    The background scene is of a Western town motif and Bud does have his goggles as I got the diorama as someone just wanted the car. A general store, telephone pole, and horse tie log. I have the hobby set with the wood box, The box does not go together well. If you want I will take pictures of what I've done with it.

    That's one fire kit I missed, Wasn't interested in it as AMT had the cinder bug out there, I thought that the kits were not 1/24th scale and missed on the fire fighters.
    I already had the Hubley metal T and made the AMT 25 T into a chief's car

    Yesterday I was working and had no camera but a late 40 early 50 Ford pick up front wedded to a Ford van rear end in army green, Anyone in the Y-town area know of it's origins

    I should have replied to this earlier, but from the fringe medical side of it I heard a doctor explain the procedure as putting you in a garbage can and then beating it with a big hammer. When I transport people to an MRI appointment I tell them of the side effects as being a change in personality (magnetic) and the tendency to sleep pointing North.

    Just a quick note, I think the AMT cab is thicker than the MPC cab, I believe the glass is not interchangeable, I'll check my stash and get back to you. greg

    Nice find, I recall in my boyhood my friend having the T Bird kit with the engine and the front hinged hood. amazed at the model, of course done in white plastic, who had spray paint in the 60's, The worst thing was those darn little spring clips used to make the hood work, I was a Vette fan (route 66 avid watcher, what great actors, actresses and writers, it was all the car) and dreaded those clips, always had a nice cut on my fingers from them. glad you have the parts, I was going to offer up an air cleaner. greg

    Back in the days when the kits were 4 to 5 dollars they were good buy to get accurate parts Which are now outdated and the kits are now considered rare and ruined by a production run of GREEN plastic windows. There were other kits that had emergency parts like the Force 440, Cop Out, Roscoe's police car and the Nova, Now that the latest being the Lindberg Dodge that had several light bars, The Crown Vics had two different bars, I agree the time is right to purchase castings as the productions have ceased. There are some nuts out here that do build emergency vehicles.

    How about this one?

    I'd say it is a clone 1. Twinsonic light bar instead of Dietz gumball on roof. 2. Star of life on rear windows, Vid pics and article have no stars on rear windows (maybe omitted to do interior shots) 3. Blue cross on side along with the star of life. 4. Has anyone checked out the tags on the windshield? greg
