  1. Like the sign in front of the antique shop..."we buy junk and sell antiques"...
  2. Does anyone know of somebody paying a ridiculous price for a Modelhaus (or any other out of production) aftermarket kit? I'm sure it has happened, but someone paying a big price is more likely someone who owns the 1:1 version, is willing to step up to get one in scale, and isn't particularly active as a builder or collector...just wants his/her own car in scale.
  3. How close do the cuts need to be? Are you cutting the diecast into multiple parts that you need, or are you cutting it to get one needed section? If it is the latter, a round diamond grit blade in a Dremel tool should do it. I'd leave a little excess and then grind away at it until you get what you need. I'd go with the slowest speed possible that gets the job done. As always, safety equipment (eye protection in particular) is an absolute must.
  4. There's the possibility that the entire T chassis could be included, then again Atlantis could tool a couple of new parts in order to avoid that (and save the companion T for a separate release). It'll be interesting to see how they handle this, and 1/24-25 scale car kits in general.
  5. Jo-Han did manufacture a '67 Toronado kit, but it was sold by AMT in AMT packaging. AMT also sold the '68 kit. MPC had the promo model contract for '67 so the Jo-Han/AMT kit is off in a couple of details compared to the MPC.
  6. '63 windshield trim covers the pillars and visually carries the windshield opening into the side window openings. '64-'67 trim just goes around the windshield. As for the 1/32 Indy car, my bet is that it, and the 1/25 kit, would be issued around the same time if licensing can be had for that particular car.
  7. One of my neighbors had a dog that, for some reason, liked to come into my yard for that (I'd guess other neighborhood yards as well). I'd let it dry out, and pitch it over the fence with a sand wedge. It only took a couple of "returns" before the message was received...problem solved.
  8. The Modelhaus kit pictured is a Chrysler. Obviously based on the Plymouth (as was the 1:1 Chrysler wagon) but different.
  9. Too, there's a glue mark from an inner fender on that body...I'd bet it's Jo-Han/AMT. The MPC kit had the inner fenders molded as one piece with the firewall and radiator bulkhead, so it wouldn't be attached like that.
  10. The bumpers might provide a clue...pretty certain the MPC rear bumper has a dated license plate while the Jo-Han bumper has a Toronado script. Too, if the holes in the interior tabs line up with the posts on the inside of the body, again it's probably Jo-Han/AMT. I do have both '67 kits but never bothered to compare things like that since both are complete.
  11. The double kits did include complete parts pack trees, but the suspension parts tree was molded in silver plastic and not plated. Seeing as how the dragster is (presumably) being issued by itself and not as a double kit, hopefully those parts will be plated this time around.
  12. I think you have an original body, with the interior/chassis/engine (black parts) from a Jo-Han USA Oldies reissue 1970 kit.
