Sorry to disappoint you, but I don't mean the attractive, leggy kind of model.

I was looking at my model stash a few minutes ago and got to wondering if anyone else in the unit builds model kits. I've got 8 or 9 WWII planes (both allied and German) in my stash right now and picked up a Tamiya Hanomag Sdkfz 251/1 kit when I was hanging out in Tennessee with my dad this past spring. Looking to start getting into armor a bit since I've built almost exclusively WWII planes in my long, storied modelling career. I'd be really interested to see y'all's builds (if you have any). Especially those related to WWII for, what I think are, obvious reasons.

ive been thinking about getting one of those model world war 2 ships, and then buying all the independent brass kits to make it look awsome but alas... i dont have the patients, when i start building i want to finish it to i tend to rush things and you really cant do that with those kits... the most i do for modeling is tabletop wargamming miniatures. but even that i haven't done in soo long just cause i cant get back into the ruitine..

I’m hoping to get back after it in the next month or two, but it’s been too humid this summer to paint. Takes days and days to cure.

I would love to get into making models. I think once my kids get a little older, it would be a great hobby to do with them too. My dad and I used to make them when I was younger.

Where do you buy your model kits? Do you recommend a certain website?

Squadron has good sales, but the best prices I’ve found consistently is on hobbylinc. I bought the two armor kits from Hobby Lobby though. If you go in person, they have a daily 40% off coupon good for any one item. The M4A3E8 was $50 and I got it for just north of 30. The main reasons I like hobbylinc is their consistently low prices and their rewards points system.

I'm about 90% sure that Squadron does. I don't know about Hobbylinc. They are a small operation out of Northern Georgia.
