Chad,

Thanks, I've got the Fujimi Martini 917 on backorder with HLJ.  I also have the Heller 917 somewhere with Martini markings and the Tamiya 935/78 with Martini markings (which need to be replaced).

John,

I had that kit for a while.  Basically the cars are the Tom Daniels Cop Out funny cars with Snake and Mongoose decals.

I had a set of good books and gook kits from a dear friend who resides right here on this very forum.

Thanks Chad

Two books I've had my eye on for a while.

These are awesome kits as well.

Ben - You're going to need some serious shelf space for that Faun!

 

Steve - Breakout is an amazing book. Give yourself some time because you won't want to put it down!

This is what my lovely wife got me for my birthday last week.  It should clean up the air in my workshop a bit.

Cool stuff guys! Love that BIG tank transporter Ben and that's a nice spray booth Scott.

 

And despite the air flow I'd still find a way to get paint all over the flower and vase... Stick out tongue

    That Faun is a real nice kit, had one about 80% complete before a curious kitty and my bad temper put an end to it. The kit is long but actually not real wide so shelf space shouldn't be to bad. If I recall be careful around attaching the cab and structure to the frame....somehow mine was not exactly square and it was troublesome. Am gonna build it again as I have a replacement in my stash.

we're modelers it's what we do

Nope, but I may get a flower pot to distract the cat.  He thinks this spray booth is a new cat bed.

Just picked this up at my LHS.  Nice kit very detailed. Just the same as their F-18F I just finished that is tha same scale and assembly type,  it says it's kind of a snap together but I glued everything and you would never know.

Gave myself this one for Christmas.  Image from Scalemates cause the grandkids wrapped it up before I could fondle it.

Thanks Keavdog John, kinda getting my feet wet as a car modeler. I'm thinking about building the thing up as a Road Warrior type after the bomb vehicle.

Hi; ArmorNut!

 I had that kit and built it in a jig I use for scratch building ships and buildings. I had no problems keeping it square.

Gamera: Good luck with your venture into car modeling.

John: That is a good choice for your Christmas present. Hope you really like it.

Mopar Madness: That is a heck of a haul. Maybe I will have to send an osprey your way to add to it. Technically you wouldn't have bought the kit. Stick out tongue

Thanks GoldHammer!

 I had a Marina Rental Boat Customer that had a Three door and I couldn't remember which year it was. I was surprised. I hadn't up till then ( 1995) Seen a Suburban with two doors on one side and only one on the driver's side. Seems to me it was safer to get in and out of if you were a passenger in heavy traffic spots. You had to get out curbside!
