    Having a pile of V-8's sitting and waiting for attention, and waiting for my canopy masks to arrive, I thought that I'd start ever so slightly with the RAMCHARGERS Dodge, possibly followed by the COLOR ME GONE II and MAVERICK....

    Nice kits Jan! 8)

    I haven't built a car since I was a kid, I still have two 1/24 Lamborghinis, a Countach and a Diablo somewhere at my parents place. Both brush painted. I can remember slathering on the Humbrol gloss red and getting a nice smooth finish on them. I might try and do another car build sometime now that I have the proper equipment.

    Cheers guys! Still undecided about the rollcage for the moment. Posted at a NASCAR forum, which also deals with the good ol' F/X from the 60's to see what's what....:lol:

    Here's a pic of that countach I built when I was about 11 :oops: Not a smooth as I remember! And the wing mirrors and wiper got lost over the years. It's a bit dusty too!

    It's inspired me to build another one, iirc it was the only tamiya kit I bought as a kid, so I googled it and discovered they have released an updated LP400 kit, the Mk1 Countach (the one above is the LP500S), I prefer the LP400, it has much cleaner lines then the later models.

    I'm bidding on ebay for one, I want to build it in one of those whacky 70's colours, green or orange I reckon. 8)

    Great cars guys, I like the older ones, at least one could tell at a glance the make and model, not like today when at a glance they look similar.

    I've a couple if F1 to build on a rainy day and have a Bugatti 1991, Lambo 1988 and Chevy 1997 to grace my shelves.

    It's great to see someone having a bash at some of the oldie cars, i had a fad several years ago and loved them to bits. I would love that MASSIVE Ferrari car you can get is it 1/12th or something like that is it a F40 8)

    My last car was the black charger from 'the fast and the furious' i built it for my son's birthday, just searched for it and i can't believe it was in 2006 :oops:

    Re: my son's dodge charger [ pic's ] - FineScale.com Forums

    I'm glad your enjoying yourself with your models Lucky 13, it might start me off again :car29:
