One model that will be built will be the 1/12 scale Model A my wife gave me 3-4 years ago - and hope it turns out looking like my '31.

Those of Jays - he pictured some a few years ago somewhere - beyond my imagination and skills!!!

Yep, I have a number of boxes of them, some of them classics from the seventies that would be worth a few bucks if I hadn't partially built them. When the model came out of my truck (I would have eaten a live rat for one when I was a kid) I bought five or six of them and they are in storage.
