Once I spent 3 weeks building a Ranger Splash PU for my ex for Christmas, just because she said she really liked them. Wired engine, perfect paint, display case, even made a personalized licence plate w/ her name. Xmas comes, she opens it, looks at it for about 3 seconds and says, "oh ... thanks" and sets it aside.
You're an exception, Sheila.
What is the kit, BTW?

Hmm...I don't recall the 3rd anniversary being plastic. I thought it was either leather (traditional) or crystal/glass (modern). Smile [:)]

Congrats to both of you on your wedding anniversary!!

Congrats on your 3rd anniversary! Best wishes and I hope that you'll be together forever.

I know 3 years is quite something already in the US nowadays. Me and my wife have been together for 5 years now. We had our share of problems but we always find a way to work it out. I treat our marriage like I treat my models. I work really hard to get it right and when it is done, I always find something that could be still done to improve it. So, I keep working on it.


Use super glue to keep it together "for better or for worse". ..

Congrats Sheila and Chris on your anniversary. Bow [bow] Great present too. I must be a sucker, my wife keeps telling me that every anniversary is the Diamond one. Dunce [D)] No, my wife doesn't get this plastic thing at all.

Congrats on the Anniversary!

Now, if I ever bought my wife a model (for anything, let alone an Anniversary) I would be in the doghouse.

Her favorite passtime is puzzles. Let's see, hundreds of small pieces that all look alike, putting it together with no instructions, Go figure......

Christmas b4 last I gave my wife a model of the "Monkeemobile". She LOVED it. She didn't build it, I did. But she is such a fan of that "group" that I knew she would like it.

Big Smile [:D]I have a dear friend who lokes models. It was my birthday and she asked what I would like. I gave her a kit of Revell's 1:32 Panavia Tornado and asked her to build it for me as my present.Wink [;)] She was ecstatic and she did a better job than I could have done.Bow [bow] I wasn't into modern jets then. I gave my pastor a model of his dream vehicle since I couldn't get him the real thing. I had to kitbash (the operative word being BASH since I needed four kits to complete it after my mess ups) a Ford F-350 four door with duallies. He loved it. Perhaps you married types could try something like that.Whistling [:-^] If it doesn't work, I do mariage counseling.Big Smile [:D]Big Smile [:D]Big Smile [:D]

Thanks everyone, sure made shopping for her alot easier. No strange shops or anything like that. Maybe for our 50th we could do a 1/16 Tiger, be something to look forward to.

Tigerman- Did it come with little hula hoops?

Paul- Right now our 2 year old is the one that is good at kit bashing in this house!

You are the exception Sheila. I consider myself lucky because my fiance not only puts up with my hobby, she likes watching me build and she frequently buys me kits. But I cannot ever see her putting one together, just not her style.

Congratulations on your anniversary, we just passed 26 ourselves.
My wife once asked me straight up for a new electric can opener, and when she opened it she said "Is this it? You got me a CAN OPENER!!!"
Many happy returns,

I got my wife a model for her 40th birthday (Roden's 1/48 Gloster Gladiator), but that was only one of her many presents. She did like it though. It's the next one on her 'to build' list..!

My girlfriend wouldn't buy me a model, mostly because she lives really far away (she= kansas, me= vancouver canada)...
its been almost a year, however.

My first duty station was Bitburg, Germany. I watched the first F-15 come in and the last F-4 leave. A few years later when I met my future wife she could keep her eyes off the pics of the 15s. She has always supported me in my hobby and one day she walded up to me and said I want an F-15. She did not want it in 1/72 scale, which I was heavy into at the time, it had to be 1/48 scale. The 15 is still her favorite and you can't fool her with 18s or any of those Russian aircraft. She says," That's not an F-15, it is not good looking enough!"
