Lazy Blog Post - Monster / Sc-Fi Models






















I always loved models like this when I was a kid - I built several, though none survive today, due to a combination of firework mishaps, rough battles, and parental meddling.

    I had so many of these as a kid. Love the horror ones.

  3. Thanks, AI, for the flashbacks!

    I built many of those too, although none have survived. They never made plastic resistant enough for firecrackers, did they?

    I remember many 3-D games of Battleship with my cousins: we'd build aircraft carrier & ship models, put them in a creek and bomb the heck out of each other's fleets. Until I built about 10 Seaviews, gave them some weight so they floated a few feet under the water and remained untouchable. Until one cousin created depth-charges with m-80's tied to rocks!

    Oh, good times. . .

    Ciao!
