Joe, I'm intrested in knowing how the Seiran and Shinden are. Those are 2 kits I've had on my wishlist for a while. I just love the modern Jets. I am currently building the Hase A7, same mold, different boxing.

John, cool sprint.

Nino, smart idea from your wife. She sounds like mine. She forbids me from touching anything deliverd from China until she's has had a chance to sterilize it. New lungs you know.

John I couldn't pass up the deal. If I had more money I probably would have bought a few more

I can't seem to find my thread on the Moebius 2001 pod to tack this on, so here is my latest acquisition, fresh from the mailman this morning!

It's designed to be used with Moebius' (nominally) 1/144 scale Discovery kit.  I'm not going to fit the Discovery with a pod bay; I just wanted a pod to lend a sense of scale.  And nope, not gonna light it!  The arms are flat PE, but maybe a thick coat of paint will make it right.

Hi,

I hadn't realized that its been several months since I posted anything here.  Over that time I kind of went on an early WWII Light/Medium Allied Tank binge.

Here's a Techmod T-70 Soviet Light Tank and a bagged Zvezda(?) T-60 Light Tank that I bought off eBay as a batch (along with a partially built/partially damage Leaphard Mk I kit).

T70T60

Here also is a Somua S35, a British Cruiser Mk II, a Valentine Mk IV, a Matilda II, an M3 Grant, an M3 Stuart, a Polish 7TP, and an Italian M13/40(which I guess is really not an allied tank, but I think some captured ones were used by Commonwealth forces)

S35MkIIV4Matilda IIGrantStuart7TPM13

In addition to those I also bought an old wooden Comet Destroyer kit, a Vacuform O-52 Owl Recon Plane, a Lexus Sedan and a Bolton Paul Defiant fighter plane.

Those are some nice armor pickups. The M13 comes with decals for one captured by Australians I believe. Built one last year there’s some fit issues on the hull that take some work with putty but it’s an enjoyable little kit.

Got a pretty good deal on this one on ebay.  She will be a fire bomber.  I ordered the bellytank from LoneStar models and the decals from Draw

Thanks,

John
