  1. I recently acquired an R75/6 as well, but mine is Havana Gold. My neighbor has a Monza Blue 90/6
  2. this was one of the first kits I got when I was a kid (4-5 years old). I don't think my dad and I ever completed it. at some point I'll buy one and build it just to say I did. I agree about the headlights. Seems more like KW lights in the fender.
  3. I managed not to buy any kits yesterday at Hobby Lobby, despite the 40% off sale. It would have been easy to justify but there wasn't anything I didn't already have or anything I thought I "needed."
  4. Trying to wrap up this build. This kit has fought me every step of the way, most recently my discovery that I've lost one of the tail lamps. Does anyone have one available?
  5. Revell's '69 Corvette kit. Aside from the odd treatment of the rear window, it's my favorite kit. Close runner up is the AMT '53 Ford pickup mentioned by Tom Geiger above.
  6. I like to see this one. I spent a summer in San Diego with my aunt and uncle when I was 17. She had a red Beretta GT and I got to drive it a few times. It was a fun little car.

  8. beautiful. nice choice to use the PO2 wheel covers, too. You don't see them often but they really give the car a different look.
  9. great job! this is such a great kit, and the '69 is my favorite of the early sharks, especially in orange.
  10. awesome. I have a 1:1 Westinghouse cooler like the one from the ranchero kit, but it's the wider version. I will need to get two kits to build one.
  11. I enjoy catching these things. My family thinks i'm nuts for noticing. A few that come to mind: The Last Boy Scout - 1988 or newer mustang convertible gets blown up. When it explodes, it's clearly an earlier 4-eyed model. Happy Days - Fonzie finds a haunted '55 chevy and works on it in his shop. It's a '51 or '53 (been a while since I saw it) with a '55 hood ornament CHiPs - Ponch's gold firebird changes years and equipment throughout the course of the show.
  12. I don't think I've ever purchased a built up kit before, but the one I received today was very well packaged. The seller wrapped it in cellophane, then put it in a bubble wrap bag, and put that in a box with foam peanuts and more bubble wrap. It arrived intact. I was really impressed.
  13. this was delivered today - a vintage built up of the Jo-Han Maverick in Dyno Don livery. The paint is thin and the chrome is shot, but I had to have it. I'm going to try my hand at the "Snake-Fu" and put it on the shelf with the build-up of the kit I haven't started yet.
  14. not too surprised to get the email. I only recently started subscribing to the digital format, and imo, the content seemed a bit lighter than what i remembered. Oh well. I probably get more tips and new ideas here than i did in the mags anyway.
