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.
