  2. model roundup

    great service and a great email newsletter. JIM
  3. My Old Articles

    Thanks Tom. Looking forward to reading more of them as time permits. JIM
  4. RIP Chris Etzel

    Art, thanks a lot for the stories about Chris. He will be missed. JIM
  5. Indianapolis club info

    You can contact me for information on the Hoosier Model Car Association (HMCA) . My email is jcasassa@att.net. We have a monthly electronic newsletter which has meeting dates and locations plus flyers for coming show. I'd be glad to email you a copy. JIM
  6. Bolt sizes

    I think most of the suspension bolts on those cars would be in the 3/8" to 1/2" inch range, in scale that would be about .015" to .020". Hex size for bolt heads or nuts would scale out to .023" to .026". If you're looking for real bolts I think sixe 0000 is the closest you'll find. If you're wanting only to simulate bolt heads and nuts, hex and round stock are available from Plastruct. I think someone offers photoetched bolt heads, but can't recall who. HTH JIM.

  8. Looking for louvers

    Harry, you might want to check out www.archertransfers.com for louvers. They are resin printed on a decal sheet and come in a variety of sizes. They are not open, but with some black paint or marker they are close. JIM
  9. Revell 1957 Ranchero?

    I think a Ranchero from Revell is a certainty since I purchased a JF resin kit. It seems that every time I've bought a resin body to use with a current kit the model company adds that body style to their lineup. JIM

  11. New guy from IN

    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. JIM
  12. New guy from IN

    Jeremy, if you're in central IN, you might be interested in checking out the HMCA. We meet 2nd and 4th Monday of every month. JIM

  14. Revell / Monogram '32 ford kits

    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
