What non-auto model did you get today?

I've been trying to encourage you, but I'll back off. If you want to die with dozens of boxes of half-built projects for your estate executors to send to the dump, that's your bidness, and I'll respect it. Snake out. B)

To me, it's more like going to the trouble of getting the phone numbers of all the hottest women in town, and then never calling any of them. :unsure:B):lol:

I want to know how the eff it's your place to try to tell me when to build, criticize my lack of finishing things, and make asinine references to ANY other aspects of my life? 

We have a compact on this site: NO PERSONAL REMARKS.  I'm getting sick of it being your constant running joke that I don't finish models.

Think about it. 

Whether or not I ever finish a model is none of your concern, unless you've changed your name to Karen.

I'm not going to complain to the mods, because I'm not a little crybaby.

But one more time... BACK OFF.

The box art alone is almost worth its price!  Just got the Kitty Hawk 1/48 scale XF5U-1 "Flying Flapjack."  Along with its general cool and Weirdness Factor, the Flapjack inspired "flying saucer" reports in the 1940's, when people saw it flying around near the Chance-Vought factory in Stratford, CT.

This is the first "mainstream" plastic kit of a Flapjack in 1/48.  Special Hobby and Sword did 1/48 short-run plastic kits of its little brother, the experimental V-173 "Flying Pancake." The Sword version had a resin cockpit. Planet Models did a 1/32 full resin kit of the XF5U-1 that was big, heavy and VERY expensive.

Picked this up for something completely different to build. Yes, it was shipped only in the plastic envelope.

Forgot to post a pic of the Rye Field Model Sturmtiger w/interior

Sturmmörser Tiger, Rye Field Model RM-5012 (2018)

All four are excellent kits, Ray. After years of building empty shells, all of the new kits with full interiors are a breath of fresh air. :)

After they are built is there a way to view the interior details ?  I think I did some tank kits years ago that had interiors but after they were done you could not see much. I want to say they were 1/48 bandai kits ???

I built a few of those Bandai in the 70's. They were neat kits and I still have 2 or 3 in my stash I've been carrying around since then.

Only if you're talking about the 129 with the BIG gun. B):lol:

Sprue Brothers put this one on sale last week and suckered me right in, as usual.  This is the AFV Club 1/35 scale Vietnam M54 gun truck "King Cobra," with the hull of an M113 armored personnel carrier sitting in the bed.  The M54 and M113 are both great AFV Club kits, and this one adds parts like the turnbuckles used to secure the M113 and those great cobra decals.

I’ve had my eye on this one since it was first released. Updates please??? I’ve been pestering the wife for this kit for Christmas.

Thanks for the heads up on this. I've been wanting do do one for years, as I kinda fell in love with gun trucks a few decades back. If I remember correctly, with the American withdrawal from Vietnam, almost all of the gun trucks were dismantled and returned to life as transport vehicles. Only one I know of, Eve of Destruction, was shipped back to the States intact...and it wasn't built with the 113 hull in the bed.

Nice JT! Those 1/16 Trumpeter kits can be super detailed beyond what is in the box. Excellent resource site for the Trumpeter KT and others HERE.

A pure impulse purchase but at £9 delivered to my door it is cheap enough.... fairly detailed for the price but only 47 parts. Shame it has no figures included.

I plan to build it as the box art
