here, and I don't do advertising. You don't have to log in to view

however, this web site contains language and images that may be
unsuitable for children and adults who disapprove of unsavory
stuff. In fact, underage trespassers may be shot on sight. (Sorry,
but it's the only way to protect the kids.) Because I do care,
here's a broken link to a WWW
caponizer. Or you can whine about it to me.

to my big, bloated scrapbook of stuff, mainly 1:6 scale figures/dolls.
None of it's for sale; however, if you like to make things, you
might find some useful tips or inspiration here. (Note that most
offsite links are dead because I neglected to feed them.) I don't
cull old articles, so there's some ancient stuff here, a lot of
which I'm no longer...uhhh... proud of? The ubiqitous date-stamps
on articles are there to provide context.
as a custom Star Wars figures website in 1997, when dialup and hand-coded
websites ruled. It's still frozen in the era of "HTML for Dummies",
despite having flirted (briefly) with CMS solutions. Sorry, I don't
care enough about the benefits of cascading style sheets or dynamically
generated content, and I frequently use the Comic Sans MS font because
it annoys some people. There are no fancy gadgets, animation, advertisements,
or social media links here... If you can view this on a smart phone,
it's purely by accident. (BTW, get off my fucking lawn.)
The chronological record
of articles (WASSUP) is listed below and is the most frequently
updated index. The articles reflect the cyclic ebb and flow of my
oddball and nerdy interests. I eventually get around to filing those
articles under the category index links at the top of the page.
SCI-FI and MEDIEVAL are general collections of 1/6
scale fantasy projects and articles set in the future and ficticious
past. GI-JOE is where other stuff goes, along with reviews
and (likely) dead links to hobby resources. STAR WARS is
where this site started; customized 3-3/4" action figures. PG-RATED
shows my transition away from Star Wars figures and a brief attempt
at Garage Kit sculpting, before I began dabbling almost exclusively
in 1:6 scale. GFX is a collection of printable 1:6 scale
documents. BONHAM showcases some incredible work by an amazing
artist. Other categories are self-explanatory.
Another failed experiment
with interactivity fuses the old "Remarks" section with the
Guestbook. However, it does look blogishly modern and has a
very popular picture of Nadine Jansen.
