    I agree!
    Not too concerned about box art tires and which direction they are mounted. If I was to base my purchase decisions on box art, I would be more concerned about how the top looks in proportion to the body.
    The pictures of the kit trees sold me on this one. Starting to save my lunch money now for this one!

    So I spotted a post in the Trading Post section and saw some kits I would like to have. I sent a PM to the member and inquired as to what it would take to complete a trade for a specific kit as I had one of his "wants" and didn't know if that was enough to satisfy him and asked what else he was needing. All I got was "more than that" with no specifics and find out a day later the kit I wanted was gone.
    I understand that in the world of trading, we want to get fair value but at least give an interested party an idea of what you are looking for and an opportunity to respond. 
    In the grand scheme of things, my life will go on but I try to be a little more upfront and clear in my dealings and hope that others would be too.

    Harry,
    I cannot begin to imagine how you are feeling after hearing this news but am confident that with the right attitude and treatment, you will beat this handily. Be sure to include your family with the details and seek out the best possible care as that will make a difference in your outcome.
    Your second family here is obviously concerned for you and let us know what we can do to help you. Prayers and wishes for a successful fight are coming your way.

    I work in the automotive aftermarket parts business, and have for over 30 years. Make sales calls on repair facilities and have fun doing it! Finally have a job where I am home every night and now that my kids are off to college, I am looking forward to getting to the bench for some much needed building time!

    Thanks for the update, I am aware how the moves go and how things can get delayed. No worries, I am still getting my builds ready for those tires and am a couple weeks (or months, who knows!) away from being close to needing them.
    I will keep an eye open on the website and look for them.

    Anybody hear anything from Danny lately? Two months ago he was shutting down pending a house move and was hoping to be back and casting by now. I have been waiting for him to get those lug tires he was developing ready for order so I could load up!
  8. mikemodeler added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Went to the CKM show today and saw some old friends and a TON of plastic. There was a new vendor there who had 7 tables of kits, a lot of new releases and a mix of older kits too. Picked up the new Pacer Wagon kit (mostly for the engine) and a couple of other pieces. I saw some resin bodies I wanted but had to hold off for now.

    X3 ! Always appreciate you taking the time to post these photos and the nice detail on your shots.

    I will be there, hope there aren't too many bargains (yeah right!), trying to reduce the stash.

    That would be nice with a modern wrecker bed on it!

    Unless they tool up a stock nose there isn't much need for another Monte. AMT/MPC had the earlier (78-82) Montes offering, wonder if they are considering a re-issue at this point?
    Would be nice to see a Malibu coupe and wagon come forth, Revell did have an El Camino based off of the 78-80 models that could be used as the base for the wagon.

    Revell offered up a stock version of the Monte Carlo Aerocoupe, don't recall it being reissued. 
  14. mikemodeler added a post in a topic Lindburg 66 Chevelle Pro Street   

    Nice start, always loved the 66 Chevelle body. Looks like that chassis fit without any problems, might have to do a simple build along the same lines you have.

    I would think any new kit designed today has to be offered in several types of livery in order to justify tooling. The recent Olds Cutlass convertible is a great example, which makes me wonder what they have planned for the upcoming Bronco kit....?????
     
    The Malibu would be nice to have and if I had to guess, it would be along the lines of the Mustang LX where it would be a stock and a drag version.
