  1. I built this kit several years ago. Halfway through I had a major problem. I bought another kit and ended up finishing it. My only 100% completed model ever, while I have at least 2 dozen started. a couple years ago, it got knocked off a shelf. It was in a plastic display, which I think added to the damage. a bunch of little stuff broke off. I bought a 3rd kit, but haven't started it. Someday I will build it again, it's my nemesis. I don't usually care for yellow, but it looks incredible on this car. Your build is going well, looking forward to seeing it completed.
  2. I'm pretty sure he works for, or is the owner of Alpha Models. He's been spamming multiple forums promoting the kits. When people complained, he started posting build pics, which I'm fine with. Not that it matters. Typically, the only place to see a lot of these high end models built is on Facebook and Instagram, and a lot of forum members don't participate on social media. He is also crediting the builder. Edit: I realize this isn't an Alpha Model, but the transkit from Hobby design, as well as the resin figure. Hobby Design and Alpha Models are owned by the same person.
  3. I am surprised nobody has posted the 356 RSR yet. Built by Rod Emery, a friend of mine helped with the assembly and painted the car. He also paints cars for Rod Emery regularly. He has a shop out here by me.
  4. Not a fan on muscle cars, but Pro Touring and road racing is another story. Up to a certain point, they serve a purpose, after that, it's just for looks. Some people have different definitions of big. Just put new tires on my truck yesterday. 275/45/20. I like the looks of 22" wheels on the truck better, but it's built for handling, so I stuck with 20's. I have a decent size sidewall since I drive it all over, including 700+ round trips, so it has to be practical and not blow a tire on stupid dips. It served it's purpose as a work truck for 10 years, now it's my DD and it's fun. Rear 3 link with coilovers all the way around, front and rear sway bar, upper and lower control arms, built tranny, higher stall converter, 4.11 gear, Posi, intake, headers, tune. etc. Still a long way to go, but I can enjoy it how it is right now. If I was going to spend serious money on a set of forged wheels, I would likely go with 18s and more meat.
  5. The best turbo chargers, hands down, are the Hobby Design ones. Super crisp detail, no flash. No idea about a Procharger
  6. Don't bother, they seem to have dropped off the map. Try Splash Paints
  7. I ship to the UK all the time. Last box was 10-12lbs and was under $100. $75 is ridiculous for a small package like that. He either has no idea what he is doing shipping wise, or is trying to take advantage
  8. Any interest in an Esci BMW M1 Procar?
  9. Here are a few I noticed were not on the list. Hobby Design: http://www.hobbydesign.com.cn/ Plamoz: https://plamoz.com/t/new C1 Models: http://www.c1-models.com/ USCP - Ukranian Scale Cars Production: http://uscp-ua.com/ EightyOne: http://www.eightyone81.com/
  10. Jim (DPNM) sent me the kit I claimed in the PIF thread right away, received with no issues. Sorry I didn't acknowledge right away. I posted in the off-topic lounge regarding the other details.
  11. For those of you I left hanging in the Pay It Forward thread, my apologies. I've been dealing with my business, and my dad's business, trying to figure out ways to drum up work while trying to follow our shelter in place order. It's been a little rough to say the least. Anyway, I just wanted to reach out and make an apology, it's not like me to disappear like that, and I definitely don't like leaving people hanging. I reached out to Kennyboy, who claimed my kit. I will be shipping his out tomorrow. I received my kit from Jim right away and should have acknowledged it. I know a lot of you are going through similar troubles. Hope everyone is able to hang in there.
  12. Followed this from start to finish. Truly the most insane build I have ever seen. Literally scratch built from nothing. Pretty incredible
  13. Hey sorry guys, got tied up with family and work. I'll post a pic in a bit when I get home, but i have a new Tamiya Ferrari 360 Spider up for grabs
  14. Quick GMC

    1960 Falcon

    This is awesome, I really like this
  15. Pictures don't do these justice, the detail is incredibly sharp and clean.
  16. Odd question, but does anyone know how old he is? I found a few things online, but don't want to post them and start rumors or anything
