  1. THarrison351 added a post in a topic '58 Edsel Wagon   

    Your Edsel is a very nice build. The motor is almost totally incorrect for an Edsel. Only your valve covers and air cleaner are correct for 1958. Lack of a distributor up front is the big give away. The rest of the motor is a Y-block which wouldn't be offered until 1959 as the base V-8 motor. In 1958 the base V-8 motor was the E-400 (400 Ft lbs Torque) 361 Cubic Inch FE (Ford Edsel) big block. The E-475 (475 Ft lbs Torque) was the top of the line V-8 and it was a 410 Cubic Inch MEL (Mercury Edsel Lincoln) big block.

    Cable prices went from ridiculous to stupid several years ago. I dropped my subscription and haven't missed any of those shows. I used to like watching the BBC's Top Gear guys before Jeremy completely lost his mind.

    I never got a good outdoor picture of this due to the weather, but I was very pleased with the results.

    All of my sealed Bill Elliott kits. The box has all of my un-built kits, sealed and opened. The list is the sealed kits. They won't be built by me.

    Those V-6s were basically racing Chevy small blacks with the rear cylinders lopped off. That's why the right rear and left front exhaust ports are close together like the center ports on a small block Chevy. Pistons, rods, valvetrain,etc., everything but the crank, cam, heads, intake, block, etc interchange. Made pretty good power and were reasonably reliable.

    Compared to most of you guys, I really am cheap. I try never to pay more than 20 bucks for any 1/24 - 1/25 kit that is in current issue and with a Hobby Lobby discount coupon, much less. I buy bargains off of eBay and wait patiently for the best price. I had about 400 unbuilt kits at one time but sold about 150 over the last two years up until last year. The two most expensive kits I had purchased were the Revell 1/8 scale '32 Ford Hiboy Hot Rod and 1/8 scale '23 Big T bought new at Hobby Lobby with a coupon. That was until last year when I bought a Testors Lincon Mint 1/6 scale Harley-Davidson FLHRI Road King off eBay for $55.00 plus $20.00 shipping.

    Wichita KS is clearing out about 13 kits too.

    It looks like a Vega with a Chevette grill. I never knew it was kitted.

    I think it goes with the cones, the test wheel, and the recording case for testing a car. It must have been an accessory idea from the model makers back when it was originally released as an annual.

    What I had in the old house.

    If I ever get my hobby room finished I'll probably do something different. 
  12. THarrison351 added a post in a topic Wonder who has the molds for this ?   

    One of the many kits I built and lost or destroyed when I was a kid. Painted it light blue and built poorly. Oh well. Wouldn't mind a second chance to build it again.

    When I was in high school in 1980's, I was a member of the KEY (Kiwanis Educated Youth) club. We helped the local retirement home set up a white elephant sale and I purchased this kit for a dollar. It had never been built and still was mostly attached to the sprues. I built it and it worked as advertised. Unfortunately, it like almost all the models of my youth, failed to make all the moves I made over the years. Those kits built or unbuilt go for a pretty penny now.

    What patina, that candy green paint on white plastic is fantastic. Amazing how you were able to make that kit look so aged.
