Larry K 20.7 inches long, 9.1 inches wide, and 5.6 inches high, time to build will be 2 1/2 years (it's a 130 issue subscription)

Spanjaard Holy ....
15. July 2018 at 22:17:14
Robbie WHAT ?!?!
15. July 2018 at 22:56:20
Brad Furminger Ok, this is just too nuts to not take a seat.
15. July 2018 at 23:07:14
Larry K It's going to be a long build,
16. July 2018 at 00:10:56
Spanjaard Mine are always too long, at least you have a good excuse :)
16. July 2018 at 08:08:49
Gordon Sørensen Mine too, Spanjaard!

Larry K I've have started projects that date back to the 90's, someday maybe they will be finished
16. July 2018 at 21:45:46
Jozef Goos nice project
17. July 2018 at 13:12:46
Glenn . Larry we have something in common... I'm a slow builder too! I have some models from 10 years ago i need to finish... Just waiting for the "paint to dry" :)
17. July 2018 at 15:42:19
17. July 2018 at 16:12:06
Larry K I just have to many models and not enough time, I Still have a few hundred more just to inventory
17. July 2018 at 22:30:50
Spanjaard it is just a question of living two hundred years, if not manage to finish, blame Medicine for not advancing fast enough!
18. July 2018 at 10:27:59
Larry K That's a good one
18. July 2018 at 22:21:23
wilky $2000 here in Australia. I'd love to build it but can't afford it
28. July 2018 at 19:17:41
Larry K It's only about $51.00 USD a mouth for a about 2 ½ years
28. July 2018 at 19:41:00
wilky Previous experience has taught me not to start buying one of these monthly instalment jobies.
I have half of a 1/8 Fokker DR1 because I lost my job before I all editions were released.
Once again I am in a casual position but this time I'm older and my health is such that I can't guarantee living that long
28. July 2018 at 21:01:15
Larry K This is my 1st one, and someday I hope to have the time to build one of those wooden plank on bulkhead model ships (probably in 10 years or so)
28. July 2018 at 21:19:25
wilky Good luck with it. Should turn out to be a very impressive model
28. July 2018 at 22:00:58
Larry K Thanks' The tricky part is that my instruction booklets don't match with the parts that are included with that particular issue, I'm seen on youtube instruction booklets with different part callouts and different screws, I've had to trim parts, and even painted some due to blemishes on the parts themselves.
28. July 2018 at 22:11:30
Spanjaard More than 1000USD and wrong instructions?!
29. July 2018 at 17:08:41
Robbie Again I repeat my post - WHAT ?!?!
29. July 2018 at 20:26:01
Larry K They apparently have revised their instruction booklets but shipped out what they have printed previously in stock. Issue 5 parts & booklet match, just need a little touch-up painting on one of the parts.
29. July 2018 at 21:20:48
Glenn . Yea, After i brought the Millennium Falcon 100 part (2 years later!) edition. I can't be bothered to get any others. Besides i have the Sideshow 1/6 scale DeLorean pre built model and matching figure! (see my Albums) :)
30. July 2018 at 04:48:44
Larry K Hi Glenn, I tried to purchase the Millennium Falcon, but it kept rejecting from payment options, and 1/8 scale is large enough for me. I have a few Corvettes, Camaros, and 1 Firebird from Monogram, But I did see the 1/6 DeLorean, It's really nice.
30. July 2018 at 10:02:13
Glenn . Thanks Larry, Well at least it's not on my build pile, Not wait that should be my build mountain! I wish you well with your DeLorean. I'll get around to building the Falcon "one day" :)
31. July 2018 at 00:13:22
Larry K Hi Glenn, I've have to many models and not enough time, the intensions are there to build them when I first purchase them, but then my life style changes when someone new comes along and I just stop building for a while, and the models just sit in the basement waiting to be built. I still need to inventory a few hundred or so, when I have chance to build, I'll build them. I hope to anyway.
31. July 2018 at 02:50:08
Glenn . True! Until i started to list everything on here I'd lost count on what i have. Now it just freaks me out about what i have. I blame working too many hours and coming home and sitting down in front of the computer instead of the television. Where i used to sit and build and watch T.V. at the same time, Now i sit at the computer and buy too much stuff. New kits and Decals and aftermarket resin conversions! Damn internet! Most of my stuff comes from online shopping as i don't have many decent hobby stores around that are open at 12pm!
31. July 2018 at 03:09:16
Spanjaard yep, you are not the only one. "fortunatelly" i have less space, so my stash can not grow like yours, otherwise.....
31. July 2018 at 05:22:11
Glenn . Just walked back out to the warehouse and the post van arrived! More stuff for me from the Ukraine this time! The new AMP 1/72 Canberra T.11 and a 1/144 scale Dash 8 from Eastern Express in Qantas markings! plus loads of resin bits and pieces i ordered.
31. July 2018 at 06:16:04
Larry K Hi guys, I been doing the about the same, looking every day and buying most of my stuff on eBay, Japan, Hong Kong, Canada, England, the mail man was always delivering packages. Just to much stuff.
31. July 2018 at 10:01:45
Ron Dyson this looks very familier ,.....
23. October 2018 at 01:49:14

JOHN THOMAS Very nice work
28. October 2018 at 12:59:04
Larry K Thanks' John, the photos make it look better than what it really looks like.
28. October 2018 at 13:21:00
JOHN THOMAS You know Larry, you made a time machine out of a deloriean
28. October 2018 at 21:08:30
Larry K And I wished it really would work as a time machine
28. October 2018 at 21:22:25
Robert Hall Well, he figured that if he was going to make a time machine out of a car, why not a car with style ! besides, it's stainless steel construction made the flux dispersion more even !
29. October 2018 at 05:40:59
Larry K The body of this model is made out of metal, so it probably won't work very well as a time machine.
