Oh, it's been a while, where do I begin? Not sure if I can manage the order of things... from Hasegawa a 1/16 Wright Flyer and a 1/16 Sopwith F.1 Camel, from Wingnut Wings another Sopwith F.1 Camel, this one a 1/32 USAS, and a 1/32 Fokker E.II Max Immelmann, then I went all in with a 1/200 Pontos set for the Trumpeter Bismarck (wooden deck and like 20 or so PE sheets). That was followed by a shopping spree for tools and supplements, i.e. a Dahle lever cutter (for my art projects and thin strips of aluminium sheets), copious amounts of stuff to do diorama scenery (static grass, applicator and glues, foliage, leaves, clear resin for rivers - and a few furniture projects). Oh and the last thing could probably be called big scale ;) - it's a LEh-GOh London Bus creator series somethingsomething, which I've built last night and early this morning with a glass of wine or two to go while watching various Daniel Craigs-y James Bond movies... fun times, upping the difficulty as the bottle progressed ;)

However, I have yet been unable to go from "still eyeballing" to actually getting the Ebbro 1/12 Matra. I have had turned wheels for the Matra for like 2 or 3 or so years now, so it's about time to get the model kit as well.
/never mind that. Just ordered the MS11

:lol: Was kind of curious if anyone was paying attention. I guess I got my answer. Now for your answer, spot on. Just picked up the kit to setup DRO on both my mill and lathe. One readout box and 5 sensors(3 mill, 2 lathe).
I went to the Sherline factory to pick them up and got another tidbit of information you all might be interested in. If you are considering Sherline, they are increasing prices on August 1st. Save a few bucks and buy now.
