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

As I was walking the aisle at my "local" HobbyTown USA a few days ago, an odd thing happened. A big box with a Revell of Germany kit of the Douglas C-54D in 1/72 scale fell off the shelf right into m

Went with the wife to a thrift shop mall on Saturday. Found an old Revell-Monogram A-10 in 1/48 scale in a vendor's booth for $5.99. It was opened, so I peeked inside, but decided not to buy it. A few

Hi, Jim,

 

The instruction booklet for the Monogram 1/48 Kit #5609 PBY-5 Catalina has 16 pages. PM me with your USPS mailing address. I will mail you a complete copy. Do you have the decals? If not, I can include a color copy of the decal sheet.

Chris: too bad you weren't at our club kit auction today. Someone sold a lot of 1/700 Japanese cruisers (early and late models) and destroyers (Has. Fujimi, Tamiya, etc), probably no fewer than a dozen of them, and they went for about .50 each!

We had our local contest last Saturday and I took advantage of the vendor room. See photo below. I got a twin MiG-21 kit from John of UMM. I also got an Airfix Fairy Battle and a Zvezda A-90 Ekranoplan. I even won a couple of kits at the raffle.

Looks like it was a great show Clare! Way to go!

 

These are my latest acquisitions, purchased and won in the raffle at Orangecon this past weekend.

First off, I picked up a pin vise and then won the following other tools and supplies:

Next I have some new products as well as some additional stowage pieces from Value Gear:

I also won three books, one on the HMS Hood:

My apologies for the blurriness here. For some reason my camera couldn't focus on this book!

...one on the "mighty" German 88 Flak gun:

...and finally one that Robert will like: Son of Sherman, Volume I:

Finally we get to the models I got. This first one is my raffle winnings, the Sukhoi Su-30KI:

This next one is one that I purchased since it has markings for the 33rd TFW at Eglin AFB:

And finally, something that has been on my list since I'd heard it had come out: a 1/72 scale Saturn V rocket:

Here's a shot of the interior of the box:

Wow, what a kit! This is going to be a blast!

Okay, that's all my latest acquisitions from Orangecon! Thanks for looking in!

Okay Mark, You know where you can send that Saturn V right? :smiley2:

 

 

Actually yes! I'm sending it straight to my Hobby Room/Factory for assembly! :smiley20: :D

 

 

Watch out! You just might see this at Columbus next year!

Been reading the. "Bloody Shambles" books (Fall of Malaysia and Singapore) which has led to the purchase of a 1/48 Tamiya Buffalo and a 1/700 scale Force Z. Trumpeter Repulse and Tamiya Prince of Wales. I'd rather have them in 1/350 but the Spruemeister Purchasing office opted for the lower priced, more available micro floaty things.

Got these two while on Vacation in Virginia. The crew will be used on my Disney Sherman and the B-25 will be an IAF What If (assuming I actually build it)!

Picked these up this weekend..

One of them is to replace the Blackbird I built that is going to the USS Lexington in a couple of weeks. The other is for a design concept I saw that I want to build.

These, although separate kits, where designed to work together. The XR-7 can be mounted on the back of the SR-75.

Since I would be opening all the hatches on the Disney Sherman, I splurged on these from TMD...

I picked up an Aber PE set for the old Italeri Panther. Yes, I know the kit is old and not very accurate, but it doesn't bother me and I already have it. The PE set is probably worth more than the kit, but it should motivate me to build it.
