I got on upscalehobbies - very cool site, lots of auto and bike stuff.  I was looking to order a bunch of rattle cans after seeing a FB post about restock.  Tamiya flat black, semigloss and gloss black - very convenient.  Then I saw this and had to have it.  BTW service on this site is great - this is my 3rd or 4th order and Chris writes a personal note on every invoice.  Top notch - fast shipping too.

 

Thanks,

John

More bugs:

I did a quick snap fit of the kit:

The inner wings provided in the kit look lousy, so if I am going with the flying pose (which instantly captured my fancy), I'll need to make better ones.

Just picked up these.  I've been playing a lot of a WWI flight simulator called "Rise of Flight" lately, playing a career campaign as a Royal Flying Corps pilot stationed near Ypres starting in April 1916.  I was inspired by the DH.2 I've been flying in the game, and I also got the Fokker Eindecker kit because they were contemporary rivals.

 

I'll probably build the Fokker first, since I've never rigged a biplane before and it has a simpler layout.

Got several things lately,  the first my friend at my LHS gave me this as he was going to throw it out cuz it was un-sellable in it's condition,  all the parts are there, the decals will for sure need a coat of Micro scale decal coating.

the next four were raffle wins at the NordicCon show here last weekend,  major score!!

I got the BSG Conlonial One off the discount shelf at my LHS.   Aaaaaaa, more stuff for the stash!

A minor score at an estate sale. The boxes are beat up, but the parts are all there. All 3 for $15. I swore I wasn't going to add to the stash...But?

Ditto Even though it’s a very old mold, it still makes a great looking B-24.

 I will share these goodies that the postal carrier has brought in the past couple of weeks. I can’t call them a postman because it was a female type that brought the Valkyrie figures yesterday.

Bish, Valkyrie figures are top notch. They do a lot of post WWII and current era AFV crew figures that have been overlooked for too long. Definitely worth a look.

I just picked up an easy to assemble P-38L from HobbyBoss.

The two sides of the fuselage are nicely packaged in a plastic bag. Check out the  foam padding. Unlike most P-38 models, this one has the booms and tail wing and main wing all attached to the center fuselage tub. This should prevent the alaignment problem with the booms on other manufacturer's kits. This kit has recessed panel lines and no raised rivets like on the Revell kit. And yes, I intend to finish this in Bare Metal Foil.

That is supposed to be a nice kit Johnny! It has a few areas to be addressed, but easily done. And the biggest gripe on P-38 kits, the alignment, is covered.

Well, it pays off to squirrel away cash in your wallet for a rainy day... the other day a LHS got a new release in stock and had it priced most attractively and time wise fortuitously! (Shout out to Brookhurst Hobbies!!!)

So I went and picked this beauty up!

Not here yet, next week.....  Ordered out the Tamiya F4F-4 and the Squadron F6F-5 for our club's next group build----1/48 WWII radial engine single seat fighter.  Also picked up the Eduard PE set for the Wildcat along with a set of Starfighter decals.  Now to decide if I want to do it as Thatch's bird or a VF-6 off Enterprise.  The entire decal set is for Midway.

 

Also the club is hosting a swap meet tomorrow, so will see what I can pick up there, much to my lady's displeasure.

JohnnyK: Looking forward to seeing how that P-38 comes together. I like the Hasegawa kit but that does look it the alignment will work a great deal better.

SP: Love that M48, nice to see it getting a lot of love recently with new kits from Dragon and others.

 

Anyway, I decided to take the plunge, my first two Meng Toons kits. They've got a M5 Stuart on the way too!

I recently picked up at a hobby shop 2 interesting kits. the first is a rare-planes 1/72 vacuform XFM Airacuda (expect a new WIP thread on here sometime, I have never built a vac kit, and will be asking questions), and a M News (never heard of this company, must have been a small company in the 90s that didn't last too long) 1/72 P-51H, that appears to be a short run kit. picked both up in a buy one, get one free sale for $15... score!

Hi,

Although I really shouldn't be spending money on new kits right now, the other day I saw this Airfix model of the Type 45 Destroyer for what looked like a pretty good price, so I picked it up Stick out tongue

Type 45

So..... I got this email from Culttvman and they had this flash sale on Iron Man kits from Dragon.  Now two of these kits look like they have options for lighting them up.  Does anyone know of any light kits or if Dragon sells them?  I looked on the Dragon web-site and didn't find anything.  I briefly googled it and really didn't find anything there either.  Any info would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
