      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    -I only tried the 1mm pen so far, and so far had fun "chroming" headlamp buckets from kits which didn't have those as separate parts on the chrome tree.
    kits like Tamiya's Jeep Grand Cherokee, Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC, MB 600 SEL and S600, etc.......

    Thanks for posting what might have been, Dave.
    A pity that the tool is gone, but...then again the market isn't there anymore

    Great job, the only things I would've done different is dirtying the windshield showing the wiper marks and the backlite would be sugarlike christals on the packagetray..
    But that's just nitpicking cuz the body weathering is outstanding!

    I  agree, stunning absolutely stunning
  6. Luc Janssens added a post in a topic 1959 Dodge kit, will it happen?   

    I'm not that knowledgeable on Chrysler products of that era, other that I like their styling, the same way the American public did, when these showed up in the showrooms at dealerships round the country. 
    The question here is, when taking the skin off, how much is common and thus interchangeable between models, brands and from what production years, then with that in mind, what is possible with clever tool design (engine parts, chassis parts, interior parts, body and components and clear parts) for subjects for which there's a healthy demand.
    Maybe the knowledgeable Mopar fans here, can shed some light on this....
    Hmm...this almost sounds like a $250k+ question

    Maybe, they're better off, making an all new one with a whole slew of siblings (to spread the investment and risk) they can use the Jo-Han promo kit in the design process, scanning it, checking the scale and enhance it with detail, and parts we'd expect in 21st century kit.
    Anyway this pure speculation on my part, but since one steps into a minefield, by just mentioning Jo-Han, an all new kit IMHO is the only way to go without having to worry about loosing your pants.....

    The European version of Jo-Han, with one slight difference, the tooling wasn't sold fro scrap, but kept.

    Think I built that one in the late 70s, was it motorized?

    Bang for the buck

    Did you enlarge the headlamps, cuz they "seem" bigger then I remember from building the kit, back in the day...
  14. Luc Janssens added a post in a topic Revell Starsky & Hutch Torino - Has Anyone Encountered This Problem?   

    Just checked it, and to my surprise it's available in Europe as well, so ordered me a can, to try it out.
