    Both my fiance and I went to Medford, Oregon to attend the Meadowlark Comicon, to meet Gil Gerard (Buck Rogers) and Felix Silla (Twiki), as well as have them autograph the Thunder Fighter (that I made for my fiance).

    Both gentlemen are very kind and good natured. It was both a pleasure and honour to have met them both.

    What an enjoyment it must have been. Autographed model is fantastic idea. Wonderful.

    Bro, I suggest to build a box for the model to protect it from dust and damage. Something like Loenf's diorama boxes would look awesome. :)

    I am looking at getting a proper display box for it, so that it does not get ruined.
