Well, yesterday after AMPS here, it was the monthly visit to Andy's where I picked up these items

 

 

The Egyptian and Syrian Sands will come in handy on some future projects, and one can never have enough Value Gear... ;)

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,

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.

Well, I finally pulled the trigger and bought something from my new job, now that the employee discount has kicked in. These kits came in during the week, and I just couldn’t say no. Sort of an early birthday present from me to myself ;)

I needed more figures like another hole in the head but hey, you only live once...

'Rice ball yesterday, rice ball today, rice ball tomorrow...' 

'Shut up Dmitri and poke the mine with your rifle!' 

And I love Sprue Brothers flash sales. They're worth watching if you like military kits. I picked up this Dragon late Tiger I for half price.

Thanks Gamera on my 'woody' type purchase, but you've got a lot of fiddly painting coming up with all of those figures!

Thanks Pat! I think I can handle the figures. But I haven't done a horse in years so that's gonna be interesting......

Any more I just can't seem to get my fill of these 'classic' 60's and 70's muscle cars. These kits joined me back in May.

The Revell kit and the Lindberg were both Ebay finds. The Revell I paid too much for as it was the second one I bid on. Most of what I was running across was open boxes and some were partially started. I won't buy an Ebay kit that isn't still sealed. I got stung a couple of times. The 70 Chevelle was LHS find.

It's all about classic cars now!

Why can't I find the "Any" key on my keyboard?

This Revell Old's 442 came home with me a few weeks ago during one of Hobby Lobby's 40% off sale. I can never seem to resist. It features options of either auto or manual transmisions, and provides both transmision cases, shifters, center consoles, and floor pedals for either. Also a couple of choices for the rear axle.

Lat Friday stopped at Hobby Lobby and it was another 40% off sale. Took a picture of these two kits sitting on the shelf. Texted a friend for his opinion of which I should get. He replied that at that sale price, get both! Dang him! Now this picture of them sitting on the store shelf is no longer accurite as they now sit here next to me on the floor by my desk. With one of them being yet another Chevelle! Can't get away from the Chevelle fever! And the idea of a purple Impala SS seems interesting...
