Best End of the Year Gift Ever
In a 30+ year teaching career (and still going in this crazy 2020) I spent 17 of them in 6th grade. At the end of the year many students will often give a token of appreciation such as gift cards, mugs, and such to their teachers. About 18 years ago I received the best end of the year gift ever: the 1/48 Tamiya Fairey Swordfish! Talk about being astonished! After such a gift I felt compelled to get the photo-etch set in order to do justice to the kit.
This one still holds a place of pride in my collection.
