ismaelg Posted March 2 Share Posted March 2 Hello, Definition of Pyromania: Impulse control disorder in which individuals repeatedly fail to resist impulses to deliberately start fires.ALTERNATE DEFINITION: A modeler who likes Pyro Models I fall in this alternate category. I posted elsewhere I recently acquired a few 1/32 scale Pyro models of classic and brass era cars. I was pleasantly surprised to find the kits (I opened them all for inspection) are far better than I anticipated. Crisp and beautiful moldings, excellent details, clear parts, some have brass colored plated parts that have survived the test of time and even engines are included. And these are all 1/32 scale. The only "drawback" if you will, is that some are molded in strong colored plastic like green or purple. I chose the 1915 Ford Model T Coupelet as the first one to build. Or at least to start. This one is mostly white plastic. As many of you know, I am a factory stock guy. I'm not really into early hot rods. So no, I'm not dropping a Corvette 427 triple carb big block engine in it. This kit is from 1967. To put it in perspective, I was born 3 years later, my father (22 at the time) was recovering from serious wounds in Vietnam (and receiving his Purple Heart) and Lyndon B. Johnson was the President of the United States. I thought the multipiece body (5 parts) was going to be a hassle, but Tamiya precision came to mind. These are just "test fitted" with a tiny drop of glue on each part. Here it is just placed on top of the chassis. No fitting has been done other than cutting the parts from the sprue. The fit is excellent! So yeah, my project hopping syndrome is in high gear... Any Model T experts here? I'm sure I'll run into tons of questions. Thanks, Ismael 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
