    Here's my take on the kit, done as a 40s vintage custom..

    It's not bad. It's about what you'd expect for a kit first released in the 1960s. It you're doing an early custom, it has a very nice Lasalle grille and moulded headlights which the AMT kit doesn't have.   THe Custom taillights are ugly little chrome blobs, but that's easily dealt with by filling in the holes, and raiding the parts box for something better.   The wheel backs are just the right size to fit the standard AMT tires, so you have lots of options for hubcaps.

    I can't imagine them not being reissued at some point.

    I got pointed to that one by someone who's post somehow got sent over to another thread.  Browsing through the galleries right now

    Okay, to keep it simple, Pre ww2 and earlier from anywhere on earth, and stock.  Nothing wrong with hot rods and post war stuff, and I build both, but there are already plenty of forums that cater to them.  
    I'm not dissing this forum, or any others, but there are specialty forums that catered to other automotive niche interests.  I was just curious if one existed that catered to this one.

    Sounds about as good a definition as any,  though I'lll be generous, and include things from the same general timeframe and earlier that aren't technically considered classics

    Classic Car model forums?
    I like building the classics, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any forums that specialized in classic car models, or at least had a subfurom?  The only one I can think of Scalemotorcars, but they specialize in large scale models.

    If they had to get rid of those portholes on the hood to do it, I would not be too upset.

    Love the subject, and you did a great job of it.   Just shows that you don't have to wait for a kit to get the model you want.

    And I'm sure nobody whipped up the hysteria to try and drive up the value of their own stash.

    I know some people who are speculating in bitcoins who are letting none of this discourage them.  Every you get these speculation booms, people think this time will be different for sure.

    Talk about making a silk purse out of a sow's ear!   A great job on a not so great kit.
