    If you cut a horizontal slice in the rear quarter, you can correct it to approximate a Johan.

    I thought you were going to say holes for antennae and mirrors. Besides the colored plastic,  some, maybe all Craftsman kits had open holes for accessories

    True, Iowa not Illinois. There is always hope , but we have to realistic

    It's not clear to me if these tools survived the trip from Detroit to Baltimore and out to Dyersville, IL. It wouldn't surprise me if some of the tools were  taken away  like the 1934 Ford pickup that ended in Lindberg's hands. If ERTL didn't do them , they are probably lost

    I think it will have roll pans and other custom trearments but the add on Styline parts were a short run. Even the 57 TBIrd had them.

    I didn't like any cars made after 1971.

    It's become an issue of how original parts will Round2 reissue?

    DO you mean Custom parts or STYLINE parts?

    It might be like the 50 Ford where 1/2 the Styline parts returned. I looked at the Round2 picture and it appears to be a 1970-1972 issue kit.  The styline parts disappeared in the late 60s I believe. No sure if the chrome axles are going to be there or not too. The original kit gave the option of running a straight metal axle or steerable wheels in the front. It will be interesting to see.

    I thought about that trailer but a 22" boat really needs a 4 wheel trailer for the load. The old AMT trailer from the 1960-1961 AMT pickup trucks might be a be starting point with much modification.

    The Owens has 2 nice Evinrude 75 hp outboard motors. The other kit, the Century Coronado is an inboard. It was one of the hottest selling boats in 1959*1960. These kits realy need a 4 wheel boat trailer which is up to the modeler. The AMT boat /trailer was a Chris-Craft Cutlass , also a popular boat

    Moderator, move this to general, if you please

    Because it was exactly here it happened. Mabye, general topic would be better. Snake is correct. It was the ad that changes. I should have snapped a cell photo. It was not exactly a virus but a link to extract my name and password; to get full entry to my computer, they wanted my cell number too by insisting that I call. Ctrl-Alt -delete did no good as did pulling the battery. Mal Ware found nothing. I als able to X out close each browser window , then it disappeared. I hope for good.
