The Dukes of Hazzard - the Croatian way!

01 October 2014 - 01:01 AM

 

This occurred a few days ago in a small town on the Croatian coast...

The 58-year old female driver claims to have been blinded by the glaring sun and did not realize the draw bridge was being raised :P

What's fascinating, even though it must have been quite a shunt because all of her airbags deployed as a result, is that she continued on her way as if nothing had happened, and was found by the police 15 minutes later casually sipping coffee on a terrace of a cafe-bar! :D

 

 


Ferrari 348 kits

23 September 2014 - 03:50 PM

I realize there are plenty to choose from out there... Made by Revell, Italeri, Hasegawa and Fujimi, in various versions as far as I know.

However I recently purchased Revell's ts (targa) version, and immediately noticed inaccuracies in the interior, specifically the seats and center console.

I do know Italeri's kit is pretty much the same, but I was wondering how the Japanese kits compare in terms of interior detail?

Thanks in advance :)

Any football fans?

OK, OK... I meant "soccer" :P

The 20th FIFA World Cup, taking place in Brazil, is kicking off tomorrow... With a Brazil-Croatia match, no less, and I'm as excited as I could be by now!

I realize this "strange sport" is not as popular in the USA, but it has been a while since a World Cup took place your side of the pond (USA 94, I believe), so I was just wondering if anyone here shares my enthusiasm? :)


This should raise a few pulses...

Recently there was a topic going about WRC drivers as the most skilled/insane drivers in motorsport, which I agreed with to an extent, until today...

While I have heard of the Isle of Man TT time trial race, I have never before heard of Irish Road Racing...

If you think rally drivers are cool customers, check these guys out... Literally flying along regular countryside/village roads (closed for the event, of course), without significant protective barriers, only inches away from each other, houses, stone walls, trees, spectators and everything else in-between, at speeds of up to 200 MPH on two wheels!

They really make Moto GP look like a retirement home trackday outing :P

 


Question about Monogram Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta kit

07 March 2014 - 03:13 AM

Which car is this?

I googled, but could not find a pic of a real car that looks anything like the box art model...

I am now confused... I'm no expert on Ferraris, but according to online sources, a 250 GT Berlinetta looks totally different!

Which car is this a kit of???

Thanks :)
