    For Rhodes that don't or cannot comprehend the idea of multiple purchases., there's a variety of benefits. Models usually gain value with age as their availabliliy becomes scarce. Once the production run stops. You buy what interests you at a particular time with the view to build and store it until ihe time is right. These wretched Hoarders are the guys you often buy that rare kit off at swap meets. I really wonder about the intelligence or lack of it some people. This is a basic thread making what should be regarded as a normal enough conversational topic between modelers. Leave the negative Judgment at the door

    Don't defend yourself.
    It's a logical enough question and if you regard a forum as a social meeting place to discuss model it's bang on.
    It's a similar question to sjow us your work aera.
    here's some on my inventory..some I might add.

    heads up Danny, there are plenty here who insight with the comments which you've reacted to..
    Be strong and ignore. you(we) with logic are seroiusly out numbered here .

    Peugeot, Renault, Citroen,Simca, Talbot . have all had success in a variety of motorsport.
    They share a few common trates, Comfortable. economical,style. they're dwon fall especially in the last 15 years (Simca, Talbot exempt) is electrical/electronics

    ceasing the opportunity to lambaste east Geman or eastern european / Russian cars is due to the economic climate and standards they were constructed in.


    My choice is the Austin Allegro

    this car epitomised the final nail in the coffin of so many British build..BMC. cars. in the late 70-80's
    A combination of poor build quality,poor economy shocking road holding and no motorsport success.

    the engine is the TAMIYA kit show here is a V6 colonge.
    But if you substitute the engine from 1/24 1985 Ford SVO Mustang

    you'll be well on the way to an accurate road version

    wow...

    Sometimes I regret sharing my knowledge.

    I'd review our current model stock and insist that a sample of 5 be built OOB. by board members.

    Allowing a week to build 1 one the 5 selected during company hours.

    They would be asked to identify the Feedback on their findings.

    Commission an experenced model builder to discuss same.

    This would make these people directly aware of the flaws that are present in current products.

    Set a task schedule to remidy these defects with 3 months with the tooling supplier naturally discussing design aspects.


    Insist that all future products recieve this pre production Proofing method.

    Set a design program in place to eleminate the use of tab gates on some items and look at the use of submarine gates on wheels and chrome parts especially.
