[...]  Some 1/8 scale kits have fallen into my hands over the years, but that scale is one where I frequently run into OOP issues.  I can either buy recasts and hide from @Grumpy Cave Bear or track down people like @Disciple of Sakura and rob them acquire their dusty old kits. [...]

 

Heh.  I never said I didn’t own recasts, it’s just personal experience that soured me on them.  I picked up several recasts in the early 90’s when I first got into the hobby, some from a shop when I visited Taiwan, some mail-order in the U.S., and only learned they were recasts after I learned more of the hobby.  What a struggle they were to assemble!  My penance for buying early 90’s recasts was having to build and paint early 90’s recasts.  That tradition of punishing yourself with recasts continues today, especially if you buy the stuff made in Thailand and sold on eBay, which I hear literally crumbles in your hands.

 

@Auberon, if you’re serious about it, I think the future of large scale figure modeling is in 3D printing.

Dropped a paragraph on garage kit hobby which on re-reading was too pessimistic.

we found an inanimate carbon rod with looking for question 21, What is the best use for it?

Um. What size?  Large inanimate carbon rods worry me. (Is there a supercritical situation somewhere because the rod is absent?)

Since Kobolds seem to be so fond of fishing, make a Carbon Fishing Rod out of it so we can barter with them the next time they steal a question.

My first thought is Kobolds probably aren't great electricians. So there's probably something around here that needs grounded.

Kidnapped Elon Musk and made him launch a rocket, completely unintended for landing on the surface of anything, at the moon. The real question is how they got back.

I'm worried that you felt the need to specify "inanimate" but I'm gonna go with tying a scorpion to one end, and using it to barter with the kobolds.

Kobolds are in charge of the W.O.O.F. space program and are attempting the gain control of the moon as well as the Getting T Know You Thread. Given kobolds are dog-like creatures, it seems obvious that this is just a big conspiracy by W.O.O.F.
