    1960s Model Cars Illustrated magazine
    Hello Everyone. I am hoping one of the older guys (like me) can tell me how long this magazine was published.  I have 10 issues in my collection so far. I have the first issue from November 1963. This is Vol,1 No. 1  The last ( date wise)one in my collection is Vol.2 No. 3 February 1965.   I have seen pictures of the covers of April, June 1964 and January 1965. I am missing these last three mentioned and currently looking for.  Anyone here know when last issue was published??  Thanks for any help

    The Minilites are from Competition Resin. They look good to me. Its just going to be a shelf model as of right now, not looking to build a contest car.  The other wheels look great though.
          Thanks a bunch to everyone

            Hey, THANKS! this is the post I had remembered seeing in the past. !!! I was beginning to think I was making it up  Maybe you had posted the project here. I just didn't remember when and where, heck I have a hard time remembering what I had for breakfast. !!  56 years old and getting older everyday

    Thanks JC   I thought I read where someone cut slits around outer edge , wedged it out with braces ( scrap styrene) underneath and did lots of filling and sanding. Or, did any of the kit makers have flares added as build options for 70s Camaros?

    Jim Hall Camaro Trans Am 70 Camaro body?
    Maybe I haven't searched in the right place but does anyone here know of a resin replica body of Jim Halls Chappy Camaro?   I tried a google search but got nothing, The wheel wells are flared out  front and back. Or, has anyone done a detailed article on flaring the fenders on the AMT body?  I guess it could be done but a clean resin body already modified would be much easier than me butchering up a bunch of bodies

    71 OR 72 BUICK BUMPERS eVER OFFERED IN RESIN
    Got another question for the members here, Did/ or does any of the resin guys ever offer 1971 or 72 bumper sets for Monograms 70 GSX kit. It would be nice to do a 71 or 72 GSX build, I know the front changed and I believe the rear had a nameplate difference I think, I love building the GSX kit ,, it builds so nice. I think it wad one of Monograms best kits from that era. Sorry for all the questions but I have been commercial slot racing the past handful of years and now trying to catch up on model scene

    resin Cosma Ray by Greg Wann
    I am currently building MPCs Cosma Ray  and was doing some research online and stumbled upon a member here that built on of Gregs kits. Its been three or four years and was wondering if he still offers a resin kit of this car. I wonder if he still hangs out here and how to contact him?
                                                         Thanks a bunch

    Bill    your right on most cars were pretty basic. Greenwoods were always a notch above most others. His paint schemes were so cool.

    Not looking for one particular car.  I guess I could contact some of the custom decal makers/ send some pics and see what they would charge. I have the John Greenwood kits (and slots) I might try a hardcore search tonight

    60s/70s Corvette road racing decals
    Hello all, been awhile since I visited the forums. Took off a few years of modeling to race slot cars. I recently began looking for mostly 68 to 72 Corvette road racing decals. I see when I google this topic there are so many famous and not so famous really cool cars from this era. I have searched a few places but I am finding tons of drag racing decals at private sites, some of the big decal guys but I am not finding much of anything. I even would pay someone who produces custom order decals for their time. I thought they would be more common but maybe I am not looking in right place. Thank you for any help on my quest.
