    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

    The shortened front end brings the length down to a more "standard" size but I kinda like the twin-mill idea.
    Two suggestions if you're interested.  Use a cover on the side pipes like the Vipers used with the outlet still ahead of the rear wheels. It could add a little to the sill area and enhance the wedge profile.  The other is the about the rear tire - bubble top. They seem to be out of scale compared to each other.  I am guessing its probably easier to change the tire size then the bubble top.  Just my 2 cents.
    Definitely looking forward to see where this goes.

    Thanks for the info on yours. Mine are tight to each other and it doesnt seem possible to mis-mount the the engine. so I'll have a look at the fitment of how I attached the pulley and belts to the block.

    Watching this one with interest for sure.  Have you mocked up the driveline yet?  It seems the rad sits awfully close to the pulleys on the engine.

    From what I understand the Twin Mini would qualify. Two transverse inline 4's not connected in any way - so have at it with that one.

    Interesting kit of this era MB - possibly the only time that driveline was ever done.  Does anyone know if the Otaki and/or Arii kits are related to it in any way?

    Wild ride and excellent cutting and fabrication work for sure!  I was thinking more like the Silhouette but I like where this is going.
    One idea I had, instead of two complete engines, how about mating them up into a V16??

    For those of you that ARE interested in the Chevy II (new issues and old) you might want to have a look at the Cannonball 2018 community build. The selected theme is "inlines" - 4's, 6's, 8's, et al.  As long as the pistons are all in a row then its included.  Check the Community section in the next month or so for the guidelines.

    Would this qualify as an all-new tool???  Cuz I'll take one regardless.

    What is your seller name on the 'bay?

    Looks like a trip to the HL for the re-issue is in order.
    I really like those wheels - but would someone please make a kit of the entire car - please......

    I would have to go for the inlines - lots of possibilities whether oob or a transplant.
  12. djflyer added a post in a topic What's your holy grail kit?   

    The Mangusta in 1/24?  Would certainly like to have one also, who's release is it?
    For my own holy grail I seem to find new ones, but now that the JoHan Follmer Javelin is off the list its now down these:
    Revell Premium BMW 850i
    Revell VW Corrado
  13. djflyer added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Scaleauto does some great work - fantastic quality and detail.  They could give Tamiya a run for their money if they decide to do complete kits.  (They're already not too far from the curbside kits being issued these days)
    What kit number is that one? I'll definitely have to get one.

    That Cuda concept could/should be built by Chrysler. Fantastic lines with sweep and balance.

    You would think pick-up trucks would have a big enough market to support new kits. The die-cast market certainly thinks so and everything I have found to date says the tooling costs are nearly the same (maybe someone with more inside knowledge can verify this). JADA has even been releasing some of their subjects as plastic kits. I found these all with a quick search on eBay for trucks from 2014 to present:
