    Absolutely sure you’ve no idea why I responded in the first place.

    Moving on, was the GT Spider the GT40, or an ‘05 GT? I’d not heard of it, certainly had interest in GT40. I’m a 1/25-1/25 collector mostly unless the topic is irresistible or too fun to pass by.

    In the fun vein, a friend brought me a Meccano Ferrari F1 car kit. Absolutely awful replica that is a lot of fun. Hadn’t seen Meccano in decades. I’ll try to post a pic next time it’s handy.

    I haven’t checked the QR diecast thread lately but there’s a Tintin based diecast collection I’ve seen on eBay. One is an alleged 1/24 B20 Lancia, pics not good enough to see fidelity.

    That was/is very rude. You just don't get 'it.'

    Potential there. Nothing some hand-laced wires can't fix. Fernando may be working on some soon I'd think. Engine has some gorgeous castings for blower/intakes, can't wait to see.

    Peter Sachs ran his 1:1 a lot, if you ever get to hear one, you'll never forget it. Evil. Just evil.

    FYI Scale Motorsport has detail-up for RG Ford GT, I'd heard. No details, but first new product in awhile.

    Man, that looks nice....good choice in that scale for Italeri, especially considering it will most likely be reasonably affordable...

    That 1:12th Monza looks like it will be a wonderful kit. Looking forward to this one!

    Lol. Is that the real class winner, or the 0.1L over DQ runner up. ACO needs less mathematics, more racing.
    MFH will still get a cease and desist letter I’m sure. Sad.
    For off-road fans, RG doing new tool of 109 Defender 4 door. Old Esci 109 two door coming back, as well as the 2 door Rangie.
    Aoshima finally reissuing the four door Rangie too.
    Plethora of fun cars to be built.
    Sad few use their Rangies off road. Really ticked off my wife when I tore the bumper off her Rhino at the ranch. Awesome trucks.

    Inevitable I guess. I sure wish Hiro would do some Can-Am cars. He could at least do a 350 Can-Am...all he'd really need to do is a body and a few other modifications to go with his existing 330 P4 kit. How about Donohue's Lola T-70? In 1/12 scale, that car would be an absolute knockout. A couple of Shadows, maybe? Do I hear a McLaren M8?? Chaparral 2H?

    Don't say these are too obscure...remember, Hiro did Senna's Toleman....

    Any Chaparral in 1/12th would be great. Hiro does not seem to do many American race series cars. A lot of people also want the 333SP, but don't forget it was made for IMSA.

    We had ex Hill high wings car. I have minimal pics of it, but god what a car. Need that variant. One of the prettiest.
    If you’re ever near Midland TX Jim Hall’s cars are at petroleum institute. They run one usually monthly. Ran 2J a couple mos ago. Lol. What a car.
