  1. unclescott58 added a post in a topic Revell 76 Gran Torino Model Kit Review   

    Another great review Chris. I love your enthusiasm. I was thinking that no one else was interested in this kit other than me. Especially after looking at the lack responses to comments I posted on another thread here about this kit. (The thread dealing with the instructions for this kit.) It's good to see another person taking an interest in it.
    Revell fixed everything I disliked about the Starsky and Hutch Torino with version of this. I like the mid-size cars from this era. I'm hoping that the Torino sells well enough, that Revell may consider doing a '77 or '78 Thunderbird based on this kit. Or better yet, it sells well, and they consider doing other 70's mid-size that have been overlooked in 1/25th scale. Things like a non-NASCAR '73 Chevelle SS, Pontiac GTO, Olds 4-4-2, or Buick GS. Also in that same vein, I'd like see a '79 Chrysler Córdoba 300 or a '78 or '79 Dodge Magnum. But, will the new "stock" Torino sell? Proving there a market for kits of these cars?

    Where are the photos? Have you posted new ones? I'd love to see more of what you've done with both the trailer and the Suburban. It's been a long wait.

    Very nice restoration Bob. I love Deal's Wheels. I'll probably get one of these, as soon as they reappear on the shelves.

    No. But assume it's got to be pretty good.

    Wow! Seeing Rex's collection above is impressive. And I thought I liked Ford GTs.
  6. unclescott58 added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Revell's 1958 Chevy Impala.
  7. unclescott58 added a post in a topic Revell instruction sheet up for the Gran Torino   

    Other changes? The rear suspension is lower and the same size tires and wheels are used both front and rear. Also, the big one to me, it's molded in white plastic. And the decals are different. Beyond that, I can't think of much more. But, it's enough to get me to buy the kit.
  8. unclescott58 added a post in a topic Palmer '70 Vette - what to do?   

    Oh, its worst than an old Revell kit. Still, it was meant to be built. Everybody should have built at least one Palmer kit in their life time. It's a right passage. You most do it.

    Thanks for the info Snake. I never did notice the problem before.
  10. unclescott58 added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    That above is what I really want in 1/25th (or 1/24th) scale. Even that color. I'd like it to the options LHD, like the real ones imported into this country.

    I'm surprised to hear that you don't have Revell's '40 Fords, Greg. I always figured you to be one of those guys who own a copy of just about every recent kit release. Especially the popular ones.
  12. unclescott58 added a post in a topic Toyotas   

    Not wanting to beat a dead horse. But. The Toyota USA Museum has in its collection a 2000GT with the steering wheel on the left. They also mention how many 2000GTs were officially imported into the US. I think they claim 54. So now more than ever, I want a model of a LHD Toyota 2000GT.
  13. unclescott58 added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    I really wish Round 2 would (or is that could?) reissue the MPC Toyota 2000GT kit.
  14. unclescott58 added a post in a topic My next modeling project... Maybe.   

    Nice car. The first car I can really remember my folks having as a little kid, was a '55 Olds 88 2-door sedan. They had a '50 Olds 2-door fastback when I was born. But, I really don't remember that one too well. Anyhow, nice car. I hope you buy it.

    Snake, this maybe a little off the subject of '62 Corvette models. But, what is wrong with Revell's '67 Corvette roadster? I always thought that it looked pretty good?
