  1. How can this thing be registered and legally driven on the road? Last time I checked, something hanging off a rearview mirror is not allowed in the US.
  2. I saw him on stage some 20 years ago in London, playing Big Daddy in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof". Great actor! RIP
  3. On the lookout for Minilite wheels that will fit my Revell Mini Cooper (original, not the modern car). Preferably the Tamiya race car or rally car wheels, but similar will also do. I could also use a set of matching tires, but I can probably make do with the set I have from the kit. I have stuff to trade and/or willing to compensate otherwise. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  4. I guess I’d be fine with nuclear, too. Sure, it has its drawbacks, nothing is fail-safe, but if controlled I actually consider this an ok solution.
  5. I agree about hydrogen being an effective and clean solution commercially speaking, but privately/individually I reckon it would be quite a widespread hazard, more so than gasoline or anything else viable, for that matter, at least with the technology we currently know.
  6. Electricity can be generated by the water, wind and sun, all of which are plentiful natural resources 🙂 But I am no scientist and certainly cannot offer a definitive solution to any of these complex issues, but it sure is intriguing to ponder the imminently different future, so I certainly appreciate a good discussion about it 😎
  7. Indeed, I do agree third world and developing countries will take somewhat longer to switch to electric vehicles than I suggested in my above post. The number of such countries in the world today is rapidly dwindling, however, and they are mostly restricted to Africa and possibly several in South America and Asia. Few have their own auto Industry (India, perhaps), and the second hand vehicle market is more prevalent there anyway, so I suppose they will be relying on mass fossil fuel use a bit longer than the developed world. But, again, I am not saying oil and its derivates will ever be banned
  8. Even though I am not a particular proponent of electric cars myself, and little can replace the sound and smell of a rumbling v8 in my sensory field, I must disagree. First of all, never did I write that internal combustion will die tomorrow, I am talking about 20 years. Think of where cellphone tech/internet were 20 years ago, and look where they are now. Of course the technology is not yet perfect, but one cannot deny the leap that has been made in the last few years. How many Teslas did you see driving around 5 yrs ago, and how many do you see today? However, this is a limited production hy
  9. Or you could just buy an internal combustion hypercar for much less money 😉 I understand your point, and this company could have well made fantastic internal combustion cars, but they opted for electricity because, whether we like it or not, that is the future... and it is happening fast. Within 10 years no more petrol cars will be made or sold, and in 20 years we will only be able to register and drive them as heritage. I guess engine sounds can always be recorded and generated through the sound system as in the electric Mercedes AMG GT 😝
  10. Indeed, poor Hamster was almost killed by the Concept One 😱
  11. The country that gave the world Nikola Tesla, the father of electricity, now has the world’s fastest hypercar, Rimac Nevera, which happens to be 100 percent electric. With some 1900 HP generated from 4 electro motors, the car which accelerates from 0-60 in 1.85 seconds and has a top speed of around 260 mph, was completely designed, developed and built in Croatia by Rimac Automobili. The car is in fact a showcase for the company that designs and develops electrical components for the likes of Porsche and Bugatti, and production will be limited to only 150 cars. The future is now, gents, the onl
  12. No problem, glad I could help... They are not in order, but the blue and red paint colors are the newest, the ones on the right are older designs from the 90's. Just to be clear, Revell has introduced acrylic paints in plastic cubes a few years back, as well as a relatively new line of spray-can paint, but these tin-can enamels have been around literally forever. I mostly use them for engines, interiors and chassis, as they have nice satin/semi matt effects (SM-seidenmatt). But I cannot stress enough that they must be thoroughly thinned with a solvent such as clear turpentine, which is what I
  13. Revell enamel paints in little tin jars are not new, nor were they ever “relabelled” Humbrol. They have existed in Europe since I can remember, so 30 plus years for sure. They are only new to the US market it seems, but they have been around, tried and tested, for a long time now. I like them, they just need to be thinned down quite a bit. And so as to avoid confusion that I have come across elsewhere regarding this paint, “email” writing on them has nothing to do with electronic post, it simply means “enamel” in several European languages 😝 I have these... all same paint with different can de
  14. Most excellent body/wheel color combo!
