  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 1963 Buick Electra Hood.

    I think I can help. I'm pretty sure I have one that I got in a parts lot off eBay many years ago. Only 63 Electra part in that lot as I can recall... Claes
  5. Modelhaus Inventory Sale!!!!

    They'll do that. Got my shipping notice for orders 243xx and 250xx four days ago.
  6. Modelhaus Inventory Sale!!!!

    Given that they probably will release one or two new kits annualy, as per the original e-mail I think they could have a pretty nice retirement issuing a kit or two from their catalog if the molds are still workable. Sort of "We will make 30 copies of the 61 DeSoto available" (I wish) on a first come, first served basis. A whole lot less stressful than filling a random order for kits/parts out of 10000 (guessing) items ávailable in the catalog.
  7. Modelhaus Inventory Sale!!!!

    Must have been a frenzy, I managed to get in two orders for parts 2.5 hours apart and order #s were 243xx and 250xx. 7000 orders in that time frame must be a dream for any mail order operation....
  8. Great Traders List

    Did a great trade with Steve Guthmiller. Lot's of nice e-mails going back and forth with large close-up photos to see what's involved. Nothing but high praise! Claes
  9. Vintage AMT & Johan Kit Bodies & Parts. Updated, 10/14

    PM sent on 63 Bonneville, 64 GTO.
  10. 68 GTX grille

    In the Mopar world, a better detailed grille for the 68-9 MPC Coronets would be nice. But I guess the market would be extremely limited....
  11. Chevy Corvair Ramp side pickup 1/25

    E-mail sent. I hope this gets off the ground!
  12. Stock hood for '69 AMX

    FWIW, my Y922 kit have the headrests. However, I have no idea of the history of the contents of the kit as this was bought off ebay some 10 yrs ago.
  13. New item: GM Door Handles--> Now Mopar!

    Got my B-body doorhandles together w a lot of other stuff from Joseph yesterday here in Sweden. Beautiful parts! And some can learn a lot about packing fragile items for shipping from Joseph. Thanks!
  14. Scale Production VW Double Cab Questions

    I have one, it's up there w Modelhaus qualitywise. Conversion work is difficult to spot and and all sink marks in the original Hasegawa kit are attended to. Bit pricey for a body and four additional parts but junking two kits to get there is about the same and then comes the work...
  15. 1959 Chevrolet Impala Flattop Sedan

    AAM did one shortly before they ceased operation some 10 years ago. Will NOT be easy to find now....
