    Here's another project I held off completing for the past 18 months. Over the holidays I finally replaced the elastic in all these binoculars (I just found the one in front so I'll work on it later). Without the elastic they're practically worthless but now they look as good as new.

      Nice! Is the elastic from a particular source? Is it the same diameter and stretchiness as vintage?

        It's available on Amazon. Just type in ".5mm black elastic thread". I think its price is between $7 and $8 per roll.

      My newest project is going to be my first Muscle body build. I purchased this Man of Action from Ebay yesterday, and I already have the kit from Cots to do the rebuild. Just need to get some good glue. I already have a
      minty uniform waiting for him. Looking forward to adding this hombre to the Adventure Team!

          Muscle bodies are fun to work on. I am working on a Bulletman right now. The torso is kinda loose, gonna look for a tighter one at Joe Lanta.

            I finally got around to sewing these sets into these beautiful reproduction boxes I acquired on Ebay. My cutting was off on all three (corrected on a fourth box which I haven't started) but they still look great.

                Tonight I felt like doing a little work on one of my many Joe projects. So I dragged out my parts bin, and the Cots restring kits and restrung my Air Adventurer that I bought in pieces (and missing a few). I've outfitted him with a "new" right forearm and hand, and I also happened to have a spare abdomen in the box, so he got that too. Who knows how long this guy has been unassembled? The connectors inside were pretty rusted out, but the exterior rivets all look fine. I am going to put on a left hand as soon as I knock out the broken peg from his left wrist, and remove the hand from one of my arms not in use. Then he'll get a decent orange jumpsuit I have waiting for him. Here he is so far. The pics before in pieces are at post 71 above. Enjoy!

                  Looking good. I love seeing pics of old broken Joes brought back to life.
