Well those are all interesting and beautifully done models. Now.... I suppose that Missing Link '73 Chevelle isn't currently available but that would be something of a crown jewel in my collection.

I'm not sure if Kevin is still taking requests for them or not. He was selling them through e-mail, with names going on a waiting list and him contacting buyers as their place in line came up. Mine became available in late September, after joining the list in September 2018.

You've been busy!  Great variety, all a movie theme is interesting.  I like 2001 Space Odyssey, wood be a good slump buster.

That Renault is 1/24? I'll definitely have to grab one. ICM's Model Ts are beautiful.

It is, and they are. I added the windshield and solid roof, but otherwise it's built straight out of the box. No problems with flash, fit, parting seams, etc. I'm still trying to talk myself into getting their Benz Patent-Motorwagen, and this got me that much more convinced.

I have to start building my Ts, but I was absolutely floored at the quality of the moulding. When I was working in a hobby shop, the military guys LOVED ICM kits. Uniform excellence.

I wish they'd start doing those 1/35 Packards in 1/24 (or even better, 1/25). I'd buy one of those without a second thought.

I'd also like to see them start doing more cars, period.

Wow, such a variety and all of them very well done.

To my eye, the one that truly stands out from the rest is the Fiat 500. You did a great job with the weathering and damage.

Seconded! They have some great subjects, I'd love to see more of them in the bigger scale.

Cool builds! I am a sucker for that Chevelle! Need to get my TA inspired Chevelle done.

I love to see dedicated collections no matter what the theme is.  This really is an amazing body of work for one year's production They are all sharp as, but the little white Cobra is soooo purdy!

Cheers

Heck, I can't quit now - not until the stash is whittled down!

Lots of different and interesting builds there! My favourite has to be the Fiat from Lupin III, and the Galaxie from MIB3.

Dude, this is an impressive and expansive array of pop culture builds. You are the IMCDB of modellers.

Particularly loving the Galaxie, and Cobra, with its whitewalls and deeeeeeep wires.

I've heard good things about that black 3.0 stuff; it barely registers any light at all.

What a crazy grouping! I can see you never get bored!

I like the Chevelle and Fiat!

The video tutorials that are available were very helpful, if only to find out how this stuff likes to be prepped for different surfaces. I've got about four thin coats on this, and while I like it I may add a couple more - it does seem to get blacker with each successive coat.
