So, after not being around here for over a year, I poke my head in and find out it's been ten(10) !!! years since we started this?
Someone suggested celebrating the ten year anniversary by posting the old post from ten years ago.....
This was my very first post in the "Airfix forum":

I was house sitting my girlfriends house for a few days while she was away on business. I'm not much for TV so I desided to build a model. She had black, white and blue acrylic paint only. A nasty paintbrush like one gets in a cheap water color set and some Zap super glue I had stashed a few months ago. I found this kit for $ 4.00 in a crushed moldy box at Dave's Hobby Shop near Oceanside, LI. Decals seemed to have survived so home I went. Was assembled and painted in about 3 hours. A sparkling kitchen floor and a familer smell told me a bottle of Future was around somewhere. A coat of that, some very hot water and thinned Elmers glue got the decals to stay flat.
Everything was done with just what I had on hand, like we used to build models before we all had to have airbrushes and 200 different colors.
Or, ... like when we were seven..."
So I have no shots from the old shoot but the model is still in the display case, here re-shot with my smart phone.....
