My wife unboxed the package and wrapped it - under the tree.  She is very excited about the model so I'm on pins and needles waiting to open it!

Thanks,

John

I know John. My wife can't wait to see what she wrapped for me. She said I'm going to flip out.

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

My SS sent me a doubleheader! Say this like the count on Sesame Street...Two, two gifts to open Yes can't have one without the other it says. Hmmmm some mystery and anticipation!

In the pattern: a dual build of my KittyHawk F-5's.

I get to wait till Saturday afternoon to dig my gift open.  On short vacation at the coast.

But will be looking in to see what Santa brought to everyone.

GA, very cool. Those are super nice builds. You will definitely enjoy putting it together.

My SS got me a very cool SU-152 Soviet Heavy Howitzer. This was certainly not one I had on my radar as I've never even heard of it. But, I am super stoked to build it. It's very cool over the top monster typical of Soviet big boy toys. I will be locating up some Soviet tank crewmen to man this thing and I have a small dio in mind. This will be fun. Thanks SS.

Oh yeah that heavy howitzer looks cool. German Armor that Corsair's a great model :-)

My favorite part of these is building something different! My SS got me Tamiya's Panther PLUS the HobbyBoss Tank Crew!

I haven't built a tank in 5 years. This will be a great addition to my display shelf. 

In the pattern: a dual build of my KittyHawk F-5's.

So the kids got done with their gifts and it was time for dad to go back (many years) to his childhood and open the SS gift.  And what was it you ask?

Finemolds 1/48 Ki-15-L "Babs"!!!!!!!!!!

OK...so first, I have never put a Finemolds kit together, second (and I'm not kidding), I was getting ready to start doing WWII Japanese aircraft!!!!!!  I have not done any Japanese aircraft and this was PERFECT!!!!!!!

I'm already researching the colors I'll need, the history behind it....MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Thank you Santa!!!  You rock!

Nice haul guys, I love watching everyone getting gifts.

GA, I've never built that kit but always wanted one. I hear it's a great one.

Bobby, Oh man! a Babs! how cool is that.

BK, I've been eyeing a Soviet SP gun.

Mongoose, if you do as well on that Panther as you do on your other builds, it'll look great.

This is what one of my SS's gave me. SWEET! I HAD this on my wishlist, I just removed it!

Thank you SS!

Looking like Santa scooped the cream from the top shelf of the workshop.  Going to be an interesting build season.
