I am still building models with the "old guys" on fridays. I finished my second rubber band model some time ago, but only found the pictures on my phone today.
The "old guys" teased me unrelentingly about the fact that my first rubber band model was pink and the second was purple with flowers. Now, however, they enjoy it and brag to the museum customers about how unique my airplanes are. I am currently building my first RC model from scratch and the guys are already taking bets about what color it will be. :-)
