Delighted to hear it, and WELCOME. Just a few more days. I gotta clean up the bench, finish the SNIPER by Friday, and get ready to start in on the Mini Cooper.

I gave my 13 yrold niece a cooper kit for her first kit.she likes it. Not to much longer I will post It finished. I gave all 5 of my nieces and nephews a first kit to build. I'm trying to keep the hobby going in my neck of the woods.

I try to do the same thing with my nieces and nephews and little cousins, but I cant seem to get them away from the video games and satelite tv long enough to get them started. My daughter (8 years old) has not built one yet, but there is not a minute that goes by that she is not standing over my shoulder watching me build. My plans are to take her to hobby town USA on her Birthday and let her pick out her own kit and build it that day.

I agree about the games . The boys could care less about cars . My oldest niece loves then. She wants a 350z when she can drive.

I sincerely hope you will let me join in at this late stage - I know Rob enjoyed the last one ;)

I have a build that stalled more than a year ago, a Sox & Martin 'Cuda that had a major stuff up on one side - the red partly lifted with the masking tape :angry:

I have just re-applied the red so the kit has moved back to the top of the build pile. I think this CBP has inspired me to complete it :D

A couple of points, it's not a three day weekend here in NZ (that was last weekend :rolleyes:) and of course timewise we are ahead of you.

Permission to start my build tomorrow (Friday) night?

Here's where the S&M stands at the moment, body painted but stripe yet to be applied to hood. Still needs work, and no prep has been carried out on any other parts (if I can find them!!)

I'm really kicking this around Virgil. I've had a box stock build bouncing around in my head for a bit. I might do it with you guys this weekend. More soon.

Delighted to see a few more folks joining in. It's been raining hard down here in FLA, and I am hoping for better weather so that I can get everything in primer as early as Friday, but we'll see how it goes.

I've changed my kit at this late an hour. I am going with the Shelby Cobra. I've always wanted to build me one of these.
