I was running a search on Ebay for ship kits and I found a Typhoon sub and the U.S.S. Tarawa being offered by a seller called Janice. At the bottom of the description it said ( and you married men of a nervous disposition should look away now) "Bought by my Husband who had every intention of building them but hasn't got around to it!"

I didn't realise you married guys had it so bad.

My wife thought it'd make sense for her to count the unbuilt models in my work room. I think we have agreed that anything less than 100 is OK . . .

Still, if you see a lot of car kits listed from Southern Ind., let me know.

I expect someday to see my son's computer stuff listed that way - by his wife. He sure can pick 'em.

Is that thing back on there again!

The sad thing is that, when one of these showed up on eBay a couple months ago, I sent the seller a question regarding the humor value of the description for his "device" and he actually responded to me. He was highly annoyed at my skepticism and my ijnsinuation that "machine" didn't do what he said it would. He swore to me that he "had taken several trips himself."

Of his closing remark, I was quite sure he was truthful. However, I suspect the medium for his "trips" was more pharmaceutical-based than use of his "time warp device." ;~)

No, buy a carton of each, keep maybe three of each for yourself and sell the rest on eBay to fund your expedition!

Screw that!! Go back to about '82 and drop every dollar you can beg, borrow or steal into Microsoft stock. Then you can buy all you want off eBay regardless of the price. Actually, first I'd go back to April 14, 1912 and slap the $hit out of one Capt Smith, and take over the ship. Then on to Dec 6 '41 to chat with FDR and convince him of the events about to unfold.

Thus ensuring that nothing would be the way it is now. While that has some attraction one must remember that it could be far worse. That said, I'd go back to 1962 in Wildwood, NJ and buy up a bunch of those car kits that went for $1.50 - $2.00. I might migrate forward to '63 and get some more.
