  1. I am looking to trade for the 1/25 front axle and tie rod piece from any of the AMT/Ertl 1955 or 1957 Chevrolet Cameo Pickup truck kits. These two pieces can be fresh-from-the-tree or from a built-up if in good, restoreable condition. Thanks!
  2. Spring Cleaning Time: Some 1/25 Kits Up-for-Trade

    UPDATE: Pickup kits and GTX are all traded. The '64 Impala and all items shown in the 2nd photo posted, (Nascar Mercury Cyclone and the 3 parts kits), are ready to find new homes. Some other things that I'm seeking: 1/25 AMT/Ertl 1966 Ford Mustang Hardtop body & hood, (with all chrome bumpers/grill/tailight pieces), glass and complete interior, (with tub, seats, dashboard, steering wheel and stickshift). 1/25 AMT/Ertl 1955 Chevrolet Cameo/or Stepside Pickup cab & hood, (with all chrome bumpers/grill/tailight pieces), glass and complete interior, (with tub, seats, dashboard, steering wheel and stickshift). Or, these same pieces from the 1/25 AMT 1957 Chevrolet Cameo Pickup kit. 1/25 AMT/Ertl 1958 Chevrolet Impala body, doors, hood, (with all chrome bumpers/grill/tailight pieces), glass and complete interior, (with tub, seats, dashboard, steering wheel and stickshift).
  3. BRAT comes out ahead - so in we go!

    Looks to me like the Brats were raced "down-under" in Australia, but not much in this hemisphere.

    my80malibu Never got your PM
  5. Moebius 65 Comet blue by you

    Really nice build! Love that color choice and those '69 Cougar wheels (something I wouldn't have thought of), are certainly an excellent choice!
  6. I have interest in the 72 chevy pickup or the SOD buster. I have a  66 AMT mustang for trade still sealed. I can provide pictures if wanted.

  7. Spring Cleaning Time: Some 1/25 Kits Up-for-Trade

    Pete, PM sent.
  8. I am looking for simple trades, and would certainly be willing to part-with 2 of these offerings for just one kit in return. Some unbuilt, 1/25 kits that I'm interested in would be the following: Soon-to-be-released 1/25 Revell 1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda kit, (hopefully coming in July; I'll hold any above kits for you in-trade for this one). 1/25 AMT/Ertl 1966 Ford Mustang hardtop, (preferably with NO engine pieces as I have way too many small-block Ford motors in my kit warehouse). 1/25 Revell Thames Panel Drag Delivery Truck 1/25 Moebius 1966 Ford F-100 Flareside Pickup Or, make me an offer. My interests include SCCA Race cars, cars from 1955 thru 1975 or maybe something unusual from that same time-period. Thanks for looking!
  9. Its spring-cleaning time in my kit warehouse, and I've found the following 1/25 automotive/truck kits that I have determined I will probably never build, so I'd like to see if anyone from this forum might be interested in making a trade for any of them. They are as follows with brief descriptions: (if you are interested in any, I can provide more details or pics in a PM to you). A). 1/25 AMT/Ertl 1972 Chevy Pickup: This kit is complete except for missing its 4 wheels and tires. Some minor assembly has been started, (like the engine block glued-together). Nothing has been painted. This kit also comes with (3) Modelhaus resin/chrome-plated pieces, (a front grill, a front bumper and a rear bumper w/tailights), to convert this truck back-in-time to a 1968. Those Modelhaus resin parts are still fresh-in-their-bags. B). 1/25 MPC 1981 Chevy "Sod-Buster" Pickup: This kit is complete except for two things; the original kit's step-side box has been replaced by a straight-side/standard/full-fendered box from another 1/25 AMT GMC pickup kit. This kit is also missing a radiator hose piece. This kit has also had some minor assembly started, (like the engine block glued-together), but all pieces are still unpainted. C). 1/25 AMT/Ertl 1969 Plymouth GTX Hardtop: This kit is complete except it might not have its original (4) Goodyear tires in it. Some minor assembly has been started on this kit, (the engine compartment inner-fender pieces have been glued-together). Many of the mold-seams on the body have been very-cleanly removed and cleaned-up. Nothing has been painted in this kit. This kit comes with a 440 engine. D). 1/25 AMT/Ertl 1964 Chevy Impala: This kit is complete except it is missing its (4) Goodyear tires. This kit also comes with all of the chassis pieces to fit an AMT 1/25 1958 Chevy Impala frame with separate suspension pieces underneath this '64 body. The original, one-piece chassis piece is still there as well. It also comes with a 1/25 dashboard gauge color printout for better-detailing the dash gauges. The kit's front bumper/grill piece has been reworked to open-up the molded-in headlight openings and the 2 horizontal-slots across the bottom of the bumper. When that work was completed, both this front bumper/grill piece and the cleaned-up rear bumper piece were repainted with Alclad Chrome paint, so they'd match each other. No other pieces in this kit have been painted. This kit comes with a 409 engine that has drag-car optional parts.
  10. Spring Cleaning Time: Some 1/25 Kits Up-for-Trade

