  1. Not yet but its due in the next 4 weeks as i start my new job at the new location next month. But the models will be carefully put in movingboxes and they go in my car on the trip up. The only one to pack them is me, as my gf dont want to touch them because she is afraid of accidently dropping one. The unbuilt ones can go with the rest of my stuff. Unfortunatley i have about 30 airplanes that i just know will break nomatter what i do with them. The tanks and millitary vehicles will most likley survive. 4 sailingships that probably also will get some sort of damage
  2. I dont have the Titanic (i want but my wallet says no right now) but i know they have been around in that scale for a few years. I have the USS missouri in 1/200 it has over 1500 parts but not yet built it because i have no room for it as it will be a bit over 53" long. It comes with a ton of photoetch for railings and other things. There are detail sets with even more + either tan or blue wood deck available for it.
  3. Anyone had the invisible ads yet? They happen mostly while looking at the forum on the phone. If i want to go in on for example wip big rigs and heavy equipment i click on that like normal but instead of going to all the posts it will redirect me to whatever ad was hiding there. It can be any section of the forum and you never know where they hide because of the invisible part of them. Sometimes they are worse and sometimes they are not there at all, its been a few days now since the last ad tricked me. But while on my phone i dont have adblocker on to help a bit but they can atlea
  4. Thanks again for the help with ideas. I will try to carefully pack them in boxes and then i am going to be the only one moving them. Hopefully only small things will break on them and nothing big. Most of the mirrors and antennas are attached using superglue so they will probably break clean of the model if something happens to them.
  5. Thanks for all the suggestions. Some of the things mentioned did i not even think about myself.
  6. I am in the process of moving to a new house with my gf and have no idea of how to pack my built models so they survive the trip. The new house is 400 miles away from the one i have now. I know there will be some damages to them but i want to minimize that as much as possible. Many of the trucks will probably still loose their mirrors, antennas and stacks no matter how carefull i am with them. There must be some people here who have moved and brought their built models with them? What did you do to make them survive the trip?
  7. No like button. The only thing that i going to happen is that when someone asks a question or want help with something else they have problems with, their thread will have a bunch of likes and not a single answer. Thats not helpfull at all for that person or anyone else that might have the same problem later on. I would rather have one real answer that might help me or not but that is way more helpfull then x amounts of likes.. I appreciate that some person took their time to write and try to help me with whatever problem i might have run in to or discuss an idea to see if it is poss
  8. I irked myself today. I wanted to see how hard it would be to clean the white parts of my house (corners, door/windowsurroundings and balcony) from dirt, moss and algae ( my house is surrounded by forrest) To my surprise it came of easily so now i am forced to clean the rest of them to avoid it looking weird. As a bonus i also have to repaint all of those parts as the paint flaked of on some.. Well atleast i have something to do now when i dont have any motivation to build anything..
  9. Haha, yes it is toasted. I think i am going to disassemble it to be able to see how the bearings looks like.
  10. Probably, but they were probably so small so they just flew out again with the exhaust. The most damage was done on the exhaust side and any larger pieces from that are stuck somewhere in the exhaustsystem.
  11. Same with plastic used in the enginebay of any vehicle old or modern. You dont want to touch it because it will break and if you have to and not being able to work around it without disturbing the plastic part you better be prepared to have a replacement on hand or be very very very carefull. EVAP lines, vaccuum lines, fuellines, electrical connectors and any other plastic part will break when you are just looking at it for to long when they have been in thousands of heatcycles.
  12. Nice. The decals looks really good on a black paintjob. I also have 2 of them. One that i built about 20 years ago and are just falling appart now. I think about resoring to how it is supposed to look but its no more then a thought at the moment because alot of parts are missing so there will be alot of scratchbuilding on it. The other is still in a box and i dont know if i should build it or just save it for later when i have room for them both.
  13. Not MPC yet. But i had a AMT Bandag Bandit made sometime in the 70's and i accidently dropped one framerail when i was trying to unwarp it and it shattered in several pieces. Many Airfix kits to that were very brittle and if not being carefull the parts would break on the sprue when another was being removed. Some small 1/72 ICM kits were so brittle that i just never used some parts because they would break. They have gotten much better now with their modern kits then those that were from sometime in the 90's
  14. About a month ago the turbocharger in my 6.5 suburban suddenly developed a horrible grinding noise when i was about 3 hours from home in the middle of the night. I had 2 options, shutting it off at the side of the road on one of the major highways here (not a good idea) or keep driving it and hoping i would get home before something more catastrophic happend. I.e. axle snapping and engine feeding itself with the engineoil and making it a runaway that will revv it self to death. Since the damage already had already happend i choose to keep driving to get home and then park it untill i cou
  15. Found these 3 aoshima Delorean's on ebay so i bought them all. I have not yet decided if i am going to buy 3 more just i can have all of the movie versions on display at the same time, all three can be built in 2 different ways.
