  1. Sure if you could find our how well they fit that would be great. I wonder if it would be possible to take the body pieces, glass and interior from the snap kit and the rest from AMT's old 1/25 version, I have that one already and it would be the same scale. I will test it when I get the snap kit.
  2. Nice build. I am aware of that kit but I want a full detail one. I will probably buy the snap kit eventually but then I need to find different wheels I don't like the custom ones.
  3. Thanks for the offer. Unfortunately after Brexit it is expensive to import stuff. I will try to make copies I already have everything I need but if it fails I will contact you and see if you still have the parts.
  4. Never heard of this bike but the moment I saw the kit I knew I had to have it. I plan to build a civilian version with chrome. The tires and chain is molded in rubber-like material but for some reason they are skin colored. Any idea if I need special paint for this? Never painted on soft plastic. '70 Chevelle is my favorite. Wish there was a modern tool. Too bad Revell stopped after making the '68 and '69.
  5. I wasn't so lucky with the previous purchase I posted here but this time the luck was on my side. The Airfix Austin Healey Sprite MK1 was the first kit I ever built and for a while I have been looking to get another one but they are hard to come by. The seller wasn't sure the kit was complete but it turns out the box contained almost two complete kits. Most of the missing pieces I should be able to scratch build but the front body piece and the seats could be tricky. I might try to make molds and make copies out of epoxy putty, I have done that in the past.
  6. Looks great. Much better color than the box art.
  7. Won this on the swedish ebay. Said it had never been opened unfortunately that was not true. Both the MGB and DB5 have been started and the DB5's body is crushed. Don't think I will even try to fix it the rest of the kit looks quite bad anyway. The MGB looks salvageable though. At least the E-Type was still sealed. Fortunately I didn't pay much for the kits. I haven't checked the state of the paint and glue.
  8. First purchases this year. The Toyota is a real nice kit but unfortunately they didn't include a LHD option would have been really easy the way they designed the kit.
  9. Great then I leave it to you to find the best solution then I will copy it for my build.
  10. Excellent work so far. Will you do something about the seam under the door or leave it? I still haven't decided what I will do when I get the kit maybe it is not worth the trouble.
  11. It works now thanks. Looks like a very good start to me. I consider myself a beginner too and what I have learned so far is build for fun not pefection. If you can do both then great but for me only accepting a perfect result or otherwise redoing it took the fun out of building and I was more likely to never finish the build and put it back in the box.
  12. Don't know if it is something wrong on my side but I cannot see the photos.
  13. I am very pleased with the announcement. I didn't have any expectations and as a car builder I now have a Bond Bug, McLaren, Lamborghini and an Aston Martin to look forward to.
  14. Beautiful build. My kit also has bonnet fit issues hopefully I can make mine look decent when I build it.
