I'd request to see the mini.  A build I started will need stripes on its body.  Would like to see how someone else does it.

Tough choice.

I'd probably build the Leopard.

That's funny,I kinda felt the same way,just didn't want to say it.

How in the world do I know what you want to build ? Why does it matter what I think ?

Seriously,enjoy your build whatever it is,I will no doubt follow along.

Sheep,I do enjoy your candor and outlook on things.

The BV, since I have one in the stash. Interested in seeing a WIP thread on it.

Das Beav, I got mine at the Dayton show a couple of years ago.

I am just trying to find out if Drums is the one who "sniped" me on Ebay 6 months ago,lol. 1/72 is not my scale but I really like sea/float planes.

Are you an IMPS Rickenbacker member? Been meaning to go down to a meeting to see what's up.

The mini would be fun, but the R380 would be cool too.

If your wanting to get yourself out of the funk, maybe an easy build would be the best prescription. My vote would go to the Morris Mini.

DasBeav, sorry but I had this for several years. I won it at the annual Rickenbacker IPMS meet I believe 7 years ago.

And I was a member of the Eddy Rickenbacker IPMS group but not for years. I live over an houhr away and I just cant seem to get to the monthly meetings; ... nice chapter though.

Yeah, I'm a member of IPMS Rickenbacher. Normally meetings are the second Sunday of the month at 3pm at the Westerville Library. This month's meeting is on the 26th. Yes, it's Memorial Day weekend. They bumped the meeting from Mother's day and it wound up on the 26th. We'd love to have you and anyone else in the area to come. Our next Build-a-thon is in July. The 13th I think. It will be in Plain City.

 

Sorry for the short hijack of the thread.

Hey, Ben

Did you make it to this year's show? It was a great show. If you missed it, hope to see you next year.

Thank you for the compliment about our chapter.

Sorry again.
