Another super old one.  I think late 1990s or early 2000s.  I had an opportunity to pick up an old Aurora bagged Fokker E.  I instantly remembered how much fun it was building these in an afternoon when I was a youngster.  I decided since it would never be a accurate kit I'd build it out-of-the-box and just do the neatest workman-like build I could with what was there.  My goal was to build it in one weekend and paint it the next.  The painting ended up taking me 2 weekends.  I took it to a IPMS Regional...or was it an invitational?  I thought it would be good for a laugh but I ended up with ist place and best something, I can't remember.  The judges were dazzled by anyone making something out of such an old kit.  It was fun!
