  1. 1/24 Yugo or Fiat 127 kit by chance?

    Hi No chance for a kit. But you can find 1:24 Die-casts of these things. A lot of funny trash to repaint and detail. From brands such as Burago or Polistil. BTW, the Fiat 127 DOES exist, and is not that bad. Just add decent wheels, tricky details, and it will be respectable. Tadaaaa !
  2. Formula 400

    Yes ! Yes ! Yes !!!
  3. Like going back to the 1992 Street-Machine Nats.
  4. Seventies Land Yachts?

    This is an old subject. I've been hoping for them for 10 years (71 Rivi, any FWD Eldo, Lincoln Mk V, Pontiac Grandville, Buick Centurion, 1976 Cadillac Limousine, etc). We've had a few approaching subjects with the Low-rider wave. But now ? Did Revell sell enough 77 Monte-Carlos to pay the mold engineering ? What about the 1984 Cadillac ? Isn't the Low-rider trend oldfashion with modelers ? So, why these kits haven't been slightly modified to sell more ( stock 1980 Caddy, 1984 Fleetwood Brougham, 1974 Monte-Carlo, 1977 Olds 4-4-2). Where's the money ? The money ? MONEY ??? I just guess we had a golden era for Land yachts, and today is all about 80s and 90s. Or the good old Hot-Rod/60s subjects. Nevermind, you know what 1970s car I'd buy by dozens today if they had it kitted ? Mercedes R107s.
  5. '76 Firebird Trans Am -

    Here's the 1974 Super-Duty T/A I build years ago. I mixed a 1970 Revell and a 1974 Arii for the front fascia. To create a 1976, you should use most of the 1978 Revell Warbird, including the front bumper. Missing link Resin also offers Honeycomb wheels.
  6. Amt Nissan hardbody?

    I'll buy one just for the scale. 1/20 is just the perfect scale. Slightly bigger than 1:24, perfect for better details, but not Big Scale yet. No if they could release the Grand Cherokee as well...
  7. Round 2 September 2017 Product Spotlight

    I need a crate of these 1:16 T/As
  8. 1/16 MPC '79 Pontiac Firebird

    I wish someone offered decals for these T/As. Keith Marks offers great 1:24 ones (that's how I built my 1974 SD-455). But 79-81s still exist in various scales, from 1:25 to 1:8. Converting this reissue in a 305ci 1980, or just repainting a 1:8 TTA with fresh decals would be just amazing.
  9. Round 2 August 2017 Product Spotlight

    Nothing exciting to me. Except the idea of building 1:25 1974-78 GM cars : 76 Formula, 77 4-4-2, 73 Grand Am...
  10. 1977 Dodge Monaco/Crestwood wagon.

    Hi. The market will depend on quality. The poor interior/chassis/engine from the kit are okay since no one will admire these Lean Burn motors. But the body will have to be nice and feature, to my taste, side woodtrim and correct hubcaps.
  11. Hi You will find the second ones in the Amt Chevrolet Silverado and C-1500 Sportside pick-ups of the 80/90s. So you can place them under Pontiac Fieros. The first ones exist in various Revell and Mpc kits (1939 Chevy, 1967 Corvette).
  12. 1/16 MPC '79 Pontiac Firebird

    I have a hurt original, so this is great news and I will buy a few. Hope they will just complete the toyish tinted glass with clear one.

  14. 92 firebird

    Hi Your Formula can be easily be replicated with any of these 1/24 1987-1992 Formula-T/A kit. Your biggest challenge will be the front bumper. Try to find a trash-built 1982-83, their bumper won't have a spoiler. Using a nice unbuilt example would be criminal. Good luck !
