  1. Which of those "Tools and Garage" sets used a battery box? That's the confusing part to me.
  2. While on the surface that seems as good a guess as any, the above photos show that there's no lift in either of these kits. Both the #2 and #3 Tools kits seem to be a mix of newly-tooled tools...and recycled accessories from other models/sets. There are a bunch of camping accessories in set 3 that don't have much to do with car repair, but also house the bike and space heater. The ones in set 2 are more confusing to me. The battery box, the girder/beam parts, some things that are clearly specialized (is that a road sign? door to a toll booth?) and was just wondering what the KK and kk sprues r
  3. I just got this kit. The lighter gray sprues on the right are labeled "KK" and "kk." The only parts used are the bookshelf/locker and locker door (the three parts in the "center" row of those lighter gray racks) are the only ones used. I was wondering if anyone knew what the extra parts are supposed to be, and what kit they came from originally? There's a batter box that would hold two "AA" batteries, and the random looking frame shapes. They must be from another kit. Any idea what? Is there another Fujimi kit that can be added to use these parts? Thanks for any ideas. It's strange that almost
  4. I'm not an "industry insider" like so many of the posters here seem to be, but from what I've noticed every time Round2 has unearthed a kit from this era and re-released it in any form, they've been big enough sellers to get multiple issues. To my point: The Jeepster Commando is on either the second or 3rd reissue, the Fall Guy kit (Deserter) seems to have been done in several runs and available constantly for a couple of years now, and a bunch more were treated to a bit of tooling restoration and have been issued multiple times in "more vintage" forms. I have no idea what Round2's plann
  5. Very cool. Thanks for the info on the hood, also
  6. Really? You did such a poor job you confused others. Maybe mocking people isn't really what one should be attempting without the ability. Or, maybe mocking people really doesn't belong in the forum at all. Thanks for admitting to it, though. Your intent is now out there for all to see though, so you finally accomplished your goal after multiple tries.
  7. Well if they hear from the well-known insiders they may not be for long. The hobby has no place for rule breakers!
  8. I know that you have insider information because you work with the kit companies from previous posts. Have you thought of telling your insiders at Beemax/NuNu that someone is breaking the rules by promoting secret product announcements James? I'm sure they would appreciate it. They should cut off distributors who don't play by the rules!
  9. Really good work like this is fantastic. It truly looks real.
  10. I'm surprised by how many folks here thought any of this was spontaneous. Just one hint: American Pickers is shot with a single camera, so how come the "big find" is always being filmed? You'd think 50% of the time the person on the other side of the barn (or in the other barn half the time) would find the treasure. Nope! Always caught on camera, in an area lit well enough to make for a good view. All of these thing have to be looked at with the idea that it's a show looking for an audience that happens to be about X, which most people know nothing about but might watch if you concoc
  11. "The naysayers will take potshots at us to assuage their own egos, even to the point of wishing death to the magazine just because they can. We are already seeing examples of that on this Forum. I, nor anyone else on the team, will dignify such vitriol with a response." -Larry Greenberg, Associate editor of Model Cars Magazine. Interesting.
  12. This doesn't seem like a mature or even reasonable stream of logic. If you didn't like "the things you had to listen to over the last few years," why would you do the same to others? I'm guessing you really didn't mean to say that you're spreading "baseless speculation" about Scale Auto because you're upset by what people said on the Model Cars Magazine forum. Unless those things were said by employees of Scale Auto, of course.
  13. Everybody saying these are reprinted articles, does anyone know or is it just speculation in the absence of actually knowing anything? I mean, with all the people who are insiders here I'm sure someone actually knows.
