    Love the color, nice shade of blue. Take your time on the scripts and they should look just fine.

    A black wash on the wheels, dullcote or both would make them less gaudy. I painted mine with gunmetal gray and it looked great.

    Looks great, nice detailing on the kit.

    The Christmas stuff is in earlier than normal this year, probably figure start selling it now if the public will buy it.
    As far as the kits go, I remember them having some foreign kits at one time, but I think they discontinued them do to a lack of sales. IIRC, they were in the $35 range at the time when the AMT & Revell kits were $20 or less MSRP. I doubt they will take them on again, but I could be wrong.
    The 40% coupon is helpful if you do find something to buy- paint, kit or otherwise. I stopped in one today and picked up a Revell Snapper Raptor for about $10 and change with tax, cheaper than the interweb and if I can, I just might get it painted this weekend!
     
    back on topic- it will be interesting to see if Wally Mart brings kits back for the holidays.
  5. mikemodeler added a post in a topic What's your next model purchase?   

    Despite telling myself "No more models", I have found a couple of the MPC WWII Jeeps on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $14 the last two weeks and figured they were worth it for parts to fix some Jeeps already in my collection.
    I truly have to rid myself of some more models before I buy any more as I am trying to de-clutter my life in other areas. I am looking forward to getting some bench time here real soon, maybe getting a bunch of WIPs finished!

    I saw a news article last night that mentioned Wal Mart was getting their toy department ready for Christmas shopping earlier than usual this year, so I would imagine there was a lot of stuff that was clearance priced in anticipation of this event.
    Haven't seen a model kit at Wal Mart in years that had me wanting to buy it. Lately it has either been Hobby Lobby or online for me, don't see that changing much soon unless someone opens a hobby shop in the Charlotte area.

    Sure wish I could have made the show, looks like a lot of great models.

    Very nice, simple, clean and well detailed!

    Had to look at this for a few minutes before I realized it was the Revell snap fast kit.
    Very well done, as always!

    Looks pretty good to me, especially since it has been awhile for you! Keep at it and you will turn out better looking models as you gain confidence and experience.

    Well said Harry.
  13. mikemodeler added a post in a topic Moebius 67-72 Ford Pick-up news   

    Aaron, the AMT '78 Ford kit has a F-150 4wd set up in it so it is accurate for the Moebius kit as long as you are depicting a 1/2 ton 4wd F150 truck. The F250 and F350 trucks had leaf spring set ups while the F150 had coil springs and radius arms, like the Bronco.
  14. mikemodeler added a post in a topic 1971 Ford F-100 Flareside 4x4   

    That looks great! I wonder how many of us will build a 4x4 version ahead of the actual kit being released by Moebius ?
     
    I need to get started on my '69 F 100 shortbed 4x4.

    That is an excellent rendition of that kit. Beautiful paint, great details and perfect finish to the model.
