  1. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Mark, any idea where this comes from? I take it none of the promos had the wells for antennas, spotlights and mirrors? And this is molded in white. Got it as a built up in gold paint long ago off ebay....
  2. What did you see on the road today?

    Thanks Tom! Never have seen this before but it obviously had some publicity on the net. And I certainly don't need more silly ideas.... /Claes
  3. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Happened to see this comment and many thanks! I have an ailing 62 Imperial and happened to have a bag of 63 Buick custom parts not knowing the taillights were there. Thanks! /Claes
  4. What did you see on the road today?

    Tom, do you happen to have more pics of the chopped VW van in the backgound of this pic? Looks interesting... /Claes
  5. Vintage Auto World catalogs

    Thanks, Mark!
  6. Vintage Auto World catalogs

    Mark, do you have a pic of that catalog?
  7. Vintage Auto World catalogs

    Ca '59-60. From memory, the left has the '60 annuals (kits, frictions) listed and the AMT 27T Roadster as "coming", the right one has the '61 Jo-han frictions listed as well as the '60 kits and the AMT 25T listed as "new".
  8. Vintage Auto World catalogs

    These are the two oldest I have; were there any issued previous to these and what did they look like? /Claes
  9. Just a scrubbing w warm water and dishwashing detergent. As for the resin itself, there's nothing to trim or sand whatsoever....
  10. Here are a couple of wheels (5" & 7") that I had plated at Kustom Krome. Tire is FMR 022 BFG 295/50 that's no longer available in white resin. Somewhere I have same tires painted w Tamiya rubber black & wheels w chrome spray but I can't find them now.

  13. Wanted: Plastic modelkits history / pictures .

    Well, there are some sources. Between the books by Tom Graham ( Monogram Models, Remembering Revell Model Kits) , Tim Boyd (Collecting Model Car & Truck kits, Collecting Muscle Car Kits), Dennis Doty (Model Car Building) and Terry Jessee (Hot Rod Model Kits), you can piece together a lot of history. Obviously lacking is the definite history of AMT, a book yet to be written. The Doty book(s) had an appendix with then current mags and books and also same for vintage items (still vintage but more now ). R&C Models 6/64 has a couple of pages on Monogram, 7/64 (Revell 4p), 8/64 (AMT 4p), 9/64 (Cox 4p), 11/64 (Aurora 4p), 1/65 (MPC 4p). AMT Model Car Handbook also has 6p of AMT history. Hope this helps. Claes
  14. AMT 64 AMT Craftsman Chevelle

    Modelhaus did one, way back. You have to go back to their 1995/96 catalogs to find it. Simplified at $29 and with the shiny stuff from the promo $42 in '95. Nothing currently AFAIK.
  15. 1963 Buick Electra Hood.

    Have to ponder that one. If I can't think of anything, its going your way anyhow. I'll send along a few pics later on today. Claes
