ICB248 , Hello :
This here is the Builder of Tankers , coming to you via FSM to let you know the real reason we keep buying these things . Have you ever wondered why so many women have over forty pairs of shoes . Or More ?
Simple , they get a buzz seeing their feminine foots in the newest shoe . Of course she needs an outfit to go with them , right ?
Sounds kinda like us . Got to have that kit , Oh the paint , decals and A.M. stuff for it too ! Why ? Simple . It makes us feel good when we smell that new plastic upon opening the kit , And we also get a kick out of thinking about building it .
All that is psychological in nature . It makes us feel that life is good and we'll have the time one day to build it . How many kits? Did you say in the hundreds ? Well it's an unattainable goal , But , It's a psychological push to live longer !
Why ? well the way life has been for me I should've checked out many years back . But while in the hospitals many times and lying there in pain , I Thought " I have to build that model I pulled out of the stash" . Who Knows? I might be right . Who cares ? No one else knows how to do it so " I will show them " I'll do it right ! " That's what I think anyway .
Now that said , I have to get back to work on my client's models and then mine , Bye ! T.B.
