I got a brand new Iwata Eclipse HP-CS gravity feed dual action air brush that I love.  Next thing up, a new compressor.

I finally ran across a “Miss Deal” kit on eBay for considerably less than usually found there. Even though “Miss Deal” never existed as a 1:1 drag car, the kit really intrigues me. I figure I’ll build it close to box stock. It should go well with the rest of the gassers, F/X cars, and early funny cars I’ll have in my collection.

Picked up a Revell wrecker kit. I had wanted the regular glue type kit, but saw this Snaptite at an already decent price and a "Make an offer" option. Got it with my first offer so got a really good price on it. It'll make another great option as one of the first kits I build.

Although going against my recent selling spree of all car kits of 1/24 & 1/25 due to lack of space my youngest son has always wanted a 1:1 of these in this colour to carry his mountain bike a gear around in. He does cross country on his bike, wereas the eldest son does more downhill.

He was looking for a decent reasonaly priced second-hand one, but he bought a BMW 3 series touring wagon in the same colour!

The mailman just delivered this. I wasn't in the market for another one, but I was browsing eBay a few days ago and saw this one. Delivered to my door for under $14. I just couldn't resist. This one might get painted and finished exactly like on the box.

Just a couple of thoughts. First, free is good. I like free. But don't discount websites that charge a small fee. I know that a few of us use Fotki for posting our photos. I do and have had ZERO problems with their site or their policies.

Next, from some of your previous posts it appears you might be trying to do everything on a smart phone. You might want to reconsider that and instead use a PC. I have over 30 years in the computing industry and I'll be the first to admit that I really struggle trying to do even simple tasks on my phone. What you see on your smart phone isn't necessarily what you see when you're on a computer, on the very same website. Generally, there will be more instruction and things will be more apparent on the computer versus on the phone.

Just a thought.
