In Topic: What will you be building during the coming Winter months?

17 November 2014 - 01:05 PM

I took this year off as movie prop and my being published three different times has had me on a small tour of colleges and medical office facilities sharing on subject completely un related to plastic  models . I have several service stations I have wanted to do and the decision to delve deep headlong into another is daunting . What plastic kits I actually do construct must relate to what ever building I actually build . Who knows , I may decide to do a Sonic drive in .......................

In Topic: Do you have kits that you avoid building?

why would you want to build kits you don't want to build? use them for parts or sell or give them away. life is too short, build what you like, that's my advice

In Topic: What Model Disappointed You The Most Once You Opened The Box?

That dubious honor is still the 1960 Bonneville hard Top by Trumpiteer. I bought this kit on a members magazine revue . Yeah, he revued the Convertible with it's "Aftermarket " interior . Needless to say , should I ever meet him, I'm going to demand a FULL explanation of how he could have written such blatant lies in the competing model magazine of it's time . In the words of the music group, the Who , "Won't get fooled again ! "


In Topic: How many Wagons and Woodie kits out there? Yer on yer own on this one.

Originally, this 1953 Plymouth Belvedere wagon was a P M C promotional . They were made alongside a 1957 Ford Wagon which is the body from Jimmy Flintstone . These cars had no interior and came without back in 1957 without chrome parts or clear windshields . They were later sold in 5-.10 stores , ( Roses ,G C Murphy's , WT Grant's and Woolworth's ) as un assembled , usually retailing for about .98c.

 

This is a resin copy of the Plymouth . I got it from a departed member here years back and scratch built the needed pieces .
