  1. 1/24 Tamiya Honda NSX (old)

    Tiago is a member here. He has an awesome Youtube channel, TM Modelkits , where he chronicles his builds through video. You should check his channel out.
  2. Tamiya Fair 2018

    But Paul, nowadays Tamiya uses 1/20 for F-1 cars! JK
  3. Tamiya Fair 2018

    I'll probably get two of this kit, along with the Revell full detail 2016 LeMans car.
  4. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Tom, just a heads up for you. This is a great kit to build, and is unique as an F1 car. It does originate from the days when Tamiya used battery powered electric motors. The structure of the model does still include a battery compartment and a plastic insert which served as the battery compartment door. Bill A.
  5. From A Porsche 962

    Thanks Will. It looks great. Mine languishes in a box. I really need to get back at it. I don't believe my "yellow" is correct either. LOL It is a 50/50 blend of Mr. Color Yellow and Orange.
  6. From A Porsche 962

    I am curious Will as to how you dealt with the standard fins that were part of Hasagawa's 962 body. Did you use a Dremel type tool to grind them off? Or was it slice and file smooth? They look just right!

    Well done Dan. Outstanding models, all of them. I really like your Big Truck award winner!
  9. 50 Austin coupe chassis

    Jason, Perry's Resin was Randy Frost's resin company. You will find lots of postings about it. Randy is now the proprietor of Dailey Hobbies in Whitby, ON https://www.daileyhobbies.com/ I am sure he has Facebook presence. I saw Randy at the Group 25 Model Car contest, this past weekend. I am not sure as to how much time he dedicates to Perry's Resin at this point. He would probably be able to answer any questions related to this trans kit.

    Dan, big congratulations on the "Bonus Stuff". Hopefully, when pictures get uploaded, I will get a chance to see the related built kits! LOL
  11. Throwing in the towel. Need some advice

    I agree with Scott. When I packed kits to sell at a show, my cardboard boxes (2' x 2' x 2') held from 20 to 25 kits. I would consider keeping about 1/3 of what you own. Choose the kits you really like. This might end up occupying one carton. The other 2/3, I would bundle into lots of say 5 kits. You could then sell them as bundles. Keep the contents of a bundle themed, such as all muscle cars. Vary the desirability of the kits within each bundle. Some of high value and some average. If the equipment does not take up a lot of space, I would just hold onto it and take it with you. Hope this helps.
  12. Definitely the G25 show. Undecided about the London show. The London show is the same day as the Ottawa show.
  13. My new and improved model bench

    Nice work space Cale. I spy a Rat Roaster. Those were pretty hard to come by here in Canada. Lucky guy! LOL
  14. In somewhat chronological order: Tweed (Belleville), Orangeville, Oakville, Waterloo, Burlington, Toronto, Windsor and finally various other locations throughout Toronto. Since everywhere that I have lived has been within Ontario, I guess that means that I am not that adventurous in nature! LOL
  15. GSL announcement for final contests

    Kurt, I received the same message today. I have only been once and it was certainly an amazing experience. If my traveling partner and I decide to go again, our chances have been narrowed down for us.
