    You're doing a great job on this gasser! I'm joining the peanut gallery to watch this get built.

    What can I say that hasn't already been said? Truly sorry to hear this. This is a great place to feel like family, and we are all concerned. I think you should let your family know what's going on. Hang in there brother!

    So sorry for your loss Ray. Prayers for you and family.
  6. wayne swayze added a post in a topic Shipping a completed model?   

    I shipped a model to a contest years ago, and when I received it back, it was in perfect condition! I was instructed to first wrap toilet tissue around the model from side to side, then from front to back ( both numerous times). Then place the model into a suitable sized box surrounded by "peanuts" . Then pack THAT box into a larger box surrounded by more "peanuts". Secure the openings of the box with lots of tape and address the outer box (with the return address), and mark it fragile on ALL sides. I sent it using Fed Ex or Purulator rather than using the postal service. Maybe I was one of the lucky ones that the model was not damaged. Not only did it cross the border (customs), but the person(s) at the contest site handled it with the utmost care and repacked it as I had done. No damage! Shout out to Mark Gustavson and his volunteers in 1991!!

    Yeah, I'm bummed out. I wanted to enter it into a contest, but enough damage to it has made me withdraw my plan. I'm putting it back together, but I think it'll go into the display case and not to the contest.

    Pure bad luck ! About to photograph the car in different lighting, when I dropped it on the floor! Frustrating for sure! But I'll try to get it back together soon.

    Just heard yesterday that a friend of mine ( who lives many miles away ) recently got engaged.  He's close to my age, so there may still be hope! Cheers to him!

    Good looking wagon Jim! I also like the green you picked. Almost bought this kit earlier today.
