  1. Thanks for sharing Shawn. Really nice kit and even better build. Way above my abilities. Carl
  2. Well, Lucky Model has it listed for $109.99 and they're currently offering 10% off that. Carl
  3. My wife's from Sudbury. She hates our Toronto winters as there isn't enough snow for her. So once the white stuff hits, she on the slopes (well, mounds) and had gotten our boys into skiing. Me? I'm in the chalet keeping toasty. Although how that'll work this year will be interesting. Carl
  4. Looks to be a cool kit. I actually just got the Bronco 1/35 Type XXIII kit so I think I'm good for large scale subs. Carl
  5. I have an Ikea Besta case that my Tamiya Mossie just fits in. You can get a 1/32 F-4E on the shelf too. I believe they come in two depths, this is the deeper of the two. I don't know if a He219 will fit as I haven't finished mine to find out. Carl
  6. Hadn't heard of them before. I took a quick Google search and couldn't find where they're available. Back on topic, are there any glaring issues with the Trumpeter version as it's 1/4 the price of the Meng kit.
  7. The only Daytona Coupe kits I know of are in 1/24. One is the old Gunze Hi-tech kit and another is the more recent resin Scale Motorsports kit. The most recent is by Model Factory Hiro. Maybe they'll do one to go with their 1/12 427 Cobra... Carl
  8. AML makes a conversion for the recent Revell II kit. I used it on my built and I think it came out ok. The clipped wing tips came from the Tamiya kit. Carl
  9. I was going through some boxes and found a complete RC car that wasn't assembled. It was still in the box. Couldn't remember buying it or where it came from. I finally got around to working on it recently and it's almost done.
  10. Thanks Michael! No, we're still in the city and the potholes are still just as bad. I can't ride in winter any more after my triple bypass last fall. I'm too susceptible to the cold now. I did take it for one last rip through Durham Forest right before dropping off with the buyer. It was a ton of fun. I still have other bikes though so I'm still able to hit the dirt.
  11. I've picked up a couple new kits lately, nothing LSP though. Mostly 1/35 stuff I'm currently building the earlier release of this kit with a different style of trailer so thought I'd pick this one up as well. I'm definitely not a ship modeler but I've wanted one of those for a while so finally broke down and got one. Lastly, I recently sold my fat bike as I can't ride in the winter any more. I decided to pick up something to just goof around on Need to get some discs for it,
  12. They're primarily known as an RC store. I used to get my fuel and batteries from them when I was racing RC cars in the the '90s. More recently they've started to carry more scale models and supplies. Which is always a bonus. Carl
  13. A quick follow up. Great Hobbies is having their Thanksgiving sale this weekend and they're offering 10% off. Canadian Thanksgiving is this Monday for those south of the border wondering.
  14. Here's a comparison of the kit burner can on the left and the GT Resin on the right.
  15. From my own experience, if a store has it in stock and not the warehouse, they will ship it to the warehouse and then send it out and vice versa. That may have changed though.
  16. Don't forget the free shipping on orders over $99 CAD. I get stuff from Great Hobbies on a regular basis. They have a location on the way to the mountain bike trails I take the boys to. The boys like to stop in there as well.
  17. They're all the plastic bits from the kit in a plain white box. No instructions even as those have to be downloaded. They're currently 20% off at Sprue Brothers as their weekend deal.
  18. Tamiya Extra Thin will work on ABS plastic but you need to be a bit generous with it. I recently built a Sabre Models railcar kit that was ABS and used Tamiya cement. Most joins were fine but a few needed a second application of glue. Tamiya does make an ABS specific cement.
  19. I picked up some figures for a build of a Scammell tank transporter and M3 Grant. I also got something a bit bigger. I'm debating how much I'm going to mod this. At the moment, I'm thinking not much. Carl
  20. For those on the reservation list, the pre-order page is now open. I just made the payment for mine. Carl
  21. I think some of the Hobbycraft moulds were done by Academy as some of their kits have shown up in Academy boxes. Hobbycraft reboxed some Trumpeter kits (P-38, P-40, F-105, Corsair) so maybe that's where the confusion comes from? Carl
  22. Great Hobbies in Canada just got some kits in yesterday. The Camels are now gone but they still have some other kits. https://greathobbies.com/search/results/?srchtype=AdvSearch&srchvendor=WNW&srchcat=PKA If you're in Canada, they have free shipping over $99. And yes, the prices are in Loonies.
  23. You would have to see what the Chinese character the name is to definitively find out how to pronounce it. Then make sure you're pronouncing it in Mandarin and not Cantonese. Nevermind Shanghainese or Fukingese. My parents can speak all four dialects. Made things a right mess when I was growing up and probably explains why people think I'm from Hong Kong even though I was born in Canada.
