OK then, the gauntlet has been tossed down! Maybe not just yet...but my razor saw and Tenax glue stands ready. What shall I do with the extra nice spoked wheels, etc. included in the kit? And the carbine in the leather holster...well, most everybody has guns in Mogollon.

Hi Woodie :wave:

I'm sure you've seen this before. :shocked:

A lot less fragile than the MiniArt one...
...& you don't have to cut-off the super-nice photo-etched wheels. :w:

In this neck of the woods; about 1/3 the price of the MiniArt one, on evilBay. :P

You get a guy with a specialy shaped (_!_) with it...
...& a guy with an invisable-head; doing martial-arts !

(+ the carbine, for the heavily-armed Mogollonians !)

* Cement & paint not included.



Just a thought. L:

I got BOTH on my wish-list at the moment. :thumb:

My bench looks like I'm tryin' to start WWII or something ! :Salute:
I'm actualy tryin' to make a darn RAILROAD !

1:35 trains should be BANNED ! :old dude:

Totaly unsuitable for railroadin' ;)

Si.

:java::mex:

P.S. Just ruined the re-sale value on my On30 Porter...
...by bustin' off the whistle & BURNING the green box.

Oh well ... there's only one thing left for it now !!

Si-I agree about the Tamiya VS MiniArt kits..however, I already have the MA and would have to buy the Tam kit. Whacha gonna do? I really don't need any more bikes on the layout so this is a great way to get rid of unbuilt stuff. Sides' it will be cool...whenever I get to it.

Having started the Mini Art kit, I can tell you that it has some of the SMALLEST & FIDDLYEST parts I have seen and this thing is 1:35 scale! When I get through, it may NOT have every teeny little part on it...a couple joined the other "details" in the workshop carpet! With that said, I am determined to build this stinkin' thing. And NO, it will not be powered, just a piece of static "scenery" which will be lost somewhere out there on the layout. More later or when I get tired of this craziness.

Hi Woodie

Just give up NOW, before you go TOTALY INSANE !

First part I took off the sprue, for my MiniArt truck...
...BUSTED !...
...& I am pretty carefull these days.

You will end up with microscopic photo-etched parts...
...PERMANENTLY glued to your thumbs.

469 parts for a truck...
...are you sure ?

I'm gonna build a MiniArt Harley one day...
...just to know what INSANITY is like.

But for now; my suitable for ages 3+ Tamiya kit is in the mail.

The postman always rings twice

Cheers

Si.

This is what happens, throwing gauntlets around the place !

( don't try wearing them, whilst assembling the Harley )

I found the teeny parts in the carpet but will refrain from adding details that won't be seen anyway so it's all for naught! Those nice spoked wheels will look great at the Motor Bike shop, hanging on the wall. I forsee building the frame for the RR wheels from brass so the thing will be less prone to be mangled while I "finish" the job. Photos will be following after I finish this bottle of Jack Daniels...hic....

Woodie

BTW-my buddy Mopman says that I am already insane
