In the last week, I've purchased the AMT retro style box reissue '67 Shelby, the '72 Opel GT, an unbuilt Johan Petty Superbird (molded in bright green, thinking about a street machine w/ 6 pack hood scoop), a rebuildable MPC '80 Volare 'Fuzz Duster' (been looking for one of those for years), and an unbuilt AMT Subaru Brat (been looking for one of those for years also).

I went to the local hobby shop for two things. A few pieces of bass wood for my Doodle Bug build and a few small drill bits to replace ones I've broken. As usual, I went a bit overboard. I did get Model Cars issue 175, and the photo above represents the $45 or so of Evergreen and basswood. I got several sizes of half round, same of angle irons, a pack of large channel to try to make a street rod chassis, a sheet of ribbed siding for my VW camper project. It adds up quick!
Now here's a good deal. Evergreen has a pack called 9002 Odds & Ends. It's 8 oz of misc sheets, strips, rounds, square hollow channel and all kinds of stuff that you wouldn't want to buy a full pack of, but will come in handy on a project. The entire pack was $7.85, which you can't beat since a single sheet of the V-Groove siding was $6.15 and there is half a sheet of it in this Odds & Ends pack.
So I left the store and stopped at the Burger King in the same parking lot. While eating it dawned on me... I never even looked at the drill bits! So it was back to the hobby shop, where I got another set of bits and an extra pin vise. There went another $24!
That's my big splurge on materials. It should keep me busy for a while!
And now I'm watching a bid on eBay... nothing exciting. My pool cover pump died and I'm bidding on another one at less than half what the local pool supply store wants for it.
