At the risk of being labeled again,  I will post my latest acquisition.  This is a Premier 1960 Valiant kit that a buddy-0-mine in Arizona  picked up for me.  I already had another two of these, so why did I need another.. well first was the $10 price.  And second...

 

IMG_0338-vi.jpg

 

It's molded in a swirl-a-delic plastic.  The other two I have are molded in straight gray plastic. This one is different and cool.  Does anyone do a photo etch kit for this one?

 

IMG_0339-vi.jpg

 

and as far as Premier quality... look at these two sides, especially in the window area. Not even close.  Where Johans were done from factory blueprints, Premiers were done from memory!  And you guys have the nerve to complain about today's new models!  B)

 

So it's just another bit for the grand Valiant collection. Of course I'm not even going to attempt to build it.

Jesse, is the Blue Thunder Helicopter kit based on the move Blue Thunder.?? I have not seen that kit before.

It is more based on the T.V. Show 'Blue Thunder", which spun off the movie. But otherwise, it is the same chopper. Just needs a J.A.F.O.! LOL!

My haul from last Saturday-From the show in Sylvania I got a Fujimi GT40 and Lamborghini Diablo kit(which,I found out,is a screw together kit,not a gluer or a snapper),a Tamiya Porsche 956,3 Porsche 911 glue bombs,and some carbon fiber decal sheets.

On the way home I stopped at the Model Cave and picked up the Revell Red Bull RB8 (the S.Vettel version which I understand is now sold out),a Heller '03 Citroen Xsara rally car,and some Alclad black base,bright silver base and some ruby red iridescent paint.

Hey Tom,

 

I just "won" a Valiant on that famous 'bay site, and it does not look like that.

A rather crusty '62 Vair.

The previous owner did not use a lot of glue to install the 'Styline bit's, and it's mostly there. The paint is stubborn, as it was primered, so out came the sanding sticks. I am a little leary of using chemicals on old styrene. The front and roof are cleaned up. If things go well, I should be able to clean up the rear today. I have some Corvair parts in the stash, and I should be able to get this one back up to snuff. A friend of mine had one when I was a kid.

Tom, I have not seen that kitt before, older then me I am sure. Are they highly collectable??

 

I paid $10 which may tell ya something!

The Premier Falcon... Too short, too tall and too narrow. Otherwise it's great!

Their excellent Corvair.  No promo contracts here!

 

MVC004F-vi.jpg

 

 

MVC002S-vi.jpg

 

And the Rambler. Ugly as sin.  I'm surprised these models don't burn holes in their boxes!  But of course I own them, and many more. I find them interesting, and I grab them when I see them cheap.. or free.

 

Next time guys on the board start some heated debate thread about some miniscule thing on a new kit, I think I'll bomb the thread with these beauties!  :lol:

I've never encountered Premier kits, but I have encountered Palmer.  IMO the critical difference between such atrocities of the past is that those models that were toys aimed at kids while models today are aimed at an adult audience, so the bar for accuracy and quality is much higher. 

 

As far as the thread subject, I got my Missing Link resin '73 Chevelle yesterday..definitely worth the wait, a very nice piece.

They have arrived:

From ebay, I got some decent used wheelcovers and a used bumper/grille for the Continental, which is starting to regain its dignity after being dismantled and getting a purple bath:

Quarter panels are still an issue; compare it to a tired but uncut '62 body:

I'm watching another unpainted convertible body with a broken windshield frame; if I get it cheap I'll clip it from the rear doors back to make one good body.
