Happy belated Birthday Steve!!! 

Cool balloon! 

And cool kit, not much of a Ford guy but that is a cool looking car and I agree with MM you can't go wrong with Tamiya!

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.

Happy belated birthday Steve.  Sorry, I'm slacking on the forums!  Embarrassed

That's a nice Ford GT40 you got.  The latest Tamiya news is that a 1/24 McLaren Senna will be out shortly.

FedEx brought this in today. I’ve been wanting this kit for awhile and found one for a good price on eBay...

Meant to say in my other post!

       I got to touch the Ford as there was one roped off and displayed at BlueBonnet Ford here in New Braunfels ,TX. Don't laugh! There's more Bentleys, Rolls Royces, Lambos and Ferraris in this little Burg than you can shake a stick at. Teslas too! Twice as many KIA Souls, too!

Thanks John. I have no idea of a diorama setting for a 5-ton. Aside from occasionally riding in one that was hauling more troops  than a deuce from point A to point B, I never saw what the 5-ton‘s role was up at HHC.

I remember when that one came out back in the mid-90's.  They were releasing all kinds of interesting things that no one else touched.

Nice pickup stik. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen that kit before.  
 
Three more armor kits that were on my want list came in over the past two weeks. The Zvezda T-35 is massive the hull length is 27cm/11in long.

It looks really good. It does reuse the lower hull tub and suspension from the Panzer IV from 1994 otherwise everything else is new. I do wish Tamiya would include wire for the tow cable and not string; I’ve never had much luck with it. There are two marking options included a gray 14th Panzer Division, Southern Russia 1942 and a yellow brown and khaki 5th Panzer Division, Central Russia 1942. The three included figures look pretty good as well apart from the somewhat oversized headphones.

Good to know.  I'd love one of those new Panzer IV's.

I have the newer Dragon versions of Pzkfw IV ausf  F as well as the older, but still, good Italarei kits.   Wow, remember those?  Italerei, fun spelling them, you could do three versions in one kit!  Aside from a few minor issues, they were great kits. It was 1974 or so.  I had just gotten my first apartment and my senior year in college.   Fun times!  Anyway, back to the subject.  I'll probably put this on the list, why not?  I'm a sucker for Tamiya models.  No, I haven't forgotten the new Border model kits.  I only have gotten their G version so far.

Thanks GS. I did see it on the back of the latest FSM, and noted that about the lower hull. I am with you on the tow cables, and i think those headphones are a Tamiya trademark.

They're just too unique to pass up. I was always impressed with the Puma since I was a lad. Had the Matchbox kit back in the early 80's.  If I remember correctly it wasn't that bad a kit.

Oh you guys are getting some real goodies! 

Grey, the T-35 is one that really appeals due to its land dreadnaught look! 

Chad, the whole 234 family? Sweet!

MM those are some really nice pickups. I’ve built the 234/4 it was a pretty easy built for a Dragon kit. The 75mm did give me some trouble with a lot of tiny pieces and the gun shield was annoying to attach. I have the Puma in the stash as well it took me awhile to find one and of course after getting one a lot more showed up on eBay.

Went to the mailbox to retrieve what I thought would be the box from the Secret Santa Group Build, but also found that my latest order from HLJ arrived the same day.  While I don't know what's in the Sprue Brother's box, I can share what I got from HLJ.  The first brings me closer to getting the aircraft to finish my 111th FIS build.  The Kinetic MQ-9 Reaper has decals for the 147th ATKW based out of Ellington Field, Houston, TX.  Just need a P-80 and a F-101B and I'll have all the aircraft in the stash.  Will need to make decals for the P-80.

The second is the 1/24 Fujimi Porsche 911 Carrera RSR Turbo #22 which placed 2nd overall in the 1974 Le Mans.  Bought the kit because I've developed a thing for Martini themed race cars.

The third kit is the Aoshima/Beemax Porsche 935 K2 with markings for either of the Vaillant cars. Unlike the K3, they didn't include window masks for this particular kit.  This kit will eventually become the Interscope 935K2, which would win the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1979. I may have to get another one because I really like the green Vaillant car.

Now if the decals I ordered from Wolfpack six weeks ago would get here.

Got this for a reasonable price on a facebook forum - decals are toast but I found a guy on ebay that makes them.  Always wanted these two since I was a kid - wanna talk about ejector pin marks!!! 

 

 

Thanks,
