      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

    They were very similar to the Dennis Doty's books. But, Doty's books came out in 1989. And the books I'm looking for were for sure in our junior high library in the early 1970's.

    Okay, I remember this guy. I loved the stuff he use to do in Car Model Magazine back in the early 70's. And going to his site, using the link above, I still like his stuff.

    Books on Model Cars
    There are several good books on our hobby out there. But, there are two I'm curious about, and I've been hunting for for a while now. I have no idea of the exact names of the books or who the author was. The books I'm looking for were actually a two volume set that I believe was published sometime in the early 1970's. My junior high school had a set at the time. I remember them both having white covers with photographs on them. Volume one was aimed at the basics of building model cars. Volume two more advanced techniques. And, I believe the author was fairly well known in the hobby at the time. And may still be.
    Anybody out there have any idea what set of books I'm looking for? So I can do a better search in my hunt.

    "Olds Buick, same thing." ?? The Buick nailheads are a totally different engines from the Olds OHV V-8s. What is the point of this thread? A lot of bad information is being passed on here. Things are getting a little confusing because of it. Let's stick to the facts. I'd love to see a thread (accurately) reviewing any one of the many '49 Mercury model kits out there. I have several, including AMT's and Revell's Custom and station wagon kits. Despite that, I still love see a review on any one of those three. Or better yet, a review comparing the the three. Hopefully with pictures.

    I recognize the name. Can somebody tell me who Ira Dahm is? Why do I know that name?

  13. unclescott58 added a post in a topic Trans-Am the pony wars....   

    I'm a little confused by this poll. I like several of the cars listed. And I do think there is a market for Trans-Am pony cars. But, I think there is also a market for any of the above cars in stock form too. I personally have no interest in Trans-Am racing cars. I'd like to see the above kits offered in a 2-in-1 type format. One where you can build a showroom stock version, and a Trans-Am racer. Back in the old days they offered us kits like that. Why can't they do the same thing today?

    First time I've ever seen this one. Is it real? Or one of those phantom kit boxes people make up from time to time?
