  1. What non-auto model did you get today?

    One more for the pile, this time as a review kit. (I'll have the review up in a few days.)
  2. What non-auto model did you get today?

    And in the box was a real nice additional prize for me, one that had originally not been included with the gift.
  3. What non-auto model did you get today?

    Another Christmas raffle gift arrived a few days ago. This was declined by another member, so I snatched it up.
  4. What non-auto model did you get today?

    It's supposed to be a pretty good kit. I guess we'll see when the time comes.
  5. What non-auto model did you get today?

    Won in a web site Christmas raffle (different site).
  6. Same here, the Nikon that I have is way more than adequate for my online hobby requirements.
  7. This was my only vehicle related gift, but it's pretty darned cool.
  8. What non-auto model did you get today?

    Wernher von Braun, he aimed for the stars (but sometimes hit London by accident).
  9. I only have about a dozen or so car models, and will never reach the level of the OP, but when I look at the rest of my stash; aircraft armor and ships, I too have a ton, far more than I can manage to complete in the next fifty years. My family (brother and sister) could care less, so they'll probably all be taken to the dump.
  10. OK, thanks. (I currently use a Nikon Coolpix that works just great, but I'd eventually like to upgrade.)
  11. Just out of curiosity, how much will you be seeking for the D5300?
  12. New "most annoying sound"

    For me, it's a giant subwoofer, usually on such a junky car that the bumpers vibrate. I hear a little too much of that around here.
  13. What non-auto model did you get today?

    A couple more for the pile, both gifts from different friends.
  14. What non-auto model did you get today?

    That's just too cool. Thanks for that.
  15. A very minor thing by some standards, but I received this yesterday, a Meade moon filter for my telescope. This should help a great deal when viewing the moon.
  16. Sam Foose

    Never heard of him; Chip's dad, I take it?
  17. 1960 Chrysler Imperial. 12/4, Finished!!

    I'd like to know that myself. My coffeine induced shaky hands would never allow such precise work.
  18. Revell '30 Ford

    OK, fellas, for the very first time in the slightly less than four years since I joined here, I’m intending to finish at least one model for a car model contest here in May of 2019, and this is it. It’ll be mostly OOB (naturally), with hood glued on and no engine, but I’ll most likely switch out those funky wheels and tires. Color will be Tamiya TS41 (Coral Blue), with a khaki top, and no flames.
  19. Revell '30 Ford

    The combination of the two will look pretty decent, I think.
  20. Revell '30 Ford

    Now being somewhat reluctant to use the Tamiya Coral, I opted for Testors Icy Blue instead.
  21. Revell '30 Ford

    After scrubbing with some steel wool, I've repainted using Testors gloss black instead. This I should be able to work with.
  22. Revell '30 Ford

    The Tamiya black on the fenders turned out just horrible. I don't know if I just goofed it up or what.
  23. Revell '30 Ford

    Body primered, so now good for some paint.
  24. Revell '30 Ford

    Seat cleaned up and primered now; looks a heck of a lot better, but still needs a bit of tweaking.
