This is what my lovely wife got me for my birthday last week.  It should clean up the air in my workshop a bit.

Ben - You're going to need some serious shelf space for that Faun!

 

Steve - Breakout is an amazing book. Give yourself some time because you won't want to put it down!

I had a set of good books and gook kits from a dear friend who resides right here on this very forum.

Thanks Chad

Two books I've had my eye on for a while.

These are awesome kits as well.

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

Chad,

Thanks, I've got the Fujimi Martini 917 on backorder with HLJ.  I also have the Heller 917 somewhere with Martini markings and the Tamiya 935/78 with Martini markings (which need to be replaced).

John,

I had that kit for a while.  Basically the cars are the Tom Daniels Cop Out funny cars with Snake and Mongoose decals.

Got this for a reasonable price on a facebook forum - decals are toast but I found a guy on ebay that makes them.  Always wanted these two since I was a kid - wanna talk about ejector pin marks!!! 

 

 

Thanks,

John

Went to the mailbox to retrieve what I thought would be the box from the Secret Santa Group Build, but also found that my latest order from HLJ arrived the same day.  While I don't know what's in the Sprue Brother's box, I can share what I got from HLJ.  The first brings me closer to getting the aircraft to finish my 111th FIS build.  The Kinetic MQ-9 Reaper has decals for the 147th ATKW based out of Ellington Field, Houston, TX.  Just need a P-80 and a F-101B and I'll have all the aircraft in the stash.  Will need to make decals for the P-80.

The second is the 1/24 Fujimi Porsche 911 Carrera RSR Turbo #22 which placed 2nd overall in the 1974 Le Mans.  Bought the kit because I've developed a thing for Martini themed race cars.

The third kit is the Aoshima/Beemax Porsche 935 K2 with markings for either of the Vaillant cars. Unlike the K3, they didn't include window masks for this particular kit.  This kit will eventually become the Interscope 935K2, which would win the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1979. I may have to get another one because I really like the green Vaillant car.

Now if the decals I ordered from Wolfpack six weeks ago would get here.

MM those are some really nice pickups. I’ve built the 234/4 it was a pretty easy built for a Dragon kit. The 75mm did give me some trouble with a lot of tiny pieces and the gun shield was annoying to attach. I have the Puma in the stash as well it took me awhile to find one and of course after getting one a lot more showed up on eBay.

Oh you guys are getting some real goodies! 

Grey, the T-35 is one that really appeals due to its land dreadnaught look! 

Chad, the whole 234 family? Sweet!

They're just too unique to pass up. I was always impressed with the Puma since I was a lad. Had the Matchbox kit back in the early 80's.  If I remember correctly it wasn't that bad a kit.

Thanks GS. I did see it on the back of the latest FSM, and noted that about the lower hull. I am with you on the tow cables, and i think those headphones are a Tamiya trademark.

I have the newer Dragon versions of Pzkfw IV ausf  F as well as the older, but still, good Italarei kits.   Wow, remember those?  Italerei, fun spelling them, you could do three versions in one kit!  Aside from a few minor issues, they were great kits. It was 1974 or so.  I had just gotten my first apartment and my senior year in college.   Fun times!  Anyway, back to the subject.  I'll probably put this on the list, why not?  I'm a sucker for Tamiya models.  No, I haven't forgotten the new Border model kits.  I only have gotten their G version so far.

Is that the new Tamiya Pz IV GS, how's it look.

 

It looks really good. It does reuse the lower hull tub and suspension from the Panzer IV from 1994 otherwise everything else is new. I do wish Tamiya would include wire for the tow cable and not string; I’ve never had much luck with it. There are two marking options included a gray 14th Panzer Division, Southern Russia 1942 and a yellow brown and khaki 5th Panzer Division, Central Russia 1942. The three included figures look pretty good as well apart from the somewhat oversized headphones.

Nice pickup stik. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen that kit before.  
 
Three more armor kits that were on my want list came in over the past two weeks. The Zvezda T-35 is massive the hull length is 27cm/11in long.

I remember when that one came out back in the mid-90's.  They were releasing all kinds of interesting things that no one else touched. 

 

Yup! Trucks, AMTRACs, Self Propelled Artillery, Italian stuff.... lots of unique stuff!

Nice Carlos.  That one begs for a diorama.

 

Thanks John. I have no idea of a diorama setting for a 5-ton. Aside from occasionally riding in one that was hauling more troops  than a deuce from point A to point B, I never saw what the 5-ton‘s role was up at HHC.

Meant to say in my other post!

       I got to touch the Ford as there was one roped off and displayed at BlueBonnet Ford here in New Braunfels ,TX. Don't laugh! There's more Bentleys, Rolls Royces, Lambos and Ferraris in this little Burg than you can shake a stick at. Teslas too! Twice as many KIA Souls, too!
