Speaking of building, I thought you wanted a Micro SSX kit? They have been on the market with full instructions for over a month now. Got lots of combo packs also.

He's doing better! But, he's still got a LONG road to recovery. They are supposed to do all remaining surgeries at the beginning of the week. They are pretty much keeping him under because of the pain. Mac said they wake him from time to time but he stays under pretty much 24/7. He's still in ICU but doing pretty good!

We were all shocked when we heard about the crash. I am glad he is doing well.

I have an SSX and a Micro SSX kit. I just finished a Micro Telemaster today, and have a Cobwebb II started and an Art Hobby Castor E ahead of the SSX's. The Castor is about 3/4's done, so hopefully it won't be long.

I am looking forward to the build. They are very nice kits, I probably better get extra's for a Rainy day.

Have we met?

I probably ran into you at SEFF last year. I picked up a set of X landing gear, and never did understand why it was removed from best new product voting.

I bought the SSX at Grave's because those evil employees said, "Hey, look at this!"

For a few hours on Saturdays, I have been working behind the counter at graves. Stop in and say hello. I am there between Noon and 4:00PM.

I pulled the X-Gear from the competition at SEFF because I had 3 products entered. My votes were split. I should have pulled two and only kept one. I could not decide which one to keep.

Applying The new Micro SSX ARF decals:


1. Cut excess material from decal before removing the backing.
2. Remove the protective backing to expose the adhesive.
3. Add about 3 drops of dish soap to 2 pints of clean water. Put it in
a spray bottle and spray the back of the decal.
4. Slide the decal into position and squeegee the excess water from under
the decal.
5. Allow the decal to dry overnight.
