  1. And, in Regards to the Catalina, I've heard and experienced issues with the rear axle assembly, complete with wheels, being too wide to fit inside the fenders of the Cat body. Not sure if this will help.
  2. Re: Peter Vetri & the "Atlantis Custom Car Parts Series" That's a big hint, Boyz'n'Girlz that we may see a lot more plastic run through those old Parts Pack molds. It would be Awesome if this happens. I can be patient a lot longer, knowing that Atlantis knows what kinds of Jewels they have in that lot of tooling they bought. The Revell Caddy does nothing, but some of the the other stuff! Blows my Mind!
  3. Thanks, Guys. My eye is healing. 6 different kinds of eye drops. Every 6 hours!
  4. I got through my surgery okay. Had a detached Retina (Macula) in my right eye. VA in West Los Angeles did the surgery on Wednesday afternoon. I'm home finally after far too many adventures. The eye is healing. Next comes Cataract Surgery in 3-6 months. I'm blessed the VA is there for me.
  5. Well, Just changing the tires will be a 100% improvement. Add in some new decals and maybe a couple small freebies and it should sell well. With the Revell, (ex Monogram) Woody off the market, it will have the shelve at Hobby Lobby to itself, so the casual buy wanting a Woody will only have one choice. And, in it's favor, it's not a bad choice, just not one that WE would always choose first. All Chromed Flattie is nice, and it does offer stock wheels.
  6. AMT's 1970 Ford will hit the market again, this time in Taxi form. So right now there are at least 4 AMT Sedan/Wagon kits out there. The '78 Dodge Monaco, the '70 Ford, the '67 Supernatural, and the '63 Chevy Wagon. A decent selection of virgin plastic.
  7. Other than the Body and the decals, will there be any difference in these kits?
  8. Wow, very Spendy! But, if you gotta be first? Here's your chance.
  9. I need one of those Cat Rock Paintings. They are just awesome!
  10. Craig, do they Howl? I've always heard the Bassets, Howl and Chew. My Uncle had one 40 years ago, and it was the loudest dog in the whole neighborhood. It is literally ate Tennis Shoes. That said it was a sweet dog. Funny to watch it walk.
  11. Dave, isn't the ZZR tooling now forever Modified as the Firebug? https://public.fotki.com/drasticplasticsmcc/mkiba-build-under-c/amt-instructions/show-rods/amt-firebug/ https://public.fotki.com/drasticplasticsmcc/mkiba-build-under-c/amt-instructions/show-rods/amt-the-zzr-by-geor/ Cheers!
  12. Besides. Many older modelers (the target market for many Atlantis Kits), may be perfectly satisfied with the Red Colour. And, those who aren't? Well, most of them will know how to fix the bleedthrough problems, and go along their merry way.
  13. Great Chris! You think you'll be able to post photos?
  14. I wonder if Chris (HPI-Guy)will be getting one?
  15. Jack Bally, the Builder, passed away in 2020. I saw notes online, that his labor of love was for sale. I sure hope it went to a good home!
