    Whoa! The two posted by RRR above, are beautiful! Very, very nice! 
  2. unclescott58 added a post in a topic AMT 1950 Ford Showboat   

    A nice proper reissue of an old AMT classic.
  3. unclescott58 added a post in a topic Revell 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442/FE3-X instruction sheet is up   

    Yea. I too have no desire for FE3-X. But, the stock '85 4-4-2? Heck yea! This kit is now added to my list of must haves. 
    Notice the stock 4-4-2 version even comes with a standup hood ornament. How cool is that? I miss car jewelry like that.

    1965 300 was powered by a 413. The 440 came along in '66. But, for all practical purposes the two engines look the same on the outside.

    Interesting to see all the wonderful box art above. Despite all of that great box art, after you built a few models back then, you knew to trust the company logo even more. I like the box art above for th Revell '57 Chevy Sport Coupe, with the guy with the surf board and the two bikini clad women. Beautiful box art. But the kit inside? Just the tires alone that Revell put in their kits back then at the time would keep me away. The AMT kit '57 was so much better and easier to build. Plus the box art was pretty good. And it came with one piece soft vinyl tires. The Revell '57? Two piece hard plastic tires. Yeck!
    There are many kits I love for their box art. But, their content? That's another story.

    Again I love it. Not keen on the color. But, that's a personal choice. I picked up one as soon as they became available about a year ago. Need to get going on it one of these days. By the way, I'm thinking I'll be painting mine red.

    Another great review Chris. I watch everyone that is model related. Keep them coming. 
  8. unclescott58 added a post in a topic Monogram Beer Wagon Build Review Tom Daniel Tribute Build   

    Great job on an old classic. I love just about anything that Tom Daniel designed. I own and have built several of his kits over the years. My last TD Beer Wagon, I got specific Mountain Dew decals designed for the kit. Painted it a very nice metallic green. And wa-lah, I have a very nice Mack for hauling my favorite beverage around (at least in my imagination).

    Somehow missed on commenting about this one.☝️Beautiful!

    Another great one. It also got me to buy the kit. I was much happier with what I found in the box, over what I found in Revell's Nomad above.
  11. unclescott58 added a post in a topic Your favourite Box art   

    The above maybe my all time favorite box art ever done. Sucked me into buying my first one back in the day. 
  12. unclescott58 added a post in a topic AMT Buick Oldsmobile Pontiac Reissues   

    I want AMT's Craftsman '59 Buick to come back if that is still possible. And Mr. Skelly mentioned modifying the Modified Stocker Olds into some other Olds. I'd like to see it modified back to the stock '65 Dynamic 88 it was originally. The other Oldsmobiles Mr. Skelly mentioned would be cool too. But I'd be real happy just to see the original Dynamic 88 come back.

    Why do you think the photo was colorized? Color film was available at the time that photo was taken. A decent camera, with color slide film especially, could easily give you a that nice of a color image. It's a great photo. I'm betting it's not been modified. I'd love to see other photos of the same car. I really like the early, pre funny car era, quarter mile stuff. 
  14. unclescott58 added a post in a topic Best fix for Revell's '48 Ford Custom roof?   

    I agree Bill. I really don't feel too guilty. I do have fun both collecting and building. I always buy with the intent on someday building. I'm just realistic in knowing that will probably never happen. And that is okay. 
    Maybe when I die and go to heaven, I'll be able to complete what I have. And find and build all the other kits I wish I had.
  15. unclescott58 added a post in a topic 1/25 AMT '58 Edsel Pacer   

     
    Beautiful Edsel. But, here we go again. Complaints about a new kit not being right. Again, I like the newer Edsel. It's always looked like a correct me. In every way. Plus it's available. The chances of seeing the old come kit back, especially in stock form, are probably nil. The new Ertl designed kit is great.
