    Great thread TWE. Some superb models have been posted. Here's my most recent build.

    It's the old MQ3A-Murphy mech under attack. I purchased these from ebblesminiatures.com--unfortunately the mech is no longer available.

    Yes it IS an awesome thread!
    Thank you guys for keeping it alive.
    I have been busy fighting CPU glitches, viruses, and nasty little demons, plus writing my Book and illustrating it. This is why I haven't thanked you guys individually lately. But I'm still here, I still Love you, and I am reworking the webpage for this challenge. Keep this alive and we will have an awesome gallery to look at after the end.
    Got to get back to work now...

    I have tried 5 times to up load some pictures. Lets see if I got right this time.
    I hope you guys don't mind but I am posting some pic of planes I built with my grand kids, trying to get them interested.
    Hope this works.

    dinsour............... make sure it falls inside the limits for the file type............. also re-scale it to as close to 640x480 as possible to keep it within the limits of the thread screen.

    Also one picture per post will show it.............more will show links...

    The mold for canopy will be changed. I was so anxious to see it finished so I fit a prototype.

    Inspired by Ron Kemp's Hot Rods I decided to use my membership in a GM W-Body club to create W-Body paper models since there are very little model cars of W-Bodies (Cutlass Supreme, Gran Prix, Lumina, Regal, Monte Carlo, Impala).

    So as far as I know. This is the only one ever made. Printed on 90lb gloss stock. Built in a day.

    The girls wre 12 or so when these were done. the boy was 10. That's the main reason I went with the wheaties planes then stepped up to FG.

    They could build one in a couple of hours and wouldn't loose interest.

    But then the biggest kid in the room was me. I'm 72 and still trying new stuff and keeping up with the old LOL.
    I built the wheaties planes during WW2 and had a ball. wanted to pass it on
