Bless me, Warren, for I have.....







I have a Moon Bus kit. I had one as a kid, which I put together. I have not put this new one together. I have put no models together in years. I have been busy.

I found the pre-finished one on sale, so I got it!

I feel so dirty....

You feel so dirty? What about me? The moment I saw the announcement I was drooling all over the screen.

Like you I haven't put together models in years. If we move back to Texas in the next few years (as we keep hoping to), I don't want to risk having any ruined in transit.

(Besides, I've got no place at the present to display them.)

Make sure to throw away the box. They're more valuable that way }:)

No ... glue?

THAT'S no fun ...

@Jay --- are you kidding? One reason I enjoyed assembling anime robot kits from Japan is because, nine times out of ten, Bandai (or any of the other companies) would pre-paint the pieces. PRAISE DE LAWD!

@Michael---I enjoyed building models back in the day. The only thing was the let down after I'd build the kits.

It took me a long while to figure out I was getting off on the glue fumes! Yes, I did kit building in a well ventilated place but all the same ... It was the glue!

No, I didn't quit models and "stuck" with the Testors. I quit altogether. Saved a lot of time and money that way.

Oh yes, the "Monolith" article (With your reference.) will be posted on my blog tonite. Hopefully before 2 AM.

@Jay --- if there's any response to the blog please feel free to pass it along. I'm admittedly curious.

I don't recall any after effects of using glue (maybe I enjoyed really good ventilation). Later on I switched to applying liquid cyanoacrylate (I believe it was called "Micro Weld"), using a ruling pen, getting a much neater result.

At my age I'm as normal as I'm ever gonna get, so . . .
