Not a kit as such , but a transkit from Renaissance to convert Tamiya’s Impreza into a gravel car . Great detailing in these parts and it was ordered from Spotmodels on Sunday evening and arrived , by Royal Mail , today . Great service by all concerned !

I've got a 1/12 Doyusha Countach in the stash which comes with the raised 5 holes rims. I much prefer the smooth faced version that the later cars came with so I contacted a vendor (Demon Resin) on eBay and he made some for me. He wanted to do some rims for the Trumpeter 1/12 GT40 and since I had that kit in my stash, I sent the kit wheels and tires to him to use as a template. He sent back a set of wheels for that kit as well

The best bit was I also sent the rims from my old Tamiya 1/12 MP4/6 kit and he made new tires for that as well as the required spacers to make them fit the kit wheels.

Not only did I get a set of slicks but also a set of rain tires on resin rims so I now have the option of going to either setup.

Compared to the kit tires, this is a huge improvement. Just a bit out of round.

I started the kit back in '93 and the original tires have degraded over time.  Now I stand a better chance of finishing it.

It has been a while since I posted in this thread but that is because I haven't been spending much on cars, having achieved my aim of having every 1/32 Airfix car kit. However, I couldn't resist another purchase:

Airfix 1/32 Morris Marina (03405-0)

I already have one in my stash and the price paid for that one was the most I have ever paid for a kit. This boxing was almost £30 cheaper than the other one so I couldn't resist it. As Airfix damaged the original moulds for this kit and it can never be produced again, the price of these kits will increase over time. Even so, I intend to make this one.

Just bought these 3 to add to the ever growing stash. The sf70h also have full s27 carbon and the f2008 has the full decals for the ciggy logos 

The 550 is IMHO one of the best looking ferraris made and to have a lemans/gt version just made it better.

If not, give me a shout, I'm pretty sure I still have a set of those decals as I did mine in the Bastos red scheme

Thanks Redstaff I'll keep your offer in mind! Where did you get the Bastos decals from? I used similar on a Porsche 911.

No problems, can't remember to be honest. Maybe Spot model or Ebay?

But they weren't Bastos decals, they were Lancia Chardonnet now I've had a look back on my builds 🙄

Was the unbranded version cheaper than one with sponsors? Just asking becuase I'm sure I remember from a few years ago seeing about a manufacturer (forget which one, but it looks as though it would have been Heller) producing plain versions so people could have the option of getting decals of various versions of the car without the manufacturer going to the expense of producing a set of decals destined for the bin.

It was a very reasonable £29.95 , free postage off B Bay . It is the tarmac spec car , even though the box shows a gravel car . I have plans for it already .....

I think I already confessed my dump truck addiction earlier in this thread...

It never hurts to have another one. The big Autocar, the front fenders, the big dump body... totally love it. I paid a very good price for it on the marketplace. Just wondering what "montone" means :think:

Google says that Montone manufacture truck and trailer bodies in the USA.

Right, I noticed the label on the box art's body after I posted, but couldn't edit because apparently Mike was updating the forums. Thanks Pete.

Tamiya did a 'white box' release of the Escort Cosworth a few years back, no box art and no decals.

Hiroboy has just two types/logo's of decals for this kit, and Scalemates some others. DModels have a Petter Solberg rallycross set,  and various others.

Picked up this little set recently for the magnifer gt40 so hopefully soon should have a detailed version of ken miles' lemans car from 66

Envious !!!  But I can't bring myself to spend a sum of money on that after market that's about 50% more than I spent on the kit .....
