I sent the guy the link to the model and explained how I would do the repaint he wanted, and he responded that he wondered if I had ever built it, so I fixed the parts issue and enlarged by 10% (which is my standard way of making a 1\64 model more compatible with 28mm. I told him what I was doing, and he requested I would do a build thread. Since Dave said he would do a model of the car, but it wouldn't bump anything out of his immediate priorities, I decided not to do a repaint, but go ahead and build the almost standard PH3DM model of the RSQ. Then I decided that Dave might back out if he saw there was a model of the RSQ already out there, so I'm posting it here.
Maybe some day I'll enlarge it a bit more and do the repaint, but I doubt it. The last photo shows how two models in the same scale can look awkward together. Actually, I'm impressed with how he captured the shape of the car well (I really like the look of the fenders), but it is pretty stinking dark and to get the tabs to line up when installing the base piece, you have to fudge a bit to get it to sit straight. Probably due to accumulated errors of creating the sides out of five parts. But here it is for better or worse

Color me disappointed. I sent my changes to a guy that was pestering me for it after he saw it. He never did a build thread of it, but now I spot it on one of the pirate sites (I admit, I have downloaded some very old models from there that just wouldn't be available from legitimate sources, but the main reason I troll these sites is to spot models being posted that are designed by people I know).
Not only is it definitely my recolor, but it is attributed to someone other than the guy I gave it to, or me, or the original designer. And I had previously thought fairly highly of the individual it is attributed to. It may have been in error for the attribution, or it could be an intentional misleading (after all, they are pirates).
I guess I should be thankful that they didn't plaster my name on it.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
squirmydad: Bag is handy, if you find it loose use the seeds, but then you need something like an infuser or it's a mess.

squirmydad: Have you tried fennel tea to ease some of your bronchial issues? I like it and it seems to help me.

Vermin King: But I should be good for at least another week before I will need to head out for restocking anything

Vermin King: I think the biggest problem is that I've been dealing with it since the 17th. I know that my immunity level is down from being sick this long, and now one of my medications also lowers immunity. And we've got this blasted other thing floating around

Vermin King: Not Covid-19, but sinusitis and bronchitis. prescriptions and instructions to stay away from everyone for a week. let them know if I get worse

Vermin King: I still don't think I have it, but been doing run around trying to get in to see someone, somewhere about getting tested. If not The Virus, I still need to figure out what this is and get it knocked out

Vermin King: But I had to drop off my electric bill before Monday (an excuse to get out), and saw I still had a full tank of gas. Filled up on 3/11 and after tonight have gone 54.7 miles ...

Vermin King: Since my Location is either Randolph, Sugar Creek, Four miles SW of Sugar Creek, or Raytown, I wonder if I'm being shown as ignoring the order. As with all stats, you have to take them with a grain of salt
