post a question of her own choice.
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.

      Greetings forum things! Once again, I, the Griffin of Grumpiness snag the tattered robe of the Quisitor in my beak for this the ninth month of Old Rome's calendar and also the month all Turkeys Dread!
       
      Question for Thursday, Nov 1st:
      Halloween is behind us, how long will you tolerate the decorations thereof?
       
      When do yours (if you had some) get stowed away for next year?

      Penny ^ ...New model in blister. ^
       
      This guy is big enough to take up the footprint of four infantry skeletons. The penny is 19mm diameter. The plan is to give the figure a 40mm square, equivalent to four 20x20 bases arranged in a square.
       
      He will count as four members of the unit he'll be assigned to.
