    You might want to set it outside so it can rust.

    I'm doing a cooked down vinegar pickle on it as we speak. Same mixture I used on my BO9 bike "The Pepperbox Special".

    I have another prize to throw in the pot. I picked this up at a local hobby store stripped the bright red paint off and rustified it. It will go to the rusty bike I like best. It is 1/12 scale and would make a nice Christmas ornament or just set it on a shelf. I have a little bit more to do to it. The tires are too shiny.

    Hopefully I can find a flat rate box this'll fit in, otherwise, yes, it will be a pricey ship. It's finished though, awaiting clear coat and a winner to appoint it to.

    So I said I would throw a prize in the pot.When I was looking for things for the Indian .
    I came across some great cast iron bottle openers on Ebay.
    Some are repo's,and some are vintage(used).
    Here are a few designs. PicMonkey Collage.jpg I will let the winner choose what they want.
    Go to ebay and punch in cast iron bottle opener and have a look.
    Value is up to $20.00(has to include the shipping) ....
    The prize is for best doodads....

    And the winner is: drumroll please....
    SUPER-SONIC. by @Big Ape:
    There are so many doodads on that spaceship,I doubt it would be able to lift off the ground.:rofl:
