  1. Hillibillies coupe

    That thing is just wicked. very cool build.
  2. Foose Cadillac Body

    Sam, any update on this? Still being patient, just hopeful it's getting closer
  3. Foose Cadillac Body

    Sam, any update on this?
  4. R.I.P.

    More unnecessary speculation related to the "demise" of Revell USA.
  5. I knew it had more detail to it than just a piece of tube. This thing is so freaking cool. Well done, as always
  6. 1/8th Monogram Big T Coupe

    Very cool build. Thanks for sharing
  7. You always do such a nice job on the details with your projects. Tell us about the piece used to mount the side pipe to the bedside. Please
  8. 25 Oldsmobile Roadster - finished ( or nearly!)

    Looks great with the fenders and turtle deck. Nice color too. The improvements you mentioned to the wheels will only improve an already good looking ride.
  9. T Fruitwagon 1925 AMT stalled project

    I actually dig the fenders, IF you bring them closer together. tuck the running boards under the body and bring those rear fenders to rest against the sides of the turtle deck should do the trick.
  10. 32 big deuce roadster pickup?

    Your scratchbuilding skills are impressive. Missing frame rail??? Just make a new one! Excellent. I'm following. But I have a feeling once a mod sees this it will get moved to the big scale area
  11. Positives to come from the Revell Deal?

    Revell and RoG were both owned by Hobbico for the last few years. Hence, RoG was also obviously constrained by Hobbico's capital issues, which may explain not being able to retain the Ferrari rights.
  12. Ferrari FXX-K, Tamiya, 1/24

    Very nice buildup. If you hadn't pointed out the "flaws", most of us would not have noticed.
  13. Foose '48 Caddy

    That color really suits this car. Nice build
  14. Positives to come from the Revell Deal?

    first, let me say I'm sorry for the Revell employees that did lose their jobs. Now, here's a couple thoughts on statements made here. I'm not going to speculate at all about what could happen because that's not helpful to anyone at this early juncture. I'll simplytry to clear up some of the muddy thoughts that have been presented here so far. disclaimer- I am no expert. 1) Yes, RoG kits that are imported into the US are more expensive. However, when you look at RoG tooled kits that are reboxed and sold in the US they are comparably priced to other items in the Revell line. 2) Many of the new tools produced by RoG in the last 5-10 years have been lauded as Tamiya-like in quality, fit and accuracy. Imagine if they brought those standards to new subjects of US vehicles.
  15. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    Excellent idea. Speculation is useless at this point. They've owned the company for less than a week. How about we, as a collective hobby, give them a chance to set up shop and show us what they're going to do.
