This is something I pre-ordered way back when I actually had some money. That was about eight months ago and it finally came in. This is the academy 1/600 scale USS Enterprise. I originally ordered it hoping it had the beehive tower, but this is the later refit. No big deal; I'm still gonna enjoy building this:

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

Just got the Tamiya engraving set.  Stupid expensive at $30.00 a blade, but far and away the best panel line engraver I own and that is saying a lot.  I have a drawer full of panel line scribes. The d

Anyway, here is my last acquisition I got last year as a Christmas gift to myself. I didn't post it above because for some reason the camera could not focus on the box and all my pics were blurry. Thi

While I was at our latest mini-Hobby Day, the guy who owns the tire store next door to our Hall came by. He gave me this kit, free of charge:

The price was right! Even though I already built one; I'm still going to do this one too.

The Goodyear blimp, in its current configuration is 192 feet in length. Measure the length of the model and, as my 7th grade teacher said, "do the math".

This one would be the GZ-20 which were first launched in 1968 (according to Wiki).  They were 192' 6" long.

Old Model Kits lists it as 1/169th.  Doing the math, as Dick said, puts it about 1/171st so close to N scale but slightly smaller.

FedEx brought this in today. I’ve been wanting this kit for awhile and found one for a good price on eBay...

Yeah, this will be a cool project somewhere down the road. I’m gonna paint and mark it up from my first line unit. Should look good in Spring Temperate MERDC.

These are some recent gifts from a fellow modeler on another Forums. He sent them to me because he knew he would never build them, despite having them for many years. First is the old Hasegawa Japanese Fuel Truck:

Next is the tiny 1/72 scale Harley sitting in front of the 1/35th scale Harley box:

He sent that to me just in case I might want to try something in a larger scale. LOL! Since I'm building a 1/35th scale Patton, I'll build this too and try making a small vignette containing the two models. 

 

That's all I got for now.

Thanks Carlos! That is the second Isuzu truck I've gotten. I'm not sure how I'll make it different from the previous one, but I'm sure the difference will be obvious. The previous one was built some forty-odd years ago.

The postman brought this today. Got it off eBay for cheap. I’m planning on using him with my current M47 build.
