Ebay tells me I've won the Aeroclub Anson C19 I was bidding on.  Pity that it isn't for me...

Not an addition to the stash but a possibility, if I can get the price down.

What would be a reasonable builder's price for this boxing of the Monogram B-36 (in very ordinary condition (definitely scuffed & foxed) for collectors)?



AU$200+ doesn't cut it with me.

It is a lot of plastic.
I paid $AU 80 for mine about 4 years ago.  The box is in better condition but then it's the '97 release and the one above is the original '80 one.  The seller might think its worth more because its older.
If re-popped now a new one would sell for $200 here, but tell him he's dreaming and don't go above $80.

Thanks, Fred! That's what I thought but I might go to $100 as it's the Salvo's, even if they are cheeky shooting at the ebay "buy-now" average price. :thumbsup:

Having accepted an offer from Gondor of some B-52 upgrade parts for my B-56 build, I was a tad surprised when the postie arrived this morning with a MASSIVE great box!  :o

Not only did it contain a lovely DB mouldings B-52 upgrade set, but about 99% of a whole Monogram B-52 kit as well!  :o :o

AND most of a Hasegawa B-47 kit too!  :o :o :o

Alastair said he thought '.....they'd come in handy for my conversion.....' I'll say they will, I couldn't ask for better.

Thanks Alastair, you're a true gent.  :thumbsup:

Your quite welcome Kit,

The kits and bits had been sitting around for years gathering dust as it were so your need for parts allowed me to donate them to a good cause.

From Evil-Bay I got an Eduard 1/72 Messerschmitt Me 110D.  I intend to hack this up and reassemble it asymmetrically.

Uhhhhhhhh.........      :unsure:

This showed up either 2 or 3 days ago. I'm just now opening it.



??????


I have NO clue why this is here. I'm not missing any orders from anywhere. I had a canceled order a couple months back and ol' boy said he lost the kit, refunded me the money, but would send it along for free if he found it. This can't be it, though, because it's a different kit and these people live in different states hundreds of miles apart.

So, perhaps this is someone I bought something before from and they accidentally printed another shipping label and sent this on mistake or something? I'm going to go through my purchase history to see if I can match up the name and location to anything I've bought recently. Strange.
