Thanks, Jesper. I'm using Google Photos (former Picasa) It works nicely.

Cheers!

Hi, guys!

Just added a few kits to my stash for whenever their time shall come:

Tamiya's New Beetle:


AMT's Lowboy trailer with load:


and MPC's Mack DM600:


All should be fine builds, I guess. Apparently are some problems with the AMT kit but nothing unmanageable.

Cheers!

Sean: I'm contemplating a two tone paint job, for the 1950 Olds. Cream(Ish) with a black top.

Not sure what to do with the 66 model, other than am wheels.

Was at a hobby fair saturday. 3 armor kits and these two auto kits. The dealer also had Revell's '72 Olds pace car, but at 65us$ it was way to expensive.

My mother in law never gives me a birthday present. She give me money to buy it myself, so that's what I did.
Revell samba VW bus


Fujimi De Tomaso Pantera. Always loved that car. When I was a kid and played with automobile cards, this was one of my favorits.


And a 1/24 scale figure, from Maim.

Hey Mike,

The fan is about as loud as your bathroom fan, the only major drawback to it. The LED's are awesome. I painted my '57 Bel-air body last night, and boy do I suck at airbrushing.

The LED'S shows every over/under spray on the body.

Other than the fan noise, I'm very pleased with it.

See ya in the funnies........

Hi Brian,
Cool! I've been using the unlighted version for over three years and have been very happy with it! Kinda' nice that they've added the LEDs! 🔆

Cheers!🍺

You sure like Team Lotus! My very first F1 car was the Tamiya 1/12 Team Lotus Type 78. Loved that car. Unfortunately it didn't survive the cat.

Thanks for the info and picture Jim, that is one interesting looking cab design. Looking forward to your build.

Jesper, I'm a Lotus fan through and through just a shame they are no longer in F1. I'm planing to pick up the Tamiya/Fujimi/Hasegawa Lotus F1 cars and the Ebbro type 49 high wing once it comes out.
