  3. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    OK........Revell USA is gone, snuffed it, dead and buried. Only expensive imports from now on.
  4. hasegawa vs tamiya

    Some of Hasegawa's kits have very poor or non existent interior details - I have recently completed their VW pick-up and panel van and there are no interior panels at all. Reviews here show poor interiors in the new BMW's too.
  5. Hasegawa is asking what kits you would like to have in future

    There are lots of great suggestions listed here for new kits. Hasegawa has recently given us some great subjects that have not available in kit form - the BMW 2002 series for example. I would have considered adding them to my stash but for the inexcusable representation of the interiors. I dont even mind that they are curbside, but I refuse to purchase them in their current form and especially for the prices asked. So my point here is that no matter the subjects they choose they have to do a lot better before I consider adding any of their newer kits to my already overflowing basement. How about a re-tooling upgrade of your interiors Mr Hasegawa?
  6. Thanks Gil, I like the McLaren FI and I have looked at the reviews on-line and was not sure about the Fujimi kits however after seeing your build I wont be so put off buying one. Your build is great and the Gulf Racing colour scheme looks awesome too. I am happy with a curbside and the white decals look opaque enough over the dark base colour. I might have to try stretched sprue for the antenna as there aren't many cats in our neighborhood........
  7. That looks really nice. I have read that the Aoshima McLarens were way better than the Fujimi kits, but I cant see anything wrong with that ! How was the build? did you add anything extra? (apart from the harness and decals) Great colour scheme too.
  8. 2019 Silverado

    I don't mind the looks - better than the current Fords. Hopefully its built better than my 2010 GMC 2500 which has the build quality of a Lada (Russian built Fiat)
  9. Now THAT is a beautiful car. I wonder if there will be a customer version. Mr Tamiya , Sir, please can we have one!
  10. What's In The Box, BMW 2002 tii

    Well I'm really disappointed - the interior is quite visible through the large windows and the total lack of detail kills it for me. Come on Hasegawa you should know better.
  11. Next Tamiya 1/24 car is...

    Yikes that's ugly.......
  12. Tribute to a friend

  13. Tribute to a friend

    Four years ago our local club lost Jim Thomas, a great modeller and a good friend, to a brain tumor. He was a talented builder who would always share his techniques and encourage you in whatever you were building. His main interest were military subjects, however he built a wide variety of other subjects too. There were several un-finished projects on his bench, two of which I was given to complete, a P-47 and this Cobra. This Monogram Cobra needed only final assembly. Jim had all the painting and detailing done, all that was left was to join the main components. I would like to share his work with you.
  14. Photobucket Problems

    So if I am understanding this correctly I should be able to upload a photo directly from my PC without needing a third party host site? Without limits or restrictions? testing:... .
