In Topic: How Old Were You When You Built Your First Model

10 July 2012 - 04:22 PM

Wow ya all beat me in starting to bild models, would U belive m eif I said I didn't start until I was 24 yrs old or somewhere around that age and that is because before that I was into (when I had the spare time) fishing, scouting, bush walking camping and all those outdoor stuff etc;. When I lost my license as an interstate coach driver and had to work in a factory to get money I then had to look for a hobby that didn't need a vehicle to get around and seeing that the LHS was walking distance away I swung into model building and mainly trucks.

In Topic: "American" cars?

10 July 2012 - 03:59 PM

Well I drive a car where the doors, front and rear fender where made in Japan, the hood roof and bootlid made in Australia, the motor and trans (5 speed) also in Australia, the rims again in Australia and the tyres well only God knows where they may have been made as there is no "Made In " label stamped on them at all. The car I'm talking about is our Mitsubishi Magna a car where the Mitsubishi name is Japanese and the Magna name is Australian so figure this one out oh yea I almost forgot it is built and assemble in Australia by a mixture of workers from around the world.

Man having a diecast car hit U that would hurt, even a plastic one is bad enough guys, I'm glad I wasn't underneath it although if I was it probably wouldn't have been as bad, then again it might have been worse as I could've thrown it in fright of wot it could've been in the dark hey. Oh at least we all OK an survived our little crashes I just wish I couldv;e done better with this rig BUT with some parts missing it's a bit hard.

In Topic: How important are panel lines to you?

06 June 2012 - 05:15 AM

Harry say that drawing the panel lines on a model car makes it look horrible BUT when I look at my real car which is white guess wot the panel lines R black and it doesn't look horrible so I gather it's wrong to put black lines around the panels even thouhgt my real car has it so wot do I do when the real thing has it and the model car can't, please tell me.
