    Fenders look dark green to me, but the body looks like a brown/grey mix

  6. 421gto added a post in a topic Mini-Lindys   

    Still see the occasional Mini-Lindy at toy shows over here, but id buy em if they reissued em. Better yet if they could bring out a whole lot of different ones of cars/trucks not seen in small scale (so no more mustangs/vettes/firebirds !)




    Could the Dart have been an Aurora cigarbox ?

    Scott, 60 was the first year for the 8 lug.

    If the 8 lug proportions are fixed or not, i'll still add a few kits to the stash
  8. 421gto added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Got these prebuilts last Wednesday, just a shame that most of the boxes dont have a kit for 'em.





  9. 421gto added a post in a topic Chevy Vegas were shipped vertically   

    Do any of the manufacturers still do that ?

    An old press pic of mine dated Jan '71.

    Hi Nels,
    There used to be a few, but like Sonny says, theyve all gone. You could try my mate Bob Dobinson at carkits in Southend, though he doesnt have a shop & he deals in mostly older vintage kits.

    If you want newer stuff it'll be a modelzone/WHSmith, theres a few around Leicester but Ive no idea what they hold in stock.

    Try this link for them https://www.whsmith.co.uk/pws/StoreFinder.ice?country=GB&findStore=findStore&page=stores&countryRegion=Leicestershire


  11. 421gto added a post in a topic thinking about engine swap diorama   

    never tried but maybe a 2 part resin with clothing dye or food colouring would work ? Not sure if it would work for large pieces but might for a part/filled container
  12. 421gto added a post in a topic 1966 Pontiac Tempest Wheel Cover?   

    Closest i can think of are the standard ones in the 65 Bonneville, may have only been in the original issue though.
  13. 421gto added a post in a topic Identifying vintage kits   

    Left one is Revell (cadet series #904) Vauxhall Cresta - middle is Revell (cadet series #903) Ford Consul - right one. cheers Si
  14. 421gto added a post in a topic Great (or other) Moments In Modeling History   

    Looking back, seeing as I'm on the other side of the pond to most of you, it was Street Machine mag, who back in the early/mid ?? 80s added the small talk section to the mag. Opened up my eyes to what other people was building.
  15. 421gto added a post in a topic 75 Pontiac Ventura SPrint   

    That is nicely done. Makes you wonder why you don't see more of them.



    Steve, I think 74 was when the Pontiac 350 was dropped, and in 75 they went with the Buick 350 in its place
    cheers
