A CHECK is no good for me, nothing I have needs checking!

A CHEQUE is no good either, as by the time I cash it here, it's worth nothing!

I need MODELS, models I can't get! Get me a model I want, and I'll swap it for the R34.

i'll just take my business elsewhere. i really would get you some nice racing ones like the supra but the only racing ones i've found is like an 80's corolla gts or something if you want that, i can make the trade. there just isn't a great enough demand where i live for there to be tons of hobby stores that carry magnificent models.

Yeah, thanks Jay!

No offence to anyone, it's just that good Tamiya models are hard to find here!
Only worth swapping for something of equal rarity!
The fact I have had to order a load from Japan is testimony to that!

What all did you order anyways? Or are you going to join the "surprise" club here and only reveal your projects when they're started and going well?

Looking at that snow in your sig, you'd think they'd make a roaring trade in the winter!!!

you know that black part of the R34 in the bumper area... why isn't that the same colour as the car?

i know it's like that in real life, but why don't they make it the same color? (in real life)

I'm sure it looks like the walls that model Railways use for buildings in there displays.
One of the modelers in our club does the same thing.
Cut the wood out to size then you stick the false wall on to it.
You can get all types of wall finshers.

It actually looks textured to me, as in some other pics it has a bubbly effect!

Nice though, I like it!
