This was supposed to be in "under glass" by this afternoon! While moving it to take pics, hands not being what they used to be, dropped it in the floor. Although alot can be said for the holding power of clear Gorrilla Glue!

My sympathy to you. Even though it must be annoying, like the others said - it can be fixed. It is clear that the model is nice. Just a little detour on its way to exhibition. Gonna be nice and shiny.

At least it is an easily obtainable kit and not some ebay royalty that will cost a fortune to replace.

I'm sorry that happened to you dude I do know how it feels.

In the 70' when I was a teenager I had a small collection.

One weekend when I went to a festival my brother had a party!.

When I returned on the Monday everything looked OK at first but it soon becacame apparent an accident had occured.

'parently someone had knocked the shelves over and every truck was smashed, all the pieces were carefully layed back together and the wheels were propped against each rig.

I hope she goes together again for you good as new.

Dave.

Thats good to here man,because that is a nice build.
I hate that it happened.
A cat knock a Car Hauler with 9 cars and two 1/12 scale custom choppers off a shelf.
I was ticked off and the cat did go outside however she was hit by a car two weeks after that and that realy sucked,so I know how you feel.
Its been a year or more and I just got the choppers out this pass weekend and back together.
