I would love to recive a Gamma Goat. Have most other kits but have never seen one of these. Do they make a kit of this vehicle that is not above the laypersons Wages so Accurate Armor if they have one is out. Also would love a kit of the new Big Howetzer the Marines used as well as the Army in Desert Storm. Have the Long Tom and 105 from AFV would love to do a arty dirorama.

A Gamma Goat! Lord, would I like to see one of those. There most useful contribution to the military has been as targets on bombing ranges. Watch out what you ask, you just might get it.

Cliff--am I that transparent? Have my Gamma Goat emotions and flashbacks effected my dealing with my fellow modelers?

DJ,
Just because you remember when they had brown tanker boots is no reason to think that you are really that old... WHen are you going to challenge yourself and build something modern??

John

actually DJ and I am fairly similar. Like me he remembers the bad vehicles from his military service and I remember some from mine that I would never ever build as a model. Also what does the term "MODERN' mean. Do you mean that WW2 vehicles are not modern? But on the other hand my model supplier here in Aussie thought I was mad ordering 6 Italeri closed cab, 5 Tamiya open cab and 2 Heller GMC-CCKW truck kits all at once as well as Eduard and Verlinden detail sets for them all to.

John-- there is plenty of brown on my Tanker Boots , but it is not shoe polish. I have the entire M 60 and M-1 series tanks on the shelf and can not bring myself to start them. I promise to do more in the coming year to "modernize" my collection. The USMC M-4 Sherman is almost complete and I am finishing up the LVT 4A. My next build is the Tamiya M-26 in December. So I am slowly coming into a new era.

DJ,
I figured as much... You are just working your way up to the "good stuff" :-) Need to get some polish on them Dehners, considering the price that you (and I) paid for them...

John---I am getting a Canon S-230 camera this Christmas. You need to get a good digital and post some photos of your work.
Are you back now?

DJ,
I am back but working on another project... on Ft Belvoir. I have a Nikon 885 and can take lots of in progress shots and very few of completed projects as AMS runs rampant on my modeling table... Let me get off of my 4th point of contact and snap some pics for posting for comments or critiques.

Some of those casting molds by Hirstarts ( http://www.hirstarts.com ) as an excuse to help my son plaster half the dining room and maybe it would be nice if someone made an EXACT scale M35 and M54 in 1/35 ?!
But most of all, a good health to my family and my friends at home and at Armorama, a better economy, OBL's @$$ in jail, peace to the world, less poverty, even more fun at work, better care for the environment, inspiration and time to write that book I'm dreaming of since I was 18, ... hey, Santa ! You still listening ???

That was real nice. I think the main bit should be OBL's @$$ in jail and lasting peace everywhere in the world is a real good wish list. Also good health to all from Cliff & family Queensland Australia.

Man, sabotshooter, I have managed to build the first five, but the Peace on Earth thing is still pretty evasive. I have trouble keeping peace in the house with all of the kits I buy.

Man guys,
Lately I haven't had much time to build. The first four kits are for a Viet Nam Dio I've been wanting to do. The Peace on Earth thing is so I can get time to build some of the kits I've been stockpiling. Someone needs to be sure that we do a post of what did you get after the big day.
