    Now that's what I call a solid effort. I've only just cracked 700.
  2. Warning, a new concern replacing "Tire Burn"

    Thats opening a can of worms and something else to worry about when storing our stash. I wouldn't be surprised if the plastic bags varied in composition as much as the kits do.
  3. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    A Fremont Racing Specialties 37 Fiat rolled in.
  4. Freemont Racing Specialities

    I've jumped in and scored one of his Fiats. There was excellent communication and it was shipped out immediately. Looking forward to receiving it now.

    Unfortunately they were dropped some time back.
  7. I've got a couple that look like that too. Well done.
  8. Tamiya Mazda 787B

    The rotary has got a following down under for sure. You've done that kit justice and it looks a treat. Its long overdue for Tamiya to re release that kit too.
  9. MCM Problems?

    That message sprung up all the way down here yesterday too. Gave me the cold sweats when I realized i was locked out. But as they say..... tomorrow will be a better day and today things are back to normal.
  10. The most dangerous race

    Definitely smarter. it makes me cringe when i see young girls whizzing around the town on motor scooters wearing just shorts and singlet.
  11. Engine turning

    Vintage Racing Miniatures announced some ages back but they don't seem too active these days. http://www.v-r-m.com/coming-soon.html
  12. Caterham Super Seven JPE (Tamiya 1/12)

    I'll be following your build closely. I've just scored the re-released Caterham BDR. These really are outstanding kits with their stamped metal body panels.

    I've dealt with them numerous times purchasing body kits and never had any kind of issue. Everything has arrived down here well packed and within a couple of weeks and quality has been top notch. I used to purchase their wheels too but they discontinued production of them awhile back and show no signs to date of bringing them back.
  14. Is a woody a car?

    I was just at Wingnuts web site yesterday and they have a page in their Hints and Tips on woodgrain. Its the same process as Robert describes but they use a sponge. http://www.wingnutwings.com/ww/hintsandtips
