    Glad to hear you like this kit. Can't wait to see what surprise I get. 
    Ya, those wheels could be a great start to building a railcar.

    Mystery kit on its way to Tom. Shipped out earlier today.
    No idea what I will be receiving yet, but looking forward to it. It's going to be tough to clear the bench for a new project though, propably going to have to "share" the bench space.
     
    On a different note. I am curious(and it might help others in the future) how you other traders came to your decision of what kit to "trade".

    Mike. Your not alone, I can't find HD decals either.
    But I do see sever others that I might "need" to have.

    Harley Davidson decals
    Does anybody know of a source for HD decals? Or is anybody here able to make some?

    I like this idea. Sounds like it could take a person a bit out of comfort zone which often helps our skill levels.
    I have too many projects on the bench to participate at the moment, but a few months from now might be doable.
    Ohh, located NW Oregon.

    Well done. Barely looks like the same piece.

    Do it. I think it could be hilarious, and informative.
     
    Ohhh, liking that long hood too.

    YUP, all that stuff might get used someday. BUT, how many of those tools will get used by somebody getting back into the hobby that hasn't built a kit in 43 years.
    I still suggest getting a few small things, then think about what tools would help make the next kit better. Sure, in the long run, if you stick with the hobby you will spend that 3 bills. But absolutely not necessary for a first kit in 43 years.

    I would have to disagree slightly with the last comment. 
    I would suggest skipping the three hundred dollar bill comment.
    But rather, head to the hobby shop and pick up some basic supplies, couple decent paint brushed, a handful of colors of testors square bottle paints and a couple spray cans of the colors for your first kit,  brush cleaner of choice, some tube glue or CA, nice hobby knife, and some sandpaper. I'm sure I missed something. 
    It's still going f to coat a fair chunk of change, but get some supplies and see if this is the hobby that your childhood remembers it to be before spending too much money on it.
    Just by two pennies. Enjoy the hobby.

    I would be happy to have yours too in excel format. Maybe with a couple cars still listed on it.

    LS powered and slammed to the ground, just my style.

    And the consequence for breaking the rule is?
    Would it be fair game for somebody else to claim a kit from the offering? Maybe harsh, but really it .ca t be that difficult to post something back up. Even a verbal with a pic coming soon, or a pic from Google?

    I have also been wanting to inventory what I have stashed. Thanks for the spreadsheet ideas.
