After much head scratching and staring intently at my kit stash, I've finally decided what I'm going to build for the contest!

First up, I'm going to put together this fine piece of Luh-suh, Stargazer's FireFly. I've been holding out on building it, hoping to figure a way to squeeze a bunch of sequencer lights into the gravity ring. I've decided instead to just build the Gorram thing and enjoy it!



Next up, a rare car build for me, a late model Mistubshi Delica, similar to that I've been driving until recently! darn I miss that van! :'(


Also rare as these vans are seldom seen outside of British Columbia and rare as it took my local hobby shop a couple months to get one of these in for me!

In the meantime I have four other builds to complete, so this will be...interesting to say the least!

D'OH!

Darph is in the sci-fi category...I might as well throw in the towel.

Well, not yet..But good luck Darph.

lol! Thank you for the compliment, you give me too much credit! The real challenge for me will be to actually FINISH a model! ;D

I'm looking forward to seeing your build! I bet it will be a cracker! 8)

You never tipped the Mitsubishi minivan? They're so high up! But they look cool too. I always see one outside the park gates near Marmot in Jasper.

Re: Finally decided!

That Firefly looks sweet!
That would be great to see it finished - I can't recall I've encountered this kit done in web for now.
Great choice!

Never tipped her, she handled like my old sports car! Except my old sports car could never do this:

Lol, its a shame Firefly was ever cancelled. Awesome show. The Van reminds me of the old Daihatsu Hi-Jets from way back when. Good times. Good luck on the builds. Some AllClad would sure make Serenity pop :)
