In Topic: Decals for Magic Muffler Fiat - Awful Awful/Fuel Altered

31 May 2015 - 10:26 PM

Thanks Curt for the information. I've ordered 2 sets

 

BTW: I'm currently working on a 3D printed chassis for a Fiat Toppling like the Magic Muffler Fiat  or other AA Fiats attachicon.giffiat frame.jpg

As soon as I get it I'll take some pictures

I got the chassis from Shapeways. It is bent a bit so I have to redesign it. I'll keep you informed

In Topic: WARNING! Cavalier Australian resin kits!

26 May 2015 - 04:15 AM

Yes those tires are a night mare as long as you have something that looks like a tire in the kit. I have all of them an in 5 of these kits the tires is  black sticky fluid. I also have in somekits like the Torana LX5000 resin tires. Either some of the previous owners of this kit changed them with resin ones or like in the newer ADR Distribution kits there are where delivery with resin tires.

 

I also find out on the 3 that I had build the the tires look like a tike but they stick to the under ground.


In Topic: Correct German Number Plates

Thanks Christian,

 

you can also make german an austrian license plates online http://www.kennzeich.../germany.eu.php

 

Sorry it is a german site

 

There is one important seals missing which is on both plates. It is the seal of the country. Like on this site http://www.licensepl...many-234.html?=

 

The AU seal is no longer necessary. This means that on the front plate is only the country seal, and on the back plate country seal and TÜV seal. The color of the TÜV seal change from year to year  


In Topic: GT Ford resin?

Dave,

 

there are a few kits available down under. All kit are out of production so check out eBay australia

The best resin kit is from 

ADR Distribution by Cavalier Model Productions http://www.cavalierm.../ResinKits.html:1971 XY GTHO Phase III 

Not so bad is the one from CJ a  1971 XY GT

The worst is from Jaymar a 1971 XY GT

 

I got the ADR one see picture. The only negative point  are the decals

1971%20Ford%20Falcon%20XY%20GTHO%20Phase

 

 

I also had one of those crude and crappy Jaymar body. Don't spent any one on any of the Jaymar kits The are a piece of BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH

 

If you want to got to a diecasts I can highly recommend the XW GTHO Phase 2 (http://www.topgear.c...?product_id=689) and XY GTHO Phase 3 from Trax. The last one is out of production. But check again ebay austraila. 

 

If you want an alternative like a XB or XC checkout again Cavalier the got a nicely done Coupe's. The XC is also out of production. XT and XB can also get from the parts box http://www.thepartsbox.com. You can get the XB sedan also as Max Rockastanky' aka Mad Max MFP Interceptor.

 

Hope that helps
