Summer is a great time for road trippin’, and nothing makes a trip better than getting some good sprue along the way. I did well on a two-pronged trip in August, and I just got the stuff organized. I thought it would be fun to share my haul from Michigan to Hamilton , Ontario!

Check it out at the link below; if you thought I had eclectic tastes before, well… just think that now I’m going from Barbie Vette to nuclear missile, and all points in between!

Checked it out and voted, looks like you had a lot of fun trawling through the hobby stores along your road trip.

It will be great to see which kit comes up trumps in the vote, it is a great oddball bunch!

Cheers, D

Adam,
That's some haul that has something for nearly every car modeler and even two kits for the military crowd as well.

Like D, I did vote for my favorite kit. I'll give you a hint, it's a car kit.

Yeah, I was really stoked about the haul. I wish there was a Sci-Fi in there, just to round it out.

Ironically, I did get the Crusher Joe Minerva kit about the same time, but it was a special order, so I knew it was coming. Not the same thing as digging it out of a shop, so I didn't count it.

My personal fave is also a car, although that Ginga is super, super sexy! I can't vote, since I made the poll, but I'll say that the one I'd chose is one that might be a variant of something I have lots of. Just saying...
