What's with the ignition wire from England, Joshua?  They make something special?

Maybe it's a replica of Lucas wiring, but does it have in-scale wiring smoke?

Kynar wire. Good stuff.  I get mine from Ping Fong on ebay.  It's much cheaper than the model car aftermarket places.

That's why I got these. They were the cheapest I found. Plus I get ten meters, and they allowed me to divide the color up. 2 meters apiece except the blue and red at 1 meter

Same reason they will send a whole parts tree for 1 or 2 small parts.

I've got the whole chrome tree for one bad part twice,  one cracked windshield got me all the glass and headlights and a busted windshield pillar got a new body and hood.  Guess its hit and miss.

Well I suspect having a decal sheet with just one decal missing off of it, in hope it could be chopped apart to fill potential replacement orders in the future is just as "wasteful" as sending you an entire new sheet.

The Lucas comments were pretty funny, but I have to tell you, my wife had a Spitfire, and its all true. I bought a second Spitfire just to keep the first one running.

My MPC Stutz Bearcat arrived today, boy I wish Airfix had bothered to but a decal sheet in their version, would have saved a lot of time masking off to airbrush the coachlines on the wings ...

MCM issue #174 arrived in pristine condition yesterday.  Another excellent issue with a terrific article featuring Donn "Old Man" Yost and Virgil "Dr. Cranky" Suarez.  I'm sure happy I have a subscription to this fine magazine.

A couple of acrylic showcases, one for the Stutz I built last year, and a smaller one for the Fujimi Porsche that is 99.9% finished ....
