In Topic: What's the most copies of one model car kit bought for u guys?

14 July 2014 - 01:48 AM

I bought 4 of the re-issue 1/16th "Street charger", I have owned at least 4 AMT 1970 Impalas ... it is a model that for some reason I screw up constantly. I bought 4 1/16th 1957 vettes on ebay, then I do not know for sure but at least 10 Monogram nascar 89ish Tbirds in various boxings over the years.


I hoarded the Street Chargers since the tooling was going to be modified and never released again, and I planned to build several 1957 vettes but after I finished one, I did not want to do it again. 


Now do not get me started on Hasegawa 1/48 phantoms...

What a great idea. I actually do spend a fair amount of time going down the "youtube rabbit hole" finding covers of songs.


Many of my favorites have been posted in this thread already,such as the Sheryl Crow Walk away andVanilla Fudge's Keep me hanging on


Here are some of my favorites:


The one that got me started after watching the Concert For Bangladesh .. Leon Russel and with many others doing jumping jack flash:



How about the Temptations doing Eye of the tiger?



Or a very early Van Halen taking on Rainbow's Main on the silver mountain?

In Topic: 89 F150

Are you kidding me? I have the same project on my "get around to it list" I also have a black F-150 , except mine is not a 4x4 ... I also have a toolbox. Nice job on the model. Now if I can get the thing to stop blowing the brake light fuse it will be perfect.



In Topic: Can you advise me on how to fix an Estes rocket kit?

You should be able to salvage the kit, no problem. What kit is it?


There are many places you can get a new body tube.
