Our local paper did a story about model building this week. Think you might get a charge out of it.

Don't forget to check out the video, too.

Great article and vid, Terry! Thanks for passing it along.

I want some of those stink packets, too...although some would likely say I'm pretty good at making my own stink. :P

I remember seeing your truck in that "other" model magazine and being blown away, it was so much better than what my friends or
myself were building at the time.

The stink bomb was a good twist on your story. Years ago we used to get a sulfer pumace stone at work that when crushed and scrubbed
around under foot let off a horrible sulfer odor it soon became known as "fart rock", more than one devious person disrupted a crew meeting
with it. The results were always the same, sideways glances to see who let loose the horrible silent but deadly smell! To this day I can't
remember the ligitimate use for the stuff was, I think there was one.
