  1. Probably a good thing I didn't ask for an up-top, then?
  2. Something went "ping!" in the ol' memory bank when I saw this pic. Think I built it as a kid. And that is all I need to want it again. Will a reissue happen?
  3. All new tooling? Please let that include clear headlight lens.
  4. Awesome little speedster. Is that an ICM kit? Check the box, I think the country of origin is the Ukraine. I'm not sure we will ever see these again.
  5. Possibly the first time I have seen this kit built as a jaw dropper.
  6. Wondering if the new 2022 Audi E-Tron GT will be sink hole city like some of Revell-Germany's more recent foreign cars? Sure, I can fill & sand, or, I could look at all the kits I already have, and say "nah".
  7. December must watches: Christmas Vacation Polar Express Scrooged The Santa Claus (all 3) Home alone Die Hard
  8. I would be very surprised if there is any molding changes. Expect the same kit as before. Maybe if lucky, new decals.
  9. It's a car. That comes in a kit. So... This almost full-size Tamiya model isn't just for kids - Hagerty Media
  10. I think people should be aware, Chris lost his wife last month due to Covid. This I learned from his Facebook account. I feel for the man. To have to run a small business, while grieving a personal loss, must be such a hardship.
  11. Only interested in building a garbage truck if I enter it in a contest with a nice fresh, smelly load of garbage in the back. I call it "ultimate detailing."🤮
  12. I would definitely go for the Rat Fink Int'l truck. Not for $70+, but otherwise, sure. Also, may have a Rat Fink figure included. Just a guess. It certainly implies more than just decals.
  13. Just came across my photo of Derrike Cope's Chevy Lumina. Showed it to him at Boston World Of Wheels the year after he won Daytona. He liked it, signed it (hood was off car at the time). It sits at the bottom of my display case.
  14. Several quality reference photos of the 1:1 Mooneyes here: The Mooneyes Dragster: Cloning Our Heros | DrivingLine
  15. Oh my Gawd, now they're all art critics.
  16. Likely a third party vendor. Notify Amazon so they can stop this from happening to anyone else.
  17. Man, that is sweet! Iconic muscle car.
  18. It's the doings of the marketing people. Give the people a name they recognize, and it sells. Never mind that they bastardize the original.
  19. Small to large: Maverick, Ranger, and F-Series. Ford Ranger length: 210.8" Honda Ridgeline length: 210.2" Darn close!
  20. Being Memorial Day weekend here in the States, we made our rounds for family burial cemeteries. That's when we saw a headstone with a '67 Belvedere on top. Have no idea what it was made of. What a cool memorial.
