  1. PERSONALLY, I HAVE NOT BUILT ANY MILITARY KITS IN YEARS.....BUT I USED TO AS WELL....FIGURES, 1/35 AND 1/72 HO/OO AIRFIX, 1/72 AND 1/76 ARMOUR, 1/35 ARMOUR. EVEN SOME AURORA MONSTER AND TV RELATED KITS FOR A FRIEND AT ONE POINT,,,,BUT, CARS ARE AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE TOP INTEREST FOR ME....THOSE GOOD OL' MPC, AMT, JOHAN, ETC MUSCLE CARS, DRAG CARS, PICKUPS AND ALL , LIKE MICHAEL CORLEONE SAYS...' PULL ME BACK IN' EVERYTIME....HECK, I LOVE 1/64 DIECAST VEHICLES TOO, AND AM USUALLY TRIPPING OVER GUT LOADS OF THEM AROUND HERE AS WELL....ENJOY IT ALL, THAT'S MY ADVISE,,,IF YOU LIKE IT AND ENJOY IT, TRY IT ALL............ACE..😅
  2. ....SOME MPC EARLY PRO STOCKERS, MPC 75-77 VENTURA, 71-72 ROAD RUNNER, AMT 72 VENTURA,,,,,AND THE AMT 69 COBRA HARDTOP, YES, YOU KNOW THE ONE....THEY WOULD BE THE TOPS OF MY HIT PARADE.......the ACE....😂
  3. THANKS JIM, FOR NEWS I WAS EXPECTING TO HEAR....I HAVE EXHAUSTED ALL POSSIBLE LEADS UP AROUND HERE TO GET THE OLDER GOOD STUFF, SO MAYBE LEARNING THE SHARPIES TREATMENT MAY BE THE WAY NOW.....BEST, ACE...
  4. HI JIM, IF I MUST CHOOSE BETWEEN ULTRA FOIL AND JUST CHROME BMF, WHICH IS THE BETTER OF THEM OF COURSE BOTH BEING JUNK, AS EVERYONE SAYS....I WILL BE ALMOST OUT OF MY NEW IMPROVED SHEET SOON....THANKS, ACE
  5. ......SO MY NEXT QUESTION IS....IF JUST ULTRA BRIGHT AND JUST CHROME BMF ARE THE ONLY TYPES AROUND THESE DAYS, WHICH IS THE BETTER OF THE TWO HERE, BEING EVERYONE IS SAYING BOTH ARE BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH, IF I NEED TO GET SOME....THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR INPUT...ACE
  6. HI ROGER, LOOKS LIKE THE AMT AND NOT THE MPC....THE TRIM DETAIL IS VERY SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT ON THE CAB, AS I RECALL, AND, THE NEW KIT HAS THE BOWTIE BADGE AS A SEPARATE PIECE TO INSTALL, WHERE THE ORIGINAL HAD THE BADGE AS PART OF THE GRILLE SECTION...BTW, I ALSO SEE FROM SOME RECENT BUILDS OF THE NEW KIT, THE GRILLE/ BUMPER AREA SEEMS TO FIT LESS PERFECT THAN THE MPC....THE NEW CHASSIS IS IDENTICAL, BUT SPORTS DUAL EXHAUST WHERE THE ORIGINAL WAS SINGLE PIPE ONLY....ROGER, IF YOU CHECK YOUTUBE, THERE IS AN EXTENSIVE BUILDUP OF THE NEW KIT POSTED, AND IT WILL DISPLAY ALL YOU ARE WISHING TO KNOW....HOPE THIS HELPS.....REGARDLESS OF THE SHORTCOMINGS OF THIS KIT, I STILL LOVE IT...LOL.....BEST, ACE....😅
  7. EBAY ITEM NUMBER....174872333004.....MPC 72 CHEVELLE SS SLASHER KIT.....CAN BE BUILT STOCK, BUT YOU WILL NEED YOUR OWN STOCK WHEELS....NICE KIT, CURRENT BID 30 BUCKS....MUCH EASIER than a slice and dice on taking a 70 to a 71/72 car....much easier...hope this helps...Ace.....
  8. VERY, VERY SHARP....GREAT LITTLE TRUCK, AND LIGHTNING FAST BUILD..... ACE...😅
  9. ABSOLUTE KNOCKOUT......JUST AS GOOD AS IT GETS....LOVE IT, THANKS FOR SHARING, the ACE...☺️
  10. I HAVE , UNFORTUNATELY PURCHASED ONLINE FROM TIME TO TIME, A FEW RACING CHAMPION 1/64 PIECES THAT SUFFERED FROM THAT CRACKING PAINT PROBLEM....RIGHT IN THE CAN THEY GO, BECAUSE AS STATED HERE THERE IS NO FIX UNLESS A COMPLETE PAINT RESTORATION IS IN THE WORKS....CHEAPER TO JUST WAIT AND FIND A MINT ONE, I WOULD SAY.....ACE..
  11. I HAVE NEVER CONSIDERED ALL THESE MEASURING DETAILS, BUT WILL STICK WITH USING THE BMF I HAVE ON HAND....IF I START USING KITCHEN FOIL, IT WILL END UP THAT I WON'T HAVE WHAT'S NEEDED TO COOK DINNER...LOL.....the ACE...😂
  12. I HAVE LOTS OF EACH OF HOT WHEELS AND MB, AS WELL AS OTHER 1/64 VEHICLES, BUT YOUR COMMENT ABOUT ' LOST THERE WAY' STANDS SO TRUE....THE AMOUNT OF PURE JUNK ONE NOW SEE'S ON THE PEG'S IS SICKENING....YEARS BACK WHEN I SPOTTED THE FIRST HW TOILET SEAT I KNEW TROUBLE WAS BREWING...LOL...THEY ARE TARGETING CHILDREN I SUPPOSE, AND YOUR COMMENT ABOUT JDM...YAWN...IS ALSO FACT...HOT WHEELS HAVE HIT THAT MARKET HARD THE LAST FEW YEARS, AND I CAN TELL YOU HERE IN CANADA IT'S ABOUT ALL THEY ALL JUMP FOR....MATCHBOX AND MAISTO ALL THE WAY FOR THIS GUY.....the ACE...😄
  13. ALL I CAN ADD TO THIS VERY NEAT THREAD IS THAT I HAD THE 71 WEDGE BY MPC IN THE FALL OF 71, GRACED BY AN MPC 71 CAMARO PRO STOCKER, AND REGARDLESS OF ITS TANDEM SET UP, I JUST LOVED IT....AND STILL LOVE IT NOW, AS I HAVE BOUGHT 2 OF THE NEW ISSUES AND MAY GET MORE....ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING MPC KITS EVER, AND AFTER ALL THOSE YEARS FROM HAVING MY ORIGINAL, IT STILL GIVES ME THAT BUZZ .....THATS MY 2 CENTS....the ACE....😂
  14. I'LL BE SHORT AND SWEET....JUST OUTSTANDING, PERIOD.......the ACE...😉
  15. HUMIDITY WOULD BE THE ONLY THING I CAN THINK OF....I USE TAMIYA EVERYTHING FOR SPRAYS AND HAVE NOT SEEN THIS MYSELF.....ALL I CAN OFFER...ACE..
