I arrived home this afternoon to find a very small but rather alluring cardboard box sitting on the dresser. The post mark was mostly rubbed off, the only other clue as to it's source being a blue label with some funny squiggles and the words "PAR AVION" written underneath. Sort of Belgium sounding I thought - couldn't find it in the atlas though.
Undaunted, I opened the box and peeked inside
there it was a... a... a... Xzylon!
What had I done to deserve this? I've heard of hate mail but surely this was a step too far! Anyway, remembering my Greek mythology and the story of Medusa, I thought it best not to look directly into the box. Rather, I reached for the mirror to examine the Xzylon's gorgon like reflection fearing that a direct glance would surely result in my being turned to stone at any moment.
Anyway, to cut a long (and mostly made up) story short, I didn't turn to stone and actually, the Xyzlon looks quite attractive in a Kathy Burke kind of way
. Although it's much smaller of course.
So, a big THANK YOU Russell - a lovely surprise as I really wasn't expecting this at all. The model is in fact beautifully crafted and, yes, I shall build it. Build it I shall
Oh, and did I mention that it's really tiny?
