Those are cool John, congrads! 

Greysnake: Very neat! Sounds like my last order from HobbyLink Japan, two weeks to get to the US east coast and then seems it sat in NY for about a week before they got it to me. How friggin' long does it take to ship something from NY to Virginia? Heck I can drive that in a day or so... 

And I have to wonder if that's the same T-80 kit I built about twenty years ago? I was going through a box of scrapped models last night and came across it so it was kinda on my mind. 

 

I’m with you on shipping times. I had one item take a week to come from California to Arizona. Meanwhile I had a figure from China take six days to get to me.

 

That very well could be the same T-80 Dragon made four different versions of the tank. Think they all share the same lower hull along with other parts.

Man, there are some great deals being had here!  Love seeing what everyone is getting.

Here is my latest finds from the PAMS show in Plant City, Florida.  It was a great show!

I also picked up this tardis for my sister who is a big Dr. Who fan.

Nice!  I haven't done a big rig since I was a kid.  When are you doing that build?  I want to watch. 

Thanks,

John

There has certainly been a lot of great additions by everyone here. I love seeing this stuff.

I've made a few additions over the last few weeks.

Scored each of these off of ebay:

I was rather excited to get this to add to my now growing seaplane stash:

I finally pulled the trigger on the Fujimi Yahagi. Glad I did. Good looking kit that comes w/ PE railing & ladders:

That McLaren is an interesting kit.  If I recall, if you want to do all the engine details you have to leave the rear cowl off.  I had that kit but sold it on ebay years back when I was doing other hobbies.  Really cool car.

Thanks,

John

4 or 5 years ago I built the dual drive white freightliner.  It was the first model kit I built as an adult.  It was a fun build, the only part that gave me a hard time were the exhaust stacks as it was tough getting them to stay vertical.  Considering it was my first serious build you'll probably have an easier time of it.  Just wanted to give a heads up.

I hope you do a WIP.

Have fun with it!

Wow, cool stuff guys!!! 

Bobby: Got the same TARDIS kit but not the Dalek. More a fan of the original show but I did like the Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones was one of the few companions on the new show I liked so I can't complain! 

Joe: Whoohoo, that IJN Yahagi is the bee's knees!!!

This  just showed up in the mail, A Monogram B-25 "gun boat" (release date 1991). All the parts are in the original bags. Nice!

I'll start on this after I finish my MIG 15.

Won the auction for this on eBay today. It's the first boxing from 1980, which was a rebox of Esci's 1978 AJ-37 Viggen kit, with new parts to make the JA-37 Jaktviggen. I know there's a much better 1/48 Viggen kit out there now, but it's way too pricey for me. And I also know that Italeri has reissued the Esci Viggen, with all the parts from both versions in one box. But this will be a nostalgia build. I've wanted the original Esci kit since September 1990, when FineScale Modeler published two articles on the plane's splinter camo. (I have no idea why I've never picked one up before.)

In case anyone was wondering, I plan to put myself through Hell, and do the splinter scheme with masking tape. I'm up for big challenges these days.

These just followed me home this week I’m not kidding!
 
I know the Meng Shilka is better than the Dragon but I couldn’t pass it up at what it was priced at. Also bought a Russian tank commander that’s probably going into a T-80 I bought a couple weeks ago. Think the Shilka will be marked for East Germany.
 
Next was the Tamiya Pershing. I’ve wanted to build a WWII era US tank and didn’t have any in my collection. I’ll most likely be starting it pretty soon once I clear a couple in progress builds off the shelf.

I barely feel worthy with this Edhard 1/48 1940 French Campaign Aces set that I found for a great price on eBay...

No shame in that.  I’m a sucker for loose Eduard decals!!! I’d snatch them up too.

How are Eduard decals? I’ve never used them.

Honestly, they rival most aftermarket sets.  I use Micro products and have never had a bad experience.  They go down as well as the Cartograph sets IMO.
