  1. I made my own using some Evergreen plastic strips and headlamps from an MPC Dodge Omni 2 dr. Here's what it looks like in my MSP Tahoe.
  2. The future of offroading?

    One other thing to keep in mind is that the batteries are HEAVY, so where you go off-roading would be important as well. When I was working for Chrysler, we had developed several hybrid and all electric vehicles. The amount of torque from electric motors is unbelievable, so much so that we used torque-limiting software in the control modules. Disable the software, and you'd smoke the tires on even moderate throttle acceleration, which would get you all sorts of stares when driving an electric mini-van.
  3. Here's one I build when it first came out. Nice kit. FYI - Those wheels can used used for Chevrolet police wheels if you leave the center hub chrome, but paint the rest of the wheel semi-gloss black like I did on the MSP Tahoe. A.J.
  4. 1/25 AMT '34 Ford Pickup

    Of course the good thing about this release is that they'll be using the polished molds that give the plastic its shine. That would be great for novice builders who still don't paint their kit bodies. A.J.
  5. 1/25 AMT GMC Astro 95 Semi Tractor Cab

    Spoke with one of the guys from Round 2 at a model show awhile back, and he said that they did have the turbine insert, but wasn't sure of its condition. I suggested that they offer it as a standalone kit like their chrome sleeper. He said that sounded like an idea worth considering IF the insert was usable. Let's hope that it is available again. A.J.
  6. Ford LTL 9000

    WOW!!!
  7. Moebius F100 4x4- Out of Stock?

    I happened to buy the last two at my local hobby shop this afternoon. He got 12 in on Thursday that he ordered two months ago, and my purchase was for the last two that he had. He's got another dozen on order from his distributor, but he hasn't received a promise date as to when they'll be shipped. A.J.
  8. 1978 Dodge Power Wagon

    While on ebay, look for one of the 8' beds from several of the older MPC Dodge pickup kits as well. The 8' bed can be sectioned down to the 6' length you are looking for. This in exactly what Don Holthaus did to create the master for their resin conversion. A.J.
  9. 1978 Dodge Power Wagon

    Modelhaus did. You may want to look for them on ebay. A.J.
  10. Class 325 is Complete

    One word: AWESOME! A.J.
  11. Lee, I have one of those original Italeri #778 Opel Blitz kits if you are still looking for one. You can contact me direct at maxwell48098@yahoo.om or send me a message via the site here. Thanks, A.J.
  12. I like how this particular kit was priced at $1.59 down from the $2.00 retail price. The "200" after the 8734 was the suggested retail price AMT printed right on all of their kit packaging. The first $2.00 kits were the '60 Pickups and the double kit 1925 Ford Model T kits A.J.
