I’m pretty sure the U.S.Army used a similar term (as well as most all other armies), but, in the Marines, we used to call it a at-a-halt check. This is when your tanks are on a road march and you stop to check the tracks, running gear and oil levels. Well, I’m calling an at-a-halt check for TMD.
MY WEEK IN REVIEW
This was a frustrating week for me, and the source of my frustrations is the primary reason for my at-a-halt check. In reality, the same old problems that have plagued me since I started this company are starting to pile up again. However, instead of continuing to ignore them as I’ve always done in the past, this time, I am going to take time to tackle them. Once I get them done, I’ll start pumping out new items again. This should only take a week, so it really shouldn’t be too much of an interruption. If you want more details, watch for the JOE’S CORNER post on our blog page.
As I write this, I have 5 outstanding orders in the shop. All but two of them should ship by the end of the day on Friday. The other two need new molds. I’ll be emailing to let these guys know the reason their order has been delayed.
I ave new items ready that I could release today, but I chose to hold them until next week. At that time, I will not only put out the next series of items in my German armored car project, but I’ll also have some of Karl’s new masters ready for sale. I’ll post teaser pics on our Face Book page this weekend.
ON THE BENCH
I continue to work on the German armored cars. More details next week.
KARL VAN SWEDEN
From what I understand, Karl is focused solely on finishing the M10 driver’s compartment. I’ll share more details as he gives them to me.
The shop is a mess. This is one of the primary reasons I am going to take a time out. I need to finish some work I started back before the global virus scare derailed the world.
This is the other half of the reason I am taking a week off. I need to tend to some administrative chores that have been put off for too long.
THAT IS ALL
OK, that’s all I have for now. So, until next time, please stay safe and take care of your loved ones. If you can, try to build something (preferably something using TMD resin).
