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

19 August 2014 - 07:54 AM

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 ! "

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 .
