Yes. I think that judging by the age set of modelers on this web site, there are a lot of people who will remember that show. I think, based by the average age set of attendants at any model show, contest, or club meeting, there are a lot of people who will remember that show. Marketing matters.
Yeah, hearing defensive talk right out of the gate will send up red flags in a hobby that is already weighed down with trust issues (thus the "good trader/bad trader" stuff that regularly appears in hobby social media). Think more like a salesman. You need to sell yourself, your skills, and your integrity. You can make, or break it with every word you post.
Good luck to you.
If the local hobby shop has it, I plan on buying this kit tomorrow.
Not going to build it, just going to carve some rear bumper guards.
Laminate some scrap plastic. Cut to shape. Sand smooth and round edges.
Alclad. Then attach to rear bumper.
Then put it back in the box for another day.
...the new "engine block halves" of model car building.
