Toleman TG183b is a very unique car with front wing mount radiators. More importantly, it was the first F1 car that Senna raced in. For a long time, the only Toleman TG183b kit made in 1/43 scale was by SRC. I was lucky enough to have one in my inventory after a long search. Like any other old kits, SRC kits are not that precisely made. Finally, Tameo is making a kit and my supplier just notified me that it's on the way! Can't wait to get my hands on it.

Baby steps, summer firework and red bean

Time for the weekly update. This weekend, I managed only to have the 2 winglets on the side done, attached a piece of photo-etched part for the rear diffuser, drilled and tapped the boss so that I can screw the base on. Baby steps, baby steps.

A bunch of friends from the suburb were in the city yesterday. So I brought them to Navy Pier to watch the firework.

And lastly, I found this red bean flavored KitKat from the store. I think wasabi, green tea or pudding flavor are better than the red bean.

Guess what?

Seems like things are settling down a bit. So this happened! Wondering if anyone can guess what it is just from the above picture. Hint: the driver lineup for this team in that particular year is an Austrian and a German.

Also, I have been conducting another culinary experiment. Many years ago, I took 3 dried abalone from Mom's pantry, saying that I'll figure out how to cook them and then tell her about it. Finally this weekend, I tried to cook them.
