I got a big box from HLJ via Fed Ex a couple days ago...An eclectic group of vintage Nissans and Toyotas, a Honda, and some Italians.

Hobby Link Japan...they were all preordered/backordered months ago, and they ended up one by one over time in my Private Warehouse until I had them shipped...

Rob, HLJ had the Civic sedan in stock?! I thought it was discontinued years ago.

Yeah, it was just reissued. It had been discontinued for a long time, seemed to be a hard to find kit for years.

No Rich, not even close to having them all. I am amazed at how many there really are out there. if you count them all I have about 620 give or take. They are not all die-cast. I have them in plastic, resin, pewter, crystal, white ware, crayon and wood. I have 6 cabinets in the house, 3 in the garage plus peg board and hooks in the garage.

Let me know, I use mostly Japanese products like Gunze, Gaianotes, Finisher's, etc...

Maybe I should start my own import business :)

20140222_075359.jpgent to hobby lobby last night with the wife. After sitting in traffic for a hour and a half we got there and the model car selection was pathetic. I did pick up some paint and new blades. We then stopped at Wal-Mart to get driveway salt. Apparently Wal-Mart isn't selling there salt at the stores anymore. Its all being sold to the road commission.

Our hobby lobby here is too...with all the reissued kits and new ones Id think they would be getting something in? Our hobby lobby came to town and had great selection and prices put everyone else out of the business...now there the only game in town and they majorly raised their prices here and hardly ever get anything in but military,planes,ships,and die-cast stuff...at least I can get paint there but makes me think there going to quit handling models or at least anything AMT,MPC,etc. almost all their automotive related kits are Revell and I rarely buy one.

I got the head of my 19 year old Chinese copy of a Bridgeport milling machine safely detached from the rest of it with no damage to me or it. Now building a cradle for the head to securely mount in on my trailer for moving. This is the last large piece of equipment I have to disassemble to move to the new location. Whoopee. The end is in sight.
