Well the postman brought this a few hours ago. Thank you to the gentleman from another site who found this at a local shop for a great price and offered to pick it up and send it to me! I love the “pa

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

Picked this up recently on eBay, perfect condition. Don't ask me what it cost. Seriously. Don't ask. You'll hate me.

More small stuff from eBay came in the mail yesterday. I’m going to use one of the side handles on my current Harrier project, but I’m making the face curtain rings from wire.

The rest can be used on any number of future projects...

These arrived in the mail. They will come in handy on my current Harrier project and many other 1/48 jet projects in the future.

Over the past couple of days, the mailman brought these two Zoukei Mura aircraft display bases that I had ordered.

First up is a 1/32 US WWII thru Vietnam era wooden carrier deck. Too bad that they did the colors wrong, as US carrier flight decks were never in natural wood. Pre war had Mahogany stain, during WWII they were stained Blue, and post they were Dark Gray and Non Skid Black depending upon the area of the deck. So I’ll need to repaint this one.

Then I also ordered this 1/48 US “Supercarrier” type deck, which is beautifully detailed!!! No changes needed, aside from perhaps the addition of an arresting cable, as they did provide one anchor point for one end.

and of course I had to do a quick photo with an aircraft in place....

Thanks Mark! I love these Z-M bases! Don’t know what I’m gonna use for my 1/32 F-4G whenever I get that beast finished though...

Okay, here's my latest acquisitions, all from the San Diego show.


First are my two raffle prizes. I got these for putting my tickets in the Miscellaneous box, hoping to get a ship or two. Instead, I got these:


full


Those were taped together back-to-back. Good backups for me.


Next were these True Color Paints:


full


I don't expect to be using these as they are colors for cars as you can see here:


full


Maybe someday I'll find something to use them on. However, I'll happily sell them to anyone who wants to shoot them on their cars.


I still have two other sets of True Color Paints that were won in raffles. None of them were anything I would use either, but I do still have them.


Moving on,. I saw this old classic and had to have another one:


full


I plan on checking to see if the French, the Canadians, Australians or British used these. That way I can add this to the collection under one of those flags.


The last thing I got for $30.00 was this kit:


full


However, there are two kits in that box. The previous owner had bought the two so he could open both bomb bays on his Stealth, that left him enough parts to build two kits, which are both in that box.  Now I can build two Stealth bombers and use the kit decals one one and the special IPMS Nationals decals on the other.

 


That's all for now. I have two other vehicles coming in soon I hope. I'll post them later.

I did a small job and after filling the tank with gas, I had enough to buy these two so I did

 

Both of these are Aoshima and in 1/72 scale:

Thanks Phil. The differences are exceedingly minor; I think the biggest ones are the weapons station on top. Some other minor external details too, but I won't know completely until I build them.

Yes, the Type B comes with the troops and even a 120mm mortar and gunner in the kit. That is most of the reason I picked it up.

Mark, you got some good stuff there! I’d be with you on the paints, but all the other goodies are great scores.

 

Made a run down to Andy’s Hobby HQ today and found this kit for a good price, so I could not say no…

4690-EAD2-4-D35-4-CBA-94-B4-D3-CFFF06-B8

then I got these supplies…and for anyone in the area, Andy’s is now carrying Gunze’s Mr Color and Mr Hobby paint lines…. Between those and AK Real Color like I have here, my acrylic needs are now covered! And a nice restock on Value Gear too!
