  1. Looks a lot better than mine. I had a lot of trouble with the bed. The fit was just awful.
  2. You have a point; I thought something looked off about the car. Like, it had the look, but not quite.
  3. The new 1971 Olds 442 kit from Revell Germany. I love the kit and have nothing bad to say about it. It's easy to build and comes out nice. The German kits also have color instructions which is nice. I got a nice pre-order discount which helped my pocket a lot.

  4. Looks good. I got one of the pre-painted ones and was not impressed. Gotta re do it one day. The 1:1 car is pretty sweet too.
  5. Cool, but I can't do pricey. It's getting to the point where I can barely afford the hobby now. Prices have doubled since I started building. Now I can only get a few kits a year instead of multiple.
  6. Cool car. Wish the kit was a larger size though. Looks great.
  7. Got this at Ollie's awhile back. Nice little kit. SAM_1330 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_1331 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_1332 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_1333 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_1334 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_1335 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  8. Nice. Kinda been wanting to get one.
  9. Missed a photo SAM_1294 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  10. Got this with some birthday money last month. I saw it on the Revell site and thought it was beautiful. The kit isn't bad. The color instructions were nice. The kit is molded in orange and black, which wasn't cool. The engine is easy to build and looks nice. The underside is flat except for the area where the front and rear wheels go. There's two flat pieces with arms for the tire pegs. There's also another flat piece that glues onto the front flat piece With that piece glued on the front piece will not be flush with the underside. I had to do some work to make it look right. The interior assembles nicely. Just a lot of painting. The rear window and side windows are kinda tricky to get in. The side windows slide in over the outside of the openings. I opted not to go for the door windows as they didn't fit right and I also like to pick up my models that way. Final assembly sucked. The chassis is supposed to be taped down front and glued; then back and glued. Yeah, I glued the front and then found a 20lb rock to hold down the back. Not cool. The engine cover in the rear is also not a great fit. It's a clear piece with a decal over it. It just sits over the engine and not very well. I had to glue it in place. It also requires some painting around it to make it look right. Everything else fits pretty nice. The doors are a little tricky. I was also sad you either glue them open or shut. Would have been cool to have functioning scissor doors. Still, with all the trouble it looks great!
