The Weekend Hobby Thread

Welcome to the almost world famous "The Weekend Hobby Thread." Thanksgiving weekend. Did you spend any time with your hobbies? Did you go shopping at an actual brick and mortar building?

Let's see what is in the mail bag this week. And guess what? There was no politics or current affairs. Guess you're stuck with various hobbies.

Our model aficionado Anna Puma submitted the following. She certainly is a patient person and has very nimble fingers.

annap1.jpg

This is the 1/48 Tamiya P-38F/G Lightning kit. This photo is test fitting of parts. Kit can almost go together without glue it is so well designed. Instrument panel is the Eduard Look pre-painted resin one.

The only fly in the ountment is Tamiya designed a Pacific Theater P-38 so if you want to build a correct European or Mediterrean P-38 the radio behind the pilot has to be changed. Since I was using from the Fundekals P-38 decals the markings for "The Sad Sack" just before the plane was written off after 18 months of combat that meant building a new radio rack for the SCR-501 radio. So with sheet plastic and the battery from the Monogram P-51D I built one. That is spied behind the cockpit in the photo.

Will post later a photo of the completed kit and show the only other change required for the SCR-501 radio set, that is an antenna located under the nose just in front of the nose gear. I had the antenna from the Hasegawa P-38, it was put on the Tamiya kit.

So I managed to kit bash what many consider a perfect kit. Go figure. - Anna Puma

The talented J.J. Sefton and I trade off every other weekend to provide the "Hobby Thread". My last "Hobby Thread" I covered deer hunting as I was going to participate once again in the annual WI Gun Deer Season.

I had a wonderful time at Camp Misanthrope with The Fabulous and The Dream Team. However, the bucks were not cooperating. So no venison. But that doesn't mean I won't share the following recipe with you submitted by Shari.

I might have to go online and order some venison. This sounds delicious.

We have no decent chinese restaurants in SW Idaho so we've learned to cook our own, including Thai. This recipe is fantastic with venison. Better than beef.

1 pound flank steak or venison
¼ cup cornstarch
¼ cup vegetable oil
2 tsp fresh minced ginger
1 TBL fresh minced garlic
1/3 cup lite soy sauce low sodium
1/3 cup water
½ cup DARK brown sugar (I use 1/3 cup)
1 tsp red pepper flakes (or more to your taste)
4 stalks scallions, green parts only, cut into 2 inch pieces
You can add blanched broccoli florettes/peeled cut stalks if you want (yum)

Slice meat against the grain the long way ¼ inch thick pieces and add to ziplock bag with cornstarch.
Press meat around in bag making sure each piece is coated with cornstarch and leave to sit.
Add veg oil to large frying pan and heat on medium high.
Add meat, shaking off any excess cornstarch, to the pan in a single layer and cook on each side for one minute.
If you need to cook the meat in batches because your pan isn't big enough you should do that rather than crowd the meat in the pan otherwise it just steams and doesn't sear.
When the meat is done cooking remove from pan to a plate.
Add the ginger and garlic to the same pan and saute' for 10-15 seconds.
Add the soy sauce, water and dark brown sugar (and red paper flakes if using) to the pan and let it come to a boil.
Add the meat back in (and any juices on the plate) and let the sauce thicken for 20-30 seconds
The cornstarch used on the steak should thicken the sauce. If it's not thick enough to your liking add 1 TBL cornstarch to 1 TBL cold water, stir to dissolve cornstarch and add it to the pan.
Add green onions (broccoli if using), stir to combine everything for a final 20-30 seconds.
Serve immediately.


Yummy.

Now boys and girls, this is what you call a "Work Bench". I'm not sure if this is from a hobbyist or some professional. FollyHerself didn't give out too much information.

I emailed in before with my cross stitch project, and people were impressed with my dad's Milwaukee drill. I thought I would send in a couple of pictures from his shed to show off his Milwaukee collection for him! - (FollyHerself)

I wish regular commenter and all around good guy, fd would have given us more information than the following:

Here’s some pictures of an old table saw I repurposed to make a router table. I used it this morning to whip out a couple of sign bases for Mrs fd. - fd

9 Nice idea combining the ex table saw and router. I have one of each and will have to do that some day. I spent a couple hours today readying for tomorrow's outing to the action pistol match. A couple hundred rounds of 9mm came out of the Dillon and all the gear is sorted and loaded into the car. Ready to go ring some steel.

