Good documentation is essential to the completion of an accurate model. After ordering the model, I bought the documentation. The model arrived today. The plan is to make an in-depth study of the p

Finally got around to buying the AFV Club M60A3TTS to go along with the M60A1. Looks to be a superb kit.

Couple other good scores at a Goodwill store. Found a Moebuis Ironman Mark III kit for $1.99 and a 1/48 scale Monogram B-26 Marauder for $3.99   The Ironman kit was missing the instructions, but I w

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.

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!):

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.
