    Model Roundup is currently showing it as coming, now, in early September.

    Sweet 300ZX! Nice clean build.

    Sweet build of an iconic sports racer. Kudos!

    The Porsche kit might be worth something but be advised it is supposed to be rereleased in the coming months. This will be the first time in many, many years.

    This may have been mentioned before but staying on the truck theme, how about 57-60 Ford trucks. It would seem to be a lot of possibilities there.
  6. peter31a added a post in a topic National convention coverage?   

    That's why I asked if you meant the IPMS Nationals as I was sure they were in Columbus. A group from Toronto IPMS and Peel Scale Modelers have taken a bus tour down there. I thought there would be more coverage too.

    Do you mean the IPMS convention? If so there is slight coverage under the Contest and Shows Category. 
  8. peter31a added a post in a topic Next up from Moebius ?   

    Keep in mind, no matter what we wish for, Moebius has chosen topics that they can get more mileage from. They picked the Hudson's as they could also be done as stock car racers. I'm sure that's the thoughts with the 65 Plymouths, the 61 Pontiacs and the upcoming Comets. All can have a spin off/Model King release as some type of race car. Hopefully they will also choose subjects that can be spun off as wagons etc as Revell has done with the 57 Ford.

    That car is a combination of 2 cars my Dad had. He had a 69 CS in that odd green colour and he had a 74 In blue. Learning how to drive in that 74 was like learning to drive while piloting the USS Enterprise. When you were backing up there was a whole lot of car behind you.

    Great to see one of these built up. Thanks.
  11. peter31a added a post in a topic New look   

    Yep, there it is. But it used to a nice little list at the bottom of the main page, I could see at a glance if my friends were online. Now I have to go through 6 pages of members to see who's online at the moment? Again, I don't mean to be complaining but I don't see how that is an improvement.

    Yes, I have the same 2 questions as those were items I used frequently. I've also noticed some stating how pretty it looks but I find it dull greyish not at all clear like the last version. My Safari browser is completely up to date so I'm not sure how this is better as it is harder to read and dull to look at. But I guess if it's working better for others and it's attracting younger folk then it is good.

    We have 2 threads going on this topic, but Anthony I asked the same question on the other thread. I didn't have a long list but it will take awhile to find then again. I find this update greyish. Not as clean and crisp as the old one.
  14. peter31a added a post in a topic Happy Birthday Tom Kren.   

    Happy Birthday, Tom! Hope you had a great day and got some hobby related gifts.

    It can get interesting about the wildlife.
    About 3 weeks ago I was heading southbound into Barrie, Ontario, the nearest city to me, when the traffic slowed to almost a stop. I was rather surprised as it was early on a Sunday morning and the cottage country exodus hadn't really started yet. Anyway it turned out there were about 4 adult geese and around 30 goslings running down the slow lane. Just after I got past the raging horde it came on the radio to be careful because of them and that someone had been called to try to get them out of there.
