Al: The engraving for the zimmerit is there, but very light. I think when the time comes I'm going to either going to have to add aftermarket or make my own.

While participating in the Canyon State Modelcon in Phoenix I made a trip to the vendor room "JUST TO LOOK AROUND."  Here is the result of my looking around.





SWMBO was not impressed, hope you guys are.

Mitch, sounds like a cool racing rig coming up

Went to the lhs looking for some thing but no go on that but I came home with 2 1/48th aircraft

FA/18 with the markings for the sister squadron when I was in the U. S. Navy



and have no idea why I got this B-29 ( it's over 2 ft. long in 1/48th ) but then it was only $20.00



Al, Thanks for the pict, good kit also

I did some shopping this weekend at the local hobby shop which is having a 40% sale.  After all it's said and one it cost me $87.60 for these 5 kits.

I already figured out what I'll do with the '56 pick up and I had the P/E set for the Bel Air for awhile so the kit was a must.



Just got off the Batphone Robin there's a 40% sale at the hobby shop.  We have to go!
40%!!??  Holy sale Batman!



Those were better off in my stash than in someone else's.

ive got another GAZ-66 in the stash but thats a hard roof with a ZSU-23 in the back.....not sure what i shall do with this one, might do it loaded with cargo or arnify it into a Dakar type racer

Picked these up off evil bay this week. My wife thinks I'm addict, I agree.
The first one I got from my LHS yesterday. POJ, I didn't realize it was previous released as a motorized kit.



I already built this kit and kept the box, my box is mint.

totally.

Ordered these up yesterday, so tired up dropping my AB when switching from one to the other. I guess the next step should multiple lines for each brush.
