    I'd like to get one of those too. It's just too outrageous to pass up.

    Over the years, I managed to recollect what I had as a kid. On that list was this one....

    MORE SPOILER ALERT.
    Hey Mr Snake,
    We are also wondering about the chains AND how they got them around the dragon's neck because walkers "Can't swim".
    And......
    Remember Stark Uncle who came to Bran's rescue?.... Why couldn't he go on the other side of the wall... because of the magic in the wall that kept him there, yet the crew of seven were able to take a "living" walker on the other side of the wall to show Cercie. Sup' wit dat?

    Our last son living at home is on his way this weekend. The wife is struggling. I will miss him  sooo much, but I know he is headed for a greatest time of his life.

    I was in Davis CA last weekend and a Giant Chevy powered Radio Flyer drove by. It had a giant handle and every thing. Could not get my phone out in time.

    My first wife not so much. We will leave it at that. After that, I made sure I was sure of what I liked in life and did not worry about other people's opinions. 
    My second wife is on board 100%. She never complained about the time I spent working on models. I have a garage full of unbuilt models that she is totally fine with. I'e built models with all three of my sons. They would do the work while I guided them.
    The best part was for my birthday a few years back she took me to the GSL. She was in the room looking at the models and talking to people. We had a great time.
    This year she took me the the NHRA drags in Ohio. Another really good time. 
    One thing we did this year was allow each other a play fund for what ever we wanted. Just like when I was 10 years old, I blew mine (and then some) on E-bay pretty fast. I had no idea how much I spent until it was time for some accounting. I ate some humble pie. Now I'm playing catch up to build up my fund. It's a bummer when I see a good deal on e-bay and have to let it go, but it is a balance between family, house, and fun.
    Oh, she picked out one of my models that she wants me to build in real life.... if we ever get the money.

    I spotted these in Mansfield OH while doing the Shawshank trail tour. (The prison is really fun to see.)

    This was around the corner from the other cars. The front looks pretty neat.

    It always amazes me how precise your work is. Thanks for the update!

    I picked up a couple things recently. The Stude is mostly for the Mr. Speed decals and the body. I want to recreate the rear engine funny car version. I actually had one, but let myself get talked into selling it. Jerry Amaral got it and made an awesome bullet nose version of the rear engine Stude as part of a drag team. I wish I had pictures because it is one of my favorites. 
    The Beretta decals are because I always liked the box art of the original issue of the pro street Beretta, but the kits have pretty much disappeared. I'll get a reissue and use the old decals.
    The last pic is a reminder of days gone bye bye.

    1.30 marked down from 2.00. Just enough allowance money to make it.

    Those are really good for 11. I've been checking out all your stuff. It's great. A real trip down memory lane. All of them excellent and very clean builds.
    I still have my Thames panel from when I was a kid, but it been through a few versions. The rest of the missing childhood kits got replaced from e-bay like you and John. Although now, with the amount of reissues, I am waiting on some of the more pricey ones.

    Simply amazing. I followed the build on this. The finished product is incredible.

    Looks great so far. I built this one as a kid.
    I'll be watching.
