When I got home after I was discharged I went to go back to work on it but could not find it anywhere. Mom said she didn't know anything about it but they had cleaned all that "old junk" out of the attack. I am mad to this day. I had hours and hours in that model.
Models can be just as challenging and provide the same sense of accomplishment as a full sized car.
That's ok John. My x-sister-in-law threw out the 18x24x20 box full "old junk" that my brother had in his closet. You know the one . The one that had our collective baseball card collections starting around 1951. That one.
