    Default Pearl BRX and Tama Crestar

    I set up my Masters BRX the other day and, to my surprised, I was extremely pleased with the setup. I've been toying around with my setup for MONTHS, but I think I'm going to keep this one for quite a while. It's very comfortable; everything's close at hand.. I'm really liking it. Anyway, here it is. There are also some shots of my Tama Crestar in Heather Metallic at the "White Trash Costume Party" I played. lol. That's the reason for all the red, white, blue, and camo.

    I don't think those are Crestars. I believe they're probably Granstars. Crestars were Tama's first acrylic kit back in the 80's.

    Either way, those are both very nice kits!

    Um, no, no they ARE Crestars, ..and Crestars were NOT Tama's first acrylic kit back in the 80's... You are incorrect both ways.

    My bad. They did have an acrylic kit of some sort back in the 80's. I just can't search it up at the moment.
