In Topic: what's the one kit u would love to see reissued?

Last issue I saw is the Connoisseur Classics version by AMT. Fairly easy to find and don't command to high of prices last I looked. Yes the Panel would be good to have again however the mold was turned into the Barnabus Van and I think there is no turning it back into the Panel.

 That was repopped by AMT not all that long ago, and is available on eBay. I'd love to see the '33 Panel Truck version back, though.

The MPC pro stock series. I do have a couple of then in the stash but would like to build them all. The 68/69 MPC Coronets would be cool also. Most of the original 700 numbered funny cars ect. Some have been reissued, the Cougar, the GTO and I think one other. Actually all of the 700 series models from MPC.

In Topic: Moebius `65 Plymouth Satellite

17 December 2014 - 06:15 AM

64 1/2 actually. The Max wedges ran from 62 into 64. With the introduction of the race hemi's came the single headlight grills. SO, if they do a street stock 383 car, it can easily be converted to a hemi car using parts box pieces from Revell or AMT for the hemi parts before Mobius gets around to it. Probably most of those pieces are already in process or done. I haven't read the whole thread, so I don't know what they are doing with it but it would be nice to have a 6 cyl plain jane car. (which i want to say is what the max wedge and race hemis started with anyway but could be wrong) I myself cannot wait to get my hands on one. Just the fact that there will be a 65 in PLASTIC instead of most of the crappy resin conversions (there are a few good ones however) will make me do the happy dance! With the introduction of this, there is everything out there to do a version of each max wedge/race hemi car ever built from Ma Mopar. (66 would need a conversion from the 67 GTX but the basics are there)  Some are harder to find such as the Johan kits but it gives us something to work with. It's been one of my goals actually

In Topic: What's the most expensive kit you've ever bought?

17 December 2014 - 05:42 AM

Most expensive for me would be this 1/12 Tamiya 935 Porsche that is in process. (and will be for a long time lol) It was 600 shipped off Epay with the SMS set. By the time it is said and done it will be a lot more than that. There's roughly 500 bucks worth of RB Motion stuff going into it also.

For this, what little bit of remaining sanity has left the building.........
