  1. Thank you for the trip down memory lane, Was there any appreciation to John Carlisle for him providing space for the NNL and years ago the GLMFAA club to display during the Toy Fair? Howard keep in touch with the 'buckeyes' greg
  2. More photos: https://public.fotki.com/GLMFAA1/nnl--40-last-toledo-show/20191012-193012.html#media greg
  3. Great job, only item is door emblem with side marker, pretty close to real thing. greg
  4. Make sure to check the box as someone in my area is switching the cases to get a lower price. greg
  5. I've been building since I was a kid with two older brothers into models, Always interested in the challenge and enjoyed the challenges. Years ago Chrysler auto workers had a slogan of "I buy what I build". I turned it around to "I build what I buy" just to upset the hoarders and speculators. I have always thought that the sculpture was worth more than the 5lb bag of clay. greg
  6. 4000 to 7000 rpm seems a little fast for any metal work greg
  7. It's the Daytona kit, orange cover shot
  8. Niles Ohio Ollie's has: Internationals, Kenworth co, Plated tanker, 72 GTO, 69 Charger, Crown Vic pd car, 48 merc pd car. Also a sharper image dump of rc toys greg
  9. They were for luggage http://gt40.rkmotorscharlotte.com/ good reference pictures and story greg
  10. Last visit to my local HL I asked the clerks, They do know what's on the shelves or where clearance items are located. This store just marked the clearance items, left them on the shelf with the red tags and green line through the regular price. greg
  11. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=tamiya+ts-36&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI_ufJ-P7i5AIVitlkCh1iCQD1EAMYASAAEgLc5fD_BwE&hvadid=174315517135&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9015449&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1o1&hvqmt=b&hvrand=12030908616647129279&hvtargid=kwd-26706733229&tag=googhydr-20&ref=pd_sl_833pdb9f0y_b The last time I was in a well stocked hobby shop, about an hour away, they had a not regarding Tamiya paints being held up due to labeling in California. greg
  12. I would also suggest AITM as there is a great variety of cabs, I would be on the look out for the ERTL IH Logger($$$) as the kit is more substantial than the AMT. Not going to be near 1/20 but aren't garden railway (G scale) 1/22.5? greg
  13. Original AMT 1962 Thunderbird. Built by my brother in 1962, had red/white interior, gold underbody, white styrene turned yellow and chrome dissolved through the ages. Rehab project was changed interior to all black (mix of Tamiya flat black and NATO black), repainted frame with Tamiya gold, painted (Airbrushed)body with Tamiya gloss white. Re chromed using Molotaw pens. Antennas are cut straight pins. .
  14. Two of my modeling friends who left too soon, Bill and his father Andy were also into fire truck builds. I had the pleasure of first meeting them at a local hobby shop where I had some fire apparatus on display. Friendship was established that day. They gained a great respect from me due to the extraordinary skills in model building. Many a travels with them to shows and displays, shared meals and warm welcomes to each others home and was great to meet the aunts who replaced Andy's wife and Bill's mother. Pinecrest was a very special and short lived resin source. We exchanged modeling ideas and even one conversation with Bill helped him when he was obtaining his MBA from Notre Dame. Always in memories and always missed. Example of building prowess, Moon township rescue fully equipped. Dave Palmeter and Bill at GLMFAA/NNL meets at the Toledo Toy Fair, unknown date greg
