In Topic: Large scale Lambos/Ferraris

Looking at some of these Fujimi kits, I noticed a lot of them that have what looks like gear assembly for a wind up car. Was this an option, and did it effect the overall look the detail of the car?

 

I mentioned in my PM, but yes there was the option to have it be motorized and for the front and rear lights to illuminate. The motor parts don't affect the overall look once built, but it does create some difference in how the engine and transmission look compared to the real thing (mostly just the lower section).


In Topic: Aoshima Mitsubishi Pajero 2dr rerelease, *Pics in post 12!*

Kit has been released finally! Just received mine, and it was about 29 bucks including shipping through Hobbylink Japan.

 

There is a good parts count for being a curbside (typical Aoshima quality), as well as a few extra parts similar to the Tamiya version with sport options (front off-road bumper, extra set of wheels, roof rack, rear ladder, extra driving lights). TIres are the excellently molded Bridgestone Desert Duelers, and everything else appears to be well molded as well. I plan on combining this with an old Tamiya kit so as to make a full detail version of the SWB Pajero/Montero.

In Topic: 1/12th COPO Camaro just getting started

Are you doing COPO 9560 (aluminum) or 9561 (iron L72)?
 
Don't forget, the kit's Rallys are still a correct option for either. B)


I know the Yenko came with the Rally wheels standard, but didn't the COPO just come with the body colored steel wheels only?

In any case, I'll be watching this build since I love watching people build these 1/12 scale kits (plus this isn't the usual pro street car either :P )

I think it should just be "automobiles, race cars, big rigs" as the main sections, and have tags to furthur split them up. Would make it easier for the people who like to see all, the people who want to see something specific, and everything in between. With tags though, they should be mandatory and there can be certain specific tags that can be chose from.

I agree on the scale tags as well, with the tags labeling the kit scale rather than just large scale or small scale. That way, since the site search function makes it tough to search by just scale, it would be easier to sort by the size you're interested in.
