  1. Mike Kucaba added a post in a topic Large scale Lambos/Ferraris   

    From experience here's how I rate ones I know about:
    !/16th Fujimi Porsche 959 is very good IMHO
    !/12th Mono/revell Testarossa is okay,but toylike. Could be worked into a nice piece with some Aftermarket. 
    !/16th Revell Camaro/firebird  Very toylike GREAT tires though.

    I used to do that when I lived in IILAnnoys, Here in AZ (Mesa) My screened in patio serves the same purpose

    I've been using a degreaser  that I get at a store named Smart & Final. $4.90 a gallon when you buy four. It works as good as SC and the same conditions apply. Use it warm.

    Would have to know if Oil  or diaphragm. I have a oil-less diaphragm and when it was struggling I removed the head and found some foreign material in it and cleaned out the cylinders and wiped them down with some silicone spray on a cloth. I think some debris from the plastic filter found it's way in. It was fine after this and still working today.

    WoW I think I'll take that resin '54 Merc I have and get started on this!

    If you like Plastic you could modify the Lindberg '53 Ford . Just chop the top, modify the rear quarters,scratch up a front bumper/grille and few dozen odds and ends. Just about the time you finish they'l announce a new issue.

    Don't know what your build is aiming for but there are 4-speed manual trans in the two Corvettes '57 & '63 . Possibly automatics in the '78 Corvette. There is also a trans in the 1/16th Mustang. This just a few of what's available in 1/16th. there are more I'm sure.
  12. Mike Kucaba added a post in a topic Any reviews of AMT 1965 Pontiac 2+2?   

    " I usually don't build for absolute accuracy, I just like to build. "

    Pretty much sums up me too.

    Ironically I had just started this model as a slump buster. I've added most of the custom parts with some modifications.
    After reading what a POS this kit is I guess I should have just throw it away.

    Some people really know how to kill a buzz!

    Way to go Greg!!
  14. Mike Kucaba added a post in a topic please stop it !   

    The other point is that if the model company wants to make it easier for some one to put a hole in he hood why go thru the bother of adding all the fine under hood structure.?

    "aside from the childish name-calling?"

    That could all be handled in 25 pages or less
