Howdy Boom Jockies, 

 

I found this sad looking Model kit without a box or instructions, and decided to my very best at putting it together.......

 

I may wind up with a bunch of extra parts that I don't know what to do with. 

 

I am making the industrial sounds required for the entire time I am building this. 

 

Anyone have a playlist they listen to while building these models?

Smooth criminal or toto's africa. Two very different songs but hey it's what I like.

 

Nice model you found though, do you know what brand it is and say where you found it?

I like your little Frankenstein "army man".

 

Your thread reminds me of a time a few years back when I was based in the UAE for an 8 month contract to fly global freight routes commanding Boeing 747-200F planes.

 

I had a lot of time off and found a great entertainment complex that had, among many other things, a 1,000 foot RC model runway, with a fully lighted surrounding area for night flying (in order to avoid the 125F summer heat of the daytime).

 

A group of us, all contract freight pilots, joined the RC club. The Arabs who frequented the club were all very wealthy and brought large multi-engine and or jet powered models to fly there.

 

One day, another captain and I were at the model field alone and after flying in the heat of the day for as long as we could stand it, I had a brainstorm. The sandy desert area around the runway was littered with crashed RC models and many of them had somewhat usable bits and pieces surviving because the wealthy Emiraties couldn't be bothered to salvage smashed models.

 

My friend and I scoured the grounds and salvaged a wing here, a half fuselage there, a slightly damaged landing gear, etc., until we put together enough junk to actually build a "Frankenstein" RC plane.

 

It was hilarious, after 2 or 3 days of patching the thing together, we actually ended up with a flyable model plane. When we flew it (it didn't fly very well), the rich Arabs got a real kick out it.

How does one avoid cuts while jamming out to smooth criminal? Is it worth the risk of loosing fingers? 

 

I believe it's Italleri, and it was found under a desk.
