    Wow! The blaster looks absolutely fantastic Steve. Looking forward to seeing and hearing the finished version working with the sampled sound files I sent you. Wish I could afford to order one from you. The way the packaging was done was great fun too.

    Wait a minute Steve. You said we were “working” today. I thought we were having way too much fun to be “working”.

    And Jeff, those blaster tips are works of art. But the packing just blew us both away. We were giggling the rest of the afternoon. Your work really put the originals from Lunar Models to shame. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

    And to Bill too. That pulsar unit you made is incredible. The only problem now is trying to keep working on the other projects we are working on. Thank you.

    And Steve, maybe you need to sculpt up a “Rosie the Robot” model to go with the blasters!

    Darn it Ted, you didn’t hold the package steady enough for me to scan the QR code on the bottom of the emitter to see what it said.

    Steve, love the blaster tips. And I, too, was hoping to get a freeze-frame on that QR code just to see where the link went. If you could take another view on that box, I would appreciate it!. Also, a thousand pardons on my Spindrift windows suggestion. You were so right. I now see there will still be plenty of lip on top and bottom with those windows in place. You guys rock! Thanks, again. 🙂

    Just noticed you new “background” screens….grabs from “2001: A Space Odyssey” Yeah, big fan…HUGE fan of that movie, BTW.

    OK….I guess I can find them online, since you did….or, create in some sort of PhotoShop (or similar), etc.

    Point is, for anyone *anyone??) else who is interested in Kubrick’s “Odyssey” Masterpiece, then those screen animations are essential “must-haves” if you can include them into any model you build, to re-create the Flight Deck screens shown in the film, on the various spacecraft. (Using the available to purchase DVD of the movie as your reference, of course…as I do).

    Speaking of Stanley Kubrick…I hope and (don’t pray, because not religious) that NO ONE buys in to that silly notion that Kubrick helped “fake” Apollo Lunar landings!!! It is nonsense, and it stems from what is now an “internet rumour” because it started from ONE unsubstantiated source, many decades ago.

    The real connection to Mr. Kubrick and NASA (and thus the Space Program of the 1960-1970s era) involved a certain lens that NASA had commissioned, (and Kubrick learned of) which allowed his cinematographers the ability, previously unprecedented, to use very low light levels and still achieve depth of field.

    It was a lens developed by Carl Zeiss. In the late 1960s, only a few were in existence, and NASA was contacted by Kubrick AFTER these lenses were already developed….but the Internet nonsense that famed director
    Stanley Kubrick was “instrumental” in helping to “fake” the Apollo Lunar landings (SIX, in all) still persists.

    Sorry, but those who attempt to insist and persist in the delusion that Apollo was somehow “faked”? Maybe this strayed off-topic, but I have strong feelings towards those “Moon Hoax” believers, who I think have been sold a load of….snake oil, to put it in family-friendly language. Sorry, my soap-box is melting, but had to get that off of my chest……

    Regards to all (and Rosie…”Sit, Rosie, sit !! Good dog !!” She’s as obedient as “Ubu!”
