  1. 1:35 scale pre-war civilian vehicles

    I like that; thanks. I think Revell is releasing other, maybe out of production?, manufacturer's kits. I picked up a 1:35 VW earlier this year which I thought was Tamiya molding.
  2. Part 2 Fiat Mefistofeles 1/12 Italeri

    there's quite a bit of chain drive information here: www.7-8ths.info/index.php?topic=16686893.msg103712#msg103712 but you may have to join to access. * link doesn't seem clickable so maybe break it apart???
  3. are there any 1928 to 1935/ 40 civilian cars available in 1:35 scale? I know there's a truck or two and some post war fiat, vw, jeeps.but i'm thinking of Austin or other similar with "wings' fenders rather than the closed cars of the late '40s & early '50s. styrene preferred, but resin is fine. thanks
  4. add a brass wire pin between the two parts if deemed particularly vulnerable.
  5. Steinbeck's "Cannery Row"

    thank you. regardless of the outcome, somewhere there will be an abandoned boiler converted into a Diogenistic hovel!
  6. Electronics help

    I think Woodlands Scenics is about to release models which use their proprietary lighting systems. maybe you can borrow the parts to get going? if it's a long term project, you can incorporate refinements as you go along, and learn more. http://fantasonics.com/Design1.html http://ittproducts.com/ http://www.ngineering.com/ https://lights4models.com/ https://woodlandscenics.woodlandscenics.com/show/category/ComingSoon

  11. Steinbeck's "Cannery Row"

    I am seeking information about Wing Chong's market and would appreciate any help offeredhttp://www.thehistorycompany.com/album_index.htmlhttp://www.thehistorycompany.com/albums ... intro.html Bill Johnk --- the Wing Chong Market.actually, a larger picture of the model would be really helpful, but I don't know how to do that!thanks
  12. Revell ‘Tweedy Pie’

    about two years ago, I finally gave up on this kit. but in 1966, it was the best, most detailed kit, by the company and Man I admired most. shows how perspective changes in 50 years.
  13. Repair 1/43

    I thought the scale must be much bigger until seeing the craft stick frame; very nicely done!
  14. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    I think keeping everything in one (this) thread is a good idea. when doing research, sometimes a person is not aware of periferal things which make a considerable difference in outcome. having these things mentioned as the research progresses can avoid "taking a wrong turn".
  15. creativity & imagination

    disclaimer for the squeamish: not sure where to put this, but I think in a general sense it speaks of creativity, and that's what Hobbies are all about. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upwyB9YegdU
