Yea, but the child will learn once he spends more for the bling than the kit, does this a couple of times f/builds, you began to weed out all those little shinny thing-a-ma-bobs and look @ what will be seen and add that little attention getter that would other wise go un-noticed. Too much makes the subject too busy and you get swept away by it all..........have seen models @ contest that were just detailed down to the last nut and bolt get bested by a clean, just enough detail to hold one's attention, build of the same kit. But as you have pointed out, this is your party and as long as you are having fun, fun away friend. I have alot of room to talk about parts, have spent a bundle this week working on another one of my little projects.........but mine is not a kit, it is a 12 Ga. Tatical/Home Def.........Boys and their toys!
PS: still plucking away on the Fiat, got the stone sheild and hope to finish some of the details this Easter holiday, 3 days off of work, no Grands to pester me, and no honey to do list.............a good week-end to build and paint I hope.
As ole Franky said...........I did it my way! So ole pal, do it your way..........
Its easy to say do this or that, but its your wallet paying f/those over priced do dads..............I agree, the fenders are insane for a set of resin replacements.........
I believe it was once said, a fool and his money are soon parted!
Do not get me wrong, if you just gotta have it, and MMC's does have it, then if the hobby funds can take the hit, knock it out of the ball park........but after many, and I mean many orders off to MMC's, I have learned that every little detail item does not make that much of a deal compaired to a well built and painted OBB.
I paid for this ad and I'm sticking too it!
I have looked @ the frame w/the FIAT and also the ITALA, and guess what..........they are almost identical. So I see no reason that a FIAT frame could be used. I would love to see this done w/a Locomobile in 1/8th scale and Frank you tha man to do it. I have as I stated already, got put together the parts for the 1/16th scale build.
Destructive testing of your wallet and your head as you stand there pounding it against the wall because you just obliterated a $200.00 kit that is long OOP............does the mfg Protar ring a bell w/anyone!
Almost 19 inch's long, 4 1/2 inch's wide @ widest point of frame. anvil came that way, and if you build Pocher kits, is a good tool to have when working metal. I believe this to be the smallest/shortest of the Pocher kits and is the easiest to build. But remember, it is a Pocher, that means you will work the parts for assembly.
