    The real Mk IVs had had a very limited run. And raced for a very short time. I don't think there was as much difference in Mk IVs as in the other GT40s. I also wonder if the two model companies ever really got up close enough to a Mk IV at the time to take true measurements off of a real car? Or do they base the tooling on pictures and specifications they got from different sources?

    I believe I spent a couple hundered bucks or more on a 1/100 scale 4D Vision Saturn V cutaway model kit. Beautiful kit. Monster in size. A few months after I finished building it, I donated it to one of middle schools I work at.

    I'm sorry! That last line in my post your commenting on came off wrong. Wrong all the way! What I really meant to say is sharing it with the public like you've done is more than $16,000 to me!
    Boy, I need to reread things sometimes several times before I post it. Joe you did the right thing by donating the helmet to the Air and Space Museum. Talking to Michael Collins and have something In the Smithsonian's collection is to me priceless. And very cool.
    Boy, I hope I cleared that up!

    Amen. You hit the nail on the head.

    Great story. Very nice of you to give up your helmet for the betterment of the rest of us. Thank you. It's not worth $16,000. It's a priceless piece of history. To get a chance to have something in a museum's collect and talk with a historic figure. That would be worth more than $16,000 to me.

    Me too. I watched it live that night. The people who claim it was hoax piss me off to no end. Dumb SOBs. Just a year or two ago, a Chinesse satallite photographed several of the Apollo landing sites. You can still see the equipment left behind, including things like tracks left from the moon rovers. Why would the Chinesse want to fake that? Why didn't our biggest competitor that the time, the Soviets cry foul if it was fake?
    IT HAPPENED! The proof is there if you look. One of greatest achievements of the human race ever.

    A very nice job, on a very nice car.

    Nice work! I'm impressed.

    No I did not. It looks more like two middle fingers here on my IPad.
  13. unclescott58 added a post in a topic Ford GT40 recommendations   

    I agree with everything your saying about the car. One of my all time favorites. But, by starting a second thread, will the other one get lost to the sands of time? It would be a shame, because there is a lot great GT40 information there too. Both on the models and real cars.

    I'm surprised that this new thread keeps going, with all the info on "The best of the GT40 kits?" thread else where here. It's okay of course. I just find it interesting. And wonder why that is?

    When I go to Culver's and get their 4 piece chicken diner, I always ask for my two sides to be onion rings and cheese curds. All that grease! I refer to it as my "heart attack special." It may not be good for me. But, I love it!
