Missing Piece

In a perfect world, I would be typing positive words about the status of the Lippisch build. This is unfortunately not a perfect world for me. Somehow, I managed to misplace the canopy to the Lippisch. Ready to finish the build-up of the cockpit for the canopy to actually fit, I discovered it had gone missing. I recruited my children to form a search party, but to no avail. With the build coming to a screeching halt, I was forced to order another kit. Two kits to be exact. I ordered a back up for my back up. Squadron had them on sale for $4.00 each which was a change of fortune. At least it wasn’t a pricey kit.
While I wait for my order to be delivered, I can now devote more energy into the F-104 and F-102. I started the cockpits tonight and was able to get the seat belts on the ejection seats as well as paint the headrests. I was also able to get the air intakes installed on the F-104 so I can finalize the refueling probe. Baby steps for now. The delay with the Lippisch should help me make some advantageous strides this week with the other two builds.

  1. The dreaded missing piece!

    I can relate to that since I have been searching some missing pieces I had set aside 20 years ago to repair some of my broken model kits.

    My kids are all grown up right now and I don’t think they would understand my cry for help.
    My grandchildren would love this though.
