I also got my issue today, and I had no idea I even had a subscription!  :o

 

My lovely wife Pam, after our trip to the Carolina Classic NNL, remembered me saying I could never find the magazine anywhere, and four of my models were photographed at that contest. So being the great wife she is, got me a subscription for our anniversary!

 

Yup, I've got a great wife, I love ya Pam!  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

       Had to travel over the hill to Sierra Vista, AZ yesterday for a Tire and discovered there's a Hobby Lobby over there now! OH Boy it's now less than 60 miles to a real Hobby Shop!

Hey Joe.  Company is ARII. Looks to be a decent kit but don't know how it will build up. Unlike a lot of kits from Japan this one does have and engine and opening doors. I does however have a less than great interior and chassis. Exhaust molded in and it looks as if at one time the kit was offered motorized. All in all not a great kit but it may build up as a OK display piece. We shall see if I ever get to it.

I found this in the bottom of a junk box at the Liars Show last Saturday. All parts are there, including some of the broken windshield frame. Good news is that both fin tips are intact, which are usually the first thing to go on these.. never been painted or sanded,  price $5  for a decent parts car / rebuilder.

1/24 scale Volvo. It's missing a headlight  on the left side but otherwise complete and it's dirty like it's been sitting in a junkyard a while. But who would pass it up for $2?

After losing out (as in more than I was willing to pay) on a couple of these earlier in 2013, I managed to find this one by accident trying to describe the box art to someone else.  Being the first one I've seen in months, I bid on it on a lark, and committed a little highway robbery in the process as these rarely even start below $20, let alone winning it for less than $15.

 

Still don't understand why this, and the '58 that proceeded it have never been reissued.

Thanks for that update. I wonder if the body can be pur on revell 70 chassis?

Cool. Does it have a one piece body like the '58 or a multi like the '60?

Joe.

Despite the Monogram box, this was the "modified" reissue of the 1958 Corvette Revell ProModeler tool.  So it's the new (well late-90's new) tooling, one piece body.  Perhaps it's never been reissued since it was some what of an odd duck (read slow sales) being a new Revell tool, released in 2002, in a Monogram box.  Shades of things to come it can be built as a bone stock '59 or has some flame decals and the large diameter wheels -- prelude to the "California Wheels" marketing line of kits.

I like the wheels and tires in that 'Vette kit and the engine...it wasn't a common kit back in that day IIRC.  I remember getting one at my LHS in Colorado Springs right around the time I moved to Denver.

eBay has been busy taking my money! Some more Japanese cars.

Some NASCAR's, some of which might end up as flared fendered street cars.

And some American cars. Did the Capri when I was a kid, so call it a nostalgia buy. More VIP style wheels.

So the GTO is unbuilt, actually it's Sealed Inside and that will be built either Factory Stock or a mild Street Machine.

 

'62 Bel Air is nicely built, as is the Chevelle and El Camino:

Also there was the Flintstones '31 Ford Chop Top Resin body... B)

 

 

And then I bought this:
