    I said the same thing. And this stuff was deadly. It was cleverly disguised as food.

    We had to eat every bite of our TV dinner because children were starving in Europe.

    That would be coarse language. (Man, once this stuff gets started, it's hard to stop¬† .ūüėú)

    I had to defeat autocorrect to misspell "a lot" as "alot."  Alittle humor there.

    Here's a cliche that's been around but is picking up fast: New albums/singles/videos are no longer being released, they're being "dropped."

    I was reviewing this thread to see if anyone had nominated this one.

    I started with the utter simplicity of the Gowland and Gowland Highway Pioneers line of antique cars, and horse-drawn vehicle kits like a stage coach or chariot when my skills got better. Everything was brush-painted. They were later sold by Revell and now some are Minicraft. Plenty available on eBay.

    So this is what my dentist does with his money.

    I'm a little confused by the louvers on the kit nose as shown on the box (part 49 on the sprues shown above) because I can't find them on a real version. Anyway, there should be some good reference at these exhaustive links (click to enlarge all photos):

    Smer/Merit builders I have seen got their wire wheels from Herb Deeks on eBay.

    Does the Heller kit have the same issue of a seam along the rocker panels as all the other E-Type kits?

    Your Mercedes image doesn't open for me. What's a kick up?
