  1. Back in the day I bought a case of 12 of the first release kit for $8.50 each when it hit the local Action collectable/model store a friend of mine had at the time. I think 1998 was the release of the first Pro Modeler 69 Daytona if I remember correctly.
  2. Revell 1968 Chevelle

    With the separate frame and the non molded in exhaust this car is a 60's and 70's asphalt short track race car builders great starter kit
  3. Revell 1968 Chevelle

    Great call Revell badly needed, now if they will just tool up a nice 1964 Chevelle /Malibu that would fill another big hole in the Chevy line. The AMT 69 Chevelle is getting right pricy also so maybe??????????????
  4. Model car building is an adult hobby for our generation and not a kids toy as in the past so if you want to play you have to pay just the way times are now. I have no idea on real numbers but my guess is that if a model released today that can sell 5000 kits would be a big seller where as 30 years ago that same kit may have sold 50,000 units, but the 5000 most likely cost more to produce today then the 50,000 units did 30 years ago. If the quality is good and I want to build it $50.00 for a kit and the extras to go with it is not a bad deal for hours of building and the satisfaction of displaying when finished.
  5. The Lumina was released as a generic White kit also if memory serves me.
  6. The 68 and 69 Chevelles are a big need along with a 1964 Chevelle would be a Gold nugget also. I converted a 69 into a 68 which was pretty easy for a short track race car but would be really hard for a street version.
  7. Can someone that is up to speed on all the real recent and future Big Rig and trailer releases maybe post a list for easy reference. Thanks
  8. Drill Bits

    Check with a local Dealer/Mechanic shop that has a Snap-on tool dealer, their Blue Point line makes a high quality set of micro bits with the pin vise.

    Same here. A treasure trove of material has been lost but let the rebuilding begin.
  10. Junior Johnson #27 '61 Pontiac

    Great looking build.
  11. Short Track Race Team

    That is sweet. I love all the homemade haulers for the short track warriors.
  12. Old style window net

    Drywall tape can work also.

    Thanks for the update Gary. I visit other sites and they are great but Randy's is and has been my modeling home for many years and I have been missing the guys.