13 Anna, my experience with Tamiya kits, albeit about 40 or more years ago, was the same as yours: They fit together beautifully. They are also perfectly scaled. The 2 tanks I built from their kits, a King Tiger and a West German Leopard, looked as if some mad scientist had turned a miniaturizing ray on the real vehicles and produced a tiny version of each.

I wish they would do some 6- or 8-inch figures. Yes, they have 1/48 figures to go with the military vehicles, but something taller with even more detail would be amazing.

22 It's so obvious that tools should be organized, but it is sort of tough to do, and then keep up!

I am in awe of people who are well organized.

Plumbing, carpentry, general home repair, guns, etc.

There is some crossover, and I am always wondering where to put what!

23 Venison? Oh shit. More venison. What the fuck am I supposed to do with so much venison? You grind some and mix with chorizo and give it to my brother. And he doesn't like it because there wasn't enough chorizo.

Most of it is tough. Seriously, lean, muscular tough. So, gonna do slow cooker shit every fucking day for he next year?

Posted by: My sister at November 26, 2022 05:53 PM (I9VC/)

24 As I continue learning to draw I make new discoveries all the time. The latest one is the 'magic' of hatching. I had assumed that he best way to indicate depth and contour in a drawing was by shading. Turns out that hatching, crosshatching, scribbles, stippling, etc., can be better. and surprisingly subtle.

The pencil drawings Alan Lee uses in his LOTR illustrations (I used a good magnifying glass) are some great examples of the effective use of hatching. Another fun skill to acquire.

I remember a cooking show saying you could cut meat against the grain thin to break up the fibers before cooking to "tenderize" it.

30 >>>[20] How do you make charcoal, Skip?
============================
Greetings, FenelonSpoke ... Many years ago, I made something called "Biochar" to help loosen up the clay soil in my garden boxes ... Skip may make his charcoal with a different purpose in mind, but I suspect the processes are similar ... If interested, there's several YT videos out there.

Organizing tools is easy: there's the general small carry toolbox, good for small home repair type stuff. Then there's the large tool box which contains tools for everything from rebuilding a transmission to framing a house. Most people call this amazing toolbox a "garage."

32 My sister, I never thought I would say this but you can sous vide it. Soaking it in buttermilk also helps tenderize it.

33 Fen learned from YouTube videos, lots on it.
But do simple container method.
Fill a clean gallon pain can with lid that has 1/4 hole in in. Pack in your wood chips or slices or branches, seal up and cook it.

Funny part is after some time, gasses in the wood fire off like a jet, first time though it was wrong but that is when it's getting done.

Good evening, Fenelon. I hope Skip responds. I know how to make char cloth for fire starting with flint and steel but making charcoal for cooking is probably more complicated.

39 I'm just finishing an oil painting using only a palette knife. I've wanted to reach for a brush more than once but I eventually figured out how to make the knife work.

I'm going to do more of these in the future. It's actually messier because I'm wiping down the knife often but it's nice not having to clean brushes.

41 I was running a bore snake through my AR today. I was being lazy and had only locked back my bolt. The bolt closed on the tail of the snake and I could not open the bolt. After fiddling with it for about five minutes, I finally mortared it. That worked. Crisis averted.

I'm in the process of building the Ultimate Jamma/RetroPi build.

The supply chain being what it is, I can't get a Raspberry Pi at a reasonable price so I'm going to borrow one from another project until I can replace it.

The only thing this build isn't going to have is a coin accepter.

51 39 ... polynikes,
I've watched a few examples on TV about painting with a palette knife or similar. (One woman used the edge of an old credit card.) It's amazing what can be done that way.

I recall Bob Ross often used a palette knife on his shows.

52 That router table is basically just a router mounted upside down.,with the bit sticking up thru the table. You can use it freehand (a little scary), or with a fence. It comes in handy for routing small pieces that you can't do with a handheld router.

