    Follow him on Facebook, he's clearly a hardcore enthusiast.

    Hope they will repop them.

    Wanna build this :

    I'll get a couple just because of these decals !

    Sure they can dramatically enhance that average kit.

    Now the real question is : do someone knows a way to make 1:8 decals from these ? Monogram 1:8 T/As are waiting for rebuilds

    Yet, with their name, catalog and developpement-possibilities (new masters from others), this remains good business...

    Do you know that Tumblr ?

    I own both the 1971 T/A and 1971 Mustang. Body proportions are odd, mostly because of their roof. Too low.

    But overally they look great. Imagine how impressive is a 1/12 71 Stang !!!

    They're definitely 1970's japanese kits : details are rough, engine shapes are wrong, seats are squary, and Dunlop tires rules. But with passion and a few kitbashing you can build great models.

    For instance, I'll build the Mustang as the Diamonds are Forever Mach 1.

    Now, the question is : will they ever reissue all of them ? I want these Mercedes sooooo badly !

    I sthere a way (resin kit ? ) to build these Stock ?

    If so I'd buy a couple...

    Ditto !

    Very nice build of a rare kit !
  12. Young iron added a post in a topic 1/25 Revell Starsky & Hutch Ford Torino   

    Andy's definitely right. And it's not too much to tell the defaults. Kit makers really can fix these up, if we help them. Because once the tooling is validated it will hardly change. Or we can choose to accept every new kit to be Revell's AAR Cuda...

    I 'd add the wheels, which are all identical. And no, I can't wait to buy this kit.

    DITTO !!!

    Actually my second after a 280ZX. Both were bought at a sales shop. Datsun in 1984 and VW in 1985. In France, very little people were building them and you found them for cheap.

    Man, thanks a lot : you make me fell 6 year-old again ! I'm 37 and can't accept I'm aging !
  14. Young iron added a post in a topic 1970 Dodge Charger R/T?   

    This is my favorite Charger, I 'd be happy to build a few !

    That Trail 70 was named Dax 70 on french market. They're really sought after, these days.
