I got a nice half inch cut in my left pointer finger...Drill slipped....Didn't draw blood and didn't really hurt but I've been taking it easy, don't want to do any real damage... :o I did it Friday but havn't posted since then.

As for actual model stuff, well, I got a nice set of Bob Dudek Lake Pipes in the mail since the last time I posted, which are destined to be on my neon green Mercury, which I am still planning on getting done in time for Toledo!

Just came back from my club's ( RPM - Racing Plastic Models) Saturday night gathering where 2 club members bought out a hobby shop and are peddling the vast inventory. I picked up a Tamiya special edition Porsche Boxster, a set of Fujimi Daus wheels & tires(really wide 13" wheels with F40 like spokes - perfect for an econo-box turned street racer), 3 Slixx decal sheets and 2 old kit decals, all for $35.00. I was pleased. ;) :lol: Check out their deals on Ebay. User name is scottharv1.

Got the Wix filters Cobra 427 on Saturday. It's embarrassingly better than any other 1/24 Cobra out there that I've ever seen. It was $25, detail level/quality is what's normally expected on Danbury/Franklin Mint. To get a Monogram/Revell Cobra 427 to look as good, with as much detail...whew. You keep looking at it, and find more detail. It's sickening ;) Doors/hood/trunk all fit very tight. No wonder plastic is dying off. If they keep making models this good for 25 bucks...sheesh.

Cool. I was looking at a 1:1 '74 fastback a few weeks ago. Absolutely rust free Cal. car, 360 dodge engine. Horrible candy red paint. $2400 OBO. Kid wanted to sell real bad. Almost put my motorcycle on Ebay, then I calmed down a bit. Still wish I was posting it as "what i got today." Hmmmmm, it is still for sale............

I got a really neat 1961 Mercury coupe built up from eBay. I logged in last Sunday evening and saw it finishing up at $25 so I checked it out. Fuzzy photo, no detail in the description. That usually means 'buyer beware'. But I was in the mood to play, so I bid and got it for $25.

It arrived yesterday and I was stoked! It's complete and it's a great vintage build. Nicely sprayed red paint and all the trim was carefully picked out with silver paint. The interior and chassis are black. I sure got my money's worth!

Big Lots score: '72 Chevy P/U, '05 300C, '61 Ranchero(another) and the Silhouette show rod by Bill Cushenbery.

The selection here was surprising; almost as many as a craft store. :huh: I could have bought at least two more, but I should have only bought two to start with! :rolleyes:

Ah well, I have a ways to go to catch up to a lot of you here for "stash" size :)

I also scored a few at biglots. One each of the 61 Ranchero, 05 300C, and A 04 GTO. Also picked up an AMT 66 Nova SS (one of my personal favorite cars).

I started on the GTO with a little assembly and painting today.

Nothing today, but I picked up the Polar Lights '05 GTO at Hobby Lobby yesterday for about $3.25. Gotta go back tomorrow for a couple cans of paint.

Also...debating which Ferrari kit to order from HLJ with the proceeds of recent eBay Hot Wheels sales. :rolleyes:

Got my standing order for all the 2007 Corvette promos including the Indy Pace Car and the Daytona Pace Car. In particular the Pace Cars were beautifully done this year. (my dealer always waits till all promos are available before he ships to me)

Last week my hobby delivery was my first order from Strada. Every thing in stock and quick shipping. I'll be ordering from them again. BTW, the order was PE & decals for various Ferrari projects.

At Toledo I picked up the Scale Designs Porsche 935 from Lemans 76. Tom Tanner is folding up his business and I figured I better get one before they are gone. I also won a Revell 40 Ford Street rod kit at the NNL. I also grabbed some cool old mags for my "Wall O'Mags".

Picked up a Revell Germany Porsche 944 Turbo that I'm starting soon, and ordered up a Tamiya Nissan 350Z from the LHS tonight. The owner was kind enough to give me a deal. :rolleyes:
