    New and improved! As the late George Carlin pointed out it's either new or it's improved. Can't be both. And that implies that we;ve been consuming old and inferior products previously.
  2. Modlguy added a post in a topic Revell's old "Dream Car Turbine" engine; What IS it ??   

    If I recall correctly, several years ago at one of the GSL's the late great Bob Paeth mentioned that they were just hip-shooting when they designed that tool. Not that it was just made up from whole cloth but some of the parts were thrown on because they looked right but weren't necessarily "real". Now, he may have just been just playing around with us at the time but I think that engine might have been a bit of a what-if since there wasn't much technology back then.

    Yes, favorite of them all. And I think the color works well.

    Wow, Al. That's terrific.

    Good Catch, Tom. Just don't leave it in Atlanta. By the way, I'm bringing my primer project in a Swiffer box too. I'll put a bow on it so we don't mix them up.

    Halfway point for NNL East
    Tom Geiger has recently posted about this. The website is up. If you haven't gotten your decals yet you can get a set through the link below at the "email us" tab. There will be a cool logo premium for all who display a model. Keep in mind that last year's T-shirt was a sell-out. The 2016 shirt will be equally awesome. The art isn't ready to be posted yet but will be up on the site before the show. Hotel information is on the site as well. And don't forget NNL Eats on Friday night. See you April 16 for the 30th. anniversary celebration of the Big Show.

    Nice looking builds, Bill. What part of Jersey are you in? I'm in Mercer County and work in Burlington. If you have the chance definitely go to the LIARS contest. Some of the best modelers in the country attend.

    Official Tri-State Scale Model Car Club 30th. Anniversary
    Today at our meeting Founding Member Bob Gill advised us that today is the 30th. anniversary date of the Tri-State club. I was not there at the beginning but have been privileged to be a member for some twenty-three years. It has been my pleasure to be part of the friendship and camaraderie of the wonderful group of men and women that make up this dedicated band of modelers. The club has been active in promoting shows through the Grow The Hobby Fund, and has supported the International Model Car Builders' Museum for many years. It also puts on NNL East every Spring, the world's biggest car model show and aftermarket swap meet. Congratulations to everyone on this significant milestone.

    Jaguar Rear End
    Does anyone know of an aftermarket Jag rear end for hot rod applications? I know there are kits like the Li'l John Butera rods that have them but I was wondering if they could be sourced on their own.  Thanks.

    I agree. Nice color scheme. Looking forward to seeing it in person. Funny, I have not been able to find this kit locally yet.

    Happy birthday, Tom. NNL East is thirty, so that makes you what, 45?

    It's another great addition to your preserved collection, Tom. Someday you need to bring that set out to GSL for everyone to see. And of course set it up at NNL East as a separate display.
