I picked up a Monogram '70 GTX kit (open and missing the decals), a Revell '66 Chevelle wagon (sealed) and another Revell '70 Road Runner (sealed) at a swap meet today. The show was 95% diecast stuff, but the plastic kit prices were still ~$10, and one person had recent AMT kits marked @ 2 for $16. Didn't see any Revell '57 Chevy 150 kits, though...

I hope you all realize you'll NEVER finish all these kits!!! eheh

Someone mentioned a Sopwith Camel .. is that a Ford?

I had the UPS truck really humping out here in the boonies this week... a 10 year search ended for a resin 50 PLymouth! (see kit reviews), MCW paint for the 56 VW Kombi bus ... sand green/palm green (my Dad's and what I learned to drive on), a Revell 06 Dodge Magnum SRT8 (gotta love a car company that chops tops in the showroom!), MCG disk brakes for the 32 channeled, sectioned and widened Ford along with their Spiderweb photo etched grill soon to be sectioned in half to fit grill. Best of all was a find on the shelf of the only LHS within 70 miles .. the AMT Competition Engine Pack! .. wonder if that Allison will fit in a VW Bug?

Off the web I bought some MORE Detail Master fittings and sanding sticks. The reissue Soupy sales kit. Locally I bought some Satco TF rear tires, some killer 5 way shoulder harness sets by some unknown [to me] company.

Got to drilling my Garlits SR 1R fuel lines for the top of the hat. I'm building a chute for it today but I had to go outside and wash my car since it was FULL of salt. My SS has looked sad all winter. Took a skate around the block to break in a new set of 70mm downhill wheels.

I'm wearing shorts and Vans!!! WooHoo!

I picked up the Tamyia paint carousel. This is going to come in real handy. It was 20.50 at my LHS. Not a bad price at all.

Went to the nearest LHS (about 90 miles) and picked up some more model master water paints, a few gadgets and the revell special edition 68 charger and 70 nova wile the wife was shopping for the kids. Man is there a lot of stuff in those kits, not many like it that I've seen around in wile. Need more 2 and 3-in-1 kits I think.

Ordered about $100 worth of supplies from Micromark (cutting mat, Polly S paint remover, sanding sticks, #11 blades, and a big paint organizer).

I can't buy any more kits until I finish a few more in my stash. Boss' orders. :lol: I will, however, be easy the Polly S to redo the model of the car in my avatar.
