I spent today out of the office doing some "real" work up the coast, which meant of course that on the way home I was forced to stop at a hobby store I normally can never get to. Even as I stepped through the front door my eyes fell upon this wonderful beauty I had desired for many a year. There it sat on the shelf, next to my wife's favourite word. SALE.
So I casually walked up to it. Picked it up. Checked out the price. Walked to the counter and put it down saying - "I'll be back for this in a minute". Obviously I couldn't risk someone walking into the shop and purchasing it while I was looking around.
After a brief look around - where I looked at a couple of other nice things which would have been nice, I decided that buying anything else (apart from some paint of course) could only be classified as being greedy.
So I made my purchase and left the store with this:
Now I'm pretty sure I'll only ever need one of these. (Famous last words...) I'm also pretty sure you could only ever fit one on a table! Right now I'm leaning to making it as a landed version rather than a flying version - but I'll have to think on that further...
This will be a total committment build - so I'll be trying to do a fully painted interior - proper windows (rather than my standard painted over windows) and basically as tizzied up as I can make it.
It won't be built over night - but it will happen!
On with the show
