What are you hoping to get for Christmas?
Posted by Anonymous on Monday, December 1, 2003 10:45 AM
I'm hoping for just about anything Corsair! Smile [:)]

I've also been hoping for some books about early navy jets.

The thing I'm hoping for most is that my application for an internship at the National Air & Space Museum comes through!

What are you all hoping for? Big Smile [:D]

I am hoping for any of the Tamiya 1/350 scale ships (either the Yamato or the Bismark is perferred).

Escaping the season with my sanity and minimal debt as possible. Mind you a few molels wouldn't hurt. Some times it good to build something I may not have wanted to buy for myself. It's good to have change...

There's just one kit that I'd like to get: the Roden Bristol F2.b in 1/72. It sells for less than ten dollars, but I'll bet I don't get it -- nobody in my family would know a Biff (or Brisfit) if it fell on them.

OTOH, I have a strong hunch that my wife is getting me something expensive and modeling related. Smile [:)]

My big wish is for a M-113 ACAV. By this kit arriving under my tree I kill two birds with one stone. Tamiya's Sheridan is basic and I've wanted to build my cousins Sheridan from his service in Nam. With the ACAV parts I can easily modify the Sheridan. This will leave me a bear-bones 113 that i can build to represent the 113 i trained on at Camp Bullis, TX. As a post script to this; this Sheridan was destroyed in a VC ambush. My cousin was the only survivor.

No models, hopefully. I've got 87 unbuilt ones staring at me. Maybe a modeling assistant-like Elle MacPherson..

I already know what I'm getting. My wife and I set out budget and then decided to do our own shopping to make the whole experience easier on each other. I got FineMolds' 1/72 Jedi Starfighter kit and a couple of DVD's (T3 and Dragonslayer). I know I won't be surprised on Christmas morning but I get the satisfaction of receiving exactly what I want!

Merry Christmas!

Memeau.

Those Fine Mold kits are awesome, still think that doing everything in 1/72 is too small for my liking. Plenty of Decals for all and little paint needed, doing the R2 Units and similar is fun.

Especially for the Jedi plane, the landing gear is sooo small and fragile.
Soon will add the Tie Interceptor and Slave 1 to the other 3 Kits.

1/72 may be tiny but Slave 1 should still be pretty large at that scale. And the Falcon or an AT-AT would be beautiful! Do you agree?

Besides, I have collected kits in several subject areas (aircraft, armor, etc...) all in 1/72 and I look forward to some interesting size comparisons. Still, ya gotta love 1/48...

Yeah, the Slave 1 will be bigger of course so will be the price-tag.
Fine molds is NOT known for cheap Kits.

A Falcon would be nice, but shudder to think of the price.
AT-AT in 1/72 with matching snowspeeders might also tear a substantial hole in the wallet.

About the only thing I have asked for really is a digital camera...Really dont want anything else....same song and dance every year.
Diane: Chris what do you want for Christmas?
ME: Nothing,Diane...nothing I really have to have or cant pick up some other latter time.
Diane: Thats not fair or fun, you always get me and Heather stuff but we often dont know what to get you!
Me: Well if you insist on getting me something, anything not fishing related is fine with me....could get me a gift certificate to the LHS or something else small....so I can pick up some MISC odds and ends...
Diane: Thats all! What kinda choices does that give me?....What Kinda list is that?
Me:...Diane Christmas's were never very big on gifts at my house growing up...any extra money the family had usually was spent on airline fares to be with the other family....My sister and I might get a few small gifts....
Diane: Well things are different now...SO WHAT DO YOU WANT!?!
Me: Nothing,hun really I want you and Heather to have a good Christmas....
SHE Gets really frustrated at me about this...but I cant help it...just the way Im used to things being...and there really isnt much that I have to have or cant live without!

Enough money to finish the house!

And then I will be able to have all the budget for the kits I wanted to buy.

LOL.

A digital camera would be nice, but so would a list of reference books I haven't managed to acquire. Guess I'll see the guy in the red suit turns up with.

The only thing I want this year is time. Time to build the models I want to finish.

I'm surprised that nobody said, "I want a B.B. gun!" To be promptly followed by, "You'll shoot your eye out !"

Hope everyone gets what they want.

I made out a short list with a couple of models (Peugeot WRC; Subaru WRC) and a couple of books and gave it to the family, what are the chances of getting 2 of the same thing?

Really all I want for Christmas is the family at home, good weather, a nicely cooked duck meal, and cold champers!

No models for me. After my recent 'audit', I've got over 80 kits (out of 250+) that I want to have a go at... So, for me, it's going to be a cultural present, the recently released anthology of Jacques Brel, a Belgian poet/singer...

Lately, I surprise myself in missing my homeland more than I have ever done...

I'm hoping for the Polar Lights B9 Robot from the original Lost in Space. It will display nicely with my recently finished Robby the Robot. But then again, anything model related is usually a good thing. DVD's are always good too. Already have a few picked out.
