With a Surfboard, and what look like 2 Skate boards, I would Bet that Yes it is

an RC Helo.

And, Yes, I too would Love to find some of these!!!!

Actual car was a 50 though.

Larger parking lights and different trunk and side trim details.

 

Does Modelhaus offer the grill from the Aurora Mod Squad woody??

That would be correct.

And I have read that the MPC Snap Mecrusy Police kit has the 50 Side trim

 

I have the decals for this one too.

 

I have the Classic Metal Works Diecast (Likely what this kit is from)

In a Cream Close to that!!!

Might use the decals on it


In Topic: 1970 Toronado

Try this again!!!!

 

I LOVE this one!

One of my Favorite cars the Toronado!!

 

I have 3 of this kit. 2 are Jo-Han USA Oldies re-issues, the other an AMT boxed Original!

The AMT is a restoration project, the 2 Jo-Han are unbuilt.

 

I also have a 72 I have been trying to restore. Used parts from a 75/76 Eldorado 

(All the front suspension)

 

I know Jo-Han issued the 66 First, but did they update it to 67 Spec's? or leave it as

a 66 And allow AMT to issue it with 67 box art??

My MPC 67 has the front corner side lights that the AMT boxed Jo-Han doesn't!!

 

I have a few of the Eldorados too

I built the 70 shortly after it was Re-issued, and have another unbuilt.

I have 2-3 unbuilt 76's too.

And a few 71-74's.

One will eventually be a 73 Indy Pace car!!

 

With a ll that I have, I don't recall paying much attention to the engine markings.

I would not be surprised to see them crossed over though.

Most of the rest of the chassis parts Are The same tool anyway!!!


In Topic: Coker Tires philosophy, from the latest Issue of HRD

I am almost betting, That Revell never had a problem with Firestone demanding Increased fees

like Goodyear.

It appears that most tires that are now Blank were All formerly Goodyear branded.

 

I have the Cali-Wheels issue of the 60 Impala has the Firestone Wide-White wall insert tires!!

Sadly, all issues of the 59 Impala have the Old Generic No tread detail white wall inserts

from OLD 50's/60's Monogram kits!!!

 

I have not been able to get a recent re-issue of either 59 Caddy kit. Did they remove the

BF Goodrich Silvertown labels on those??

Sounds like the same tires from the Cali Wheels issue of their 60 Impala.

 

I have one and they Are Firestones!!!

 

If the next version of this IS a Convert. I prefer a 50!!!

INDY 500 anyone?!!!!
