    That quote in the title is what a guy behind the counter asked me today at a hobby shop.

    I said "yes".

    "Here ya go."
    Then he reached under the counter and gave me a over flowing plastic bag of about 12 1:72 scale plane and jet kits. He said that some guy came in and asked if the store wanted them. The don't do much scale modeling but mostly RC's. So now I have months of builds ahead of me that were given to me for free.

    They are all old MPC models where most of the decals look to be unusable. I will post the pics of them when I have the time soon. They are not golden finds. The saber and Mig21 have been jets that I have wanted to build so I'll work on one of them soon.
