I had a drive through to Edinburgh City and picked up a compressor, a magnifier light, some Krystal Klear, an Airbrush cleaning station, cleaning fluid and and a little measuring syringe.

This is all stuff I need as I am getting back into the hobby, trust me on this I won't be spending £160.00 ($320.00) every week ;)

Since my LHS is 140 miles away I haven't been there for over a month but I did get an order from Model Express at the beginning of the week which consisted of some MCG photo etch, a Fujimi Ferrari 348 kit and the Revell '49. Hey, I wanted to find out what all the hoople over this kit is about but I can't imagine me having a lot of desire to build it. I've also got an order to Strada sports (decals & PE) just about ready to be sent.

Now about those gas prices...............!!!!!!


You think your gas is high?

You should see the price in the Chicago area. We have the dubious distinction of being blessed with the highest ga$$$ prices in the country.

And that's why I shop online. :D

Well, the other day I found something for the daughter, but then I could not find this darn thread.Thanks to the last reply, I now can. Friday night I found at my local Wally world a 1/25 dodge charger kit discounted down to $2.00!! so on Saturday she not only recieved that but also the white convertable Mustang kit.Just can not believe I picked that kit up new and sealed for $2.00 what a way to help keep the youngins in the hobby. I am hoping to get her the cop out kit for Christmas!

Today, the mailman left for me a nice, built MPC 1966 GTO annual. Yesterday, the mailman delivered a built MPC 1977 Camaro and a mint, sealed MPC 1977 Camaro. Well, it was sealed LOL!!! I opened it to smell that new 30 year old styrene!!!

I just ordered a set of Pegasus 23" wheels for my '70 Wildcat and I have a new S13 Silvia on the way from Hobbylink Japan that should also arrive with 2 sets of 19" Volks wheels. I'm waiting for the new Testors paints to hit the shelves so I can get back into building again.

I just received this morning via my email, notification from Hobbylink Japan that a Fujimi 1/20 Ferrari 126C2 1982 San Marino, the car Gilles Villeneuve was driving at the time of his fatal accident, is in route to me from Japan. I have all of the Tamiya 1/20 F1 series, and the 2 great kits from Modelers (I wish they were still around making F1 kits) so this will be a welcome addition. I will be adding a driver fiqure of Gilles to complete this car.

Nothing. It's payday and I'm already broke. Still playing with my new camera, which is why I'm broke anyway. :rolleyes:

Saturday, I got a semi-painted, but unbuilt VW Scirocco. I hate the red plastic, but I will seal it, after I strip off the paint.

Absolutely nothing! There's plenty of stuff I would LIKE to buy....but that ain't gonna happen any time soon :(

I did get some projects closer to completion, and started 8 more this week.

I should have my Jeff Gordon 2004 Brickyard 400 winner done this weekend...

I started:
Factory Stock 49 Mercury
hot rod 32 Ford
custom 72 Corvette
as yet undecided 54 Bel Air
1960 Chevy SD custom
34 Ford sedan custom
29 Ford hot rod
1976 #30 Dale Earnhardt Army S-3 Laguna

I also did much of the chassis and interior work on my custom Revell Mercury. I am going to spray paint the frame, interior, and engine and I need to do a couple more coats of paint on the body too. Plus clear on the body.


I also got 3 of my 1/64 NASCAR models close to completion- 2006 Sterling Marlin Centrix, 2000 Jeff Fuller Viagra and 1995 Kyle Petty Coors Light Silver Bullit. I got my 1995 Ward Burton painted, and the interior painted too, but now I am waiting for the decals to arrive.

Nothing from the shop, but the mailman did drop off five new sets of Aoshima Wheels (I have learned, get 'em while you can) Three sets of the Volks GT-V, one GT-C and one of the Wedssport SA-70. The mailman also dropped off another russian rangefinder, but that is another story and the reason the model budget is shot!!!
