  1. What Did You Get Today?

    Nice setup, Jonathan.
  2. What non-auto model did you get today?

    Another review kit showed up here last Wednesday. I must say that despite some shortcomings, it's actually very nice indeed.
  3. What non-auto model did you get today?

    The transportation museum here in St Louis, has one of the Aerotrains too.
  4. What Did You Get Today?

    Another small order arrived today, this time two blue LED cooling fans for my new PC (I'll ultimately be running six, plus the two on the CPU cooler), a dust filter for the bottom intake, and a six-pack of SATA 6.0 connectors.
  5. What non-auto model did you get today?

    It depends on how much you like trains, I guess. Since it's so close to me, I can drop down anytime I want, but still usually manage to spend several hours there. The Big Boy is definitely showing some serious deterioration as a consequence of being stored outdoors. There was talk of a restoration, then moving it under shelter, but I have no idea if they ever proceeded or not. I have the Revell kit of the 4-8-8-4, so took quite a few detail photos so far, but I'll be headed down there again this spring to snatch a bunch more.
  6. What non-auto model did you get today?

    Yep, that sounds about right. Oh, and Bill, if you ever get to St Louis, check out the transportation museum here; lots and lots of locomotives and other train stuff, including the 4006 4-8-8-4 Big Boy, most impressive.
  7. What non-auto model did you get today?

    Oh yes, an excellent deal. How big it is, once completed, I don't really know, but it's pretty large. I've seen a couple built before, and they can be pretty impressive.
  8. What non-auto model did you get today?

    I get lucky sometimes too. A couple of years ago, some guy was blowing out this 1:350 Enterprise kit for $20 each, so my friend bought three and gave me one.
  9. What Did You Get Today?

    Bit by bit, the parts for my seemingly endless new PC build are arriving, this time a Seagate Barracuda 2TB SATA HDD.
  10. What non-auto model did you get today?

    Real nice score on the Constitution, John; I think I paid $80 for mine, but it's well worth it. I too have the same C-57D kit, Joe, and it is a real monster of a kit. Can't say when I'll ever actually build it, but still,...
  11. What non-auto model did you get today?

    Yes, I had encountered that page while searching for general F-105 stuff for my review. It looks like he did a great job on the old Monogram kit.
  12. What non-auto model did you get today?

    I had both the D & G models at one time too (Trumpeter boxings), but sold them both before I'd ever really had a chance to look at them well. While I do like the overall silver birds, I still prefer the SEA scheme, so that's what I'll do mine as. I'm currently writing a rather comprehensive review of the D kit for another site, and so far I'd have to say that overall, it's a wonderful foundation to build upon, and should look quite impressive when finished. As to the older kits, I built the Revell B-17, B-24 and B-25 when I was a kid, and loved them all, but there are obviously better kits of them out there now; the Hong Kong models B-25's, B-17G, & E/F, and soon a Trumpeter B-24, all in 1:32 scale.
  13. What non-auto model did you get today?

    One more that I recently added to my seemingly ever-hungry stash.
  14. Martin Mariner

    Looks real nice. I've been wanting the Ginter book on the Mariner for some time now, but have no idea when I'll ever actually get it. And for me, the Minicraft kit, will be the way I'll go.
  15. Mercedes-Benz W31 G4 models?

    Very cool info, and I really appreciate it, guys. I'd never bother with a resin kit anyway, as I already have enough problems with the plastic kits. I'll probably end up grabbing one of the 1:24 scale ICM kits.
