Hi everyone,

Some of you may remember me as Peter from over at escale.

I wanted to pop in and say hello to all of you guys as I do miss a lot of the old friends i had over at escale.

I look forward to sharing what i have been up to over the last year or so, and look forward to seeing your work.

P.P.S
What you working on?

Welcome back to the modeling world Peter. It's good to hear from you.

Are you still bike riding?

Thanks :-) How are you mate. Yeah, still riding a lot. I've got a 10000km goal this year. Just over 5300km to date, so well on track :-)

P.S

What does your signature suggest? i.e the A B and Cs

Peter:  It's great to have you back among us.  Looking forward to seeing what you havery been up to.


As for me, I made the mistake of listening to our friend Skid Solo.  I find myself spending more and more time on the Dark Side.  Currently working on a small diorama set in the north African desert in 1942/43.

Once again, good to have you back.    JohnJ

Great to hear you're still riding. 10,000km is a lot of riding....keep it up.

I actually borrowed(stole) it from beowulf. A= acquired...either bought or gifted. B= built C= sold or written off or given away.

I haven't been building in the last 2 months. I've got a creative block going on. Besides a medical condition I'm getting over. But I'm have a feeling that I want to get back to it.

Good to see you back Peter!

One question I must ask though if I may, is there any way to access the old site even on a temporary basis to download pictures?

I managed to delete a lot of pics that were on escale by accident.

Awesome! Glad to see you again Peter! I will try and send you an email. I will also send you an updated family pic, even Eli is bigger than you now....of course that might not be saying much.

Your girls must be young ladies by now. Give our best to your family !

Hi Peter!

It is great to see you again, I am very happy you have signed up here. I hope you are in a better place in your life, very sorry for your lose.  I would like to take the time to say thanks for all you did with eScale while it was up and running, it was a great site.

I hope to see you contribute to this wonderful site Al has started, and share your fantastic building skills with us.

I do the LimeLigth here at Skids now. How about we feature you soon? You would be a great candidate, we all would love to learn more about where you have been and learn more about you.

Drop me a PM if your interested.

Glad to have aboard Peter.
