In Topic: What Do You Want To See Next?

Today, 08:15 AM

This is just another wish list.  Perhaps the manufacturers should set up their own threads for this purpose, no? I am aware that some of them do read the forum, but they shouldn't have to weed through stuff when, at times, all they want is data.

In Topic: AMT 68 Roadrunner in need of an opinion

It's your build, do whatever floats your boat.  Me, I'm from the "old school" days of street machines, so I'm doing my '68 with big and littles on 5-spoke, unpolished Americans and a nice, nose-down rear-up attitude. (you can see it in "On the Workbench").  But that's not to say that I wouldn't consider another build of the same kit in another genre.  Each has it's own appeal to different people.

In Topic: AMT '74 Plymouth Barracuda snaptite, another quick build!

Yesterday, 07:37 AM

This kit was a feature of a make and take in which my club participated back late last century.  I remember it as, without a doubt, one of the most terrible kits that I have ever encountered in my life.  I had one in my personal stash and gave up on it when it needed too much attention.  I could think of more than a few other kits as a quick build, but that's just my opinion.  IF I had to do it all over again, and add some detail, I would use the new Revell 'Cuda chassis- it is much nicer than the '83 vintage Ertl Challenger chassis.  I'm gonna watch this build.  Good luck with it.

Diesel exhaust, be it from a deuce and a half, a backhoe or a boat.  Hot metal.  Fried electronic components.  Two-cycle exhaust, with the gas/oil mixture.  Testors liquid cement.  Testors small, square bottle enamels always bring me back to the early '60's...
