  1. Revell 69'vette smallblock

    really nice work!
  2. BRAT comes out ahead - so in we go!

    that go-kart brings back memories. My grandfather won a brat go-kart (in brown, no less) when I was a kid. I remember riding on the decklid while my mom drove it down the sidewalk.
  3. eCOPO Camaro Concept

    El oh el. A stock Tesla X roasts a Hellcat.
  4. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    didn't need them, but found a deal I couldn't pass up on the ebay. $15 plus shipping for the Fujimi mechanics figures AND the garage tools kit. eventually I'll build that garage diorama that's floating around in my head
  5. Monster trucks...

    would love to get ahold of an original Bigfoot kit.
  6. just did a quick image search of the inventory at Pro-Team Corvettes. several L88s restored by Nabors Bros. and others have unpainted heads. These guys don't get much wrong in a restoration, and I'd be really surprised if they missed on something that visible.
  7. Sunbeam Tiger MkII 1967 Race Car

    Well sure. The Alpine hood fits better since it doesn't have to clear that V8. 😉
  8. Sunbeam Tiger MkII 1967 Race Car

    I have the same issue with the hood on my WIP. I took a bit of material from under the leading edge and it helped a little but not much. I think you're correct that the curvature isn't correct

    I bought that same kit in the late '80s, mostly for the Cammer. I built it curbside. Wish I'd held onto it.
  10. Childhood models that you replaced in adulthood.

    Great topic! I'm currently working on a kit that reminds me of the first model I remember my dad building, a '71 Roadrunner. Trying to find a reasonably priced Sneaky Pete pickup. That's the first kit I remember building, with Dad's help.
  11. MPC '71 Roadrunner

    Thanks. It was hard to find one at a price that I felt was reasonable for a builder. It was missing a few parts but nothing critical or unobtainable.
  12. MPC '71 Roadrunner

    Just getting settled after moving last year. I picked up this kit I started a while back to knock the rust off and get something finished. It's the 1987 reissue of the Roadrunner kit. I picked this kit because it's the first model I remember my dad building when I was a kid, 40+ years ago I was disappointed then that he didn't use the Superbird parts 😂. Dad's kit is long gone , but I'm building this one as an homage to that model that got me interested in this hobby. Dad usually just painted the body of a kit and then left everything else in bare plastic. The Roadrunner was metallic blue and he put this Roadrunner decal on the doors. Fortunately I found a set of original decals recently. I couldn't bear to leave anything in that nasty yellow plastic so I tried to keep it simple with a black interior and flat black chassis. It needs another coat of Tamiya blue, and I need to finish the engine, and pick out some details, but it's far enough along that I should be able to finish it up soon.
  13. A Thought about the Magazine, etc.

    I sold several years worth of SA and several copies of MCM, as well as several modeling books, a few years ago for this very reason. I do wish I'd held onto Ken Hamilton's diorama book, though.
  14. kinda interested in that Edmund Fitzgerald kit, but I looked it up on their site and it's like an elementary school project.
