Thanks!

I'm in the process of getting some decals for another project, the B-36 in 1/72. I've had one of these since the 1990s with the wrapping on it and opened it for the first time last week. Seems that Monogram/Revell forgot to put the decal sheet and instructions in the box!

Not only are the decals and instructions missing from my B-36--I pulled everything from the box and also discovered the clear fret is not there and some small interior parts are gone also, as well as the tail turret and 20mm cannon. I bought this kit from a big hobby shop in the Dallas area and now I realize that someone had bought the kit and returned it to the store after taking what he needed. Either the thief or the hobby shop resealed it and stupid me never opened it for twenty years. Not the blame of Revell/Monogram at all as I thought at first. I'll simply have to either find the parts (not likely) or raid the spares boxes for what I need and vacuform the canopy and front glazing. I still have the side blisters for the gunners and scanners that I didn't use on the FICON model, so at least I have something!!

Continuing with the models I've finished in the time of inactivity here on LLL is another kit that's been in waiting for years. This Dragon Ju-88 finally saw completion and was another relaxing build.

Long time since an update, I finally broke down and found another B-36 kit that was complete, so I plan to start on that one in the near future. Right now I am finishing one of the ancient Hasegawa B-47s and will post a couple of pictures of it. I found another bare metal product that works great with the Vallejo nmf so I'll post on the Natural Metal thread.

Yes, my friend everything is good here. We have been so busy with so many things that I only come here to see what everyone else is doing. Now the vegetable garden is priority along with our summertime hummingbird flocks, but I am still building models in the little room......
