I bought the rally SL maybe a year ago off ebay and I too paid very little for it (IIRC under $10). Not a high demand for them so if you want one, your best and most economical bet would be to watch the auctions.
This is my favorite. Worthless for heavy use, not a lot of torque, but I use it constantly for modeling. At $8.99 you get a lot, and when it craps out after a few years then replacing it is still cheaper than two cans of spray paint.
As cool as it will look in your home, it's kind of a shame to let so much work just hang so all you see is grey and props. One of the reasons I drifted away from planes, too much goes unseen, yet I can't not detail them. But the B-17 is such a handsome plane and I'm sure a lot of us wish we had yours hanging in our homes. Nice work.
Sure glad you're getting a handle on the whole back thing, Gregg. Sounds miserable. I particularly want to thank you for the update. It's a rare thing that a magazine is so transparent about what's going on. It proves you're one of the guys and not just some stiff with a corner office and a column. Frankly, I couldn't care less what issue is in my mailbox, I don't keep a calendar of those things. I just enjoy reading the mag and participating in this online gathering of grown up kids. Glad to hear everything's only going to get better. Have a great year my friend.
Back in '88 while on vacation, Industrial Light and Magic hosted public exhibition at the San Rafael Civic Center of all their coolest movie props; tons of film used Star Wars models, gouls, costumes, almost everything they'd done for every blockbuster movie. On the way out was one of Francis Ford-Coppela's Tuckers to promote his new movie. I was thrilled, had never seen one before and couldn't wait for the film. In the movie, all those gorgeous Tuckers lining up outside the courthouse. If I recall, that was the most Tuckers brought together in one place since they left the factory. How come that's not on the list of greatest car movies of all time?
