    The same here Nick,except for the part about the better half.

    I'm glad I bought the last reissue Big Deuce when I did. Prices on it are still crazy.
    I,for one. never really cared for the Lindberg kits. The Extreminator was kind of interesting,but I never bought one. The others looked too 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang for me. I remember watching an old Gumby cartoon tears ago ,and he was driving a Lindberg T bucket. I guess he was too big to fit in a 'Big T'.

    It looks well 'used'. I like it!

    Here's the ones you need. Have your visa card ready...these must be the inserts that were lost. Too bad.

    No they didn't. They had a distributor instead of the magneto like the later kits.

    I did Gerry. I kept the file you posted. most of the parts aren't a problem,just some of the little ones.

    You're right Bill. I can't believe I overlooked it. My eyes aren't very good.
    Once I put it in place,it does look like a horn.  My instructions don't have the chart with all the part numbers and the location on the sprue. All kits should have that.

    Thank you! My instructions aren't like that. I found it.

    Revell T1 Samba Bus question
    Is anyone working on the Revell VW Samba bus kit?
    I can't find part #22,which I guess is a steering box. It's not identified on the instructions,which is kind of strange,since everything else is. Do you know what sprue it is on?
    Here's a pic if that will help.
    Thanks.

    Yes Ebay (and other online sites) are full of ads like that. As far as his feedback goes ,yes it is low ,but for no more than he has ,it doesn't take much to drag it down.

    Has anyone done a review of the '57 Ford wagon gasser yet?
  15. pharoah added a post in a topic Monogram 1/8th Scale Drag T   

    A mere $10.98? I was 11 in 1963 and that would have bought 6 or 7 1/25th scale kits.  Those kits are now $20 to $30.
    I can understand Revell's unwillingness to make these again. The demand just isn't there. I used to work in a factory that molded plastic parts. The molds might be paid for ,but they still require maintenance ,the presses are $$$$$,Not to mention the cost of all that styrene ,the sheer size of the packaging ,add  labor and shipping and overhead... You get the idea.
    If you want a Big Drag bad enough,do like I did. buy the parts from Ebay. I made mind from original parts,new parts,whatever it took. The blower is the hard part. I found this one,and it was painted (nicely) so it may be resin. not sure.
