    It seems that these model car guys are an angry bunch ,   I am far from being a regular here or a Model Car insider like some here are but some thing I find very interesting=In one topic I read where Gregg (the guy that owns this site) is looking for ways to sell more magazines and keep this site going yet in a few other topics I see where there are members attacking each other and telling people to leave-don't come back-you wont be missed ect.......which doesn't sound like they are being ambassadors to the magazine, the on line forum or the hobby it's self .

    (not really-it made me laugh)
  3. Dawson added a post in a topic So I'm sitting on a stack of 63 Country Squies and 64 Colony Parks   

    It is my understanding that there is some one that has copied the ModelHaus Shasta Airflyte trailer , I missed out on the original and wonder if ModelHaus is out of business and who ever is making copies has got license and permission from Shasta or the parent company Forest River . It's easy enough to find out I would guess .

    If cars and trucks from the 50's 60's and 70's weren't so cool there wouldn't be so many people living in the past...even the younger folks that weren't born yet like to live in the past it seems ?
    Sure am glad this thread didn't  metamorphosis into a political firestorm .

    What IRKED me today=The limp dweeb that my daughter is married to. He was spoiled by his mommy and daddy now he mooches off my daughter.
    He's proud to be a 'Stay at Home Dad'
    It's a sad thing when a grown man can't earn more than a baby sitter or day care provider.
    I think he likes being the feminine one in the relationship.

    Mr. Maindrian Pace,

    You have a very nice Mercury Comet Station Wagon. What year is it ?
    Is your car built on the Ford Falcon chassis or the Ford Fairlane chassis ?
    thanks, Larry
  11. Dawson added a post in a topic 1/25 First Gear 1938 International pickup   

    " If you have the First Gear '36 Dodge panel, you have the wheels and tires for that panel........." by Chuck Most

    The '36 Dodge panel (as was the '36 Dodge pick up and 4 door convertible) were made by Liberty Classics by Spec Cast and are 1/28 scale
    Side by side this International is a lot bigger.

    I have never seen a 1936 Dodge made by First Gear
  12. Dawson added a post in a topic Cannonball Run CBP 2012   

    What kind of a deal is that? Changing the prizes after the contest is done ?

    Cheers, Larry

    P.S.- I have to edit this ....There were 3 prizes promissed not given

  15. Dawson added a post in a topic Glad to be here   

    Thanks for the welcome, Kris
    I am visiting my nephew this weekend and he is the one who has gotten me back into the hobby and this web site.
    The funny thing about that is I am the person that turned him onto model car building when he was 6 or 7 years old.
    I don't know how to post a picture or use a pm so could you tell me about your club here?
    cheers, Larry
