My latest acquisition was purchased in the hope that it would finally satiate my Red Dwarf obsession, but it seems to have had the opposite effect... I'm consoled by the fact that my rank has gone up considerably in the process: If my wife had any doubts about whether she was married to someone in the elite Nerd Corps, they went out the window as I walked into the room merrily whistling the theme music to the show while “flying” Starbug 1.
Knowing there might be a few fellow members of the corps out there who would appreciate this achievement, I thought I’d share here and post a couple of pictures.
