Great builds and loads of fun but not a build challenge. May I politely suggest moving this to the correct category? Maybe Other Talk...

I bought this model cement at HB. Figured to give it a try. It works great with brush on I have the yellow is thick and the blue is thin. Takes a while to really set up good. But, is less messy than the squeeze tube of testers. And also it does not have a toxic smell. Not saying I won't still be using testers completely..
Anyway, its worth getting Mr Cememt .

No toxic smell?? That’s the best part! Haha

I am finally bored enough of tv and YouTube and got back to modeling.

I designed and 3D printed some bicycles at work. I’m going to scratch build a roof rack for this Fiat 500

And I painted and wheel-swapped this Soob. It was yellow. Soobs should be blue n gold.

Man I like Novas a lot. I had a 74 hatchback when I was 20 (38 years ago).

I’m going to build this 1/43 scale vette next

Holy smokes, the ‘vette might actually get built.

Duplicolor Ford color. Blasphemy!

I made this for my son tonight. Everything is from our Cape trip last June. Even the sail and the water are from the envelopes of the Fathers Day cards they gave me there.

Wow. I actually finished something. Even if it is only a snap fit.

I have not built a plastic model kit since 1965 when I switched to balsawood airplanes. All of those things have been gone since I went to college. Broken or given away to other kids

But for some reason one of my grandchildren gave me this Star Trek model kit, that includes two different versions of the Enterprise.

I might end up bashing them together and building a spaceship with six engines on it or something.

But this is one of those things that will only happen if bad weather or arthritis prevents me from doing any heavy work.

Or if I just decide that I need a break from whatever is not going well and just want to sit in the office.

I’m buying these tomorrow. Found them on CL. I think $20 for the pair is quite fair. I’ve never built a metal body kit before.
