Got this at the LHS. After I cashed in my “frequent buyer point” it cost me $13. Gotta love that.

Hello,

There is no LHS in my neck of the woods that sells 1/25 scale cars, therefore I find ebay is my best source at present.

My recent arrivals, yesterday, are second hand, such as the Revell '69 Shelby GT500 (#7161) in very yellow plastic, an AMT/ERTL '57 Ford Hard Top (#31838),  and AMT/ERTL 1969 Pontiac Firebird (#31808).

Last weekend, more bargains, AMT/ERTL '68 Plymouth Roadrunner (#6515) in two shades of tan plastic,  AMT/ERTL 1958 Chevy Impala (#6548), and an MPC 1970 Pontiac GTO. 

New kits acquired,  AMT 1957 Ford Hardtop 'Flashback' (#1010), and an MPC 1970 Dodge Coronet Super Bee (#869).

That’s pretty cool looking. I’m more into modern euro stuff, but this makes me want to look harder at the vintage stuff.

I have no idea as they are from the Vendor's web page.  My stuff is 2000 miles away at the moment at the new house.  They look like wheels included in the AMT 62 TBird kit, but could also be from sports car kits.  All my kits are at the new house so I can;t get at them right now

They look like the wheels from the  Monogram Miami Vice "Daytona".....I'm nearly positive :)

That's one I was thinking of as well.  Also, a couple of the Fujimi Ferrari kits.  But, without access to my kit stash, I have no basis to tell other than photos.

Placed two orders last night - one with MegaHobby and one with Modelroundup- and had notifications that they both had shipped this afternoon. Can't wait to get my hands on them and start building. I will post pictures when they arrive.

Finally got a new hose, moisture trap & some fittings so that I can plug my trigger airbrush into my DeWalt compressor.

I can finally give my ancient little airbrush compressor a rest! ;)

I've been taking shots at this Supervan for a few years. I finally landed one. It's a clean, complete build that is not a glue bomb. Very restorable. Just need decals.
