Nice haul there Bobby. Now where you gonna hang that big BUFF.

Nice to see you got a couple of 251's there. Especially the Stummel. Will be interested to see that SD, makes a change from the Imperial ones.

 

Thank you sir!  LOL!  As for the BUFF....uh...I'll get back to you on that.  I'll have to find some room in the flight pattern that has 2 1/48 B-17's, 3 1/48 B-24's, 2 1/72 B-47's, 1 1/48 B-29, 1 1/72 B-36, and some 1/72 Russian bombers and a bunch of others I'm forgetting.  Whistling  Yes, I have a problem.  LOL!

Well, I took a roll call:

3 251's

2 250's

2 10's

How's that for German armour?!  LOL!

Man, that Republic SD is a hard to find and it's expensive when you find it.  I got this one for $30!!!!!!!!  That was another happy dance.  Embarrassed

Outstanding score Bobby! Very happy to see folks latch on to something on their bucket list at a bargain. Good on ya' my friend.

 

Thank you sir!  I'm still pretty stoked about it.  Feels good to cross something off the bucket list!  LOL!

Eagle, you did real good there! I'd be happy just with the Star Destroyer and the Long Tom.

I just won a 1/72 Airfix A6M2b Type 0 Model 21 Zero for $3.99. That puts a 4th Zero in the stash, plus BONUS, I get a free paint brush!!!! I'm really interested to see how Airfix engineers a Zero with folding wing tips.
BTW, folding wingtips always seemed a little silly to me, but I guess it made some difference. 
I'll be starting it next month.

That's a nice little win there MC. I'm interested to see how that Airfix version builds up.

Thank you Dom...I mean stik.  LOL!

I wasn't sure about the Long Tom at first, but the vendor is one that I have seen and gotten to know at multiple shows now.  He always gives me the "repeat" customer prices right off.  I got it for $15.  It was still sealed up and when I got home and opened it, I found it has a metal barrel!  I guess AFV sends with out with one?  If not, the plastic wrap was second hand.  LOL!

I couldn't pass up the Republic SD for $30!  It is a little to come by, so I jumped on it.  Bought the A-wing from the same guy for $22.

It's a change of decals from a 2011 new tool kit, which was discontinued.

Here is what I picked up a local show this past weekend. I've been looking to get my hands on the SBD-3 so was happy to see one sitting there.

No pic yet, but went to the semi-local LHS yesterday for some paint when I was out and about....Of course you can't walk out with just what you go in for.  Picked up Trumpeter's 1/32 F4F-3 (late). Looked it over when I got home...nice kit, but floored me no representation of belts in the office at all.  PE hinges and metal rod for the control surfaces.

Also got some various size dowel and rod to work the PE on my CV-6 kit later.

Ohhhhhh that's some awesome swag there Keyda and guys!!!

 

Bobby: My AFV Club Long Tom came with a metal barrel as well as did my M40 (SPG version of the Long Tom) so I think they include one with all the kits.

Hey Gamera, this is the first kit I've gotten that has a metal barrel!  I'm pretty excited about it.  It's another first!  LOL!

I think the only AFV kit i have with a metal barrel is the Nashorn, but then i don't have many of their big gun kits. But i can certainly understand why a metal barrel would be a good idea on that Long Tom.

Picked up a few more for the stash at Noreastcon today.  So many kits to choose from, so little money!  Lol. 

All in 1/48 F-105G Thunderchief, B-26 Marauder, F-117A Stealth, F-16.

 

 

Keyda, very nice acquisitions! I've been wanting to get a B-26 for some time now.

Nice haul Keyda.   Saw a 1/32 105G Weasel when I grabbed the 'Cat yesterday, but knew it was a monster since I have the 105 T-stick kit in 1/48.

Bossman, my boys and I built this for their soccer team coach (The Avengers!). I was disappointed with the amount if detail (or lack of). The canopy framing was a definite ball-buster.

Keyda, Love to see the F-16 ADF. I was a crew chief on these early in my military career. Have some unit decals to build this in 1/48 for my tail number and 1/72 for our 2 seat B-model.
