    • Board Upgrade   04/23/2017

      Unfortunately, we were unable to upgrade the board software due to some technical difficulties. We will try again once we get the problems worked out.

    Likewise. Nice photography too.

    Yeah, I just assembled my engine and the part fit was fiddly.  Good luck on the rest!

    As of now, Tamiya has nothing for us (I used Google translate for the link):  http://www.tamiya.com/japan/cms/newstopics/4693-hobbyshownewitem.html?platform=hootsuite

    Nice work, and I love DB396! I would probably have just ordered a new body from Tamiya USA. I've generally found that one a pillar bends or breaks, it never works out right in the end.

    Very nice!

    Cant wait to see more, especially the color.

    Also, Acu-stion showed what appeared to be a CAD image of them designing it, but I think it looks more handmade, as most of the lines are uneven.

    Acu-stion NSX wing
    If you were thinking of getting Acu-stion's resin wing for the new Tamiya NSX, just a word of warning - its pretty crude and inaccurate, and I don't think worth the $15.
    It is too thick, doesn't have the right profile shape, the edges are too round, and its missing some elements. See attached photos.
    Here is Acu-stion's response to my concerns: "It has understood. You must correct it. Please make it by yourself. After all, the enjoyment increases because it is a model."
    While I don't mind doing some scratch building, when I pay $15 for a small part, nearly half the price of the kit, I don't expect to have to correct the part.

    I'm in the same boat. Ordered something in December, still waiting. Sent an email this week, but haven't received a reply. My general understanding is that it takes time for resin casters to deliver their products!

    Very nice!
  11. BVC500 added a post in a topic Revell RoG 2017 releases: Panamera 2 and Porsche Junior 108   

    I'm happy with the Panamera and DB5 (if this is a new tool). It's nice to see a more mundane car, if you can can a Panamera turbo mundane in the grand scheme of things, produced. I don't want just all supercars to build.

    Awesome work.
  13. BVC500 added a post in a topic Ferrari FXX K with Hobby Design Super Detail Set   

    Awesome set up and can't wait to see more of the FXX K build.

    can't wait to see more
