I read the thread of budget minded modelers and I got to thinking of these .
These are all 'older' built kits.
And I keep these around just to remind me of my early days with model cars. Basically to show what it was like , with sewing thread for plug wires, silver paint for window trim . Or if we had to hand paint lettering if when some lettering or sponser decal wasn't avail in this or some other kit. I do think about pulling them apart from time to time, but they always end up just getting dusted and put back in the shelf
The Schartman Maverick and the Vanke 1972 Duster I bought off ebay exactly the way they are shown here. The S+M Roadrunner I built ,,,a LOOOOONG time ago. Like when you could go into any local toy store and buy it off the shelf.
None would ever stand a chance on a contest table today, but none of them will probably ever be redone either.
PS, if YOU have any old builts so show, post them up and lets see 'em
