In Topic: 1:1 Cars that had an effect on you, and why.

19 October 2014 - 10:34 PM

When I was a kid my uncle Dave lived next door & he raced an AH Bugeye Sprite.  He would drive my aunt crazy by rebuilding his motors on the kitchen table every winter & use up all her cupcake pans to hold various parts (nuts, bolts, springs, etc).  He took my cousins & I to Elkhart Lake when the track first opened back in the early '60s & I have been going back there every year since.  I still recall the time he decided to use aircraft fuel during practice at the June Sprints.  The ensuing fire became the topic of conversation at family gatherings for years after.  


In Topic: AMT / Round 2 Bring back some more of those great old Double kits.

I've got most of the double kit; the '32 sedan body shell is dead stock other than a couple tiny locator pins for the rear fenders - you can flick 'em off with a fingernail.  

 

I compared the '32 sedan body to the one in the Switchers kit & there is a definite chop to the top.  Only about a scale 2" or so.

In Topic: Hemi Under Glass model MPC 1/25. Any good?

07 September 2014 - 02:04 PM

The R2 re-issue is the `66 kit. The initial run had the incorrect box art showing the `69 version (flat hood w/ peaked header panel and no hood call-outs) which was an MPC kit.

 

But why is the re-issued kit labeled MPC when the original was AMT?

Not to change the subject, but I have run unto this AMT/MPC issue myself.  I purchased a "Switchers" '32 ford sedan/phaeton on Ebay that I'm currently working on that has no company ID on the outside of the box.  The instructions mention AMT & Fun Dimensions (I think) but the underside of the interior is marked MPC.  Who's tooling is this?   Please move this if I'm not posting it where it belongs.
