Our club has an annual White Elephant gift exchange during the holidays. Most guys end up with something WAY out of their area of intrest so not alotta work goes into them typically. I was the "proud" recipient of the MPC 1/20 scale McLaren Mk8d. Well, not on the top of my list to have , and I don't have anything in that scale, so here are the results.

A 1/25 scale 70's era Hydro! It sports an opening cockpit and engine deck lid.

Steamboy,
That is just too cool for words! I love Can-Am stuff and have built that kit so I can recognize the amount of work that went into a piece such as this. Great find!
:D

Ahhhh.... Now, could you please post your full name, first and last, in the signature box found in the profile section of this board? That is one of the few rules here at MCM forums.
Thanks! 8)

Okay, it's just tooooo early in the morning for something like that!! :shock:

Seems like "creative" or "imaginative" doesn't quite cut it. "Amazing" gets a little closer...
