When I was little my dad had a little workshop in our basement. He’d make the best booby prizes for his golf trips. He’d make me and my sisters Halloween costumes. He like to paint and he even made me a home made “Death-star” planet out of basically junk. It was great. He had a few boxes of just parts and pieces of all kinds of things. I started making stuff too. Rubber band guns, my own toy rifle, then I started modifying my matchbox cars. I loved Mad-max movies and wanted cars like that. I even made a scenery on an old bread tray like they load on the trucks. I used spray insulation and made a fort in it out of the “trees” of plastic left after you put a model together. Wire, nails and I covered the bottom with sand. The model train setups inspired me but they were just kind of boring to a little boy who likes sci-fi stuff. Wish we had digital cameras then. I got picks of the Halloween costumes and the “Death-star”  I’ll have to scan someday.

Lots of super glue! Could explain a few things. But not bad for a little kid.
