Since I probably won’t start my bash until the build off is over I thought I’d post photos of my dumb bomb model concept. I’m going to build a WW II stick and paper Japanese kamakazi Zero and put a skeleton in the cockpit with a rising Sun headband painted on him. The “bomb” is a 25 watt light bulb with a skeleton riding it and that will be attached to the underside of the Zero. The visual pun intended here is a little obscure. The bulb bomb is only 25 watts, not very bright, in fact dim. This might be culturally insensitive in today’s idea of let’s all get along but we know that’s a joke and us old timers always say who says we can’t do or say that anymore, at least all my old timer friends say that when I attempt to correct them.

Had fun! The Tonka TOBOR was such a crazy build. I've built some really cool models in the past but I thought kitbashing in steel would be a good challenge. A little side note, the winch works and is stiff enough to hold the truck up. Worked well for photos and will probably stay on my amp in this position!

Shouldn't we be voting by now?
I thought the 15th was the finale?

Let's keep the juices flowing for awhile. @GuitarlCarl , your Tonka terror is a beautiful and bad-posterior build! Really unique and deftly executed!

@us56456712 , get that 'bomb' loaded up and start your progress in here!
@KJV, keep pumpin'out those models! And @ifitsfreeitsforme , maybe put one up after the holiday dust settles?!?

I have been disappointed:
That I haven't been able to actually get into this bash, due to health issues.

sorry to hear it KJV.
Don't hold out for me fellas. I don't think my schedule will change after the holidays. But if it does, I'll let you know. I was not feeling the bits I had collected to bash with, so I'll have to do some more rummaging. Maybe I'll gank one of my son's dozens of monster trucks and bash monster running gear into that corvette kit.
