I still have some  hot wheels cars from when I was a kid, so they will be  over 40 years old.

I have a few of them I keep, but mostly I buy them to hand out at Halloween, instead of candy.
I try to learn from the mistakes of others who take my advice.

Tophe...you sly devil, all this time you've had a second job! Working for Matchbox!
As soon as I saw this toy I thought.."That's one of Tophe's"Am I right.......or, am I wrong?
Today I am making "for Matchbox" a derivative, but loosing the twin-boom layout is a shame :-\ ;D

And a twin-boom symmetric derivative to complete the family, but the best was the source: twin-boom AND asymmetric... ;D

Wasn't the original asymmetric one of them a Burt Rutan design? It looks familiar somehow.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

This is a hybrid with the fuselage, a butchered Hawker Sea Fury, and the wings in balsa. I know, the wings look too long, but it's the way it was designed. This is a Boeing F8B and flew post war.
Scale : 1/48 and nowhere near finished.

Sorry about the delay.......been ill.

Exactly, it's impossible for wings to be TOO long!  ;D
