Here is the topic that makes me put on the old thinking cap. What do I ask Mommy (who always gets it for me) to get me for Christmas in 1/35 scale and aftermarket products. Can you provide some ideas on what your "need" list includes this year.
thanks

I desperatly need PSP Models Corbitt and Roy Models two Dodges and how about Skybows Dodge 4X4 weapons carrier and Command car. After that, well how about the whole model shop. Or if not some of Real Models tractor units and GMC conversion kits.

What? you mean just this Christmas and not my whole lifetime!!!!!!

DJ-
Reference books are always good and interesting to read/look at.
Also, the new Academy M3 "Honey" is appealing plus all of the aftermarket goodies.
I don't really stockpile kits (I only have 2 in "reserve") so I would only ask for one .
Supplies such as paint are a must as I go through jars and jars of the Tamiya Mini Acrylics.

A digital camera and a printer/copier/scanner would make posting pics easier so let me just add those to my list.Now,these my wife might just find the heart to buy.Just have to figure out a way to make it seem as though I don't want them for my modelling activities. Any suggestions to best combo,gentlemen?

Asking for OOP kits?! That's sneaky!
I sent the relatives scurrying to find the Italeri Chaffee a couple of years ago! For some reason they don't want to pay $35 on ebay!??!

My list includes:
Armes et Militaria Hors Series items (cheaper in Canada than the US by a longshot).
Some Concord books.
A bunch of hard to find DML kits.
Italeri 234 kits.

My wife buys me figures and books. So opening the stocking is full of joy for me!

Cheers
Andy

Pete--please tell your Mrs. that your Buddies at Armorama do not think that spending $400 on models for you is too expensive.... Wow! Accurate Armour! You have good (and expensive) taste.
