I haven't been building for a while but I have gotten some new kits.  Two are the grail's I've been looking for




The 70 is molded in Yellow but I've only seen them in White so it might be a different issue which as far as I know they had only one issue.  Got a bunch of airplane kits also, just seeing how the hosting works here.



I'd like to see the sprue shots and instructions on those.

Mitch, I don't have the instruction sheet for the 65 but I do for the 70 and they are both off the spruces but are complete and in bags which I did check when I got them in. Would you like the instruction sheet for the 70 ??

More hole in the head. LOL

Picked this lot up while visiting John in SLC Utah.

This one I won when John entered the 1:16 Model A Police Sergeants car (by proxy that is) I built as a gift for him into the IPMS Model Zona, Phoenix Arizona model contest in the 1:16 catergory and took first place. I told him tp keep it as the cost of shipping it to me is to high but this trip he insisted that I have it.




These three were gifts from John. Thanks Bro!







And these I bought:

Already built one, decals weren't an issue at all. I dig doing decals, never really understood all the anxiety about doing them. Of course if you are going about it all wrong each time then ya I get it.  I built this about 5yrs ago.

Got these at the show this past weekend. Already have a few but the prices at these shows are hard to beat.

Actually the only ones I didn't already have were the Lotus and the Jag, lol.

Got these in the mail yesterday. 5 full rolls and a partial, more then enough to last me a life time of building.



Remember those hand held label makers from the 70's-80's that made up a label with white raised lettering like a credit card that were also self adhesive tape. Will these are the rolls that where used. You could get them in widths from 1/4"-1/2". I beat some of you are thinking  'ya so, what do those have to do with building models'. About 8yrs ago when I was building a race car and scribing numerous straight lines using layered up masking tape I thought to myself, 'there has to be a better way to scribe straight lines'. Then I thought of this stuff, but had no idea what it was called. The thought was then forgotten until a recent conversation with our new member Faust, revealed he has been using this method for years and the popular brand name of this stuff is Dymo Tape. A quick evilBay search resulted in a purchase of the rolls you see posted here. So a huge thank you goes out to Adam aka Faust.
