  1. Dyno Don Funny car coming next year 2018

    I saw the kit at my LHS last night. It looks really nice, but I will be holding off until I get rid of some kits. At $46.99 Canadian, it's a lot of money for a kit I may not get around to building for a long time.
  2. 24 Hours of Le Mans Build

    Both the cars look great. I didn't have the chance to build anything, but at least they showed the broadcast on Velocity Canada. Feels great to have endurance racing back on TV again!
  3. You NEED this book!

    I received my copy in the mail yesterday, and I have enjoyed all of the content. I do have one small problem with the book, though it is a common issue in modern publishing. The one beef I have with books these days are the number of typographical/content errors which slip past the copy editors (if there is still such a position). I keep finding words which have been changed by AutoCorrect (e.g. 'Grand Special' instead of 'Grant Special' for the JoHan '68 Javelin), or changed names ('Joe' Haenle). You would think that there would be plenty of English majors out there who can proof-read books, while waiting for their dream jobs as Starbucks baristas to become reality. End of sermon! Overall, Tim Boyd has written a great book which deserves to be on the shelves of all car modellers.
  4. 1986 Suziki GSXR 750 > is / was there one in scale

    It is a 1/12 kit by Fujimi. There seems to be a couple of different versions out there, so hopefully you can find one.
  5. 1986 Suziki GSXR 750 > is / was there one in scale

    I'm fairly certain I saw a 1/12 scale version recently. I can't remember if it was from Aoshima, Hasegawa, or Fujimi, but it was a model of an early Gixxer.
  6. Would YOU buy this kit if it was reissued ?

    I wouldn't mind having another XR-6 in my collection. It's a great source for a rodded Slant Six, if nothing else.
  7. PHR's Project "X" coming up in next Rodders Journal

    Cool! I've always thought that a history of Project X would be a neat subject, but I never thought someone would get around to actually writing it.
  8. Engine in Monogram 29 Ford Roadster Pickup

    It was a early Cadillac engine in the kit. The original version of the kit had the Cadillac script engraved on the valve covers.
  9. Old 1/75 LS Judy - classic plastic out of box

    LS did some nice kits back in the day, though I always found the 1/75 scale to be strange compared to the 'traditional' 1/72. I remember going into McCormick's back when I lived in the GTA, and was always surprised on how much older stock they always had.
  10. It may not be identical to the original, but it gets you fairly close. If you can find one of the old Monogram "Pro Street" editions (Camaro or Firebird) cheap, you have all the bits you need to backdate the kit.
  11. Contact info for Missing Link?

    Thanks for the e-mail reply off-board, Kevin. I look forward to seeing you at the show.
  12. 1974 Honda CB400F

    Looks really nice, though I wish they would make some of the twins instead of the small fours. If Aoshima would come out with a model of the CB350, I would definitely buy one (it would be a race to see which one is finished first; the model or the full-size bike).
  13. Contact info for Missing Link?

    Thanks again for the address.
  14. I am looking for the contact information for Missing Link resin. I know that there is a pop-up on their website, but I have never had luck in getting them to work. TIA
  15. Seventies Land Yachts?

    The AirTrax kits are quite nice to have, and include a lot of cars that you can't get anywhere else. They did vend at NNL East last year, but I haven't heard if they are returning for this year.
