Topics I've Started

I am done for awhile anyway.

I don't purchase models, paints and supplies very often. I usually go on a spending spree and get things all at once.
I now have a total of 23 unbuilt kits and one B17 Bomber kit to build.
I have a total of 7 models in various stages of completion and one on the bench.
I have all the paints I need, all the other accessories I need.
The wife got her hair done yesterday, looks good too.
That deal is now complete and personally I think I made out real good on it.
There is nothing else I want, well maybe that 62 Thunderbird, that 50 Texaco truck looks interesting.
What kind of a deal can I make now?

Happy Modeling.

those loving wives.

It has been a rather long time since I went on a spending spree buying kits, paints and other supplies.
My wife has supported by purchases completely. We discuss all expenditures before they are made.
We have been doing that for the 38 years we have been married.
My wife agrees with and actually enjoys my hobby, though not to the extent I do.
She helps with picking colors and making other suggestions, some of which I follow.
I was just wondering, how many of you guys have a wife/girlfriend that supports your hobby?

What have I done???

Late last week I posted a thread about my stash of 15 unbuilt,not even opened kits.
I included a picture that included the 7 models in various stages of completion I already had.
Since then I ordered and received two models, a 1956 Ford and the Black Widow.
I just got done ordering a combination kit where I get three models, 1968 Road Runner,( I think) a 1966 Gto and a fairlane Gt.
Also ordered the Munsters Koach tin.
The wife told me to order whatever I want, but don't forget I will need paint and distributors and such.
What have I done???

I'm impressed/ UPDATE.

I'm not even sure that impressed describes my amazement at the recent purchase I made from Dean's Hobby Shop.

I placed the order late Sunday evening.
There was something wrong with the address I gave them on the order form.
They called me at 8:04 A.M.Monday morning to get it straightened out.
My wife called me at 2:41 P.M. on Tuesday and tols me that my order was sitting on my workbench.

To me that is amazing service.
Great selection of models, good prices and quick turn around.
What more could you ask for.


My personal stash.

I will never argue that I don't have a stash of models that compares to some of you.
But this will keep me busy for quite some time.
The seven boxes on the left of the upper shelf are started and put back into the box for one reason or another.
The others are all unopened at this point.
I have two more coming from Deans Hobby Shop.
I'm happy.
