I did that all the time to my brothers models

He was a meticulous model builder.....his models were pristine. Mostly plans but some ships. He had made maybe 50 plus. He was 9 years older than me and off to college. I was 9, 10 or 11. I started with just one....surely he would not notice. Blew it up with Black Cats...M80 here or there. Then one by one I would go up and grab one. Tie a firecracker below the wings to the cockpit......was very cool and ended up blowing up easily 25 of them even setting some on fire.

I think he thought my mom threw them out or something.
