Simple build.....yeah, right.

 

Well, for you it is, I suppose!

 

Actually, those mods aren't too tough. I have one of those kits, and I'll probably do some of that.

 

For curiosity's sake, Bill, what thickness plastic did you use for spacers on those louvers? I didn't see it listed.

 

And yes, MEK is rather potent. I would suggest- STRONGLY- that you use a fan blowing air away from you (and not in any way towards you) if you use it to help control the fumes, or work next to an open window. If you can get a fan and window, even better. If that's not possible, consider wearing a painter's mask to control fume inhalation.

 

I'll stick with Testors and Tamiya for my cement. I use both, depends on what I want to do.

Definitely some nice work there.

 

Those kids have something they can be proud of.

A flat tire in the middle of nowhere just after midnight, and then the jack broke.

 

Call AAA

 

The spare tire I had was too worn for the driver's liking, so I got towed to my friend's house (where I'm typing this now) and I'll have tato change it in the morning and limp it home. 

 

Making matters better- I'll need two new fronts (which I knew) in addition to inner/outer tie-rod ends on the passenger side and an alignment.

 

Yay.

Those look great, Bill

 

This really is one of the better ideas of class-time use I've seen in sometime. 

 

It teaches patience, directions, pride in your work, craftsmanship and the importance of doing a job right.
