  1. Here’s the photo reminder... also if you have the eBay sellers name that would be great. I did a few passes through eBay but didn’t have any luck finding them. Thanks again
  2. I think there was lighting in one of the original sets with walls, that would explain the battery box.
  3. Always looking for a good Baja bug (and wheels) where did you find yours?
  4. Just scored two kits on my bucket list in one lot, a Monogram SWB Land Rover and a Cheetah. Price for the lot was probably about what I would have paid for the two individually, and I’ll load the Panteras and a couple others back up on eBay, so I think I got a good deal. The LWB Land Rovers look decent so I might clean them up for display and unload the unbuilt ones in my stash as well.
  5. Need to find some scale eagle beaks.
  6. Cloth might be a good start, like a fine weave burlap, or something similar. Maybe cheese cloth?
  7. I’ve always had good luck with USCP, Scale Production, Spot Model, Czech Truck and a couple other European suppliers. Usually 3-4 week delivery. Just got tires from SP and USCP today.
  8. I’d like someone to correct me if I’m wrong, but that looks more show than go. I imagine the lag having such a large turbo on a what’s maybe a 3 liter at most, probably less, would be huge. You’d be half way down the track before it kicked in. Same with the jumbo carb, wouldn’t you need to jet it down to nothing to keep it from flooding? Most setups I’ve been around have two small turbos and Weber’s or something designed for smaller engines.
  9. Thanks guys. The New Ray Peterbilt was a good lead but they are pretty clunky. I ordered some 1/10 rc Range Rover mirrors that look like they might work if I flip them 90* and swap sides. I’ll post if it works, of course all the time I’ve spent looking I could have scratch built some by now.
  10. I’m looking for modern aerodynamic big rig mirrors, sometimes I’ve seen them called bus mirrors. Haven’t had any luck searching the usual places, does anyone know of any aftermarket ones?
  11. Have you thought about narrowing the bumpers a bit to bring the ends in tight to the body or do they fit well as is?
  12. Watch the hpiguy on YouTube, you’ll get plenty of god tips on building a nice looking model using spray paints.
  13. Thanks Peter. Just grabbed some of the 4oz ball jars from wmart, also going to try these bottles. The nozzle seems ideal for airbrush filling, but I’m not sure if they will seal well for long term storage.
