Like Buddy's weekend builds were, this GB and Gamera's Japanese GB's are a yearly thing for me.

It looks as though it will be a naval aviation year for me!  My Santa sent me the Hasegawa 1/72 scale EA18 Growler!

 

it goes perfectly with the Hasegawa 1/72 scale Tomcat and the Trumpy 1/32 Intruder that the wife and kids got me!

 

thanks Secret...Santa-Man!

To paraphrase George Burns, say good morning Gracie.

Santa found the Hasegawa 1/48 B7A2 (Allied code name Grace) Japanese bomber/torpedo aircraft from the late war period.  

But one of the elves must have a sadistic streak, for he tossed the PE fret in the box.

Thank you Santa and the elf, I'll try to do you proud.

Secret Santa and all 8 reindeer dropped gifts down my chimney...and it wasn't reindeer scat either! Gonna be a killer year here in the workroom for sure.

The ProfiPack G-2 came with wheels and exhaust. The G6 came with all the QuickBoost resin bits! This one is going to take some extra time for sure. With all this resin I'm going to do it up for the next contest, regionals for sure! 

In the pattern: Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! leaning out the list, we're down to a Monogram 1/72 SR-71 and that Tamiya P-38F/G to use the other nose art Exito Decal (in-flight for this one), & in keeping with MC's hydra theory I bought another F-5E to do in FROG camo! And I just got a Trumpeter 1/32 F/A-18F!

I opened mine this morning and I got an extreamly cool kit that had a note in it from Dodgy! Thank you mate! That has got to be one of the coolest kits I've seen and a great reintroduction back into the Armor scene. I'll start on it porbably tomorrow or later tonight after Christmas dinner at my daughter's house.

Thank you to my Secret Santa! I've gotten a brand new Sdkfz 251/1 Hanomag halftrack PLUS a brand new hobby knife set with 60 extra blades! Boy, I won't need a new knife for years! Very nice! Big SmileGift

Looks like Santa cleaned out the LHS.  The knife and blade set is a nice touch.  Great gifts all.

Glam - with last year's, you're on the way to an armored division.

Mongoose - he needed all 8 of them to haul all that to the tree.  That'll keep you busy for a day or two.

Wow, SS went above and beyond this year. So many stellar kits.

My SS shocked me with the kit I got. I have to admit I am a bit short of words with this one. Thank you SS, you nailed it. I can't wait to get going on this one. I've been wanting to go a winter camo German armor build for sometime now and this is the perfect candidate. I even get to try my hand a zimmeret as well. This is will be my fave for the this year for sure. Awesome!!!

Steve, I have this one in the stash as well. It is a super detailed monster of a kit. Certainly not one that will go together quickly. I can't wait to see this.
