  1. Found dead from an apparent suicide by hanging in his hotel room in Strasbourg, France... Way too many depression related celebrity suicides lately, and mostly people whose work I like Bourdain was about the only celebrity chef I ever paid any attention to...

  3. 1/24 Yugo or Fiat 127 kit by chance?

    And, since we're talkin' Yugo's, I'll just leave this here... Nice car, funny video
  4. 1/24 Yugo or Fiat 127 kit by chance?

    I WISH there was a 1/25 or 1/24 scale plastic kit of a Yugo out there... I mean, honestly, it's a terrible car, and it was ridiculed all over former Yugoslavia just as it was in America (my family had a grand total of three back in the late 80's and early 90's), but as the video Brian posted demonstrates, they can be fun after undergoing some home-engineering... BTW, the video was shot in Croatia, during a popular hill-climb event in Buzet, Istria... Lots of private garage-built cars like that can be seen at the event, and they do go... The one above has a Fiat Bravo HGT engine... This is a video from the same event, a few years before, and different Yugo car... This one with a 900 ccm Kawasaki motorcycle engine... Hence, Yugosaki
  5. Engine in Monogram 29 Ford Roadster Pickup

    Thanks for the reply, but which engine specifically... I would like to find some reference pics, but haven't found anything that looks similar to my eye.
  6. As the title says, I am curious which exact engine is in this kit... Instructions say simply "late model Olds mill", but googling didn't bring up results, and I have read somewhere it might in fact be a Cadillac engine... Can anyone clear this up? Thanks in advance!
  7. Positives to come from the Revell Deal?

    Thank you for your reply, but I still don't see the logic of it... As far as I know, the original licensing issue was mainly to do with the German branch of Revell, not the US one, anyway... Ferrari obviously wants too much money, and Revell cannot or doesn't want to pay it. I just don't see how this situation would change Revell's financial ability, as you say, especially now that they have spent a lot of money on the merger... But here's hoping that I am wrong, and you are right, and that we will see the SWB and other Ferrari kits from Revell in the foreseeable future
  8. AMG Mercedes Benz 300SEL 6.8 "Red Pig"

    Thank you! Based on this info, I was able to find the following site, so I'm sharing it here for anyone else interested: https://www.actions-general.top/mercedes-300-sel-68-amg-rote-sau-124-resin-p-14773.html
  9. Positives to come from the Revell Deal?

    Yeah, awesome it would be, but unfortunately I do not see how this turn of events could positively influence Ferrari licensing which Revell no longer has...
  10. Favorite police procedural/crime dramas

    If you haven't yet, check out the Netflix show Mindhunter, directed by David Fincher... It's about how FBI developed profiling and criminal science in investigating murder cases, especially serial killers.
  11. AMG Mercedes Benz 300SEL 6.8 "Red Pig"

    Is it a secret who makes this resin kit, where and how you got it?
  12. 1960 Ford Starliner

    While the Starliner may not be a car I would normally pay much attention to, your build definitely makes it stand out and certainly sparks my interest... Perfect wheels and stance!
  13. AMG Mercedes Benz 300SEL 6.8 "Red Pig"

    I love this car, but wasn't aware there is a resin kit available! Who makes it, where can one get it and does it also come with decals? Either way, definitely looking forward to seeing progress on this!
  14. Choosing a glue bomb..

    I often buy glue bombs, but this is usually only to strip them off useable parts such as wheels, engines etc... If they are totally interesting to me, unpainted, not quite caked in glue and mostly complete, I might consider finishing them, so to speak... But to tackle fully restoring a glue bomb with heavy paint and glue, it really would have to be a rare kit, unlikely to ever be reissued, along the lines of a Jo-Han or something similar
