The Haul, or what you've recently bought.

Recommended Posts

Picked these up from Modelmania in Houston last weekend.

 

I just had to get this one.......had to!

and this jewel. The decals were SHOT.....................BAD! I ended up getting ahold of Dragon and believe it or not they actually had one set left and are sending it to me free of charge. I'm really looking forward to building this one as I've been wanting it now for 20 years and I think I've finally got the abilities and skills to do it justice!

I was over there for Hurricane Katrina clean up with the Army National Guard. All I can say is that................was an experience. How long of a drive is it from NO to Corpus?

I remember it being a long haul as well. I was in an M1025 HMMWV on that trip though. :smiley16:

Had a great time at the Pelicon this weekend! Actually bought a few kits too....picked up the Kittyhawk 1/48 "Twogar" TF-9J, an Airfix 1/144 L-1011 Tristar, a Monogram 1/48 B-29 (to convert to a B-50!), an old 1/32 Life Like GeeBee racer, and a 1/24 AMT Silhouette custom car (my favorite Hotwheels car growing up). All in all, that's more than I've bought at a show in a few years!

Here's my latest. I've been wanting these:

1/700 scale Soviet carrier Baku to go with my Kiev and Minsk:

Now all I need is the Novorossisk.

1/500 scale USS Enterprise:

Been wanting this for decades. Finally got it.

Watch for the Maddog Manufacturing Shipyards to start production again soon.

Man those are teeny models Mark. I really admire and respect these little guys a lot more than I used to after seeing some completed builds in person. Great score also considering you've been wanting one of those for that long!!

Thanks Joseph! They do have some tiny parts, but they are quite large. The Enterprise is a little more than two feet long.

This was our haul from Tol-Con this past Saturday. Spent less than $100 and had some great raffle luck. My Father In Law won a flight on the Yankee Lady B-17 as well. I credit my youngest daughter for bringing this kind of luck because I never make out like this. Grand total on kits we actually bought was ~$40. We had a super time and came home with some awards too!

Thanks! I'm particularly proud of the HE-111 and the JU-88. Got them both for $25 from one of the dealers. the JU-88 is my first Dragon kit, and I'm pretty impressed with the quality

I've got the Ju-88 / Fw 190 F-8 Mistel 2 combo and can see where you get the high quality rating from. I'm REALLY looking forward to that Mistel build!!!

I got this in the mail today. Only three more to get the whole bunch of 'em. (I built all of these as a kid so I'm anxious to get a second shot at them.)

I still have all my old kits from 30 years ago. Man they look terrible.... If I didn't have 20 years worth of projects unbuilt on my shelf I might consider rehabbing a few of them :)
