I wounder if the kit comes with the fish.

I wondered the same thing about the Ghidora-sized bald eagle perched on Missouri's 'B' turret....Big Smile

Thanks guys......you just keep adding to my wish listBig Smile

 

Are they available or coming out later?

 

Those ships ones are already out. But Meng seems to be giving out a steady flow of new subjects at the minute.

I told you there was going to be high intrest. Good idea Gam.

How about these? I don't have them, but would like to.

I'd have to figure out how to make toon water LOL

 

I am planning on the u-boat for this GB. Not thought about how to display it. The usual nice wooden base seems a bit to sensible.

Steve: Thanks! But thank Gregbale too, his post here really pointed out just how much interest there was. Thanks Greg!!! 

And some awesome egg ships there! 

 

Dutchman: I'm thinking six months since most of these kits are pretty simple. If there's enough interest of course we could go up to a full year.

I have a lot on my plate right now, but if it runs long enough I will jump in. I have been wanting to build one of these "fun" vehicles for quite some time.

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

Drifter: I've got more than enough interest by now to make this a go. I was hoping for at least a half-dozen people to jump in, we're at maybe three times that at least so far.

Hmmm, as Wayne said the 'Toon' tanks are sorta egg shaped so we could go with the egg motif here for them as well.

I'm thinking maybe Humpty-Dumpty as a badge???

 

Or maybe the 'Shirley, you can't be serious group build'???

 

The writing on the photo reminds me of "LawDog114" he has that quote under his name LOL.

A thought hit last night, so I'll toss this in the mix....

"The Great Eggscape"

Badge could be a toon car alongside a toon tank, with egg plane above, breaking out of POW camp fencing.

 
Couldn't be more perfect! You could build one of these....

Thanks, I get the strangest ideas that wake me up at 4 AM sometimes.

Could even use the POW/MIA guard tower as the background.......

I really like that one, Goldhammer! I like the vision on the badge.

Just finished putting up insulation in a spare room and have the wrappers from the rolls, so might look at trying to do something with reducing those.

The Panther arrived on Saturday, now to see about some appropiate sized "cat" markings for it.

 

Lol, sounds cool! 

Wonder why Meng didn't use the Panther instead of the Sherman for the pink kit with the cats around it???

given i have armor, boats, and planes, i will look for this to add to the weird stash.

speaking of weird am finishing up the Roden 1/35 HOLT 75 WW1 artillery tractor in civilian colors, red with turquoise engine, and the toons PZ-38. still have the 3 to weather and will PUT new builds aside until GB start. probably be lazy and do M-26 and M-5 as they are 1 color.

Kensar: It's certainly odd, I don't see any reason something in this vein wouldn't fit in.

Well, I've decided an 'art car' is not over the top enough, so I'm formulating another plan.

A previous build:

I am thinking: 'I am serious and don't call me Shirley' with Leslie Nielson 'Why so serious' with the Joker 'Yolk's on you' with Humpty Dumpty Just a few off the top of my head, we can come up with something better when we kick off in April. Anyone else have ideas we can toss them in too.

I would definitely lean toward #1:

But that's just me.

BTW, love that 'Trans-Um!' That's another one I've never seen before....
