      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Thanks, fellas. This will be a nice addition, to my AMC stash.

    ' 68 Ambassador ragtop
    You know, the car that AMC never did build, but that Jo-han went ahead and kitted, anyway. I bought this from Wayne Farmer (moparfarmer) a couple of years ago. Had a clean break in the w/s frame, and bent vent window posts. I tried two different adhesives on the frame, and neither held. Finally got lucky last week, with some Lepages super glue. Once the break was repaired, I added new vent window posts, made from .040 x .040 styrene strips. The body is all done, save for the paint on the side marker lights. Engine pieces are painted, so that and the interior will be next.

    Now that's sharp! Did you take any interior pics?

    Got the Bronco kit yesterday, at the lhs. I'm thinking day two, open top, Testors One Coat Icy Blue, no stripe and black interior. The Melrose Missile came from my favorite epay seller. No race car here, however. Going to do a (mostly) facory stock looking "what if" Hemi street machine.

    Another twofer
    Prior to this, my least productive year was 2014, with only three finished. Last year I did seven, but only managed to
    get these two completed this year. Still, as long as a person has fun, that's all that matters, I suppose. Had fun with
    these two, the Moebius ' 65 Belvedere done as a six holer, and an AMT ' 68 Galaxie, box stock except for wheels and tires.

    A Jo-han ambulance, courtesy of the "vintage" shelf at the lhs. Never seen one molded in pink plastic before, but no matter. The price was decent, and the contents are mint.

    Sweet! I'd always thought these cars looked better with the chrome bumpers, but I might have just changed my mind!

    The last car my father ever bought, a 1967 Pontiac Grande Parisienne purchased in August, 1972.

    A built Jo-han ' 61 Chrysler New Yorker. Except for the fact the trim is painted rather than foiled, the builder did a very nice job. Tempted to leave it as is, but I probably won't.

    Same problem here, on two different computers.

    You can't hide the flaws with lighting like that. Good thing there aren't any.

    Great box art build!
