Nice pick-ups guys! Paul, are you authorized for power tools?
Only when I'm drunk

Wow, nice scores guys. Now that I'm caught up, here's what I got during my vacation to Florida...
Some of this is stuff I got from my sister but most is what I got for myself. Then I also got something from my nephew that I'd been waiting for since August...
Okay, here is what my sister got me:
The clamps are actually small models you assemble and then can use... I like it!
These are my scores that I got at John's Models in Pensacola. He is now the only hobby shop left in Northwest Florida since Bobe's Hobbies closed down. I was able to get these from John's:
This next set of items is a set of wheels for a British Matador truck in 1/72 scale. It is a 3-D print that was done by a guy on Missing Lynx and has offered the first seven ones for free to anyone who asked. I have a Matador that is missing a wheel so when he offered a set I requested it. This finally came in and he even threw in a set of British refueling cans:
Finally the thing I'd been waiting for. One of my nephews is a Reaper Drone pilot who spent a year or so flying combat missions from the Horn of Africa. On one mission, he had an American flag loaded onto his Reaper and flew it on a mission. I now have a flag that is certified as having flown during a mission. That was in August and I was able to pick it up on my trip in December:
That's all I got for this year at Christmas. I got quite a bit to keep me going for awhile anyway. The Q-Ship and AH-56 I got for a Group Build on another Forums that is themed "Kits released before 1972". Or Ancient Kits as I like to call it.
Stay tuned, there's more to see later. Right now I have to go open a new Maddog Manufacturing Thread for 2021....
Here's some more goodies. The first is a nice haul from VMS which was ordered late November and finally arrived yesterday. Was good to open the box as I'd actually forgotten what I purchased
Next up was some Vallejo snow product and Deluxe Materials - Icy Sparkles. These will be used on the current diorama. I've set up a sample board and will do some experimenting prior to applying to the base.
Gives me the shivers just lookin` at it......i reckon that pile will expand about another foot when you open it , once them tiny sprues appear which all the Miniaaaaargh breakable bits come on escape ...........ya not going etch as well are ya Si
