  1. Just recently ordered some door handles from him after Tom Geiger and Steve Guthmiller recommended them. Prompt response to my eMails. Prompt shipment after I placed my order. Quality of the product was excellent!
  2. Have bought several items from this fellow. Always good quality. Quick shipment.
  3. Fellow plastic fans - I finally acquired a decent AMT ‘66 Ford Falcon kit. I plan to build it stock as a replica of my Dad’s car back when I was a kid. Been looking forward to this project for a long time! Now that I finally have the kit, I see that it’s got the old style “promo” chassis with all sorts of advertising stuff molded into it. I can live with the lack of detail, but I can’t stand this other stuff all over the chassis, and it would be a nightmare to remove. I’m looking for suggestions for a “clean”, more detailed chassis that I can substitute for the old original. BTW, Dad’s car was a plain-Jane powered by the straight 6 (I’ve already found a resin engine). Thanks, in advance, for your help!
  4. I know this is a long shot, but I’m looking for the rear seat for the AMT ‘66 Ford Falcon. See the photo below. The kit offered the option to build a Gasser, so the rear seat could be deleted if you weren’t doing a “stock” build. I figure there’s gotta be someone out there that built the Gasser version, and still has that seat leftover in their parts box. I have stuff to trade - will make it worth you while. Thanks -
  5. There other “interesting” things to be found in the Ohio river that might wind up in a Cincinnati restaurant😉
  6. Kurt: See attached photo. IIRC, it’s available in the roadster kits, too, and likewise in the ‘73 and ‘75 Corvette kit as well. The ‘75 was reissued by Round 2 in recent years, but I don’t think it includes the Wankel engine - maybe someone on the Forum can confirm that for us. Anyway, the Wankel is definitely in the old original issue kits. Mike
  7. I like it! That color looks good on it.....
  8. Or, look for an MPC 1974 or 1975 Corvette kit. In anticipation of the rotary-engined Corvette of the future, MPC included an optional Wankel rotary engine in their Vette kits for a couple of years. You’ll have to shop around a bit to find the Vette kit at a decent price, but they’re out there. I was fortunate to find just the rotary engine alone from one of those “kit buster” sellers on evilBay.
  9. Here’s how to fix a busted bumper on a modern car😝 Zoom in on the rear bumper....
  10. At least the flathead in a Crosley makes sense. I’m with Ace-Garageguy on the Camaro. I don’t get it, other than for shock value....😮 But then again, I’ve seen a lot of strange things over the years. A Pinto with a 428 V8, a Mazda rotary in a Henry J, a 455 Toronado mounted in the bed of a Corvair “Rampside” pickup, etc etc etc
  11. Although I don’t have a photo handy, I’ve seen a flathead installed in a Crosley. It fit pretty, well, too. 😆
  12. R.I.P. Officer Mahoney...
  13. Thanks, Tom. I have already contacted Joseph to see about ordering them. Question: When you use them, did you just glue them on, or “pin” them???
  14. A convoy of Ford iron headed down I-75 this afternoon, just south of Cincinnati. Wonder if there’s a convention somewhere?
