      Urgent Maintenance   07/18/2018

      I will be taking the board offline some time this evening to solve an urgent server issue. Don't have an estimated duration, but it shouldn't take too long. Sorry for the short notice, but we're in a bind here.

Hello from a Canadian traveling in Florida

Recommended Posts

Tim here. I’m a fairly recent convert to scale car modelling. I’ve mainly built armour and aircraft kits and a few ships. That changed about two months ago when I saw Tamiya’s 1/20 Honda RA 272 kit. Cars of that era are the dream cars of my youth, when F1 got lots of tv coverage in the 12 channel universe.

I built the Honda kit and I was hooked. Currently, I’m waiting for the USPS to arrive with an Olsonite Eagle kit from Texas via eBay. I came to this forum because of a stunning build by “ismaelg” that turned up on Google. The man clearly has talent! I’ve read that this kit is a little tricky and fragile so any and all references will be invaluable. Except for adding some wiring and plumbing, it’ll be out of the box. While I won’t even attempt ismael’s ideas, I will be inspired by his patient craftsmanship.

Glad to be here.

Tim

Welcome Tim, and I think you'll find building scale model motor cars more interesting than building aircraft, ships or military stuff, although to be fair ... each to their own in this free world.
