The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

Modelling orders to cover your time in isolation.


Recommended Posts

This morning I had to go outside. I was able to speak with my Dr in depth regarding my own health and the virus. I may be isolated for over 6 months.

So, this is what I ordered after having looked closely at what I have and what I may need.

Here is my virus order. Show us yours. :thumbsup2:

I made a run to Hobby Lobby last week to only find they had quit carrying the Tamiya tape.  I did grab a roll of their brand and another bottle of Tamiya thin cement and a few cans of Tamiya primer. 

Came home and ordered Tamiya tape with Sprue Brothers along with some sanding sticks and various paints.  Unfortunately, either I didn’t see it, or they don’t carry it, but I missed the 40mm wide masking tape.  SO today I ordered 6 rolls from Tower Hobbies.  

I think I’m good for a while.

I stopped using the 40mm, I just get 2 rolls of 20mm now.

I was lucky to have stocked up on most supplies just before the gov't ordered non essential businesses to close. What I didn't grab, I was able to via an online order. 

Dale, I was looking at some of the prices you paid for your supplies. I thought we got hosed here in Canada! Some of those prices are close to double if not more than what I paid.

I have been ordering supplies fairly regularly here, while the one local hobby shop (mostly RC), chose to close when the shelter at home order was issued, the online hobby shops are all still on operation. I have been keeping SB and Scalehobbyist.com busy with orders. I am also taking a new approach that I am buying things I may need in the future, I now have 3 1/2 bottles of extra thin glue. And I am buying any paint I might need for anything I might build.

Same here Mark.  Placed a number of orders for paint, tape, etc to be ready for a few builds.   5he one thing I can't really find is a decent amount of #11 blades.  I use so many of those that I'm starting to get low and can't find a good resupply.   Gonna have to ration those.

All I can say is the gang at Sprue Bros and Scalehobbyist are gettin' it done! Many thanks to those guys! I stocked up for a few builds at first when I was unsure how intense the shut down's would be.

Got me some blades.  I'd love to buy some new things but no kit money these days. 

I know what you mean buddy. None left now. The I-513 is the last kit for awhile. Have all the paint I need for the tank and way to many kits....harv
