  1. I may have a T2 or a T4, but I can't remember which. I'd have to pull it out of storage. PM me with trade offers.
  2. By the way, here's the original post. I typed in "ugliest" and it came right up. Guess there aren't too many threads with that title.
  3. Glad he's got that luggage rack, you know - for those long trips!
  4. Great idea! Now you just need some cases of refreshment in the back. And my I suggest having jolly old St. Nick in the driver seat, leaning out the window holding a bottle.
  5. I think it came out great. If it was warped, you can't tell now. I didn't know the Coke Pinto included the 77-78 nose, I thought it only included the Pintera parts, which IMO weren't very attractive anyway. One question, does the kit include the slightly tinted glass, or did you do that yourself?
  6. Oh, then I guess I have a few "Gliders" in my junkbox. Many with no engines or axles, sounds about right! 🙊
  7. Pardon my ignorance, but what's a Glider? Is it a truck with no drivetrain? If so, how do they move it around the yard without it's own wheels? Seems like a big hassle that way.
  8. Don't sell yourself short on your weathering techniques. The chassis and inside the unit look just like well worn STEEL! and that's tough to accomplish. The outside looks so clean, but I get the feeling, if you're like me, that when you built it, it came out so good that you didn't want to mess it up by weathering it too much! The operating features are just "icing on the cake". It all looks great!
  9. Anybody know if the rear doors from the Revell 37 Ford panel truck would be close? I have a set of those you can have, if you want to try to use them.
  10. Shame on you, that's an insult to MPC! Actually, I can see quite a few variations between the two kits. Look at the firewall and rear tail panel areas, the details are different. If Palmer cribbed MPCs kit, they didn't do a great job at it. Maybe they just used it for "inspiration".
  11. Round 2 has the Lindberg/ex Palmer Corvette, Challenger, Mustang hybrid and 40 Ford with the one piece bodies. Lindberg issued them before they were sold to Round2. I don't know if they have the others with the multi-piece bodies - Don't really care, anyways.
  12. Maybe try to make a copy with sheet plastic, using the other side as a template. It's pretty flat and square. At least it'll get you by until you find an original one.
  13. This thread should've been titled "Meet the Flockers" 😃
  14. Also found on Stevens International. AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1262 1/25 1971 Ford Mustang Mach I $40.95 TBA AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1283 1/25 1962 Chevy Bel Air Don Nicholson Super Stock Race Car $36.95 TBA AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1265 1/25 Foxy Box 1975 Chevy Custom Van $37.95 TBA AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1284 1/25 Coke 1971 Volkswagen Beetle Superbug (Unity Graphics) $40.95 TBA AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1289 1/25 Sunoco 1934 Ford Service Station Pickup Truck $38.95 TBA AMT PLASTIC MODEL KITS AMT-1326 1/25 Ford C600 US Mail Truck w/USPS Trailer $70.95 TBA I wonder if #1262 is going to at least have the correct Mach 1 hockey stick stripes?
  15. Here's one no one guessed yet. What if it's this? Even though Lindberg called it a '70 m/y, it is a custom.
  16. Mmm, makes me think of 50/50 ice cream. 😋
  17. Wow, really? Thanks for the heads up. I guess I'll have to see one in person before laying any $$$ down. 🙁
  18. I absolutely remember that hot rod! I was about 5 or 6 when I saw them in a race with the old lady. My dad was building one at the time and it was an exact match. Found out years later it was the Lindberg 1/8 scale Hot Rod T. Gumby probably had this one. Colors even match!
  19. I just found this on Ebay. 1/24 scale. Any takers? I may have to ask Santa for one of these.
  20. Because we don't collect coins, stamps, autographs or gold bullion, so the short-sighted movie industry paints us as anti-social, miscreant losers, without any concern of life or world events. To add to the thread, I just found a quick scene in "Courtship of Eddie's Father" TV show. Looks like an MPC 70 Corvette.
  21. I so remember that CUCV from one of your write-ups in one of the old model car magazines in the 80s. I seem to recall a yellow, rusty, beat up, 4x4 1972 Chevy pickup with a horse rack and tobacco droppings. Wasn't that yours too?
