Not today, but Wednesday I grabbed a few odds and ends.

A Lindberg 1929 Mercedes SSK. Another "C" Classic for my collection.

The last can of Model Master Colors by Boyd Pacific Blue spray paint. This is a good match for 1950s-early 60s Pontiac V8s.

A jar of Acryl Flat White to use for mixing with some Acryl Radome Tan I grabbed at the Baycon show last a couple of weeks ago; for $1/jar, I grabbed a few jars of colors I wanted or thought I might need. The flat white/Radome Tan are suggested for portions of the interior on the Moebius Chrysler 300.

Won a 1/48 Tamiya Flak Panzer and its was traded for this, also figured out all my HGUC kits are of cannon fodder mobile suits.

Cannon fodder suits are the best. They make great canvases for customizing.

Picked up a couple of gluebombs on Ebay. Got a Tom Daniel "Paddy Wagon" and an IMC Ford GT40. Also picked up a battery powered motor tool from another site that uses standard Dremel bits, but doesn't require a speed control to bring it down to styrene levels. I've been using it to clean up ejector pin marks, smooth putty carving, etc.

Had a great weekend score on Saturday. My son and I picked up 5 new kits in trade for a 13 year old helicopter that I never learned to fly. We got 2 Tamiya Ferrari's the Modena Spyder and a Testa Rossa we also got the VW Samba Bus and the new release of the 427 Cobra from Revell and a Corvette that I have never seen before from accurate miniatures says it is a 64 prototype. All in all a great score for a toy that was taking up space and collecting dust for the last 13 years! I have wanted to build a Tamiya kit for a while now and have always balked at the $40+ price tags, too bad hobby lobby or micheals don't carry them.

Picked up AMT's rereleased '76 Ford E150 van today (reminds me of the 4x4 '78 E350 LWB Dad had/I used to haul Yaaha's to moto back in the late 80's). Has anyone actually been building one of these???
