should I sell my white norev 1:18 mk1 golf gti for the new welly mk1gti?
mkhabbazId be very careful with Welly. I bought their Evoque and its basically an expensive whack job. The wheels are so big they turn like 5 degrees only. Very cheap feeling too.

CraigLook at the roof line & windows etc, they are completely wrong!

///M meisterI see what u mean now its almost like a chop top compared to my norev thanks for the advice. As for the evoque I had one when it first came out and thought the same so I got rid of it.

On a diorama what is the best source for a road? I used really soft black sandpaper but it didn't stay flat... Do you guys have any recommendations?
E Rod_017Roof shingles? Or spray on pickup truck bed liner

Damon PatersonI used a textured spray paint, then covered over that with flat black spray paint. It gives the look of freshly laid asphalt, I've done it a few times and am quite happy with the result. You can check out my Dio builds to see it. Good Luck! :)

For 1:87 scale collectors, how about this beast: http://www.dhsdiecast.com/Marion-6360-Shovel-The-Captain-187-Brass/productinfo/CCMM6360/
Is there anyone with a UT 911? If so does your wheel's brim melt? Or stick?
iluda1551Ah thank you so much for you're help

Is the 1:18 scale map in the CMC 300 SLR #722 (Stirling Moss) suposed to be inside the foam clamshell? I don't have it in my new 300 SLR :( QC mistake by CMC?
AMDit should also have the metal cover at the exhaust and a black screw driver aswell
Jul 26 2014 10:13 AM
Uzairthe black scewdriver and exchaust cover are both there. Just the map is missing...
Thanks for the tip AMD :)

I just went to deisgns in motion it's a shame that their closeing... Does anyone have a F333 SP? If you do does your tire collect everything it touches?
AutobahnIt is absolutely a shame about Designs in Motion. We're losing a great store, but more importantly, I am going to miss dealing with Greg White, the owner, who is an absolute asset to the hobby. I hope he enjoys retirement. Unfortunately, I think this closing is a sign of the times.

iluda1551I gotta agree he was a very kind man. He told me to come again soon

I am looking to buy the welly 1:18 964 turbo. Does it have any issues and have big box stores carried welly?
jazzy426I bought NEX version earlier this year and I am very impressed with the details.

FastAlfa99Is it of AutoArt level?
Yesterday, 06:45 PM
But then again, it is miles cheaper.

I am looking at the Norev present line-up and in the near future.. I'm loving it! The 1997 Mercedes Benz S600, grey metallic OMG
Can some please tell me what glue can be used to put back a front grill on a BMW model without leaving residue.

seppukuYou mean Elmer's!?!?
No way, Jose!!
Jul 25 2014 11:27 PM
juju396Interesting....Exoto recommends Elmer's for repairs! http://www.exoto.com/s/1/FAQ.aspx?Language=&PageCode=FAQ_Returns

Can someone tell me why AutoArt LFA so sought after???
Clubshakeronly diecast maker to make it and plus only 500 LFAs have been produced by Lexus
Jul 25 2014 02:30 PM
LFABecause it has one of the best sounds for a v10, and it looks amazing!
Jul 25 2014 10:04 PM
g3org3yIt's a stunner of a car. I watched one on UK eBay last week; comfortably made over £100.

Got my CMC W25 and 300 SLR - hell's bells and bees knees CMC makes some amazing models! Count me as a recent convert to the CMC side (their subject matter always put me off, and now I wish even more that they'd expand to grand prix racers from 1965 to 1975, my favorite era, and also the 1983 BT52)
The Aventador is orange (Arancio Argos).
Jul 25 2014 10:29 PM
seppukuIf you think CMC is "detail king", then Exoto is "Detail GOD"....:)
Jul 25 2014 11:29 PM
UzairHaha I know, I got a Nissan R89 and Sauber C9, both are incredible but as Craig had told me, the CMC 300 SLR has better engine detail. I do know that the Exoto Tipo 156 and especially the Jaguar D-Type XS models are the ultimate 1:18 models, but I refuse to pay 1000 USD for a single model ;)
