"Conspiracy theory's got to be simple.
Sense doesn't come into it. People are
more scared of how complicated crap
actually is than they ever are about
whatever's supposed to be behind the
conspiracy."

Quote...... Garrity fondly remembers staying up all night with friends, gluing together models two at a time, working on one while the other dried......

So that's different to now?  ;D

Very interesting article Jon, thanks for the link.  :thumbsup:

A Canadian version of why we do do, what we do:  Model citizens: hobbyists explain why putting together plastic kits is hardly kids' stuff :thumbsup:

"McRorie is ensconced in his modeling room, which houses reference materials, tools, a lathe, a half-dozen airbrushes, a collection of WWII badges and helmets and a backlog of about 60 kits."
