  1. OK, but I have all three of these vices. Got a bunch of wood working tools, all portable on carts. Constantly wheeling them between the garage or my hobby room because I change moods so fast on my hobbies. Got a '66 Mustang GT Fastback in the garage as well. I try to keep the "wood collecting" to a bare minimum, but got a stack of short poplar beams in my way in the garage right now. And don't get me started on the firearms collection. I'm currently trying to cull the heard on all of my hobbies and scale things back, but no success. Just yesterday I posted a kit for sale I haven't touched or seen in 10 years. Went to take photos last night to add to the post and wound up deleting the post!
  2. Probably 250-300 in my stash. A lot I bought at either bargain prices or grabbed them because they were no longer available or from a cottage industry. Some I got caught up in all the hype of the newest kit out. Surprisingly enough, some I though would go away are still available. Trying to rethink if I really need 9- 1/32 Phantoms in the stash and three already built. Or 5 or 6 F-16's with having already built 8. I did place an ad here the other night for some that I know I just will never build. If I can successfully move these, I'll give some thought to moving a few more.
  3. Starting looking at the stash this weekend and realized I would have to live to be 385 years of age to build them all. Picking out some that if I were to build, I would have to 20 others before I built these. Some I have just lost interest in. Basing my prices off what I have seen these kits sell for on eBay and other forums. Prices do not include shipping. I would like to keep these in the CONUS please. I take PP or old fashion MO. Please add 3% for PP fees. Kits have been opened and fondled unless noted as still in shrink wrap. NEW ADD: 1/48 Revell B-29. $45.00 $40.00 NEVER OPENED Still in shrink wrap. 1/72 Monogram B-52 Big, Bad and Beautiful. Kit is open, all there. Typical shelf wear for a kit of this age. $85.00. $65.00 1/48 Academy CH-53E and 2 sets of the Flying Leathernecks decals. Still in shrink wrap. $175.00 $145.00 1/32 Zoukei-Mura P-51. $85.00 $70.00 Back up for sale at a reduced price! 1/32 Trumpeter A-10A. $75.00 $60.00 1/48 AC-130A. $75.00 $65.00 1/48 AC-47. $40.00 $35.00 1/48 Revell P-61 $15.00 1/48 Revell B-25J. $15.00 This is all for now, but might be posting a few more if these move. I can be reached at ssmith at mailbox dot sc dot edu.
  4. I do have one, it comes in the kit. There are soooo many parts and pieces that are not used for either the SUFA or my Korean AF, you could almost write a book and sell it on how different many hidden parts there are. Let me look at what I am going to need for my F-4 Kurnass and I'll let you know. Might not need them at all. I did give away the two Pythons already.
  5. I bought one of the D kits (Korean AF) and I have the SUFA boxings as well. Same exact kits with the exception of instructions and decals. I found some goodies on the sprues I/m using to build a USAF reserves D with the Sniper targeting pod that came in the box.
  6. Wow, this is a great database of info! I had no idea all this info was there. USAF 87378 F-16D Block 30H USAF 87375 F-16D Block 30H Naa man, that's half the fun! Discover decals and set out on the hunt for the kit and parts to make it happen! EDIT (again...) Thanks OP, now I'm giving it some real hard thought about buying a 4th SUFA kit to build this one too.
  7. Use the Academy SUFA kit, Comes with every part possible to build just about every 2 seater known. No conversion needed, and it comes with the P&W and the GE intake/exhaust.
  8. I was fortunate enough to get one of the later Navy AD-5W conversions just before the disaster struck.
  9. Paul mentioned something about masters having to be a hair larger due to shrinkage of the resin as it cures. He had a lot of us, including myself volunteering to send him back out kits and parts to make new molds.
  10. Paul mentioned on LSP that he is looking into other options to bring the business back on line but with less work. Like making and remaking masters, but contracting out casting, packing and shipping to others. I'm sure he is still up to his neck with rebuilding or relocating. That in itself is probably a 2 year project at the least. God willing if he does make it back to the market, I won't be hesitating to pull the trigger on products I put off on buying. ...And the wife wonders why I don't wait to buy when I'm ready to build.
