    Kudos to you for being willing to take the time to work with your nephew. Autistic children are a handful. I know from personal experience. They still need the love and attention that all children need. The challenge is dealing with their issues, because no two autistic children are the same. ( I probably don't need to tell you any of this.) It's very easy to let it be someone elses problem. Working with any child, teaching them to build models can be a challenge. You are to be commended for taking the time and effort to work with children with special needs. My hats off to you and to his parents. You both go above and beyond.

    I was suprised that he was interested, because his dad wasn't. It probably won't take long before he's beating me at the local contests

    his first model
    My grandson i s three, and has been bugging me to show him how to put a "car" togeather. So I bought a snap togeather camaro,and we spent about an hour putting it togeather today. He even put some of the parts togeather, with a little help of course.This was probably more fun for me than him, but does indicate that there may be hope for the future of our hobby. As long as he's interested we'll continue to do more togeather. besides it's great to be able to spend quality time with the grandkids.

    He thinks it's a " really really really cool car, and the bestest I've ever seen." :D

    You've got to entertain those with more money than common sense somehow. :rolleyes:

    Run with it man! You have a unique and creative idea, we would love to see how this looks in your minds eye. The only way we'll find that out is for you to finish it.

    I biult this kit when it was first rereleased. Watch the fit on the doors. I had alot of problems with them closing properly. I never did get them to work right. Almost glued them shut. I've thought about getting another one, just to try to conquer this problem. The last one was already painted before I discovered the fit problem. Hopefully by addressing it before paint will make it easier to fix. I will be watching to see how your comes out.
  13. runsw/scissors added a post in a topic Motivation   

    I hadn't finished anything in almost two years. I was laid up due to surgery, and couldn't get to my room in the basement. So my wife brought up a Polar Lights Batmobile that my son bought me years ago. Finished it in a week. Didn't paint the body, just polished the plastic, now I'm working on two other stalled projects that should be done around the first of the year. Best thing I could have done to get me motivated was to just do a quick build straight out of the box. Even if its just a snap kit, put something togeather thats easy and quick every once in a while. It'll keep the juices flowing. That's what i intend to do from now on. We have to keep it fun, thats the point, right?
  14. runsw/scissors added a post in a topic What else do you collect   

    I used to collect Hot Wheels, Matchbox and the like, Too much money, and too little space. Now all I collect is dealer advertising plates.

    Cranky, you build faster than I can read.

    This is a great project. Looking forward to seeing this one through to the end.
