In Topic: 1950's Car Test

I got 85% but I'm happy with that.   What struck me is the ones that I didn't get were cars that didn't interest me while growing up.   I'll tell my wife about this tonight and hopefully she will stop saying that I know everything about old cars.   I'll use you 100%ers to prove that I don't know everything.

I'm not sure they are really doing the contest with us in mind.   They know we are going to buy the kits that interest us.   They also probably know that the quality builders from this forum and the major contest around the county will win but I think their main goal is to get new people involved.   That is one thing that I think we all want to happen so for me, I'll buy a kit that I normally wouldn't and enter just to support their cause.

If you haven't seen them here is the link




1st question.   At the bottom is a list of kits.  I compared them to the Revell website and none of them are listed.   Yes, there are Vipers, Challengers and GT 500 on the website but none of them match the product numbers listed in the rules.  


2nd question or maybe a suggestion.   Read the rule for the novice class.  Taken at face value, people like Larry Booth, probably Randy Derr and a whole lot of top builders don't finish 10 models in 3 years.  I once built 26 models in one year.  I wanted to enter every class in our club contest.   They were all junk but by the rules that would make me a professional builder. 


Reguardless of the rules, I'm still going to enter and support them for trying to build the hobby.  That is if I can figure out which kits I can use.

Well, I just read all the posts and I agree with some, disagree with others and don't understand a few.  BUT I still get excited when Stacy sets down at the end of each show and is surrounded by models and does the "viewer car" segment.    Then he always tells the audience to get out there and build something and on a recent show he said if you can build a full size car then get a model and build it.   Thank you Stacy and Revell for trying to get more people involved in this hobby.   To me it's worth buying a kit that I normally wouldn't, building it and entering to help support the cause.
