    I've got a few kits I've been meaning to work on. One is a B-29 and the other is a Corsair. Maybe one of these days when I'm not busy with work or the grand kids.

    I'll try. Just have multiple things I'm working on. I've had the kits for months if not years. Been meaning to set up a work table in the spare room (only one kid out of 4 left at home) and work on these. Back in my preteen years I assembled all kinds of models. Had a fleet with two carriers (Enterprise and Nimitz), two battleships (Bismark and Arizona) and various auxillary ships. Must have had 30+ car models at one point. All displayed on shelves in my room.

    I don't expect anything guy from anyone.... the only person I "expect" anything from.. is ME! I just post, the builds and all that wacky detail to get some enthusiasm for others and possibly maybe some inspiration too!

    The detail you see on my kits, not only is done for contests, but I also enjoy the mere work that it takes to accomplish!

    Cool. My boy and I are going to start the Rammunition model soon. But, like I said, he is only 3. I will take pics and write about the fun, but I am sure there will be some frustration reminding him to be careful lol.
    I miss modeling, and seeing your awesomeness has made me interested again, and seeing others do it just might make it a hobby again.
    Thanks for sharing Fast eddie, and keep up the awesomeness 528 hemi
