MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. Great color choice and your photography is spot on - really capturing the NSX nicely.
  2. I hoping to find someone to create a passenger mirror for the 1/24 Tamiya Porsche 959, which I think could be created by scanning the driver's mirror, mirroring it in a program, and 3d printing it. The prototype cars had a single driver's mirror (which Tamiya based its model on), but the production cars had driver's and passenger's. I'd like to build a 959 Reimagined that my second cousin, Bruce Canepa, is producing. I talked to a guy in Italy on FB who could do it and mailed him the original part, which was lost in the mail. I had to order a new part from Tamiya, so I'm hoping to find someone close to home who could do it. Here's what I'm talking about. Thanks for any information you can provide!
  3. Nah, IMHO if there's a good kit already out there, I'd rather have a manufacturer focus on another subject!
  4. Pricey, but an excellent model from what I've heard: https://uscp-ua.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=779
  5. Too bad the 993 Italieri kit didn't look like the car on the box and was more accurate. So many things wrong with the kit, including the chassis and suspension. If the Monogram Lotus Esprit gets my vote for being the worst-fitting kit ever to build, this gets my vote for being the least accurate. Lol.
  6. TamiyaBlog reports that the upcoming fall Shizuoka show (Sept. 9-12) has been cancelled, but the kit announcements will continue online. I wonder what Tamiya has in store. I hope they take advantage of the increased interest in the hobby due to the pandemic and announce a new 1/24 car kit. Shall we begin the prediction game? This thread can also serve to discuss announcements from others manufacturers as they come in.
  7. I have an extra set. PM sent.
  8. I think I may have spare decals for you.
  9. James - what was Revell's reaction to the windshield screen not being accurate? Revell (Germany) has issues that they repeat, like the terribly developed Panamera body or way back in the day packaging issues on the Ferrari California that would cause the windshield screen to be crushed. Seems that they don't process and internalize feedback or they have a short memory.
  10. Beautiful work and excellent photography. I like that you chose an atypical interior color. Looks great.
  11. HLJ used to offer a parts service, but they haven't since the tsunami. A shame, because it was really useful.
  12. Great job! Renaissance did a much better job than Revell/Italeri at capturing the essence of the 250 GT SWB California Spyder.
