  1. PhotoBucket's Back?

    Good to know, hopefully they will be back aswell so I don't have to continue the moving of all my old pictures. But I have now paid for a Fotki account and will use that rather than the bucket for future photosharing.
  2. I think it depends on what the youth has been exposed to in their short lifes. If a kid grows up today and is exposed to the same things that I was exposed to in the 90s (I'm born in 84) then they will like that and a whole lot of other stuff that Round 2 has and is reissuing. What was I exposed to? I saw movies such as American Graffiti, Bullit, Smokey and the Bandit, Convoy, Cannonball Run and many others. I saw tons of older tvshows like A-team, TJ Hooker, Airwolf, Fall Guy, Knight Rider, BJ and the Bear and Lassie (and many more). And because of Lassie I did end dreaming of a mid 60s Dodge pickuptruck and finally bought one two years ago. A friend of mines father had a room in his house filled with old carmagazines (most of them from the 70s-trough the late 80s) and we used to sit for days on end in their drooling over hot rods and classic cars in every shape. So, would I buy the 29 Model A if it came back, yes I would. And my oldest son (wich is now 5 years old) call all old cars (1920-trough to 1940s) for hot rods because I have called some of them for that. And he thinks they are cool and he also likes to try and build my modelkits
  3. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    Ok, I don't speak german but google translate is very good at making abolute nonsense of meaningfull text. So after a few times trough the translater I got this answer: Make sure the cement does not bring the cement to the windshield with your finger by connecting the inlet pipes to the cement inlet
  4. That looks like the so-called "architect-drawn" housing that is built around here all of the time now. Each procjet usually has a goofy name that always ends with park. No park anywhere near them but they are supposed to be "green" (meaning that you spend less electricty by living there).
  5. Favorite police procedural/crime dramas

    I mostly only read crime in books and I recently read some of Michael Connoly's books about Harry Bosch. Cool books and I can understand how someone that lives in and around LA can "see" the places in the books. You can also do the same if you live in the Stockholm area and read the books on Martin Beck. They book are all staged in the 60s-70s when they where written. As for TV-crime, I don't follow the moderns streaming strend much and don't really care that much about watching newer series. I like Columbo, recently bought the first seven seasons (the good ones) on DVD. I also have the complete Poirot with David Suchet playing the part of Poirot on DVD. My wife was a great fan of CSI and I watched quite a lot of that with here but I still think Quincy was better (even if I have not seen that in a long time). Maybe not the same type of crimedrama but a "modernday" series I like is the Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes series. A total of five seasons stretching from the 70s and in to the 80s.
  6. What about this one? https://www.ebay.com/itm/DODGE-POWER-WAGON-SWB-SHORT-BED-4X4-ORIGINAL-PAINT/392033727710?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 Ok, it's not a long bed and it is not a W200 and it only has a 318 (that could easily be swapped) but I think this looks great.
  7. The first car I fell in love with is still number one on the list, the 57 Chevy Nomad. I prefer stock, like this: But there is also many nice customs of them and in my eyes the best one is the Sam Hollingsworth car. And I think Revell captured it at its best on their boxart: I know that the boxart car features the wrong wheels because Revell did not have matching wirewheels an therefore altered the picture with the chromereverese wheels but in my eyes that is the best way for it. I do like the wirewheels on it aswell, just prefer the chromereverse:
  8. Great wheatering job on this, great looking truck and your details make it stick out.
  9. So, Christmas and Easter have both passed with a good margin and it is springtime here in little Norway. I'm doing some work now and then to this dead horse or as it is from now on going to be called "Flogging a dead horse" It is far from done but I added details to the interior and glued the body on top of it. I have played around with various powders from the Doc O'Briens kit and some MIG washes here and there. I made a base from a leftover shelf from some IKEA shelf that collapsed on us a few years ago and some plaster on top of that. Painted it flatblack and have added several styles of Woodland Scenics grass and turf flocking and some sand. Will be adding more updates in the future
  10. Yeah, computers never do anything wrong, they always work perfectly I know that as a fact since I have worked in IT (back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and we used Windows XP)
  11. That looks very much the same as the ones we have here: This one is a 2017 Ranger Wildtrack with a 3,2 TDCi engine, for sale now at only 457 000 kroner (thats nearly 57 400$) registered as a van with only two seats: https://www.finn.no/car/used/ad.html?finnkode=115757250
  12. Nope, it was one of the biggest things in the election last year. Almost all political parties are have decided that the only way to reduce deaths related to caraccidents is to ban driving and from 2025 all new cars will have to be electric and by 2030 all cars that are controlled by a human driver will only be allowed on closed tracks organised events. One party was playing big on making it illegal to even own a car in the future as they read an american study that said that by 2030 80% of americans would not own their own car and since the USA is big-bad-daddy over here we will make it a full 100%. Luckily for the rest of us that actually have a life in a normal world, the political system is far to slow to be able to implement such rules in 12 years. Just like the future year 2000 was portraid in the 1950s it is a question of technology that needs to be developed (by scientists that are always lacking funding) and that the future never really becomes what one thinks it should be. 12 years is not a long time. Oh, BTW and more on-topic. Why you guys are not getting the Ford Ranger must be a mistake. They sell loads of them over here.
  13. Happy Hemi/Mopar Day!

    Hey, cool. I did not know that
  14. Problems at Heller

    Wow, only a couple of years since the last time. To bad too see them go. I guess we will be buying Chineese knock-offs of old Heller kits pretty soon.
  15. hasegawa vs tamiya

    Despite Hasegawas lack of interior details at times, all the kits I have and have built from them are good. Often curbsides models with no full engine and often a little lacking in interior detail. Tamiya is usully full detail (but they also have some curbsides) and they are mostly good aswell. Who have the best Mitsubushi Evo? I have no idea, as I have never had any or built any of them.
