WTF - what I think when I see most of 2018 model year cars. 

OMG - when I see what people are charging for the now super rare, impossible to replace Revell kits...

DWIG - Damnit! Where'd It Go?!

Usually happens right at the end of a successful build sequence, when you drop a piece that is crucial to the entire project, and it hits the ground normally but then does that *crazy bounce that sends it skipping off to the most unlikely place you'd ever look.

* this acronym is NOT reserved for scale modeling alone...in fact, the effect is directly proportionate to both the size and price of the dropped component in all projects. 

[EDIT] I just saw that Jantrix beat me to the cleverness...I'm still going to hold out that my shorter acronym is more efficient, though, and carries the same emotional weight. :D

Question - can someone tell me what the "pau" means in the Under Glass heading? I've been wracking my brain every time I go there.
