      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Only industry I;ve seen where the buyer wants 40% off retail. Try that with a Ford dealer. 
    Did a show last Sat, had older rare stuff priced well below market. Guys still offered 50% ask. LOL. MIB IMC Chaparral 2E and Lola T70 at $40, offered me $25. Pound sand. If they were serious, many were, they paid without a peep. I let them go for 35 to guys who'd build them, not flip on eBay. New kits I bought and said WTF did I buy that, resold less than I paid to get out of my sight. Less than 40% off. I brought that stuff home. Did 1k of sales and only unhappy people were the guys that wouldn't take a good, fair deal. Lots of grails went home, and I missed none.
    30 kit sold well. RM aren't dummies. Production accidents happen. It'll be back soon enough. Hope the guys ripping beak on eBay choke on them.  
    Or, it's a giant Illuminati/Military-industrial plot to crush the hobby

    Cool, I just remembered I have a warped convertible body somewhere. I never look at easy way to do stuff, Thank god I'm slow and slothful, the kit will be out long before I get underway.

    Gag. My bad for thinking this was new Tamiya tool. I'd never seen it ages ago. I didn't even consider checking the instructions at the vendors. Misplaced Tamiya trust. 
    Old Esci not bad for what is is. Thanks for the awakening link.

    I don't ever remember a 1/24 934 back then. I've got all the original 935/935-78/936 kits, but all they had for 934 was the big scale car. Really, the new Tamiya is a simple kit? I haven't popped one yet, so good to know. 
    I've got an Esci from ages ago, Jagermeister. Not bad for age, but I'd pop for better. Hmmm. 
    991 GT3 RS or 991 GT3? Nah.

    So much want. Stroppe Baja on top. Stroppe Denver (modified) on bottom. Paint really only variation. Rarest and coolest of all.

    I've done business with him, and know Steve K. Great guy, will make sure castings are good, even from other casters. Decent prices and great service. Lots of friends in Omaha know him as well. Seems to be expanding into casting as well, but haven't discussed directly with him.

    934's are supposed to be "new tools" but they look like the Esci kits. The display models are missing the wing extension of the 1:1, I don't remember if the Esci had that or not. 
    With Tamiya's 934, why would anyone go up against that?
  9. keyser added a post in a topic Resin Realm... Closing up Shop...!!!   

    That was a QUOTE from you. Not a personal attack. 
    Greg posts a lot of stuff, I answered him.
    I answered you in another thread, asked you PLEASE search. I've done this many times. 
    Your entitled answer was to wait. 
    It takes LESS TIME to search than it does to complain. You POSTED here because you didn't like my referencing YOUR quote that you obviously had forgotten. 
    Your comments, some similar likes are fine. But sloth and entitlement not so much.
    Many here are happy to help, moreso when most have tried to help selves first. Get over yourself.

    Google is your friend. And it's only one caster. 
    Greg, you usually find stuff. http://www.resinrealm.net/
    Unclescott just waits for someone to google it for him. http://bfy.tw/9sv2

    The Sweater wants it quiet so he can escape wreckage if it fails. Binotto is the one under the guillotine. I'd suspect Allison started this before he left. I'd be very surprised if AMG not working on same lines. A steel/ceramic composite or laminate should tolerate high pressures like this. Bosch has those injectors well into development to production standards. 
    Good luck to the Scuderia, but I loathe the Sweater and Cigarette Boy. Seb wasting away but making the best because he can. Benz needed to get him. 
    Can't believe this has been up 16hr and nobody commented. Thanks for posting. 
    Just hunted down site I'd looked at awhile back. Porsche has worked with them. Investing due diligence. Anyway, they have tech, and someone is doing carbon/steel/ceramic stuff. Ferrari carbon suppliers http://www.refraschini.it/en are quite state of the art as are McLaren's http://www.carbotech.at/. Hmmm.

    Great gearing for that track, and that thing just pulls all day. Patient, waited for his moment, then bam. Great drive. Some incredibly ill driven Porsches, the first 911 and the idiot in the silver Cayman need some school time. Really nice pack running. Fun. That car would be great at COTA with that setup.

    Geez Bill, I've got one for that and a bash with the 57 snap HT. The Nomad roof/chassis gets the 57 body bits, and the Belair sedan CW chassis goes under the snap HT.
    I wonder if all the $ spent fixing this will be less $ than a round trip ticket and a weeks lodging in China?
  14. keyser added a post in a topic Italeri 2017 releases   

    I've got a Revell Gr4 Stratos, one in a Lodela box, one in a huge flat box. Full detail, decent body, maybe a little coarse. Wheels look a bit small. 80's box art on Lodela it seems. Nothing like the Italeri/Esci/Nitto. Full engine. IIRC open deck louvers. No pics at hand, has this ever been reissued? Until the Hase and Fuj issues, it was the best out there. 
  15. keyser added a post in a topic Italeri 2017 releases   

    The Stratos was also issued as a Nitto in Alitalia Logo, and Esci in several, including the black Pirelli logo. Curbside but body, wheels, and interior ok. Need to smooth a few things out. It can only be built as a wide body Gr4.
    The Hasegawa is nice kit, body is a strada with add on flares. zi actually think the Italeri rear wheels look better. Their strada version is nice.
    Fujimi Stratos is great, but I only have strada. I don't recall them ever doing a Gr4 widebody, did Fujimi?
    Here's nice pic of strada and Gr4 Strati, with Stratos 0 in background on L
    PS, JC, please leave a Mk II Escort for me?
