Look forward to seeing it. Are you doing S.O.B or will you use some after market or scratch building?

I think Ron means Straight Out of the Box, Michael but it is not a widely used abbreviation. To avoid any confusion with a phrase that some U.S. modellers might find offensive I think the more common abbreviation "OOB" -Out Of the Box - might be preferable. The term is used to describe a model made from a kit without major modifications other than, say, new decals, antenna wire, rigging, or seat belts made from tape and modellers will often say something like "the model was built OOB".

As soon as I saw Ron had used "SOB" I thought maybe we've got to be careful here, we don't want to upset anybody! OOB is the most used term, Michael and the majority of modellers on here will know what you mean if you use it :grin:

I know the feeling when it comes to scale, I find 1/72 to small because of my eye sight ! It's a pain getting old :lol: :lol: :lol:
I tend to stick to 1/48 or bigger but even then I struggle some times ;-) . Any way mate good building, look forward to seeing it.
