I thought you brought two kits.  What was the Russian ot looking beauty
siting in the Aircraft section??  Was that not a Kendix assemblage as well??

You should have seen this thing.  Built OOB and all rigged nicely with 
invisble thread, I think.  A tribute to Greg's tutelage (he only helped with

advice) and his daughters' patience and skill.  It was actually a joint 
product with the older daughter (12) doing the assembly and the younger 
doing the paint job (about 10?).


Enjoy the holiday season with great tips from MSN.
