I know my son gets excited when he gets models. He's built a few, and this summer we tackled Revell's 1/72 Blue Angels F-18 Snap-Tite. Pretty good for a 7 year old. I also have a small class of kids building models at school, and they seem like they're pretty into it, maybe for the novelty if nothing else. But a lot of kids do crave that instant gratification.

On my bench: AMT X-Wing (1/48ish?) rebuild

At least those kid's were using "Some" motor skills..... ( the 5 seconds it took to put the head's back in place .)

I must confess..... I have spent many......MANY hours battling "Space Invaders"

Or the occasional rouge "Asteroid".........

Don't know, I'm still seeing the strips. Anyone else having the same problem? Check out the comic strip Baby Blues for this week if you can't.
