    Stephen,
    Where did you get the resin Grande body? My first drivable car was a 69 coupe and I have always wanted to do a model of it.
    Thanks,
    Russ

    Looking for Larry Harley, Mesa AZ
    He'd be around 65 or so these days, I haven't seen him in about 10 years.
    He used to go to all the swap meets and would hit all the thrift stores looking for kits of all subjects.
    Last I knew he still hadn't gone digital.
    Thanks,
    Russ

    We used to have one of those grills. It worked really well for just the two of us. Used it more than any other grill we have owned, before or since.

    The Michaels I've been too around north Phoenix/Glendale have had discounted kits, but they were all sold out already. Except for a couple of airplane ones here and there.
    Word got out fast apparently.

    Tom, is that BA better than the original at 27th and Cactus? I see them advertising on CL often, but we haven't made it out that way yet.
    Not that the original is bad, other than the bathrooms.
    Thanks,

    Revell/Monogram 57 Ford Del Rio Ranch Wagon photo etch?
    Wondering if anyone knows if Model Car Garage or anyone else is going to make a detail set for these? I know they make a set for the AMT 57, anyone use that for this kit? It doesn't have any side trim that I could find however.
    Also related to that question, if so is there any chance the side trim for the Sedan Delivery(AKA Courier) will be available?
    Planning on building mine as a sedan delivery Gasser. Would be nice if the trim could be found, or I will just go without it.
    I've been looking online, didn't realize that the wagon and the sedan delivery had such different trim.
    Thanks,
    Russ

    Thanks!
    That certainly looks like what I had.
    $500 though, wow. Guess that is something else I will never have again. Like my Schwinn 5 speed Stingray bike.

    Wow. Looks awesome.
    Are you sure this is the first?

    I misread this the first couple of times. You have to click on the star or the dot. This is working for me.
    Also, I don't know if Gregg and or Dave has been working on it, but I got desperate( hanging around the ER because of my mother in law(nothing major thankfully))for almost 12 hours today and used my phone to read the forum, and it seems to work better than a couple of days ago.

  12. russosborne added a post in a topic Glue Bomb 72 Gran Torino. Any ideas what to do?   

    Did you see my post in the other thread you had about this?
    Forget the 70 Torino, everything about that year except maybe the engine and trans is 100% wrong. Other than the name they are completely different cars.

    Uh, OUCH!!!
    I can relate, I am in constant pain. Sometimes just a 1 or 2, sometimes an 8 or 9. Usually somewhere in between.

    Thanks for the details.

  15. russosborne added a post in a topic help with information on this. 1/25 72 Gran Torino.   

    This is assuming you want to do a non Nascar car. Although back then they still built on the factory chassis, so it might be worth it even if you want a Nascar version.
    I don't know if they are the same scale, but the Starsky and Hutch car is a "correct" chassis and the interior is close for a 72 (some changes, like the 72 had unique front buckets if you are going with buckets. Again, if the scale is the same, or if you are like me and don't worry about fractions of an inch.
    If you want to do some online research into the real car, check out this site I am a member on. I did the link so it goes directly to the 72-76 Torino section.
