    Jeremy, let me know if you need contact info for the Ft. Wayne club. If you'd like I can add you to the HMCA email newsletter list so you'll receive show flyers.

    In the past we've had members who drove from Ft Wayne to Indy to attend meetings and even how we have one member who lives in Grant Co.

    I like them all, so I voted "other".
    I'm surprised Art didn't list the Vicky. I think the Phaeton, Vicky, and the closed cab and roadseer pickups, in that order, would be the best choice for the next body style in this series. JIM

    HMCA (Hoosier Model Car Association) is centered in Indy, but has members from other parts of the state. If you're interested in receiving our monthly newsletter , which has includes a calendar of area events and flyers for many of them, send me an email and I'll add you to the list. Our contest and swap meet this year will be May 5th.

    PS for you guys in the Muncie area, I understand there is a club starting up there which meets at a hobby shop - Toys Forever - in downtown Muncie.

    At one time you could purchase one from Mike's Scale Speed Shop.

    Harry, I agree that a point system is great, but it takes a lot more time or a lot more judging to do the judging with a point system. HMCA did that for several years and even with a great swap meet to occupy the time, modelers get impatient waiting for the judges to finish.

    LHS had a Revell flyer that listed the '32 5W for July. I think some folks may have seen a test shot at the Milwaukee NNL. I'm gonna pre-order a couple.

    I believe it is a Caddy. I wish it was an Olds, I have a project that could use a vintage J2 Olds engine.FWIW, I've started putting the engine in the Merc kit together and it looks good so far.
  15. casassa added a post in a topic NEW 49 MERC WHATS UP?   

    A fellow club member found them in South Bend, IN and grabbed one for me. I couldn't wait to get started. I've already modified the skirts and taillights and am working on figuring out the best way to use the RM&M '53 Buick side trim. So far everything I've assembled or test fitted went together well. There are lots of options in the box, so you could easily build a half dozen variations just with what's in the box. I can see myself building several of them.
