    Trade feeler
    I have the 1/24 scale Protar Ferrari 126  C2 Formula 1 car, famously driven by Gilles Villeneuve...
    The kit is mostly assembled (could perhaps be taken apart some more than it is on the pic below), but 100% percent complete and unpainted, with a pristine, original decal sheet.


    Since I'll never finish it, as I'm not interested in F1 cars (it was part of a scrapheap lot I bought), I'd trade it for pretty much anything road-going and American in scales 1/24 or 1/25... Of course, something in similar condition. I'd like to get a "project" kit, so certain interchangeable parts such as wheels etc. can be missing, and it may be partially assembled/painted...
    I'd prefer to trade without original boxes so as to save on shipping costs across the pond, but this is negotiable
    If you are interested, let me know what you might have to trade.
    Thanks.

    There are several versions of this, with different decals/wheels available... This one, white "Bosch" car, red "Dekra" car and orange "Jagermeister"  car... They are 90's kits and fairly sought after, but I think they get reissued every once in a while... If I'm not mistaken, the red car was available again a couple of years ago... Regardless, it is a fairly valuable/rare kit, I would say

    A few more cool ones...

    Oasis: Be Here Now



    The Chemical Brothers: Exit Planet Dust


    Nickelback: All The Right Reasons

    One of my favorite driving bands - Fu Manchu... A lot of their music is dedicated to cars/driving, and most of their albums have some kind of road-going vehicle on the cover...

    Great build of a beautiful car!
    BTW, RoG also boxed this one a while back, including all of the Ferrari emblems

    Finally, a MkI Escort! The E30 M3 looks interesting also...

  8. PowerPlant added a post in a topic Great Traders List   

    Just completed a great trade with Chris Sobak, aka Mooneyzs...
    And I have to say, not only did he send me more than I had originally asked for, but his package arrived at my end in record time, a couple of weeks ago, while mine took a whopping 35 days, until today, to reach him, which really is unusually long, so much so I started panicking that something has gone wrong in transit, but he never lost his patience and trust!
    Thanks once again, Chris, you truly are a great trader in every sense possible!

    Matt, I sent you a PM and I see you've read it two days ago, but no response... Do you want the parts, or not?
  10. PowerPlant added a post in a topic Hit songs that are actually covers (that nobody knows are covers)   

    But never mind Cash and Reznor... I bet everyone thinks Sinatra's "Strangers in the Night" is one of his greatest original hits, right?
    Incorrect!
    Although there is some dispute, the original was composed in 1965 as an instrumental-only film score by German composer Bert Kaempfert, and first performed in 1966 by Croatian singer Ivo Robić as "Stranci u noći" in the Croatian language, and as "Fremde in der Nacht" in German, while Sinatra bought the rights to cover the song only a couple of months later, turning it into a huge international hit

    I did not know this, but Cash's version is infinitely better, in my opinion

    One I was really surprised by... Johnny Cash's "Hurt" is originally a song written by Trent Reznor and performed by the Nine Inch Nails...

    I have a LRW parts kit... I believe the glass is complete, and there is also some chrome, but I have to check what exactly... I'll PM you with details after I check later

    EDIT: So, I've checked the basement and, unfortunately, I cannot find the bumpers... I suspect they were never there as It was a parts kit when I got it...
    I do, however, have a complete/intact clear sprue - with windshield, rear glass, headlights, rear lights and indicators, which you are welcome to if you like
    PM-ing you for info.



  14. PowerPlant added a post in a topic Tamiya Mercedes 300SL Announced, new pics added to OP   

    I meant no offense, and if I came across rude in any way, please forgive me... I was merely stating my opinion that, in comparison with some other companies, Studio27 PE sets are usually way overpriced for what they have to offer... For example, I recently purchased Hobby Design sets for the Revell Uhlenhaut Coupe - a much rougher, less detailed kit than the Tamiya 300SL, and the new SLS... Both sets feature two extensive PE sheets each, at almost half the price of most Studio27 offerings, including this one.
    Again, this is just my two-cents - as they say, but judging by the sold-out status on HLJ after just one day on offer, many people disagree with me...
