  1. 1967 Pontiac Bonneville. 2/20, COMPLETE!!

    If you havnt got the glass, the 65 Bonne & GP windshield should be a like for like replacement, it is on a 1:1 at least for the front anyway. Si
  2. Pay It Forward

    I'll join in a UK/EU one too.
  3. Could do with a nice clean pair of these, but will happily settle for 1. Dont mind if they are 2 piece plastic, just not with a gluey front as Ive already got one of those... cheers si .
  4. Think these slicks are from MPC. Is there an aftermarket source for these ? or has anyone cast 'em in the past ? Could only find narrower ones on ebay, think they were 7.00-15, but not what I'm after cheers Si .
  5. Munsters Koach Firestone 9.00 - 15 Slicks

    I'll have a bash at saving them, also found some at Scenes Unlimited
  6. Looks like Scenes Unlimited will have them back in stock shortly
  7. Thanks Bill, gives me another way forward. Just checked Scenes Unlimited and will drop them an email, thanks for that James.
  8. Thanks Mark, think you've got it sunshine, they are 2 piece plastic, just found an older built Munsters Koach on ebay with the same slicks on it. cheers Si
  9. British banger racing.

    Chris, some are buying & importing them just to race
  10. MPC 67 GTO & AMT 66 Buick

    Gary, If these are the right wheels, PM me your address and i'll pop em in the post & hello Mr FTO (Steve) cheers Si
  11. Did anyone make?

    Dave, Ive a 72 I could possibly be tempted to trade, drop me a PM mate cheers Si
  12. Probably a long shot but does anyone know of anywhere that sells aftermarket white metal parts for 1/43 scale (Brooklin, Motor City USA etc) ? Specifically after fender & door mirrors for 1930s-50s cars but I do need other parts too. I've tried ebay but can't seem to find what I'm looking for, cheers Si
  13. Tommy, I might still have the front axle setup & transmission from this if its any use to you Si
  14. The Monkees (im not your) Steppin Stone originally recorded by Paul Revere & the Raiders https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkD5HDDzdZ8
  15. First Restoration - 1931 Cadillac

    Fenders look dark green to me, but the body looks like a brown/grey mix
  16. all i want to get is some of my unfinished projects ready for paint. 32 chrysler imperial AMT GMC Jimmy 62 catalina 62 bonneville HT 62 bonneville ragtop 63 bonneville 64 grand prix 64 GTO 65 bonneville 65 grand prix 65 GTO 66 GTO 67 GTO and any other Pontiacs that i forgot about in reality i'll probably start a couple new kits and end up with yet more 'projects'
  17. 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 ?
  18. Moebius 1961 Pontiac news

    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
  19. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Got these prebuilts last Wednesday, just a shame that most of the boxes dont have a kit for 'em.
  20. Chevy Vegas were shipped vertically

    Do any of the manufacturers still do that ? An old press pic of mine dated Jan '71.
  21. Visiting England Hobby Shops

    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
  22. 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
  23. Closest i can think of are the standard ones in the 65 Bonneville, may have only been in the original issue though.
  24. Identifying vintage kits

    Left one is Revell (cadet series #904) Vauxhall Cresta - middle is Revell (cadet series #903) Ford Consul - right one. cheers Si
  25. 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.
