    I just hate that I don't have access to a band saw and a router.  If I did, I'd have all SORTS of organizing shelves, stands and what not.  These are really nice and prices look good too.  I'll be waiting to see you guy's reviews before I decide if it's for me, or if I should just build a wood shop so I can build a model building shop.  LOL!

    wow, now I feel really smart.  lol
    words tell things?  when did that start happening?  hahaha
    I'm a picture looker.  lol
     
    I still think it looks good!

    Simply suburb!

    RIGHT ON, MAN!
    A while back, there was a thread asking if there was a 1:1 car built with a model as its inspiration (or something like that).  If I had an IH scout, I would be in the garage cutting frame at this very moment because of this build!

    I love the way this is going.  The valve covers seem to be awkwardly positioned, I think something might be installed improperly.  Is it possible the cylinder heads are on backwards?  Like the intake side was inadvertently placed where the exhaust should go.
    Keep up the good work, I can't wait to see how this turns out.  The colors look great and your photography is really well done.

    Very cool!  Love the progress so far!

    I couldn't really picture the Scout as a pro touring or even just a bagged truck until I saw that pic with the wheels and tires tucked under the rear.  This thing is going to be awesome!

    Cesar, you never cease to amaze me.  It's great you decided to pick this one back up.  It's one of my favorite kits of all times.
     
    When I first saw this pic, I thought "What kind of battle axe are you building?"

    Ok, this is a bit of a stretch, but it's still a box art/grammar mistake that made it into production.
     
    Its a re-released Mustang kit that says it's fuel injected

    the end of the box shows that it's fuel INJECTD

  10. rsxse240 added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    For now, it's going to sit on the shelf. opened for inspection only, I opened the bags of parts to look at it in detail and yep, it's a cobra.  I bought it because it's one that I've been wanting for a very long time...a non-race version with full windshield.  I may start it soon if I get anything done with my VW Rabbit and when I get my real car running.

    If you're sticking with those wheels, you may wanna go quite a bit lower.

    I love everything else though. The engine is very well done!

    Great minds think alike! I too just picked up some bmf and that same cobra kit.

    Tell you what I DIDN'T get is the Möbius f100 kits. I drove 40 miles to find that hobby town didn't get their shipment when it was scheduled. Then I made another trip only to find that they were closed for the 4th of July holiday
  13. rsxse240 added a post in a topic Congrats, Blair Pletcher!   

    This is fine and good, but then there's the other side of the coin that I can already hear..."favoritism" and "You guys never pick me".

    I think it would be nice to be invited to submit, or have an "editor's choice" showcase.

    *edit*

    Look at me getting caught up in an off topic debate in my own thread. lol
  14. rsxse240 added a post in a topic VW Golf MK1 GTI   

    I just picked this kit up and started it today. It's a great model!

    You have done an outstanding job! It makes me very happy to see it builds up so nicely. I really like the bumpers and wheels too!
  15. rsxse240 added a post in a topic A more appropriate question than How many kits do you have?   


    I agree with you, however, if you, God forbid, ever have a disaster and need to claim it on insurance, it would certainly be nice to have that ledger at that time.

    *edit*

    I posted this before reading all the way to the end, I now see that my post has been covered.

    I also see, as usual in open forums, the topic has gone....off-topic, lol.

    I can't get my insurance agent to take me seriously, but I can't afford to go to another company that does. Last I counted I was well over 400 kits in my stash. I've only about 12 or so on the shelf completed, so I guess you could call me more of a collector of buildable kits than builder of collectible kits. Since I only buy kits that I can afford or just REALLY have to have, I generally have the run of the mill collection with just a few kits that might be considered as collectible.

    All in all, if I were to put a replacement value on everything in my hobby room, I'd be close to about $20,000 USD, but I've been building and buying models and supplies since 1986. So, yes, I strongly suggest getting your hobbies insured.
