The price might be down to them being starter sets. Ye, i would opt for the Hase kits.

I picked these up today off the local barter app. I thought was doing good for $10 for everything but then I realized the B-24 interior had been started and this person liked Testors Orange glue even more than I do. Any suggestions for easy removal or is it just time to start sanding? Mostly the windows they did I am worried about...

and THAT................looks like quite the handful. You're gonna have to let us all know when there's a thread on this bad boy.

 

When I get around to it I'll post it in the armor section.

Do you think that would count in the German armour GB.

Just a thought Big Smile

 

I think it could be but I got a diorama already cooking in my head evolving a armored engine. Plus I know next to nothing about the subject so a lot of research needs to take place.

I received my latest order from Sprue Bros.

For my stash.

I still love the Zero. 1/48.

F-16 trainer, and of course you can't have modern air collection without an A-7.

And a few things to sling under the wings for the moderns I'm getting

I still want to get a few more like the F-15, 18, and other countries. I'll then work on the SU's and MiG's.

I saw that Airfix is coming out with an F-15 and 16, both A's. I'm going to pre-order them soon.

Two builds I promised some guys at work that I'd build for them.

This box is bigger that the 1/48 Zero.

I remember building that black widow with my dad as a kid it's one difficult kit but can be wrestled into a beauty.

Sounds like a nice plan, and yes, i think that deserves the time for research.

Pre-ordered both of these bad boys in November of last year.

 

 

 

Those look choice Joe. It will be cool to see you put those to use in some more garage settings.

Superb haul Steve. It truly warms my heart anytime I see someone acquire a bounty of 1/72 aircraft. HeartYes You have done well my friend.

Picked these two up at my nearest LHS. First armor kits purchased in a long time. 

 

 

There is a model swap meet going on this weekend so hopefully I'll get some deals.

Looky what the nice FedEx lady just handed me!

Got them on sale from Dragon USA. The figure sets were free as part of the sale,  shipping was free and got a $10 Dragon money credit, total was $114 for the entire order.

This same 251 Flammpanzerwagen I wanted to buy at a local show not long ago but the seller refused to lower his $45 price. I'm glad I passed him up.

Great haul PJ the Dragon 251/16C was my first build back to the bench it's like all Dragon halftracks kind of a headache to get lined up. The figure kits are also really nice and have them in the stash as well.

Great deal there PJ, those figures alone alone are about £70 or £80 worth. Don't blame you for not lowering your price on the 251. You can still pick up the 2004 boxing for plenty less.

Nice haul on the German armor and figures PJ

Got this in the mail today - building the 1/350 minicraft titanic and saw these online and couldn't resist.  They look great though pricey.  BTW - I am not a ship builder Indifferent

Thanks,

Only 4 months late but the 2nd Airfix Phantom is on the shelves.

Pick ups from yesterdays swap meet in Tucson, AZ. 

Was pretty excited to get the Dragon Tiger as it was well below what it usually goes for. I know the Tauro A7V isn't a great kit and made obsolete by the Meng version. But I remember seeing the ads for the kit in the old Squadron catalogs and always wanted one for some reason. 

Now if I can manage to finally find time to sit down and actually work on something.

Good haul there. The Dragon Tiger and figures are gorgeous so this one is out of the ball park. The Tamiyas are older kits but are still great little low parts count kits. On the Mk.4 if using the  kit's schurzen, sand the edges at an angle to thin them to look more to scale. This is an easy trick and will look just right when assembled.

The Tiger didn't come with the figures. Planning to order just the figures soon.

The Panzer IV was a nostalgic purchase for me. It was my first expensive model purchase as a then ten year old and when I moved from playing war with my models to just displaying them.

Thanks for the heads up on the schurzen. Not sure if I'll add it to the model yet or not.

Sweet scores on the Armor PJ & Greysnake. I've really got to take advantage of Dragon sales more often.

John, That decking should sure make your Titanic pop. I've yet to build one of my ship kits yet and I've eyeballed some wood deck sets for them. May have to try a couple when the time arrives.

Those are sweet Andy. You can absolutely never go wrong with a new Corsair, or Hellcat for that matter, kit in your stash.

Acquired a couple of new additions.

Got to travel and visit Hobby Lobby last week. Picked this up with my 40:

Found this gem on ebay. Completes my collection of HS 129's with all the different gun packages:
