  1. Well since my post is now hidden from me I'll take your word on it and just say I guess I should have worded it differently.
  2. Well, ya can't blame that on me because I had left for a year, when I came back he was gone.
  3. ,, and also soliciting content. Quite possibly, i thought I said that Harry wasn't around anymore to help him with it, I wouldn't come right out and say Harry wrote it FOR him because I don't think that. I think it was a collaboration between the two with Harry being more silent about his contribution. Perhaps you misread? I don't remember exactly how I worded it now, it's been deleted.
  4. I just googles it and checked it out. Doesn't look the same as the old stuff so ??? They do have a lot of sharp colors.
  5. That wasn't HOK paint though, it was "by the makers of HOK". namely, Valspar . If it is the same paint, I'd recommend leaving it right where it is, They had so many problems and complaints with it that they had to pull it off the market.
  6. Worked on my grille today. 19 strips of sheet plastic in 2 thicknesses stacked on top of each other and sanded to shape. Needs to be cleaned up a bit more and painted.
  7. Beautiful. Thought it was a pic from a brochure when I first opened the post.

    I suspect that's an AMT "Jr. trophy series" kit from the mid '60s, not a promo. That's probably why it doesn't look like a banana. Nice score though. A front bumper/grille for that shouldn't be too hard to find. The Revell parts do look %100 better but night not fit too well.
  9. Guess that means I got my first warning ! For what? saying Harry helped him with his book? That's not hearsay or gossip, it's based on Harry asking me to contribute to the book on two separate occasions. As you can guess,, I said no both times.
  10. Yup, there's definitely worse cars you could take inspiration from. 😉
  11. Yea, that's so close to the one I'm building right now. I'll be watching to see what you do with it also.
  12. Holy cow! Whatever happened to "neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of night", eh? They're getting almost as bad as Canada Post. 😕
  13. I agree, shipping is ridiculous. That's why I usually don't trade unless it's something I can't get locally or REALLY want. But, if you're getting your prices off the USPS website, I highly doubt their accuracy. LMKCo originally charged me $26.50 shipping to send my chrome back, quoted off the post office website. After they actually mailed it, Dale refunded me almost $12 back. The website was off by that much. Nevertheless, it still cost me a little more [almost $20 CDN, a little over $15 USD] to ship it to him than for him to ship it back. And if the person you're shipping to is paying the cost, then well?? BUT ANYWAY ,, like I said, I was curious and you answered my question. Thank you Casey.
  14. Very nice ! Very clean build on what looks like it could be a difficult kit.
  15. Why is that Roger? All you gotta do is put it an a box and mail it, same as mailing it to anywhere in "the lower 48", Yes, there is a form to fill out. Asks what's in the box, to which you put "toy model car" and the value,, which is whatever you put on it. Pretty sure it doesn't cost much more and I'm also pretty sure whoever your sending the model to would be happy to pay postage, if asked. Or am I missing something here? BTW, should add,, not trying to be confrontational, just curious as I've heard this several times.
