      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

    Not just a waste of vintage tin. Also rumblings of people's pride and joy being stolen to order for such events.

    Beautiful work. I have the Bel Air convertible, would it be possible to do this with that kit or do I need the full roof version fleetline like you used?

    Hiya, is this shell available, and if so, where from?
  4. roym added a post in a topic MPC 79 FirebirdT/A   

    I just got it knowing it's mostly a dog of a kit having built the AMT 78 issue from a few years back. Decals are great and it fills a gap in the collection. My biggest gripe, actually my only gripe knowing the history of the moulds, is that they didn't see fit to tool up a usable set of door mirrors. Bad fit I can forgive, and work around. Chrome headlamps I can forgive. Dodgy tyres I can forgive.
    No door mirrors? Bah.......

    Modern Ford V-6 3.7L engine; available anywhere?
    As in current and previous Mustangs? Resin or kit supplied? I did see this but it doesn't look right.

    Mustang steering wheel
    Hi lads,
    Looking for a steering wheel from a fox body Mustang, non-airbag type. Should be part no 6 in the Monogram/Revell 92 convertible, or Revell Convertible Lowrider. May also be in an old MPC or AMT kit. Trashed kit parts will do.
    Pic attached for reference. Cash/paypal waiting. 
     
    Please also see my other post for wheels.
    Thanks,
    Roy

  8. roym added a post in a topic Anyone else here excited for America's 2016 Formula One team???   

    Hope they do well.
    F1 needs help right now.
    Been an F1 fan as long as I can remember, and it says something about the sport that the most interesting character- driver wise, for me anyway- is a Finnish Vodka enthusiast known as the Iceman, famous for his lack of emotion with the press (and not for the cubes of frozen water in his Beverage). Still think Alonso is the most gifted and intelligent driver in the field. Wish Hamilton would go back to whatever hood he thinks he came from.
    Racing needs to be racing, not processions. Amazing to think that in this modern era LeMans can produce a closer finish (14 odd seconds between different makes of cars) after 24 hours racing than F1 can after 24 minutes.

    1/24 Revell (ex ESCI) Ford Escort Mk2 Rally.
    So far the only kit of the Mk2, it's accuracy issues are well known. Lucky for me this was a commission build of a current rally car that shares features of the kit which cause problems if you are doing one of the original factory units. (i.e. the height of the rear arches). Mostly oob, I just sanded the front arches to better represent the 1:1 and converted it to RHD. I also modified the sit by having the rear axle mounted out of position compared to ESCI's intentions, looks better now. Also added mud flaps, Had a nightmare printing my own decals, not happy with them. Just gone off to the new owner, hope they like it.

  14. roym added a post in a topic Some more Round2 surprizes!   

    Am I missing something here? It looks like the Round 2 website hasn't been updated for a good while. As even the 79 Trans Am isn't on it I'm wondering what else is available that I'm missing out on...
