Oh, sure! You are one of *those* people who actually PAINTS their rockets...

... and applies the decals !!

OK, master modeler, go try to build some that look every bit as good with just coats of white or gray primer!





You know, sometimes I forget how good rockets can look when they are all dressed up. Nice job!

Most of mine are wearing the paint equivalent of boxers and wife beaters... They are dressed too casually to leave the house (or to have their pictures posted on the forum.)

Yeah, but that's almost overdressed to go to WalMart!

Ya'll do realize that all those pics except the last one were posted three years ago, right?

True. None of them are wearing thongs or are flashing tramp stamps.

It's a good thing too. I don't want to remember it when bladder control goes.
