    Revell T-Bone Stake
    I have up for trade a Vintage Revell T-Bone Stake kit. I can assure you it is 100% as there are not too many parts in this kit. The box is in great shape in my own opinion. Also includes the instructions and two club applications although I wouldn't bother applying 😀.  Down falls of the kit are that most of the engine chrome parts are off the sprus as well as the fan belt assembly.  The latter part is pictured to the left off the clear parts.  The engine and transmission halfs are also already glued together. Below are a few pictures. 
    For trade I am looking for the monogram the classic kits. Mainly the 1931 Rolls Royce and 1934 Mercedes 1932 540k. Also may accept the AMT 1934 5 window coupe or any 1930s cars. 
    Thanks for looking!!! Feel free to message me any time about the trade!

    That's cool how they thought of the packaging like that.  
    I agree with you whole heartedly that they are meant to be opened.  I respect people's hobby.   But I also hate seeing people with multiples of the same kit, usually harder to find ones, collecting dust and will never be built unlit something very unfortunate happens to the collector.  Rather see a kid make the biggest glue bomb than stored away. 
    I am going to go aheand open it, check it out. Supposed to be here at the first of the month. Will let all y'all know how I fair!

    Yea, that was my bad about the title. I was really after the 1935 Jo-Han Mercedes 500k roadster and one got away as I wasn't able to bid at the end of the auction. Guess it was still on my mind when I was making this post. Thanks for all the response. I'm going to go ahead and open it when I receive it in the mail. Check it all over and hope for the best.

    Jo-Han 1931 Cadillac
    Hey guys!
         Got another question about a vintage kit. I just purchased a sealed jo-Han 1931 Cadillac off the eBay. While doing some research I found that these really old kits that haven't been opened can have a problem called "tire burn". This is where the compound of the tires somehow melts the softer plastic of the kit. My question is should I go ahead and open her up to see if there is any damage or let it be and hope for the best if I ever decide to build it. Below is a picture of the kit in question. BTW think I stole it for 10 bucks plus 10 more for shipping. What do y'all think?

    Revell 1966 Pontiac GTO
    Got another simple build for you.  I bought this kit at my first model car show about a year ago here in Birmingham.  Its the Revell 1966 GTO.  Kit was in pretty good shape but the decals where trashed.  Built straight out of the box with the exception of the wheels, which are from the 1962 impala California wheels kit, and added detail under the hood.  Tried my hand at creating the fuel lines to the carburetors and that is what I came up with.  I know its not correct for the real car but that tri-power setup is a beast!   Paint is that testors green metallic. I try to have a theme for most of my builds and this one was for my mom.  The color is close to here birthstone color, and the purple engine is for my grandmother which was her favorite color.  Thanks for looking and comments, questions, and concerns are always welcome.
    Keep on Modeling!!!!

    That is not a bad idea! Thanks for looking.

    Wish i had a better camera or maybe my lighting is off but the colors are not represented well.  The car is actually more of a greenish blue and the top is maroon.  The interior pick is closer to the actual color.  Thanks for the input!

    That's awesome. Didn't know there where so many of them! The two piece tires definitely threw me off too. But surprised it has stayed all together after 40 years. Thanks again guys for the great information!

    Thanks! This was the first time adding so much detail for the firewall. The paint isn't my best but don't think it's chipped. Don't remembers if the antique plate came with this kit or not just liked the purple on white. Glad you pointed that out cause I just realized there is no plate on the front lol.

    Man that crazy.  You are the third person to say that and those are only replies I have got so far.  I thought it was a cool kit cause it is a hot rod with a corvair engine!!
