  1. Wow. I sold an SMP 1911 Chevrolet, which is supposed to be one of the rarer kits out there (missing a part or two) for less than that.
  2. Thanks for the great start, guys, I just needed a launch point and you've done that. Much appreciated.
  3. I realize this is an extremely broad topic, but as I'm getting back into modeling, I've been directed to many sources of information, most notably Donn Yost. However, at this time, I have neither the time or the resources to build up a "collection" of tools or setup like Donn has, though it is awesome. I guess my question is, would any on here have any advice for me that would suit what I guess I would say would be an "intermediate" modeler (stole that from Revell)? Obviously, I can figure out some things on my own, but I'd appreciate any input for some essentials. As I type this I realize that IS a super broad question, as everyone has their go to brushes and glues and what not. Still, any one out there that considers themselves somewhere between beginner and Donn (haha) let me know what you think. A "for example" is, I don't have or need a crazy compressor setup like Yost. I can spend some money to acquire supplies, but I just kind of want to have fun, do a pretty good job without putting myself into the poor house. Sorry again for the wide scope of this post.
  4. Thanks to all of you; Burghers and Staters and everything in between.! Bill, I live in E-town, we're practically neighbors. I lived in York for a few years as well. Do you have a site of FB page? If not, let me know and I'll see if I can make a meeting.
  5. No, I guess I'm asking if anyone is interested in buying them for a few bucks if it's something they like doing, because at this point they're just sitting around and collecting dust. I'd like to get them into the hands of anyone who wants to bring them back and appreciate them. I'm not trying to peddle them or make a bunch of money, as I just joined tonight I didn't check if there's a buy, sell or trade forum.
  6. Just wondering, I have two that my dad and I built in the 80's that I still have---I think one is a Model A Town Car and the other is a '32 Chevy convertible. They are beat to heck and have missing parts. I have had them forever, and while the nostalgia is great, is there anyone that might be interested in restoring them? I really don't know what to do with them at this point. ***NOTE: I see there is no buying on here, so I posted a trade inquiry in the appropriate area. Also the site that is listed to sell on is no longer available.
  7. Thanks, Tom. I just posted in the "Wanted" area of the forums about information on kits. You have a bajillion posts haha, so if you get a chance to read it, I'd love any feedback you may have!
  8. Hey all, I'm a lapsed modeler getting back into the hobby since giving it up in my teens (I'm 43). My dad built mostly plastic car models when he was way younger than me and got me into it when I was probably 8 or 9. He used to have a bunch of cool kits from the '70's. He also helped me build two Hubley metal kits as a boy (we lived in Lancaster, PA for a long time)---which I still have! They are pretty busted up though. Anyway, I got kind of back into the fun about 15 years ago but never finished anything. Recently, the bug bit me again. I bought a AMT ProShop 1958 Plymouth Belvedere (Stephen King fan) at an estate sale and actually managed to finish it! Turned out pretty good. I'd like to start again, but I'm hoping to maybe start body painting again ( I gotta admit; pre-painted bodies are conducive to my schedule). I'd really like to get my hands on some of those kind of kits my dad had (he has passed) because I thought they were awesome. But man, they're pricey. I'm going to post after this in the appropriate part of the forum to see if I can find some inexpensive kits to find. I do 1:24/1:25 plastic. Thanks for letting me in! Greg
