    I think it may be less than 10 years with the way things are progressing. Very soon, buying an actual kit will be like buying a CD or DVD - something that "old" people do!

    I like his videos, Harry. He's a good showman!

    Most dumps in the US will also take your old CRT TV and dispose of it for free.

    Christian, at 48, I'm old enough to remember ordering things via stamps and envelopes or by phone calls. The beauty of our lives now is that there is so much out there and it's so much more accessible. That's not a bad thing!

    Very cool. I love the Stratos rally cars.

    Tom, I never thought I'd get caught up in the big TV craze but I want an even bigger one for the family room now. The 24 inch is perfect for the shop. I'm right next to it so it doesn't need to be huge!

    The continued benefits of technology...
    A few years back, I removed the old 19 inch TV from my shop because it was too big and got in the way. I got used to working in there with just music playing, but I missed the distraction. Lately, I've been enjoying all of the modeling related YouTube videos and started thinking how nice it would be to be able to watch videos that were relevant to specific things that I'm working on. I already had a Chromecast that I wasn't really using, so I started looking for a small TV that could fit on the wall and be out of the way. Costco has a 24 inch Samsung flat screen on sale for $170 and even better, it comes with a wall mount included. Now I can watch some lunatic like Dr. Cranky as he delivers his pearls of wisdom and I don't have to work around a gigantic plastic and glass monolith!

    Charlie, your builds are awesome and need to be shared with everyone. This forum has a great group of modelers and they are going to love your stuff! I'm happy that I was able to motivate you to post!

    I just ordered another one of these from Amazon... At some point, I'm doing this again, but with the benefit of knowing what to watch out for!

    Found the AMT Peterbilt California Hauler 359 mismarked at $24.99 today (at Hobby Lobby in Milford, CT). Got it for $15 with a coupon!
