  1. I have acquired this older Revell kit. Complete, but no box. I have not been able to find anything on this kit. The only Revell 66 Shelby appears to be their Hertz car. The pic on the instructions doesn't reflect this version though. I'm assuming this is a Revell rebox of the Monogram kit? Everything looks the same, but the instructions have the Revell logos. Any thoughts? Anyone have pics of the Revell box? I'm more curious than anything else, as I'm not a collector, and the build itself will be decidedly not stock.
  2. Exactly. Mine had the same issues. Moebius sent me a new hood and floor pan, both in perfect condition. My ramp parts were all warped. I didn't realize just how badly until I started assembly. I was actually kind of shocked to see how it straightened itself out. A little CA glue does the trick. In looking at it now, one would never know there was an issue.
  3. It's because of issues like these warped parts that I always open a kit and check it out when I buy it. That way, if there are issues, I can request parts immediately. If I wait a few years before opening and starting it; and THEN finding warped or damaged parts, what are the odds of getting replacement parts if it's out of production?
  4. Yup, 3D files are available for both 2 seat and 4 seat side by sides. I'm considering trying one. There's also a Ram 3500 Megacab duallie available for 3D printing. And A&N Model Trucks has a Ram 3500 crewcab duallie available now.
  5. I still love these things, and miss my old one constantly. Had a 93 XJ Sport. Four door with the 4.0L and an auto. Was somewhat of a rare spec, as it had the factory rear spare tire mount. Bought it in 1998 with less than 20,000km on it. Put almost half a million km on that thing. Countless camping trips, a couple of Jeep Jamborees. Definitely miss it.
  6. What's your Cults name? I'll definitely purchase those headlight files when they're ready!
  7. You should follow him on IG. His edits are fantastic. He did a series where he turned everything into a 454SS. And the OBS Chev trucks became Buicks and Oldsmobiles. Very cool stuff. Some good inspiration for modelling.
  8. You bet it is! I had to throw a little Canadiana into this build.
  9. Just started re-reading Christine. Prob my favourite book. I'll re-read it at least once a year. And heck, we're in spooky season now, so it fits. And it's so much better than the movie, which is saying a lot because I love that movie. Also, Into The Drowning Deep by Mira Grant. Read that recently. It's excellent, and definitely a little different. Give this bookstore a follow on IG. They have some good recommendations. https://www.horrorbookstore.com/
  10. As seen in MCM Issue 214. Here's a few more pics of the build. It's an AMT trailer kit. Simple, quick, turned out okay. The kit is definitely showing it's age though. Heck, the parts trees still had the original ERTL stampings. Still, we need these trailers to complete our trucks, right?
  11. I received my new hood and floor, but told them my ramp parts were usable, and that I could make it work. Well, when I got into the build, the parts were much worse than expected. I thought I'd be abandoning this build. But with the right amount of CA glue, and a smattering of NSFW language, I got it assembled, and it looks great. You cannot tell the parts were as bad as they were. Give it a try, you might be surprised at how well it straightens out! In fact, this build will be in an upcoming issue of MCM.
  12. Plus, with the demand for parts, it's very possible they've run out and need to do another production run.
  13. Just as a note: If you feel the need to censor words in your own posts, then it's probably not a word you should be using. Using a dollar sign instead of an S. Using @ instead of A. Using f*!k instead of.... Well... you know what I mean. Maybe this will help people decide what to write and what not to write. Carry on...
  14. I miss Mitch Hedburg. My belt holds up my pants and my pants have belt loops that hold up the belt. What's really going on down there? Who is the real hero? I like escalators, because an escalator can never break; it can only become stairs. There would never be an "Escalator Temporarily Out of Order" sign. Only an "Escalator Temporarily Stairs... Sorry for the Convenience." I find that a duck's opinion of me is very much influenced over whether or not I have bread. I had a paper route when I was a kid. I was a paperboy. I was supposed to go to 2,000 houses... or two dumpsters. I don't have a girlfriend. But I do know a girl who would get really mad if she heard me say that. One time a guy handed me a picture, he said "Here's a picture of me when I was younger." Every picture of you is when you were younger. I order the club sandwich all the time. And I'm not even a member, man. I don't know how I get away with it. I have no problem not listening to The Temptations, which is weird. I got a king size bed. I don't know any kings, but if one came over, I guess he would be comfortable I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.
  15. Fall is here. The weather is cooler, the summertime bugs are gone, and walking the dog out at the lake is much nicer now.
  16. Have you inadvertently adjusted screen size? Hold down the CTRL key and spin the scroll wheel on your mouse. Should make the screen size bigger or smaller.
  17. Dark Horse S for the strip. Dark Horse R for roadracing. I don't mind the new dash. Kind of reminds me of the Fox body dash, with the big rectangle sitting on a flat "shelf." Kind of. Old. The new EcoBoost dash, two screens. The GT dash. One big screen. The digital Fox body graphic is cool though. Would totally use that one.
  18. My first kit. When I was really young, like probably 5 or 6, I had a hospital stay. My parents brought in a kit. I'm pretty sure it was the Lindberg Buick. I remember the swooping body line on the front fenders. I vaguely being into Kojak, and I think he had a Buick. I don't even know if that kit made it out of the hospital with me. I can't remember what my first real build was, but I remember some of the early ones. And I remember my first truck kit being one of the Monogram 1:32 Peterbilt trucks. I build a a few of those old snappers. As for kits I built and still have? Monogram 1:24 Superbird. I built two, still have the pieces. One is being rebuilt. Italeri Mercedes truck. It's a wreck, but I think it's complete. Will do a rebuild eventually.
  19. Seems to be one of those colours that changes dramatically depending on how the light hits it. I like it!
  20. No lemon laws here in Canada, but there are things one can do. Canada does have the Canadian Motor Vehicle Arbitration Plan which can be used to settle disputes. That only works on vehicles bought from dealers though. And they need to be less than 4 years old and under 160,000km. People generally don't know about this though. Private sales though or if you purchase from a fleet management company, there's not much you can do. Totally agree. Honda makes a good car, but they are incredibly dull. Even the original NSX! Great looking car, handled like a dream, all the performance you could want, but no personality. Feels like driving a fast Accord. Wholesaled it out to a Honda dealer. Whatever problems may exist, they're not going to be ours!
  21. I'm halfway through the Happy Toyz truck from Maximum Overdrive.
