  1. I went way out of the box with the last Fairlane 427 issue.
  2. Just want to say that I received my 1970 and 1/2 Falcon resin body today. I had basically given up on getting it as I ordered and paid for it in June of 2020 and had not had any contact in over a year about the status, but it was through this board and people insuring me that I would get it that I just decided to let it ride and see what happens. The body arrived today it is the best quality resin I have ever personally purchased, at first glance and feel you would think it was injected styrene kit body except for some very minor mold flash. My biggest disappointment in the whole process was just the simple lack of updates, when I originally ordered I was told 8 to 12 weeks and that was fine even the 18 months is O.K if I just had some communication to know that things were still good and just not left in the dark. Anyway, I did get my body today 19 months after the original order and I am total blown away with the quality of the piece and so glad I stayed calm and waited. Thanks Jeff and Motor City resin casters for a great product.
  3. Is the late 70's early 80's Chevy G30 box truck available in resin anywhere?
  4. Looks like 1 each of the 5 new pickups and 3 ramp trucks for me next year. Between Mobius and Salvinos I may have to get a second job. LoL
  5. Same here kit arrived quickly and in great shape. Thanks DPNM.
  6. No longer available , this lot has been traded> Thanks. This post can be deleted.
  7. I have some military stuff I got in a lot purchase that I would like to trade. German Machine gun troops is factory sealed, The German tank crew is open sealed inside, the Panther tank is open sealed inside. Some odd and end parts and pieces. 5 bottles of military color paint 3 seem to be new 2 have been used very little and some random decals. Please ask questions if anything else needs to be known. Looking for 60's and 70's muscle cars Anything pre 1973 Pontiac Salvinos kits, the non already released Monogram bodys. The Pontiac Lemans, Pontiac 2+2 and any of their pre 1981 kits are the only ones that interest me. Kit can be opened but unstarted and complete is a must. Thanks. Will trade within the lower U.S 48 states only I am not on here everyday during the week so be patient if I do not respond right away.
  8. I figure I will get one and hold on to it and hope it does like the Can Do Wrecker and sell for about $350 dollars in a few years.
  9. Looking for the Miller decals from the new AMT Tractor or Trailer or both, I do not need the whole sheet just the Miller logos from the sheets if you are not planning on using them let me know what you are looking for as trade. Thanks.
  10. Good to here from you Jeff I am holding out hope for the 70 and a 1/2 Falcon body (ordered 6/20/20). I have stopped asking and just started hoping it shows up one day and your post gives me a glimmer of hope in seeing it. Thanks.
  11. I think that when Coors first started trucking their beer to the east coast way back in the early 80's they used refrigerated trucks and there beer not getting hot while shipping was a big thing back then, I cannot swear to that but it seems I remember that, but I was just a youngster way back then.
  12. Will this most likely be a 2022 release or possibly a late 2021? Need to plan my hording budget.
  13. I am looking for the Truck cab pictured Ihave a project I would like to build has it ever been done kit or resin.Thanks.
  14. Did all 4 of these kits have the same chassis in them or were they kit specific? Thanks.
  15. I have a 1970 and a 1/2 Falcon coming that was ordered on June 20th 2020 I am really looking forward to building it I know it will be top quality when it does arrive, last contact I had was Nov 25 and it was at the top of the line then.
  16. I have no interest in building that myself but I will say that your mastering and casting work look fantastic.
  17. I would think any of the 60's and 70's 1/2 up thru the 1 ton truck kits with the pickup cabs would be great sellers. You can build stock pickups ,car haulers, flat beds, stake bodies, wreckers just so many options from a great era in the pickup truck history. It would be great to have a 1 ton dually chassis in the 67 to 72 Chevy pickup. truck.
  18. Are you still needing/wanting kits if so what type kits do you have for trade such as ,truck, street car, race car ,big rig.
  19. 95 to 99 would be the same body on the real race car.. Monograms first kits had rounded (bowed)sides from top of the doors to the bottom of the rockers and these are know as round side Monte Carlo kits they later corrected this and made future kits with flat sides like the actual race cars. I cannot recall when the mold change happened both make a nice looking model but the flat side kits are the more correct bodies for the actual 95 to 99 race cars. The 2000 to 2002 Monte Carlo is the same body so any of those kits will work. Every year or so the real race cars would get small tweaks but for model building the above will get you where you want to be.
  20. If it has all the goodies in it I will be in for one or three myself.
  21. That resin looks a lot like the one photo I found of a built resin one. Not to bad of a cast but it would be hard to pay that much for it.
  22. Motor city resin casters has this one that has a good looking grille but I am not sure if it would be the right scale for a road tractor and I would not pay $60 just to get a grille, I emailed about just about a grille only purchase but I did not get a response .
  23. I asked this a few months back and just wanted to give it one more shot before I put it to rest . I am looking for a 61 to 65 H series cab perferable with sleeper, these were also known as double Falcons. I am not a big truck guy but in doing research I cannot believe there is not more out there for this particular truck. I have seen a one off resin built that was O.K and that has been it.
