    If it's T-section styrene, Raboesch does make 2mm x 2mm. It was sold in the US briefly. A hobby shop in Austin still has a display, but most of the stock is gone. I just stopped by there.  They do have a 2mm x 2mm I-section. Maybe you could slice off a bit for a T. Either way, 2x2 is made, it just might take some searching. Could be easy on eBay from Europe.

    If you mean styrene strip with a "T" cross-section, look for Raboesch brand. They all kinds of profiles that Evergreen and Plastruct do not have.

    Is there a way for each forum to show number of threads, rather than number of posts?  
  4. LDO added a post in a topic What's your next model purchase?   

    Revell's upcoming '29 roadster or Takom's new 1/35 scale FlaK 40 128mm twin anti-aircraft gun. 
  5. LDO added a post in a topic Okay, Revell gave us the '32 Ford and is now readying to get their '29 Ford roadster & siblings to market, but what is the next Hot Rod model to do?   

     There are other resin T roadster bodies out there. Perry's Resin lists one. There's also one with stock hood and grille. Check here for a thread about the need for a '26/'27 Tee roadster ("Tee" spelled out. Not just the letter). But yeah, I would also love to see a kit of that. In the other thread, my suggestion was for a T roadster body on the upcoming Model A chassis, with engine choices from Revell/Monogram Midget racers; a Ford V8-60 and/or Offenhauser 4-cylinder.

    Awww. I forgot. Saying that other people's ideas are boring is only OK when you do it.

    Go tell a moderator.

    Wow. An injection molded Cadillac lead sled. I never woulda thunk it. Glad I voted for it.

    Yeah. When people ask for opinions, I give mine. I'm such a rebel.

    It's in reply to the thread title. Maybe I should have added "I hope not. I'd rather see..."

    I'd vote for a modified reissue of the Model A roadster, this time with a '27 T body. I have no doubt that would sell better than a wagon.

    PM your address and I'll send out the T body.

    Is this it?



    No idea. It was in a box of similar glue bombs from way back when. I went to the garage to look for it and thought I might have thrown it away. If you can use it, you can have it.

    There's one on eBay right now.

    Are there any twin-screw superchargers with inlet on top?
    Just curious. I think it would be cool to make a model of an "updated" Strosek twin supercharger setup from the '80s. Two roots blowers connected by a curved plenum, but it had injectors at the s/c inlets. Wondering if any superchargers are made today that can run dry, but have the intake on top, rather than at the back end.

    A Lysholm 3300 R may, but I'm not sure.
