  1. Another thing to check might be your printer settings. I've used the Expert's-Choice ink jet paper (made by BMF) and I seem to remember at one time they recommended that the printer to be set for photo paper (if your printer has such a setting), although I don't see anything about that on my current pack, hmm.
  2. I've got one of those you can have. PM me your address and I'll get it out to you in a few days.
  3. Looks like they're just white crosses? Shouldn't be too hard to just cut them out of white decal paper, or even mask and spray them. Either way, I've got some different ideas in mind for mine.
  4. Hey guys, in case you didn't see it, the Torque Trike is scheduled for this month!
  5. Nice - I see the "Torque Trike" (Black Max) is due already.
  6. Replicas & Miniatures has them (RM-152). Five wheels with separate lug nuts.
  7. I built the Italya version about25 years ago, which I believe is the same kit with different decals. Hasegawa did a bunch of versions of the F3000 Reynard, some have engine covers, some don't, but I think they're all pretty much the same kit otherwise. Scalemates listing here: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/hasegawa-23003-reynard-89d--320822 I don't have any pictures of my build handy at the moment, but from what I remember it's a very nice little kit. Goes together well, almost Tamiya quality. It has a good Mugen engine and ample potential for added detail if that's your thing. Let me know if you need any more info, maybe I should pull my build out and shoot a few photos.
  8. Perfect trades recently with Sam I Am and Modlbldr.
  9. Of course, the Beretta was raced in IMSA GTU and SCCA TransAm in the late 80s-early 90s and won championships in both: https://bringatrailer.com/2017/10/02/first-v6-trans-am-champ-canepa-restored-1990-chevy-beretta/
  10. Wow, thanks, Tim - your words mean a lot! I had your SA article near at hand while I built this; very helpful and inspiring. Agreed, it's a great little kit with all kinds of potential for added detail or customization, but goes together very well right out of the box and only has a few minor discrepancies - the often-mentioned lack of nerf bars on the rear radius rods being the only really obvious one. The only reason I can suspect for the lack of appreciation for this kit would be due to the subject matter - midget racers of this type had their heyday long before most of us were born, I guess, but that shouldn't stop some of us from digging them. BTW, the trailer is done - I'm just waiting for a set of tires from Reps & Mins to balance the thing out, then I'll post some photos of that.
  11. Any word on the Black Max "Torque Trike"?
  12. Absolutely no offense taken - I always welcome constructive criticism when it comes to getting it right. One of the great things about this forum is the ability to connect with folks that have knowledge. One small point though - I painted the radius rods mounting points steel-colored because that's how they look in the photo of the the car I have (see my "Under Glass" post).
  13. Richard, thanks for your input and for the history. Based on the research I did, I recognized that there were some inaccuracies with the kit, especially as you point out in the firewall area, but also decided that most of it wouldn't show too much when completed and I didn't want to get overly obsessive with this one.
  14. I've got one (or a pair for that matter) you can have. PM me.
