    Getting excited to move on to the next stage of the Jabba Build on Saturday. In case you missed it, we will be attaching foam to our lovable piece or worm ridden filth. I have attached a pic of the foam that we will be using along with a video testing Jabba's jaw.

    Hello gang.....
    As promised, I have a list of dates and times for additional Jabba builds. I am aware that we have events on some of these dates, but the build times are after the events. Please respond if you are a "yes, I can make it" and what dates you are free for.

    We are done with the foam, what remains is attaching the fleece to Jabba, spraying with Plastidip and painting.

    Sunday 4/30 at 6pm
    Monday 5/1 at 6:30pm
    Friday 5/5 at 6:30pm
    Sunday 5/7 at 6pm
    Monday 5/8 at 6:30pm
    Friday 5/12 at 6:30pm
    Sunday 5/21 at 3pm

    Thanks for your help.

    The weather was quite ominous today. However, it calmed down enough for Steve and I to get some more work done on Jabba tonight. Here are the results:
