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?

Beav, the Liberator alone is worth the $15.

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

I've done the Revell D model and that wasn't to bad.

 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.
