LOL! I had no idea Bud had the same thing happen to him. BvB, (The
Baroness von Bitchtofen), comes from a family that doesn't believe
in apologies, but 10 yrs on, she hasn't even looked hard at a model.
Not even a peep about a trailer full of giant scale warbirds and
jets. Apology gratefully accepted. I re-built some smashed models
and took a Copper State Models Sopwith Swallow kit that she broke
every resin piece and bent all the white metal and PE, built it and
won a First place in the OOB category. Though I haven't built
anything static in years, I have 2 display cases full and intact all
built ot re-built after the "disaster". <br>
So maybe BvB inspired me to continue and not give up in a back
handed sort of way, but I have always been fascinated with airplanes
and models of airplanes. I guess I was born inspired, though my
Stepfather sure fanned the flames when I was a kid.<br>
