      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

    Revell 1979 Z28 Camaro
    I've just won this on e bay, and wondered how it builds up. I'm not expecting great shakes as it seems to be from the 80's?
    I can't seem to find out much.seems to be a version of the Street machine Camaro.
    Cheers, Daz.

    Great work on the engine and door cards Ben.

    True. I painted the body first as the chassis is silver.Also it gives me a bit of motivation on the rest of the build ☺

    Awesome build out of a kit with the worst flash/sink marks/mold lines I've ever had the misfortune to buy.
    You've created an amazing custom.

    Cheers guys. Don't really know much about drag regs. I'm determined to see this one through and make sure it doesn't end up on the ever growing started and stalled pile!

    VW Beetle Gasser
    Next one started.😉 Memorial collection Beetle. This is a two way kit. Stock or Double A/Altered.
    I've gone with the altered.Stretched pan with a 426 supercharged Hemi.Doors bonnet and boot all open and it's pretty well detailed as a '70's Gasser. Just going to wire the engine and should be good. Paint is Green metal flake.  I haven't clear coated it yet, but it pops like crazy in the sun!
    Cheers, Daz.

    Great stuff. Really captures the look.

    Wow! Absolutely perfect.

    Love the paint job and wheels, looks great.
    Only thing with the kit is the rear bed. Aoshima seem to be out of whack with the bed height?

    That really is inspired, The decals and build is spot on.

    Esci Dakar G Wagon
    This turned up in the post this morning ☺ Esci G wagon that I won of of e bay for the equivalent of about $23 still sealed. Going to open it up and get started this evening.I'm going to fit an external cage etc and maybe some lift. People confuse the Esci release with the full on raid racer that won the Dakar, but this is a support vehicle for the Yamaha XT550's that competed that year. Looking forward to building this one.