    E). 1/25 Polar Lights 1969 Mercury Cyclone Nascar Race Car driven by Cale Yarborough: This kit is unstarted, but not complete. It is missing its 427 engine, but the complete 429 engine is still there. It is also missing its (4) wheels and Goodyear tires. Nothing has been glued or painted in this kit. The kit's original #21 decals are sealed inside an air-tight Ziplock bag, and are complete. F). 1/25 MPC Howmet TX Turbine SCCA Race Car Built-Up: This was a built-up that I purchased with the intent of restoring, but I've lost my interest. The body is painted in a Bright Yellow, fortunately not in a thick paint-layer. Much of the engine/interior and chassis is painted and assembled, but looks to be an easy-tear-apart for restoration purposes. I believe all of the kit's pieces are still here except the (4) chrome racing wheels and the clear, overhead canopy piece. G). 1/25 IMC Ford GT SCCA Race Car Built-Up: This was another built-up that I purchased with the intent of restoring, but have lost interest in. The body is unpainted, and the engine, interior and chassis are all assembled and painted, mostly in Flat Black paint that was well-applied. I believe this one also looks to be an easy-tear-apart for restoration purposes, and I believe it is only missing it's front, lower-chin piece. H). 1/25 AMT 1963 Chevy Corvette Built-Up: This was another built-up that I purchased with the intent of restoring, but have lost interest in. The body is airbrush-painted in a Medium Blue color, but it has some blemishes on it. The engine, interior and chassis are also painted, mostly in Flat Black paint that was well-applied. This kit is nearly completely dis-assembled, (only the kit's glass is still glued inside the body), and is ready to be cleaned-up and rebuilt. It is missing its complete engine and (4) wheels and tires. I am looking for simple trades, and would certainly be willing to part-with 2 of these offerings for just one kit in return. Some unbuilt, 1/25 kits that I'm interested in would be the following: Soon-to-be-released 1/25 Revell 1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda kit, (hopefully coming in July; I'll hold any above kits for you in-trade for this one). 1/25 AMT/Ertl 1966 Ford Mustang hardtop, (preferably with NO engine pieces as I have way too many small-block Ford motors in my kit warehouse). 1/25 Revell Thames Panel Drag Delivery Truck 1/25 Moebius 1966 Ford F-100 Flareside Pickup Or, make me an offer.

  12. BRAT comes out ahead - so in we go!

    I wonder if any 1:1 Brats of the past spent time as racers on the Baja of California or in any of those cross-country off-road races that used to occur down thru Mexico? This kit would appeal to me even more if I could find a racing-version in 1:1 and try to replicate it.
  13. 1/25 MPC 1967 Corvette chassis parts wanted

    Does anybody have the same 1/25 chassis pieces from Revell's 1967 Corvette kits? I could probably make those Revell kit pieces work, too. Thanks!
  14. BRAT comes out ahead - so in we go!

    Looks like a slightly new "look" for this Brat reissue's box artwork. I kinda like it; sorta "retro" and "new" at the same time!
  15. 1/25 MPC 1967 Corvette chassis parts wanted

    Non-issues for my project; I'm building a 2nd-gen drag Corvette, so will probably be cutting-out the inner-door-panels from the interior and not using the factory-stock exhaust pipes and mufflers. Thanks for the info, tho.
