    Amy:
    Here's the box from the original MPC "Bearcat"...

    Kevin, going off on a tangent on this thread, I'd like to suggest to you and others who may have a significant collection, you should consider making plans for the disposition of your collection in the event that you don't live long enough to enjoy building them all (as well as your built-up units). The situation that has recently befallen the family of our departed Forum friend, Harry P., should serve as a lesson for all of us. As for me, I went through the process about 4 years ago of rounding up and cataloging my collection of kits, and making provisions for storing them. I also educated my wife on their value, and who she can trust to help sell them If she needs $$$ after I'm gone. Otherwise, I've instructed her to hang on to them to pass on to my grandsons when they reach a certain age so that they can enjoy them. In some respects, it's no different than someone having a coin collection, stamp collection, gun collection, etc etc. You just need to make your family aware that your models can hold *significant* value, and shouldn't be relegated to garage sale status. Of course, your wife may threaten to bump you off and sell them now (like my wife).😆

    Michael's comment pretty well sums it up for me, too. With some of these kits being extremely rare and/or high priced, it's not the kind you want to build when you're still honing your airbrushing skills, for example. 😉 I have plans to build just about every kit that I buy....

    Added a '71 Monte Carlo to my recently acquired '72 unit.
    Should make for a decent restoration....

    I bought a few of them over the years in hopes of collecting enough parts to build one (1) decent unit. 
    Here's of my "parts cars".

    Got my last order from the Modelhaus today!😀
    Bittersweet experience; I was looking forward to receiving all of the goodies, but sad to think that there won't be any more....

    I seem to recall that someone once posted photos here on the Forum of a weathered and "rusted" Corvette. It was very well done, and got a lot of comments, until someone pointed out that fiberglass doesn't *rust*😉
    Anyway, I agree with Snake; go for it!

    It's been a few days since you posted your photos. Has the model put itself back together yet😉
    Great job on your build!

    Really cool, David!
    However, I wish we had the original MPC '33 Chevy tooling still intact....

    Tom - I really appreciate it! Saves me a lot of leg work (or maybe saves me from carpel tunnel?😜)
