Sheriff's Blazer (sealed)
'56 Chevy Del Ray (started/painted, looks complete)
'78 Pontiac T/A (open, not started, looks complete)
Chrysler 300 (open, started, looks complete)

Paint/glue bombs, parts-
'78 Pontiac T/A (parts or rebuild)
'80(?) Pontiac T/A (parts)
Pontiac Fiero (rebuilder)
'69 Hurst Olds 442 (parts or rebuild)
'4? Mercury (decent build, nice paint, put back together)
'58 Cadillac Eldorado Seville (basket case, parts only)

And finally, the 1/8th scale '82 Corvette Collector's Edition from Casey. Pretty good day.IMG_3560.jpgIMG_3561.jpgIMG_3562.jpg

Just picked this one up for $10. Completely sealed and brandy-new inside. Now I have the teardrop hood.

I am envious of you.. we don't have anything like that here. if it was not for Micheal's, hobby-town, and Walmart.. there would be nothing here.. there use to be a ton of places. All but those 3 stopped selling models ( Walmart just started back up again ) and here to get glue bombs for parts/restore there is only one place trying you luck with evilgay I mean ebay.

Sorry to hear that. I, and other modelers here(on the forum in SE Wisconsin), are lucky to have...well, more than a few hobby stores and shows. I happen to live within 2 miles of 3. Not including Michael's or Hobby Lobby(too far away). I try to stay away from ebay, but sometimes it's almost the last option for something specific that's out of production. However, there are many other online options/links to buy from including Model Empire. www.modelempireusa.com

Hey Derick,where in Idaho are you?

I might be able to help you out with parts if you ever need anything.

This was one I forgot to mention. It's a 5x10 utility trailer with a ramp that I bought last week...second to last one where I bought it on sale. The wife was kind of against it at first, but I convinced her to let me buy it instead of renting trailers or trucks. As you can see it came in handy today. We were cleaning out her parents house and everything she wanted to take fit in the truck and trailer with room to spare. I know it'll have plenty of miles put on it in the next year...up north and when we move. So, buying models will have to slow down for a bit.IMG_3563.jpg

I've also made it clear that me, the truck, or the trailer are not for hire or to be borrowed under any circumstances. Had too many things that I borrowed to some people come back bent or broken. I personally would never do that someone. If I broke something that I borrowed, I'd replace it or fix it. Today was different...it was my wife. No problem with that.

yea thats why I helped people move.. no one barrows it or my trucks for any reason. yea I hate to barrow and yea I am one that brings back in better shape than when I borrowed it. but it seems I never bet the same treatment back.. It seems people will bring back broken or even not bing it back at all and the blame me for there short comings. so yea the wife and have taken the same stance.. and now that my physical condition has gotten bad I don't help move ether ( IE like you said not for  hire ) but you will not feal bad for getting that trailer.. one tip .. keep in under tarps when not in use ( keep it out of sight ( people still those things ) and I park mine on boards too in the back yard.. I also make double sure that the wheels/tires are tarped to keep the sun off.

Right now I have it locked onto the truck. Probably going to put a cable lock through a wheel and around the frame too. Soon it will be locked in a garage somewhere else with my rider mower on it till we move.

I went to a LHS today and got 2 special Edition Revell Austin Healey's for $9.99 each on closeout. Not bad! Then I went to pick up my wife at Goodwill and she had found me  a 1/8th Monogram '82 Camaro and a 1/8th Monogram '82 Corvette for $6.99 each. They are both unstarted and complete with fair to rough boxes. All in all a pretty good day!

Nice finds by your wife. My wife seems to find stuff at Goodwill and similar stores for me too. I, on the other hand, have absolutely 0 luck. It's like they know when I'm coming in and they put nothing out so I'm disappointed and wasted my time there.
