    My Raptor Snap-Tite
    After seeing a couple of these builds pop up, I thought Id grab one and see how it worked out.

    I flocked the floor mats gray, and got the door panels painted a gloss gray. It was weird, when I tried to paint the door panels the gloss gray, there were certain areas that the paint would 'run away' from, on both pieces.

    This plastic also seems thicker. Whenever I try to file/sand something, it seems to chew through my material and paper. I decided to scrap the metal axle and kit wheels for something a little different





    I have since made sure the bed rails, hood inserts, and such fit, which everything does very well. The pictures make look a little unlevel, its only because part of my mat is warped

    I really like the Copen. I think the decals take away from the retro-ish look of it.

    All of these look like great little cars with details well highlighted by you

    Crossed something off my bucket list.my wife, son, and I drove to Astoria Oregon today and went to the 'goonies' house. Ever since I could remember I wanted to go. It's a beautiful area with great food and beer. Really nice older downtown area with shops and such

  13. blackandwhite added a post in a topic Tip: If You Buy an Opened Kit........   

    I went into a HobbyTown USA and they usually have a mark down table of kits to the likes or cars/bikes/military

    There was a Hasegawa Toyota Corolla Levin GT Apex for about $22 after the 50% was taken off. I figure I dont care much for that particular car, but for the wheels/tires and to use everything else as more of a parts kit, didnt seem that bad to me. The edges had been retaped so I figured I was good.

    Drove the 40 minutes home, sit down and open it up...there is no body. There was actually no body for the car in the box. So somehow, someone bought the kit, returned it without the body (terrible idea to accept it, whoever the heck was working the counter that day), and then marked it down without any sort of a notification. I was irate. I called and told them about it and they said I could just return it. I told them I drove 40 minutes there and then 40 minutes back only to have it exchanged? After dealing with the manager, I told him Id give him a couple of bucks, just to have it as the parts it was, which he agreed and refunded me the rest as well as discounted another kit that wasnt on sale

    All in all it worked out, frustrating none-the-less.

    Moral of the story, read all description if purchasing online, and if purchasing an open kit in person, CHECK THE CONTENTS

    I live in Washington state now but was born in Bolingbrook and then moved to Aurora. My in-laws live in Naperville. Where exactly are you?

    As far as shows/events, that area sure seems to have gotten a lot going since I left a couple years ago. http://www.ipmsusa.org/chapters/state_select.asp?ST=IL

    That might be able to help you out. I think there is a big thing going on in Milwaukee soon: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=98760

    I always am searching for events to go to wherever I am.
