  1. Hi Nick, sorry to hear about Jeremys situation, I hope he recovers well. I did order items from him, does this mean I will still receive them or can a refund be arranged ?

  2. Jeremy John/Clearly Scale?

    Hello, this is Nick, his de facto distributor and friend in the US. Although a very private person, you should all know that he has been recovering from cardiac surgery and having a rough time of it. He has no home internet, so he can only return your emails from the library when he’s not in the midst of surgical rehab. I couldn’t tell you how many times he’s been re-hospitalized in the last year, since the first surgery...but he’s too private to talk about it and his lack of communication has taken its expected toll on the business, so I’m informing you here. Please forward to me a pic of whatever you need, as I have some Hemis of my own and may have the parts you need

    Wahooo! I'm glad it's working out. This is inspiring me to start mine.
  4. Ferrari Unicorno

    The window banner and the unicorn in the back...Bahahahaha! This is why models are fun...Awesome job, man.
  5. Lamborghini veneno

    Incredible job with the CF! Well, incredible job on the whole thing.
  6. Thanks everybody. In retrospect I'd leave out medical-tape upholstery that looks like a bath mat up close...and fill the holes in the uprights for the cage, near the B-pillars...but I guess that's what they call learning
  7. Porsche&Lotus Combo Build

    You used the stock 964 wheels...and for some reason it still looks awesome...because you're Jon. Same with the Esprit. Any fitment issues with that one?
  8. Porsche 911 Targa

    Hmmm...which RS was too wide, the '74? I haven't built my '73 yet. Interestingly, 2014's re-release of the '73 comes with not only your choice of rear trailing arms, but also with a full early 930 (non-IC) turbo motor. They're like $17-$25 from numerous Japanese eBay sellers...I just haven't gotten around to hoarding them for their parts yet. If I buy a few more I'll let you know, and you can jump in the deal for cheap shipping. Good luck, and let us know how the test-fits turn out!
  9. Thanks! Mike Newport gets the credit for the one-off trim (and for drilling out the center, given that none was marked when I got them!) Thanks! Thanks! It started out as a "Singer-inspired build" and got outta hand. Thanks! It's my favorite too. I'd have every car in Mica Blue if I had a choice lol. Thanks JC! Thanks! Thanks!

    This is really well-done; that L24 engine bay looks exactly like the 1:1s I looked at before the car in my avatar started living in the garage space. How did you do the windshield?
  11. Tamiya Porsche 930 mashup

    I just noticed, the interior pics aren't showing up. That's odd; here they are. I'll reup all pics to cloud hosting manana. Right now I'm stuck at work, and with a firewall that blocks access to them. I need to do something more interesting with the package shelf, and possible add a half-cage with seatbelts. The 959 seats have been reworked a bit to set at a different angle. I know the steering wheel would be more "tasteful" with a silver or black center. That's why it's blue . Intentionally out of my comfort zone.
  12. Tamiya Porsche 930 mashup

    Thanks! I leaned a little too hard on the clear-blue and came out with lights that look a little ricey, but they're part of it now. Thanks! I'm guessing it's because those wheels are 18s, which are a little big for a 930. I'm considering replacing them with 17" Fifteen52 Outlaws and saving those (Aoshima Koenigs, made in 1:1 by O.Z.) for an actual RWB build. Thanks! Thanks! It's one of those embarrassing metal-axles kits, so I figured I may as well make the most of it lol.
  13. I have four Revell BMW Nazcas, and all four had "melted" P-Zeroes. Not that I'd have used that junk anyway, but still...whatever substrate was involved in making the tires, it separated and worked its way across the glass pieces, requiring a dip in the rubbing alcohol. Fujimi's have dry-rotted on me, but only those I received in a trade from the Philippines. They were very old. The only Tamiya tires that have deteriorated on me came from a kit made in 1975, which lived in a wet basement before I rescued it in 2009
  14. Beemax Volvo 240T Gr. A

    This. Although I'm guessing hipsters have little bearing on mainstream model companies-- even when they're Aoshima. The beard-product-and-skinny-jeans crowd is busy slambering MKII Volkswagens, making roof-racks and faking rust. For me this will be a track-day street car, same as the e30s
