How long must someone crastinate before becoming a pro? 59 years ago I purchased a 20 mule team borax model kit, 1/67th scale I believe. I had been a big fan of the TV show Death Valley Days. I listened to the show on radio until we got our first TV set in 1956. When I bought the kit I had big plans to put it together right away. Funny how life gets in the way. The kit was stashed away in a closet and remained there until 2 months ago when I needed a project to keep me busy. What a challenge! The kit is a myriad of tiny parts requiring the use of tweezers to assemble. Would have been easier before arthritis reared its ugly head. Arthritis aside I managed to complete the assembly. First I made the diorama for the kit to mount on. Model railroader how-to videos on the internet were a godsend. Thank You guys. Is this a record for procrastination?
