    I had been looking at them but when I saw the price was only for a pair I moved on.

    I'd be proud of that

    I got one from Plastic Models a couple of weeks back and its fine. No flash or deformations any where.

    I've had mine here for awhile now. The only issue I can see is that while the tyres are perfectly moulded with excellent tread pattern they are very stiff.
    To get them on the rims I have had to soak them in hot water to make them pliable. 
    I have read on other forums where Belkits earlier releases are having issues with the tires eating the rims after a period of time.

    My Rodger Clark kit arrived last week. Its a very impressive kit and looks to me to be as good as anything I've seen from Tamiya who I always use as the benchmark.

    I use Tamiyas' Enamel Paint X-20 thinner,  not to be confused with Tamiyas' X-20A acrylic thinner

    I had a 1/12 Tamiya Porsche arrive here and the roof was a bit  pushed down due to poor packaging and the postal service putting too much weight on top of it
    I was gutted at the time but probably a year or so later I opened the box and the body shell looked perfect. I can only guess that the plastic had  a memory.

    I've  just recieved  a purchase notice from HLJ  where I had it preordered so this kit has now been released

    Being another NZer I can recommend Tower Hobbies  as well for being as good as it gets for reasonable shipping rates and regular offers of coupon discounts.

    Well done. Your chop has a really smooth flow to it.
  12. Roncla added a post in a topic Gravity Colors...anybody bought from them lately?   

    I've made several purchases off Gravity and they all went like clockwork. I tracked the order all the way from US to NZ with out an issue.
    On more than one occasion from several different companies I have been given tracking numbers that didn't add up.
    Everything to date has eventually arrived here so I've never worried about it too much.
  13. Roncla added a post in a topic Any better idea how to remove Tamiya TS-XX paints?   

    I've always used 99% Isopropyl Alcohol on Tamya TS. Just drop the body in a plastic container full of it and it lifts the paint off easy as.
  14. Roncla added a post in a topic Hi guys, looking for a source of these wheels in 1/25
