Um, he has also claimed with each eBay listing that it was his "last" kit. He somehow always finds more  :huh: A number of months ago, he sold his "last kit" for about $650.00. Personally, I cannot justify that type of price and I do not like one bit that he keeps listing more as "the last." I've been on his facebook a bunch of times and he seems really greedy. He actually is/was looking for someone with deep pockets to pay for his move from Hawaii back to the mainland for him. He is also quite negative in nature and blames everyone for all of his woe's and sorrow's in life. He wont be seeing a thin dime from me.

Well i am un-aware of the nature of Steve Scott...and if what you claim is True and Accurate....Then i stand behind ya..

 

Thanks for the Info...

 

But Still would be nice to have... "Only on the grounds"....That this is (and will be) his Last Personal Kit.....And i would have to have that on a Legal Forum..And if he was to Re-nig on the deal.....I would...... well you know B)

 

Cheers...Don

As much as I would like to have one of these kits because I think it is neat looking. I will pass on the $750.00 price tag. No way would I pay that much lol. Would be sweet of they brought theae back out again.

Isn't there a thread around here about the this kit and the dilemma of getting it done.

 

From what I remember, the molds exist and the deal fell through between the old Revellogram management and Scott.

 

And no, I am not that desperate for a kit I barely like.

In the most recent issue of the 'other' mag, Tim Boyd says that the tooling was indeed scrapped in the late '70's. But who knows? They completely retooled a couple of the old Tom Daniel kits- maybe the same could happen for this.

Maybe it could happen but I kinda don't think so.  I don't know all the ins and outs but Steve is on record saying that he doesn't want "just royalties" and he doesn't want to work with Revell or AMT.  How he figures to make the kit happen, I haven't a clue.

Guys....I was told this directly, in writing, by one of the most senior people at Revell Monogram, within the last 12 months. 

 

I've known him for 35 years and he's never lied to me yet.  

 

For what it's worth....TIM

I would buy one if they were reissued. Kind of like to see it in 1/8 scale. I won't hold my breath.

Let me introduce you to Chuck D.

Steve Scott has lowered the price. The original listing was starting at $1000.00, its been up for about a month maybe a little longer.

I have always wanted the Uncertain-T kit. But no way would I pay the megabuck prices being asked. Besides, look at the T for what it is... a lot of (mostly) flat surfaces. I hope to scratch build a version someday. It wouldn't need to be 100% exact to please me. I have photos of the 1:1, and photos of the kit parts. The trick is to find a cowl, and forming the changing radius of the cabs rear vertical corners. Got to love the challenge, tho.

If I were interested in building a model similar to the Uncertain T show car, I'd probably start with this.

But I'm not.  The Uncertain T just doesn't appeal to me.
