I once had about six or seven of my favorite models displayed on the fireplace mantle, (back in the '80s), when my stepson's half jungle cat he brought home ran across the mantle and knocked every one of them off. I was ready to kill the cat, it went on to destroy many things in our house until, my son and the cat moved out upon which time he had her de-clawed. I have since made up with my son but. never the cat. The cat hid from me every time I went to my son's house to visit and lived to a ripe old age of 23. And I have gone on to build many more models, so don't feel alone. I do sympathise with you.
I still have the ford.. but I am working on the TZH project for a little wile. at least until I cool down on it and recollect my thoughts and rebuild steam. I usually do.. the TZH took a fall but only one thing broke on it.. I need to get one of those shock collar things put it on that cat LOL
