I stopped at an antique mall yesterday and found some neat books and four kits. The books are from the Henry Ford Museum gift shop. The kits are complete abs they were 35.00 for all four.

And you can't complain about that!   Three years ago I moved to PA from NJ and bought a bigger house. Much more room for the 'stuff'!

I had to share this with everyone. I`ve been looking for this truck for a while without much luck and then last week I found one on E-Bay that was open but the seller wasn`t too sure if all the parts were there and he wanted a silly amount for it. I almost bought it anyway but my gut said to stay away. I always go with my gut but I was still bummed to be so close yet so far away.

A couple hours later I stumble onto Deans Hobby Stop. Never been there before, seemed like a cool site, so I started poking around and lo and behold!!!! My holiest of grails still sealed and priced at a reasonable $24.99. I couldnt get out my Visa fast enough.

 

Its not anything ultra rare or exotic but has a lot of meaning to me. It was a gift to me when I was a little kid by a loved one that was an even littler kid who passed away at a young age. I still miss him very much. The original went through many renditions and I still actually have it but its no where near stock condition anymore. I have wanted to find one to build in its original form to honor his memory for quite a while, so to find this was one of the best gifts I could ever receive. I`m pumped!!

I confess. I had a tear in my eye when I opened this up for the very first time.

Cool story!  I wonder if one could combine this with Revell's 56 to make a Stock 55?.

As for making this one stock, yes, with minor modification to probably the frame I would say so . I made a near stock 53 Ford panel by using the A M T 53 running gear and the monogram, now Revell 55 panel body . The only issue I have with the Monogram - Revell Panel body is the top is too dang FLAT. The Pick up, kinda so ....................

Very cool! I like that we can connect memories to most of our models. Especially about good people in our lives.

On Saturday at Sylvania I scored 4 old AMT Indy car kits(3 McLarens and a Penske PC6), a Fujimi Ferrari Daytona Convertible Entusiast Model(the show car version with the oddball top)and a built up Texaco liveried Tamiya Ford Sierra for a total of $60.I didn't need the Ferrari but for the $20 price I couldn't pass on it.
