  1. I wonder if the 1/12 F1 Renault and the 1/24 300SL could be the Heller tooling..
  2. So how is it to own a car in your neck of the woods Gaute? Do they still tax displacement, and then tax horsepower as well? And then tax the gas so that it retails for about eight bucks a gallon?
  3. The Monogram Land Rover. That's right, I'm the kid who actually chose one of those at the store over the corvettes and rods surrounding it. Being eleven at the time I built it and it didn't really get to be old. Some fifteen years ago I came across an unbuilt kit, and it came home with me. It was a more than fair deal. Also; MPC Double Flip F-100 Nitto 1/12 Lancia Stratos Monogram '57 Vette
  4. Don't laugh, but I'll throw "Pinchcliffe Grand Prix" into the ring. It is a 1975 stop-motion animated full feature film revolving around building and racing this great racecar. YouTube only seem to have the first half of the short film version: However, the band Multicyde was permitted to use heavily from the race sequences for their "Not for the dough" music video. Enjoy! The full movie is highly recommended though.
  5. Woohoo! And it is molded in three colors, so there is no real need to paint it. Just like an old Matchbox kit ...and what about the tires?
  6. A good handful of those Tamiya DTM racecar kits... They were hyped up by the other guys in my modeling club, and I was young and impressionable.
  7. Always a treat Adam! Keep them coming.
  8. 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?
  9. I agree with you there. So the difference is about 5/32" then.
  10. Say, am I the only one who think it looks like an updated Lancia Stratos more than anything else? https://goo.gl/images/KqHPtZ
