    Awesome build, and that vacuforming tutorial is great! That's a truly distinctive plane, sure to be an eye catcher!

    Guys thanks one and all, Carl if we can somehow link the mini tutorial on vacuforming to the appropriate parts to this thread, that would be good, I don't quite know how because I'm barely computer literate. Also I've seen some threads where all the pics were up when you posted instead of links, and even better, they were able to write a paragraph, have a picture then write some more all in one posting. If someone would explain in "apples and oranges" type of explanation I'd do it. Anyways, now for the next project....

    For the photo's the easist thing to do is to make a folder in the forums gallery, then upload the pictures. You will then get a link which you insert in your thread and like magic the pictures appear, I'll put one up for you.

    Ted............... Amazing work as usual! Your attention to detail and execution of the build is wonderful!

    Pray tell........... where do you keep you completed models?

    John, it is probably crazy as anything else, but the models I've built that have survived, end up on work benchs and shelves in the basement, exposed to all types of dust and stuff. As a matter of fact I was moving my GPM Seahawk and a huge cricket had taken residence in the cockpit. I shooed it away and placed the thing "higher up " on the shelves. Some are on a shelf in my study, on desks, on the kid's desks (in pieces of course), some were gifts. I thought about a neat thread or 2; one, do you still have your first paper model? and 2, do you have an island of misfit/unbuilt models?

    Well Ted............ actually my answer is YES to both questions.

    First model FG Skyray........ and Lots of 1/2 to 3/4 finished birds on my desk right now. Re-coloring does that to a person!

    Have you checked with your local library? Your pieces are too good NOT to share with the public. They might be able to put them on display, and pull names to give them away if you didn't want them back. It could be a wonderful way to introduce someone to the hobby.
