I hope that all of you had a happy Thanksgiving Holiday! As I lay here on the floor writing this up, I am trying to remember what I did the last four days while I was off. I haven't been feeling up to snuff, since Friday. Some kind of tummy issue, but this will pass. So what did I do, let me think back, in no particular order.

It had been on my list to fix for a while so I picked up some brake fluid and a funnel with a long spout. It is located under the front seat and is a little tough to get to.

Reissued by Revell/Monogram, this was an easy to build kit--not a lot of parts--and fun! I wanted something simple looking and clean, so, no decals, no not-to-scale dump pipes (I stole other pipes from my parts bin) and some very quick trim installation.
I wouldn't say scale building is getting easier, but I do find myself doing the same sort of things over and over--all clear coat is now 2 part polyurethane; every build to date gets a round of bare metal foil, and so on…
