My latest acquisition came from my better half

There is actually a neat story behind this one.  I actually already had this kit in the stash. Of course, my wife didn't know that.  There is a place here in the Houston area called Nellis Auctions (there are only 2 other locations in the US) which sells stuff really cheap.  I believe the stuff is largely sourced from Amazon returns.  She got this $100 kit for $27.

I was concerned that it might have been missing some parts or decals, but I opened my original boxing and compared.  Everything is there.  So my wife scored a great deal.

Yes but an old shape! I just wish they would bring their moulds up to date! I'm just researching to find how I can make it interesting! We don't see them on the streets here anymore!

Nice Tony.  I've always thought the Leopard was an awesome looking tank.

Thanks,

John

Tojo,

That Leopard is so hot off the presses the plastic must still be warm!  Mmmmmm... the smell of warm styrene.

According to Tamiya it's all new tooling.  So I have an excuse to get one. Big Smile

Hi Everyone!

       Well, it's me! (No Pichurs). Got a new for me kit. A ENTEX 1/16 scale Ford Model "T". It's the one with the squared off rear deck so it doesn't have to be built as the "Turtle" deck. It looks like I will have fun with a car for a while. Oh! I am still working on the John Player car in 1/12 but only when I don't shake to much. Not had to many of those days and I used them up on the three boats I had in the que!

       I am making very slow progress on the "Charles De Gualle" It turns out the plastic on one side of the ship is thinner and more brittle than I thought. A few small problems, but I am taking it slow to make sure I don't destroy it! I spent the last three days cleaning up the parts on the Ford! Just about ready to start. Plastic looks good and the tires are in great shape!         T.B.
