  1. Greg Wahn's Eleanor

    Yea! Might call for an unexpected set of stripes, although I can't think of what might work at the moment ....
  2. Convoy Rubber Duck Mack

    I vaguely remember seeing that site. A search of his name turned up a forum thread with a link to it, which now doesn't function, however, the "Internet Wayback Machine" site has archive pages of it, where the latest in May 2015 seems to have quite a lot of still-visible photos within it: https://web.archive.org/web/20150518145925/http://www.stlouisdumptrucks.com:80/ConvoyMackTruck/index.html
  3. The First Air Force One, Flying Again...

    On the way to Heathrow as we speak. Up until my afternoon bike rides got too hot, I'd watch the incoming #289 arriving. Hard to miss a plane that size. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/BAW288 Aircraft Type: Boeing 747-400 (quad-jet)
  4. AMT Movin On Kenworth Announced

    I forget if you mentioned it elsewhere - I see you have at least one photo with the DiAntoni / Weitz watermark - have you corresponded directly with the guys (I think it is Barry Weitz) at the official Movin' On Facebook page?
  5. Need info and some parts.

    I'd bookmarked this old thread for its info on such a project - have you seen the growing accumulation of helpful build details in this current thread?
  6. eBay's newest crummy trick

    Forgot about that. What I do (since the usual "visit store" option is not like the old way) is click on the seller's feedback score, which takes me to the page where I can click on the "View items for sale" link. Don't know what evilbay's problems is these days ....
  7. eBay's newest crummy trick

    Threw me at first, too. I regularly bookmark various listings I like of old/rare just to see what the high bid ended up, and for a short time I thought it was an unusual number of guys who had yanked their auctions before the end. Deleted several of my bookmarks in frustration, but once I saw "the listing" word as a clickable link, I was able to re-load the deleted pages out of my links history pile. Evil bay ...... still occasionally a source for cheap parts & kits if a person is patient enough to keep a longterm eye on it.
  8. ONCE UPON A TIME..... (game)

    (not Tamiya Clear)
  9. That's all good info there, one of these days I'll have to add this one to my build list. Except I might cheat in one facet of it by lengthening the frame just a touch to suit my own preferences.
  10. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

    Wasn't aware of the rarity of the kit myself, so as the result of this thread, I bookmarked this current ebay auction for a built one to see where the price ends up. Started out with a $9.99 opening bid, ends on Sunday: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vntg-Aurora-Gen-II-Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang-1-24-Nicely-BILT-1968-Model-Kit-H92/352365393903
  11. Engine turning

    Myself as well, although with just some flat-end round rod (might have been either brass or just plastic), as described in my '57 T-bird under glass thread, 3rd & 4th photos in the sequence there. Tedious, ripped up several strips of Bare Metal Foil 'til I got the hang of it.
  12. Lawn mower in a kit?

  13. Bats look alike to me - for the one with the two grill openings in the front, I see quad headlights and a GTO badge that isn't there. On paint, my vote goes to a fairly deep metallic blue with double white stripes down the middle. Side pipes, too, if you want to get even more sacrilegious.
  14. Junk from an Ebay seller?

    Such was said about that no-name housepainter guy whose dropcloths ended up on gallery walls instead of in the dumpster. What was his name? Jackson Pollock?
  15. Junk from an Ebay seller?

    But is it art?
