Was thinking of using this as a reviews thing but then all the venom that that would no doubt create would cause me issues.
Then I thought, what about your building projects, what about that? Of course that is an idea but it's not exactly what Beyond the Launchpad was set up to be.
I'm giving myself a window until the new year to start thinking what next. Any ideas - well, you know where to comment...

This weekend I have progressed with several projects, some nearer completion than others, but I thought I'd give you a peek at something more or less complete - a 1/6 scale Jawa I purchased last weekend at the Maidstone Vintage Toy Fair.
When purchased I thought I'd just got a lump of plastic to display only. Wrong. It seemed it was one of the 1997 Special Edition releases, which did have a neat little gimmick of light up eyes, however, the contacts on the on/off button were not in a great shape and worse still the button was a contact switch - so the light came on only when the switch was pressed... Time for some Martin magic.
Following resetting the Jawa in one piece a quick photo of him with his vision 'restored'. Something to impress guests to SafeHaven in the future, or to freak them out...

It's May. Japan seems so far away, in time, space and distance now. The nights are lighter.
I've been building. But I still haven't built perfect. I'm not sure I can but I keep trying. That's the point.
No picture for this post. Figured I should though - it's been a while.
