    I'm not sure if this is real or not and it's not the best video, but here you go

    This should turn out to be a pretty rare kit I got at a normal price. Just sent payment. Guy in Japan went directly to MFH to pick this up and supposedly it is not, and will not be available to any distributors online or otherwise. The 1/12 version is still available, but I didn't want to spend that kind of money, and I have nowhere to put it.

    I used solder for the posts, PE washers for the corrosion donuts

    I have the longtail with Hobby Design brake and wheel set, and their PE detail set. Makes for a pretty intricate build.

    nice build, we need more cars from LEMONS. If anyone is unclear: https://24hoursoflemons.com/

    polishing them is pretty easy. Do it, if you can, before you detach them from the sprue. Use the last 2 steps of sanding sticks, typically they would be white/gray, or light gray/dark gray. This will get them a mirror shine

    Typically you would cut it out and replace the part, but it depends. Usually you will have the wheel center, then a tab on the end of the spoke that is not on the kit part, like an extended tab. If so, then most likely those tabs attach to the backside of the steering wheel after you cut the center out

    How are you rationalizing this?

    The AMG GT is a cool kit, but I couldn't resist getting this

    The difference is free vs paid. It's free, you aren't entitled to anything. When you pay for cloud services, you should read your contract or the terms and conditions. I use the cloud for everything, but I have everything stored locally as well. I have everything in the cloud for access, but I don't trust it 100%. Servers can be compromised. There is nothing wrong with the cloud, but if anyone thinks they are going to sue a company for revoking a free privilege, then they are wasting their time. 

    it was free, you are not entitled to anything. If you lost files because of this, that is 100% on you and you deserve nothing

    Dive-Nine & Plamoz AMG GT Wheel Sets for Revell AMG GT
    I bought a couple wheel sets for the new Revell AMG GT. I really wanted the Plamoz wheels, but I really wanted the DIve Nine tires, since they have all the sidewall detail. Turns out you can't interchange the parts. I expected this, but was hoping otherwise. 

    The Dive Nine tires are hard resin, while the Plamoz appear to be silicone, or a similar material. Bother are great quality, but the Plamoz wheels are the cleanest castings I have ever seen. 
    Both sets are staggered 19" front and 20" rear in 1/24. Despite this, they are significantly different in size. Plamoz does offer a 20/21" staggered set in a different style, which should be right around the size of the Dive Nine set. 
    The Plamoz wheels are the light gray, the Dive Nine are the dark wheels. 
     
    If you want bigger, fatter wheels and tires and don't mind hard resin tires, go with the Dive Nine set. If you want the cleanest castings and rubbery tires, go with the Plamoz set. Both are great detial, but the Dive Nine will require a little cleanup, while the Plamoz require none. 





    This picture is a little off. The difference between the wheel and tire size seems ot be exaggerated, it's not as obvious in person
