I was at a model show today that Spokes told me about. How did he know about a model show at a grade school that is only two miles from my house, but I did not--when he is hundreds of miles and several states away? I do not know, but he did. It is a very small show, just getting started I figure, and the model contest was almost not even there, but they had about a dozen or two people selling stuff, and some of that stuff was at decent prices, so I bought some of the cheaper stuff at $10-$15. They also had hot dogs at $1.50 each, so all was not lost. But anyway, one of those models I bought was like this one right here (a picture of which I snatched from the interweb):
So I am going to build this, while waiting for the urge for the other stuff I already started to kick back in. I was actually looking for a station wagon model for some odd reason, but found none.

There is nothing extremely messed up about this kit. The axles are too long so the tires stick out too far and the body sits comically high off the tires, so I will fix that. I will grind away the too thick plastic around the wheel wells, fix a couple sink marks in the trunk, and file off the hood pin thingies because they look stupid, but other than that, this is about ready to paint.
Things are still happening on this model, just not quickly. The roll cage is together, and some of the engine is together. The main thing now is to make the door and trunk lines more visible. They are so shallow that it appears a light coat of paint will fill them. I am in the process of making those lines deeper with some knife work.

kingsnova: Hello all, I just bought a used 26" Mongoose Beast fat tire at a garage sale $140.00. Good deal till the rear bearings were loose and broke the axle. Anyone know how I can get parts to fix it?
