My armor stash has grown over the past bit…

first up I got a gift package from a friend on another site

A388801-E-7213-4947-B88-F-10-D476-B68-AA

AC9-F73-C9-A25-A-4712-872-D-36781-BBE668

Thank you so much John. I’m probably gonna donate a few for IPMS auction, as I already have them, but I’ve already ordered a set of figures for the jeep.

then I picked up these Verlinden Israeli items

76-D0-C28-C-372-D-4368-8091-D8-C45-B1103

and lastly I picked up these 

DF1-F70-C0-56-C0-463-C-BD2-D-C63-AFC923-

Sensational scores! You gotta love the old ESCI boxes! I love the artillery; I just wish that M115 was available in my scale too.

 

Looking forward to seeing these started!

Thanks Mark. I’m looking forward to building the M115 myself. The last one of those that I built was the old Aurora 1/48 kit with the M8 tractor about 50 years ago… I think that this one might turn out better… 🤔

Well, another eBay score has arrived. 

ECD0-D994-73-BD-4-E89-9-A73-476-F5280-FB

I had been wanting this kit for awhile.

Mark I'm looking forward to building this one. The Tigercat is such a hot rod of an aircraft.

Here I am very late in posting, but these are the last of the Christmas presents I bought with my Christmas money. They came in around the second week or so of February. The Stained Glass Windows here however:

They came in the first week of March..... just in time for my birthday! LOL! Those will be going into my Church that I'm building.

 

These are the models I ordered and finally got....

 

Aoshima JGSDF Material Carrier. This has two kits inside:

Fujimi JGSDF Mortar towing truck with a 120mm mortar included:

 

full

 

Pit Road/Skywave 1/700 scale JMSDF LST 4151:

 

full

 

...and finally this UM kit of the Swedish M-43 assault gun:

I also purchased a set of laser cut wood pews for the church as well but apparently forgot to take a pic of it. Oh well. 

 

 

That's all for now. The next thing I need to do is source some metal barrels for the Crusader AA tank; the kit ones are so deformed just from removing them from the sprues...

Nice scores Mark! Quite a wide variety of subjects! 👍🏼

Had a few more additions to my stash over the past week or so. For the jeep that was gifted to me I picked up this nice crew figure set

4-DFEC2-CD-29-EE-4994-A39-B-72432-E2-CA5

and for my one of my 80’s Cold War US tanks…

0-A2-C6515-FFBE-4-B31-BC83-4-DA56006-C91

Nice gets Mark. Since I really like the odd ball vehicles, I would really like to see what you do with the Material Carrier!

Some really nice looking kits in this thread. 

Carlos I see a potential Battle of the Bulge diorama with the WWII US Army figurines. How is the detail of the figures? I've seen a lot of MiniArt on Ebay and online hobby stores but never got any. I feel an investment coming on.

That Tigercat should be fun little build 

Beautiful kits Mark I too like those old box covers they bring me back to the days when I was a kid.

Tony, I’ve built several Miniart figure sets and I’m quite happy with them. The detail on them is pretty good, although they do tend to need some mold seam line clean up more often than not. They are better than my figure painting skills are in most cases. 🤨 What I really like about most of their sets are the poses- very relaxed and natural on their vehicle crews.

And yes, I kinda have a Bulge/Bastogne scene in mind with some of these figures, my new jeep kit, and some Dragon figures.

Here are three kits I purchased for myself about a month and a half ago.  The Monogram Stuka kit I started in the 80's as a boy.   I purchased the Revell kit essentially for the decals, the decals in the partially assembled Monogram kit being very bad off.  That said, I got the Revell Stuka at Hobby Lobby 40 percent off which means I essentially paid around 12 dollars for decals. (But they are the exact same decals from the exact same kit without having to pay for shipping so maybe it works 🙂)  I picked up the old Revell PT-109 and the Tamiya Panzer IV at a nearby hobby shop.  I am really looking forward to building the Panzer IV.  I have a Model Masters Panzer Gray rattle can just itchin' to be sprayed 🙂

Nice haul there Ed. So it sounds like you need a second set of decals for the new Stuka if you’re going to swipe the new decals for the old kit. Ya gotta love the classic Tamiya Panzer IV D. But on that PT-109, I do believe that is the new tool Revell release, and not the 60’s vintage classic from when JFK was president.

