      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

  1. THarrison351 added a post in a topic Where to find topic about MPC wheel barrel hot rod. There was girl standing next to wheel barrel on box art.   

    I did a search on Google and I've seen the links to the pictures that used to be in this topic that was deleted. It has the picture of the lady standing by the Elegant Farmer. It even has the picture showing the typical announcement flyer with  release date from Round 2. I have no idea why it was deleted or who deleted it.

    I have one version of all the original kits originally released, and so far have only built the Mercedes Cabriolet. This makes a lovely model, even if it is inaccurate. If I ever get my hobby room completed, I will finish all these classics. They are well executed and beautiful models when finished. Its hard to believe they were designed 50 years ago.
    Here's mine:

    I Built a kit 20 years ago with probably the same decal makre because the same thing happened to me. Still looks good.

    Don't forget to check out Randy Ayer's NASCAR modelers. Lots of great NASCAR knowledge on that site.

    Well, I'm no expert, but the only thing that looks like Ernest T. Bass is the brick in his hand and the vest. Ernest T. was small and wiry and usually wore a billed cap. without it, his hair was very thin to the point of being bald. Here is a link to a wiki.  http://mayberry.wikia.com/wiki/Ernest_T._Bass

    I built one along with the Cadillac, Thunderbird, and Impala, when Revell offered them in the mid eighties. The Retractable roof will work. I don't remember any build problems with any of the kits.

    Well, not in the room technically.

    1960 Ranchero
    So, once again I find myself in Canada for an indeterminate length of time for my aircraft company trying to get a new aircraft ready for first flight. I usually just purchase some kits and browse the hobby stores. Well, I found this interesting and really cheap diecast at Walmart that just needed some detailing to make it look a little better on the shelf. A quick trip to Michael's with a discount coupon and a deluxe box of acrylic paints made this little ute much more presentable.
    It's not prototypically correct under the hood, but, for 12 bucks, who cares? To go from a solid mass of black plastic to something that looks like a six cylinder engine was pretty easy. I also didn't realize how much more green the color was when I was trying to match the under hood color. In normal light it looks much closer to the body color. Also, a little black-wash for the grill and some silver for the back of the headlights.
    (Not My Picture, Something I found on the Net)

    The interior was also a solid black mass of plastic with a chrome steering wheel and an instrument panel sticker. Try to find an original 1960 Ranchero with this diecast's upholstery pattern on the net, or any 1960 Ranchero with an original style interior. There's one, the one the new AMT kit based on Ohio George Montgomery won years ago. It has the special branded brown material. This diecast has a pleated material which looks like that in the brochure, so that is what I painted it to look like.

    The other pictures

    This was a fun thing to do without making a mess in my hotel room.

    Ha Ha! Love it! As soon as I saw the picture of the exhaust, I knew what you had done.

    Love this kit. Even everything that is wrong. Built is several times in my youth. And now I have a nice one to display. Can't wait to see this one finished.

    I usually prime and paint the hood, same color parts, and body at the same time and have them mounted on a board so I don't apply more coats to a single part. Every now an then you can get a reaction with the plastic and things go bad. I can't see your picture to well but it looks like the paint on the hood fogged from humidity or reacted with the plastic.
