Huh, that's funny, this same kit just arrived on my doorstep as well.  Smile

I also just purchased ICM's 1/48 Bristol Beaufort from ScaleHobbyist, which states that I should have it prior to Christmas barring shipping delays.

I've seen how the Kittyhawk kit left open the rear fuselage and I am curious if Tamiya closed that up properly? I have a small Academy kit, but I want this one if the exhaust and fuselage is done correctly.

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

And this, OH HECK YEAH!!! I've been waiting for a 1/35th O-I. The box is a foot and a half / 45cm long and the lower hull is 11"/28cm in length!

Thanks Tojo. I think this is the same mold as the '60s kit. Most of him is molded in black so it's hard to see detail inside the bags everything is packed in and I didn't really want to open stuff and take the chance of losing parts. There is a sprue of glow in the dark plastic parts that I think was added in the '80s or so. It's easier to see the detail on that and it looks pretty friggin' good for a vintage kit.

Nice haul there John! 

How does the A-6 look in the box? Back when I was a youngster we used to have them fly over all the time so I wanted to build one. Built a 1/48th scale kit back in the early '90s- I think it was Italeri but it was kinda mediocre- really soft detail. I hope this one is an improvement!

My Christmas haul

I am going to attempt to install lighting into the Super Star Destroyer and the Rebel Blockade Runner, but both are so tiny that I'm not sure that will be possible.  The SSD is 1/100000 and the RBR is 1/1000.

I'm totally jelly of all those, especially the blockade runner. Curious just how big those are and the lighting would be super cool.

And I got my wife a kit, which she has finished  :shocked: 

The kit was missing Astro.  I have a note out to Round2 for a replacement Astro

It's a QUICK snap-tite build - I think it looks awesome

The Blockade Runner looks like it will be about 4-5" long.  SSD won't be much bigger.

It's really nice.  Super heavy paper and great prints.  A bit more fun than the boxart book because there's way more context.

Thanks,

The rest of my order from HLJ came in today. 

I was waiting on this. Suyata kits seem to be really hard to get your hands on. I've wanted the kit Real G showed a few years ago and it never seems to come back into stock. 

I ordered a few more things to fill out the order. HLJ was having a special reduced shipping sale for Christmas so that did help out some. 

Robot dogs with assualt rifles and a robo-cat that can turn into a motorcycle. What could be cooler???

Picked up the cool VW as something for for either our show raffle donation or a Christmas present for next year:

Not sure if I'll build the Pagani or not. The kit is insanely complex from looking at the instructions. I may toss it into the club raffle next year:
