  1. Fair enough, I get the urge to restyle. Here's the car Exner was referencing, if you're looking for inspiration for paint.
  2. It could use some extra details to make it less toylike, though I really hope you resist the urge to "improve" the styling. The Exner quirks, both good and bad, are what make it interesting.
  3. Just so you know, the Print Screen button will let you take a snapshot of your screen, our if you hold the mouse over the pic and press the right button, you'll get a menu. Save Image As lets you save the image to your computer, and Copy Image Link lets you copy the image location so you can paste it into a post like this.
  4. I know, typing out whole words and sentences is pretty archaic, but I like it.
  5. I'm a big fan of using styrene to patch styrene whenever possible. Work some Evergreen rod of appropriate size into the seam with a generous amount of liquid cement, then let everything set thoroughly.

  7. I spent way too much time doodling the Astro I as a kid, so that would be my first choice.
  8. Space Ghost Jonny Quest Bugs Bunny, but that was more of a Saturday evening thing. The Herculoids
  9. It's always been. The model companies just get to spread the setup costs over a few thousand kits.
  10. The AMT '29 A and the Revell '31 have what looks like a Riley OHV head.
  11. This is a very good point right here, and when you're going to spend what they want on 3D printed stuff, it would be nice if it lasted for a bit. Evergreen stock also gets brittle with age, especially the thin stuff. I have some that's been around, and the thin stuff definitely doesn't want to bend the way it used to.l
  12. The Duesenberg and the Lagonda have my attention. Now if only they were in 1/24/5 kit form.
  13. I look at the three dots that everyone is supposed to know calls up all the extra functions, and I keep getting flashbacks to the running joke in "Demolition Man" about the three sea shells.
  14. There was also a 1/16 scale Royale released by Bandai, and Entex. I've only built the Lindberg kit, but as I recall, it wasn't bad. It was the Weinberger cabriolet, where Italeri has kitted both the Coupe Napoleon and the Berline de Voyage, and the Entex/Bandai kit is the Binder Coupe de Ville, so if you want to model a particular version, you have options.
  15. There are some very nice builds in the archives that deserve another look. Sometimes, someone posting 10 years ago had just the problem you had, and possibly a solution, too.
