In Topic: Deora - Reissue versus Original kit?

27 May 2015 - 10:20 PM

Looks like the Deora's being reissued: AMT-926 Dodge Deora Concept Car


Here is hoping that Round 2 backdates this kit and puts the original parts back in that have been deleted over the years. The bed cover and the clear canopy for sure.

Might make an interesting diorama pushing a western style Delorean  like in one of the back to the future movies.


AMT/Ertl put out a version of the BTTF Delorean with the train wheels and a short section of track. I have a blueprinter issue with three different BTTF cars in one box.

It's 1/25.  This is interesting.  Might have to check this one out.  I figured it would be 1/87 (HO) or 1/48 (O).  Must be pretty big in 1/25.
 
Oddly Round2 still doesn't list any 2015 MPC kits on their Website.


It is big. The rail bed base is about 2 1/2 feet long. Cool kit for sure.

In Topic: Okay, Revell gave us the '32 Ford and is now readying to get their '2...

Deuce, model "A" , '27 Tee's,a series of '34's would work and then some '36's ? I know, AMT and Monogram have them covered, but we're talkin' new ground here, Just like the Revell '32's.  ;) 


I would far rather have them come out with an all new tool '35 Ford rather than another 36. The 35 is a far prettier car than the 36. Lots of people like the grille on the 36 better but the 35 grill is much more appealing IMO. So bring on a 1935 Ford coupe!

No argument there if you've been made aware.  In the cases I mentioned, these had been regular neighborhoods until a cabal sprung up and had enough clout & numbers to force this excrement on the others.  Seriously, you can't handle seeing my work van outside my house?  And you get to dictate the shades of a given color I can use to paint my house?  


HOA's seem to be a distinctly US thing. Haven't heard of any active ones up in Canada so forgive me if these are dumb questions.

How does it work if it is a regular neighborhood that you already live in and then they start an HOA? Can they force you to join and/or comply to their rules? Or can you tell them that you were there first and within reason you will do what you want on your own property and to your own property? and as far as fines go, if a police officer gives you a fine for speeding you have to pay it. But if a self appointed enforcer of an HOA gives you a fine do you have to pay it or can you tell them where to stick their fine?
