Race Car Model Kits


A quick mention of what's shaping up here at Rocketfin Hobbies.

I had an email from a Customer with a good idea, so I thought I would give it a try. I've lumped all the U.S. race car models in to their own section. There are a lot of model cars of race subjects that don't exactly fit into a Ford, Chevy or Dodge category, or say, the F1 section. An Indy Car model is a god example. Or an IMSA car model. So now these kits, and a lot of other types of race cars, have their own section. Race car models are usually a pretty good challenge, they are all somewhat different.

From a DTM car to a WRC Rally model, with the exotic engines, roll cages, and racing quipement, they're not always the easiest models to build, they will test your skills But for those who like European race car kits, now you can see them all at one time. I hope it makes it easy on the model race car fans who visit Rocketfin. Also, by pulling some of those from the other categories, that will allow those to be more focused, and the pages to load faster with what you want to see.

Some of you may have noticed an expansion of the Military Truck Models section. I like these model kits, I have a few of my own to build. ( Watch for some of them in some future books ). I know there are a lot of 1/25 and 1/24 scale truck model fans, but those are quite large when assembled. I kind of like the smaller 1/35 kits a bit. There're also a lot of accessories for truck / military kits, so you can really pack on the supplies and cargo, and even make some cool dioramas. Military trucks don't always have to be built military, many of them have civilian uses as well, so that's an option. One I want to explore. Check out all the new bulldozer kits! very cool models.

I've also expanded the model display cases, and the model bases. Building a model is great, but showing it off is fun too, so it's best to use a case or make a base display to bring the model to life. I think you'll see some interesting choices there. Check them out.

I hope you're enjoying what ever model kit you're building. This is summer, so normally a little less modeling gets done, since everyone is ouside taking in the sun and fresh air, and that's good. They don't call it summer break for nothing. So get outside, maybe visit some car shows and air shows, take some pictures for some winter model projects, and do some things with your family.

Have a great modeling day!
