I could only attend today for about 4 hours and promised the SO that I'd stick to my "allowance" of about $40.

That said:

(Another) 1/72 HAS EA-6B (Shadowhawks)

1/72 Cessna 172

A couple of emodelsandmore display bases

One vendor was offering the new Airfix Nimrod at $40 - I was very tempted but maintained discipline - plus I don't have the real estate to park a Nimrod plus the EP-3E and RC-135 already in my stash!

Also, talked to the Afterburner Decals guys who said that they should be coming out with a 1/72 "Jammin Jihad" Prowlers sheet in the near future.

I also talked to the Contrails resin folks who said they might consider doing a 1/72 RC-135 CFM engine upgrade - fingers crossed!

Well, I caved and bought the Hase B-24D. I was hoping to catch one at HLJ's Saturday "we don't want to ship this stuff back to Japan" sale, but they were down to just two left Thursday afternoon, so I figured I'd better grab one. Other than that, just a few odds and ends. HLJ was blowing stuff out this afternoon, but most of the really choice stuff was gone (I did snag a few Sweet /144 kits, though..they were selling three for $20.00.)

Nope, but word on the street is that there's a really limited # of copies here in the US. And the detail is supposed to be phenomenal :)

I grabbed the F6F and F8F cowlings from Obscureco. Also got a few sets of Ham/Stand Props from there. The F8F cowl says it's for the Hobbycraft, but it fits the Testors Bearcat as well. His stuff looks good and you can't beat the price. I will be ordering some of the 1/72 Mustang wings, P-47 tail fillets and the Crusader wing in a few weeks. He had them displyed sitting on the models and the fit looks good.

From TwoMikes I got The Lightning FOD cover and Jaguar intakes.

And of course who could pass up the August issue of SAMI for 5 buck!

Is it me or does everyone on this thread sound like an eight year old on Dec. 26th?
