    Your friendly agent "Fishcarver" has completed his relocation to the "Left Coast " of Canada and you can soon be looking for more build reports in "armored vehicles section".

    Where is Scud B model ????

    Comrade Fishcarver,

    We hope all the inventory has been successfully relocated with little problem and we look forward to the plant resuming full productions at the newly acquired facilities. Hopefully the new facilities are more than adequate to fulfill your needs.
    We understand that such an endeavor requires much effort and time and we here at the forums, look forward to the resumption of the auspicious Tractor Plant reports.

    Your friend and comrade in arms,

    Hi Russell!!

    Thanks for the welcome back!!

    Surprisingly, the 1:35 card models and figures (+/- 54 mm = 1:33) survived the trip better than my 1:1 wooden artwork, even though they were packed in the same crates/boxes.

    In any event, the Tractor Plant is now 2 time zones west of GMT and a new build will be coming soon! (or so Segey sez......)

    More to follow:

    Wow........... the last time a factory moved that far was during the Great Patriotic War.

    Are the T-34 coming off the line yet?

    T-34? NO!! It actually worked!!

    Tovarisch John:

    No! Never will the Western Tractor Plant probably ever build model of something like T-34. That was actually GOOD tank, defeating NGNB panzers.

    Tractor Plant West will continue to build the DMSS (Dream Machines of the Socialist State), praying only that the troops/missiles that they carried stayed alive to fulfill their missions....Ha ha.

    ...gotta go. I hear the zampolit..

    Welcome to the rim of the North Pacific. Oh boy, maybe you will start joining my interest in North Pacific style small boats.
    I checked out the place on my map of the Inside Passage and on Google. Definetly some small boat harbors in the area.

    You are only slightly more trustworthy now that you've moved further west. But this Russian Tractor Factory Jazz is taking it a bit far..., maybe your next move will be to some place even further west, like Vladivostok or a little North of there. Hear the winters there are something to write home about but you have to wait till late spring to send the letters off. Come to think of it you have to wait till late spring to do anything there...,

    Best regards, -Gil

    Shovelling the Rain

    It is snowing to beat Aitch here in LotusLand today. Go figure. I lived in "Winterpeg"MB (The Red River Valley, Heart of the Continent) for 55 years, and retire out here only to have this "unusual manifestation of global warming" smack us upside the head. I spent about 45 minutes earlier this AM, shovelling the rain off the car.

    Och; at least our stuff got here safely (including all of my card models, which survived the trip in better shape than some of my 1:1 wood sculptures).

    My bro-in-law has actually been to Vladivostok, recently in fact. He sez it is a real dump, and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy is even worse, what with the mothballed and decaying nuclear submarines lying about.

    It is good to be back on the forum. Once I figure out where I packed my models and tools, I can get back at it!

    Regards,Yer Canadian bud

    Things have really gone awry since the evil capitalists forced the loyal proletariat into hiding.

    "Give me back Ivan! He was a hell of lot more dependable than the new leadership which consists of Soviet Style, Pseudo-Capitalistic KGB Thugs!"

    Anyone seen my Polonium 210 pills, I seem to have misplaced them...,

    Great to hear about the snow. Means you'll have water for next year. Is it the wet or the dry kind. I ask because we have the wet style here in the Sierras. It's nickname is Sierra Cement and is really well deserved especially if you've ever had to try shoveling the stuff.

    What is this nonsense?

    Everybody knows that the Alamo is the heart of the continent and that the Red River Valley is the barrier that keeps the Okies from swarming to the south!:grin:

    Gil: It is the Sierra Ce-ment kind, on which stuff folks out here obviously cannot drive too good. On my 5-minute trip from the hacienda into Cowichan Bay, I counted 3 vehicles (including 1 SUV) in the ditch.

    Bob: You have your Red River. I've had mine!! :) Does yours tend to overflow its banks and drown the folks who do not want to leave?

    It is good to be back here on the forum. My "abuse quotient" was getting about 1Litre (= 4/5 US Quart) low.....:)

    Belated Happy Thanksgiving, Guys.

    Snow & all, Petro-Kam this ain't!!
