    I've been watching  the Nurburgring stream live on motorsport 2017. Excellent coverage and the stream has been flawless.

    Such a shop is something I've been looking for without success. A one stop shop would sure cut back on the exorbitant costs of shipping these days

    Revell Foose F100
    Revell have put up the instructions for their new Foose pickup. Of interest I've noticed it has a metal axle at the front which is unusual for a modern kit plus the roof is a separate part

    Thats creative and its turned out a treat. Well done.
  5. Roncla added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    My courier dropped off package from Tower Hobbies containing a Moebius  Plymouth Belvedere. While the Moebius box is in perfect condition the body shell of this kit has a warped roof from what looks to be too much being stuffed in to a box thats too small.
    I had already read a lot about others having a similar  issue so it was a roll of the dice to buy this kit. All I can do now is run the hot water and try to get it back in to shape.

    Steve has always provided me with a first class service  out here in the colonies.

    I'll join the chorus for fenderless

    Thanks for the bump Ace. Its an a easy to understand tutorial and it simplifies the process for a future project i've got planned
  9. Roncla added a post in a topic Is this typical ?   

    The example I have here looks the same as Jons'  Its definitely a bit scruffy round the edges compared to some other casters but the outside of my casting is nice and smooth and dead square with no flaws anywhere.
    I think the picture of the front makes it look worse than it really is. All that flash on mine is paper thin and will clean off with little effort.
    I have a number of Jimmys' bodies here and provided you aren't averse to some clean up I see them as decent  value and perfectly useable.

    That Larsen Vega release date has been bounced back a number of times so far and its now a year way. Makes you wonder what the issue is.

    I just placed another order last night and its already been shipped with a tracking number. I've waited months for other vendors to get around to shipping inferior product.

    I'm old school and would go for No1. Street rods need big rubber to my eye.
  13. Roncla added a post in a topic Stripping Paint From Resin Items...... What's Best and Safest To Use..???   

    I've just used lacquer thinners on a rag and wiped the paint off resin in the past without issue.
    I'd avoid Isopropyl alcohol though which is my usual go to paint remover for plastic. I had a resin part from Norm at  RM turn to rubber when I soaked a part in it.

    I've purchased off them several times too and the quality  is always top notch.

    Tower Hobbies is listing both in stock as well, in limited quantities.
