In Topic: HOBBY LOBBY- kits on sale

20 June 2015 - 12:00 PM

I agree JT that the stores know these folks are scamming them.  I've been building model car and trucks since 1958, and have built thousands over that period of time.  I can honestly say that I can only think of one or two kits that I've purchased that were defective.  Both cases have happened in the past 10 years and both times I contacted the model company to get replacement parts.

In Topic: HOBBY LOBBY- kits on sale

I picked up an AMT 359 kit on the clearance shelf at my local Hobby Lobby the other day that someone had bought and apparently needed only the wheels and tires, then brought it back.  It was complete except for the tires and wheels and was priced at $12.93.  Couldn't pass it up.  I've picked up other returned kits, mainly for parts, as the prices were too good to ignore.

4.7 replaced the 5.2 as the engine was about 60 pounds lighter and the design of the intake and heads improved fuel economy by roughly 4 mpg and torque curve was also flatter but came in at lower rpm.
