Those simplified chassis to make for a quicker easier build on the older kits, although the newer chassis or interior sets for the older kits would be nice, even if it's the interior only to bring the interiors up to the detail levels of Revell's Snap Kits.
Dad and I went to the Dupage show today too. Picked up the Atlantic, 300c Custom, Astro Supremes, and the Jimmy Flinstone resin idol heads and Caddy Shack Gopher. Dad has decided to get back into the hobby and picked up the '41 Plymouth kit for himself! It'll be the first model Dad has built since I was 5...........and I just turned 40 last Friday...............
Welp, now I can add alternator to the list of parts needed for my Jeep.............took it to the office today since the lot was being repaved and I don't like parking my 200 in the street unattended and somewhere in the 7 mile round trip, it gave up the ghost. I did finally swap out the dried out wiper blades on my lunch break though for the new ones I bought back in May.
Went to top off the tires, shocks, and radiator on my Jeep so I could drive it to work while the lot is being partially repaved only to have the valve in the left front tire start giving me problems and I couldn't find a valve removal tool so I could pull it out and see if that was bad or if it just needed to be retightened........didn't bother to to check the water level at that point as it was too late to find an open parts store.
