  1. I thought this was going to be about the SR-71 hitting Mach 3.56. But wow, an rc glider going as fast as a jet airliner? That’s pretty cool, too.
  2. 1/43. It’s kinda small. I mean the scale is small, but I thought this jet LSR would be a huge beast.
  3. Check eBay for bargains. I have seen builtup 1/16 rc tanks go for great prices. I got a King Tiger that way. Apparently, Heng Long rc tanks are fairly detailed. A guy in Germany makes parts to add detail, even offering a Leopard 2A4 turret to backdate their 2A6. That company also sells used and demo tanks on eBay for crazy low prices. I’ve seen them listed for $69. I got a Leopard 2A6 minus rc gear and missing track on one side for $49 plus shipping. You get can a full set of replacement track for $14 plus shipping. The tank arrived today. I’ll check it out when I get home.
  4. I just ordered the Ford Nucleon, ‘57 Buick wagon and ‘77-‘79 Lincoln Mk V. I’ll post pics when they show up.
  5. Is that the other Asian kit of a Sonic-1? Was that a real car?
  6. Has anyone here built it? It’s that the kit even exists, but I saw a picture of one built up and it looks like the air intake is really out of shape. Was it just a bad angle? How is the rest of the kit? Thanks. Lee
  7. Mark V Lincoln? Wow! I love that car! Gotta get one of those and that Buick wagon.
  8. Tamiya made a 1/12 rc van called Vanessa’s Lunchbox. It was a late ‘70s/early ‘80s Dodge, I believe. The body is styrene, and thick enough to work on like a regular plastic model. You can find the bodies on eBay. No need to buy an rc van and use only the body. You’ll need to come up a chassis and interior, but you have a great start for a cool van model.
  9. The picture is in my home computer, which is not up and running. The car is blue with orange flames, view is from above. It has a big V-8 with dragster zoomies . If this rings a bell, can you post a link or the drawing? Thanks. Lee
  10. Not a whole meal, but food for a friend recovering from surgery; Spanakopita with Tzatziki for dipping and Baklava for dessert. I love this stuff. I hope they do, too.
  11. Back up for trade. Still have all three. The Revell ‘37 is not my cup of tea.
  12. Is the fully enclosed body an option with small diameter wheels inside or do they mean fully enclosed, except the front wheels?
