I really appreciate all of the kind words about the model, but I am even more happy that you guys "Got" the story behind it.
Every time when I sit at my workbench I am taken back to my youth. Stupid as it may sound, modeling helps me stay young.
I get the feeling that it is the early 60"s again.
I would go down to the workbench in the basement in the evening after my homework was done........and turn on the radio.....WABC am, Cousin Brucie ....was on and he was usually playing a Beatles tune.
I am almost 65 going on 15.
Not bad if you can get away with it.
