Welcome back and thank you for the quick show. Looks like some very popular and sought after kits. I spent the morning looking for a putty scraper and all I could find were box cutters.

Being a fellow modeler, I would gone for my x-acto knife instead of a putty knife. Just a thought

Cheers

Yeah.. good point. Mine is actually upstairs with my workbench up there. But I should probably start thinking about putting together a kit for down there. I think that area is mostly going to be for painting though. When I get that far.

Cheers,
Jim

Get a hair cut, just because its not as warm does not mean it can be left.

Interesting that SKP Model has once again failed to include an amber option** in their set of WWII era vehicle reflectors even though they have clearly included them in their modern vehicle kit.

** Forward facing reflectors on the CCKW loadbox were amber NOT red.

Great show, Jim... though painful to watch you bring a putty-knife to a box-cutter fight! I kinda’ took a visual inventory of your workspace and swear I could’ve found some other tools to open packages with... oh yeah, how about that bench grinder? 🤣

Cheers!🍺

Or at least use your keys, much better than a putty knife.

I realize now it was the entertainment factor along with trying to figure out what the heck the kit/item is when he opens it. I must admit it, I get more enjoyment watching him rip open boxes followed by try to explain what it is he just opened. A call out to the companies that ship items to Kitmaker, please make it harder to open the shipping box(s)

Cheers
