It was fairly expensive, but all relative to my situation. If it gets too hot in the storage I can move this inside while wife and kids are not around and continue to work. I purchased it through amazon Prime, so I think it was liek $370 shipped to me

Heard through a friend that a guy in the same village had a few old built up kits he was going to throw away, and they were mine if I wanted them...........very happy I picked them up.

Got these on Wednesday at Hobbytown...

When I walked in they had this on the clearance table...
I have yet to take it out of the plastic... So I'm not sure if it is a resin or made from plastic... The owner was working on it and decided he didn't want it anymore.... Got it for a buck... Passenger side has a crack and the b pillars need to be re worked... But for a buck, I'm not complaining...

Ray that boat builds up into a decent kit. I built one a few years back and really enjoyed it. It's great for a quick build.

Congratulation! That's a very nice camera body ... I have a 5100 and a D80 I used many years before that. The lens you use to take model photos is everything, though. If you got the kit lens, I'm not sure it will be satisfactory, but I don't know much about those. Just give a test to see if you can focus with a model filling the frame at least. I got a Tamron AF 90mm Macro lens for closeups and have been very happy with it. both cost and performance.

 

Edit: I got curious and looked up a review on the kit lens ... seems there is a macro mode that will get plenty close for model needs. :)  Be sure to post some photos!

I bought some kits at a hobby shop during a family trip through Wisconsin. We spent the day in Green Bay and I found a really good hobby shop called N.E.W. Hobby. It was one of the best that I have been to in a long time.

Thanks! After some test shots I'm very happy.

I would try to make pictures of my models with the macro mode, but not this weekend, there I'm at a hot rod meeting  :)

I just got the kit lens but I want to buy some other in the next time. I will take a look on the Tamron 90mm Macro lens. 

 

So next week I will post some pictures of my 59 Cadillac which I build at the moment, than we see how good the kit lens is  :)

I got a big package from VCG Resins. The first two copies of my LS7 crate motor, 6 T-56 six- speed manuals, 3 of the 6L80 six-speed autos, a half dozen sets of the 572 valve covers and a pair of the resin EFI BBC intakes from the AMT '67 Impala.

I received some vintage resto projects in the mail yesterday.  All but the Javelin came yesterday.  Dropped off a few parts to a local garage, and he had a bunch of AMC stuff on display, gave me the Javelin Funny car body which is a complete body, for free.

 

Silver firebird looks like it was dipped in paint, its so thick.

Well I finally got back from vacation. I enjoyed it but I'm glad to be back on the bench. Here are some things I recently scored. The Ghia and the Fiat are from John's models in pensacola FL, I highly recommend going if your ever in his neck of the woods. The monza was a gift from a friend. And all of the tools are from a discount tool store.

Ooooooh. That's a nice haul. I really want a few of those. I actually had three Initial D kits, the 86 and two different rx-7's. I sold them to a friend because I wasn't into them,but now I'm getting into Initial D and wish I had them back.

Don't quote me, but wasn't there some issues with VCG Resin reported fairly recently?

In my personal experience, they (VCG) have been great to work with. I've never waited more than a day for a reply to an email and have talked to Manny personally on the phone. I had Manny hold my order until all the masters that I'd sent him were cast and ready for production but even that entire process only took a couple of weeks.
