I began work on the Panther from the 22 GB and have road wheels and hull nearly done. I will update and post pics as I am moving it overhere to work on with this year's stuff. I hope to have my son home Saturday and life can get back to normal.

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

Ohh!  Very nice.  That should be a excellent kit, have the Revell version and from what I've read, the Tamiya is a superior one.

Sorry, BK! I got it and had it all wrapped up and put with the tree! Just opened it last night, though!

 

Thank you, Santa, for the great kit and the generous extras! I love it!

I have been blessed with a two-fer this year, and I stoked for both:

Hasegawa 1/72 F-16CJ Fighting Falcon and F-4E Phantom

This will be a nice change of pace, thank you!
