  1. Hello Everybody, For the Dutch IPMS, I am looking for 2 'Cuda's. The Dutch IPMS is celebrating it's 50th anniversary and they had the idea to make modelreviews between kits, issued 50 years ago and recent kits. I've been asked to do this for the cars section. So, I've been looking and I think the Jo-Han and Reveell Martin & Sox would be a very nice comparison. For the military and aviation subjects it is easier to find comparable models, but for cars it is more difficult. But, the issue is that both kits are hard to find in The Netherlands, and I have to use my network to find them (reasonably, as they are purchased by the IPMS). Who can help me out with them?
  2. Interesting to see that there is no Ford License, but they managed to get the F O R D decals as seperate letters and only mention the decalnumbers in the instructions, without showing the letters. I am wondering if there is still lettering on the tyres as well, in the 1999 picture it appears to be blank sidewalls, but it is hard to tell.
  3. It's the same with the hoodie girl, it appears.
  4. I saw it popping up online and loved it. When I was browsing through the pictures, I was really interested in getting one, but at 180 dollars, I find that too steep. I'd rather save that money for the Meng GT40 or new Italeri Delta.
  5. It is frome a Japanese guy who goes by Pocherman. I've been trying to figure out who he is, but I am affraid he either passed away or just stopped, since he didn't post anything since 20xx.
  6. Sorry, I misunderstood 🙂 I guess we end up on the same page .... hahaha. From what I notice, I see a lot more Aventadors popping up than those Huracan's. Which is also a bit logic, since the Aventador did sell better than the Huracan, I believe even by a great number. Never heard the 'cubic dollars' phrase yet, but I agree. A few years back, the F40 would do about 150-200 in a built form (I bought my K57 Dutch Prototype for 100, with only the interior minor built). But now, they don't get below 250 built anymore, usually between 300-400. But I assume it can also be some sort of wave, at some point it will lower again.
  7. Revell had a somewhat 'turbulent' 2019 behind them, maybe we should wait and see how the cards will unfold. Revell GmbH was a healthy organisation and seeing what they have done now'they definately deserve the benefit of the doubt.
  8. I am more interested in which coupe it will be, will it be the 2 seater or the 2+2? I hope for the first. I think the photo they supplied is from the 1/8th model, so I am not using this photo as reference for the upcoming kit.
  9. It is a bit confusing, since the Type 1 is the beetle, the Type 2 is the transporter, but the generations of the transporters is also called T1, T2, T3, T4, T5 and now the T6.
  10. I disagree, the lamborghini Aventador does pop up regurarly on the second hand marketplaces. Some build, some still in box (hoping/speculating on upgoing value, which it doesn't (yet)). even though the 911 does pop up a few times per year, it is by far not as much seen as the Lamborghini. The Aventador has been sold quite a lot actually, the Huracan would be more rare, but still was sold pretty good and recent. I would say that the Aventador, Testarossa, F40 and the Mercedes are the most common Pochers popping up.
  11. Reading this, I will not be pre-ordering one to be honest.
