Last time I shipped something I sold the post office made me put a return address on the box so if we use USPS we will know who sent us what since we are mostly on first name basis around here.


When I shipped mine, I left off the name; just put my address. Most people don't know everyone's address.

I think September is the best time to consider this and get it started. As Modelcrazy said, gifts should be shipped after Thanksgiving. Names should be issued some time about two to three weeks before Thanksgiving to give time for people to shop.

I'm in if this gets off the ground.

Right soooo is everyone on the aforementioned list still interested? And is there any new interest?

If y'all are going to do this, it's getting close to the time to start finalizing the rules lists ETC. The drawing is best completed on or before Thanksgiving (November 25 this year) to insure the gifts arrive before Christmas.

Just message me your name, address and your whish list. It's better to have more than one wish, and I make up a spreadsheet to send to Ceaser.

That helps the gifter choose what he or she can afford and gives the giftee a little surprise on Christmas day.
I personally usually just put down any 1/72 Luftwaffe for example, any 1/72 Airfix, 1/35 German armor ETC. One year I sent a list of about 10 specific kits, all under $30.

Alrighty men,
Price range is anything below $50. Keep in mind shipping costs, so I would advise not jumping too high. Keep in mind though, you will be receiving something in the approximate price.
Names will be drawn by ModelCrazy. Names need to be in by Thanksgiving (US).
