  1. NEW Round2 AMT 2018

    There is absolutely nothing new about Revell Germany reboxing Revell US product...and because of that, if and when that box ends up in the US it's a lot more expensive.
  2. Splash Paints LLC Order

    Once my ordering issue was resolved on Wednesday I ordered 5 jars of paint. They were delivered yesterday (Saturday). That is fast service from Oregon to Georgia! Can't wait to try them!
  3. Ladies and Gentlemen: My C7R: 2016 Daytona winner

    That was well worth the wait and the effort! Bravo!
  4. C 1 model

    Order direct. Shipping is fast and reasonable.
  5. C 1 model

    No worries; I've known him since 2002 and the products, quality and communication are excellent. I've enjoyed building the models and I've written several articles over the years, from his first days as Scale AutoStyle to his current C1 Models company he started. I bought 3 more transkits at the NNL East a few weeks ago. I've also ordered online, the transactions have all been smooth and shipping relatively swift and not very expensive.
  6. Shizuoka Hobby Show 2018

    Ah, Hasegawa finally decides to do platform-style interiors again.
  7. Corvair rampside

    Mine is almost entirely OOB. I did have a vintage set of wheels/tires in my parts box, so I haven't used the resin steel wheels included w/the resin kit. Somebody on FB I believe started down a rabbit hole, asking if this kit's chassis was based on the AMT '69 Corvair chassis, wanted to know if the '69 Corvair chassis would work "for more detail". Words were not nearly enough to convince them that the '69 Corvair chassis idea would create a cascade of issues requiring scratchbuilding, so I took these photos to compare. Use your own judgement...we're talking two different generations of Corvair chassis, different wheelbase, etc. I'm 1000% fine using the made-for-this-model resin chassis as everything fits precisely.
  8. So Cal NNL Presented by GREX, Sunday May 6th!!

    Our show (ACME Southern Nationals) dropped the NNL moniker a few years back. It still slips out occasionally but it hasn't been used on our flyers for 2-3 years now.
  9. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    What a novel concept!
  10. Ebbro Citroen DS 21

    This is the one I wanted in the first place...got the DS19 too, maybe time to build it to practice up on the fit of the doors/hood/etc. Rode a few times in a '72, what a spaceship...so smooth, comfortable, and quiet. The owner's only complaint was it was painfully slow, but it averaged 27-32 MPG which in the mid-70's was pretty stellar.
  11. Ebbro Citroen DS 21

    Get the DS19 kit that's already out to do that version, it's also less expensive (by maybe $20). A guy in Belgium already built one...pretty cool subject.
  12. Jaguar XK 120, Revell

    Drop dead gorgeous! Nice work.
  13. Fujimi EM-1 Porsche '85 Turbo

    If nobody trades it was just reissued: https://hlj.com/product/FUJ12659
  14. Simpsonville SC

    It's Saturday the 19th, same time & place. I have had schedule conflicts for the past 5 or 6 years and again this year, but always enjoyed it when I did attend.
