      We're in for some more maintenance tonight. I'll probably take the board offline for about 20 minutes or so after 9 PM PST.

  1. A Thought about the Magazine, etc.

    What I miss most from the Mag are Larry Greenberg's Kit reviews. He is one of the most knowledgeable reviewers out there IMHO, and a great historian of the hobby. I wish Gregg could get those reviews online. I'd gladly pay for those. I know that Larry used to have a website with some reviews, but it is long gone.
  2. Maybe getting back into models-recommendations?

    Welcome back. I'd choose a kit, but before buying it, ask the helpful members here for any opinions on how easy it will be to build. We can give you feedback and tips on any kit you chose. Remember that many of the AMT or MPC kits you grew up with are out there in fresh Round2 boxes at HobbyLobby or the LHS. They have nifty pad-printed white walls & great new decals, but it is the same well loved plastic in the box. And Round2 kits now feature a parts layout drawing on the bottom of the box, showing everything you get in the kit. Good Luck! and Happy Modeling! Alan
  3. A Thought about the Magazine, etc.

    Amen, Bill! A "Big Thank You" to Gregg is well deserved. This is indeed a great website.
  4. This magazine also had a build of one many years ago. The Awesome Bill Borgen built it, and it had the usual superb story to back up the build.
  5. BAD or GOOD "BADMAN"?

    So who's gonna put those "Mr. Tuff" decals on a sheet? Maybe Slixx will put them on one of their Mini Sheets.
  6. 1/25 AMT NYPD Chevy Police Van

    Thanks, Joe! This helps those of us who do not live in New York.
  7. 1/25 AMT NYPD Chevy Police Van

    I cannot wait to see what is inside this kit. The decals alone will be worth the price.
  8. Toyota FJ Crusier, What's In The Box

    I do not see the Snorkle Air Intake Tube that seems to be on a bout half the FJs I see here in California. I wonder if they'll do a later Off Road version with more aggressive tires, and the optional parts?
  9. He's back. 8 Car kits introduced.
  10. I love these old Arii/Otaki kits, and pick them up when I can. The Japanese Planes are really good, the others are a mixed bag. AMT even boxed some of these years ago. I have the Spitfire and Zero in AMT boxes.
  11. 1926 Mack AC Dump Truck

    Man, I need a set of those wheels!
  12. Dyno Don 1965 Comet

    I too, am waiting for one of these kits. I don't care who's decals are in the box, as I am building a privateer car. I've got a Slixx Mini Gasser sheet with "Famoso Mob" markings just waiting for the kit.
  13. 2019 CBR - the Vannonball Run!

    The Tamiya kit has a molded on emblem. The Revell boxing shares the Tamiya body, so it is molded the same way. I think, maybe, that the "New" Revell VW Van has a separate emblem, but don't quote me on that.
  14. 2019 Revell (Germany)

    Any Idea what the '66 Chevy Custom will be? Could it be the long out-of-production, Flip Front Malibu?
  15. I wonder how long before somebody offers a resin conversion to have an 'open door' on the service bed? This kit will be a "Must Have" for me.
