My brother built this for me about 35 years ago.

That planted the seed and lead me to this...

I was cleaning out some boxes after 2 different moves to 2 different houses and found them. Now they have a permanent home on my desk.

I have the 1/9 model of the WLA-42 in one of my boxes... Would love to get the real thing sometime, myself... Maybe an upcoming project...

My 42WLA all started from my wife buying a WLA t-shirt on a work trip she took out to Seattle and was a gift to me when she got home. Right then and there I had to have one.
