    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

  1. PowerPlant added a post in a topic Esci/Revell Mercedes 500 SLC   

    Thanks for the input guys!
    I ended up buying the kit for 12 euros including shipping, which is not bad - despite the used condition, considering it's out of production and getting somewhat harder to find at a reasonable price...
    Either way, it's as close to the Pagoda as it gets in kit form so I'm pretty excited about it
    Now here's to hoping the "glass" isn't quite superglued to the body...

    Indeed... Perhaps I worded my opinion a bit clumsily... My point was, I think he was given way too much publicity, not to say "importance" over the years by the media. He should have been forgotten a long time ago.

    I just find it fascinating how he was portrayed by the media as one of the most notorious mass murderers in history without actually having murdered anyone personally...
    It seems almost as if he was given way too much publicity by the media who, intentionally or not, turned him into some sort of morbid celebrity, just because of who "his" victims were.
    Either way, good riddance, long overdue if you ask me.

    Thanks for the pics JC!
    It looks like a nice kit

    Thanks for the replies! 
    I wonder why they did that, considering they labelled the rally versions properly
    Either way, I never paid much attention to Esci before, because their only kit I have is the Ferrari 250 SWB with those atrocious body proportions, which I will probably get rid of as soon as I find the Italeri kit... So I just figured they didn't make good models at all, but I hope the funny body isn't a problem with this kit because I really like it, as well as some of their other kits I've only just seen for the first time recently. Also, I wonder how complicated it might be to cut the hood out since it opens with the grille attached to it, as not much can be found in terms of built-up pics online... Another interesting thing about this kit, in my opinion, is the fact it includes licence plates and markings for South Africa! I've never seen that before...

    Esci/Revell Mercedes 500 SLC
    Hi everyone! I'm looking to buy the mentioned kit in condition seen on pic... I like the car, however, I don't know much about the kit itself... What I do know is it's long out of production and somewhat rare... Can anyone tell me more? Specifically, does it seem complete from the pic? Also, I see it has engine detail, but the hood seems molded shut... Any insight regarding this? And from the box art it seems more like a 450, not 500... Anyone know for sure? Thanks

    I'd be ok with never getting another kit when I find these two...

    Definitely looks real! WOW
  10. PowerPlant added a post in a topic Masterkit Models of Brasil?   

    As a matter of fact, that is the very ad I was referring to
    In case you're wondering, I lived in Holland for many years and still have an address there, so I shop on Marktplaats quite a bit.
    It's a great place. One can find nice kits for a good price... Not in this case, it seems, however
    Thanks for the replies everyone!

    Masterkit Models of Brasil?
    Has anyone ever come across these? I never heard of Masterkit Models before (a Brasilian company, apparently, which is evident from the Portuguese writing on the boxes)... I just came across the Rolls Royce for sale, but the seller wants 40 euros for it and I'm not sure what to make of it... Is it a Minicraft/Entex rebox or something completely different? How about the other two? I have the Italeri Mercedes, which is a great kit, so not too excited about that one, but that Triumph sure is interesting... They are the only car kits in 1/24 scale I could find (there are also planes and other kits out there), so any info on these would be appreciated, even though they really do smell like Entex... Thanks in advance

    I could use that targa roof for the Supra if nobody else needs it!
