  1. chryslerjunkandstuff added a post in a topic What's next from Moebius - How about a 70 F-100 4x4 and a 65-66 F-100   

    I too have the four '69-'72 Ford trucks issued so far, I'll be getting the 4x4 too, and of course the way cool '65-'66 trucks whenever they're released. This is good, as that tooling could and probably will be done as a '64 as well I'd guess, AND of course all kinds of room in the future for multiple body styles. Rounding out the bump side trucks with the addition of the '67-'68 model years is a thing that definitely needs to happen too, IMO. I also have the four amazing stock Hudson kits, both of the stock '55 and '56 Chrysler 300's, the stock '65 Belvedere 1, and the '65 Satellite. I'll be getting that '61 Pontiac at some point too. This is truly the Renaissance age for model kits, and I personally dig the Moebius offerings over pretty much all the others. These are great days we're living bros! It would be most welcome to see further tooling of those Hudson kits, backdated, to say a '50 Commodore convertible and a '48 Commodore 8 coupe (for myself at least, I'd replicate the ones me and mine had back in the 90's), and even a slick '49 4-dr sedan, why not? The '55-'56 Chrysler kits have great re-tooling possibilities as many others have stated. With ample but worthwhile work, you could do '55-'56 DeSoto Fireflites, '56 Adventurer, '56 Indy 500 pace car, '55-'56 New Yorkers, and '55-'56 Imperials (PLEASE DO!!) in pretty much any body style. That '65 Satellite would make a top shelf convertible too, very SHARP car! I'd absolutely buy every single one of those, and multiple Imperials. I'd further add to this hypothetical work-load and say that we all need pretty much EVERY Dodge or Fargo truck from the B-Series ('48-'53), C-Series ('54-'60), and D-Series ('61-'93), '57 or '58 DeSoto, '60 Chrysler 300 F, a proper Black Beauty Imperial, any Fuselage era MoPars, and a great many others really. I'd buy multiples of 'em all without question. Being a huge fan I'll offer that yall over at Moebius got the skills, superb quality, and completely unique product line to pull something like this off without much trouble, effectively putting your kits even higher into the "Completely Peerless" catergory. These things said, and all dreaming aside, I for one will continue to look forward to all of the future Moebius releases in the months and years to come, no matter what they are!

    Here ya go
    For only $11.50, I thought it was just too cool to pass up

    The 4-Door hardtop? Got any pics? I'm thinking about buying it too..

    '76 AMC Gremlin
    '67 Supernatural Impala
    '79 Chrysler 300
    A really cool 3d printed 1/24 vintage bicycle
    The rest are dust catchers for now
  6. chryslerjunkandstuff added a post in a topic Great Traders List   

    vintagedragcrazy, DrKerry, and Mopar-D are real stand up fellas! I'd trade with 'em anytime
  7. chryslerjunkandstuff added a post in a topic Air Trax   

    Got these from Air-Trax last week, and man are they nice! Go ahead, send these guys your money, you won't regret it..As soon as they make more obscure Mopars, I'm buying 'em!


  8. chryslerjunkandstuff added a post in a topic MPC Fuzz Buster Volare - lets kick it around   

    Yeah, ditto on those wheels, they look sharp! I have this kit, and while I'm not too keen on the t-tops, I have not one other complaint about it...It's a relic of sorts, and it's totally different, AND, it goes right along with my MPC '77 Volare. To top it off, it has some really nifty pad printed tires included that I would love to see sold X 8 in a tire parts pack. They would look right at home on the '83 Hurst Olds, and others. I have plans to buy another '80 and build it as a no option, slant six car..
  9. chryslerjunkandstuff added a post in a topic R&R '73 Cadillac Eldorado convertible   

    Man, you are totally right, in every regard. How? How did I not notice this before?? Now, I can't UN-see it...Good eye, and thanks!...So, time for a switch up : Anybody have a Johan '73 Eldorado coupe kit or promo they'd trade off? I'd be interested in one in any condition. Preferably really clean, but I'm not super picky (Yall shoulda seen the shape two of my other Indy pace cars were in when I got em..My Johan '63 Chrysler 300 convertible was complete, but glue bombed, and the body was in 7 or 8 pieces, and my AMT '67 Camaro convertible annual was missing most everything, and smashed nearly flat! Can't argue with $10 each though...) I have kits or cash to trade for this Eldorado, let me know!


  10. chryslerjunkandstuff added a post in a topic R&R '73 Cadillac Eldorado convertible   

    Yeah, I figure a place like that will be my best bet..just putting the feelers out there, you know, in case I can unburden one of yall from it
  11. chryslerjunkandstuff added a post in a topic 1969 AstroVette   

    Yeah, Lunar Module Pilot, this was Alan Bean's job on the Apollo 12 mission..
    Thanks yall for the hubcap info, I went ahead and ordered a set from that eBay seller..
    Also, thanks to some info posted on the "Rapid Transit System Paint Code 'Cuda" thread, I was able to source a set of HO scale white pinstripes from Microscale..
    Now, to actually build the thing!
     

  12. chryslerjunkandstuff added a post in a topic RMR Resin   

    This is correct, I must have over looked it somehow..I'll be giving this fella a call this week and order some of these goodies..
    Also, that is a WAAAAAY cool avatar picture sir, I've been watching Red Green since like the mid 90's! Gotta love the possum van!
  13. chryslerjunkandstuff added a post in a topic R&R '73 Cadillac Eldorado convertible   

    I'll also add that if someone has an old Johan '73 hardtop promo, I'd be keen on trading for that too and just do the conversion myself. Thanks!
  14. chryslerjunkandstuff added a post in a topic R&R '73 Cadillac Eldorado convertible   

    Yet another Google search, and all I found was pics of one that sold on eBay exactly 1 month ago, went for $66!! I just missed it..


  15. chryslerjunkandstuff added a post in a topic R&R '73 Cadillac Eldorado convertible   

    I didn't figure people would be lining up to trade one of these Caddys away! I'd just add that I would be willing to trade more than a few kits for it, or even some dough if that's what it takes..
