    Could not pass up this opportunity to show this off:

    Robbe 1/24th scale German fireboat, Figures are Tamiya German soldiers and Revell fire figures. Boat is radio controlled by 16 channel radio, pumps water, launches boat at aft and more.

    First off It is not 1/32 scale, There are no dual wheels at the rear, This originally was a motorized kit.
    Here is a comparison of the AMT 1/25th, Aurora 1/32 and Lindberg bodies, As you can see the Lindberg (red body) is much smaller than the Aurora 1/32 kit from the 60's

    I would try to swap for someone near an Ollie's for the kit at 7.99 and go no higher for inaccurate kit

    Very nice model. I thought I was going to see the V8 modeled. Maybe some Corvette historian could fact or fiction this story. I have heard through the years that actual # 1 Corvette never made it out of the mold, They forgot to put the mold release and the body had to ground out of the mold. The first Corvette bodies were produced in Ashtabula, Ohio and this has been the story floating around Northeast Ohio since the 50's. Anyone care to add a few pennies to this.

    Thanks for the pics, That helps a lot. Hate to build another one with the bare frame, It was great when it was the 'visible' huey

    Hint on getting the roof and front windshield and side glass to fit together, Put them together and glue them before mounting the parts on the body. Nice job on this kit

    Nice job, Could you expand on some of the extras, ie winch, fliar, and did you detail the interior and how did you get rid of the ammo boxes.

    When looking at the Hagerty photos the front license plate is in place. That's where the two holes come from

    Also found out that 90% rubbing alcohol will remove the curtains from the glass and leave clear plastic. Windows must be removed to soak in alcohol

    They have interiors and to get to them you have to unscrew the bottoms, Certain Airstreams have window curtains on the windows that block the inside. Question: Didn't Airstream use jealousy windows or was that an option?
    I will post a interior shot next week, Holy Toledo this weekend!
