    Ollie's always seems to have Lindberg kits in their stores. They only get Round2 (AMT/MPC) and Revell stuff once or twice a year. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to which stores get what. Some have a decent selection one time and nothing the next. As for where they get them, it's hard to tell. The stuff they got this time isn't exactly undesirable junk. Who knows, stacks of Revell Model A Coupes may show up there at some point!

    It's working for me now.

    I was there the day before and they only had the Lindberg stuff. I work in Edgewood, so it's not too far if I go afterwards.

    I remember the "checkerboard" AMT kits! The quality control on those was pretty bad. Someone once told me they selected the subjects for those based on how close the tooling was to the molding machine! That's hilarious if true. Good thing Round2 came in and saved them!

    Thanks for the heads-up! I went there today and was able to pick up a lot of stuff. They had the best selection out of all the stores I've been to so far.

    If you go to the Frederick or Hagerstown stores and they have any Sox GTX's or 91 Mustangs, let me know. I was thinking about going to those stores on Sunday.

    Hit a couple of Ollies. Slim pickings at the two I checked. So far all I've found are a couple of Bull Horn 1/16 T-buckets. Actually a nice kit if you like large scale. I also got a L-700 Tanker, 1/32 Fire truck, A couple of Jukebox Ford's and a Surfite. I'd like to check out a few more stores this weekend. I'd really like some fox-body Mustangs and Sox & Martin GTX's.

    Whoever's listing those kits is on a major fishing expedition. They've been on ebay forever. I've seen them at shows for much less. Still pricey, but not that bad.

    That poor Land Rover was much maligned when new, but it's actually a pretty nice kit. A huge sales failure at the time, but I think things are different now. I don't know why Revell of Germany never issued it. I would think it would be a big hit in the UK/Europe

    Glad to see we're getting a 1966 / 66 Ford Pickup, also that the 4x4 version of the 70 is still in the pipeline. I'm a little dismayed that the AWB Plymouth is still in limbo, especially considering the tooling was completed a year ago. Same goes for the Butch Leal A990 and the AFX Comet. I know they were disappointed with the sales of the Melrose Missile, but that was a car that ran only one race in that configuration. The others should sell much better.
  13. Dave Toups added a post in a topic Revell 1/8th L.A. Chopper   

    I wonder if Round 2 could re-issue the stock Harley Sportster that the thunder chopper was based on. I would imagine the tooling for it still exists since both kits were available at the same time back then. The Bronson version would be nice too, but I doubt they'd pay licensing for a TV show that isn't in reruns and very few remember.

    Fred Cady 68 Torino & 79 Mustang pace car decals
    Does anyone have a set of Fred Cady 68 Torino or 79 Mustang pace car decals they would be willing to part with?
