  1. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    Hey, right behind baseball, rumor-mongering is America's national pastime.
  2. You're not building or painting a kit made of plastic spoons. Test it on the kit sprue. It will give you a more accurate idea as to compatibility. Vallejo paints don't have much "bite" if applied on unprimed surfaces. It's always recommended that parts be primed prior to use. I'm speaking from years of experience using Vallejo acrylics on armor models. I've used Testors Dullcote on Vallejo paints without any cracking, crinkling or blistering. Even better if you have Vallejo 70.520 Matte Varnish or 70.522 Satin Varnish, use them.
  3. Sorry, Not in my book

    That Chebby is roadworthy as long as it's driven on a runway. It wouldn't last 30 minutes on the streets here in NYC. Our infamous potholes will have it for lunch.
  4. MB-Master Box?

    Ebay, www.culttvmanshop.com, Squadron, Sprue Bros., and so on. Google the items and watch what comes up.

    I'm a film noir fan myself.
  6. Old AMT Kit Instruction Sheets

    If the instructions were printed to emulate real blueprints, they would have looked like negatives, that is, white images and lettering on a blue or black background. My technical drawing teacher at Brooklyn Technical H.S., C. Kyrie Kallas, taught us how to make blueprints from technical drawings we drew. They don't make' em like him anymore.
  7. Has anyone heard of The Sales Shack?

    I ordered a couple of kits Sunday night. They went out earlier this afternoon and I should get them on Wednesday. I can't get mail sent from across the street delivered that quickly.
  8. Palmer model kit history?

    Okay, Bill. YOU are the exception.
  9. How 'bout coring a apple? Is there an app for that?
  10. Palmer model kit history?

    Not too shabby for a dime store kit. Everyone is looking and disparaging Palmer models through the jaded eyes of adults who seemed to have conveniently forgotten, or wish to forget, their youth. I seriously doubt there there is anyone here who, as a six to ten year old, actually knew, or cared, about correct body lines, accurate proportions, etc. A lot of kids back then would get their introduction to model building by buying these models at the candy store while checking out the comic book racks. I know I, and most of my friends, did.

  12. Meng models 1/35 tires?

    The actual vehicle uses the same Michelin X 16.00R20 XZL tires as the M1070 HET tractor. I'm giving you the measurements from the HobbyBoss M1070 HET tires. That translates to 37mm tall, 11.4mm wide and 18mm wheel opening. Plan on using them for a1/24-1/25 off-road vehicle project?
  13. Gulf Ford GT Color?

    That's the only way you'll get it.
  14. Sorry, Not in my book

    Would the windup key be relocated for aesthetic purposes?
  15. Sorry, Not in my book

    I'm an Army vet and a product of Catholic schools; so, my knowledge of maledicta is extensive. I'm at a loss to think of one that fits.
