What the postman brought today .... this link is open to all to post stash and recent buy's.
This is the same concept as that on the Aeroscale forum.
Here are kits that I have picked up in the last couple of months since the car bug got to me!:-

And now for something a bit different!

My Uncle is moving house and came across these in the top of a storage cupboard. They duly made their way into my hands (along with a Tamiya 1/350 Yamato, but that's for a different Forum)




I haven't done a thorough inspection yet but at first glance they appear to be complete and unstarted.

Cheers, D

I've made them both. The Vauxhall is a bit basic, but the Aston is a lovely little model considering it's age and small scale.

Very nice!

My next suggestion for a Group Build was going to be '30s and '40s, so it looks like you're already set !

Richard: I went to a hobby fair a couple of weeks ago. One of the sellers had the same AMT Olds, at a very reasonable price. Made a deal with my self to browse a little more and come back and buy the Olds. Naturaly it was gone.

Me too, inspired by one of my favourite bands


There is conflicting info on whether this is a 33 or a 34, either way it is just too cool !

I'm a fan of the Little ol' band from Texas myself.
Many years ago(Mid 80's i think), I was in a local hobby store which had the ZZ top Eliminator, from Monogram and Revell's '71 Hemi Cuda. I wanted both models, but couldn't afford both and chose the Cuda(naturally). Sure wish I had had the means to buy both models though.

For the pending 50's "Big Fins and Chrome" Group Build, I just couldn't resist!

I also picked up the old Doyusha "Nostalgic Heroes" '76 Corvette kit very cheap. It is designed to fit a small battery and motor inside so it is not great on the detail level but the body looks good and it will paint up ok.
