Totally Agree - This is SO COOL

Sooooo Coooool! [John Derbyshire]

When I was a wee lad, back in those far-off days when kids had hobbies, I spent many happy hours assembling model planes from kits. Airfix, Revell, Monogram, … I pretty much worked my way through their inventories. The art was in the painting. You bought teeny cans of paint made by a firm named Humbrol (still in business, I see), fine horsehair brushes, and lotsa white spirit.

If I'd kept at it, I might have attained these astonishing heights. The reader who sent me the link remarks:

The model was obviously hand built and runs on chain saw engines. Nice touch with the X-1. The voice of the boy saying "this is soooo cooool! " says it all.
Indeed it does.
