In Topic: how many 1970's comets/mavs would you buy if a new kit was issued

21 February 2012 - 06:53 AM

Since I own a 1973 Maverick, I would buy a kit of that car. However, I doubt we will ever see one, they just are not popular enough. And, when I was briefly involved with JoHan, we looked for the stock tooling to the 1970 Maverick and 1971 Comet. It did not exist! That kit was the first one Okey had planned to reissue, as that tooling ranked right up there with the Turbine car for accuracy. And no, I still have not been able to find a resonably priced kit of the 3 in 1 Maverick or Comet! :unsure: :( :angry:

In Topic: GAH! I just can't do it.

I'm going to be contrary on this one. I've been modeling for most of my 56 years. The last thing I finished was in 1988! Since then, I've been a reluctant kit collector! The thing was, I won some contests in the mid '80's and winning trophies became primary to just having fun with models. Now,I have lived with this nonsense enough, and am currently setting up a new shop since I got married and moved to Indiana last October. I got bogged down and lost scope of what model car replication was all about. When I get my shop finished, I am going to just build when I want to, my style, and comfort level. And remember this, every model we build began as a box stock kit!

Yes, yes, yes! I think all these kits should be reissued! The MPC Cobra II,Pacer,Pinto wagon,Pinto hatchback,Vega,and Shove-it (Chevette, to those that were not in the car business, back then),and the AMT Pacer wagon, all stock and custom build versions!

This is a great build! I do not think the boat is out of scale, and if it is, so what. It looks good, and that's an attractive color combination. Very well done! B) :lol: :D
