How's the Camaro coming Scalper?

At least my cats don't do that, I don't allow them on the desk. One of my "girls" loves to sleep on top of closed boxes, though! Her favorite is my International Payhauler 500, and at least it's a strong box.


Since this thread went to the cats instead of the dogs, here's my little girl Libby on her favorite box, and sorry I said before it was a Payhauler 500, it's not, it's a Payhauler 350. Anyway, she thinks its hers! :lol:

LOL, I thought I was the only one! I have five cats, er....kids! They love to jump up on the desk while i'm building! Cats hate it when you pay attention to anything but them! I have a rotating Plastruct rack in the main model room and when I open the door, my only male, Smokey, grabs the plastic strips and takes off! I wouldn't trade em for the world though!!!!!

I have four, two boys and two girls. They all know to stay off the model desk, though. It's amazing what a squirt of water and a light slap to the rump will do! They're allowed anywhere but the counter, table and the computer and especially Daddy's model desk. They're all good kids, though, my oldest girl Shasta is about 10, she came along with my better half, and the youngest girl Libby (the one on the box), and the boys, Doc (short for Dockplate) and Noah Garfield, are all 4 1/2 years old. They are all brothers and sister, I rescued them from under a loading dockplate at a warehouse I used to work for. Libby is short for the name of the company, Doc is because we found them under the dock, and Noah is for the coworker who discovered them, even though he earned the middle name Garfield because he is a little pig like the cartoon character.
Here's the famliy:

Now, back to the regularly scheduled model build!

Thanks Guys. The Camaro I have not worked on in a bit. Just found out that my dad has Terminal Lung Cancer. Going to help him move now so he dosnt have to go up and down stairs.

But I will be starting on it this weekend. Keep my mind of things.

But I will show you My Cats.

The big Tabby she is rebel she was hit by a car and left for dead. So I rescued her I took care of her Because all of the shelters wanted to put her down. She is so strong willed and a perfect cat I fell in love with her first site. Since i knew she was not in a lot of pain. I kept her and She is the best Cat ever my big sucky. Sheis so good that she does nto go into things she shouldnt.

And the little one is Scarlet. We got her to keep Rebel busy when we are at work so she could lose weight. they are best of pals Rebel is very protective of Scarlet. If scarlet gets her tail stuck in the door jam. Watch out you will have on Rebel on protective guard.

I personally think the seats look great the way they are, but of course I've always liked the "new" look. :lol:

Also, congrats on the marriage and sorry to hear about your dad.
