Two weeks ago, I got some really nice etched parts for my Sango Dachs kit. All told, they were less than $20 shipped from Japan. I think these will look nicer than the cast (injected?) parts that came with the kit. Now that the temperature is starting to cool off, the workbench/are will get a good cleaning in the weeks ahead, and I'll be ready to get back to work on some long standing projects. The Dachs is one of those, neglected for months in a box covered in dust.
The leaves are hinting of change, so that means modeling season!
