In Topic: 1961 Comet Promo - Need junk body with good roof

Today, 01:39 PM

I just found this old '61 Comet promo that, though I can't recall exactly when I got it, I do know that it was given to me by a man from Marysville, WA. from whom I used to buy models on a regular basis. That was well over 20 years ago and he was going to throw it away. So, having a real soft spot for star puppies and orphans, I brought it home and it has been sitting on the back of a shelf hidden behind an old wired remote control tin Ford tractor w/loader and back hoe. Neither item has been touched or moved in literally decades - probably in excess of 20 years. There were a couple of other surprises back there too.. stuff that I had forgotten that I have.

 

I am wondering of someone has a broken or badly hacked and customized scrap body from which I could remove the roof to put this car back together. It's missing the taillights as well and the rear bumper is broken but I will replace those from Modelhaus. The body is un painted and clean and too good to just toss. These are not my all time favorite car but it is old and that's good enough for yours truly as far as justifying the work to make something of it.

 

I will trade for a parts body shell - I do not expect it for nothing. It's just one of those models that not a lot of people appreciate if it beaten or if it a glue bomb. I am just 1961cometpromo1_zpsde86ae3e.jpghoping someone has what this one needs. :)

I have a warped 60 they share the same roof and glass...PM me Gary.

In Topic: Old 60 El Camino Questions

Today, 08:13 AM

Id build it as it originally was designed to be but you might try looking at the Revell 59 Impala and a 60 Bad Actor panel to make a stock one or close...far as the AMT 60 ElCamino I know one could try a AMT 59 Impala kit for parts too.


In Topic: Early Falcons

Today, 08:07 AM

I dig the Falcons up to 1969...the 60 and 61 look about the same far as I know of.
