    The Tamiya Williams FW24 is what I missed.I think I have at least one of every other Tamiya 1/20 F-1 kit.I'll find it someday.

    It was my first time attending and I was absolutely amazed at the number and quality of models on display.If this was a judged contest I don't know how long it would take to pick out class winners(or if it could be done).
    I was pleasantly surprised when both magazines wanted to photograph one of the models I brought.
    I'll attend again-maybe not next year but I will be back!

    I'll throw in the R&R Vacuum Craft '72 Riviera.I've never started mine and every time I dig it out I wonder  if my skills will EVER be sufficient to build that thing.
  4. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Anyone have any real insider info on Revell's "new" '70 Charger?   

    Hmmmm-a complete new tool for a model of a car for which at least 50% of the tooling already exists.This is sort of thinking that gave us three separate chassis pans for the '67 & '69 Camaros and the '68 Firebird(essentially the same car underneath).To my inexperienced in tooling brain this would seem to be a needless duplication of effort.

    Whenever this kit arrives my build will be the topless Melrose Missle.I will have a pleasant wait.

    There will be about 10 of us from the Detroit Area Auto Modelers attending the show.Look for us in our snazzy flamed grey club shirts.
    It's the first time for me and I'm  excited about going there.

    About 260  total vendor tables sold as of last weekend.Come and see the show and the Motor City Madness contest.Five dollars gets you in the door.

    I used Tamiya TS flat brown on the roof of my Moebius '53 Hudson.After I sanded out a few dust nibs I polished it  with Novus #2 and it came out beautiful.

    I use about half of my basement for building and kit storage.
  10. ZTony8 added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    One of the model clubs I belong to bought up a former club president's collection of over 800 car and truck kits,built ups and promos. So yesterday we split  a good chunk of the haul.I picked up 26 kits(including 8 Jo-Han mid 80s re-issues,3 still sealed and enough pieces to build a '66 Caddy ambulance plus spares),some wheel sets,and a nicely foiled '59 Dodge Jo-Han(X-EL) promo.
    Earlier in the weekend I got 3 Heller Citroen rally car kits,the new Moebius Ventura and the Round 2 re-issue of the 1960 Corvette and then my nearest hobby shop put some kits on clearance and I picked up the 1979 version of the Tamiya Lotus 79 F1 car( been waiting 2 years for that to go on sale) and the Wurth liveried Group 5 Capri.
    I can now walk faster since my wallet is so much lighter.

    I hope that our continued support of Round 2 by buying these re-issued kits leads to them being able to tool up new kits for us.
  12. ZTony8 added a post in a topic trick`s of the trade   

    Sometimes I'll leave the small parts on the sprue,sometimes I'll use clips.Or if I have several small parts to be painted the same color I just put them on folded over masking tape and spray them.

     Since I'd be taking the lump sum because of my age( I don't expect to live to almost 92), after the tax hit I'd be left with about 570 million dollars.I would take a different route.I'd look into buying Modelhaus and other aftermarket companies and combine them into one full line accessory company operating from a large commercial facility with expanded product lines and consistent production,inventory, and delivery.

    The B&N closest to me doesn't carry the magazine.Next time I go there I'll bug them about carrying it.
    The hobby shop closest to me is where I buy my issues of the magazine.
  15. ZTony8 added a post in a topic How to remove polish before repaint?   

    IF it's a lacquer you burned through and IF it's on an edge or a ridge(a wheel opening or a panel crease line) you may be able to blend in by brushing some of the color on the burned area.It will usually flow out and blend almost invisibly.I've done this a few times with Tamiya sprays and have had good results.
