  1. Atlantis 2019 catalogue

    Here's my latest. Came in the mail today. Used some glue. But, obviously no paint. Fun to built something quick, fun, and a little on the childish side from time to time.
  2. What is your favorite year for American automobiles?

    1967. There was not an American car offered that year that I didn't like. And most foreign cars too. The ugliest American car for 1967 maybe the Rambler American. But... Thats a tough one. I even like those. Below is a list of the 1967 highlights for me: AMC Ambassador and Marlin Buick Wildcat and Riviera Chrysler 300 Chevrolet Corvette and Corvair Dodge Dart and Coronet Ford Falcon, Mustang, XL, and Thunderbird Mercury Cougar, Cyclone GT, and S55 Oldsmobile 442 and Toronado Plymouth Sport Fury Pontiac 2+2 and Grand Prix Other years? I like both 1959 and '60. 1970 through '74 are favorite years too (heavy on '72). 1941, GM cars in general. 1965 GM B-body cars ('65 was a pretty good year in general). The 1937 and '38 Cord 810/812 is still in my opinion the prettiest car ever made. Pre-war Packards, anything from 1936 through '42, except the Clipper. Post-war Packard, 1956. Ford, pre-war, 1932 and '36. 1973 GM Collonade A-body cars. Studebaker Avanti 1963. Other Studebakers, 1964. I really like most everything built from 1930 through 1980. There are a few cars before and after that I do like. But, in general, it was over after 1980. The combination of rubber bumpers and transverse front wheel drive ruined it in general for me.
  3. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    I'm not surprise. That Galaxie and your four '60 Mopars are all beautiful cars. Great job. It was good to see you and your wife at the show again. It was also fun to finally meet MoparFarmer and a see other old and new friends. A great show, great models, and great guys and gals. I always love the NNL North shows. And I'm always impressed and enjoy see your models in the flesh. Wow!
  4. What non-auto model did you get today?

    I don't know what's going on on? But, for some reason I have not been able to load any new pictures here in the last few days. So, the three models I got Monday, and tried to show are: 1. Atlantis' repop of Linndberg's old UFO Flying Saucer kit. 2. Atlantis' Glow In The Dark UFO Encounters "Sighting Over Monument Valley" kit. And 3. another 4D Master Human Anatomy model kit. This time the Eyeball.
  5. What non-auto model did you get today?

    May not be automotive related. But, it will be fun.
  6. Cortina

    I've never seen the above before. Very cool. Any idea when they were produced? Scale? And how hard are they to find today?
  7. Cortina

    Some Cortinas would be cool. I love the mk IIs. What I have never understood, is why no one (that I know of) has ever made a kit of the mk I Capri?
  8. Some kits you know will never be available again . . .

    So many cool kits I doubt we'll ever see again. The AMT '32 Ford Sedan that came with the '40 Willys is still one of my big "holy grail" kits. And it's sad to think we may never see those classic JoHans kits ever again.
  9. Will we ever see any of these kits again ?

    If you see something your remotely interested and can afford it now, by it now. I'm glad I bought and built Revell's '29 and '30 Fords as soon as they came out. I was a bit on the fence about the Blue Bandito. But, I picked one up with the thought that someday I may want to build one. And there is no guarantee the kit will be available (at reasonable price) down the road. So I bought one. I have more kits than I maybe ever be able to build before I die. But, I'm glad I got them for when I'm ready to build them. If ever.
  10. What non-auto model did you get today?

    Cool! I wonder how safe it was for the guys using the gun? They look like they're a little close to the end results.
  11. My Matchbox 1/72 Airplanes--By Request

    Fun stuff Snake.
  12. What non-auto model did you get today?

    Guess what? There are delivery people who can not, do not, or will not read. Today a package was put right in front of my door. Right under the above note. Making it not only impossible for me see it right away from inside. But, nearly tripping me as I opened the door! I'm a little ticked, to say the least. What was in that package? Well, as of last Saturday night, MeTV started showing reruns of the old Invaders TV series. I forgot how much I liked that show. So, since Atlantis Models is again putting out a copy of the old Aurora Invaders UFO kit, I decided I needed one. A simple kit. Not a lot of detail. I have ordered a TSDS decal set to liven the kit up a bit. Hopefully that will be coming soon. (And not left on the front step where it can be stolen, damaged by weather, or trip me.)
  13. What non-auto model did you get today?

    I'm hoping he/she can read. Though I do question that at times. Saturday I got a catalog in the mail that was meant for a house with the same house number, but two streets over. Bryant vs Dupont. But it back in my mailbox hoping the postal carrier will get it to the correct address.
  14. Must be fake.

    I don't see why it has to be fake? If it is, it's a very good one.
  15. 66 Country Squire

    Lovely Ford wagons posted here. One can see why Ford sold more wagons than anybody else during that time. The other models looks great too.
