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!
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
