Two things have ended on my front door mat this afternoon, from ebay a 1/43 Citroen 2CV with grooved bonnet design about 1938 so my search tells me, the design not the age of the kit!...........

And this.........it has taken just 8 days from Oz to here in the UK, after resin casting by ResinBlob64 (Glenn Polkinghorne) for me.

The Uncertain 'T' was produced by Monogram many moons ago.

Picked this up on eBay last night. I gave $5 more than I had really hoped. I have a list of "wants" and use it to browse eBay and other online sites. I had gotten some more dreary news from my doc's nurse yesterday so was feeling a bit low. Decided to go online shopping to cheer myself up. It was worth every bit of the $5 to get that little, cheerful boost from the purchase of a new kit. Hate to admit, but I'm an awful lot like I was as a young kid when it comes to new kit purchases.

These are some really nice kits too Steve.

The Revell '59 Caddy, '59, '60 & '65 Impala, '55 Belair, etc from this period were on the cutting edge of American kit manufacturing when they came out.

They're still some of the best kits out there in my opinion.

OK. Thanks, guys. I’m not a big ‘55 or ‘57 Chevy lover, unless they happen to be gassers. I always thought the ‘56 was a better looking car. The Revell ‘59 Caddy is already on my ‘want list’. I also need a ‘65 - ‘70 Impala body style kit. Don’t have any yet. I’ll add the Revell ‘65 to my list. If you’re going to get one, might as well get one that is known to be a better kit. Right? Wink

Finally found a Mr Norm's Dart kit at a good price. Paid less than $15 for it and it is a factory sealed kit. I now have the '68 Hemi Dart, the '69 Dart GTS, and the Mr Norm's '68 Dart. Once I get them built it should make for a nice display. I might even pick up another '68 Hemi kit and then do one stock and one street rod or race.

You got a good deal on that Mr. Norm's Dart as I'm askin' $20 for mine. Back-in-the-day I bought a brand new '69 Super Bee from Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge. I still have the paperwork, but not the car.

Do any of those kits have the "dog food bowl" hub caps?  If so, what would you take for them?

Got one of these at Hobby Lobby today.  Glad they finally started carrying them.  Can't wait to try it out.  Also bought a Tamiya 1/24 Enzo Ferrari kit for $18.00 which included shipping.  My first Tamiya kit, pretty excited about that also.

I really need to stop buying, but these three will be delivered to my door for only $42 total. They came from different places, but $42 seemed too good to pass up for the three of them.

Sweet.  If you don't mind me asking, what did you have to pay for it and where did you purchase it.

Won a AMT/ERTL Street Custom 32 Ford Phaeton and a Monogram Havoline Ford Thunderbird on the Goodwill auction site and bought the Revell 57 Ford Gasser (Ranch Wagon). Not into nascar models so I probably sell or trade the Havoline. When I got the 32 the box was open but all the parts are sealed and the instructions,tires and decals are still there.

don;t throw that away,i can use it!

Landed today from ebay UK.....

I dumped photobucket yesterday due to their pressure to buy extra space when they say that my FREE space of 2.1GB is used up when I've only used 0.6GB. So gone to Fotki on a far better deal!
