  1. They build up really nice! You'll love the result! Mine is non factory green one.
  2. It is from Franklin Mint. The outer box with missile launcher added. I haven't actually seen it yet, these are pictures from the eBay seller. I'm still in Canada until November.
  3. Won this the other day. The mirrors are off, but included and the hood comes off. I don't think it will be too hard to fix and it was cheap. All the accessories are there too along with the foam and outer box.
  4. A couple of new acquisitions University of Racing Champions (Icons) released their latest wing car. Bobby Isaac's K & K Insurance 1969 Dodge Daytona. It's amazing how many people have been waiting for these cars to be released. What's really remarkable to me is how few races they actually won (6) over the couple of years they raced. You'd have thought they were more successful the way everyone remembers how fast and powerful they were. I'm hoping the first winner, Richard Brickhouse is released soon. The Ray Nichels 99 car was one of the most beautiful cars ever raced. My quest to obtain all the Danbury Mint Budweiser Delivery Trucks for less than $50 each gets a little more complete with the 1937 Chevrolet in standard livery. They also made a Christmas version. I'll need that one, the 1931 Ford Delivery, and the 1933 International Truck to complete my set. These are not my pictures, I haven't seen the diecast yet. Back in Canada again.
  5. That's awesome! Embrace the future!
  6. Over the years, I've seen a lot of T-bird radios listed as promos on eBay. I guess because they use the majority of the promo, they get called a promo. I've never seen the other ones, but I've never looked for other makes in promos.
  7. Went to my west Wichita HL and there were about ten kits marked down to $7.49. I got an AMT 1975 Datsun pickup, AMT 1965 El Camino, AMT 1986 El Camino SS, Revell 1966 Chevy Suburban, and an AMT 1966 Mercury. Pretty happy!
  8. I almost bid on one recently that was up for cheap. I didn't because I have enough for now. Good looking diecast though Randy!
  9. Thanks! Most of them were on my wants to look out for. I'm trying to complete all the DM Budweisers for under $50 each. So far, so good. I have four to go. The 50 Chevy and Corvette were too cheap to pass on, but I really wanted the rest. Mainly it was dumb luck, a good search save on eBay, and really odd work hours which allowed me to hunt often for some buy-it-nows at ridiculously low prices and a couple of others ended at odd times with few bidders. I think I'm done bidding for DM and FM on eBay for awhile. It was a lot of fun. The UoR Dodge Daytonas will continue to be released, so those will be next diecasts.
  10. I'm back and finally get to see what I've been winning on eBay for the past few months. Almost everything arrived undamaged. The 57 Ford was shipped in its foam package, but wasn't secure in the foam and broke the rear springs, the driver, seat and bent the passenger door hinge. I was able to fix those and clean them up. I missed that the 36 Ford was missing the passenger door handle. I don't have any replacements in my parts box, so I'll have to rob from a kit. I improvised a mirror spotlight for the 50 Chevy. The Charger is not a diecast, but it was a built kit by AMT and I won it on eBay so I included it too. I didn't take a picture of the Daytonas, because they are secured in their foam boxes.
  11. I'm not sure where this is from, but it shows the wheels and hubcaps for the Belvedere line. The poverty caps don't appear here, but you know they were available because the cop cars had them.
  12. The black spots might be something that damaged the clear finish over the bare aluminum and has caused it to turn black. Unfortunately, I've seen similar spots on car wheels.
  13. I don't usually collect 1/64 anymore unless their special. I'm going to have to look for those Cobras. I found a deal on eBay I couldn't pass the other day. A diecast I thought I'd never own because they always bid more than I wanted to pay. A Danbury Mint 1954 US Mail Truck came up with an unbelievably low buy it now price, so I did. The only defect is they said the drivers mirror came off when putting it back in the box, but it comes with. Pictures look good so I'm happy. Looking forward to seeing it in a few weeks.
  14. Hear, Hear! I'd love to get one of every Hatchette diecast produced in 1/24 scale. Many of them are cars never replicated in this scale. I can find most on eBay, but they are either over priced or the shipping cost is prohibitive.
