Hi Steve, I think a wingy thing built OOB would be on target, perhaps a tank buster of some discription

A-10 Thunderbolt

Hey BARV

When was the last time you did a model straight OOB? I get the impression you see a basic kit and can never resist putting your own magic touch on it!

OOB I think stands for thinkink out of the box as far as you are conserned. Could your brain switch off from tweaking the hell out of every last mm of plastic?

How would you react to the suggestion of Sci Fi. I know I would be sick as a parot if any of my friends or relatives even thought of buying me a kit of something sci fi. It just doesn't float my boat.

Would love to see what you finally do!

All the very best

He's off again!

18 months building done in 18 days!

No wonder "The Dragon" is desperate to visit me for peace and stability in her life!
