In Topic: Formula 1 with larger diameter wheels

What is the purpose of larger diameter rims on race cars? F1 cars are going to run around looking like donks, will they have a sound system?

Other than the wheels and tires.. Jk . It seems to be a classic opening statement on here before complementing a model. Hey nice build, love the paint schemes, side skirts, did u make ur own? And the lowrider theme is nice, I like good clean lowrider a with no murals or graphics like this one :)

I have about 20 projects going at the same time. I go back and forth depending on how I feel.
 
There is some truth; buy while you can because this industry runs in batches and you never know when it will be back. I remember in the 1972-75 era it was impossible to find some AMT Trophy models. I just bought 4 1979 AMT F350s because I doubt it will return soon. I have kits that I may never build, but I have them if I feel like it.



You know what sucks? When you've finally Made up your mind to buy that one. Kit you've been eyeing, and it's not available at the local hobby store anymore. I lost count on how often this happened, therefore I do not second doubt myself on a kit I want to get anymore. It's nice to have multiple kits ain't it'?

One good way to judge building options is to check out the 1:1 vehicle on Google Images. Lots of color scheme and building variations to look at.


That's an excellent idea, I think that by simply looking online for images of the 1:1 version, you can start getting ma feel for what you want to build at that time
