Absolutely not!  :wacko:  In other news..........My main computer at home is fried. :( Had to order a new computer days ago, and it won't arrive for at least another week. So don't expect me to be on this site much or posting modeling pics. Won't be able to "get back to normal" posting for at least another two weeks yet. Otherwise, I've been spending lots of quiet time at home building plenty of model kits for future contests. I'm now currently working on 3 different versions of the fictional Aurora hypersonic secret aircraft for a future diorama display.

Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.

Finally got a new computer (With Windows 10) and have been hooking everything up, testing it, etc., etc.   With a bit of luck, I should be able to post some photos soon here in a day or two of my current model builds.  :thumbsup:

Chilly tonight (and tomorrow) with temps dipping into the low 30's. Frost warning too.  :blink: So it'll be a good evening tonight and also Saturday to stay home, keep warm, and work on some model kits. And I've got plenty too! Got 2 model contests to prepare for on Oct. 31st and Nov. 7th, then have my monthly model club meeting on Nov. 14th. I'm gonna be busy, busy, busy the next 3-4 weeks.  :blink:

Almost finished with this:
http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,41251.0.html

So what's next on my "To Do" list?  MiG's, of course. Lots of small 1/144 scale MiGs for another "special project".  ;D Well, except for the MiG-17 which will be 1/72 scale cause I can't find one in 1/144.  :banghead:
I've got:
MiG-15
MiG-17
MiG-21
MiG-23
MiG-25
MiG-29
Su-22
Su-27

Thanks, guys!  :thumbsup:  All the displays are going to another contest in about 6 days from now. Wonder if I'll score again? Competition will be tougher though.

Congratulations.

And luck for the next one.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
