    I love stripping these old Junkers! It's like a treasure hunt. You never know what you'll find!

    There was this sad 67 Falcon. The rear wheel openings weren't hogged out as happened to so many of these so I decided to save it

    Look at all the pretty colors!! There must've been 5 layers of paint on there

    It actually came out white!

    I don't know if this qualifies as a glue bomb, but it's a bomb nonetheless
    I actually started to fix this

    Ollie's has some new kits again! The one near work didn't have a whole lot, but I was able to pick up some MPC Bounty Hunter F/C's and a couple of Malco Gasser Mustangs.

    Has anyone ordered one of these sets lately? I checked the website and they're in stock, but there's no button that I can see to add them to the cart for ordering! It's the same way for all of his parts.

    I'd give them a chance to respond. They've been swamped with orders, so mistakes can happen. I'm sure they'll make good on it and send you the correct bumper.

    Most of the T-Bird kits I've see have smashed windshield frames. I recently bought a nice sealed 55 kit and when i opened it I found it was broken. The later issue 57 I bought to use as a replacement was broken also!

    I just got one of these too. I was very surprised at the level of detail!! Aoshima is making some very nice kits these days

    My last order was over $1,000, barely. It was tough mailing it in since I've never spent that much on model stuff at one time! That's what I get for procrastinating. I didn't buy any of it to resell, BTW. Like a lot of folks, it was mostly parts I need to complete built-ups I had that were missing parts. I don't know how many times I've bought built models that were missing a bumper or tail lights and saying "I can get them from Modelhaus". We won't be able to say that any more and it's a shame. The service they've provided is something we're unlikely to see again. Nothing lasts forever, though, and Don and Carol are great people who deserve a long and happy retirement.

    I doubt he'll ever get that price for that kit. Oddly, the same seller had several other Modelhaus kits listed a few days ago for LESS that what Don sold them for. They're gone already, of course.

    Mailed in my last order yesterday. A whole bunch of parts and a couple of kits. I had to "wing it" it a bit as to the parts I needed, but I think I caught at least 90%. Who knows when I'll get the stuff. It doesn't really matter how long it takes anyway.
    They will be sorely missed. They're one of the few companies in this hobby that you'd just assume would always be there. I guess in the future I won't procrastinate so much when I see something I want.
    I did just check and the website was still up. Not sure if they'd honor the orders since it's after the 5th.

    I placed an order for two kits on March 12, before I saw the post about the health situation. I received my items, sometime in early May, I believe. I don't feel like that was too long, especially given the circumstances. My guess is that you'll get what you ordered. In the post Devilsnake mentions, it's stated that other members of D.R.A.G. are helping him out.

    Big & Little aluminium 5-slot wheels
    Does anyone make wheels like these in resin? Are there kits that might have them? Most of the wheels I find are flat in the center, they don't have the dish that these do.

    I'm not super knowledgeable about these cars, but I like the 29 look better than the 30-31's. Could the cowl from the roadster could be grafted in to make a 29 coupe, or are there other differences?

    I read somewhere that Jake King used to paint the Hemis he built for Sox & Martin Ford blue! He started out racing Fords after all
