Way Long Shot - LF 1/24 ESCI BJ44 Kenia Safari Land Cruiser Kit

31 July 2014 - 07:05 PM

So I've been trying to locate the 1/24 ESCI Toyota BJ44 Land Cruiser Kenia (Kenya) Safari kit.  This is the one painted like a zebra with the roof rack.  Is this kit one of the Holy Grails and very hard to find or does someone have one they would be willing to part with.  Would even take a glue bomb.  Not seeing anything on evil bay.   Just seeing the Armed Pick-Up kit. 

Thanks for looking.

'47 Chevy 8-bolt steel wheels

21 July 2014 - 07:05 PM

I'm gathering up the pieces parts to start a conversion of the catch truck used in the move "Hatari!".  The John Wayne movie where they go out and capture African game for various zoos around the world.  This particular truck has a later style bed from an early 60's fleetline or some similar truck and 8 bolt wheels.  I have a cab that will work and I'm watching ebay for an early 60's fleetline donor kit.   Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any steelies with an 8-bolt pattern.  Any and all help would be massively appreciated.

 

Thanks

Best AC Cobra in 1/25 Scale

16 April 2014 - 06:47 PM

Tried a Google search to see if anyone compared the AMT to Revell kits or even a review on this website but came up empty.  It's possible I didn't go far enough but I'd like to know who makes the best AC Cobra kit in 1/25 scale.  Thanks for the help.

AMT Redline/Goodyear Polyglass Tires

19 March 2014 - 04:59 PM

So I just picked up the re-release of AMT's 68 Roadrunner kit and was blown away by the combination redline/Goodyear Polyglass GT tires that are in the kit.  I checked the Round 2 website and didn't see anything announcing a new tire pack that had these tires but would buy a dozen sets if they did.  Does anyone know if they plan to release these as a tire pack or if they are in any other kits?  May have to buy a couple extra Roadrunners just for these tires... Need some for my Goats.
