  1. Belkits Opel Manta 400. Test Shots

    Could be, cuz first they were retail (brick and mortar plus Mail-order) only, and since a year or two distributor too.
  2. Hello from Germany

    Welcome, from a friendly neighbor.
  3. Belkits Opel Manta 400. Test Shots

    Most likely due to import fees (entering Europe) and half a world of transport, then there's the currency issue....which all add up.
  4. I wonder if the mold is busted.

    Just guessing, but it looks like the "problem" was catched during the run, and the quickest fix was to run some additional (to be plated) trees and clip off the the needed part. Then after the run (full or short) I'm sure they will fix the tool, anyway that's how I should do it....
  5. Belkits Opel Manta 400. Test Shots

    Briefly visited a hobby show today and talked with one of the Domino/Belkits rep's there, and the Manta won't be available till next year. While the kit is in production as I write this, they did had a small delay due to a licensing issue, nothing major, cuz the run should be done by mid next week...but it pushed back the release date a bit, so early 2018.
  6. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Steve, is that what the Volare/Aspen morphed in?...anyway looks like the designers put in the headlamp/parking-light housing upside down, Ford did it better with their Crown Vic's, boxy..yet still stylish...
  7. What would YOU like to see as a model

    In the early 80s Chrysler cars were boxy and dull, but then suddenly the '87 LeBaron happened, and put Chrysler back on the map in Europe, coupe and convertible.
  8. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Sorry, but no....too fishy for my taste, I guess.
  9. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Personally I'm not moved by today's offerings of the automotive world, pre- 2000 one could see and say, this is an American/European/Japanese/Australian car, now one has to look at the nameplate. Truck wise, the once tough looking outdoor fun and work vehicles, turned into an fashion appliance with too much brightwork, bling bling show off vehicles...Tonka toys for "grownups"
  10. What would YOU like to see as a model

    STOP IT Bill! No one, I mean no one, can share the same notion or have the same wacky idea that a '77 Olds Cutlass is a great looking car , but then again what was again, the best selling nameplate back in the day?? BTW for some reason that one and the '72 Buick Century are the only Colonnade style cars I truly like, the Pontiac versions for instance do absolutely nothing to me, and the Chevy Malibu only sparks some interest when it has ample open cargo space (Elky) From the Ford company I like the great "marquis" from their top of the line big cars, especially those with hidden headlamps, like the '76 Mercury Marquis brougham, '77 Ford LTD country squire Looking at the Chrysler corp, I'm voting for the '74 Dodge Monaco but also '76 Plymouth Fury and also an all new tool, for the Coronet from 71 on to 78 when they carried the Monaco nameplate, can't think of a car more widely used as a police vehicle as that one (except maybe the Ford Interceptor from the end of the 20th century) but then again it was probably the government way of keeping them afloat until Iaccoca took over...
  11. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Maybe you can by combining Monogam's '87 Turbo T-Bird and one of the pre-facelift T-Bird Drag cars. Think that's what Art did, back in the day of AAM.
  12. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Bill, the more you show this T-bird the more I want it. anyway do hope more big cars of the '70s get kitted, maybe they were unreliable and slow, but then....there's still such a thing called nostalgia, especially to us who were kids in the '70s, they were the cars we grew up with, no more no less......
  13. Revell DE 1st quarter releases

    The only other 1/24th scale Unimog that I'm aware of is the one by Lassen project. Sadly it tanked, too bad cuz the next version was on the design table....
  14. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Dunno...whenever I watch the news or close my eyes I see a Ford Econoline cab....
  15. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Plus unlike the FB's, they're a cheap canvas for those who wanna be a race wannabee , both 1/1 as in scale. But I guess the market's isn't waiting for such a kit, the baby-boomers only seem to embrace, nostalgic re-pop's of kits, they had as a kid. Sigh...
