In Topic: Auto ID #127 FINISHED!

Nope, not a supermini. This is what we class the B-class or segment. Supermini's are like the Smart and Toyota IQ etc...

 

Err... no. Supermini is the Fiesta/Audi A1/Polo/Ibiza/Mini/Jazz segment:

It may be that the Adam is actually _smaller_ than a Supermini, though for that money it's in the same price bracket...

It's a "supermini" in European terms -- but if you choose the right (or maybe "wrong") set of options, you can make that a $40,000 car...

In Topic: Stock Datsun 240z Kits?

Hasegawa Historic Car Series kit 18 is a regular Z, it seems:

And I think you could probably also make one by combining the more easily found ZG and Safari kits -- you really just need the regular nose from the Safari. If someone will cast you one, then you don't even need the kit. The ZG has a normal interior etc, and you just need to leave off the wheel arch extensions and spoiler...

 

And it's a fantastic kit, in terms of fit and detail:

In Topic: Jaguar XJ220 -- Tamiya, 1/24

09 July 2014 - 09:49 AM

Thanks so much, guys... I don't know why I've suddenly developed a "soft spot" for the XJ220, but I think it IS a pretty cool car. I think the XJR-15 IS pretty good looking, but I know which one I'd rather drive 1000 (autobahn) miles in 8 hours in...

In Topic: Why are there so many iconic cars that have never been kitted ?

OK ? In for one of these ? Lola%20GT%202.jpg 'cause we really need some more Jags, kinda like '57 Chevys. ;)

 

Yup... forgot to put Lolas in my list list. And if you know of a kit of any regular street Jaguar that's been designed in the last 30 years... just point me at it...

 

;-P
