This blocky little fellow is a static wooden model given to me as a
gift or present or something like that. I had never seeen a static
model made of wood, and the kit was intended for someone with greater
woodworking skills than my own. Or maybe I just failed to read the
directions closely. It was a long time before I realized I was
supposed to have carved and shaped all of the wooden surfaces
into a more scale-like appearance. Heck, I just glued the thing
together! The one part I did try my hand at carving was the
propellor. The photo may not reveal it, but it's a pretty rough job.
I don't know what happened to his little guy. It hung suspended in my
basement work area for a long time. It may be packed in a box
somewhere. Anyway, this kit will always serve as a reminder for me to
never buy kids a project beyond their skill level. This one was
certainly beyond mine at the time.
