Well , now that took the cake ! I must say that I never thought anyone had done what I did through three daughters and one son . MATTHEW , my hat is off to you . My children were the cause of folks who were allowed in the shop to ask , "what do you detail with squiggley noodles and toothpicks ?" My son was always thinking he could out-spaceship the guys who did models for STAR TREK and BATTLESTAR GALACTICA tv shows . He was very inventive and my girls are the ones who TAUGHT ME to use invisible sewing thread for rigging my 1/350 ships!! Did you ever see an ocean liner in "PINK" with a smiley face on the sides?? That,s what my girls thought the cruise lines ought to paint on their ships . There it,s out of my system now and you know what ? I miss those times ! The look in a child,s eyes as they build and then can say "I did it in my dad,s shop" Is worth more than the little messes that inevitably happened once in a while .  I wouldn,t trade those years to live like DONALD TRUMP because you know what ? He hasn,t enough bucks to buy that kind of wonderful times father and children had together . ! RIGHT !! you betchya . Thanks for sharing that with us , your readers.     tankerbuilder
