      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

  1. dublin boy added a post in a topic Esci/Revell Mercedes 500 SLC   

    The 500 SLC was an homologation version  produced for the 1978 WRC and was as such a production car with the then new 5.0 litre all aluminium engine.

    Nice to see an XR4i being built. The injected Pinto 2 litre Sierras went very well back in the day for a family car. I remember driving them when my dad's Scorpio would be in for a service, same engine much less weight and no electric everything.

    The wood interior decals are difficult and need lots of microsol and a hair dryer.

    Yep.you hawe to bmf the windows as well as the body shell, although masking and Molotow pens should help make it easier these days I'd imagine.
    Also the photo etch type chrome side trims just wouldn't stick down for me, but if it's the recent re-release you should be ok.

    I'm on a couple of sites that aren't car only, but you can put your kits up for sale in a given thread.
    It's between you and the other party only, i haven't seen any trouble with it.

    Sorry to hear, looks fixable.
    Haven't heard the expression butter fingers for a long, long time!

    Looks like it George, I wonder why they put 1/25 on the box.
  11. dublin boy added a post in a topic Revelles new Mazda Miata   

    The Tamiya body is much better, but the Revell is the only full kit.
    Can anyone shed some light on this, they never tooled up a brand new one when they had this in the company stash surely?
  12. dublin boy added a post in a topic Revelles new Mazda Miata   

    It's not Airfix George, it's Revell. It's a rare kit, but George's new release seems identical.
    Says 1/24 on my box, the new repop says 1/25.
    Here's a couple of pics comparing the wheelbase, the Tamiya i1/24 is the silver one.

    I assume it's very basic, love to see the pics though.
