Interesting (Fossil)?
My Wife, Son, and myself found this while hunting Crawdads on a lakeshore.  Not sure what it is, but it was interesting enough to keep :)
ALMA telescope (Atacama Large Millimeter Array) by Dented-Rick
ALMA telescope (Atacama Large Millimeter Array)
I do this because it calms me......Last night i wass feeling very anxious, so I did this easy build.  An ALMA telescope.  Took me about 45 minutes, and I felt calm and serene by the time I was done.
For the last year, give or take a month, I have focused primarily on building Warhammer 40K themed projects.  The main source of my Patterns is Eli Patoroch, But I have a few from SSE2009, and Dart Rabbit.  These guys are awesome with their creativity.  Lately though, I have begun to wonder if this is my niche.  A Fantasy Tank maker.  Aside from a few projects, all of which were easy builds, everything Ive built for the last year has been Warhammer 40K.  I find the patterns, SHrink them even further, and build even smaller versions of them.  that's been the routine. 

Dont get me wrong, I vastly enjoy doing this, which is why I continue.  How many people can say they have an Army of Tanks on their shelves, ready to take on the Paper Armies of the world?   I just wonder if im getting myself typecast, so to speak.

Doesnt really matter, i suppose, Ill continue building Tanks, with an occasional something-or-other.

Dont mind the ramblings of an old man trying to keep nimble fingers ;)

Hello rick,  I have not been to your deviant site but I check on your builds frequently over at Zealot and papermodelers.  Over there and at dakkadakka, my avatar is silveroxide, so I know that you are familiar with my works as well as I am with yours.  Recently I am working on a paper craft space marine but in a larger scale and making the templates for it.   I admire your nimble fingers and when I was way younger, my favorite scale was 1/72, where I could paint the eyeballs on those small figures as well as stripes and other micro stuff.  Age makes a difference and I have a hard time working with my big magnifier.  Keep up your works and see you around the forums.
