Gentle Giant
#9 "Julius Hungy Parobelas" the Gentle Giant.

Hard to believe I bottle fed him isn't it?
He is a Gelbvieh and Pinzgauer cross, and the first born of our only set of twins in the history of our farm that I had to raise since his mother rejected him. He turns five years old in December.

First Precious Moment
Her precious moment. 

On March 24th, 2015, my two year old heifer #2-13 "Freida" gave birth to her first bull calf, "Grayson." According to my records, the suspected father is my four year old bull, #9 "Julius Hungy."Gentle Giant by GeneralMechanics

Grayson marks the first of our next generation of hybrid cattle combining the Charolais, Gelbviegh, and Pinzgauer bloodlines.

The culmination of four years of work and her lifetime of nurturing, Freida was our first successful crossbreed between our Pinzgauer and adopted Charolais cattle. Even though she was the second born, she surpassed all expectations in behavior, growth, and maturity.

This picture is symbolic of everything we've been working towards. Freida was not just for show as some pen raised heifer, but a nurtured animal who would become a mother some day, and she was more than prepared for it.

What's on the desk 3-27-2015
As an unexpected turn of events, my sister's boss discovered that I'm a model builder and asked me to work on some kits for him. He's a Porsche enthusiast, and as such asked me to build not one, but three cars! Starting with the first to arrive in the mail is the Revell 1:24 scale Porsche 911 Turbo (1987 model).

This is going to take me away from working on the Perfect Grade Unicorn Gundam for a few weeks, but I will return to my Beast of Possibilities soon enough.

I'll be honest it's a big step back in time for me, since the last time I built a model like this was decades ago, when I didn't have the wealth of knowledge or years of skill to back me up. So far I've only done modular construction; assembling parts that don't need to fully connected to one another yet. I even used my UltraSonic cleaner to peal off the chrome plating on the engine parts so I can repaint them.

This picture's just to show him that "I won't let his car end up like the last car model (cough, standing over his) that I built."

For reference, that's the DMK-01 Optimus Prime by Takara. Optimus Prime DMK-01 by GeneralMechanics 

I'll post more photos of the finished car before I send it back to its owner. and I'll be sure to drive it in reverse to undo the mileage I put on it first...
Greetings visitors and friends of my DeviantArt Domain!

I send this journal entry to say that while in my period of minimal activity on DA, I keep a more regularly updated photo-journal segment on my Google+ Page. I'm not retiring from DA, it's just easier with G+ since it is built into my cell phone and is more rapidly available to post material online.

...or I'm just that one guy who continues to refuse to getting a Facebook page. 

Don't judge me, it's not like I've got a Zune. 

The address link is

"Apparently I'm popular there because people like my pictures of Gundam Models, Baby Cows, and Broken Tractor Parts!"

There you will see some in progress work of mine that I will later mirror here and in future model reviews on CollectionDX!
  • Listening to: Sansa MP3 player
  • Reading: model kit manuals
  • Drinking: water
