    Thanks to u too Paul for the advice!! It's nice to know these kits have potential ..... Eversince I bought the Revell 1/12 F40, I'm extremely careful of bigger scale kits and box art

    As we dont have many kit options in South Africa, I have to source from overseas, which can be a bit problematic sometimes.

    Thanks Mark & Jim - This is exactly what I was looking for - (I was a bit worried about the motorized part)!!!!

    Bought the model off E-bay for $45 (oooooops, think i might've paid too much) - Planning to order the PE kit as well (29 euro's incl. shipping)

    Once things in my life have settled down a bit I will take up the build with the intention of making this into a display piece.

    Anybody Have experience with this kit?
    Hi All

    Does anyone here have any experience with this kit? I tried to Google it but can only find articles in Japanese/Chinese, I also tried this forum- but no luck - I want to know things like the build quality, kit features, possibility of detailing etc etc.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    P.S: I managed to find a PE Set for this kit too - http://www.autographmodel.de/Deutsch/D-M1-16/Boxer-Platine.jpg

  5. Flymeister added a post in a topic OT- anyone here own or recommend a GPS unit?   

    In my opinion what you should be looking for is :

    1) Size of screen - Trying to see something on a small screen whilst driving is not fun..or safe
    2) Key features - Lots of cheaper makes have great features that just don't work
    3) Prices of maps/updates and extra services

    user feedback is always helpfull (as with all above) - Also,go to the manufacturers sites and see what they have to offer. Two major names are Garmin and TomTOm as far as I'm aware - Don't know if you guys get Road Angel in the USA.

    not to forget the Lamborghini Countach, oh and the Citroen DS - air suspension and directional headlights (I believe the Tucker also had the headlight in the middle of the hood).

    OK..so this got me thinking- Ford GT40, Jag E-Type,Ferrari 250 GTO, AC Cobra 427, BMW's M1..... the list goes on

    Mmmmmmmm...... looks like this debate can go on forever..lol.. here's what I thought - Set a deadline for submissions, then maybe post each and every car in this topic, and we can vote??! (not sure of the logistics as I've never done a poll before)

    What u guys think?

    Key moments in auto history
    OK - So those of you who are also on "another modeling forum" would recognise this topic.

    (Unfortunately the topic was deemed to be irrelevant there, and was deleted)

    here we go:

    Which cars would you say were instramental in developing the automobile into what it is today ( be it design; technology etc.) ?

    From the first Steam wagon to today's modern marvels.

    I should also explain that I'm thinking of building a collection of models that will represent this history, but I'm not sure of the cars?!

    1. Carefully holding down that small yet crucial part whilst the glue is drying... pulling your fingers away and realising you glued it to your fingers....right ...lesson #1... use tweezers
    2. Airbrushing the body you carefully labored over for weeks.....and realising the paint thinner you used got water in it.... lesson # 2 - check thinner first before mixing
    3. putting the (black) model down on your (black) seat to go answer the phone (one of those #&#% sales calls) ....get back and sit on it.....lesson #3... always CHECK where the model is first
    4. lesson # 4 - DO NOT continue building on a bad build night ;-)
