  1. I went to the Kalamazoo toy show yesterday for some styrene therapy and picked up a resin '50 Olds sedan delivery body, an Airfix boxed Peugeot 206WRC rally car, a Revell '69 Dart, a Porsche 962 and a Toyota 88 C by Hasegawa. I also found some wood grain that applies like BMF. That should be interesting.
  2. Yeah, I goofed. Iwas at work when I wrote about the Camaro. I later saw it's 1/24th.
  3. I was told by one of the Round 2 guys that an original '65 GTO promo was found in the bottom of a box under some other, newer, promos. He speculated it might have been stashed there and forgotten.
  4. I wonder why it's going to be 1/24th scale. The Camaros are 1/25th. I thought all the new Savino offering wee going to be 1/25th unless it was an older body style used on the old Monogram chassis.
  5. I paint in my basement until it gets too cold to stand being down there ( I live alone so I can stink the place up). Yes, it's heated but it still gets too cool to get good paint jobs done.
  6. The Motor City NNL and toy show and swap meet returns on November 13th,2022 at its usual location of the Macomb County College Sports and Expo Center. It's located at 12 Mile and Hayes in Warren, Michigan. It goes from 9 a.m. to 3p.m. The themes are Street Rods featuring the 90th anniversary of the'32 Ford. The sub theme is 75 years of JO-HAN and the cult theme is 75 years of Ferrari. The toy show/ swap area is again sold out with over 350 tables Admission to the show is still $5 and there's no extra charge to enter models in the NNL! Bring your builds, lots of them. Show us what you've built and what you're working on.
  7. Buddies and I went to the hooby store near where we went to eat and bought an Aoshima Lamborghini Aventador roadster and a can of Tamiya TS-97 pearl yellow paint.
  8. Buddies and I went to a toy show yesterday in Rossford, Ohio. I brought home two old built ups- a Revell '59 Ford Skyliner and an AMT '61 Valiant- and a Monogram Corvette Indy kit in a bag.

  10. Today I picked up the Dan Gurney '63 Lotus Indy car and a Fujimi Lamborghini Murcielago.
  11. Love to use that TS-14 for black cars. Almost as hard to screw up as is primer.
  12. Yes, the red car. Who made the yellow version? Gunze?
  13. One of the Moebius ' 65 Plymouth kits has the interior color suggestions from the Hudson kits.
  14. Three spelling errors- "Mallory", "Weiand", "Hilborn"
  15. Last Thursday I was tipped to some Porsche kits at a church rummage sale. I picked up UT 911GT1 Evo, a Tamiya 1/20 scale 935( the green Kremer Vaillant car), a 1/24 scale Tamiya 935/77 Martini livery kit and one I never knew existed- A 1/20th scale Union 930 Turbo with opening doors and an engine.
  16. I picked up one of these at a church rummage sale the other day. I don't think Union ever did their own models, they just used other companies molds in their own boxes. But I don't recall ever seeing this specific large Porsche by anyone else. Anyone know who originally made this kit?
  17. I bought some thinners, 2 bottles of paint, a Fujimi VW Golf VR32, and the Moebius ramp truck.
  18. I believe that upon post race inspection the frame was discovered to be cracked so the car never raced again.
  19. I believe that Testor fine grain lacquer primer is still available ( though it's been a while since I've checked), It was surprisingly good. Not quite as fine as Tamiya but still sands out smooth.
  20. Primer color most often depends on the top coat color choice. One bit of advice; Don't bother using a pink primer to make a red top coat "pop". Unless the red is translucent it makes NO difference at all. I know this because I've tried it.
