  1. Looks nice so far! The color is very 90's!
  2. Meng 1/24 h1 hummer

    Love it! Paint job looks amazing! I've seen issues with the roof not fitting correctly on a couple other builds as well, is it an issue with the windshield frame or with the roof itself?
  3. Radwood 2018 - Officially open!

    I'm probably going to just extend the date seeing as there hasn't been much done yet, especially for myself!
  4. Radwood 2018 - Officially open!

    I frequent the blog site Jalopnik quite often and have seen posts on a new car show they host called Radwood. The basic idea is a car show that showcases automobiles from the 80's and 90's as well as the clothing and memorable items from that era. Perhaps it's because I grew up in the 90's that I love the idea of this show so much and would love to have a CBP version of it. The basics: -Vehicle must be from the 80's/90's. Exceptions are vehicles built before/past this time period but are the same vehicle (e.g. 2001 Mustang and 1999 Mustang, or 1979 Mustang and 1980 Mustang) or vehicles built in the style of the time period (e.g. Cal-look VW, Boyd-style Hot Rod) -Any type of vehicle is welcome. -No limit to amount of customization, just limit to styling (if custom) that depicts the era. Build time would be from January 1st, 2018 through Dec 31st, 2018. Please post if you're interested and what you'll be building! I will update the first post with this information. Builder list: Jordan White - 1991 Ford Bronco Centurion iamsuperdan - 1990s Mercedes-Benz AMG 500SL 6.0 jaymcminn - Callaway Corvette Speedster dodgelover - PT Cruiser Pro Street Cpt Tuttle - Lotus Esprit TimJ - Porsche 911 Carrera Cabrio Jhedir6 - 1995 Honda Civic WickedRidez - 1995 Toyota Pickup Addition: You may certainly make a separate build thread elsewhere in the forum, please just add at least a post with any updates here as well so we can see them come together in one spot!
  5. Unfortunately they are fake made up markings, for their Jeep kit they removed the sidewall markings.
  6. What color are you thinking of going with?
  7. Round2 for 2018

    Nice! They heard my cries for the return of the 90's AMT/ERTL kits!
  8. How Old Are You

    29, almost 30, been building since second grade!
  9. Shizuoka Hobby Show 2018

    Didn’t realize factory cars weren’t their foray. Oh well, would be nice if Aoshima or Tamiya made one then!
  10. Shizuoka Hobby Show 2018

    I would totally buy one if they did a factory widebody Starion with those fantastic 5-spoke wheels!
  11. Future of the hobby

    It seems like a circular problem when you think about it. The companies want to sell kits to make a profit, and they basically have two main groups to market to. One side is the older crowd who love the kits they grew up with, and subjects that they grew up with, who don't care about few, if any, of today's vehicles. The other side is the younger crowd who also love the subjects they grew up with, but they are from a much more recent era and are the same ones that the older crowd generally doesn't care for. In catering to the older crowd, the companies can focus on reissues and get more of a profit from using paid-for tools, whereas with the younger crowd (which they need to continues into the future), they would, in most cases, need to create new tools of more modern subjects, which costs them money and lessens their profit.
  12. Desirable Reissues

    I've said it before, but I would love for Round 2 to reissue a bunch of the AMT/Ertl era kits of 90's cars and trucks, especially the Chevy C1500 and Ford F150 3n1 kits.
  13. Aftermarket wheels for my daily driver

    Best thing to do is measure from the hub face to the edge of the wheel well. That will tell you how much room you have to work with for wheel width, and with that the backspacing. It is true that it is generally tough to have deep dish wheels on FWD cars without adding flares. Btw, what kind of car is it?
  14. Jeep Rubicon 10th AV

    Meng makes this kit, this is their third 1/24 scale auto kit. No relation to the Revell kit, they are in fact different generations.

    I keep forgetting that the gasoline I6 was an option, I never really see much mention of it.
  16. 1/12 Super Street '69 Camaro

    The one thing I will say is Shapeways is just a third party 3D printer, all the models are uploaded by individuals in their shops, so any issues related to scale or accuracy are due to the sellers.

    Very nice! Is that meant to be the Nissan diesel that they offered in the later model years?
  18. Any updates? Have you decided which direction you're going in regards to 2WD vs 4WD?
  19. dose toys r us have model kits?

    Did you notice that the new Oldsmobiles are in early this year?
  20. Our Michael's is a joke

    x2, the Hobby Lobbies I've been too have lately exceeded the amount of kits that Micheals carries by at least double it seems.
  21. WTH! Someone paid $2600 for a pre-built model. Why?

    The fact that the price jumps from 77 to 2600 makes me suspect that there is some foul play involved.
  22. So doing a bit more work last night, I realized that the two bodies aren't quite the same in height and profile. I realized that I will have to cut horizontally across the bronco body and add a piece in to get the right height, as well as to allow me to match the profile of the F250 body. Also I started cutting apart fenders to get the correct rear wheel arches installed.
  23. I'm building a 1991 Bronco Centurion in the Nite trim (if anyone recalls, I previously built a 1992 F150 Nite). I'm starting with a built Monogram Bronco, and one of the Monogram F250 kits. The F250 cab was already cut down to make it into a regular cab, but I didn't do the best job cutting it and figured it would be good for this build. I cut off the front of the Bronco to get it to the correct length, and now just need to change out the rear wheelwells and fill in the roof. I also shortened the chassis, but didn't get a picture of it. Starting kit: SAM_0276 by mudder_trucker8 Front and back combined: SAM_0279 by mudder_trucker8 SAM_0280 by mudder_trucker8 Rough height with a set of Mud King XT tires from Fireball Modelworks, and the 8-lug wheels from the 78 GMC 4x4 kit. SAM_0281 by mudder_trucker8
  24. What's the One Part You Hoard?

    Wheels and tires in general. You never know what will work unless you can try different combos both together, and with the kit itself. I will occasionally look on ebay for wheel and tire sets that interest me so I have more of a selection in the future.
  25. Yup I mentioned that above, I have the bedsides ready to swap!
