Shoutbox

Chuck Most: I just bought another Tamiya Grand Cherokee I don't need, so I'm gonna see if I can make something happen... ;) Feb 5, 2014 2:24:44 GMT -5
gray07: i have the lindberg one Feb 5, 2014 16:40:43 GMT -5
Plowboy: Are those Cherokees pretty decent kits Chuck? I've seen them a few times on the 'bay. But, haven't pulled the trigger yet. I have a promo that's 1/18-1/20 scale. Feb 5, 2014 19:23:54 GMT -5
Chuck Most: Well.... engine sucks, axles suck, suspension sucks (it has this gimmicky working setup with real springs held in place by screws, and not s convincingly as the Revell Wrangler). Feb 6, 2014 7:50:28 GMT -5
Chuck Most: But the body and interior look good, and the engine looks okay once it's crammed into the engine bay. Feb 6, 2014 7:51:16 GMT -5
Plowboy: I've thought about scratchbuilding a Cherokee Sport body. It would be pretty easy. Just about every body panel on it is flat. Doing the interior would be the thing that would kill it for me. Feb 6, 2014 10:32:27 GMT -5
jeffs396: X2 Roger...A Jeep XJ would be a GREAT seller as a kit (styrene OR resin). The 1:1s owners enjoy very healthy aftermarket support, a scale replica IS in demand! Feb 6, 2014 23:08:44 GMT -5
Chuck Most: I'd have rather seen an XJ than a Grand in kit form, really. That or a Commanche. Feb 7, 2014 7:28:07 GMT -5
Plowboy: So would I. If I still had a real one setting around, I'd try to do an XJ body. I should have kept the last one I had instead of selling it. Feb 8, 2014 13:54:16 GMT -5
Chuck Most: Sold my '84 Pioneer back in '05... still kicking myself over that. Feb 9, 2014 8:11:32 GMT -5
Plowboy: I had a '94 and a '97. The '97 was pretty cool when I got done with it. I should have kept it. I only had around $1700 in it. Feb 9, 2014 11:06:10 GMT -5
Chuck Most: Mine had the pukey old Pontiac 2.5 four and the Pugeot five-speed, and the four-wheel drive never worked when I bought it. Still loved the darned thing, and it never got stuck in deep snow. Feb 11, 2014 2:59:25 GMT -5
gray07: i had a 89 lifted XJ, traded it for a baja bug, miss my jeep Feb 11, 2014 13:23:11 GMT -5
Chuck Most: I had grand plans for mine... lift, 4.0 swap, new paint, the works. Never did any of it... Feb 12, 2014 8:15:57 GMT -5
Chuck Most: Even had the chance to get a wrecked (but savable) '88 with a 4.0/automatic for $500, but missed out on that. Feb 12, 2014 8:20:45 GMT -5
randx0: Pinewood derby season is over , I'm back on the community build ! Mar 23, 2014 19:16:54 GMT -5
jeffs396: Sounds GOOD Randy, wish I had more free time to build...soon hopefully ::) Mar 25, 2014 21:08:41 GMT -5
psshhhht: so what's this "Shoutbox" for/about? Mar 31, 2014 20:28:05 GMT -5
randx0: just to chat or whatever. this way you don't have to go to a specific thread and everyone will see it . Apr 1, 2014 11:50:36 GMT -5
psshhhht: cool, thanks :) Apr 6, 2014 20:01:14 GMT -5
