The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
Nismo TV is streaming down here perfectly despite the International feed to New Zealand being blocked off at the official website. The race is now been running for 5 hours and packed full of action and drama.
There is a International live stream here too but they are now blocking it to us in New Zealand as pay to view SKY TV has bought the rights to it http://www.bathurst12hour.com.au/streams-tv/international-streaming/ I've got my fingers crossed that Nismo TV will not be blocked as well.
I've got both of those trans kits here but have only built one C1 models version to date. The Hobby Design trans kit is all separate body pieces that are attached to the Tamiya donor kit after the body has been cut out so is far more work than the C1 version which is supplied as a completed shell. Both are now decent quality and it really comes back to how much work you wanted to put in. Cutting the Tamiya shell up and lining up all the pieces of the Hobby Design body kit is not going to be for the inexperienced.This is my C1 Models 993 which was one of their early castings and took quite a bit of work before I was happy with it. I recently got their 964 and the quality of their casting has improved noticeably and looks like it will go together without issue.
Postage costs out of America to New Zealand seem to have really taken a jump in recent years. Many retailers and Ebay sellers appear to use an automatic shipping calculator which gives preposterous costs. I've found Tower Hobbies to be the most reliable these days. They send out regular discount coupons and their shipping costs are not unreasonable.
The Studio 27 BAR 007 I scored off HLJ during their current sale arrived this morning complete with questionable spelling on the decal sheet. ' LOOK LFET ' ??? A quick clip with the scissors will sort it. Funny thing is it is spelled correctly on the white decals on the same sheet.
Maybe there are some local laws causing an issue for them or there are other hassles making it not worth it. I can import Zero paints in from Spain without any issues but the manufacturer in England wont ship down here.
They are no longer in the RMCoM catalogue. Machined Aluminium Specialties made a particularly nice set but I believe they are out of production too. There appears to be a void here in the aftermarket for these wire wheels.
