In the US we say MERRY Christmas.

And I ordered a large scale boat and a large scale plane for myself and a Kyosho Blizzard.

Hello, I got my Christmas present a little early this year. The New Hangar 9 P 47. I didn't like the no guts no glory name from H9 so I renamed it The Undertaker(I am a Funeral Director hence the name).

Premade boat.

Aquacraft V24. Nice and simple. I looked at some Warehouse Hobbies stuff and some Bonsi boats but I really liked the V24 and it's features and price. With all the deals Tower is giving out I got it for $649 shipped w/ $15 gift cert, free two day shipping, free folding utility knife and a 4 oz bottle of oil.

It won't be as fast as those other boats but it will still be gobs of fun!

Mary christmas, and a happy new year to everyone in here !!! From me and my brother, mother, father, grandfather, fiance, my hamster lillplutt, and puff the little squirrel, fox my grandfathers crazy.. full speed always.. nitro juiced dog (finsk lapphund.. black/little gray) and bozz my parents little footballpro pekingese We all wish you all the best !!!

What i got for myself is nothing bigscale this year, i got some nice moabs xl and 40size rims for my little electric Tamiya toy, and i got to my brother... ehh, cant say cause he is in here from time to time, sorry. But we both have already got very nice presents for our parents and grandpa, so we are of this thursday or friday to enjoy christmas at our parents place, with presents and our electric cars and my newest bigscale that will try out snow for the first time

So i hope everyone will have a great christmas, and a just as nice new year. The best thing about christmas is spending that special moment in the year close to your family, that is the main thing. The presents are a nice plus though [sm=thumbup.gif]

HAPPY HOLIDAYS ALL!!! Wife bought me some more power bench tools to add to may collection in the garage. This time it's a 4x36 bench sander with a 5" disc on the side. I had to get it for her since the box was so heavy.

A micro heli would be nice to get also also!!!
