I got a couple of cedar wood pieces from cigar boxes at a tobacco store. I plan on using them for paneling on a woody or planks for truck beds. Best part is they were free. 

 

That is a great idea Benjamin. I'll have to look into getting some of that wood.

 

Thanks for sharing the idea.

Got these off eBay (Yes, again) there both enthusiast kits, £11.99 for the two ... that's around $18.00,

I have the Cabriolet, along with a few other kits from the Enthusiast Series.  Nice models, just wish Fujimi had been a bit more enthusiastic with the instructions.  All those extra pieces and parts (compared to the 30-50 part standard Fujimi curbside) and a rather bland and underwhelming set of diagrams that aren't any different from kit they've done.

I know what you mean, I had parts in the kit that the instructions didn't mention, I grabbed the instructions from the Turbo kit I have, and they show the parts that the Cabriolet instructions ommited ..... also the side repeaters needed to be 21mm from the bottom of the sill and 3mm from the front of the door shut line, no mention of this in the Cabriolet kit, but clearly shows a diagram in the Turbo kit ....

My first Tamiya kit - Morris Mini Cooper.

My dad had a Mini back a looooooong time ago. He used to work for a garage and this was a car with no engine that was there the entire time he worked there. He says he asked his boss who it belonged to and apparently it was just towed and left there one night. So my dad bought it for $50. He researched and found an Austin Atlantic engine for it, JAMMED it in the engine bay, and screamed around town. Everyone who knew him some 35/40 years ago still mention (first) the car.

This is a 1/24 scale kit and looking at it with the cover up, I can't wait to get into it. I knew 1/24 was smaller than I normally build (1/25) but I didn't think by that much. I also knew the Mini was a tiny car, but I didn't think it would be this small. Here, by comparison, is a picture of the body for the Mini side-by-side with a 1/25 59 Chevy I built this summer.

The door panels are lined up with each other in this shot. I can't wait to start this one, but I have WAY too many un-started kits before I get here. When it's finished however, rest assured these two will sit next to each other in the display case.

Nice Mini kit, you'll enjoy putting that one together, just a few mold lines on the body to remove, but the rest of the kit just falls together

 I hardly ever buy stuff anymore. But....

 

I have been carrying around the left over parts from the Young American dragster I built as a kid. Figure close to 40 years ago. I probably had enough to recreate it. I lost out on a lot of E-bay bids on a boxed original. When the reissue came out I told my wife I was planning to finally get one. This is what was on the table when I came home from work. That there is a good woman.

The reissue and my collection of parts.

1/24th is actually larger than 1/25th.

D'oh. This is why I shouldn't post past 1am.

Well, there you go. Even more astonishing how tiny this car was in real life and how small the model will be (or how large the 59 Chevy was, take your pick).
