I have a "hobby shop" in my basement due to years in the military and traveling around I managed to "collect" more than I made. Due to a "change of seasons" I had the epithany that I will NEVER be able to finish them all. So fellow modelers, ask me if you find yourself in need of a kit or part. All are opened, Some have been started, some are missing some things, like istructions, some have extra parts. I make no promises, other than to send it to you if I have it. Doesn't hurt to ask.  I have race cars mostly, some armor, some aircraft and ships.

Email me. I may even get a list together. . .maybe .

All I ask is you build it and post a picture of it.

I have been on orders for the last week, so I have been away from home (and my computer). My wife called me tonight and said that package arrived full of paint. I am speechless. You have no idea how much that means. It really is the small things that make all the difference. 4000 miles form home doesn't feel so far when you know that the folks back home are behind you! Thank You Again!                                                               JOSH

   Hello... I don't know how you feel about sending a small part of your collection to Germany. There are a few soldiers, as well as, myself stationed over here that are finding a lot of things hard to come by/ very expensive here. We would gladly pay for shipping. Let me know......             MR. BROCK

Thanks anyways, I still think this is an extremely generous idea.  If I ever somehow manage to obtain ginormous amounts of model kits, I'll remember this idea

Hey! I think this is a great, not to mention EXTREMELY generous idea.  I as well support your idea of sending the kits to soldiers, so I'm not asking for anything like a big kit.  Its just that Im working on an Omaha Beach diorama, and Im looking for any suitable US figures, Infantry, rangers etc.. or other bits and pieces that may be suitable for D-day.  Just wondering if you have any.

Now what the heck is an eletromagnetic field? Isn't that what runs the Tartis????

Hey Rob, Trouble shoot this one bro...
I sent Bud an email Friday afternoon. I had to go do an errand & came back & couldn't get online againBlack Eye [B)] I reset the Modem several times & that usually fixes it the first time but didn't. I called my DSL provider on Sunday & they ran a test and walked me through it & still nothing so, they retested the system & it checked out at 100%
Ok, I check my connections & swapped ends on a couple connections & still nothingCensored [censored]Confused [%-)]

I called my father & he'd bring me an extra cord if he has it. Ok fine, I'll kill some time getting things done here in the meantime.   Well, I found & fixed the problem...

NOTICE!:

That got your attention eh? Anyway, I just wanted to tell you all that the give away went well. . .too well. I have a back log of kits to ship. Be Patient! I can only ship a few at a time, depending on size of the kit. I have all the requests piled up with names and address' and will ship out in the order I got them. May take a few weeks but I will get them out to you. I apoligise to you guys, but I sent the rest to the clubs of military modelers overseas and that taxed my wallet more than anticipated.

No, this is not a plea for money, just letting you guys know of the delay. I'll email or PM you when I get yours in the mail.
