I should explain about the 1/32nd monkey in a 1/24th car. Jocko was a Rhesus monkey, like the ones used in lab experiments, and they are small. I got a 1/32nd Chimpanzee, a much larger ape, to serve as a 1/24th Rhesus. Scales out just about right.

Okay, they are all finally done. I didn't have the camera skills for showing Jocko Flocko very well, Harry will be able to get it right at HQ!

Packed mine up today. Headed your way this coming week, Harry. Be careful, I glued every detail I could think of on these boats!

I just wish I could have run them first. My track is still down while I am getting a house ready to sell. Its killing me. I scarcely can believe that I did this for a living during summers in college.

I am going to have to back out of this one too. Work has just been crazy over the past three weeks. I have started the bodywork on the convertible but not enough time to finish by Wednesday which is when I would have to ship because will be gone after that.

Hey guys! How's everything coming along? I can't wait to get my hands on these bathtubs!

After talking with Harry, it looks like the cars are coming to So-Cal first. Then on the Harry and Bob. I am lining up a couple guys to help me run them, so we'll have a full blown race this time! I will also broadcast it live just like always.

I'm planning on running them the weekend after Father's Day, if it works out that way anyhow.

Send them to me now. Harry thinks it better to start at this end of the country and end out East.
