    Hi Ed, Which truck looks like Joe's as the one with the barrels in the back is one I built.

    The Fujimi 427 Cobra I opened the box looked at what was supposed to be a 427 engine and closed the box and traded it away I will stick with the Revellogram Cobra!

    Some vintage ditties from the 1st Southwest Challenge
    Here are some pics from the first Southwest Challenge back in about 1986 I was going through some old negatives that survived a house fire 13yrs ago. Don't know who built these except for mine in this batch it is the Model A with the barrels in the back. More pics will follow as I get them scanned in enjoy.

    The MPC kit is a different kit from the AMT the MPC kit has had a long run with several different decal options at least they made an attempt at changing the valve covers to represent the Boss motor. the decals are very nice. That version of the AMT kit was the Warren Tope kit made into a pseudo street car. there were no side marker lights molded in as it is the racecar body.

    This is a Trans-Am road racer not a drag car. Glad to AMT bring back this version.

    This is an interesting topic, As one of my LHS owners wants to do a show and shine type of an event to help get people especially the younger crowd back into hobbies and wants the help of our club to help organize and work the event. So I think it is great that he wants to do this.

    Regardless of the reasons they are produced in the U.S.A. we should be happy about this. I know being from Michigan this is very cool as up around the Kalkaska area there isn't much industry. So to produce these kits there is a great thing all around. I have heard that some stuff from other manufacturers is produced here in the U.S. like some of their limited run stuff.

    Do not forget all the 1/43 kits out there as the list would be at least twice as big.
