    Wow...this is very interesting.

    Good job.
    About the '64 version, if you look and wait long enough, I'm sure a '64 will pop up on ebay, but since they're from 1964, I'll. bet they will be a bit pricey, but sometimes a nice built one, can be bought for less.

    Welcome in this small, but dedicated group of automotive modelers.

    Both Mpc as Monogram had the '78 El Camino, Monogram had two versions, a molded in black "Black Knight" stock kit and a molded in red El Macho, with another grille, camper top, and hood with a small air intake.
    The built looks like a combination of both Monogram kits

    Hang in there Harry, my thoughts are with you, and as others said, inform your family.
  6. Luc Janssens added a post in a topic What kind of job do you have?   

    Been in the automotive mfr biz for about 20 years, the better part in pilot (building prototype and pilot vehicles at R&D and then translating the whole shebang into a line jobs at the production plant.
    the later years I was in quality assurance, guarding quality and policing QC.
    Now I'm a heating technician, which was a serious career change, but what else can one do, when the big automotive manufacturers pull out of Belgium....

    If the lowrider community buys it in bulk, it stands a chance, but believe it, when I see it.

    WHAT!, No Pics!
    Art you're killing me!

    Can't believe it's almost a year since I saw that built test shot in Toledo and met you and Dave.
    Anyway the kit is on pre-order at my favorite US dealer.
  9. Luc Janssens added a post in a topic A reasonably SERIOUS new-tool '70 Charger Revell is hiding in plain sight...   

    That's a remainder from retooling the body tool, if you have an original chopped roof Pro-Modeler '69 Charger, you can see that there no such thing on the C-pillar.
    'bout the backseat, the Landy kit has one.
    Anyway, like what I see here, but will wait for the stock version.
    I too find it bizarre that there's no exposed headlamp option, if it were me, I would've molded the grille separate from the loop bumper, for easier detail painting and for offering the kit with or without hidden/exposed headlamps.

    AMG built BMW engine?
  11. Luc Janssens added a post in a topic MPC '79 Firebird T/A (Questions)   

    If we only could convince the guys at Revell to downscale their 1/8th scale '79 Firebird....

    Maybe not Harry, if the hole would be part of the core of the tooling.
    BTW Tim & Bob made me go back to this tread, after reading their comments, on the all new Amt Camaro glue kit postings...

    The parts breakdown of the Bronco looks real nice, too bad Revell didn't lay out the parts for the racing 'vette the same way, cuz I'm liking that one too.
    Da Boyz from Elk Grove did good.
  14. Luc Janssens added a post in a topic Rising price of our hobby   

    I don't think you have to pay 56% taxes on your salary and it goes up if one works more, like on weekends to have an extra buck, in short, we're punished for working.
    Also the utility bills are way up there, think we pay the highest price in the whole EU, for electricity.
    but back to the regular program now, the price of automotive model kits....(PM me for off-topic, thanks!)

    Filled in the online form, will see if anything will come from it, cuz my wife and me are fed up of the way they govern Belgium.
