Christmas List - ONLY ONE ITEM !! 21 Dec 2017 12:10 #13

Top of my list is the 1/72 scale C-17.
Which I had hoped would be out by Christmas, no such luck.

I didn't know they were coming out with a 1/72 scale C-17. I want one too.

But the top of my list is one I've always wanted:

Aurora's ancient kit of the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car. That is one I'll never be able to get.

I have it on my list, just didn't pull the trigger.
I am not confident enough to spend that much money and screw it up.
I do have some Anigrand kits - C-140, YC-14, F-108, Martin P4M Mercator.
Now, Kinetic is to have an injected kit coming out.
I have seen computer pictures of the design and parts break down.
It will be a late Christmas present form Cinda.

I don't think I've ever seen an Anigrand kit built up. Cindy gave me a coin sorter or Christmas and will all the buckets of change around here, I think i can pull the trigger on the XF11. :pilot

I have a good friend that was an instructor of safety and fire control systems for the P-6M in the late 40's and early 50's at Martin In Baltimore. On of the kits that I would like to build would be the 1/72 XB-51 from Anigrand. That would really make his day.

That was a funky looking bomber.

It was either that or the B-52. Again politics won out but this time it wasn't a such bad deal.

Actually that was supposed to be a CAS bomber, replacement for the A-26. The Canberra beat it out and gave us the B57, which Martin actually ended up building so it was Win Win for them. :pilot

It's a minor grail for me, which I have been looking for at a reasonable price for a while. The only B-26 kit that is of the F and G models with the increased wing incidence is the Hasegawa B-26F/G which was only released once so far. Yesterday I weakened and ordered one from Amazon for more than I wanted to pay. Really, I have way too many kits!
