MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. Airfix will be releasing a Gladiator in their Quick Build line. No idea what scale, though. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/AXJ6039?result-token=Hmuas
  2. Mundane? It is a sports car. They obviously have a working relationship (ie - paid them money) with BMW as this is their third BMW kit after the two motorcycles. I would not be surprised to see more BMW from Meng in the future.
  3. You could try sending an email to this address I found on the subscription page of the web site: subscribe@modelcarsmag.com
  4. As I've said before, one of the best places to look is the IPMS/USA site. Granted, most will be general model shows as opposed to cars only. Presently, there are 5 IPMS shows in the Northeast Region between now and the end of the year. One next weekend and the rest in the fall. https://calendar.ipmsusa3.org/all-events
  5. I was just looking for an easy swap. Of course, another idea is to cut the tailgate out of the Foose kit and replace it with the seperate part from the '56 (if it fits). Attempting to remove just the "Foose" lettering on the tailgate looks like someting I'd screw up. 😀
  6. I want to build a Revell Foose '56 F100 pickup without the "Foose" lettering on the tailgate. Will the bed from this Revell '56 Ford Pickup fit the Foose kit? They are not from the same molds as the Foose kit has the tailgate molded as part of the bed but the stock kit has a separate tailgate. I know there are other Revell '56 F100 kits with the tailgate molded to the bed, but a friend has this kit? (I won't see him for 2 weeks to be able to check.)
  7. Check out Luka Cee's build videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/ModelCarHobbyHeadquarters
  8. If I remember correctly... When the car went to the pre-race test session, the crew thought it looked like a pig. So they painted it pink with the meat cuts on it for the race. Mr. Rossi hated the livery and refuse to allow the Martini & Rossi logos to be put on it. All these years later, it was probably a marketing mistake, as it is has become one of the most famous non-winning Le Mans cars.
  9. Another one of my models to add to the list: 1/43 Starter 1971 Porsche 917/20 Sorry for the old, poorly lit photos.
  10. Here are 3 built over the last 20 years. 1/87 Le Mans Miniatures 2001 Audi R8 1/43 Vroom 1971 Porsche 917LH 1/24 Fisher 1972 Matra 670 - race winner
  11. One of the reasons we prime is to find issues such as this. It can be easier to see flaws in primer than the base materials. It is not unusual to putty, sand, prime, re-putty, re-sand, then re-prime. Nature of the game.
