  1. 1/25 AMT Peterbilt Wrecker

    Rather than provide an extra vinyl tire and plastic rim for the spare, AMT included the plastic tire that included the rim. A.J.
  2. 65 F100 4wd Conversion

    FYI - Except for the rear cab mount, the '65/'66 chassis is the same as the '69/'72 chassis just like the 1:1 trucks. A.J.
  3. White Western Star

    I think AMT is just amortizing what Coke must have charged them for use of their trademarked logo. Plus there are Coke collectors out there that will buy ANTHING that says "Coke" or "Coca Cola" on it no matter how irrelevant the connection is between the two.
  4. Post the oldest kit in your collection

    This is a 1925 Ford Model T roadster that I built in 1960 from original AMT kit 125 1925 Ford Model T double kit. There is no paint on this model except for some silver accents and red tail light. I found this when cleaning out my parents home after they both passed away and we were getting it ready for sale back in 1985. It somehow got wrapped in tissue paper by my father who kept it in a dresser drawer unbeknownst to me. I remember my father telling he he learned to drive on a 1924 Ford Model T roadster on his uncle's farm in Iowa in 1926, and I guess it had symbolic significance for him.
  5. Are these the same kit?

    Except for the snowmobile in the Ice Patrol kit, these two are the same. The Honcho is molded in black plastic and the Ice Patrol is molded in white plastic.
  6. I wish I knew the story regarding this one

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. A.J.
  7. 1960 Ford Pickup Chassis Swap?

    For what it is worth, Don Holthaus recommended using the AMT 1953 Ford F100 for their '57/'58/'60 cab conversions if you didn't buy a complete kit. For a short box pickup, if works perfectly. A.J.
  8. AC Mack Tractor Trailer

    Very neatly done. A.J.
  9. Revell 69 Hemi Charger in Sub Lime green

    One word: NICE. A.J.
  10. gtx

    Awesome build. A.J.
  11. 1968 Dodge Dart GSS (Mr. Norm)

    My high school calculus teacher had one of theses in a forest green color with the black vinyl top, black stripe, and black vinyl interior. Beautiful build.
  12. The attached image is from Tim Boyd's review of the new kit. I have attached a cropped image of the chrome tree showing the gas cap just to the lower right of the grille which is where it has been for a number of decades since the old MPC days. .
  13. Here are the images taken by Tim Boyd of the kits mentioned above.
  14. Well in chatting with Dave Metzger at the Warren show, he said that the 1965/66 4X4 Ford LWB F100 on display in built up form would likely not come out until 2021, and the Chevy, if it ever comes out, would be after that. Of the others on display, the 1965/66 Ford F100 SWB stepside pickup in on the boat, and should hit the US sometime later this month, with the Model Ling utility box version about a month or two after that. The 1965/66 SWB and LWB F100 standard bed kits will be out sometime in 2020. He also said that they were placing another order to build another batch of the 1969 Ford F100 4X4's that beat their expectations and sold out within weeks, and these should be available around the late summer.
  15. Moebius Trailers

    That's what I overheard Dave tell someone else asking that same question at the show.
