FlisKits A.C.M.E. Spitfire
This is more along the lines of something you'd expect to see racing through the desert after some strange bird rather than into the wild blue yonder! So, here's the story......Ever have one of those days where nothing is going right? I mean by the BUCKET load! I fire up the ol' computer to do some more work on the latest kit design for FlisKits and what do I find? The file has gotten corrupted, the computer is acting up and my mouse is skipping and jerking. But I have a job to do, get this design in the bag and into production. Well it was a long night and it wasn't until I woke the next day that I realized what had happened to the design. Then it was too late and we HAD to make it work!
