    and the metalizer can be buffed till you get to a sheen you're happy with

    I'd like to see some Jeep pickups too, like the Comanche (sp?) from the early eighties.

    I would also add '81-92 Dodge Ram pickups and Ramcharger to that list, that body style has never been done in plastic. I would do 2x4, 4x4, short bed, long bed
    and maybe even a club cab and dually.  I would include lots of accessories for the 4x4 kits too.
  4. chitownbri added a post in a topic Build journal anyone?   

    I keep a log book for my nascar builds, I find it helps to keep track of what I need for donor kits. I keep them
    categorized according to make and year group(i.e. '95-99 chevy).
    I write down the year, car#, sponsor and then i have columns that I check off when i have the
    donor kit i need. And then when the build is done i highlight the entry in yellow so that way i know
    not to count that one anymore. As for my street cars and trucks i don't keep any records of any sort, its a
    hobby for me so therefore its irrelevant to me as to how much i paid for it, how long it took to complete it and so on.

    The MPC GMC Fall Guy truck has the bed you're looking for, its based off of the same tooling as the Chevies. The Fall Guy truck is being reissued in February 2016
    as just a regular '84 GMC truck.
  6. chitownbri added a post in a topic NEW! An advance and detailed look at the final production version of the new Moebius Models 1961 Pontiac Ventura kit....   

    A quick question for Dave;I was just thinking would it be feasible to include an extra grille/bumper in the upcoming Catalina kits to replace the ones in the Ventura kits?
  7. chitownbri added a post in a topic I'm not sure . . .   

    Cool to see that I'm not the only reefer mechanic on this board!  I know I've left several tools inside them too.
    The one that pisses me off the most is the matco led inspection light I left in some guys tractor after working on his tripac.

    I'm pretty sure that pic was from the big warehouse fire here in Chicago a few winters ago.

    I agree on the storage box lines, get rid of them. I also hope they provide the right bumper/grille combination(preferably the fall guy grille).
  10. chitownbri added a post in a topic Are NASCAR kits falling out of favor?   

    I used to be the same way, I wouldn't miss out on watching a race. Now I rarely make an effort to watch a race these days but I still enjoy building nascar models.
  11. chitownbri added a post in a topic AMT and MPC new releases for 2016   

    With it being under the MPC label i wonder if its going to be the fall guy truck?
  12. chitownbri added a post in a topic AMT display case truck   

    I wish they would make a display case for big rigs.
  13. chitownbri added a post in a topic Most accurate kit(s) ever (1/24-25)?   

    Monogram's Chevy S10 and GMC Syclone kits are pretty good.
  14. chitownbri added a post in a topic This ever happen to anyone else?   

    I have a can of testor's sublime green thats doing that to me but not as bad as yours.
