  1. 10 good years, I hope. Cheers to you!
  2. @Yoshimitsu, in case you haven’t seen this! Dash Emperor in Cup Noodle garb. https://www.facebook.com/208099459316998/posts/pfbid0e6BdkeVV9cngcBeWh7awp4j3d5UNnac2MXPbd1S8ah6X8xGyqxtuHubFqwkKKJukl/?app=fbl
  3. Expecting my MCI decals in the post any day now… excited that I may be able to make progress over the festive period.
  4. You’re living a fantasy, mate! See previous posts for far more realistic scenarios.
  5. A few years back, Tamiya issued a counterfeit warning about this item. Perhaps you have a bootleg? Useful to have it without the sMike window, I reckon!
  6. Just bumping this so it stays in the front page! I can’t help (not in US) but I’m very appreciative of @Mokei Kagaku’s FB updates and so I hope someone can offer support here.
  7. Thanks Matthias! Doing the decals is super fun for me, and connected to my profession. If you ever need some custom Avante decals yourself, I’m happy to help. Now hat I have most of the fonts identified, it’s pretty quick. Let me know
  8. Also placed an order from MCI. Thanks, Nate! Such good service.
  9. Finished designing decals for my Avante x Gulltech project. As usual. great fun figuring out the fonts, spacing, shadows and other details. The font used for 'Being nuts is neat' on the Avante rear wing is LEGOTHIC BOLD, in a stencil effect version of this font from 1972. The ‘g’ has been customised to shrink the descender and the ear. Whole thing is slanted to 14 degrees. I picked up on that style for some of this lettering. Apols for light rudeness in language!

  11. @Tomason the prices for cars depends a lot on the specific model and its age. Many cars have been re-released, and newer ones tend to be worth less. As a rule, anything made in Japan tends to be be older, and worth more. Anything from the 80s new in box is a gold mine. 90s a bit less so but still valuable. After that it depends in rarity and how iconic the kit is. Some kits were much lower volume or have never been re-re’d, so worth more. I too would be interested in seeing a complete list!
  12. Super Champ and Egress would make a great pair, kind of bookending the series. The seriousness and aggression of the Egress is ripe for chibification! In case Twitter is still a thing when you read this, this one will do for now: Also gonna chuck in this link from Tamiyablog: https://tamiyablog.com/2021/09/how-to-make-your-own-polycarbonate-body-video-example-for-tamiya-gf-01cb/ It’s been a while since the last ones were released. No mention of one at the recent hobby show, so perhaps an announcement in the spring. Hope so.
  13. Chucking in a suggestion of the GF-01 chassis (Comical Avante, Comical Hotshot if he wants buggy looks). Funny saying it, but perhaps too childish for your eight year old 😂. Anyway, my take is that these represent a very different feel from the Suoer Dragon in terms of looks, height and abilities. But still buggies, and still super fun. You can scoot these round a car park against the super dragon, or take them for something like proper off roading (great for a walk in the countryside). Have fun!
