Kit of the Day

     We've seen on this excuse for a blog the lobster kit, the roach kit, and the Sasquash kit. Next up is this swell ladybug kit from Heller. Heller is a French model company--perhaps their only model kit company--and I assume coccinella means ladybug in their tongue, although it looks Italian to me. The finished bug measures 4 3/4 inches and the kit includes 2 colors of paint (presumably red and black), a paint brush, and a tiny tube of glue. The eBay seller wants $18 for it and I believe I put in a bid. If I win I'll assemble it and put it on the rose bush out front. Imagine how the aphids will react to that.
