  1. My scores from the Salisbury NC swap meet today. I was setup as a vendor and did fairly well with sales so.... The 72 Chevelle, 70 Buick Wildcat & the 40 Ford SD are all sealed in original bags. 37 Chevy is factory sealed. Bought 8 plus sized used display cases for a few dollars over what a new standard display case is selling for now. Also found a complete NOS Parma 4 inch FCR chassis. Got one of my "Holy Grail's" with the 62 Galaxie! Very restorable but missing the firewall, rear glass, steering wheel and the fender ornaments. Going to try using the fender ornaments from the 61 or 63 Galaxie, if not I'll fill them in and do a mild custom. 40 Ford box is near mint plus it came with the unobtainable original headers and coned wheel covers with near perfect chrome.
  2. A reminder for the Salisbury NC swap meet this Saturday!
  3. Found this image of the 68 Corvette on the Tower Hobbies site
  4. My haul for the week. Flock Hornet & IMSA Mustang from a local toy show today.both open complete but with decal issues. The bodies will be used for hard body slot cars. The KAT From AMT also from the toy show along with the 1/32 Green Hornet Black Beauty slot car Pinto from Michaels with a 40 off coupon.
  5. 40 Ford coupe, I hope they fix the poorr hood trim this go around. Would like to see them retool the original headers and wheel covers but Round2 probably blew their development budget on the "NEW" Coca-Cola decals.
  6. i've never used the Micro Sol but have had good results with the Krylon acrylic clear.
  7. As Dave asked what issues are you having with the JNJ decals? I've used some JNJ'S that were over 20 years old on oval track slot cars without problems. I usually clear coat them before I use them with Krylon acrylic clear. Usually 2 light coats will do it. Let the decals gas out for a couple of days. Do NOT use a lacquer clear as it is way to hot and will even damage new decals
  8. Found these on eBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/202669203669?hash=item2f3006a0d5:g:zakAAOSwWiJczFmW
  9. We will be holding two shows in 2022! The first event will be on April 2nd while the second show will be held on October 15th. Both shows will take place at the VFW in Statesville where our last show was held. We are finalizing the show classes and we will be posting them one week from today.
  10. Michaels is offering 40% off coupons again but you must sign up for Michaels Rewards to get them. Good onetime only for one regular priced item. I've received one a week over the past two weeks by emails from Michaels. Have been getting them on a Sunday and the coupon is valid through Saturday of the same week. Their model selection isn't what it used to be but I picked up the Revell 56 Del Ray at 40 off at my local Michaels
  11. Thanks for attending and for your greatly appreciated help with the show judging.
  12. Just want to thank everyone that made it to the show yesterday. We had 139 entries for the contest along with about 30 models on the display tables. All the vendors did well and are looking forward to our next show. Also a huge thank you to VFW Post 2031 in Statesvile, NC for providing us with an excellent venue for the event. We plan on having the show again next October and we are considering an event for April 2022. I will get some pics up and a list of the contest winners during the week.
  13. in need of a pair of taillight bezels and lenses for an AMT 60 Comet. Have parts to trade.
  14. One set of the plaques that will be awarded to the top 3 in each judged class for our show this Saturday,. For show classes see the first post.
  15. Swap Meet and Show. See attached flyer. If you have any other questions LMK
  16. Sad to hear. I met Rich at the South Carolina Modelers Association show in Simponsville, SC several years ago. He was down visiting LIARS member Tom Valenta and he noticed my Northern accent (I'm originally from Long Island as was Rich). Talked to him on and off during the event, a very personable guy.
  17. A reminder that the Fast Trax Raceway and Hobbies Swap and Show will be held this Saturday October 16th. All 30 tables have been sold and spectator response has been very good. Hope to see you there!
  18. From the Stevens International AMT product listings, hoping this is a typo on the price. AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1242 1/25 Surf Shark 1959 Cadillac Ambulance Custom $49.95 TBA
