Christmas has come early
« on: October 08, 2019, 12:46:38 PM »

Need I say more?





These were dropped off by a visitor today and I had the absolute pleasure of cleaning the boxes and pricing them out. I think I may buy a few myself.

Are any of the B-17 models the one that had the clear side you could do to see the inside? I had one many years ago. It came with a trolley of bombs and guys to make a diorama.
The two in the middle remind me of the box.

You got it Bombs. That’s a $85 model btw. A visitor came in and dropped off all of these for free and left. I’m probably going to buy the majority of them and then stow them away in the attic for safe keeping until they appreciate in value.

Nice haul.  Enjoy the kits.

Sorry to go O/T kinda.  There is a new 1/48 B-17 coming. It will be more expensive, but she looks nice if the CAD is anything to go by.

Holy cow, three 1/48 B-17s. That's massive.
I also see a 1/72 Greif on the left. That must be an interesting model too, even though probably there's not much engine details.

Surprisingly Mike, that model has a optional engine bay build for it.

That's extremely cool.
I've built countless plastic kits when I was a young boy, but we've never had anything with that level of detail.
Heck we got excited already when we could grab a MiG-25 from Hasegawa, that's been about the only source where you could get anything beyond the scope of Revell/Airfix/Matchbox mainstream models.
