  1. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    I gave my Admiral a new car stereo for her old 2005 Toyota Rav4 for Christmas. Had it installed today. Huge improvement versus the stock.

  3. What have you received today?

    Scott, he is adorable! Reminds me of my Murphy, ... Murphy is little more than 2 years old and a sturdy little man weighs in at 28 lbs. Strong as an ox, gentle no biting. Funny and loyal. Great with cats too........
  4. What have you received today?

    I received a bad cold last Wednesday. Which is still with me, no changes. Don't even have energy for modeling.

  6. Floyd, there is a whole bunch of free classes on-line to learn SketchUp and be efficient in it. But for what we are doing go to Sketchucation.com, sign up and you have access to a huge library. Many of us using SketchUp learned it by trying by error. Many (not me) are today professionals in various design fields. SketchUp program cover a huge field other 3d program cannot compete with. Maybe I should set up an on-line class for you

    Steamschooner, those are beautiful ear-rings. Are you selling them? And what are the price/s?

  9. Sun is shining and temperature at a balmy 36°F about 2°C, birds are singing and the little snow/ice is melting. No wind to report either.
  10. Musicians and Modelers

    And this was my drum kit back in the 90's when I was in a band. Found this picture online so it's not my own but exactly the same. I was also lead singer for the same band. Two guitars (food photographer, chef), keyboard (restaurant owner/chef) , bass (chef) and me (pro-photo equipment sales rep.)..... later on we got a dedicated singer.
  11. Musicians and Modelers

    I am starting this thread or topic because of an off-subject in a build log. I am to be blamed for that. So in my turn I want to apologize but starting this clean topic. I know there are many of us playing music, maybe only as solo together with midi programs on the computer or just a guitar or piano. Some of us are playing in bands. So here is an opportunity to brag about your musical skills and show off your equipment.
  12. Un-install and try again. Would be my first step.
  13. That is so spot on, Danny. To Jim and Dirk, a great thank you to keeping us alive and afloat.
  14. Ron, open up the extension library, there are tons of add-ons for various "curves". As for inspiration here is a yacht done in SketchUp There are a lot of tutorials in this matter, Bing or Google it. I found many doing so.
  15. What have you received today?

    Was at an auto paint store the other day, looking for an adapter to my air compressor. They didn't have what I was looking for, but picked up the auto putty instead. Will be interesting to see how it turns out.
