Baby on board!

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 21, 2015, 7:04 PM
hello everybody, we are back from the hospital with a tiny baby in tow. it was a pretty intense,scary,exciting and awesome last few days. my wife had a pretty long labor and by the end some critical problems wife was really tired(over 20 hours of labor) and my baby's heart beat keep dropping to dangerous levels(after we found out her cord was around her neck and she had got stuck) SO in the wee hours of the morning  my wife had to have a emergency c section to make sure both my wife and daughter would be safe. our doctor was amazing and both my wife and daughter made it through the ordeal.
On July 18 at 6:08 am and weighing in at a tiny 6.8 pounds, Annabel was born. to go from such fear to such excitement was pretty incredible. because my wife was still in surgery, i got to be the first to hold her which was pretty special. we are back home now and both are doing great. ill have my hands full and my model production will slow down but don't worry i have a couple builds on my bench and any free time(little as it will be) will of course be put to good use.
Thank you to everyone for all the warm wishes!  that meant the world to me.

Hi I am Enc86(Shawn) a 30 year old scale miniature enthusiast. I love building, kitbashing, scratch building and painting scale models. I have been building/painting different subjects for about five years now. I love to think up and create crazy scale model that are rarely "realistic" or "historically accurate" but I have more fun that way. Little rules, tons of time and loads of plastic and paint go into my work. I tend to bounce around subjects but my favorites are tanks/military vehicles, sci-fi, mecha and post-apocalyptic, and I tend to sometimes mash them altogether. My preferred scale to work in is 1/35 but I tend to build anything I can get my grubby hands on. I try my best and over the course of the last few years have improved ability’s. I have alot of fun with my hobby and as you probably can see, don't take myself too seriously.

I live in a peaceful, very rural small town in the tiny state of Vermont in the USA. i live in the "north east kingdom" region and is about as "picturesque woodland" as you can get. When I am not building scale models I am hanging out with my wife, our two daughters, dogs, cat ,rabbits and chickens. I am a stay at home dad and home maker by day and by nights turn into some sort of scale modeling madman. I take inspiration mostly from movies and video games as well as many of my wildly awesome fellow deviants.

If you have any questions about my hobby/work or just want to bounce ideas, feel free!

As if enough people haven't already asked... are you still out there? You've been quiet for a long time, and your creative influence is greatly missed.
