My problem right now is I'm retired and living on a fix income which isn't very mush and I have outstanding medical medicines that I can early cover. I'm moving and will be living with my son and his wife which helps a lot. That is why I asked. I don't like putting my laundry out for others to see but that's my lot. Modeling is a very inexpensive hobby once to buy the tools and etc. needed and it helps me to keep my mind(such as it is at 71) of something other things like migraines'. I'm always looking for free models because it is all I can afford. Thank you for offering this beautiful model which I am looking very forward to. Many thanks. wc

I can't wait to retire. I am hoping to do it much much earlier than average.

I could easily enjoy my days spending time at the local military museum, designing models, building, reading, cooking, and hiking.

If you make it 13.4" you'll end up with a 1/48 scale model.

Thales, it doesn't matter what your going to be doing just have a exit plan. I've seen the damage it can do to a person when they don't have a exit plan. Very sad. Sounds like you got a good one. wc

Oh, I have plenty of stuff I want to do... but going to the office is not part of it. There are plenty of projects I want to work on and things I'd like to study... I just don't have the time or mental energy while working.

But I am making more progress on the shuttle. I hope people like laminating parts, because there are a zillion raised or recessed panels on this thing.

Beautiful.

And it looks as if there's a decal on each panel.

I hope the rpf links were of some benefit. -J

Yes, definitely. I already spied some errors on my part on this 2nd attempt... but I am moving forward.

There is going to be a lot of layering to add depth to the panels.

BTW, the models from Alien and Aliens are not the same. They differ in certain aspects. I'm looking forward to seeing your updates.
Dude, it's just a dream that comes true... Just can't remember how many years I'm looking for Narcissus model. Hope is hard to kill.
