  1. Haha, yes it is toasted. I think i am going to disassemble it to be able to see how the bearings looks like.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. That explains it. I got confused bu the exhaust manifold and intake manifold just having 4 ports connecting it to the head.
  9. This must be the oddest truck i have built. Also the first ever 4cylinder powered truck i have built. Nothing extra added, just out of the box build. It has some fitment issues even if the frame is straight. I had to mount the cab with a slight turn in it to get it to line up and close the gap between the cab and the hood. Its still not perfect but good enough for me. The paint is from greenstuffworld and is called burning gold. It was supposed to be red that turns to yellow/gold so i have no idea where the green came from. Its hard to find a paint that works with darkbrown met
  10. I would use the AMT california hauler for that conversion kit.
  11. This irked me just a little earlier today when i got home from work. I managed to get stuck in my own driveway it got hung up on the skidplate under the fueltank and had to dig it out and then spend 45minutes removing snow with a shovel from the rest of the driveway. I think i had snow that was about 15" deep.. And it is still snowing...
  12. So how does someone that dont understand russia buy from them?
  13. Looks great, i have to build mine soon to. I can only hope mine looks as good as yours do.
