  1. Fujimi Mercedes SLK200...

    Nice work! In some respects, I think Fujimi captured the shape better than Tamiya!
  2. Those paints look great!
  3. I'd be interested in the below that was mentioned on pg. 3. RKD37: 1988 BMW M5 E34(1/24)RKD38: 1988 BMW M5 E34 Tail Light Masks(1/24)
  4. '66 Lincoln

    I like it a lot!
  5. Ford GT 2016 in 1/24 by Tamiya

    Yep! We've been talking about it here:
  6. 2019 Revell (Germany) Q1

    Maybe the new 911, which will be introduced very soon, given their Porsche license.
  7. Tamiya Fair 2018

    Kinda makes sense now that Tamiya USA made the announcement first
  8. Tamiya Fair 2018

    Couldn't agree more.
  9. It does, just like the 1/24 versions of Italeri kit.
  10. I have it, but haven't built it. It's more detailed than the 1/16 Italeri version, but the Italeri version more accurately captures the 300sl's look. The greenhouse on this kit is too squashed IMO.

    I've read that the Supra will debut at the Detroit Auto Show, not LA Auto Show, so I don't think Tamiya will front run Toyota with a Supra announcement at this time. Surely, it'll be produced in the future. It could be the TS-050 car, since Tamiya does that in RC form, but not a guarantee since not all RC cars become static kits. Guess we'll just have to wait to see in 3 more days!

    You're probably right, Bob, about the Supra given the circumstantial evidence, which is probably a good thing for me - i.e., one less kit to stash in the closet to be maybe built in 30 years. I'd love the Ferrari Monza SP2. I'd probably buy an Aperta, though I don't think they'll do that. It would be a fairly easy transkit, which I suggested to Plamoz, who has been very quiet since March about new products

    On Facebook, Tamiya USA said that Tamiya will introduce an all-new 1/24 kit at Tamiya Fair in Shizuoka from Nov. 17-18. Wonder what it could be??
  14. You can now ship from Europe...Spotmodel started doing so again, but the bottle quantity has to be small, like 30 ml (most Zero jars are still too big at 60 ml). Yesterday, I placed an order for two bottles of paint from Gravity Colors. Here's hoping that it doesn't take 6 months to get them!
