    True chick cars are usually smallish 2 seater cars like Fiero, Miata and even lower level Porsche Boxsters and VW Cabriolets.

    Funny this topic comes up the day I received my HOLY GRAIL kit! A couple of weeks ago I was contacted out of the blue to see if I wanted this kit. I figured the fella wanted the usual 800.00 or more as when they occasionally show up on Ebay which I could not justify....even for a "grail" kit. I ended up paying $250.00 and it is complete and un-built....great find and great buy (thanks John)

    Anyone know if a RS/SS grill (hidden headlights) is available for the new Revell 67 Camaro?

    Hah! Yeah, I got a magnet and a vacuum cleaner with an old nylon parts catcher on the hose end just for those problems.

    It really wasn't too bad $$-wise. I spent a lot more the 1/12 Enzo and Porsche GT kits. What can I say, I love this big Tamiya stuff.

    Hey Tony....no, it actually fit pretty good (as seen in the second photo) once I made adjustments and screwed it down. I made that display so I could show the mechanicals without having to have the body completely removed and sitting off to the side. It also makes for a smaller footprint on/in a display or contest table. This was a pretty tough build ...made worse by neglect and broken parts but it all worked out in the end.

    Thanks to all for looking and the kind words

    Finally done! Tamiya 1/12 renault re20 turbo OBO....
    This is the culmination of 30 years of neglect. I started this long ago, stopped and started a couple of times. Along the way I had to fix broken parts and some that were even damaged by being stored next to vinyl parts. Finally started to organize, fix and paint it...




    And it's finally done ... all out of the box (except the display)...

    Sure looks like a T-Bird to me.......


  13. Ghostmech added a post in a topic $250,000 for a Mustang knockoff?   

    I think its a ridiculous concept imho...a weird looking, old school 'stang fastback with a ZR1 engine/ and suspension control system. Give me a real ZR1 and with the extra $125.000.00+ dollars, I would have a MUCH better car that that thing.

    At least they could've used Ford Parts....maybe some Supercharged EFI Boss 429 engine or something akin to that instead of that mish mash they are presenting. Sorry, It does nothing for me at all....but to each his own.


  14. Ghostmech added a post in a topic Tamiya's LaFerrari, new pics, OP   

    I with ya Chuck, I definitely want to, but I keep thinking I should wait until they get the accessory sets posted for both the Harley and LaFerrari too..... to save on shipping.

    According to the HLJ video, there will be a separate accessory set for the Harley but its not one the website yet.

    Along with the LaFerrari, is anyone else thinking about ordering one of those Harleys too?
