    How about a 411 4-door? Believe it or not, but I've always liked that car.

    I'd like to see 1/25 or 1/24 scale VW Type 181. The Thing.

    I have both the GMC and Chevy in waiting. My question is what color is the color engine? I know it's green. But what shade of green? What is close in Tamiya spray cans? Which is what I like to use.

    That above ☝️is what I'm looking for. A nice factory stock Datsun pickup truck.

    I tried a tube of the Hypo Watch Crystal Cement. It came with a thin wire built into the cap that went into the tube itself. When I went to put the cap back on the tube, I could not get that little wire back into the little hole it came out of! For that reason I was unable to use the stuff. Recently I've been using that Bondic UV setting glue. It's clear and does not effect clear plastic in any negative way that I've seen so far. At the same time, I still like Testors Model Master Cear Parts Cement. Been using that stuff for what? Twenty or thirty years now? With no problems.
    The Tamiya Extra Thin Cement? I only use that in early pre-paint subassembly work. Like other Tamiya products, I've been very happy with the stuff. But, have never used it on clear parts because of my experience with other similar cements in those applications.
    Last, I've heard, but never tried, dipping clear parts in something like Future floor polish before gluing. I've heard that if you do that, you can use "regular" model cement with clear parts. And the cement will not fog the clean parts then. I haven't tried this. So I don't know if it's true. I curious what others know about this?

    Just got my 1/25 Kenworth W900 Aerodyne in the mail today. Revell kit 85-1507. I like what I found in the box. I also recently got its sister, the 1/25 Peterbilt Model 359 Convention Tractor. Revell kit 85-1506. Very simple in many ways to the old AMT semi truck kits. Yet the details look pretty good on both. Like the old Revell/Monogram 1/32 scale semis, they look like they'll go together with few problems. And look nice in the end. Have start some subassembly and test fitting of parts on both kits. I pleased with what I'm seeing.

    I really wish Round 2 would reissue both 1/32 scale AMT Ford semi trucks.

  13. unclescott58 added a post in a topic 1/25 Revell Kenworth W900 Snap Kit   

    I just ordered one of these this morning. I love Revell/Monogram's 1/32 scale trucks. Seeing the instructions on Revell/Monogram's web site convinced me to buy one. It looks like an easrier build kit than most other 1/25 scale truck kits. Nice to take a break from the other more complicated/detailed kits.
    By the way, does anybody out there know what year this Kenworth is suppose to be?
