2019.5.30 UPDATE: Taking Heavy Incoming!

Mushy, ‘Girly-Man’ Post Follows


I should have expected this.  Things have been going too good for too long.  That’s why I wasn’t surprised when Murphy found my range this week and started to pour on his artillery.  Or, put another way, this was a bad week.  Come on, I’ll tell you about it.


Everything that happened this week is entirely connected to personal struggles.  I explained some of it to you last week when I discussed my need to sell off my 1/48 aircraft collection.  I had hoped to have started this sell-off by now, but, as I posted in an update, it is proving more difficult than I had anticipated.  I’ve sold off before and it didn’t bother me this much, so I’m not quite sure why I am having such a difficult time with it this time.  I suspect it might have something to do with the other losses we suffered due to hurricane Michael.  Either way, I am going to sell this stuff and use the cash to re-invest in and grow TMD.


I had hoped to have had more stuff ready for you this week, but, as I just hinted, I have been under a great deal of emotional strain.  It may be different for you, but for me, if I am not right emotionally, it is difficult to master.  I can build, but not work, and for me, mastering is work.  That said, I have managed to get a few older projects ready for release.  This will be good news for some of you who have been waiting for the rest of the T-30/34 and KV-85 turret.  I have a few other smaller items I could release, but I might hold them back for a bit longer.

Watch for the new releases update to come out sometime this weekend.


BB and I have to go out of town next week.  I’ll be back Saturday, so the update will be delayed.  Naturally, orders will be delayed, as well.  I trust this will not be too much trouble for you as your orders help me keep going.  Trust me, you can order with confidence.  As soon as I get home, I’ll get to work on them.  I’ve been doing very good getting your stuff out fast this month.  Working in the shop has actually helped me avoid sliding into a death spiral.  So, if you need or want anything and can afford to wait a few extra days, please don’t let my short absence keep you from ordering.


Still working this, sorry.  The structure issues have finally been resolved.  I just need to sit down and make the actual updates happen.


Well, I have already explained my emotional state for you.  Typical for me, it has affected my health a bit, as well — but it isn’t serious!  Honestly, I am blessed and grateful for everything I have and have been entrusted to manage.  So, I do not wish to sound like I am complaining.  I’m just trying to deal with my share of the things we all have to deal with as we go through life.  I know each and every one of you understand, and that many of you have much more difficult things happening in your world.  If it matters, I pray for all of you.  You are not just ‘customers’ to me; you are honestly my friend — at least, that is how I see you in my mind and heart.


OK, that’s enough of that.  Go forth and build something (preferably something using TMD resin).
