Hmmm..just scored 3 kits on eBay:

1/48 Hasegawa F-16A Netz IDF

1/48 Tamiya FW190

1/72 Revell F-14D Super Tomcat

For a grand total of around $28. Less than 10 bucks a kit! I've seen that particular F-16 boxing go for ridiculously high prices before, too.

I got a re-issue of the 1/72 Shuttle Stack off of ebay a few weeks ago for $60 with free shipping. Not Bad. Its Ginormous.

I got an old one(Young Astronauts) off of ebay tonight for $35, plus shipping brought it to $50. A steal. Yes, they are Ginormous. They are actually Dixienormous.

Last week I got a Tamiya 1/350 I-400 submarine for $15 on the clearance rack. Not my normal type of mdel either but that sub has fascinated me for years.

Finally had a nice score at Hobby Lobby. Went in to spend a gift card I got for Christmas, walked out with an Academy 1/48 F-16 for $9. I have too many kits as it is, but I couldn't bring myself to pass up a $9 Viper. :thumbsup:

1/32 Tornado GR1 Desert Storm - Revell $40. Had my eye on one of these last year and it went for $130. So I'm quite chuffed. A rare eBay auction gem.

The best deal I got in a while was two 1/32 Tamiya P-51D's for $75 each with free shipping during Squadron's last black Friday sales.

Attended the Brewer Brothers model swap meet, contest, etc. at the Yanks Air Museum in Chino. A nice little collection, by the way. First, reduced admission ($9.00), second, picked up a Revell boxing of the Hasegawa BF 109G-4 for $15.00. I am ignoring the fuel cost there and back.

For $10 bucks, a TAMIYA 1/32 F-4C/D Phantom/sealed in bags..BEST CL find of all time for me!!!!

Holy Crap! That's like 95% off! I guess I can't complain. Hueyhogfan13(above) gave me the deal of the century on a bunch of kits for next to nothing compared to retail. Again, thanks dude. I love you man! I guess that's karma in action!

I have not bought a kit since I switched job locations. Sure I'm saving LOTS of gas money but the stash has dropped to a almost reasonable level!!!!!

Good thing Tonys show is happening over in Hamilton in a couple weeks. All ready meeting two ARCers for trades once we get there.

I'm kinda glad I don't live out in Ontario because it would be so much easier to get all those kits at shows and through local trades.

Just after Christmas I stopped at a LHS in Sonora,Ca while I was visiting & picked up a Hasegawa 1/72 A3D-2 early Skywarrior. The box was open & the guy had it marked at $26 as we talked, he opens the box & says looks like the kids have been in here, can't say if it's all there or not. Gimme $4. I spied a photo-etch set in the box and I said something bout it & he shrugged & said Merry Christmas.

Upon further inspection later, I found a resin tail cone & nose cone and, was a complete kit! :monkeydance:

1/24 Phantom Huey for $10 at a show. Sold next week on E-bay for $256. What's more, the gentleman built it and sent me the photos. Best deal ever and probably best I'll ever get.

Hi All,

Just thought we could share deals that we have manged to find or found in the past related to our plastic model obsession. I know some people went crazy on the Squadron sale....wish I had on some P-51's and Spitfires. Anywho, recently I picked up some Hase 1/48 F-22's for $23.00 each and the Hase photoetch part for $8.99. Tower was super discounting them over the holiday break. They are back to $29.99 each now which is still a good price. Also didn't have to pay shipping.

Almost forgot, grabbed a 1/72 RB-36 reissue unopened on ebay for $28 shipped.

Maybe we can have a "deals" sticky made for current stuff we find?

that would be easy, as I walked into a certain LHS yesterday afternoon, and bought three kits:

* Trumpeter ME262 in 1/32 at 75% off the list price for an out the door price of $20

* the Revell 1/72 DC3 with Finnland Airways decales for about $8.75

* a Dragon M1a1 SEP for $22.50

could have dumped a couple hundred dollars really fast in there
