Back in the early 1970s, one of the things I enjoyed about travelling south to visit Grandma and Granddad was the fact that they had one extra television station (three compared to our two, if memory serves), and on that station they received Huckleberry Hound cartoons. I don't remember why I liked that show in particular; perhaps I simply liked cartoons indiscriminately at that age. Anyway, I had a Huckleberry Hound shirt at one point, and here I am wearing it just a couple of days after my little brother was born in April 1976.
This Klingon D7-class cruiser is one of a handful of metal miniatures I painted for use in the FASA starship combat simulator back in the late 1980s. As you can see, my painting skills were limited to simply slathering the model in black, but hey, it kind of works for the Klingons, right?
