    Here's  what I'm starting with, the box, parts already cleaned in Simple Green, sub-assemblies I'm gonna put in Simple Green, and what's left on the sprues. This is an older kit, and doesn't use poly cap bushings.

    Got these at a thrift store/boutique, all still sealed, roof on one of the blazers was crushed. They'e jammed in there tighter than that old jar of pickles game. Do you think $5 each was a good deal?

    I'm more of a poorskate. The most I've ever paid for a kit was $50-ish off eBay for something super rare, and vintage. The burn was the seller had something else from the same series I also wanted badly, but could afford only one.

    I shoulda took some pics, but I started on a vintage gluebomb. Well, a paint bomb. Its a vintage Gundam Kit from 1983. I got it at a thrift store a year or so ago. Someone painted most of the parts on the sprue with no apparent rhyme or reason. as far as I can tell, it's only missing a hose and the decals are probably shot. Oh, and there's no instructions, just to make it interesting.

    While I was at it, I secured another Trans-Am and built a second Racing Warrior. I took more liberties with this one. I swapped teh nose with a 69 Camaro and lifted it. The front end of the yellow car took forever, so I just made the front of this car built on the bumper. This was an eBay glue bomb, so its a total junkyard build.

    Here's the Death Race style Pantera. I reworked one of my old glue bombs. I originally built this Gunze Sangyo kit back in 1989. 




    It was a bad day for pictures. These are kinda blurred, but you should see what I deleted.

    Awesome work! I would also welcome G1 Transformers kits. Does Takara still make models? I know they sure wouldn't sub-license it to Bandai...
  8. Zarana-X added a post in a topic Revell vs. Aoshima Datsun 720, any reccomendations?   

    The Aoshima kit has wonky proportions, and is a re-issue of an old Araii or Imai kit, I think. (both companies are OOB and their molds sold off. I know Bandai got most of their sci-fi kits.)
    There is a detailed Revell (Monogram re-issue already on this board)
    As well as a YouTube review

    They selected 3 cars to run in the 24 Hours of LeMons. A Crown Vic, Golf, and a 720 Nissan. The 720 looked pretty nice, but the dropped it on the Golf. 
    I was relieved when the 240Z survived the Car for Life episode with only minor damage.

    I'd be down, I still have a bunch of mechs and starships. Got a couple of cars I'm in the middle of, though...

    Excellent job! The 411, and 412 were sold in the US, but they're nearly extinct. Haven't seen one in person in about 10 years.

    Nice job! looks like a good "what if" possibility, kinda like an MG
  13. Zarana-X added a post in a topic 1970 Toyota Corona 1600 sl ( from otaki)   

    Holy heck, that's an ancient kit! Even says Toyopet on the license plate. You're doing good work so far.

    Looks great. I remember watching this movie when I was probably too young to be watching it.
