  1. Name that movie quote

    No ideas for this one?

  3. Revell 2019

    This whole "creating cash flow" idea just boggles my mind! How long has Round2 owned AMT, MPC, Polar Lights, and Lindberg, and whatever else they may have? How much cash flow do they need before they can justify creating a new tool? In my mind, a new tool would create a fair amount of cash flow, especially if the company has paid attention to the "wants" of the hobbyists, and that would add to the cash flow they generate from re-issues. In the case of the New REVELL, is seems it should be even easier to take the chance on creating something the model builders actually want to build. I've been around this hobby since the early sixties, and I'm kinda tired of seeing the same kit, in different box art, with new decals. To me, it's still the same old kit, and I've seen the comments from very experienced builders about the shortcomings of those old kits. A little research on a fresh idea would go over well with me, for sure!
  4. 1952 hudson Hornet convertible

    WOW!!! What a nice looking drop top! Early fifties at its best!!
  5. 1968 chrysler 300

    I think the '68 300 is one of Chrysler's most beautiful automobiles, ever! You've done a very nice job rebuilding this one. Keep up the good work!!
  6. 7 Muscle Cars I Hope Will Be Kitted Soon

    The '66 thru '68 Grand Prix were large cars with big engines, but I think they had a fair amount of muscle, and I would certainly like to have a 1/25 scale kit hanging about, especially the unique '67.
  7. '65 Fury. Back on the Bench.

    This is great stuff, here!!
  8. 7 Muscle Cars I Hope Will Be Kitted Soon

    A line of Ford Ranchero pickups other than Falcon based (like '66 thru '77) would work, also.
  9. 7 Muscle Cars I Hope Will Be Kitted Soon

    I guess I'm a proponent of them taking what they have and issuing new subject matter from that. A prime example for my interests would be to take the REVELL '67 Dodge Coronet R/T and back-dating it to represent a '66 Dodge Coronet 500, and then make it a convertible. Subjects that have been kitted before, no matter how good or bad the older kit, get less interest from me, although I did spring for the recent '68 Chevelle and the '69 Boss Mustang. Bring on something that hasn't been done.....'73 thru '77 Pontiac Grand Prix, Chevy Malibu, Buick Regal, Olds Cutlass, and Pontiac LeMans would be nice.
  10. J&J Racing

    I helped a friend with his race car back in the late 80's. He loved dirt track racing! I used an AMT '72 Chevelle kit. I replaced the fenders on the driver's side with heavy foil. The roll cage and hood scoop are scratchbuilt. The dirt track tires are aftermarket pieces. Weathered with the Rustall system. Thanks for peekin' at this one!
  11. J&J Racing

    Thanks, Wayne!!
  12. Paint rack

    Great way to re-purpose! Looks extremely functional!
  13. Junk.

    Very nicely done on a "Backyard rebuilder". Great pics, too. Very clear.
  14. 72 Challenger

    I kinda had an idea that would be the opinion of the ARII kit! That's why I haven't built the Mustang.
  15. 72 Challenger

    Here's another one.....in 1/24 scale, put out by ARII: Don't know anything about this kit, but I have a '72 Mustang kit in the same series. The Mustang seems to be MUCH bigger than 1/25 AMT and MPC Mustang kits, which makes me wonder if the 1/24 scale callout is incorrect.
  16. Yessir! Fuel cap is waaaaaay back near the rear wheelwell:
  17. Zip-Ties

    I really like this step-by-step procedure! I'll keep this in mind for future builds.
  18. Really cool pickup! Perfect color for a '96 Dodge! I like the bed texture, too. I'm gonna hafta start using that method on my pickups, now!! LOL
  19. AMT 60 Merc Convertible "Coastal Cruiser"

    This is a great looking Merc!! Looks long and low! Perfect color for a cruise around a Florida beach! I'd certainly drive it!!
  20. J&J Racing

    Thanks for all the great comments! I had a blast building this one, as it brought back memories of going home on Saturday night with red dirt in my hair!! I just now saw another great dirt track Chevelle build on this site, and it reminded me of some older Chevelles that ran the track where we raced.
  21. Dirt track Chevelle

    That looks great! I like the dirt track residue messing up the red and white!!
  22. 1965 Mercury Comet Cyclone

    I think that is one of the coolest hoods available from the sixties. Very functional, without obstructing the driver's view of the slowpoke he's about to overtake!
  23. The red car might be the '65 Comet
  24. Is this your fathers Oldsmobile?

    It appears to have a Tennessee Antique Auto license plate. I'm surprised my home state would allow it to have one!
