MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. That is the only acceptable one at this point 😄...............IMO of course.
  2. They are here, all the big online retailers I think have finally have their stock now, Tamiya hasnt released the entire line yet either. They are great paints, Ive been using them for a few years now, they air brush very nicely. https://www.megahobby.com/products/tamiya-lacquer-paint-lp-colors-10ml-1-3-oz-bottles.html
  3. You can self import them from sellers on Ebay.
  4. And the 2nd version is coming, Taxi, it will have a male driving figure. Looks it will be out next month in SK, Nov for Japan.
  5. Recent reissue of the LCBJ44 kit from Italeri with the hard/soft top options, I built it with the hard top , paint is Toyota Cement Grey from Scalefinishes.
  6. Revell paints , they have a aqua line, maybe give those a try if you want water based.
  7. Indeed Chuck, new Hasegawa kits are very good, sometimes they get a little over complicate on some things( but is done for various versions), but just like Tamiya, throw the glue n paint in the box and out comes a completed kit.
  8. The point is, they are production street cars that can do 0-60 in 2 seconds, the Tesla was only one that needed the track prep , and Tesla demands, so gets the old "disclaimer", I just included it to show that EV's can do 0-60 IN UNDER 2 seconds, I think the normal 0-60 time is 2.something All these cars have launch controls that don't allow the tires to "burn rubber", and that is the only way you can achieve these quick 0-60 times.
  9. Revells VW T2 Bus kit from the Easy Click System, I tried to build it in the spirit of the kit, I limited myself very little research and pretty much just used the colors listed in the instructions, so I left a lot on the table and I am ok with that. Tamiya TS-12 was used over the bare plastic. I have very little negative things to say, I had fun building this kit, I liked how they did the windows( mounting tabs, snap into place) but a few didnt want to fit, the side door and rear hatch, took a bit of time to get them in place. Not a full snap kit, some parts need need glue, or could use glue as the fit wasnt tight. I broke both side view mirrors, I think the mounting holes were a tad to small. looking forward to the camping version coming soon, overall, Revell has done a great job with this series, looking forward to seeing where they go with it.
  10. It is factually possible for a car to do naught to 60 in 2 seconds, the Ferrari Ferrari SF90 Stradale did it when Car&Driver tested it just recently ,the 2022 Tesla Model S Plaid did naught to 60 in 1.98 second( under track prepped conditions) , so its very possible for this new EV to hit in 2 flat. https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a37066187/2021-ferrari-sf90-stradale-60-mph-acceleration/ https://www.motortrend.com/reviews/2022-tesla-model-s-plaid-first-test-review/
  11. Its possible I misunderstood you, my mistake.
