The Zilla Has Landed !!!!!!!!!!
I have just returned from a Holiday Vacay, and I couldn't be in a better place mentally than I have been in years. It was a Wonder Full week with my daughter and her incredible husband, not to mention, The GrandBratz !!!!!!! Aaaaaaaahh !!! Run Away. Run Very Far Away. I love 'em all to bitz.
I'll need a day of rest and reorganization that may involve some football and mind altering substances.
BTW, I got another Junior Modeler Styrene Addict hooked. My youngest GrandBrat, Ricky, first built a PL Ohio George 33 Willys snap kit a year ago that I had sent him for a birthday. He did a great job for a first model and he proudly showed it to me when I arrived. It only needed minor corrections, but we decided to disassemble it and paint it. We got a 3 day modeling & bonding session in that I will remember for the rest of my life.
During a paint and supply run to Michael's, I told him to pick the model of his choice, maintaining a snap kit, and he chose a Revell Enzo Ferrari. Then he really blew me away. He plays one of those XBox car chase games and he showed me he wanted a spoiler on it. I told him to go through the parts to see if anything resembled a spoiler. There is a piece that has 2 side scoops connected to a piece that snaps onto the chassis that would be perfect. I had him shave the snap pins so the part wouldn't stay in. Then tape it in place. Next, scribe where the scoops will be, then cut them from the connector and glue them in place. Then 2 corner sprue pieces will be the mounts to be drilled into the trunk.
He doesn't think outside the box. He doesn't believe the box exists.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas, Hanukkah, Holiday of Your Choice and WATCH OUT NEW YEAR !!!!!!! HERE I COME !!!!
