Well, its summer- HOT! not much modeling lately due to other things going on. I bought a new machine- a micro lathe. Besides figures I do dabble with Formula One race cars and GP Motorcycles. I have made parts on my Harbor Freight lathe, but due to its size and inaccuracy, it was cumbersome (can you say cheap Chinese?). This little gem should do the trick. It's a Taig lathe, and it is made in the USA! Its only about 18" long. I can turn, drill, mill on the thing. For my busts, I usually use the lathe to machine a pedestal for the figure. Cool. More to come.....
