At Toledo I picked up the Scale Designs Porsche 935 from Lemans 76. Tom Tanner is folding up his business and I figured I better get one before they are gone. I also won a Revell 40 Ford Street rod kit at the NNL. I also grabbed some cool old mags for my "Wall O'Mags".

Picked up a Revell Germany Porsche 944 Turbo that I'm starting soon, and ordered up a Tamiya Nissan 350Z from the LHS tonight. The owner was kind enough to give me a deal. :rolleyes:

Went to my LHS to talk to the guy about the make and take. Something I like a lot is that he will sell your stuff on comision. Somebody brought a pile of older mags and these followed me home :)

Didn't buy anything but for anyone on the board who is from western Canada who may have a farm-hardware supply store called Peavey Mart near them they now have their annual Christmas supply of kits. Good selection of AMT & Revell, they even had the Testor's Charger...but no '49 Merc :lol:

Two days after Xmas they always put all kits that are left on for 50% off. I rarely resist that opportunity to add to the stash.

Bought a parts lot on Evil-Bay- Triumph chrome motocycle (Revell parts pak?), lots of old hot rod parts (some great tires, wishbones, steel wheels, wire wheels, front and rear axles, flathead parts, Ford hubcaps, headlights and a bunch of other stuff), and 10 concrete blocks (always useful in a display). The seller provided additional detail photos which confirmed my decision to bid. I have recently bought other parts lots, resin parts, photo etch parts, and scratch building supplies like styrene rod and strips, and brass rod. I plan on picking up the Revell Monogram 1932 Ford sedan if it really includes a flathead and other vintage hot rod goodies. Not buying many kits right now- concentrating on building what I have, and if I actually finish them all, I will have become immortal...........

Today 11/10/07 I went to Big Lots and grabbed up a Chrysler 300 and 2 AMT display cases, then on to Wal Mart with the wife, picked up some Future acrylic floor polish. My wife thought I was making a gesture that I would do the floor at home, and I had to tell her that it is for my models, now she says she wants to do the floor with some of my Future. I gonna have to hide it. LOL.

Tomorrow is the Kit Collectors swap meet and I am sure to find some good stuff there. ;)
