    That works if you have the money. I am barely able to get just what I need for the moment and no extras.
    Thanks,
    Russ

    The micro-surface ones looked good until I saw the minimum shipping and handling fee. $12.50. Not good if you are only buying a $9.48 set.

    My wife is a crafter, so we go there fairly often when she has money to spend. I almost always end up getting a kit.
    They have the 40% off coupons online, and with our smart phones we can both use them in the same visit, just have to make two purchases instead of one. And you can use these coupons repeatedly, not limited to one a week or whatever the old paper ones were.
    And they (along with other craft type stores) have a ton of stuff we can use for modeling. I am always seeing stuff to buy. Problem is I never actually have gotten around to using most of it. I would have to actually build a model to do that.

    There is a thread about this down in the off topic forum.
    According to Harry P there is a money issue.

    Have any of you told the Round2 people about your complaints?
    I don't go to their site, so I wouldn't know the difference between old and new, but you may want to let them know you are unhappy with the new site and see what they say.
    IMHO, that is.

    Bob,
    Thanks for posting that. I had thought I had seen a photo etch set many years ago for this kit, but I couldn't remember for sure so I didn't want to post any possibly incorrect information.
    I thought I had one, but just went thru the kit box and nope. Darn.

    Thanks, Gary.
    Haven't had to do this yet but nice to know how when it comes up.

    Gary, are you saying you had to correct the warp after the hot water, or did it correct itself.
    Sorry, I seem to be a bit dense right now.
    Thanks,

    Hmmm, if that Datsun is the flip front I might change my mind. I just saw 4 wheel drive and lost interest.
    Any chance it still has any of the Lil Hustler suspension pieces included?
    Thanks, Russ

    I can't make out any details on the side of that car. Anyone know the name or other details so I could find out about it online?
    Thanks,

    Flying Wedge-MANY. I know it really didn't work well in real life, but it is my all time favorite dragster style.
    Trojan Horse- at least a couple. Maybe more. Owned a couple of Mustang IIs in the past. And that era funny car still looked like the real one.
    Bison-maybe one or two just for the engines. And maybe one to build, not into pullers but you never know.
    Snake dragster-maybe. I'd much rather have the funny car back.
    Others-not so much.

    Short of winning the lottery, no.

    Absolutely collect the new ones if you like them. My point earlier was just don't plan on retiring off the profits.

    What he said. The redlnes are collectible only because all us old guys had them as kids and want them back. Not going to happen with the new ones for the most part. 
    I was doing this with Star Trek stuff in the nineties until I realized that stuff would never be worth anything in my lifetime. Seeing what the stuff is going for now makes me want to give it away the prices are so low.
