This thread is a big chunk of Extravaganza, glazed with a thin layer of crazyness and topped by a big heart for classic Hollywood.
It's great entertainment to follow along.

Girl in one hand, a beer in the other… :whistle:

Thank you, sir. It was a long, long day at work and reading your comments was an enormous spiritual lift.

Thank you, sir. You’re closer to the answer then you might think. I do have Godzilla stomping his way to Los Angeles at the moment, and plans to add resin bits and bobs.

However I have to build Vasca da Gama’s carrack for a music video. I’m excited about this because it’s a storm effects sequence done with practical effects. The model won’t survive, but the images will.

Mustang! I have learned so much about finishing models from you, brother.

Likewise, I have learned so much about model building, mojo and life from you, Carlos.

To all:

Thank you for your friendship.

Don’t forget Ghidra too - the three-headed Japanese dragon! :giggles: :giggles: :giggles:
I can’t remember if there was a Rodan kit too. I had Kong, Godzilla and Ghidra kits when I was a kid.

Yup, there also was a Rodan kit. Have the re pop in my stash from an auction win.

I missed this thread from being away. Man Mr B that is so sweet. The B&W pic is especially convincing. Well done brother, well done.
Now that we know that.... What have we learned?...
