    I didn't feel bad about getting these cheap. They were on clearance already and the store made the mistake. I legitimately thought they were 79 cents each and got pretty psyched about buying a bunch of them.

    They know they goofed. In CT, there is a law that if they mislabel something, they have to honor the price. The manager probably changed the price tags immediately after I left.  She wasn't too happy about selling me roughly $60 of paint for a third of that!

    Chris,  every one of these scanned at 1.99 or 2.99, so check again.  They may be discounted but not marked as clearance. I would think all Michaels would have consistent pricing.

    Come to NNL East in April. Model King has their own section and you can get everything there!

    Michaels paint score!
    I stopped into Michaels in Wilton, CT last night and found pre-thinned bottles of Aztek paints on clearance for 2.99 each. There were only 3 colors marked down so I figured I'd grab them and see how they lay down. On my way home from work tonight,  I decided to check Michaels in Stamford to see if they had any different colors. Well, someone wasn't paying attention and put 79 cents clearance tags in front of ALL of the Aztek paints. I got all of these for about $20.

    I think it may be less than 10 years with the way things are progressing. Very soon, buying an actual kit will be like buying a CD or DVD - something that "old" people do!

    Ha ha ha, at least he's making the effort!

    Most dumps in the US will also take your old CRT TV and dispose of it for free.

    It just fit there perfectly!

    Christian, at 48, I'm old enough to remember ordering things via stamps and envelopes or by phone calls. The beauty of our lives now is that there is so much out there and it's so much more accessible. That's not a bad thing!

    I like your space, Joe!

    Very cool. I love the Stratos rally cars.

    Tom, I never thought I'd get caught up in the big TV craze but I want an even bigger one for the family room now. The 24 inch is perfect for the shop. I'm right next to it so it doesn't need to be huge!

    The continued benefits of technology...
    A few years back, I removed the old 19 inch TV from my shop because it was too big and got in the way. I got used to working in there with just music playing, but I missed the distraction. Lately, I've been enjoying all of the modeling related YouTube videos and started thinking how nice it would be to be able to watch videos that were relevant to specific things that I'm working on. I already had a Chromecast that I wasn't really using, so I started looking for a small TV that could fit on the wall and be out of the way. Costco has a 24 inch Samsung flat screen on sale for $170 and even better, it comes with a wall mount included. Now I can watch some lunatic like Dr. Cranky as he delivers his pearls of wisdom and I don't have to work around a gigantic plastic and glass monolith!
