Just dropped some serious change on two kits I don't need, but had to get them. Apparently, Model Factory Hiro (MFH) has dropped their Ferrari license and will not be producing any more red cars in 1:20 scale. Thus I had to go to a source that must remain nameless because you cannot get the product from the primary sources. I now have in my possession a 1968 Ferrari 312 and the 1961 156 sharknose. Gorgeous kits both. Mixed media with a ton of white metal parts. Glad I got a pin polisher earlier this year. I am going to need it to work on these pieces.

You should post to the "In progress" thread when you start one of these. I'd love to see some more automotive builds on here!

Hey all! I finally have something to post here.

This past Friday we had our Distressed Kit Auction at my IPMS meeting. This is our semi-annual fund raiser for the club and it is a very popular thing with all members. I was able to bid on a few items and got them for pretty good prices!

Anyway, on to the loot.....

One thing I got that I didn't take pics of is a small air compressor that I won in the auction. .I plan on donating it to the St. Crispin's Irregulars of which I'm a member as well.

The models I got were as follows. These first boxes show why we call this the "Distressed Kit" Auction. The boxes are not in the best shape, but the models inside are intact:

And the Piece de Resistance (for me anyway!):

I'm gonna have fun next year!

I've heard that is an excellent kit. I think I saw it built when Jim Wechsler brought his into our AMPS meeting some time back.

The kits were from an exchange and the SOTAR was from my family. :smiley4:

On Saturday, just as the great blizzard in the south suburbs of Chicago was starting, I was in HobbyTown USA. I found a must-buy at retail, which I gladly paid. AMT has reissued the USS Enterprise Bridge kit ... again ... but this time with the three missing sidewall segments, upgraded figures, and vastly improved decals. I have a shelf queen project that required scratchbuilding the missing wall sections, and these new parts will save me the trouble. :D

 

Now all I have to finish are the other projects in line ahead of this one. :smiley24:

Oooo.. that Sea Shadow looks cool.

 

That kit is a real pain in the butt! I got one at a Walmart on clearance years ago and the fit gave me fits. I bought another one a few years ago to try again and the same fit issues arose. Cool looking ship though.
