  1. Cool project. I have the same kit sitting here, but will more than likely go with a vintage scheme, but Stooges graphics.
  2. Interesting to know. Thanks. Looks cool to me. Thanks. Don't look to see it in the near future though, as I'm working hot and heavy on a big 1:16 scale Jagdtiger right now.
  3. I've now (finally) got the bed soaking in some LA Fabulous. Any idea how long I'll have to let it stay immersed? I had painted it Tamiya dark green as I thought that would look really cool, but it actually looked just horrible.
  4. Yes, a great score on my part, and just a weird coincidence; a chance comment that I really wanted one eventually (in a thread on another forum that had absolutely nothing to do with cars), followed but a couple of PMs from a guy, and the deal was made. It appears to be 100% complete, just as he said it was too.
  5. Epilepsy aside, I just find them to be plain old annoying.
  6. I already snatched them from the site below, but thanks anyway, for sure. Yep, I googled the instructions and that site came up. Already downloaded all 28 pages, so I'm good to rock. Thanks a bunch.
  7. One of my grail kits arrived a few days back, the Monogram 1:8 "Big Deuce". The kit was a shelf queen that had fallen into disrepair, so the guy sent it to me for the cost of shipping. Now all I need are the instructions, and I'm good to go.
  8. Oh, yes, the Jagdtiger box is just ginormous. The Jack is one that I'd been seeking for a while, and I finally found one at a price that I thought reasonable, so I'm pretty happy.
  9. Still closed here, as far as I can determine.
  10. OK, thanks a bunch. I'll have nothing for those categories, but I still hope to enter a car or two, regardless.
  11. I appreciate that, but someone had already been good enough to enlighten me on that, as I had no idea. No brake cylinder though, not anywhere. In the grand scheme of things, it's probably not really that big of a deal, but by depicting the engine in a visible manner (there are no vertical hood segments), it seems it would have been wise to include those items that would be readily seen.
  12. Nice. I started the same truck a couple of years back, I intend to do 'er up as a Halloween truck (orange and black) and really need to get back to it.
  13. I shouldn't talk. I've been a member here for five years now (unbelievably), and have yet to finish even one car model. Pathetic.
  14. Just delivered today, and I'm really anxious to tear it open and eyeball it.
  15. This just arrived today, and I'm thrilled to now (finally) have it.
  16. One thing I'd really like to see, if doable, is more clarification of the specific forum groupings. While a title is given (Under Glass, for instance), having it in bold or larger letters or something, would certainly be nice.
  17. OK, thanks. It looks like you've certainly done good for yourself, so congrats on that.
  18. I'm curious as to what's up with the items that have 29 and 30 on them over and over again.
  19. I'd use whatever fits and looks best, regardless of scale. I have a couple of big rigs to get to one of these days, and that will be my approach.
