In Topic: '77 Volare Glue Bomb

Try eBay. The 1980 Volare kit was only done one year, in 1980.  There should be some around.  

"Fuzz Duster" , is the name bestowed upon MPC's 1980 Volare annual . Its box art is a *bit* misleading ; it features a customised version , but there's no mention of the stock building option (!)

It's moulded in black .

Reminds me of a story dad told, growing up during the depression a neighbor's tractor had an oil leak so he hung a tin can under it to catch the oil and would pour it back in ! Times were hard indeed.

Sounds like the Constant-Loss Lubrication of some Motorcycles !

It would appear that wikipedia has aligned constant-loss with total-loss . Certain motocycles (think : BSA) had a lubrication system which included a spoon which was used to refill the crankcase with oil , as those engines would leak like a sive .

On the other hand , there are the two-stroke Detroit Diesels ; those are 'Total-Loss' by nature .


In Topic: New AAR hood for the new Revell 1:25 scale Cuda kit

By all accounts , the AAR and Trans Am (Challenger) hoods would buckle , bend , warp , etc. , due to lack of reinforcement on their perimetre . Similar to the bending of the hoods of the 1973-1979 GM pickups ; no reinforcement .
