  1. Sunset - the night is coming!

    Always a treat Adam! Keep them coming.
  2. Revell is back in Northlake IL

    Don't worry too much. If an US R&D unit doesn't materialize, one can hope the German one will produce kits of subjects relevant to the american market. They did the VW bug, the Rabbit and various Ferraris. If you hold your breath for long enough you might even get a Buick Opel. Remember those?
  3. Revell '76 Ford Torino

    I agree with you there. So the difference is about 5/32" then.
  4. Have a palatte cleanser.

    Say, am I the only one who think it looks like an updated Lancia Stratos more than anything else? https://goo.gl/images/KqHPtZ
  5. Welcome New Mods!

    Respect guys! It is a much needed and often unpleasant job, but somebody has got to do it. Thank you.
  6. Positives to come from the Revell Deal?

    Positives to come from all of this? Good predictions are hard to make, and especially about the future - I'll stay out of that for now. If it were to happen that the new Revell (GmbH) does not serve the American marketplace well, and there are glaring fields of high demand left untended. Then that may give Moebius, Galaxie, Pegasus and whomever space to grow and prosper. Just a thought..
  7. Serious poll ,Model A or Deuce Coupe ?

  8. Tamiya Mini Cooper 1275S Rally

    Lots of good work there. Now a heads up about this kit; Make sure to test fit the front suspension before you glue it in place. It has a tendency to end up sitting low.
  9. Why don't we have a nice Plastic Crosley kit ?

    I'd buy one (only).
  10. How many builds?

    I only done at a time. At one time I tried the assembly line approach to get more models finished for a local contest. The idea was to consolidate various steps like painting all of the chassis parts in one go and so on in order to save time. I did get more models done in less time that way, but the lesson learnt was that the quality suffered badly. It didn't allow for the creative juices to flow like they do when focusing all my attention on one build.
  11. Galaxie trailer. Has anyone biult one?

    The advice given me from a well-meaning club mate upon my buying one, was to pay attention to the vertical sides of the floor/chassis part. Apparently they are angled a little bit for mold release purposes. And if you just glue the sides onto there like the instructions say, and let it set - the it can get hard to get the roof to fit right. I never got to it myself, but that's what he told me. For what it is worth..
