  1. Looking for 1990 Civic Hatchback kit

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tamiya-1-24-Honda-Civic-Hatchback-street-car-model-kit-re-leased/223412240724?epid=20029486795&hash=item3404684154:g:F0wAAOSwYXVcbpPL Currently on EBay
  2. Looking for 1990 Civic Hatchback kit

    Correct me if I'm wrong, Dave; but the OP asked for an EF kit (preferably a 1990). Now, the EF chassis went from 1984-91, correct? A minor refresh happened in 1988. Would he be able to use one of the later Hasagawa race car kits and fill it with the earlier Tamiya kit guts?
  3. Looking for 1990 Civic Hatchback kit

    I don't want to sound like a D-Noz, but $35 for one of those kits isn't bad at all. Quality is quite good on any of those kits, and unless you go to shows/swap meets, you won't find better for less. I have the Tamiya and Fujimi CRX kits and both were more than $35 and well worth the price I paid. You're rolling an EF, a car that has been supplanted by the EG/EK..... chassis. The only people who still mess with them are either broker than a pay-phone, or Die-hard enthusiasts for a chassis that is easily upgraded (and still sees some support from aftermarket companies). I did a B20b Turbo swap into a friends '91 CRX and installed most of the DA Integra suspension and brakes. Adding strut bars front and rear, camber bars, and other bits made the car fun, until he drove it under a truck (all the way up to the windshield base). Do yourself the favor and get one of the kits. $35-$60 may sound like a bit, but if you go detailed as heck, you'll have that and more into supporting parts.

    Most of them are race-type, but Aoshima and Tamiya produced a few EF type Civics. Check Ebay.
  5. AMT Chevy II Funny Car Body

    That is a part of the mold, Casey. Mine has it too (along with a few other AMT kits of that era).
  6. My guess, Scott, is it came from Missing Link (since it is part of the name of the thread?).

  8. 2019 Matchbox

    If that Sweptline comes out in 2019, it will be an expensive year in Die-Cast for me! I grew up in Sweptline Dodges and I will have to get as many of those as I can! Any word on release dates?
  9. anyone know what this kit is?

    Everything else is Nancy kit fare, I have several of the kits in various states of pirated/half-built. I pirated the roadster body and chassis bits as a starting point for a replica of my dads old 150" car. What are you planning for the parts? It is a pretty good kit (for its time) and can be kitbashed to make some really nice period rails.
  10. anyone know what this kit is?

    It is what's left of the Tony Nancy 22JR two-car dragster set.
  11. Is this a 79 or 80 Mercury Capri?

    As was stated, it is at best a very poor mix of Mustang/Capri. 1979-82 Capris are pretty much externally identical. Interior-wise, 1979 will have the door handle down low, with the door lock pin in the middle of the door pointing forward. 1980 will have the door handle moved to the top of the door (where it stayed from then on) with the door lock pin still in the middle of the door pointing forward. 1981 was when the door handle and door lock pin configuration was finalized into what everyone knows as their locations (pin and handle high on the door panel). This kit has Capri bulges with the Mustang flares. To be a closer-to-correct Capri, you would have to sand down the Mustang flares and re-construct the well opening to better match the Capri profile.
  12. Model Contests

    Buckeye Scale Auto Classic (held in the Columbus, Ohio area) had two buildings this year. 50-ish more models competing and one whole building just for vendors. From what I heard from friends up that way, it was a better show than last year by a LOT. Seems just your area, and possibly who puts the show on, may be why the show is slipping. Listening to the participants/vendors seems to work when it comes to improving show attendance.
  13. Maisto Mustang

    I would say it is more like a GT with a Cobra body kit.................
