    Thanks!

    I'm told it should be appearing in the Scale Talk section in either the March or April issue according to an editor at Fine Scale Modeler...

    Supposedly the March 2018 issue is available at least to subscribers. If anyone has seen the Scale Talk section of this issue, Soda Can Model R2 is most definitely featured in the Scale Talk section:

    Thanks Rhaven!

    Now things are getting even more interesting. There seems to be some interest coming from the powers that be within the Star Wars Universe. I have been conversing with a contributing writer over at Star Wars Insider Magazine and it appears an article there may be on the horizon...

    I look forward to seeing the article.
    I guess I am going to have to get copies of these magazines. If ever you are in the Salem, Oregon area, could I have your autograph???

    LOL! Even if it does make it in there, I'll still be a humble, crazy old man who loves to play with cans! :)

    There is nothing wrong with that. I am a crazy old man that likes to play with paper and plastic. So join the club, kick back, relax and enjoy the fun!

    You never too old to stop playing with cans!!! Wait, what we talking about here? Actually, that would make a nice model, not B.E.'s cans, the Bottle!! :)

    Thank You gentlemen! Well Time to get back to the grind after letting this one soak in for a bit! I've got to test the theory of cans sans logos and paint!

    Check the other active thread! I'm actually going to start less complicated and attempt a P-51 Mustang to see how the cans react. If the properties are not altered in anyway, then the possibilities are wide open
