I'm 36 years old now, but when I was around 6-8 years old I have a very fond memory of my Dad going to Hobby Lobby, and purchasing several boxes of this specific model kit. At first, building them, painting them, etc was a thing we did to spend time together but after a while, I discovered what an exacto knife was and then I started using that knife to start cutting these models into pieces in an attempt to design my own starship. My dad caught onto what I was doing and got involved and by the time we finished, we created our own custom starfleet ship that we jokingly called the USS Outerprise.
Today, for the first time since I was 8 years old, got to build it AGAIN, but this time on Blender! This brought back a lot of really good memories.
