The "cabana" would have to have a fully equipped, air-conditioned and bug-free "shop" area with internet to deal with any servicing issues that may arise. The washroom of course would have a full Jacuzzi tub.There would also have to be comfortable golf carts to get around in.

That's totally the model I've been eyeing lately, I love that one, good choice. I'm currently building the amt 'vantasy' model kit every evening after the baby goes down for the night. Havn't build a model in years so I'm taking my time and really enjoying this one. I've been painting over all of the chrome and rusting it out, even put all the spark plug wires on too! :-)

Oh Ryan, I think you're in trouble now, you may have caught the scalers bug! :-) Soon you'll be buying an axial honcho or dingo and going all out custom with it, (hope! hope!).

As for models, I've got two '77 chevy vans in box and a honda civic just like my own in GT5 on the ps3. Someone locally is selling a millineum falcon 19" model kit with all pieces, I'm feeling tempted..........must resist!

Ya, just hovering at home trying to get the gyro locked in. Only ran 2 batteries through it so far, crappy weather you know. Made a stop at Rotorquest on my way to London, picked up my order. Wanted to throw my wallet at the nice looking Asian girl working there and fill my car with goodies, her too. Na, maybe not, just be trouble like the rest.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

And may Santa put lots of big boy toys under the tree. Both sky toys and land toys and water toys and (use your imagination) toys.

RAZ!

This is the voice of the TRUE force.

It is true that we all come from the ground but it is in the air that we belong. Our lipos are happiest driving props and blades, not wheeels. The beasts of the ground have their purpose and usefulness but our undeniable destiny is the air! What can match the pleasure of having an aircraft rise in the air totally under the control of our fingers on the sticks? It climbs, swoops and dives on our whim. We learn each and every part of its construction. We know every fastener and every linkage. We learn the true nature of its embedded systems. We do all of this for one reason and one reason only.....we know that true passion and true pleasure can only be found in the air.


REMEMBER YOUR ROOTS RAZ!

Also remember, your wife is going to whip your butt if you mess up that laminate floor with the chains on those tires.
Almost forgot, there will also be a six month, non-stop lip-flapping nag to go with that butt whipping.
