Late on a Saturday night (last night).  Took a break from binge-watching "Mr. Mercedes" to check eBay's "Ending Soon" items.  Saw this Jo-Han Eldo for a reasonable opening bid and shipping. With NO BIDS after 7 days!  The auction was ending in <2 minutes. What's the catch?  Photos showed it looked complete, with most parts still on the sprues. No visible tire burn on glass or parts.  I took the plunge and bid the minimum, won it.  Will let you know if there was a catch when it arrives...

I got my electrical power back after six days. Fortunately, my son (who lives two miles away) never lost power after Irma roared through.

With the Stash at 130+ and not really going through them at a reasonable speed, I've been warned multiple times from the boss not to get another kit.

Couldn't resist this one though... looking forward to building this kit... looks like a challenge.

it's got a full engine, but I don't know why, you can't really see it in the finished kit...

But it has the Engine to Build and that is the most fun, Thanks for the answer.

Got a couple more I've been after for a while. This little Pinto promo is the non-hatchback. Combined with some later chassis bits and engine, it will be a replica of my old street-racer / slalom car 2-liter...another stripped and lightened shell, with 40mm Weber siddrafts, headers, cam, light flywheel. She surprised a lot of BMW, Datsun and Porsche drivers.

And a not-too-bad built Toyota 2000GT convertible. Complete, and no glue where it would be hard to fix. Fell in love with them way back when. Beautiful sounding little engine.

I really wish Round 2 would (or is that could?) reissue the MPC Toyota 2000GT kit.

VERY nice!!  -I'm about half way done with mine right now, been a bit slow though since i'm on the final assembly stage of my Aventador, but if you don't mind a little advise, I don't suggest even sanding any of the body parts, let alone painting them, until everything else is assembled, and finished(apart from the "A" pillar piece that attaches the doors to the interior tub). I think I have beaten the "parts-fit" issue, and if I goes well, I will be posting a video on how I did it.

Yes, and if they tooled the coupe body and wheels they'd have a perennial seller.

That above is what I really want in 1/25th (or 1/24th) scale. Even that color. I'd like it to the options LHD, like the real ones imported into this country.

The other day I stumbled across a POCHER RIVAROSSI PORSCHE CARRERA 911 1/8 scale. Unbuilt all parts in original bags untouched.

Maybe a few finger prints but that's it.

To build or not to build is the question. Never thought I would ever see one in real life.Never mind owning one.

Nice!

The '59 Fury is a real gem when you can find one with the interior.

Finally bought a kit. Stopped by a shop I don't go in often. Stuck in a corner on the bottom shelf was the RoG Trabant 601 Universal and was the old price from when it was 1st issued several years ago. So snapped it up to replace the stolen one. Got a bottle of Testor's semi-gloss black also to check out, figure it'll give me one more black texture for the palette.

Another Hobby Lobby run today....another C7R.....I like this kit and a couple bottles of Vallejo blacks . Will likely do this one up as the 2016 IMSA car like the box art but with the corrected areo package. And I'll probably get another one to go with the SMS set I'm getting myself for Christmas to do the Le Mans car.
