    Not so much in the car areas, but they have touched on sci-fi and figure stuff a bit.

    Their main business is in re-releases and they must be doing OK on it.  They have stepped up the game on tires and decals, which is more than some other companies are doing on those fronts.

    Someone just paid $130 for an open box Flameout that isn't in all that good of shape.

    The General is an awesome kit. HUGE too.  I'm so glad they are bringing it back.

    I would love to tackle something like that kit sold at Monogram prices.

    These work pretty well too, and go down to modeler sizes (granted not as small as the MM kit). I them to punch decals and plastic all the time.

    I haven't personally used this set, but it's an option too:

    New look doesn't bug me. Whatever the owner chooses to do that works for them is fine with me.

    I like it. Not every kit has to be serious. And a parody/fantasy kit can't be endlessly criticized by the nitpickers because it doesn't have a real one to compare to.

    I have the re-release. Will try to do a video this weekend.

    The pad printed slicks look GREAT, I can say that much. They are two piece, but not bad at all for a parody model.

    Thanks man. Yeah, grills you don't have to hog out are awesome. Glad they are doing those more often, or I'm just seeing it more often.

    Here's my video review of the kit.

    If you are familiar with the late 90s GPs you'd know they look absolutely absurd with no spoiler on the back. Like I said, it happens. People try to save a few cents on weirder things. Or they just hated the look.

    Either way, there was an option to not have something that cost next to nothing it is my point.
