Nice Eric,Hasegawa makes some nice aircraft.

 

Yes they do. I'v got a Zero(in progress), Frank, Raiden, and a Jill. The canopy is intense on that Jill. I'll probably have to spring for a mask

I have a couple of their Germans kits and they both look really nice, eyeing up to more. That Conquerer will be nice to see.

Been wanting it for a while. Does look nice, but still going to add the Accurate Armour upgrade set.

These are awsome pieces of kit, managed to climb inside one once and seen them in action at both ends. Impressive when you are watching the impact area and seeing the results of a battery firing 3 rounds a minute.

Most of you that know me, have known that I only build armor. No more. I've tired of the 500 plus piece kits and have sold off my more complex kits. I just don't have the time or patience. I'm slowly integrating aircraft. I've always liked Japanese aircraft, probably because they are so asthetically pleasing. So I've added 4 aircraft kits to make 7 in the stash with one under construction. Big learning curve, but I'm up to it. I've got a mix of newer and older. I'm not going to drop big bucks if I decide this isn't for me. LOL

 

 

 

I'm jealous.  I need to get some IJN and IJA aircraft.  I better start with a zero.  

 

 

 

The Otaki kits are older, but much cheaper. Pretty good detailing and decals. I have 3 other Hasegawa kits, and they are more detailed, but more expensive. I'm going to work on the Otaki kits first and hone my skills before I tackle the Hase kits

 

 

 

Hey Eric, miss seeing you around the forum! I think you'll enjoy those kits. As you said the Otaki kits are still great models even today, I picked up one of their P-40s a year or so ago. And Hasegawa aicraft are generally fantastic though their kits like the P-40 with the fusilage inserts for different versions can be fiddly. These don't have any inserts so they should be a fun and easy build.

What the hey I guess I'll jump in here. Some great stuff there guys, should be a forum of very happy modelers here! 

A few Christmas presents for myself:

Same kit as Bruce's:

From the 'Dirty Santa' give exchange from our IPMS club: 

Trumpeter German E-100 super heavy tank and HobbyBoss F8F Bearcat from Squadron's after Christmas sale.

And last week found HobbyBoss's P/F-80A Shooting Star on sale at our local hobby shop and couldn't resist.

Cool idea Tojo.

What I received for Christmas.

 

What bought a month ago.

I bought this at a swap meet a couple weeks ago for $10. I built it back in the 70's and wanted another swing at it.

And lastly, I bought this while browising an antique store a week ago and grabbed it for $10.

My wife says my stash is getting too big. Pfft! no such thing.

Tanker - Builder

Greg ;

  If my info is correct .Hornby Intl. revived Pocher . Not sure . But that's what I heard .  T.B.

 

You are correct, TB. It's limited and not much going on, or so it seems. I've been watching.

But still, it is oddly comforting to know that Pocher still exists out there in some form.

Thanks for commenting.

Steve: Very cool, I keep thinking about picking up the North Carolina but just don't know if I'd have the stickwithit to finish something so large esp with all the PE railing and parts. 

Bobby: Now that's a haul!

That is an average haul for me when I go to a show.  20-30 kits usually.  I'm like the King on the Island of Misfit toys....I see a kit, and I just have to give it a home.   LOL!  I've not been to the Pelicon show in Largo before, so I'm pretty excited about that.  And as always Modelpalooza is a blast.  Usually do lunch with JJ and PJ.  Great times to be had.

When I was in Vermont, we had one show a year and the vendors totaled 5 or 6....and that included me!  LOL!  They were great little shows that were held in Plattsburgh, NY or somewhere in Vermont.  Really had a good time at them.  But when I went to Modelpalooza for the first time!  WOAH!  It was a sensory overload!  LOL!  The show in Venice is a really good size one too.  Lots of vendors and some super builds!  I think the Pelicon will be just as big if not bigger from what I'm seeing.  The Modelpalooza and Peilcon shows are 2 day shows.  Going to try and do both days this year!

I see the Japanese liked their big tanks as well. Almost as heavy as the maus. And i'm sure you will love the E-100.
