Ford GT40 MkII '67 Daytona Version

01 April 2014 - 07:28 AM

Looking for any of the Daytona versions of Fujimi's MkII kits, but would prefer this kit (or just the decals from this kit).  Lots of stuff to trade.

'70/'72 Mercury Comet (Stock)

30 March 2014 - 04:23 AM

I acquired a Mercury Comet built-up and assumed it was Jo-Han's Pro-stocker.  But after comparing them, this body has all the body molding and scripts which the pro-stock does not  It includes the stock interior and the hood does not have the molded in hood pins.  Is anyone familiar with a stock body Comet kit?

Ford GT40 P/1005 '65 Le Mans

29 March 2014 - 04:25 PM

When I traded for the LS/Arii GT40 kit I was really hoping to build the '65 Daytona Winner (GT103).  Unfortunately after examining the kit and in particular the shape of the nose it was clear that it would take substantial work the make it look like GT103.  I dug through my reference material and searched the internet and came up with something that I think I can handle.  I intend to build P/1005 that was entered by Scuderia Filipinetti in '65 Le Mans.  The car only lasted until the 2nd hour but I think it is a nice looking car by a significant race team so I am going to give it a go.

This is the kit we are starting with.

I bought a kit recently with damaged photoetch.  It appears to be corroded.  Does anyone have any suggestions about how I might restore the photoetch?

The Decemberists: The Mariner's Revenge Song

Music seems to be popular sub-theme on the forum.   So I thought I would post one of my favorite bands and videos.  I'm sure it won't be everyone's cup of tea but give it a listen.
