Lordairgtar -

Don't get me wrong - I think it's truly UGLY, but it's an excellent example of what the kit manufacturers considered "hip" back in the day, and what they thought would help sell kits.

Like Tom Geiger mentioned recently, this might be a candidate for my own little museum of model car "artifacts" from the 60s.

I we'll remember the days when I used all the "custom" parts and every other doo-dad in the kit and stuck them on the model

 

 

Oh geez, ToyLvr, that Caddy is not very attractive with those custom parts, but a good reference to what someone in the industry thought custom cars should be.

 

cool oldie!  I'd clean it up and keep it 'as is'.  It's just one old time capsule from our youth.  And that's the fun of it. Yes, some of these are ugly to our learned eyes today, but that was the style and fad back then. So ugly is part of the charm.

 

My interest in the old customs goes back to seeing Dave Shulkas's original Bobtail Cat Valiant that was on the cover of Car Model number one in 1962.  It was a mess, covered with gunk and blown apart. My friend Al Raab took on the task of restoring it and since I collect all things Valiant, I was called upon to donate some parts, which was an honor.  Upon examining it there were a few things I noticed. First how crude the build actually was. This was a very well known model in it's day, so it stands today as a benchmark of how far our craft has come since then.  Second, I had collected a bunch of old Valiants and was always perplexed as to why several had the rear of the body lopped off. Upon seeing the Bobtail,  I knew why. Those builders were following this build from the article in the magazine, and the reprints of the article AutoWorld would send out with the kit! I found it interesting how much influence this had back in those days.  So I decided that those bobtails also deserved to be restored.  And off we went into the Olde Kustom Kollection!

Just got home from the train show. managed to sell a good deal of stuff. Also scored these. The 2nd place was for Deadmans Curve dio, and the 3rd for the Monster racing Slot Track building. Funny thing was I didn't enter the slot track but put it out for display only.

Also bought a load of new stuff, but have to get pics of it all later. Right now I have to tend to sore feet.

Checked an estate sale listing last night and saw these:

Attached File  1.jpg   99.55KB   0 downloads

... and went by this morning; grabbed 'em both.

 

'66 Wen-Mac Mustang: didn't have one when I was a kid and never found a cheap one until now ($12.00). Missing the steering wheel, shifter, air cleaner and one exhaust and has a small chip out of the trunk lid, otherwise decent.

 

'62 T-bird promo: Four bucks, but the body was shot (A-pillars half gone, chunks out of both fins and a big piece of the LF fender gone) so I salvaged the wheels, tires, axles and glass to fix a '61 T-bird promo.

Tom,  I have an IROC Z and the same kit that are unbuilt and IMO I think they are very well detailed for 1/8 scale.  I do have plan's on building mine.

Hope you enjoy it.  Is yours unbuilt?  Do you plan on building it?

Here's whaty i got today:

 

SAM_0321_zps74153822.jpg

 

Anyone ever used this one?

 

I was looking for a bottom fed AB with a medium needle, at 1st glance this one looks to me like a Badger200 but with the alclad bottles (I already have a set of the "badger" bottles and at 69.99 the price seemed right to me! 

 


I think it will complete my H&S Evolution perfectly!

 

Cheers!

I got a new avatar.  He was on old 60s kit instructions.  A bit too small to really see it as an avatar though!

Interesting, Tom. Which company put that on their sheets?

And a few things from eBay. The Taurus I got mainly for UPS decal for another project. Whole kit shipped was less than just the decals. You can never have too many 60's Mustangs either. The MPC one is started but the other two are NIB.

A couple of rarer imports, also from eBay.

I'd have to check!  I scanned that one a long time ago because I thought it was cool.  It was an early 60s kit.  My thought was that was what the kit manufacturers thought of builders back then... little kids building while sitting on the floor!
