  1. Revell '76 Ford Torino

    I agree with you there. So the difference is about 5/32" then.
  2. Have a palatte cleanser.

    Say, am I the only one who think it looks like an updated Lancia Stratos more than anything else? https://goo.gl/images/KqHPtZ
  3. Welcome New Mods!

    Respect guys! It is a much needed and often unpleasant job, but somebody has got to do it. Thank you.
  4. Positives to come from the Revell Deal?

    Positives to come from all of this? Good predictions are hard to make, and especially about the future - I'll stay out of that for now. If it were to happen that the new Revell (GmbH) does not serve the American marketplace well, and there are glaring fields of high demand left untended. Then that may give Moebius, Galaxie, Pegasus and whomever space to grow and prosper. Just a thought..
  5. Serious poll ,Model A or Deuce Coupe ?

  6. Tamiya Mini Cooper 1275S Rally

    Lots of good work there. Now a heads up about this kit; Make sure to test fit the front suspension before you glue it in place. It has a tendency to end up sitting low.
  7. Why don't we have a nice Plastic Crosley kit ?

    I'd buy one (only).
  8. How many builds?

    I only done at a time. At one time I tried the assembly line approach to get more models finished for a local contest. The idea was to consolidate various steps like painting all of the chassis parts in one go and so on in order to save time. I did get more models done in less time that way, but the lesson learnt was that the quality suffered badly. It didn't allow for the creative juices to flow like they do when focusing all my attention on one build.
  9. Galaxie trailer. Has anyone biult one?

    The advice given me from a well-meaning club mate upon my buying one, was to pay attention to the vertical sides of the floor/chassis part. Apparently they are angled a little bit for mold release purposes. And if you just glue the sides onto there like the instructions say, and let it set - the it can get hard to get the roof to fit right. I never got to it myself, but that's what he told me. For what it is worth..
  10. AMT Parts Packs - Your Ideas & Suggestions?

    I would buy a parts pack that had a slew of nice custom and aftermarket air filters. Another thing I have been wanting for the longest time is a skid steer or compact excavator on a small trailer. That would go very nicely behind the Lindberg 4X4 F-150. If that cannot happen, then maybe a quad to drop into the pickup bed. I bought the dirt bikes. I'd buy the quad too.
