    MPC Stroker McGurk Surf Rod Kir Review
    A look at the re-popped (first time in 40 years) Stroker McGurk Surf rod kit. Awesome retro kit from the Hot Rod Magazine heyday.

    Bandai AT-AT 1/144 Star Wars Build
    Another kit done, these Bandai kits are just pure pleasure to assemble, never one fit issue, never a lack of detail. Light weathering

    That Suburban makes me happy every time I see it.

    Now to get/make a camper kit.

    They did the same with the Transport Trailer, it was out for a bit, they discontinued it really fast and two months later or so it was back and has been for some time now.

    Hopefully this comes back when they sort any issues out.

    Am I missing stuff on this thread?  Bunch of posts and pics gone?

    Well, each person has their opinion on this stuff. I think they look fine, but I'm sure you have your reasons for not liking the ones in this edition. Thanks for the info, you know a lot about these kits.

    What's 'sad' about the tires?  I thought they looked nice, tread, branded, even sidewall callout detail.

    Toxic Pond Dio, My Homage to 50s B Horror Movies
    Made this dio from Reaper Bones gaming figures and 1/35 Tamiya soldiers, barrels with model railroad scenery bits and bobs. DAS clay for the shoreline,  clear casting resin tinted with acrylic craft paints for the pond.  

    Supposed to look like the old late night movies where some toxic waste leaked into a pond and the turtles, snakes and fish mutated and are attacking.

    I'l be getting one. The only Chris Craft models I have are the RC versions by Dumas and while gorgeous, they are not shelf friendly, they take up a lotof space. 
    A nice small one will be more fitting in the display cabinet on the main floor.

    Gorilla Glue CA brand has a bit of give to it, that may help with it not snapping off.
