Firetruck In My Basement

I have a fire truck in my basement. I'm responsible for it. I'm doing the up-keep and maintenance on it, its my project.

But, its not a life size one or anything, its a model of a firetruck. Jeff wanted to do a project together and he suggested we build models. I didn't hesitate when he made this suggestion and I told him sure! In my head I was thinking, why would I want to do that? But, I didn't want to hurt his feelings. So, we ventured out a few weeks ago and bought ourselves each a model vehicle to build.

I have no skills when it comes to building models, so I found a skill level 1 Mack Fire Truck pumper to build. I like firetrucks enough that I don't mind "building" one and to be honest, the skill level is what really caught my attention. Its a paint and then snap together type of build, perfect!

Jeff is a little more advanced when it comes to model building. He has been putting together models for years, but really hasn't in the past couple of years and so I think the bug bit him again and thought it would be nice to do this together. He is working on a Mustang GT.

Last night we worked a little on the model after Drew went to bed. We haven't gotten too far, but we are moving along nicely. We are each painting tiny parts that will snap onto the larger parts when we are done. Jeff is a real sport at "teaching" me how to build my fire truck and I have to admit its not too bad.
