    Jack Wag'n Pearl on the Vega body took a bad turn, so will need to let it sit a few days before I try to fix it. In the meantime, I made progress on Jack, himself. Sent from my BND-L24 using Tapatalk

    Jack Wag'n I've been building models for a LOT of years now, and the Roth/Newt/Mouse/Weird-Ohs were always some of my favorites, even though they were out of production, not to really start seeing reissues until I was in junior high in the early '80s. I spent lots of hours teaching myself to...
