Hi everyone,


Happy to announce that I'm starting my SNJ-5 Project now. I've finished all the projects I had to do for other people, and now it's my turn. :lol: :P I've dreamt about this for a long time, and now the time has come. I've been collecting parts for years, ( still need alot more ) but I have a good start. 8)
I will post pics as I can. Still learning how to do that. :angry:

Ain't that the truth! :lol: I already have too much stuff I've bought that I don't need and too little stuff that I do need. Synergy could be in the air. :wink:

Congrats buddy. That should be a blast. Now for the big question. Do you have a paint scheme picked out yet?

This USCG Scheme would be a unique one:

Don't rush through it in 6 months! Take your time and savor it.........JUST kidding. Good luck and congratulations. I have found (PUN intended) the parts search to be a lot of the fun. I have made a lot of new friends that share the enthusiasum for this crazy passion.
