You will soon be flooded with PMs asking what brand that organizer is, and where they can get one.  :lol:

A little off topic, well sort of on topic, I have a very strong feeling I am getting a compressor for Christmas, but at this point, I think it would be a waste of money,  I am better off using rattle cans

 

But, that is a pretty cool work bench organizer,  I might have to get that for myself :lol:

Here's my plexer: I've made no secret of my passion for all things 'automotive'. I have a ’40 Dodge pickup street rod in the garage, my den is a shrine to automobiles, I built a separate workshop in my garage just to build models, yet every year I hear my wife and family lament how "difficult" I am to shop for! So I get things like coffee mugs with snow men on them, flannel shirts, (I hate flannel), goofy novelty gifts, etc. Don't get me wrong, I love my family and honestly am not lacking for anything, but, for Pete sakes, if you're gonna get me something, just do a quick 180 from anywhere in our house, it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out what trips my trigger. (And yes, I've told them this, but they claim that it's "not very exciting", we just want to get you something different.") Advice to family: Let it go, I'm not developing an interest in theatre, stamp-collecting, or anything else 'mind-expanding'. In the words of that immortal celluloid character, 'Popeye', "I yam what I yam, and that's all that I yam." 

 

Rant complete.

I just got one of these for my neighbor!  

Seriously!   LOL    His coffee table is always trashed, four remotes, phone, pens, pencils, note pads, etc....... He needed it!     I thought it was the perfect gift!       I di dn't know what else to get him, he's not a car guy. He's a golfing guy, you can only get him golf balls so many years in a row before it gets boring. :wacko:

 

 My family always says I'm hard to buy for. I'm a modeler!    Buy me a model!     They say they don't know which model to buy me. Who cares!      If I have one already, I'll paint this one a different color, or Pro Street this one!      It doesn't matter if I have five of them, I'll be happier with six!     :D

i went one step further. i put every model i could want on my wish list on ebay. since my wife and i share the account i figured she may get the drift. i got the whole i cant find anything for you. ermmmm. i then dropped the whish list hint. so far no boxes shaped like models. out side of models i have 4 teams i pull for, i collect ho trains and anything to do with datsuns. she cant figure out what to get. really.

Thing-a-ma-bobs other people buy are great, its not my money. My issue is the things I buy on ebay after a few Cervaza's. Thats when I have my "why on the earth" moment.

My family just finds it easier to publish wish lists to the rest of the family, the only possible downside is duplicates...which is not always a bad thing.

I'd rather not get models as gifts.  In my past when friends or relatives bought me a model, they'd tend to think 'bigger is better' and I got 1/8 scale stuff...  "I got ya a really big one,  think you can put this one together?"  (Like it's a friggin puzzle or something!)  

 

I buy all my new kits from within the hobby at a steep discount over retail so I don't want people paying full hobby store price for them for me!  In our family we don't exchange gifts with my wife or my siblings or other family.  If my wife gets me anything, it's usually clothes I would've needed to get anyway.
