I've created a monster.

So my 6 year old son is working on a Revellogram 1/72 F-14 snap kit and blurts out  " Whoever made this kit did a terrible job! I can't get my cutters around the (sprue) tab as it's in a stupid place." This is one of the few snap kits he's put together. He's built a few regular kits already but this was out of a loot bag from his birthday party so I thought would be a quick build. 

I think I've let the monster out of the cage and he'll be demanding only Tamiya or Hasegawa kits from here on. :lol:

So true guys. No requests yet for AM but it's only a question of time...

This morning I go woken up because my oldest Findlay wanted a sanding stick as Edward wasn't sharing. It turns out they'd woken up at 630 and raided the stash. Thankfullybi have some older 1/72 Hasegawa kits so good practice for them.

The good stash is all in big kits so they're harder for them to pull out. For now at least...

Their interest in cars have already started.

Findlay was recently upset at the possiblity that autonomous cars might eliminate his chance at learning to drive in 8 years. We told him truly self driving cars are much further away and not to worry.

This pic is from a couple years ago. It's when my wife briefly considered one for our family car.

She figured since they could buckle up Thier seatbelts on their own a Challenger would be fine. Changed her mind when she saw the mileage. Maybe we'll try again in a couple years...

Awesome Carl ! I tried with my grandson moons ago, but gaming is his thing.....hatv

Thanks Harv! They play the odd game but we've managed to limit their time on tablets and what have you. With some recent studies having  come out on the impact of mobile devices and TV on really young kids, we're kind of glad too.
