  1. I’ve always liked the design of jet skis. And yours look fantastic. Been thinking about buying a 3D-printer for years maybe it’s finally going to happen after seeing these kind of results.
  2. It’s because your visiting the page from Europe and they haven’t made the necessary changes for complying with the European data laws (GDPR). Witch basically means that they must inform you of witch kind of Personal data they are collecting from you and for what purpose. And that they must erase all data they have been collecting about you if you ask them to. You will probably be able be able to solve this by getting an VPN-service that’s makes it look like you’re located in the states. There are a lot of different VPN-services to choose from.
  3. There’s a tv-series called “Into the night” that I liked. Its great if your a fan of science fiction and commercial airplanes.
  4. Have you seen the GT 40 from Exoto? https://www.exoto.com/s/1/ProductList.aspx?Language=&AttributeType=Category&AttributeId=490 The prices are beyond my budget but the details look very nice. I managed to buy a Shelby Cobra 289 from Exoto from a German dealer for a good price (not even close to Solidos price range though).
  5. Brookfield have made some four door promos from the 90s. Chrysler Cirrus Dodge Stratus Plymouth Neon Dodge Neon Oldsmobile Aurora They also made some fully opening diecasts in 1/24 like the Dodge Intrepid, Chrysler New Yorker, Chrysler LHS and Chrysler Concorde.
  6. 747 I like big planes and the 747 is beuty unlike any other passenger plane in its shape, sadly they are getting rare.
  7. That car belonged to the Swedish police and was used by a SWAT team. It had the nickname “Svarta Maja”, Svart is black and Maja is a common female name in Sweden. Could be translated to Black Maya. If you search for “1939 svarta maja” on google you will find more photos.

  9. Don’t Know if this is the right topic for this but I’m suffering from pollen allergy which have irked me for several days now in a number of ways, hopefully it will get better in the end of May for me.
  10. Thanks for your advice, I have contacted uscp and they can make these wheels.
  11. I have also searched but haven’t found them. The closest I have found so far is these two. https://www.spotmodel.com/product_info.php?products_id=51602 https://www.spotmodel.com/product_info.php?products_id=49194&language=en It would be great if you had a 3D-scanner, then we could make our own model.
  12. Looking for these wheels in 1:24 / 1:25.
  13. A video from Scania:s assembly plant and test track in Södertälje in the 1980s (hope you don’t mind that it’s in Swedish)
  14. Volvo C202 from 1979 in nice condition, by the red color and the black and white rims it used to belong to the fire department.
  15. Yes, its a nice car. I also like how they put it next to the Volkswagen, same but different Porches were used by the Swedish police from 1965 until 1973. In 1965 the police decided that they needed some faster cars and were looking at two alternatives, Volvo P1800 and Porsche 912. They decided to go with 912. In 1970 they decided to replace some of the 912:s with 911T because they thought that the 912:s engine wasn’t reliable enough for police use.
  16. Visited the Police Museum in Sweden a couple of days ago and thought I would share some pictures of the cars and motorcycles. Saab 95, Volkswagen and Porsche 911T Plymouth Valiant (with Saab seats) and a Dodge Volvo 940 (Opel Kapitän, Saab 9-5, Chevrolet, Volkswagen T3 and Volvo 240 in the background) Volkswagen t3, two Volvo 240, Saab 900 and a Ford Tri-Star TSE 350 Saab 900 Turbo (unmarked traffic police unit) Saab 900 Motorcycles
  17. Built this a couple of years ago, didn’t turn out perfect but good enough for me.
  18. Yes, I had some trouble getting it to seal shut. Don’t know why though, the hood isn’t to wide or to long. Maybe it’s something with the hinges. Should have test fitted before I started to build. I’ve bought one more which hopefully will turn out better thanks to everything I learnt from building this one.
  19. There’s some discussions about Lindberg 1:20 kits on this site lately so I thought it was a good time to show my completed Ford Explorer Sport from Lindberg. I built this kit five years ago and it went fine to built, lots of details. There were three issues I remember, the taillights were tricky to get in place. The backside of the frontseat didn’t match completely so I had to use a sandpaper to remove the excessive material (so you don’t se the line between the front- and backseat). I also hade to drill out the holes in the roof for the roof rack (there were holes on the inside of the roof but they didn’t went all the way through), this can also be a good thing if you don’t want a roof rack. Overall, this was a joy to build as I like the subject. The glue on the taillights is a result of my struggle to get them to fit, they do fit but it was tight.
  20. I bought it on eBay, there made in China. This is the ”cheaper” version, there’s an fancier edition with chrome grille and a bunch of other nice details but it costs a lot more. There’s an European manufacturer called Otto that also offers a version (“Limited” version) but its curbside without opening doors and engine. They aren’t that rare so u should be able to get one for a good price.
  21. Even though this one I have is a diecast and not a kit I thought I might mention it. its in 1:18 and have opening doors and trunk.
  22. I’ve been following the work with this car at this forum for along time and been planning to add a comment for a long time but I don’t know how to describe how amazed I am about this product. Thank you so much for all work that all of you are putting into this!
