  1. What would YOU like to see as a model

    You wouldn't need much more than a good PE set for that. Steve
  2. What would YOU like to see as a model

    No I have not. I'll check it out. Steve
  3. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Yup, I've looked @ pics of your Galaxie before & it's pretty cool. But just like if it was a Canadian or Australian kit, the box art would need to specify that. In the end, that would be the best anyway. There were a lot of really cool American cars produced in other countries that a lot of us would love to see. I'll take a dozen of this Canadian car! Steve
  4. Which Dremel?

    I have the same one. I love it! I almost never use any of the sanding wheels. I mostly use the cutting wheel for cutting metal wire & tubing. But I use the reamer bits on plastic all of the time for rough cutting. I still use files & sand paper for fine work. I use it extensively for things like removing screw posts on old annuals, drilling out headlight buckets, & just generally thinning out anything that needs it. If you're careful & select the correct bits & tool speed, it will work for all sort of things. I think one of these is almost indispensable if you're working with resin! Steve
  5. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Yeah Tulio, the box art would at least have to specify that it is a Brazilian model. To the rest of us, that's a '66. Steve
  6. 1967 Pontiac Bonneville. Update, 12/7. Interior Finished!

    I think that I have the engine figured out. I'm using the Revell '66 GTO basic engine assembly with the intake & valve covers from the MPC '69 Firebird kit. The air cleaner is an old annual kit piece from "who knows where" with a scratch made snorkel. Just need to find a half way decent carb. Steve

    It's pretty funny how they really didn't have to go too far with the modifications on this abortion to complete the joke. The car was a joke to start with in my opinion! Here is a perfect example of late '70s & early 80s styling. Steve
  8. What would YOU like to see as a model

    I believe it was referred to as the "Wagon Queen Family Truckster". In "Metallic Pea" no less. Steve
  9. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Looks a lot like it, doesn't it. Steve
  10. What would YOU like to see as a model

    This is a 1978 Chrysler LeBaron station wagon.
  11. What would YOU like to see as a model

    There's probably a very good reason why you never see any of these on the road. Nobody wants them! Personally, it will not hurt my feelings when all of these late 70s & 80s cars have all been crushed & are long gone. Sure, they're part of our country's history, but not a very good part in my opinion. My mother had one of these in '79. I took my drivers test in it. Couldn't wait to get home & get behind the wheel of my rusted out '68 Buick Skylark! Steve
  12. What would YOU like to see as a model

    I remember these from the 80s too! So who was the first one to come up with this very unfortunate "bustle back" rear end treatment, Chrysler or Cadillac? I have to say, while many of you seem to remember this era with some fondness, all I can do is look back & think, "YUCK"! This was my era. I got my drivers license in 1979 when these behemoths were everywhere. I can't think of a single one that I liked the looks of! This is what I refer to as the "box on a box" era. Somewhere along the line, all of the auto designers must have decided that if the design couldn't be cut from a cardboard box, it didn't belong on a car! Personally, and mind you, this is just me, I wouldn't buy a single kit of any automobile, or a 1:1 for that matter, that I can think of from any later than 1975. Steve
  13. What would YOU like to see as a model

    You're correct. I HATED it!! Steve
  14. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Correct. Think of it this way. The U.S. is blanketed with car shows from coast to coast every summer, all summer, every year. the majority of those shows are filled with automobiles from the 20s to the early 70s. There is still a lot of interest in these "TOO OLD" automobiles. Television channels like Velocity make a living off of shows about these cars. Barrett Jackson & Mecum auctions are big television draws as well. Most of the younger generation that I personally know. have very little interest in automobiles in general. They see it as a tool to get you from point A to point B. We saw our cars as family members, never to be forgotten. Steve
  15. Life with cats. Does anyone else have this happen to them?

    Not on your life! My cat, Lucy, is absolutely not allowed in my shop. The day that I find a cat hair in a paint job is the day that she becomes an outdoor cat!! Steve
