Its been a eventful last month for me. Spent several tens of thousands on model building!!!

 

These came from Hobby Lobby clearance.  The Helicopter was 22.00 down from 65.00, the Mustangs and the vette were 10.99 each and the merc and sprint car were 11.99.

then we bought this model room...

 

14450343098_0558ec9221_c.jpg20140626_162034 by jrherald420, on Flickr

 

It came with a yard and some extra rooms one could live in if they wanted too, or you could just build a different model in each room and never have to pack them up to work on something different!

 

Here's the outside of the new model room

Here is the model room ready to go, only took me 3 weeks to get this far.

Got these for the new back yard track. They are 1/18 scale. Ground breaking is in a few weeks.

And the 29 x 25 ft area for the track.

I am actually not a mustang fan, let alone Ford after 1955 but I walked into my LHS today and everything was 25% off so I grabbed this.. mainly because I am a sucker for affordable 1/16 scale kits haha

Got the AMT 1970 1/2 Camaro and a 1970 'Cuda (special edition oooooohhhh), some paint, and a new brush that was .99 instead of 2.99 (best brush ever, it's the Atlas Brush Co. 970 3/0 689076966337 ) and also some Tamiya tape. That was my monthly model trip haha..

Build them! That's what they were made for. The JoHans, expect the Turbine Car, are pretty simple. But, they and the Turbine Car look great when they're done. Do it!
