Photobucket is down. Almost 2000 photos mostly of my builds. I'll see if I can recover them. P.S. Wasp is almost done.

Hey Mardis:

Good to see you back on this one. I was able to get a good price for the old academy beehive "E". So i pillaged those parts form her before kicking rest of kit to the curb. Got way to much in the stash and as I am planning move in future...I have put ship building on a hiatus...just accumulating kits this past year. Doing some partials of tanks and airplanes to maintain sanity