Ed that looks like a fantastic score! I'm really interested in seeing the PT boat get built since that is the new tool. I have the old tool one in the stash.

 

Meanwhile, here are a few things I got; most are birthday presents from friends.

 

Before I get to those, here is the last Christmas present I finally got.... just in time for my birthday three months later!

 

These are the Scale Model Scenery HO scale church pews:

 

full

 

Here is what they look like inside the package:

 

full

 

 

And now on to the birthday presents...

 

From my friend Albert I got this Roden Sd Kfz 234/4 Pakwagen:

 

full

 

Followed by:

 

Airfix 1/72 scale Sherman Firefly that he gave me also:

 

full

 

My other friend Humberto gave me this Dragon LCM and Sherman 2in1 kit:

 

full

 

And that is all I got. I don't expect to get anything more the rest of the year unless someone just gives me something; or I win a raffle with whatever tickets I might be able to buy at a show. I always try to buy at least one raffle ticket to support any club that puts on a show.

 

Thanks everyone! Now on to the manufacturing plant......

Carlos, I think I am going to simply build the newer Revell Stuka and place its decals on it.  I have no idea what I am going to do with the Monogram partially assembled one.  I am relieved that I have a new PT-109.  I thought it was older due to its box and packaging, but if its the newer one so much the better.  I heard old Revell Kits had bad fits.  I do not know that is just what I heard. 🙂 Mark, I am loving the Shermans that you added to your stash through gifts, especially the Airfix kit.  That Firefly looks neat!  I have no idea when I will get around to building the PT-109, I am working on a British WWI era "Tadpole" tank currently and had a very frustrating day trying to paint some of it yesterday...but I am learning a lot.  I would love to see your finished church with its stained glass and pews.  Also, very neat!  🙂

Nice stuff.

Mark, remember the Airfix Firefly should not have the bow gun installed.  There should be an armored plate over the location.

Thank you Ed! I'm glad you got the Tadpole sorted out. I am looking forward to seeing the PT-109 started, maybe I'll start mine when you do. I have a lot of small boats like that to do and I do ant to get them all finished someday.

Thank you Phil. I'm glad to see you check in! Yeah, I noticed that right off about the bow machine gun. Having built three or four other Firefly tanks, I specifically made note of that when I checked it out.

Wow, your Walmart sells kits! Lucky!

 

Some recent purchases. Got the two Phantoms for $20 each at a swapmeet, which I consider a pretty good deal.

Congrats on the swap meet haul!

ANY kit for less than $30 these days is a good deal.

Lock Downs here meant no swap meets for a while.

Not even sure from the local club websites if any occurred in 2021.

Actually, a Wally Mart selling kits in my area will be past tense as soon as the clearance items are gone.

Paul, that is a seriously great batch of additions to your stash. And $20 each for 1/48 Hasegawa Phantoms is definitely a SCORE!

So I guess that I’ve been lagging on adding my latest acquisitions for a bit on here.
First up, I picked this up for a guy on Armorama who was selling it for a good price. I’ve been wanting a Sherman III DV for a LONG time!

FB4-D4604-A1-CD-44-D9-8297-44-AFEA5-B248

Then for crew, I picked up this Masterbox set. The two in desert uniforms will work just fine

4-E9-DEBA6-B7-B7-425-A-89-D3-F57-ABA9-A1

and lastly, a generous soul on Armorama gifted me these two Revolutionary War figures, after I mentioned on a thread of having built one long ago during the bicentennial and would like to have another  go at one, now that I can paint figures halfway decently. Many thanks for the two!

This came in the mail today. Courtesy of the same generous soul on Armorama.  Now I have the proper opponent to square off with the Continental Soldier figure that I received a bit over a week ago. 

2-E9-AC303-1-E04-4850-A3-F4-1-E85190-CB7
 

I had never picked up this figure back when I built the Continental Soldier long ago.
