Wooden tongue depressers.

Oh wait, they aren't tongue depressers. They are 1:25 scale surfboard blanks, that's what they are!

The De Soto is for size reference:

They are exactly 21 scale inches wide. Perfect!

My wife gave me my first airbrush which is a Badger Anthem and an air compressor as well. She also got me a bunch of tools between those I got a buffing and polishing kit, a couple of Alclad paints for my chrome parts, a Flex-I-File kit and a Chrysler 300 kit from revell. I picked the car kit to make a present for my wife since I know it's one of her favorite cars.

...great place, new Mustang was $22 + tax and the '69 Shelby GT-500 was opened but $14 + tax.

Both kits will be SCCeh'd, I was going to strip a built '69 Shelby but now I don't have to!

Picked up the Revell Lamborghini Countach LP500. Two bottles of Testor's/Boyd's Orange Pearl and Tamiya Clear Orange spray. The tires in the kit, well I can't say what I'd like, but they're terrible. They're cheap and look undersized. So, I need to find some better ones. Rims too probably.

Nice little truck. It's old but I like the body style. I've been looking for an '86-'92 supercab. (No carburetors for me). 1986 2.9liter V-6/auto. Runs good, a/c is all-new, converted to R134. Very clean and I got a good deal on it; traded a pre-'64 Winchester Model 70 and some cash. Will be a cool vehicle to mess around with.
