Outstanding! This should keep you busy for awhile!

Yeah, it’s not like I have a lack of projects or stash…. but I still keep looking for those gaps in the collection to be filled… speaking of which….

Found this one on eBay last week for auction at about half off the best shop prices. And NOBODY else bid on it. Since the Thunderbirds started here at Luke AFB in 1953 flying these, it’s going to my Luke collection. Something of a new and old kit, as it is metal plated like the old Hawk F-84 that I built decades ago.

These came in the mail yesterday. I had ordered this decal set for my F-14D kit that I will be converting to an F-14B, I just needed the markings to get the last items needed.

Chip, that’s an awesome find! Aurora had some great subjects back in the day. I do hope that Atlantis Models may have those molds in their inventory somewhere. 

I’ve had a few items come in over the past week or two. 

First up, a set of Falcon vacuform canopies for post WWII USAF jets. I needed the one for an F-80 that I bought off of eBay that was missing it’s canopy. Most of the others will come in handy as well.

Then I picked up these two decal sets secondhand from Squadron, of all places… they’ll work great for some chopper kits I have where I don’t care for the kit decals, or the kit decals suck (Academy… cough cough)

Awesome scores guys! Way to go!

 

Last month at our IPMS meeting, one of my fellow club members gave me his raffle ticket that everyone gets who enters a model in the club competition. I actually won something with it:

Nice win, Duke!

Reminds me of when my son and I used to go to my local IPMS meetings. There you had to buy the tix.  I always bought $10 worth and then gave them to him. If there were 15 prizes he was assured of having his number called 2X!  If I hung on to the tix - nothing... LOL

Thank you Carlos. Yes, I believe this is the first Super Etendard I will have in my collection.

 

Thank you Kevin! At our meeting, everyone who enters a model in our contest gets one free raffle ticket. We also offer more for sale. In the days when I had some money, I would buy about 10-20 dollars worth and usually go home with at least one. Good to know your son was such a lucky charm! That is a great story!

Oh, ok. We sort of have similar on a yearly basis. Every November we have whats called a Mega Raffle. Tickets can't be bought but you get one ticket for every model you brought in thru out the year. Then in Jan or Feb. we have a Pledge Night. You give the name of a model you promise to build and if you follow thru and display it at the Oct. meeting, you get an extra 5 tickets.  Some of the prizes are general stuff, Exacto blades, Tamiya tape, small plastic storage bins, etc... but there are a few bigger prizes mixed in.

I miss the OC IPMS raffles, and at least one ticket from entering a model. At Phoenix IPMS ya gotta buy all of your tickets. I was talking with Dave Fredericks last Saturday at Modelzona about various differences between the two clubs.
