This could be great fun.
However not many kits in the $20.00 range these days.
But I have lots of stuff in my stash.

I'm in.

I would be in for that.

ARC does one similar to this....not really a secret Santa perse, but people "donate" kits to the over all list, and people's names are pulled out at random (not necessarily a person that donated a kit, so some might see it as unfair that way as not everyone gets a kit back sometime), and they get to choose what kit they want.

Think I missed out on it last year, but if we have a Secret Santa, much better as you don't know what you are getting until it arrives.

Idea is to take something from your stash you will never build, but if you don't have anything you can bear to part with (yeah right), then there are lots of kits out there for not much money....lots of the new and re-released Airfix 1/72 kits are going for under $12

I was thinking, after we all get our kits, we do the group build, and the only way you find out who your santa was is after you complete the build.  What do you guys think?

This'd be a great success.  I already have a kit in my stash in mind. :) Though, if there is no ceiling, I'd be willing to get something sent to my  recipient

I'd definitely vote for choosing a kit from the stash pile. I only started doing this a few weeks ago and already have a big collection of kits on hand!

It makes it easier for everyone too, since all you need to focus on is packing and shipping.

I'll be sending a kit from the stash and a few goodies. Let's completely forget the $20 thing....we'll just send a stash kit and whatever you want.

I'm in.
They've done something like this over at SSM for the past couple of years, but aren't going this year.
