    Found these for $6.11 each in the Hobby Lobby clearance section...

    Nice find at Hobby Lobby - just under $11.

    I think the Fruit Wagon is just incredibly desirable. I went back to the Florence, KY Ollie's for the Tee Vee Dune Buggy and Piranha Spy Car and they were cleaned out on Fruit Wagons and the '23 T Delivery Truck. If you do come across more, get as many as you want while you can! My understanding is that some Ollie's still have kits in boxes in the back, so you may just have to wait for them to restock.

    I made my way to the final Ollie's in my area and I was glad that I did. It was the only one that had the Cosmic Charger so I got one... as well as a third Fruit Wagon. Now I can do a third variant! It's interesting how none of them had all the same kits. I guess I'm lucky to have 4 within 20 miles of me.

    Thanks!

    I already had a Fruit Wagon and had no recollection of it having so many parts in it. That was the only reason I immediately grabbed another one!

    Wow, I wish they had them discounted to this price at one of my local HL's. I would buy the Lawman and the Soapy Sales at those prices.

    Molotow Chrome Pens at Hobby Lobby
    I was just at the Hobby Lobby on Colerain Ave. in Cincinnati and they have the Molotow Chrome pens that are featured in this month's issue of Model Cars. The pens are in the same aisle as the models and paints and retail for $11.99. That's $4.80 off with the HL coupon, making them $7.20 each. Just sharing this info for anyone interested. They're also close to being fully restocked - the Coca Cola '25 Model T was there, as was the AMT Vending Machine, Larry Fullerton's Mustang Funny Car, the Yellow Feather Prudhomme dragster, the Suburban, and a few other items I hadn't seen before.

    I stopped at the Ollie's in Florence, KY tonight and found the 2013 Camaro and also grabbed another '25 Fruit Truck. They also had the Piranha Spy Car, which I don't think anyone else has come across yet. They only had about 9 of the spy car, maybe 3 of the fruit trucks, and 3-4 of the '23 T truck. There were plenty of Camaros, Tee Vee buggies, and Jawbreaker dragsters, as well as the Lindberg police car. I have two other Ollie's in Cincinnati to still check out.

    I stopped by today. The ad is a bit misleading, there was very little beyond what they're already advertising.

    Again, I'll wait for shows or for online sellers who offer kits at a discount. I already buy pretty much all of my Tamiya kits from Japanese hobby shops on Amazon. The ship time is longer, but the difference in price is so worth it. And most ship for free.

    The ad did not lie in regards to picture and price, but there was no amazing selection of additional kits.

    Thanks Rob, I didn't realize that.

    Wow. Photobucket is screwing me over and asking for a $400 fee to post my images to this site. I'm going to look into free alternatives. Back soon!

    A couple of basic tips/ideas for anyone interested
    I recently moved to Cincinnati from Connecticut and for the time being, I'm in a one bedroom apartment with a small area set aside for building. With some inexpensive Revell wood items from the local Michael's, I was able to build the following basic work area. I used sections of wood to create "holders" for paint bottles to help prevent tipping, and used the leftover lengths to make a guard at the back to keep things from rolling off the back of the table:


    Also, while at Michael's, I found these little paint storage cups that are perfect for storing small parts that may have fallen off of a kit tree. They come in strips of six but you can easily break them apart. They're small enough that you can toss a few loose parts into them and then throw them right into the kit box:


    If you're wondering, the part in there is a tongue! It's from the Weird-Oh's Freddy Flameout kit.
