Im sorry if I sound stupid but I have seen a few terms pertaining to how you guys plan to build a project that im not quite understanding. I think OOB meens out of box rite? But what is this curbside? There has been a few others that escape me at the moment. So please don't beat on me to bad for not knowing im just realy curious. Thanks in advance

OOB= Out of box

OOP= out of production

curbside= no engine, molded in hood.

BMF= Bare Metal Foil.

 

Those are all I got off the top of my head.

Ok so what would you call this "uptown dodge mmagnum R/T" that I just picked up it has a bunch of premade movable parts like doors hood and rear hatch BUT the motor is basicly a single molded piece that you can only see if you open the hood? Oh and im kinda thinking of turning it into an el camino type thing lol

A toy.   Not a very accurate kit.

It really is a toy, same goes for the Caddy kit, the Chrysler 300/the Escalade, and the Super Bee Charger, all toys pretending to be a model kit


Not all kerbside kits have molded in hoods, most do yes, but there are some like the AMT promo Chevy trucks that have a separate hood, and a lot of the Japanese kerbside kits have separate hoods too

"Junk", "Not a real MAGNUM", "ripoff". :D  I only say not a real MAGNUM because it's a wagon and never should have been given that name. ;)

And don't confuse the Uptown Magnum kit w/ the Magnum SRT8 kit being reissued next month...the full detail SRT8 kit is very nice, the Uptown kits seem very cheesy to me with the goofy sissors doors and oversized wheels and tires..they remind me of cheesy Jada diecast, very toy-like.

It happens to all of us. We all have kits on our shelves that turned out to suck. Use it to practice your skills on.
