I've acquired a few sweet gems over the past few weeks.

First and foremost is a pair of these very nice 1/72 AMK Kfir IAI C2/C7's. First time I've picked up an AMK kit and a glance inside the box is quite impressive. The armament alone is extremely nice.

And then there are these wonderful additions:

What's the deal with the missiles and bombs?  3d printed?  You're going to like that B-25.  I miss accurate miniatures  

Thanks,

John

I believe they are side molded. In either case, it's a beautiful piece of engineering as there are no seams with this method. Stunning really.

No doubt about Accurate Miniatures. They certainly were a high water mark for kits in their day.

That's a nice haul.  I especially like the super corsair.  I'll have to keep a watch for that one.

Hi, my name is Bobby and I have a Bandai problem....LOL!  Couldn't help myself.  The guy from Cultvman hooked me up.  The Tu-22and Hetzer were from other vendors.  Everything else was from Cutltvman.

 

 

 

Bobby, 

Wow! If having an Bandai problem is a problem, then I want a Bandai problem too! Very nice haul!

just aquired these two this week,  I want to try to the same thing to this corsair as is in the April edition of fine scale.   the A-wing fighters, well they are Ban Dai and just fantastic little models,  getting addicted to them.  40% off Hobby Lobby coupon is fueling it.

Guess I am getting back into armor now thanks to recent sales over at Sprue Brothers, Squadron and Dragon and a figure kit from E2046.

The King Tiger arrived today to join his Porsche cousin. The others came in over the last few days.

 

Having trained on the F-4 MB seats during AME school, I couldn't pass up this kit. The figure kit will be used in a planned dio with another liked dressed figure but as with the first one I'm working on, it will be painted in a full body suit one black this one maybe in a gloss cherry red suit. 

A size comparison between the 1/10th and 1/48th seats.

Will have to try to figure out how to come up with all the data plate stencils for the seat. I'm hoping a Gru-7 in this scale is in the works

John - I've said it once and I'll say it again, you can never go wrong with another F4U Corsair kit. Good on ya'!

With that said, I just received my newest addition to my extensive Corsair stash. I've been needing a Commonwealth clipped Corsair to further complete my collection.

A couple manufacturers I've never built.  Both look nice upon initial inspection though I've heard the Salvinos Jr kits have some accuracy issues.  The Zlin Z-50 is AZ Models - I was inspired by the bigger scale build in Damaged.

Thanks,

John

I don't comment much on this thread, as I am concerned my jealousy will show through.  Devil  I do, however check it out every time I see a new post.  Nice hauls everyone.

We had a convention this weekend, and well....you know how that goes:

These are all used kits except the Airfix, and I am pretty pleased with what I was able to pick up.

Nice looking score there D. Not much of an armor guy but I walways wanted that Panther. The P-38 looks cool as well.

I got these today at the Dallas IPMS auction.

Mopar, Man City, Keav, Model Crazy, all you guys are getting some great acquisitions! All sorts of goodies!

As for me at our last AMPS meeting, which was our annual fundraising auction, I came away with some goodies as well...

 First up was a set of figures I had asked about from one of the guys. He said that he had them and does not do modern stuff, so they were passed to me, free of charge.

 

 

Now I can finish that Iraqi BMP that I have sidelined as envisioned...

 

Of all the armor kits that I had my eye on and bid for, this was the only one that I scored. The others got out of my price range too fast... it also included an Eduard PE set, so I am happy to get this one

 

 

And lastly these three aircraft... they were offered as a bundle... I only wanted the Storch, as I already had The Spitfire and I built the 109 last year...

 

 

 

 

So now, for the princely sum of $1, I finally have a Storch, another Spit, which has parts to do a Mk.VII, VIII, or IX, as well as alternate wingtips, rudders, and such in the box, so.... and another easy build 109F can’t hurt. I just need to look for decals now... and if not, I can donate them to the IPMS auction....

Nice collection there Stik, lok forward to seeing that BMP once done.

That 109 brings back memories, i did that way back in the 80's when i wasn't building to certain scales.

Perhaps later this year on the BMP Bish. I need to wrap up a few other projects first before I can resume the BMP. And yes, that Airfix 109F is a fun kit. I built one as a quick build 2 summers ago and it turned out just fine. I’m looking at my decals and books now, to about perhaps doing a different one...
