Today came my EBAY purchase of the BRONCO T17E1 STAGHOUND A/C MK. I (LATE PRODUCTION) CB-35011. In 1/35 scale. This I plan to do as a Cuban example using the

STAR DECALS  AFVs in Cuba #1 sheet. Cuba purchased 25 ex-Israeli Staghounds from 

Nicaragua in 1956.

More kits today:

From TAMIYA another Sherman; their M4A3E8 "Easy Eight" European Theater in 1/35.

Yes, I realized that the Korean war "Easy Eight" wasn't the correct version for my

Cuban Sherman project so I got this version.

Also from TAMIYA; their M3A1 Scout Car in1/35. This has markings for two Soviet

Lend-lease vehicles plus what looks like an early WW2  U.S. version in two-toned camouflage. I saw an interesting decal sheet by STAR DECALS that offers markings

for the M3A1 scout car and the M8 Greyhound in Swedish markings as used by their

U.N. forces in the Congo. I've already ordered them.

If you want to find a rare Tamiya Sherman, look for their re-boxing of the Asuka Easy Eight kit. They threw in a set of figures and charged less than Asuka did for the same kit. Tamiya also released the Asuka Firefly in a similar package.

Just arrived today:

Just can't have enough Spitfires and Mustangs. Of course, I know John B feels you just can't have enough Corsairs.

Awesome kits and as of late, it's  getting a bit harder to find them - just seems to go with the times

Keep 'em comin

Same here, I would be all over it. I grew up maybe 10 miles from Grumman's in Bethpage but never saw a Tiger, just before my time and by then, they might have been assembling and flying the jets out of Calverton.

Keep 'em comin

Today came a kit from Polish kit maker IBG Models; their Chevrolet C15TA Armoured

Truck in 1/35 scale. It looks like a nice kit; being nicely molded and includes photo etched

parts. IBG also makes this truck as the "Otter" Reconnaissance car. The Otter

version is on my list of future purchases as being weird and ungainly-looking it has caught my interest. I've included a picture of an otter.
