    GSL Championship
    Dear GSL Enthusiast:

    We are pleased to announce that the Twenty-Second GSL International Scale Vehicle Championship and Convention, presented by the International Model Car Builders’ Museum, will be held at the Sheraton City Centre Hotel in Salt Lake City (the same location as in 2007). As you may know, the Championship no longer mails documents to everyone because of the high cost of printing and mailing.

    We’ve just published three web documents so you can learn more about GSL-XXII: the GSL Convention Manual, a picture-rich “GSL Highlights,†and the tentative GSL -XXII Schedule. These documents contain all the information on the twenty-second Championship, and can be found on the website: http:/www.GSLChamiponship.org and then click on “Late Breaking News†where you’ll find all three documents under the February 1, 2009 date. The PRE-REGISTRATION and PRE-ORDER forms are also there as links.

    We urge you to download and read these important documents about the upcoming GSL Championship.

    See you here in April!

    Cheers,

    Mark S. Gustavson

    I made a reservation at the Wayne Inn, which is right nearby. Has anyone else made a reservation? At the old Parsippany Holiday Inn, perhaps?

  8. Paul C. Anagnostopoulos added a post in a topic Crazy Modeler Decals For Slr Mclaren   

    I'm looking at the Crazy Modeler decal sheet. I understand the four license plates, the CHMSL, and the two "722". What are the rest of those decals?

    I'm particularly fascinated by the eight clear dots.

    Crazy Modeler Decals For Slr Mclaren
    Has anyone used the Crazy Modeler photoetch and decal set for the Tamiya SLR Mclaren? If so, can you explain the decals? They are not described in the otherwise excellent instruction booklet.

    Well, what do you know! Bill and I are working on the same model at the same time. I just started building the Magnum a couple of days ago. I'm planning a simple build with just a few extras.

    Bill, did you find any good photo collections of the engine online somewhere? I can't locate much.

  11. Paul C. Anagnostopoulos added a post in a topic I want a kit of this!   

    The wheels are ridiculous. Can we stop with the 37" monster wheels, please? Pretty soon the entire car is going to be inside the wheels.

    Thanks for the info, guys. I know nothing about 1/32 scale kits.

    Andy, what's a good source for the Matchbox kits?

    1/32 scale engines
    I have a whacky project in mind for which I need a 1/32 scale engine. Can anyone recommend kits that have reasonably good engines? It needs to be an engine on the smaller side so it will fit.

    I just shot HoK Cinnamon Pearl basecoat today. I thinned it with Klean-Strip Virgin Lacquer Thinner (primer grade). The good folks at Black Gold said that was fine stuff, and it appears to have worked well.*
