Not a subject I would normally be interested in, but it is a BMW and I do like the fender flairs and all. I'll be looking for one of these for sure.

Dam - curbsides again!  I said it before about the 2002tii and will again - this is definitely one kit that should have engine detail. 

Maybe there's hope. Scale Production did a resin transkit to provide complete underhood detail for the Belkits Ford Escort. Its amazing - full engine compartment, inner fenders, etc, with your choice of Ford BDA or Lotus Twin-cam.  I have already suggested they do one for the the BMW 2002.

Can't disagree with you.  Even if on the level of the Revell 3 series from the late 70's.

Sweet, remember a bunch of these back in the early 80's when I worked at a BMW dealer. Might have to save my lunch money for one of these!

Matija, if you can find a Revell US Spec E21 3 series kit, it has the right engine, and the one I have built from back in the day has an optional turbo, not sure if the all have them though.

How's tricks?

Does anyone put out a non-turbo version of the 2002 as a kit? You know, one with no stripes or wheel flares. One with bumpers.

If you read the first post, Jonathan referenced the 2002 tii version that is already out. I believe he's also shared photos of it under construction and finished.

That's exactly what I'm talking about. The model you posted the link to Tucker. That is sweet. I like the purity, the clean look, of those late 60's, early 70's BMWs.

Sorry about that. What is your name than?

Bob Downie. It's in my signature under every post. You have signatures turned off?

Signature lines don't show up if you're accessing the forum via a mobile device.

I figured that must be the case; I never view this forum on my phone.

99% of the time I'm viewing this site via my iPad. That may explain why I'm not see your signature?

To the left of each post is the info about the member who posted it.  This is what I see on the left side of Bob's posts:

There, on the last line is the name of the person.  You don't' see that either on your the iPad?

I can't speak to the iPad, but on my phone all I see is the avatar, the name of the person, "Members" (which is the group the person belongs to - as opposed Moderator or Administrator) and their post count.
