      • It's been a busy couple of months. I haven't had any time for hobbies, with work, and planning for retirement. But I took these new photos tonight as an update on the restoration of the Talking Soldier and the AT Commander figures I promised. So here they are. First up, the Commander. He is now cleaned, and restrung, and has his voice fixed, however the words are very hard to understand, even if they are loud. Maybe cleaning the tape or replacing the needle will help.

        • Here is the Talking Soldier, before and after. He also has been restrung, and had the voice repaired. His voice is clear as a bell, and loud. Very nice. I still need to remove the blue spots from his face, and I'm thinking about attempting to give him some new hair. We'll see. Somewhere I saved a guide on which paints to use for painted hair Joes. Then he needs a new uniform (he didn't come with one), and tall brown boots, which I have already. I'll post more photos when he's dressed and his face is clear.
