      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

    All the wood bucks I have seen are 1/10 scale so when they use a 2.5 reduction.....1/25 scale!

    Not sure any kit manufacture even attended the NYC show. It, like the iHobby (RCTHA) has shrunk to a shadow of it's self. 
  10. Dave Van added a post in a topic Anyone had this problem with Tamiya Paint?   

    Which Dupli-color primer????
    I have better luck with Dupli-color #1699 sealer as a primer. Seems less hot maybe??? Whatever reason almost no issues ever for me.

    Cost of manufacturing in China is getting real close to USA.......add to it the issues around some of China's domestic polices.....USA is viable again.....

    They closed shop before kit was ready.

    Monogram and AM Taurus = same designer........
    The AM kit has much finer details. Kinda what a next generation Monogram kit could have been. The MSRP target was the same as Monogram....in order to compete......and the body, tires and glass were to be shared with a Testors version that was pre-painted and much simplified.  That is how they planned to keep the cost down.....duel purpose kit.  I have drawings for the Testors version but not test shot....not sure any were done.
