I'm forty-six years old in October and I'm still building plastic model kits. I don't know if this is a sign of creeping dementia or an indication I've never really grown up.
I especially love any kit associated with old TV shows or the space age. I own everything from an Area 51 alien space craft to a German zeppelin (can't wait to put those babies together).
But as one final gesture to the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing this past July, over the weekend I put together a cheap plastic Heller model kit of the lunar lander. Nothing fancy...but I did some creative things with it.
Didn't do too bad for a guy with shaky arthritic fingers and the patience of a meth freak.
Here's a picture and there are three or four more over on my blog.
Ah, the good old days...
