Here's what fell into my hands at today's model show. I'm pretty happy with the selection and pricing:

Italeri Demag D7..................$5

Hasegawa 1/48 LTV with PE...$20

1/48 Hasegawa FG.1.............$10

I was looking for the Airfix 1/72 FG.1 but man I couldn't pass up the price the vendoe gave me! Big Smile

I got the LTV cause I read some fantastic reviews About it. The open side panel details are outstanding.

Building aircraft interiors is my favorite aspect of modeling so I aquired a 1/48 Visable B-17 and it came with ALL the AM  PE and 2 boxes of Verlinden goodies to upgrade it.  hoo Boy i love bending PE.  I didn't get much of a discount but I really wanted this stuff and didn't hafta search the interweb for all the parts, not to mention no shipping costs.

I also found a Arii 1/72 KI-67 "Peggy" the plane that wrecked my Father's ship in WWII. I have been looking for that one for a long time.

Sorry no pics . I haven't figured out the how of it since the photo host debacle.

 

 

 

 

 

 I'm finally retired. Now time I got, money I don't.

JJ try PostImage. It’s really easy, no advertising and it’s free. I switched to them after Image Shack wouldn’t answer my emails about some posting issues.

J.J., I saw that Visible B-17. I thought about it. Good thing I passed it by so you could get it.

I am gratefull Frank.  As it happened I was leaving the show and saw the B-17 at the table just before my exit. The kit was overpriced ,that's why it survived the show, but the AM stuff was a good deal and all in one place...I just had to have it. i'm working on it now and hope to have it ready for next year's show.

I saw it there too but it was just too big for my place.  Aftert my S.F. build I think I might just start my 1/48th Airfix E.E. Lightning.  It has several extras with it and since nobody wanted it except for someone who wanted a major discount, I'll just keep it and try building it.
