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

Finally got around to buying the AFV Club M60A3TTS to go along with the M60A1. Looks to be a superb kit.

Couple other good scores at a Goodwill store. Found a Moebuis Ironman Mark III kit for $1.99 and a 1/48 scale Monogram B-26 Marauder for $3.99   The Ironman kit was missing the instructions, but I w

James,

Full kit though the turret will be regulated to the spares as I am turning this into a Egyptian M4A4/A2 FL-10 Hybrid.

Happy box just arrived from Japan!

 

Hello, my name is Pete and I am an egg plane junkie!

 

Filling in some of the holes in my collection and adding a new one. The shuttle and transporter are new to the series!

At the 1986 Nationals in Sacramento, there was a cartoonish carrier populated with a USN wing of egg planes. USS Eggselsior.

Since there seems to be a little interest, I thought I would throw up this photo of my stash. As near as I can tell, Hasegawa has been making "egg planes" since the mid 70's. They made a series and then reissued them for years. In the last 5 years they have begun making new molds of current aircraft. The first was a P-51 and they have done several more each year. The latest is an Osprey in two different version. These are really simple kits, but can be build up to very nice little models.

The latest is the 747/shuttle which is actually two old kits with some new parts. This is a shot of the USAF SOG Osprey. It is currently on the bench being build.

1986 Region 9 contest. Shot in B&W because they were going to be published in newsletters. Before the days of Photoshop, lol.

As I recall, it also had lights for calling the ball, and the mast. Find the Update issue for the 86 Nationals. I think it won Most Humorous, built by Joe Martinez.

I got nuthin' too. Course when you consider this is both a hobby and business for me, it's a little hard for anyone to buy kits for me. But I did get a gift card from Hobby Lobby. Combine that with their 40% off coupons and

things could be very interesting before long. Let's see...if a kit costs $80, then less 40% equals.....

I can add my sadness to receiving nothing model building related. Of course, I knew this and ordered myself some early Christmas presents....Both versions of the new Takom T-3s, 2 Plusmodel Switchboard sets, DEF pickup tires, PanzerArt spare Centurion roadwheels, BlackDog Humber Mk. IV stowage set, and the AFV Club Centurion Dalet.

My family knows that if I don't get at least one model, and a book, Xmas didn't happen for me. It's a policy that goes back a loooong way. That, and never, ever buy me clothes. No ones gets my clothing likes right, lol.
