    Thank you all so much. This is a great forum. I don't really know any of you but I feel like you are friends.  Thanks again.

    A little more work done. More still needs to be done as you can see.

    Ok the rods will stay on. Perhaps now that I know I can see a show on Youtube I will take a peek. Here are some pics of the kit parts.

    Thanks you very much guys. I'm doing a little building and messing around on the computer to keep my mind off things. Doesn't work too well.

    Lost a sister yesterday
    I have two sisters both older than me. The older of the 2 was 71. About 2 years ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She fought that and won and she was cancer free. About 3 months ago she found the cancer had returned. She was doing the chemo treatments but about 3 weeks ago became very ill. She was admitted to the hospital where they discovered she had brain cancer. She was in the hospital for a little less than 2 weeks before we were told she had about 10 days to live and they could do no more for her. My BIL opted to have her come home and do the home hospice thing. For the last almost week and a half of her life we could not communicate with her and she was not eating or drinking. She passed away peacefully yesterday about 1 in the afternoon. Her name was Carole and I will miss her.

    I guess I have been lucky. I have shipped several models without damage. For 1/25 and 1/24 scale I use a USPS priorty box that is sometimes called the shoe box. First i put some peanuts in and then the model double wrapped withe bubble wrap. Then more shipping peanuts around the model and on the end. I always ship priority because I figure the quicker it gets where it's going the better off it is. I have shipped 8 models in the last 3 weeks with no report of damage.

    I think it would look better without those rods coming out the back. Since it is a fantasy vehicle I may omit them when I do the build.

    You know much more about this thing than me. The box does  show 3 different paint treatments. Looks like red, OD and silver.

    Just posted this in the Got Today section but I feel it fits well here also. I never saw it before.

    Got this "thing " in the mail from Japan yesterday. It took almost 7 weeks to get here and I had forgotten about it. I believe it is based on some Japanese cartoon. It was interesting to me because I thought it had a Steampunk, 30's race car, 30's airplane vibe to it. I will build it when I feel like building something different.
