  5. rickcaps55 added a post in a topic Modelhaus going, going Gone !!!!!!   

     I for one like all the other modelers on here will miss Modelhaus very much I never passed up a old glue boom or a old promo knowing that I could get what ever I needed to rebuild or restore that old boom or just fix something I had in stock and I want to thank both Don and Carol for the many years of very high quality work and parts they supplied to all us model nut's. That being said I also want to say I'm 64 I have been building models from the age of 10 so that's 54 years and I will still keep building till I can't or just don't want to any more I know there is a lot of younger guys on here that are not happy to see them go but like my self I retired at 60 after 40 years in the work world you just have had it all the fun maybe gone and you just don't care any more and every one need's that time to do things you have dreamed of or want to do it's your time now life is short every one deserves this. Once again Good lock God bless and enjoy your retirement Don and Carol Thanks You.!!!!

     When Modelhause come's back up to take orders you can get a 68 trans kit from them I have 2 of them it has all you need the dash hood frond grill and bumper rear bumper and red tail lights all you have to do is a little body work on the back of the 69 and your home free it's the time it take's to get the parts and do the work.!

     Wow ! The wheels that is a hard one I love both this is a car that looks great with stock or the Ralleye's I guess it will come down to what color you are going to paint the body and if that does not work put a picture of both up on the wall and fling a dart at one.!!!!!

     First off you did a awesome on the restoring of that Cad I love those old Johan models I have one I'm doing now but this is why we will have a big problem if we lose Modelhaus  with out them it's going to be very hard or imposable to restore a old glue boom I really hope someone picks them up. Again you did a awesome job and that Cad.!!

  15. rickcaps55 added a post in a topic First look - Production version Moebius 65 Plymouth Belvedere Sedan   

     I think this kit and the box art is awesome I have already preordered four kit from Modelroundup looking for word to getting them and I'm already to order the 65 Comet.!!!! To the guys that find all the things they don't like about this kit and any others try staying of the computer for a wile and build some models. I have to tell you guys I have been building models for 54 years and I display a lot of them all my friends and family and any other people that have looked at them through all the years no one person not one have ever said to me man that does not look right I think the things are off or the windows are to big or small that chrome is not like the real thing not one person has ever said that to me and nine of 10 people could not tell the deference if you had a photo of the real car setting next to the model Dam grow up build that's the only thing that's going to keep this hobby alive that and company,s like Mobius that are willing to go out on a limb and make new mold's of both the new and old cars to keep the ball rolling.!!!!!
