Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. Today, I got my power back and the great realization that there is no property damage for me. Today is a calm, sunny, warm day outside and I JUST got my power back about ten minutes ago. I am so happy right now. Last year I went forever without power and it was horrible. Right now I have power while only being out for a short period of time. I am ecstatic. Wow. For any other members here up in the NE quarter of the country, I hope you have been able to survive.

So pleased to hear you are o.k, the storm and it's aftermath are all over our news channels here in the U.K

Ordered a Scale Auto i/24 th Audi R8 GT3r body kit from the local Slot place. I'll have it in my grubby hands Monday when the order gets it.

I picked it up, and it is as detailed and complete as the other three bodies I have bought,( Porsche GT3 RSR, BMW M3GTR and Jaguar XKR GT3) with a better roll cage to boot. It looks like it will work very nicely on the Revell Audi R8 kit chassis and interior. Now to decide on markings....Patto's in Australia offers several different sheets, though I am hoping they will do the Rolex Grand Am series livery as well.

Two sealed and one open but bags inside are factory sealed ... Might hold on to them for awhile ... But man I sure would like to build them all ... We will see ... I'm betting they get built ... That's why we buy models right ?

And one of Ed Flucks L88 hoods for my future 72 crew cab dually project. Need to get me a couple more of these. They're NICE.

Ignore the truck in the pic, I just used it for a mockup.

Went on a little splurge today. Got a fix of Model Master paints in the 1/2 oz bottles. TWO bottles of each colors, both Enamels and Acrylics. post-10524-0-40590900-1351815311_thumb.j

Enamel colors are as follows : Red Gloss, Marker Yellow, Brown Gloss, Green Gloss, Silver Blue, Field Green Flat, Dark Sea Blue, Flat Yellow, Fire Red Gloss, and Orange Gloss.

Acrylic Colors are War Flesh, Ghoal Flesh, Green Drab, Ogra Green, Goblin Orange, Magical Blue, Kirin Yellow, Standard Navy Grey, Dunkelgrau and Angel Green. Alot of these will work when I dab into the Military WWII Tanks and Armor. Now I can try both Donn Yost and Andys methods both.

Then I got some bottles to put it all in lol. Two oz bottles with the Yorker caps.

I picked up the 66 Mustang from HobbyLobby with the 40% coupon today, mainly because a post here told of the excellent Polyglas tires in the kit. I will probably trade it off (minus the Polyglas tires) as I have a couple of Mustang kits already (I think, if I can get into the deep storage!).

I also dropped a note to Round2 to plead my case for having the Polyglas tires released as a set separately, similar to the slicks, so I don't have to buy a complete model kit just for some tires.

I tried to get an airbrush hose that would fit my Testors Mighty-Mini air compressor, only to find that the fitting is some mongrol size and has a pilot shoulder at the end of the threads that make any hose fitting ill-fitting.

The airbrush, a Paasche H, has a teeny-tiny thread that nobody makes.

The only alternative I'm left now is to buy a 1/4" thread quick-disconnect for the compressor end of the hose and a new air compressor...

So much for painting this weekend.

Our model club had an auction today. I got a Lindberg Daytona Coupe built up with the wheels from a Fujimi GT40 already installed. It's primered and built clean so it shouldn't be too hard to make into something nice. Plus i got a daisy Duke Jeep and a Ford Thunderbolt Fairlane kit.
