In Topic: Revell '41/'43 Willys Pickup Gasser

15 May 2013 - 03:53 PM

My Hobby Shop ordered the Revell and the Monogram but they haven't arrived yet-- I've been waiting for these kits for a long time (early 90's)- the only problem is they'll cost 40 bucks!  OUCH.  I want 10 of them but I won't spend that.  I do have a bunch of R/c new in box stuff I'd trade for them.


In Topic: What did you get today?

15 April 2013 - 08:27 AM

I tried to find the other topic like this but I guess I didn't spend enough time trying so I'm lazy or in a hurry. Don't know which.

 

One of the reasons I came on board here was to gain more knowledge about  model kits. I also like to look for old kits I used to have, be in awe of some of the builds, and to talk to people with my same interest  =model cars.

 

So.. I'm hitting the flea markets looking for kits and diecasts and not really having a lot of luck but now and then I stumble onto to some stuff .

 

I'm not into re-sell. I'm not looking for what the stuff is worth but like I said - I'm into knowing whatever I can learn about the kits I find AND how rare or whatever they may be.

 

These are some of my recent purchases- so if you are into it , let me know what you think or know. I appreciate it.

 

1977 Capri Group II    2108  Monogram Factory sealed

 

1989 Ford GT-40  #2 (blue one)  7130  Revell  Factory sealed

 

Jo-Han Turbine Car GC300  -  don't know if it's original issue or how to tell if it is. The plastic seems pretty old.

 

1982 Mustang Imsa Miller Beer  2296 Momogram

 

70's or 80's Miss Budwiser Hydroplane "Bernie Little" - white plastic- no box- missing parts

 

1/12 Chips Motorcycle - built missing parts (not many)

 

1/16 57 T-Bird AMT? Built

 

 

 


In Topic: 1/16 MPC Nascar Petty Charger; a kit change just announced

02 April 2013 - 06:26 PM

I enjoyed building the Dukes Charger but I'm not sure I could want to get back into all the prep and bad fit etc. I would hope the Petty wouldn't be as bad. The one guy talks about flash. I had to touch every part on the car (Dukes) as far as the flash, I don't think one part had no flash--oh well I guess if you want to do it you do it and get the job done. I ended up making interior door panels out of plain plastic sheet like a stock car has for the Dukes kit. Things just didn't want to fit.


In Topic: What's considered the 'Honus Wagner' (rarest) of model kits

Yes that's the Demo Derby car ! Nice. I haven't seen that for a long time !!! Thanks for posting it.

 

As far as the 240 Z- all I remember is that the box or something could be made into a garage for the car. I bought the kit back in the early 80's. The guy said I should buy it because one day it will be rare. This could be the day. AND I don't have the kit. Go figure.

I had a Datsun 240Z (I believe) that came with a garage. Never even close to seeing one of those again. Another was a 1/32 Demolition Derby car in blue plastic-from the 60's. Anyone heard of these?
