  1. A quicky build compared to what I usually build, kit arrived on saturday and is only needing me to make up the bed floor once i find some old looking wood or a method to age wood fast. I tried to give it the look of an on the road project with the underside all done up and the body left as it was. Apart from the firewall and chassis, all the paint is dry brushing with no primer, using humbrol enamels, and waxed with skotchbrite while still slightly tacky. I also used the same brush for all the painting without cleaning between colours.
  2. Wire Wheels

    I agree, the tamiya jag wires would be perfect for the aston, if i remember correctly they were both dunlop wires

  5. Scale Production in Europe

    the site has a button to put it into english, look at the top right of the page for it
  6. wood decals, from whom?

    you might find something in the dollshouse section of hobby shops. Or coffee stirrers sand down really easy, I used them to skin a hot rod hydro and they worked pretty well. I sanded them down so you can shine a light through them and still keep the grain
  7. Porsche 911

    If you dont mind ordering internationaly, scale production in germany have them in resin or I should have ones for the revell.de pictured below though they might be part of the body. its been a while since i looked in the box.
  8. One for the VW fans

    Recieved an email from hobby search this morning that put a smile on my face. The hasegawa pkw kubelwagen is getting rereleased in the egg girls series. I've built one and it was a good kit. Happy to see it back again so I wont have to pay ebay prices. The engine could also possibly be used to back date the gunze split beetle to 1948 spec with a couple of changes. http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10454768
  9. OMG!!! KFC ran out of chicken...and then GRAVY!!!

    Yeah, it happened over this side of the pond. The funniest thing about it for me was a group on twitter that tried to organise a boycot until they got more chicken!
  10. Why don't we have a nice Plastic Crosley kit ?

    I'd think the simple reason is this, I had to look up google to see what a crossley is, I'm only 41 and I hope this isn't taken the wrong way, but the folks that know or remember them are mostly 20-30 years older than me so a sadly shrinking market
  11. Help,Need Resin Service Station Accessories

    There's always dollhouse stuff too, some of it is really detailed (I've seen dressers that go for 1/1 money!)
  12. Enamel paint removal query

    Try fairy power spray, it seems to remove all paints and doesn't stink up the place like spray cans of oven cleaner. I spray it on the parts then put them in a sealable tub to catch the run off as it can be reused again and again. The downside is the bottles are only half a litre so i buy them 6 ata time from amazon to get them cheap

  14. Best pickup kits for crewcab

    meng do a ford f350 crewcab, not built mine yet but it looks like a good kit but a little pricey. the revell 65 chevy truck is not too bad to extend with the body lines helping a great deal. I did one with a revell front and amt 60 rear to the cab but in hindsight using 2 revell kits would have made extending the chassis go better.

  16. Italeri 2018

    I would expect italeri are releasing the old esci kits to capitalise on how much they have gone up in value in europe recently. The transit was selling for over £100 every time on ebay and even broken built ups were hitting £60. I cant remember the last time i saw the range rover or land rovers but the esci 70s rally cars they released are selling really well. I hope they are doing this to build funds for some new tooling. If I was in charge thats what I would do, but I'm not a business man
  17. Why no Corvette C7 Z06 or Grand Sport model kit?

    make them use abacus instead of calculators in school. makes them think instead of using google/siri etc and they might become more useful members of society. I have a theory on the decline of education and compassion among the young. I blame music videos and mtv for the i want it now mentality of kids. before mtv we got protest songs and after we got look what i have songs.

    I've seen your idea for clearing the primer done on a 1/1 vw. It looked pretty good and was reported as nardo grey in pvw mag
