Picked these guys up this week. The SU-76 came from my nearest and also best LHS and the St. Chamond off evilbay. 

SWMBO is going to be out of town for a week so hopefully I'll get some bench time in.

It's a beast and does contain a metal barrel. Just need to get Friul E-100 tracks and she's good to go onto the bench!

Mopar, that is a great batch of Airfix kits! I want that Ready for Battle set and would not mind the Merlin.

 

As for me....

this came in the mail during the past week....

 

 

A big shout out to Blacksheep 214 for grabbing this from that Craig’s List clearance at an incredible bargain price. Not to mention the Eduard cockpit set that the CL seller included. Thank you Tom! I owe you one! Big Time! 

 

Wow!!! One of these days I'd really like to build one of these. VERY cool score Carlos!!

Reviews are not great on this kit, but it looks nice. Came with some Verlinden AM detail stuff which I will not use. Anybody?

I got this plane because I was screwing around on Ebay, getting back at snipers. I still have not forgotten!!! Again, if I see a certain kit being built on this Forum...'Now I am become Death, destroyer of worlds'..JR Oppenheimer. I hope everybody knows I am kidding...This Bf 109 came with a AM IP, spinner and a badge of some sort. Again I dont' do AM so if anybody has a use for them...?

I just pulled the same one out of my stash to work on it.  How much you want for the Verlinden?

These arrived at the post office yesterday from Japan. I knew nothing about them so asked the wife.

 

Turns out she ordered them for Christmas and just plain forgot. I love Christmas in January!!!

They are different sets. The E-100 are wider than the lowe

There is also some AM barrels already out for this beast...

I build the A-10 when it came out in the early 90's and the A-1 is on my wishlist.

Hello everyone,

I picked up these 2 kits today at a local show, and wanted to test out the photo image site I picked to post photos.

I received a few more,

This one I picked up at our Hobby Town the other day. Now it's off the wishlist.

Also I went to Mopar Madness' home last night for dinner and he gave me these from his stash. THANK YOU Chad!

Another one off the wishlist.

I was looking for some decals or masking for my Academy 1/72 F-35 and finally found that Wolfpack decals made them for the 1/72 Academy and the 1/48 Kitty Hawk offerings. I ordered the 1/72 set on Sunday and they arrived on Thursday.

I really didn't want to mask all that RAM tape.

You better check the content's of that box. The kit may be damaged.

If the box art is to be believed, that plane is "Slightly used" .......

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

Wow, that is TERRIBLE box art!  What was Airfix thinking?  I am surprised I had not read any Internet furor yet on the subject. There was some complaining of a GWH Sukhoi box art showing an F-15 going down in flames, but the subject of the kit was intact.
