The Fantastic Plastic Journey Begins

Actually, it started when I was in second grade. My folks got me a 1985 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 1/8 scale model kit by Monogram. I had no concept of scale models and scale modeling that time and I was a bit disappointed to have gotten a toy car that I had to put together myself. I eventually figured it out but without proper guidance and tools, I messed it up big time. I only had access to industrial-grade rubber cement and that was the only other adhesive I've known then other than Elmer's glue, which I've learned isn't really suitable for plastic model kits.
