Testors Weird-ohs "Hodad Making The Scene"
"Lookin' good is OK, but can he ride the tall wave? All the chatter comes easy, but the surf's for the brave", or so the box art says...
Our 13 year old grand daughter, Kim, is visiting from Texas. With a model club meeting coming up, my wife Carol asked her if she'd like to give model building a try. The two of them went at it steadily for a few days, with Kim doing most the heavy lifting, while Carol supervised. They were about 90% done before they asked my opinion. I managed to stretch their work a little further, teaching Kim about drybrushing, etc. She picked it up quickly, leaving me to watch. I really think the two of them enjoyed the experience, and I, along with our other club members, really appreciated the result. A fine job for a "first timer". Too bad her stay is almost over, but there are more "Weird ohs" in the stash, and even an aircraft or two, for her next visit.
