  1. Did you get what you were looking for? I wish I had of read this post when it was new, because I am sure I have the smaller doggies in at least a couple of kits.
  2. I thought the only kit that had the 1956 Bel Air "full wheel covers" aka hubcaps, was the old Monogram kit, which is cast in the larger 1/24 scale. Are you guys saying that they actually made some of the fulls in 1/25? I was so disappointed not to find a set of these in the Revell/Monogram 1956 Nomad kit.
  3. Edsel D, Did you have any luck finding any new '66-'67 Charger hubcaps/Wheel covers? That's what brought me here, wanting to maybe use them on a new build. I did find the unchromed resin cast '68s at Fireball Modelworks, but I would like to try to get the older ones to see which I like the best.
  4. I really like the "stance" on yours. Looks realistic.
  5. Thanks Ace and Mark. I displayed mine on an engine stand next to my stock 1941 Plymouth coupe that I "copped out" with a long antenna and the driver's police spotlight from the Heller "Magpie" police Renault 4CV kit. The car was glued with Testor's and just recently fell apart and was added to a parts box, but that engine is still intact! Sorry to hear that about the Ala Kart reissue, I had a friend that waited and waited to either find one, or for it to be reissued.
  6. I have two also. The first of the two, was just a matter of finally getting lucky and getting through on the telephone, as soon as I saw it on Tom and Jill Carter of Hobby Heaven (Spotlight Hobbies) newest listings back in the late 80's And the second one, a real glue bomb (but it's all there) was a gift from my friend Bill in Peoria ILL. that just showed up unexpectedly with the mail one day back in the early '90s. I'm looking at restoring and building the "Glue Bomb" before year's end. Factory stock with a slightly lowered stance (of course) custom Frost grey with white coves, blue interior, Alberta plates, and a Edmonton Oiler's equipment bag in the opening trunk, for that 1980's pseudo '50s-early-'60s look.
  7. That's why I love this forum! I built that very same engine stock, painted it Model Master's Chrysler Engine Red, with the raised type and ram in white, back in 1987, and it must've been raided out of my AMT 1929 Ford roadster kit. I couldn't remember where it came from... Thanks fellas. Would you happen to know what year and make of 1:1 Dodge that those motors showed up in first?
  8. CLEAN! Did those nice Bowtie hubcaps come with the vintage kit?
  9. Tony and his wife are delightful people to do business with. Getting ready to purchase some more items from them.
  10. Best use of a "Campus Friend" I have ever seen! Scooter and Volk's truck really nice too.
  11. I remember speaking to the TKM owner also. Around 1984 - 1985 I think. Yes, very nice person to speak with and he had an extensive catalog, he even had a Greyhound/Trailways Scenic Cruiser in 1/25 scale! I ordered one of his 1946 Chevrolet Fleetlines. I still have the catalog, and the unbuilt Fleetline. As for "Mr T" and his Air-Trax offerings, I have his 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, and it's very nice. I have the earlier more challenging issue with the bonnet needing to be scribed and broken free, but I understand that he has added another body option by having the bonnet molded in place.
  12. I don't understand, but I will practice it to visualize the trick. Thank you
