      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Most people seem to have the same problem with this kit
    Thanks for checking, though...
    Still looking!

    Amazing! I like how you scratchbuilt the bench seat from the kit's bucket seats
    Also, I'm curious how you did the dashboard instruments? Decals or paint? It looks great!

    I'd have to check, but I'm pretty sure I have one somewhere... Let me know if nobody else can help

    Thanks for the replies
    I have the orange car... I think there are some differences between two cars in terms of body kit, but the roofline should be the same targa mold

    Not sure if it's available with English subtitles... I'll let you know if I find it
     
  9. PowerPlant added a post in a topic What is your favorite car chase scene in a movie   

    I couldn't find a trailer with English subs, but no matter... This is a Serbian film called "The Belgrade Phantom", and it's based on true events dating from late summer of 1979, when a bored young man stole a white Porsche 911, belonging to a famous tennis player - one of few such cars in socialist Yugoslavia at the time, only to appear on the streets late at night and taunt the police with his driving... He even started announcing his appearances, anonymously calling them in over the radio, soon becoming a hero among masses who nicknamed him the "Phantom" and started gathering on the sidewalks to cheer him on during his "performances"... Needless to say, he wasn't quite as popular with the authorities, and the police, which seemed largely helpless in even slowing him down, let alone catching him in their patrol cars, had to come up with something fast, before president Tito returned from his visit to Cuba and found this "rebel" mocking his entire regime

    This is a famous, short "cinema-verite" film by French Director Claude Lelouch, it's full title is C'etait un rendez-vous... It was in fact filmed using a Mercedes 450 SEL 6.9, with the sound of the director's Ferrari 275 GTB added later... There's good info on Wikipedia:

    And here's the video itself:

    First "snowed-in" movie that comes to my mind, apart from obviously The Shining and Fargo, is definitely Misery
    Then The Thing, if you're into a bit of sci-fi, or A Simple Plan, which is not strictly a "snowed-in" movie but definitely is very snowy - kinda like Fargo
    More recently, there was Tarantino's Hateful Eight... Not my favorite movie ever, but definitely quite a "snowed-in" mood to it...
    As for a comedy... I say Groundhog Day.

    I also have some stuff from the F&F Toyota Supra, including seats with aftermarket seatbelts, wheels/tires, rear wing, NOS tanks and amplifiers, which I will throw into the deal with the Eclipse...

    AMT Mitsubishi Eclipse F&F
    This is another kit I got as part of a bulk buy, but it just doesn't float my boat.. The kit is complete (apart from NOS tank and fire extinguisher)  but most parts are off sprues, the body and chassis are painted/decaled (rather nicely), the engine is assembled and painted... Trading this as a project kit... The car can easily be finished or stripped/repainted.
    What you see on the pics is what you get... Make me an offer for it... I like American muscle cars, hot rods and pickups, similar state accepted

    Fujimi Porsche 911 GT3R

    Got this as part of a bulk buy, but probably won't ever build it... Previous owner painted the body red and used up some of the decals, plus an aftermarket carbon fiber decal on hood - fairly nicely done, as seen on 2nd pic. The kit is otherwise brand new and unstarted, it can easily be either finished or stripped/redone.
    I will trade it for any one of the following...
    REVELL: 30 Ford Coupe, 37 Ford (California Wheels), 48 Ford, 58 Thunderbird, 40 Ford pickup (Trucks), 50 Ford pickup (Trucks), 53 Chevy Bel Air (lowrider), 58 Impala, 65 Chevy Stepside, 67 Camaro (SS or RS/Nickey), 59 Caddy...
    AMT: 49 Ford, 51 Chevy Bel Air, 53 Ford pickup...
    Possibly something else along these lines... Let me know
    Thanks,
    MATIJA

    There are many examples, but "truck" and "lorry" are obvious ones I reckon
