    Why, but you all seem to have forgotten about Heller's Mercedes 170V.
    It was last released some ten - fifteen years ago, so it might be a challenge to find one nowadays. Sweet kit though.

    I am trying to hold back on making investments in even more plastic, but a man's got to do what a man's got to do.
    I am on the fence about the Honcho. I have the "Pink Poison" issue in the stack, but are not likely to get around to building it. - But that snowmobile looks very tempting. And I have been wanting the High Rollers to come back, so one of the GMCs are on the shopping list. It is not the Chevelle, but I'm still very much happy to see it coming back
    Now, does anybody want to place bets wether that camouflage job is supplied as decals or not?

    AMT '39 Wagon Rod
    It looks as if this one is coming out again.  I for me am happy, although others might be more indifferent to the news.
    I find it funny though, that Round2 lists one of the selling points as; "Great engine and drivetrain parts for kit bashing ".
    As if they think the kit is not attractive enough in it's own right.

    What's next, what's next? I hope for a Vicky. But then again I side with the ones who suggest a variety of the rat roaster will be next. I for me, don't really mind the injected windsor 302. If anything I could see it replaced with the newer modular OHC V8, but that's just me. - Not likely to happen.

    Even though I have finished a five and a three window coupe, I have a hard time choosing a favorite.

    They all have something going for them. If anything, I can say that I'm probably least attracted to the tudor..

    Holy macaroni!
    What IS that thing? A tractor or bulldozer or something? - And you are working in paper? All respect to you! I couldn't do that even if I wanted to. Keep us posted though.

    I am pretty certain most any Hot Wheels or Matchbox will work on this track, as long as they are of a reasonable size and configuration. 
    Please let us know how it goes.

    Yes, this one looks more familiar to me. I had the pre upgraded-issue w/photoetched winglets (iIrc) and cart-mount brackets.  The thick winglets and lack of pitot tube on your model threw me off. You are a better man than me. You finished not just one, but two. Whereas I stalled at applying the metal finish.

    Cool model!
    Which kit is this one? I started and almost finished a 1/72 MPM kit about 15 years ago, but this one seems to a different kit. I usually don't build war planes, but this one is so totally bonkers I just had to give it a go.

    The Foose cab in the picture is missing the separate roof panel part. What you see is basically the top side of the headliner, so to speak. The whole thing looks wider though, compared to the old Revell. At least in that picture

    Aand we have a winner!
    The winner is first and foremost myself, because I wanted a kit of this truck and I voted for it to be made. - And now I have one! It looks good too!

    The engine hole is not as bad those from back in the stone age of things, and looks as if it can easily be filled if need be.

    One of the great features of this kit is something I have been wanting for a long time. Different size wheels of the same design and with rubber to match! The different size rollers we have been served in other kits have (almost) always had same diameter wheels. Different width yes, but same diameter, and then those would be fitted with different height tires. This always bugged me  because due to the different aspect ratio of the tires, the rims in the larger tyre would visually appear to be smaller than the one in the smaller tyre. Not anymore though. This kit has them right!
    I am excited about this. Please do inform me if I am actually late to the party, and the other Foose kits have been equipped so for a long time now

    Interesting engineering choices alright! Like the metal axle through the engine. I'm not going to make too much noise about it,, but I have to say I thought they stopped doing that years ago. It seems to look fairly clean and concealed in this truck, but then again - it seems wrong somehow.
    I'm sure somebody is going to have a cow about it. Bring out the popcorn!

    Very interesting indeed. It looks as if these kits are all curbside though. Possibly with the exception of the Lancia. Is there any information on detail level of these ones.

    That was such a great event! Kudos and deep respect to the organizers, man do they know what they're doing! As for me, I cannot even determine which part I enjoyed the most. I got to meet Juha Airio and see his work (even brought some of it home). I had one of my models chosen for photography by Model Cars mag, that was a first for me and it kind of left a mark. Then of course there was a lot of great and friendly attendees and vendors, and not to forget manufacturer representatives big and small alike. I really like that the kit producers take time to come and talk with the lunatic fringe.   I hope I'll be able to go back next year!
  15. lysleder added a post in a topic Moebius - Now that the Comet is out, What's Next   

    I talked to Dave at NNL East today, and he told me of an hitherto unannounced expansion. He said that after the 4x4 Ford (1970), the next one in line is a 1964-66 one. He mentioned the year, but I have forgotten. The message in this is that although the chassis and running gear is identical to the pickups we know, the body will be the previous style. That is cool, and I didn't see it coming. That is - didn't know the chassis carried over, allowing for expansion of the Moebius range.