No idea who took it. The yarn is 70% baby alpaca/30% merino. Lovely stuff. It's not my color but was on sale. And I have a friend that can wear this color. Will see how it turns out.

Its like my glasses. I put them on in the morning, and they're smudged. And I'm like " how did my glasses get so smudged and dirty.

Mice put then on while I'm sleeping. And they're "Hey ! Look at me ! Who am I "Hiya " ! And I can hear them in my sleep. They don't think I can hear them, but I can.

I periodically reorganize my tool pegboards and shelves. This process consists of sorting through the jumbled pile of tools, jars, bins, storage boxes, hand tools, handheld power tools, spare parts , random light fixtures, misc. plumbing parts and debris on top of my workbench and putting each in its proper place, continuing until I find the one particular tool I was looking for when I headed out to the garage in the first place, at which point I stop.

Until the next time I can't find a tool.

We chicken fry the backstrap. That works for most the hind leg, too.
My wife won't eat rare anything... and if venison isn't rare, it needs to be cooked to shit.
I do a good pot roast (which I eat) then do a venison pot pie, which she loves.
Venison cans wonderfully.
Grindings are all going to sausage, and we have many, many different types. Venison goes in any sausage... you just have to get your fat right.

Yes indeed. The challenge for me was to use nothing but the knife and figure out the techniques that are normally easily done by a brush. Blending facsimile and tiny details took some trial and error. Also since it's thick wet on wet you have to adjust somewhat. I'm stubborn and like to figure out stuff on my own to get my own style. Eventually I'll watch some YouTube to get some tips like I have for brush work though I'd rather not. Again stubborn.

72 polynikes,

I saw on previous threads that you have a kidney stone procedure coming up and were concerned about the general anesthetic. I've had several of these in the last two years and the anesthetic caused no problems. My doctors were concerned because of my age, weight, and mild diabetes. Turns out it was not a problem. I think I come out better than the surgeon.

Everybody is different, of course, but that is my experience.

Years ago we used a similar technique to char pieces of flannel cloth that we then used as a fire starter for flint and steel fire technique. The charred flannel will catch a spark that you can then blow on to make an ember to start your tinder. Now I just use steel wool to catch the spark,

80 Today's hobby: Boxing.

No, not putting on the gloves and getting punched, that would be easier. No, I have two weeks to box everything that is coming with me, and in the mean time boxing and/or getting out of the way what is not. Including stuff that will eventually come when I move again, but also stuff that is going to be trashed, given away, or is potentially part of the divorce settlement.

Somehow I think the Treaty of Versailles was less complicated, and less likely to piss off the Germans.

Posted by: polynikes at November 26, 2022 06:36 PM (nBhwo)

93 Hi all.
Venison..... absolutely love it. But I brine mine.
If you brine it after taking it off the bone (2-3 days in ice and salt) it tenderizes and improves the taste. I use about 2-3 cups of salt in a regular sized cooler, cover with ice and just enough water to float it all. Change the water after each day and at the end it's mostly water. Then rinse in clear water prior to vacuum sealing.

The dehydrator makes decent jerky from the leftovers.

Two does in the freezer this year, and looking forward to lean deliciousness.

Man, no shit. Most of my actual "wood shop" tools are still packed up from the move. I haven't needed many of them for the renovations because those are "contractor" tools. I had to dip into the boxes of wood shop tools for certain things during the renovations, so now I have half unpacked boxes all over the basement, and yeah the flat available surfaces are now occupied by half of the unpacked tools. I spent yesterday and today organizing the contractor tools that are finally leaving the family room (warehouse 13) and are going on the big shelf units I built when I first got here annnnd...I'm out of room.

I love the '69 set, either that one or '68 are my favorites of all time. Lots of great photos of players, regardless of how they came by them. The cards themselves look sharp, years later.

