    The molds are probably long gone, but the Aurora Mod Squad '50 Mercury wagon had figures of Pete, Linc and Julie. I still have the Julie. Here she is in 1/25 scale:

    And here she is as the 50-foot Woman:

    I've had a few Mini-Lindys over the years; just have three now - an unbuilt fire truck, an AMC Gremlin, and a school bus that I kitbashed into a 1936 Ford Army bus using parts from a 1/72 scale Japanese WWII fuel truck.

    More stuff to pack up???
    Congrats, Steve - couldn't happen to a nicer guy!

    At the model club meet last night, I picked up a set of chrome reverses with Baby Moons for the '65 Econoline movie truck project, and a sharp set of Appliance wire mags that should look good on my '69 LTD when I get around to it. Thanks to Steve G. for bringing that huge bin of tires and letting us root through it!

    Good score! Fiddly kit to build (and the rubber tires split after I built it) but one of my favorite old planes. If I got another, I'd like to build it as one of the target tugs based at Las Vegas during WWII; their last hurrah before the smelter:

    Do any of the Ollie's have the Lindberg Coronado boat kit yet?

    Sold for $1358! i***r came in with ten seconds to go, holding off previous winner y***a and c***n's final bids in the last four and five seconds. What a race!

    Wonderful display! What did you use for the plank flooring?
    And are you going to try a resin '48 Tudor Sedan next?
  9. ChrisBcritter added a post in a topic 1940 Ford Sedan custom Built in 1962!   

    Probably because it was an effective way to get a tuck-and-roll look; I imagine it showed up in a model car magazine and everybody tried it (including me). IIRC, Hank Borger did a mild custom '49 Merc in Car Model using corduroy in the early '70s and it was an old technique then.

    Bravo for seeing this one through to the end - it was well worth the effort. And you'll certainly never see another like it; after reading through the build thread, nobody else is going to want to try that!

    Got a set of NOS '62 Pontiac Grand Prix grilles for my AMT '62 Catalina - thanks so much to Steven for taking time out from his moving preparations to send 'em!
    Too bad AMT never did a Grand Prix version of the Catalina kit; the grilles were a custom part in the long-gone original '62 Bonneville hardtop.

    The Deerfield, IL store has all three sizes; the 4mm was $11.99 ($7.19 + tax with the coupon).

    Cool! Does the '57 Ford have the Styline front and rear ends?

    Not a big deal from my experience with X-El reissues; they're actually softer plastic, tapered and ridged for a jam fit - I got 'em out with my fingernails. The interior/glass is probably heat-swaged in like the original promos.
