  1. You might want to take a look at the tires in the Revell Lowrider kits. As I remember it, they were about the outside diameter of the Corvair kit tires, but much wider.
  2. Yep. It was posted on nextdoor. The responses made it obvious this is normal fine!
  3. Consider yourself fortunate, it's much more expensive in California. A neighbor paid $545 a few weeks ago.
  4. I love Archy Jay "The Snake Charmer". I'm also a huge fan of J-Pop and J-Metal.
  5. I did a little googling and it seems that lift kits for the Geo are a lot more common than we'd expect. I don't know about drive train swaps, I was not that interested lol 🤪
  6. I did too, when I was about 14. I was definitely not as gentle or patient as that guy. It did get the job done, but tube glue and bondo seemed a whole lot easier.
  7. And much thanks goes to John for selling me this at a very reasonable price! It's the centerpiece of my collection. I take it out every so often to marvel at the ingenuity and quality of this build. Believe me, it looks even better in person! 😁
  8. Really looking forward to this. Just not entirely happy with the windshield. To me it looks like the top edges sweep up too much. Yeah, I know, someone will probably tell me that my example is not an original Duvall 🤪
  9. Might be the prototype for decals on another F&F Mitsubishi Eclipse re-release. 🤪😵🤬
  10. Plastruct sells bends in various sizes and degrees that are pinned at both ends which would be perfect. Their website is not the easiest to navigate, but this link might get you started. I've long wondered why folks don't use these to build headers, since you could assemble them just like they do in 1:1. https://www.plastruct.com/search?q=bend
  11. I've been playing Gran Turismo since GT1. I'm sad to see the impending demise of GT Sport, but thrilled GT7 comes out at 9pm tonight. I got an invite to buy a PS5 from PlayStation, but it's too much money for me right now. I do a lot of my racing online, so I'm hopeful that the folks with a PS5 and haptic controller don't have an edge.
  12. That's very nice, some great work going on there. And I like yours better. 👍
  13. I suggested that to him a long time ago. I also suggested resin. He was not interested in either and was adamant that it MUST be in plastic.
  14. That really brought a smile to my face! And yes, sidepipes would look great. Well done!
  15. Before the pandemic, I ordered some wheels from USCP (Ukrainian Scale Car Parts) in Russia. They got here in 5 days. Around the same time I had prescriptions mailed to me from the local CVS. They also took 5 days. My scripts usually take 2 days, but just this week I had problems again. They were mailed on Monday and did not show up till today (Friday).
  16. Oh wow, that's nice! Well done!😁
  17. That was one of Ron's more creative ideas, I fell in love with it watching his build thread. I wonder who has it now that he's gone?
  18. That's really neat! I like how low it is, and the addition of the surfboard looks great. Well done!
  19. Those are very nice! I like the maroon one best. But I'm confused. Which body did you use for the maroon one? I'd be quite surprised if the Monogram body looks that good chopped...and that the Revell windshield looks that wonky after a large chop. No matter, great work on them both!
  20. I love your design for those scallops!
  21. Nice! I'm sure you are aware you're holding some big bucks in your hand!
  22. I hate side sticks. That comes from learning to fly in a glider, with the stick in the middle, as well as my age and finding un-learning decades of experience difficult. Using my left hand for anything that involves skill or finesse just feels so counter-intuitive. I'm also an avid gamer, and having a game pad with the feel and response similar to that Cirrus system would make gaming, at best, quite a challenge.
  23. Three like that is plenty enough Dennis! 😁 Meticulous work as always. I love that T, most deserving of being in the magazne! Happy new year brother!
