What CAR/BIKE kits have you recently bought 2?

Recommended Posts

Two Italeri Mk2 Escort RS1800's to use as donor kits for my two Passion for Racers Mk1 Escort resin transkits. I still have a few Esci/Revell Mk2 kits in stock but was always reluctant to cannabalise them as I want to actually build Mk2's from them, so always planned to scratchbuild the needed parts for the transkits. But with the Italeri re-issue and an e-bay voucher that let me buy two for less than thirty quid, it was a no brainer! Also got some lovely Mk1 Mexico stripe decals from Mark at Motobitz to stick on them!

 

I 'plan' to try & convert the two spare Mk2 bodyshells into a standard RS2000 and an X-pack RS2. Only problem is if I actually do, I'll need another two kits for rhe rest of the bits...!! :D

Made a couple of great deals with a Facebook buddy this week. 

 

Model factory hiro Ferrari f10 Aus gp. Finally I can make the f10 with the proper barcode decal.

And model factory hiro Ferrari f2008 version a. The Brazil massa car will be done. Just need to pick up some intermediate tyres for it.

Had this when I was a teenager and it popped up locally so I bagged it.

As all of these finds the engine and wheel and the frame usually have been assembled .

They never scrape the chrome off so the wheels and mill fall apart. I have a number of kits in that shape.

One of the ridiculously long fork genre of kits, still , love them all.

A couple of buys this week.

 

Ive had my eye on the first purchase for a while, kind of hoping they'd drop in price but they haven't. The Aoshima pagani huayra. 

 

Then second I joined the club and bought a couple of tamiya Mercedes amg gt3s. Might see if I can mate a revell amg gts to the gt3 and make an amg gtr and then maybe add the revell V8 biturbo to the tamiya gt3..

From what I've seen so far it is very hard to disagree with you Steve. I love the fact they include the clear body parts aswell as the white plastic body parts it really opens up the build options.

Well I finally did it - I bought my bucket list 1/12 MFH kit. I was going to wait a while and make a 'considered' purchase, but they ganged up on me! Just before Christmas came some teaser shots and, well it's a Mazda 787B - I didn't stand a chance.

 

So this lot arrived today, courtesy of some very quick service from Hiroboy. Glasses are on the box to show just how, er, large the thing is. It's also jam-packed with awesomely-moulded resin and white metal, plus some equally impressive turned aluminium, PE, decals, vac form clear, hoses - everything really. Is it the best kit I've ever bought? Undoubtedly - and by a country mile. I just hope I can turn my best kit purchase into my best model...

£75 well spent (or at least that's what I shall be telling the wife) :)

I think I still need a fix of those wonderful MFH wire wheels, so maybe one day a classic Ferrari sports racer will be added to the stash. I've seen your MFH F1 Ferrari so I know I'm leaning against an open door. Could be the start of an expensive habit... :yes:
