  1. SMP24 Resin Lamborghini Espada

    Like I said on automotive forums' car modeling page, SMP24 does beautiful work, it's just the subjects don't interest me. I wish they would kit some more mainstream classic cars, like the Lamborghini 400GT, or Ferrari SWB California Spider (yes, Renaissance does one, but its not as nice at SMP24 work), or Mercedes Pagoda SL or later W107 450sl.
  2. CBP: Radwood 2018 - AMG Mercedes 500SL

    They came from the Tamiya Mercedes S600 coupe - no modifications needed to install them on the 500SL. You can also use the 500SL kit tires since they fit the wheels just fine, even if the side wall is a bit thick.
  3. Revell AMG GT

    I totally understand your frustration. From my extensive investigation and interchanging 3 different bumpers with 3 bodies, I came to the conclusion that the issue is a slightly warped body, around the leading edge of the trunk (it's pushed down), that causes the bumper to not fit correctly, especially when trying to line up the sides after you've lined up the center. I ordered replacement bodies for my two kits, and finally got them to fit right. I think there was a bad batch of molds, especially early in production. The yellow finish looks good!
  4. Shizuoka Hobby Show 2018

    Thanks! I saw a picture on FB about an Aoshima Toyota 2000GT? Any info on that?
  5. Mclaren 570

    Looks great!
  6. #50 IWC Watches Mercedes Benz AMG GT3

    Awesome work! Love this livery.
  7. CBP: Radwood 2018 - AMG Mercedes 500SL

    Nice color choice. I painted one of mine in the same color.
  8. Jaguar XK 120, Revell

    Beautiful work!!
  9. 1/24 Bugatti Chiron

    I think they are. A lot of parts, like "Wheel tyres," listed above are not pictured. For example, the glass parts.
  10. Mclaren 570

    Nice start! Can't wait to see how the Burton Blue turns out.
  11. Shizuoka Hobby Show 2018

    The only car item from Tamiya is a yellow version of the LaFerrari.
  12. Shizuoka Hobby Show 2018

    True, but that's prebuilt and would require stripping, etc. to make it your own. I've preordered the Chiron, and hoping that HD has improved their quality.
  13. Shizuoka Hobby Show 2018

    Agree with Bob - ehhhh on these releases. Hobby Design, however, will be releasing a Bugatti Chiron!
  14. Aoshima Aventador SV

    Nice work so far! Looking forward to more.
  15. Jaguar Mk. II Saloon Is Done!

    I'd double-check for molding lines. They were present on my kit. Pretty faint, but still there. Will be watching!
