Very nice additions there Jesper, plenty of General Motors goodness! I almost picked up that Camaro kit a week or so back, it's a great looking kit.

Cheers, D

This came in the mail yesterday from all the way in the Ukraine.
It is a 1/24 scale replica of wheels of wheels made by MTechnica, a company that I design wheels for. USCP has a pretty large selection of transkits and resin wheels.

Quality on the wheels seem pretty crisp and clean as well.

I haven't seen the '54 Hornet kit around, looks good. Are you going to build it for the '50s Group Build?

Nice pickups.

Cheers!

Great buy's there Richard.

The Moebius 53 Hudson is a superb kit. Can't see wy the '54 and the Chrysler 300 shouldn't be equally as impressive.

Best buddy in England had one of these in Red, I will paint this one red for old time sake.

Yes, those resin wheel casts look clean indeed.

I bought the 1/35 Ford F-350 by Meng. I wanted to compare to the 1/24 version.

Richard, nice pick. I have my eyes on it since long. It's the only Mustang I like, actually.

Will be nice to see a build blog.

Cheers!

Thanks, guys. I'm looking forward to doing The General. I just hope I can do it justice.

The '49 Mercury will be a police car similar to Sheriff from "Cars".



But without the "eyes" in the windshield!
