You'll get a name and address. You send then a 'secret santa' gift of a kit/hobby stuff. We usually try to keep it to around a $20-$30 value range. Someone will get your name and address and you'll get a gift.

I thought it was you who sent it, no problem with the delay.   I have most of the road wheels done on that tank, A nice one there!   

The Gundam kit should get built up soon.   I need a few easy kits to get the juices flowing....

i remember the gundams you posted videos about so i tried to grab another IBO kit for you
i love those little tanks i have the king tiger, tiger, kv2 and sherman on display in my store i cant wait for the next ones. i also have the meng aircraft carrier they did in deformed version

It seems to be a good kit so far, and I do love gundam kits.  Will probably build that one soon.
