Been a while since we had one of these threads?
Curious to see whats everyone is getting and maybe get some ideas (not that I need more stuff).

I'll start - been on a 90's Japanese cars kick lately, so I got myself two old Tamiyas - R32 GT-R and a RX-7 R1 kits. Man, was old Tamiya a bit crude or what? :rofl:

Just scored a jaguar XJR-14 which I've been after for a while

Before that this year,

hummer and roof rack upgrade,

USP Eleanor from gone in 60s transkit and the revell kit to go with,

golf pirelli edition

356 speedster,

Lambo 3000 silhouette,

Lotus Elan

Walter wolf countach

Porsche 908

And at the start of the year most of the new lambo kits

I've spent too much. Boredom while working away and collecting for the future for when the kids are a bit older and I have less work commitments.

I think I may sell some of my bigger scale kits but I can't think about not having them to do!!

Lately I've been on a bit of an F1 buying spree. Picked up a couple of Ferraris and the Red Bull RB6 with the super detail set. Also a couple of BMWs I couldn't resist were the Beemax E30 M3 and the Hasagewa 2002 Turbo

Yes, I'm picking up both 2002 and Turbo later as well. So glad Hasegawa released these kits. Anyone doing engine trans/kits for these?

I never bought a F1, not in the last 10 years... something that needed to be fixed.... I bought the first, the Williams FW07, in April 2018... all other are newer bough this last summer (except the F310 and the T3 that are older)

For the past half year, a lot has come to the camp.
1:12 MFH mp 4-8,4-4; Lotus 98T, 99T; Williams FW11B, FW16; Brabham BT52B; Toleman TG184; Lancia 037; and a Tyrrell P34 that I have been working on for some time but can not get any further. To the AZRM rims are the Tamiya 1:12 MP4-6, 641/2, and two FW14B with TVR standard u. Bremsenset. Now I just miss the Side Pob detailset. That was when I think so now, expensive 1-2 years. I made a bargain on a 1:12 Rosso NSX Item 12001. Although he does not fit in my collection.

What is inside the box? Never heard of SMP!

SMP24 is a very small garage 1-man crew from Japan. Takashi Nishimura is his name, and he does very cool, fully-detailed models of obscure subjects, mostly Italian. Ferraris, Alfas, Maseratis, Lancias, Lamborghinis.

I have several of his kits, they are not perfect, but very cool subjects that nobody else does.

I don't have my own pictures, but here is the contents, minus decals and photoetch:

Here a SMPmodel build. Good level of details but very average casting, bad fitting and the usual problems with all similar resin kits (like windows, wheeles positions, etc, etc...).

Good level of details but very average casting.

You think so? IMO the casting quality is very good, at least on the 308 GT4 I got. No bubbles or holes, sharp edges, almost no mold lines...
Concerning quality and details, I'd say the kit is on a Fujimi level (not Tamiya of course).

I can't really judge the general fitting yet, and of course it's resin, which makes it a lot harder to correct and assemble.
And I found it's impossible to use masking tape, despite thoroughly washing the parts and cleaning them with a sanding sponge, as even primer just won't stick well to the surface.

Concerning quality and details, I'd say the kit is on a Fujimi level (not Tamiya of course).



Good news that they improved the quality. My jarama was so bad. Some details are almost melted. Here some sample photos:

By the way, the PE parts are awesome.

Airfix is making new great models for plane lovers as I am. This little cutie is a masterpiece.
