  1. Lovely. Still the coolest (IMO) bicycle, in real life or miniature ever designed.
  2. Just picked up my copy today. A very nice kit. But, the decals even make it nicer. The factory "Sport Truck" striping is really cool. I love it. I'm glad to see this kit back.
  3. Yea, the C-300 is considered a true "letter car" by the "300 Letter Car Club." Chrysler openly admitted that they skipped "I" because it could be too easily mistaken for the number "one." Never underestimate the stupidity of the general buying public. Even back then. So "I" was out. Again, great pictures Stephen. Thanks for sharing them.
  4. Steve, can we see the rest of your '62 300? Your work is always the best.. The last time I had one of these kits, was sometime back in early 80's. It's been a long time. I seem to remember that car had the 300H markings on the trunk, but really represented a non-letter car in other details. Am I remembering that correctly? I can't remember why I thought the kit did not correctly represent a true letter car? Maybe it was the interior that tipped me into thinking that. I'd love to see photos of what came in the USA Oldies kit. Especially the interior and dashboard.
  5. Beautiful. I can't wait to get mine.
  6. Thank you. It was a work of love.
  7. Good looking Ford.
  8. Very nice. Though, the face in that kit reminds me more of astronaut Dave Bowman, than Neil Armstrong. Still, you did a very nice job on the kit.
  9. Beautiful. Very nice.
  10. Kool! That I'd like to see.
  11. Yes, I did build all of kits in the display. And yes, that is at the Mississippi branch library in Fridley, MN.
  12. The car model displays our club has done in the past has been a big hit. Especially with the kids. Our club has, and is again participating with the library in their STEM summer program. And will be doing a model building demonstration there in late August. Now if we could just get kids to join the club. Despite our past displays being done with other members of our local model car club. This Apollo display was done by me personally. As some of you may have noticed, I like to build other things, besides cars. Though car will always be number to me. Thanks to you and Ray above for the kind words.

    AMT 56 T-Bird

    Roofs with and without portholes were available both in '56 and '57. Only no portholes in '55. Rarely do you see a '56 or '57 without the portholes. But it could be had. And I like the looks better, despite the advantages of seeing things better with the holes.

    AMT 56 T-Bird

    I'm waiting for Round 2 to reissue AMT's 1/16 scale '55 Bird. A simple, but nice kit. Come on Round 2.
  15. At a local library, I put up a display of mainly models, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. I'm pretty please with how the display turned out. I don't know if the photos do it justice.
  16. I like both front ends. But in general, I like the RS front end at times a little better. But, I'll sure be glad to see, and buy, a Camaro without the RS front end. With the one piece, full width bumper. As for stuff being released in The July 2019 video, there was nothing of interest to me, other than the Auto World '74 Buick Estate Wagon. Yet they already announced a showed us that last month. So there is nothing there for me. Still I enjoy watching Chad's videos each month.
  17. Another one I'm waiting to get my hands on. Should have this, and the '77 Pinto, in my grubby little hands by this next Wednesday.
  18. The front nose on the '77 and '78 Pinto IMO were just plain ugly. By far the worst looking Pintos ever. That said, I can't wait to get my hands on this kit. As you guys know, I have a soft spot in my heart (or that in my head?) for these loser cars.
  19. Picked up the following three from Hobby Lobby yesterday. I had no plans on buying any of three. But, at $7.49, I couldn't pass them up. I have nice buildups of the Lincoln and the Mercury, so I really didn't need those two in particular. But, the price and retro box art sold me on adding those two. A buddy of mine, whom went with me to the Hobby Lobby, also picked up the AMT '57 Chrysler 300C, '58 Edsel, and MPC El Camino (with mini bike). Also at $7.49 each! Though to pass them up at those prices.
  20. Just picked the Scout SS II kit on clearance at Hobby Lobby yesterday. At $7.49 I couldn't pass it up. I already have the chrome grille and bumpers in the "purple pond" as we speak. Other than the non stock exhaust setup, the custom racing seats, and lack of a spare tire, I'm pretty pleased.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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!
