  1. That's actually not a terrible price, I expected it to be far higher! Hopefully by the time this whole COVID horror show's gone the friggin' mail systems will have recovered.
  2. Ohh heck you're right, I was thinking of the GTR. The LM is the road going version of course, derped a little. Can't help but wonder what the retail price will be down the line for these bad boys.
  3. McLarens, Porsches, an Audi and a BMW, all street legal(minus the P1 LM) too. Hello debt my old friend. We're critically underserved on McLarens so I'm excited, same for the Audi and BMW. Hell other than Hasegawa, its been years since we had a street stock BMW luxury car.
  4. I do, infact! And I believe the paint was some BMW color, cant remember the name for the life of me but I remember buying it specifically for a '05 X5 >.<
  5. There's something about Hasegawa's Historic Cars series that really tickles my fancy, even a well-thread subject like the R32 Skyline is appreciated, especially since they always do four or so 'editions' before going to the next subject. Hell, given the sheer quality of the what, five different R31 kits, this one's on my to buy list for sure.
  6. It's going pretty alright, as far as it's possible between Brexit about to kneecap my access to the printing company and COVID, hah. This announcement of Revell doing the '71 Mustang's inspired me to finally re-do all the '71-'73 Mustang sets and get to the ones I have had planned for so long, like a handful of Shelby de Mexico models(GT500 with the strobe stripes and '73 GT-350). Shipping wise, man I am getting destroyed by how expensive intercontinental postage is nowadays, in the Netherlands they straight up added 13$ on top of the previous price to 'compensate' for it, so for a brief moment I had this idea to just have a buddy in Calgary, Canada ship 'em locally but that quickly dissolved cause of the how many unique sets(pushing the 300) I have and it requiring a momentous amount of dosh upfront to invest. It's a hell of a thing, hah.
  7. Its actually quite interesting to see how perfectly polarized the excitement here is. One half, me included, over the moon. The other disappointed that it's yet another Mustang or from the wrong generation. Nothing wrong with it of course, interests don't have to line up, just noticing the exact split.
  8. Holy mother of God this is genuinely the most excited I've been about Revell since the 1983 Olds Cutlass.
  9. Hah, what a coincidence! I just purchased the Datsun Sunny kit along with the Isuzu Gemini by Lotus. Also, thanks y'all!
  10. Bet this is the first one on this forum, reckon it'll be a weird sight to spot a Stanza between all the muscle. I've been on a Hasegawa kick lately with their Historic Cars series, they're just utterly amazingly well put together and honestly, I'd argue they're surpassing Tamiya in sheer quality. Not to mention, they're pumping out half a dozen new tools a year now. This is the SSS-R version, albeit engineless, which held the weird claim to fame that it was the single best equipped factory rally car from the eighties. It was entirely road legal, but came equipped with a fat, thick skid plate, offroad tires, a roll-bar and this outrageous yet utterly fitting of the era paint scheme that proudly displayed the specs of the ATTESA 4WD system and the turbocharger. Also, incase you're wondering why there's '87 Idaho plates on a car that never left Japan? Happened to have a spare set that was meant to go on a '87 Buick GNX, same scale and all.
  11. To be fair, Hobby Search usually charges atleast 10$ more than US stores as they're located in Asuka, JP so they have to actually import 'em. Reckon it'll be a 20$ kit.
  12. Isn't this the kit that is like a third of the way reasonable but totally made obsolete by the Revell kit? Hell of a choice for them to uh, well, y'know, even spend a dime on. With all the investment for tool X and mold Y talk here, I can't even comprehend the choice on this one... Saturation cause Revell's Eclipse's been OOP since '15?
  13. Actually I'm all the way over in the Netherlands! I just have a fascination for the US license plates and trying to make 'em at least accurate and make decal sets as a little side operation. Though the Nebraska pick was kind of only 'cuz the '87-'90 sunset plate having a neat combo of colors with the car itself, the Lancaster county tag was purely coincidental. Though I do have distant family just outside of Lincoln in Waverly, maybe it was subconscious haha
  14. Really wanted to do this kit proper once, having built it as bare box stock as I could've three years ago. The engine bay's still quite a mess and unfinished, ran out of wiring materials and whatnot midway through making the A/C unit and the supplies aren't slated to be here for another 8 weeks so... Thought it would be nice to have on the shelf in the meantime. Still gotta patch up the engine bay's paint issues, glue stains and all that in the future with the A/C system. Love, love these Revell kits from way back then, got a Thunderbird SC lined up to join it. Kit had some really, really bad warp though, the roof was crushed and the chassis and fenders were bent pretty badly, though the plastic quality has gone rock solid so any bending or even heating up seems to make it brittle and causes it to snap off straight away, so I left it as it was.
  15. Built this one in January but didn't really get around to doing the finishing touches until a week ago. Did still miss a few things, like the center cap decals but since I had to buy a whole second kit for this(didn't have the engine or glass trees with the kit, and couldn't find 'em on the cheap so I bought the RoG one with the muuuuch bigger decal sheet) and spent far too much time on the engine bay. The COVID-19 situation's gotten my life all thrown upside down these days, mentally and physically so these distractions are hugely good to have. Go hobby time! Paint's Tamiya TS54, the rest other than the engine wiring and license plates is just box-stock, nothing too complex. Kinda bummed out I couldn't get the stance right, the body just refused to meet with the chassis. And that the hood doesn't shut, but all in all I'd say it ended up looking quite alright.
