    Just finished my first trade on the board. It was with "Bigtruck" and went as perfect as one could go. Thanks!

    Thanks for all the information everyone. I ended up getting one in a trade here. I'm really looking forward to building that one.

    Dug through the attic
    I went through my stash last night and pulled stuff out I know I'll never build. They are all complete. The Dale Earnhardt car includes Slixx decal sheet 1311. The Mustang has the motor mostly assembled and lightly brush painted. Looks like acrylics were used. The chassis  and interior were also sprayed black but not assembled. The 57 bagged Thunderbird is from the Ford classics set so no box and it's missing the instructions. The rest have been opened and looked at but that's it. I'm looking for any kits with the unusual custom options like the AMT 3-1 kits have. Or just unusual cars like AMC's,  seventies customs etc. I like 60s-70s cars with custom options. I also like 30s luxury cars. I don't build race or muscle cars. Other than that I like a lot. I am looking for a Competition Resins Chicago Patrol Mustang II. My buddies dad drove it so I want to build him one. I realize this is my first trade post so I will gladly ship first with someone that's established on here. Thanks! www.dbcustomleather.com

    AMT Matador X
    Does anyone know what these usually go for. I like oddball stuff with the crazy custom parts. I'm thinking of hunting one of these down. Thank you, Duane

    AMT 63 Galaxie
    Thanks to Sledsel this long stalled project is back on track. I haven't built anything in 12 years. My work really took off etc. I'm forcing myself to take weekends of for things like this. It's going to sit on an AMT 58 Edsel chassis and floor pan. I'm also using the Edsel motor. Much more detail than what came in the Galaxie kit and I could care less if  its authentic or not. I'll be glad to see it finally finished.

    AMT 63 Galaxie hood
    Hello, I've had a project 80% complete for over ten years and I've decided to finish it up. I can't find the hood after tearing the house apart. I need the hood for a 63 AMT Galaxie. I can paypal or whatever. Thanks! , Duane duane@dbcustomleather.com

    A good friend of mine just finished restoring the real 1:1 car. It's a neat car. Nice job on the model.
