Tempest Johnny! I see that Revell Me 109-G10 in your stash. The glass and landing gear legs are horrible. Best to replace those or make other arrangements for them lol.

Unless you are already aware of those issues. Then kindly disregard lol.

Just got the Hurricane and paints from my LHS and the two Revells from DrugMart.  Kind of bothered VJ didn't send the exact paints as listed. Needed aluminum. Such is life. Here's hoping the two Revells can get me "made" into the Monogram Mafia. I have sworn revenge against the Barzinis', Tattaglias', and Moe Greene.

Well those two are classic original Monogram molds. So yes, they will qualify you if you do as required with them. Wink

It's the WWII USAAF set. A few listed colors are missing replaced with Satin Varnish and two bottles of decal stuff. I had no problem with the other two sets I ordered. after the weathering set I want, I'll just order single bottles anyway.

I'm sure you will do a great job, and will fix the canopy issue.  Looking forward to seeing this build.!

Nice group of kits.  Looking forward to seeing these builds.  I would be pretty irritated if I bought a paint set and didn't get what I was expecting.  Fortunately, replacing the missing paints won't cost a fortune, but still, gotta wait for them, and pay more shipping.

That Revell Stuka was the last kit I picked up before the Mrs. decided my stash was big enough lol. I'm looking forward to building that one, but it has the same markings as my Lindberg. I might have to get some AM decals for it. :P

It's my 3rd set of VJ Model Air...No problem with the first 2. I like the paints and are a good bargain in "Bulk". Greens and Browns you can mix ...can't "mix" together an aluminum. Still got my old MM tho!

That Revell Stuka was one of my first builds as a tyke. Been waiting for them to re-issue it for 5 years. Finally bought a Hase "tankbuster" and 3 months later....Meh? I'm going to go with a "modified" "Where Eagles Dare" winter camo scheme.

Couldn't resist the Sprue Brothers half off sale, so these arrived in the mail today...

Going to be a bit before I tackle them.  Going to do more armor in my stash first.

Also got these tweezers from Megahobby for about $11.

Nice set.

Finally, I got a quick connect and holder for my airbrushes.  Comes with a regulator holder, so with the addition of a whip hose from Lowes, I now can adjust the air pressure easily.

Pretty happy with all of the purchases.  Told the Mrs. about the sale, and she said "fo for it".  Didn't have to hear that twice.

Happy model building!

Nice score from Sprue Bros. Dwayne. Yeah, I couldn't resist either and my Panther G should arrive tomorrow Big Smile. Been wanting to add a quality Panther for quite some time and was happy to take advantage of such a good deal. Good to hear that you have a supportive wife such as I do.

In the meantime I had these masks arrive yesterday. I ordered them from DN Models in Hungary. They got here in 2 weeks so, not bad. When the time comes to build these kits I'm hoping these make my efforts much easier. Especially on the Viggen splinter pattern. Always wanted to do it. Never wanted to mask it.Indifferent

I found myself a new toy at HL. Last one on a shelf marked down from $44.99 to $17.19!

Right in my price range.  :)

 

 

I was aiming for a B-25, but this is even better. I have never had the opportunity to build a Promodeller kit. :D

 

Oh happy day! Lol

And what I was waiting for the most, Eduard 1/4 BF110 Instrument panel (Limited edition). This was very very hard to find. These kits are extremely rare, not sure I must build it.

Nice kit for its age . . .  and I don't know of another one in 1/72.

Might need some new decals.  There's only a few required.

Nice hauls everyone.

A big box arrived at my door step today. Dragon USA had a moving sale and I could not resist.

 

Found a great deal on Ebay. Got a littel crazy with the  Trumpy Stugs.

Went to my LHS and found some markdowns, for some reason this month has been crazy good for deals all over .

Don't have pix yet but I just paid for three 1/100 scale airliners. One 747, one DC-10 and one 727. Old and rare kits I have wanted since I was a kid. Now I need a hanger to put them in.
