      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

    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?

    Didnt the above trailer come with just about every MPC Impala and Caprice kit, other than the convertibles, from '68 on?

    I find them fun. The one that stands out to me, was the fake Jo-Han early 70's Olds Custom Cruiser station wagon. The "what if?" speculations can be fun. With photo shop it's amazing what one can design. It's just a shame they can't duplicate what's on the box. I would love to have a mid 60's Jeep Gladiator. A '55 Highway Patrol Buick. A '72 Olds Custom Cruiser. Etc down the line.

    If they didn't. Which I doubt they did. It's a shame. I love those old Jeep Gladiators. And I'm old enough to remember Daktari too. And that's a clue to why this kit was never done. The Daktari TV show came out in the mid-60's. The box art above does not look like mid-60's Revell box art. It looks more like late-70's, early-80's Revell box art to me. At least a dozen years after Daktari. I think even Clarence could see that something is not right about the above kit.

    Greg Meyers pointed out on the box art for the Indy Drag Combo, the Willys in the background is coming off its trailer using no ramps. And he seemed to think that odd. Come on Greg, a Willys don't need no ramps. After all they went on to manufacture Jeeps. And I'm sure that some of that Jeep magic was built into every Willys. Even if the Jeep came that generation Willys was done. 😉

  10. unclescott58 added a post in a topic First time using BMF   

    Working on my Lindberg 1952 Chevy fastback this morning. I thought about how two new products (at least for me) that I've learned about just in the last 12 months has made my model building so much easier. One is the Molotow Liquid Chrome as we've been talking about here. The other is the Bondic UV light activated glue. Both have worked out great for me. They both help make this Chevy project go together in a much more satisfactory way than it would have without them. The Bondic was used for gluing in the glass. The Molotow for all of the chrome. I'm sure I could have gotten decent results using other materials I've used in the past. But in this case, I found the new products to work that much better for me. I'm very happy with the results.

    Other than that left wheel looking a wonky. (Maybe because it's set for a turn?) the kit looks beautiful. Very nice.

    Did any of the above cars get finished? And are the end results here? I'd love to see how they all turned out.

    I purchased one through eBay. The other two on Amazon. There are several discussions in this thread and others debating the merits and vices of these pens. Like anything there are pluses and minuses. But, my experience so far has been all positive. I love them. Will they replace BMF for everything? No. In my situation they'll be replacing BMF for most things. I find them easier to use. And the end result just as good. If not better. This is just my opinion. I recommend at least trying them, and seeing what you think.

    I'm with you on this one Christian. I hate BMF. And I love the Molotow Liquid Chrome pens. Much easier for me to work to work with. There are one or two instances where may be needed for some things. But for most, the Molotow pens have made them history for me too.
