    Any idea what the scale these trucks are?

    A couple of good ones I'm glad to hear coming. AMT's 1/32 1965 Mustang Fastback. Very cool. I'm still wait for the '60 Thunderbird and '63 Corvette in that series to reappear. And the MPC Vending Machine is high on my list. I'm hoping somebody will make Moutain Dew decals to fit that one.

    Smells good? I was always told that sniffing glue was bad for you. Destroys brain cells. What are you thinking?

    Looking at Steve's build above reminds me of the only thing I never liked on this kit. And that is the rear bumper. The way that rear bumper was designed on the model kit, it does look right to me. It's too fat, and/or flat? I don't know? It just doesn't look right were the bumper and rear fenders comes in contact. This problem was true on all MPC Camaros from 1978 - 1981. Great kit otherwise. I had forgotten about this until see Steve's kit.

    I love these type of reviews. I don't care if it's a new or old kit. It's always appreciated. Thank.

    Lindberg '61 Bel Air? Isn't this Lindberg's '61 Impala?

    I love mine. It's been handy quite a few times. And I like the size of it. The handle is a little fatter than a regular X-acto knive. I find it to fit better in my hand for some reason? I'm not throwing out my others knives. But, do like this one a little bit better.

    I didn't know who he was, but I'm very sorry to hear about this none the less.

    Revell Red Lines
    Okay, yesterday afternoon I decided to try applying Revell's Red Line tire decals to a set of Revell's tires. Both the decals and tires were from Revell's wonderful 1967 Corvette roadster kit. I hate those darn decals. I don't know if I've ever been able to get a set of them on four tires in a row with any success. The first tire I went to do yesterday, went down perfect. A little adjustment. But, not a major problem. It look good. The second tire? Nothing but disaster. And more I tryed to fix it the worst it got! Somehow the decal ends up twisting, and refuses to untwist and lay down flat. 😖
    I hate Revell tires in general. I can get the wide white decals on their tires with no problems. I don't like them as well as tampo printed wide whites. But, they're okay. The Red Lines? I don't think I've ever gotten a successful set done? Does anybody out there have any suggestions? Has anybody ever gotten them to work?

    How are you busting my bubble?
  12. unclescott58 added a post in a topic MPC '73 Mustang?   

    Went searching online for bronze colored '73 Mach I. Found several pictures of'73 Mach 1s in a color called "gold glow"  with black stripes that looks pretty nice. I think I may have try replicating my '73 in that color.

    Not high on my wanted list. But, I always thought the Flapjack was cool. And if they reissued it, I buy one. The other one I'd like to see, that I don't think Tom Daniel actually designed, but it was tied to him at the time, is the Ghost of the Red Baron. I know it didn't sell well in its first release. But, those who would mainly be in charge of buying such an expensive kit back then, has changed in 45 years. I know I couldn't afford to buy it back then. And my parents or other adults may not have thought of it as be "cool" or appropriate to buy me one as a gift. I want one! Now I have the money and no one questioning if it's right for me to have one or not.

    Somebody else brought this up a week or two ago. I can not remember if it was in a posting here? Or someone in our local model car club meeting mentioned it? Anyhow, I download the instructions to my iPad so I can remain excited until I get the real thing in my hands. It looks good.

    I tryed ordering this kit as soon as I got my 2016 Auto World catalog a few weeks back. I was told then that I could not order any kit that is more then a month away from being release from them. Credit card issues. So I was told to try to it again in a month or so. I was also told at that time that kit may be be delayed until December. I've been wanting this kit for a long time. And I'm very excited to see it coming back.
