  1. Anyone who wants one of those Chargers would be the customer who didn't see anything wrong with the original Pro-Modeler kit
  2. Can't remember the last time I bought on ebay, cuz shipping from the US to Europe has been going crazy, as are the import duties, which take all the fun out off it. Now I again hop at brick and mortar stores or at shows, but since Covit-19 BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH I haven't bought anything, just the opposite, gave 300 kits in consignment with a specialty dealer nearby.

  3. Dunno what's going on, but asked a friend who happens to have one of these on his bench and he says, that the tires which are included in this kit fit the rims and backings. so maybe they're newly tooled tires or they retooled the rims (maybe Tim Boyd can investigate).....anyway he send some pics to show they do fit. Cheers Luc
  4. did you built your as per instructions, or it possible to build and paint the body as a unit?
  5. a Good planning on the part of the powers of Round2 they're giving the tool a good run!
  6. Funny...before Round2 re-released those old amt/mpc/ertl trucks, they changed hands for much more and no one really complained
  7. Dear hobby friends,


    Remember January 1st?... Wishing your loved ones and friends all the best, in this which we thought would be a great new year!
    Now we know better, in fact, the roller-coaster ride is still not over, but in these uncanny times, we find comfort with family and friends and keep our sanity through our hobby, in this case, the love of building/collecting plastic scale models.
    Through this pandemic model kit building together with other "classic pastimes" gained momentum, and I'm thinking maybe a good time for us ambassadors of this Great Hobby here on the Model Cars Magazine Forum to help trying to find out the definition of that perfect kit in whatever segment.

    So here goes...
    What makes you decide to buy a certain model kit, is it?
     -subject matter/theme; muscle cars, sports rally, cars, pickups, hotrods, racing, classics, boat, plane, other...?
     -does the box art sometimes make you purchase something you really didn't plan to, if so, give an example of such a kit?
     -does the manufacturer brand influence your buying choice, and if so, which is your preferred and least preferred and why?
     -what do you love about building a model kit and what's the least favorite part of the process?
     -does a high parts count scare you as too much of a challenge, or does a low parts count make you feel the product could be toylike?
     -what type of kit do you prefer (glue, snap, full detail, curbside)?
     -do you like building options, and if so, what (engine upgrade, choice of wheels, decals, other)?
     -if you wish to give manufacturers a "non-subject matter" suggestion what would it be?


    Now, something totally different, let's assume you had all the money in the world, a very understanding wife, thus no boundaries whatsoever and would like to start up an automotive collection, which 7 (real, NOT model kits!!!) vehicles, one for each day of the week, would you like to own, operate, have on display in your exuberant mancave... whatever...like, for instance, a replica of the Chrysler Norseman!

    Thank you for participating in this little survey!

  8. I'd like that under the Christmas tree, but think Santa this year won't come
  9. I'd like the Volvo N10, but with plastic chassis and axles....but doubt it will ever happen, not a question of wanting but more one of too much of retooling costs.
  10. Opinions are only good when they can be motivated, click here! if you dare, Ha!