Yesterday,.Mrs. Sock and I went to Hobby Lobby and bought her a nice easel,,acrylic paint and pastel crayons for Christmas. Her biological father was a talented artist. He was and we think, he still is a raging heroin addict . Fortunately he has not been a part of her life since she was about 6 months old. She fiercely loves her stepfather and he in turn her. God is good and hopefully some day I may be able to share a sample of her work and bragvabout it. Thanks MHm

182 About to go but a few words for you BurtTC - harden your heart and steel your spine. Forget all past feelings and put yourself on a war footing. It's tough but it's what you gotta do.

Drop me a line if you like. Later everyone.

183 I didn’t know you were an Oregon State alum, nurse. My parents both graduated from there in 1959.

Holy crap! I hate the ducks with the heat of a thousand camels' roasted nuts.

LETS GO HUSKIES!

187 I do believe everyone has God given gifts, some are very special that children in elementary school can be way above levels of others who study a craft for years.
On other hand even if you are not of the gifted, but something gives you satisfaction or peace for a period as hobbies can, do it.

191 We had elk backstrap in Montana from one of Mr Tea's brothers. He cooked it beautifully. Best piece of meat I've ever eaten.

192 When we remodeled the kitchen, I saved the old cabinets and installed them in the garage. Then, of course, all the tools, wood, nails, screws, electrical sockets, flotsam and jetsam of the house got dumped into them.
After we had been helplessly looking for something, I just started putting all like things together and stuck a piece of tape on the outside that said what was in there. NAILS. And inside that door are all the little boxes of nails. It’s not the most beautifully organized garage, but it sure works.

193 The reason one boom seems at an angle is because the camera lens is directly over the other engine boom.

The Fundekals instructions for decal sheet 48-030 is 50 pages. They offer as many photos of each aircraft as possible while documenting all the changes or quirks in the markings. At the end of the document they even note the three main radio fits used by the P-38E/F/G/H models.

The new Tamiya P-38J Lightning kit still only has the original kit's Pacific radio fit. But do your research. Usually any P-38 with an antenna mast just forward of the nose gear means the SCR-501 radio. Unless we are talking the F-4/F-5 photo Lightnings, their radio mast was fitted on top of the fuselage in front of the pilot.

194 Anna Puma, there's a guy I know who builds models the way I imagine you do, with single-bristle paintbrushes painting eyebrows on the pilot and instrument panels accurately representing what the instruments would normally show in flight.

That sort of detail work would drive me batty, but the fact that I'm not interested in doing it myself does not in any way diminish my admiration for your skill and patience. It is very impressive.

195 BurtTC, I wouldn't say my husband is happy, but thanks to you I do have a better understanding of how he makes sense of things. This week he told me he had totaled the car, horrible damage, he was so sorry, etc. I said, don't worry, we have such a nice garage, it'll be fixed before you know it, and looked for a nurse. It turned out he fell out of his wheelchair the night before. A videocam triggered and they found him crawling, God knows with what goal. Well, thanks to you, I felt I understood what he was going through.

Sorry. I'll stop highjacking the thread.

196 Nurse, first of all I am not a Coug. I was a fan as a kid but mostly because of BB. I would root for the Cougs in the Apple cup and enjoyed some of their rare football success .After they fired their coach for refusing the vax I will root for abject failure in all of their sports teams. I am an EWU alum but GO HUSKIES! I will not admit that to my BIL because he's one of the annoying Husky fanbase

Posted by: Sock Monkey * Ungovernable at November 26, 2022 07:48 PM (//Rhe)

197 Sock Monkey,
No worries. I loved Mike Leach. Thought he was a good man and a good coach for the kids. I'm not a fan of the administration that fired the last coach because he refused the vaccine.

I hate the ducks. I only strongly dislike the Cougs, and that's only one week a year. My #1 son is a coug. He's out there now.

198 Anna, I haven't built a plastic model in years but I'm hankering' to get back into it, because of what I see as the dawn of the real Space Age! I want to build a Falcon Heavy so bad!

Here's my problem - glue management! What are the tried and true techniques for keeping it where you want it, and AWAY from where you don't?

Ps. My father patented some of the first very high speed food / milk packaging machines. He said the biggest problem was keeping the glue off where it wasn't supposed to be! In the years since he has passed on, it's pretty evident they have seriously backslided in this area!!
