Awesome haul John!

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.

This is my Christmas haul.

The Walrus I knew I was getting. I bought it a couple months back for myself for Christmas and my wife paid me for it and put it under the tree.

I got the USS Freedom LCS for my SS gift.

And when I delivered the Gee Bee to my friend, he gave me the Z to build, plus he gave my his original of Rommel. He is Lonnie Ortaga, an aviation artist.

Thanks GoldHammer!

 I had a Marina Rental Boat Customer that had a Three door and I couldn't remember which year it was. I was surprised. I hadn't up till then ( 1995) Seen a Suburban with two doors on one side and only one on the driver's side. Seems to me it was safer to get in and out of if you were a passenger in heavy traffic spots. You had to get out curbside!

Gamera: Good luck with your venture into car modeling.

John: That is a good choice for your Christmas present. Hope you really like it.

Mopar Madness: That is a heck of a haul. Maybe I will have to send an osprey your way to add to it. Technically you wouldn't have bought the kit. Stick out tongue

Hi; ArmorNut!

 I had that kit and built it in a jig I use for scratch building ships and buildings. I had no problems keeping it square.

Thanks Keavdog John, kinda getting my feet wet as a car modeler. I'm thinking about building the thing up as a Road Warrior type after the bomb vehicle.

Jeaton John: Ohhhhhhhh love that Zero, it's a friggin' gem of kit. You'll enjoy this one!!!

Gave myself this one for Christmas.  Image from Scalemates cause the grandkids wrapped it up before I could fondle it.

Just picked this up at my LHS.  Nice kit very detailed. Just the same as their F-18F I just finished that is tha same scale and assembly type,  it says it's kind of a snap together but I glued everything and you would never know.

Does the flower and pot come with it?

 

Nope, but I may get a flower pot to distract the cat.  He thinks this spray booth is a new cat bed.

    That Faun is a real nice kit, had one about 80% complete before a curious kitty and my bad temper put an end to it. The kit is long but actually not real wide so shelf space shouldn't be to bad. If I recall be careful around attaching the cab and structure to the frame....somehow mine was not exactly square and it was troublesome. Am gonna build it again as I have a replacement in my stash.

we're modelers it's what we do

Cool stuff guys! Love that BIG tank transporter Ben and that's a nice spray booth Scott.

 

And despite the air flow I'd still find a way to get paint all over the flower and vase... Stick out tongue
