What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)


Recommended Posts

We had a small swap meet here a few weeks ago and I picked these two up to replace a couple of toasted original kits.

Also managed to track down one of these after quite a bit of searching through a friend. Turns out he found it in China, and the seller in China sent it to Pennsylvania...in a padded mail envelope. That about bent the kit box in half, but somehow nothing broke...

Dang that sucks man. Was this straight from zoomon or from another site? Everything I’ve always ordered from zoomon I always got, and they always add free stuff.

This pair from the same seller:

Both to be done as road cars. Without going into the world of 3D I can't think of this generation Civic being available in non-racing guise?

Silvia fills a gap amongst the 1980s Nissans in my stash. LS400 detail sets should help me complete a current, longstanding WIP and then build a replica of my 1:1 example.

Like this Nigel?

They are out there but don't seem to come cheap.

Thanks Steve. That's the 1983-on version, and I was lucky to pick one up a few years ago. The one I got is from 1987 to '91, the only road car of that generation I can think is the Fujimi CRX.

Ok, I see now. Had to look it up to find the difference, they look almost identical to me.

This 1/24 UPC Ford GT40 just in.  I had never seen one before and the price was reasonable.  The surprise though is the box art is of a 1965 nose and mag wheels and the model is of a 1964 Le Mans April trials nose with wire wheels.  Shown with the K&B slot body.  Since it is motorized I will slip a Fujimi chassis, wheels, and interior under it. I am happy with it tough.

Nice score on the UPC kit.  It looks similar to the LS kit but I can see the difference in the front.  By the way have you built one of the Lemans Miniatures MKI resin kits?  I have one in my stash in storage.

I checked Scalemates and there are Aoshima kits that share the same box art so I think UPC imported the GT40 from Aoshima.   I have only built the Gulf GT40 from Le Mans Miniature.

Just left the Monroe MI Hobby Lobby, with a Demon kit and 1960 Ford pickup kit. 

Almost forgot, the Ollies next door had anothr case of the 1930 Ford Woodie coke kit. They were not there a few weeks ago.
