Affordable 1/12 scale jammies?????

Post by Snowy on Tue Jan 06, 2015 2:34 pm

Hell, I have searched high and low for an affordable Lancia Stratos or Skyline GTR........ Evil or Very Mad

Guess what, they aint available!! Crying or Very sad  You will need to rob a bank to afford one of those "cherry" kits and as you have probably guessed, I'm quite reluctant to go down that road!!pale

So in the end I have opted for a 1/12 Tamiya Datsun (Nissan) 240Z at a fraction of the price (£89) including postage! Very Happy

I hope to pair this up with the Ducati I have recently finished in a garage diorama, which I hope to finish before I go on pension! tongue

Have you guys had similar experiences with some kits Question

Aah, you jammy sod!! A GT-40 no less, I'm envious! tongue

Here is a pic of the 240Z, it features PE adornments, which is a nice extra.

One of the best things about that kit is the engine, it really is a work of art.

Finished???????

You should know me by now, I'm busy tinkering with a Robotech (Macross) kit at the moment, so the Datsun will have to wait a while.... Suspect

I don't/can't build quick, its a labour of love every time... I love you
