    Airfix 1/72 Scale, Hawker Huricaine MK1.



    I could not sleep, so i thought id post a frame by frame account of my build.

    I see a woman in the nightWith a baby in her hand Under an old street light Near a garbage can. Now she puts the kid away,
    and she's gone to get a hit She hates her life,
    and what she's done to it. There's one more kid that will never go to school Never get to fall in love,
    never get to be cool.
