  1. Great Traders List

    Post your list of members with whom you've had a positive trading experience, as well as those who you would not recommend trading with.
  2. Should be out within the next two months or so. Excellent choice for the box art. Original issue, for comparison:
  3. Here are a few car kits announced for a 2019 release: AMT 1138 -- 1/25 1969 Chevy Chevelle Hardtop AMT PP21 -- 1/25 Custom Caps & Wheels Parts Pack (4 each) MPC 906 -- 1/25 Ridge Runner (Pinto) Modified Race Car MPC 911 -- 1/25 1969 Pontiac Firebird Convertible Polar Lights 960 -- 1/24 Coca-Cola VW Beetle (Snap) Polar Lights 965 -- 1/25 Classic 1966 Batmobile (Snap) AMT 1151 -- 1/25 Dyno Don Nicholson's Mercury Cyclone Eliminator II Funny Car
  4. So many unidentified wheels. Anybody care to I.D. which kit(s) these wheels are originally from?: #1: 1/25 AMT '63 & '64 Buick Riviera, '63 Chrysler Imperial HT - Custom Wheels #2 - AMT '67 Thunderbird - Custom Wheel #3 - 1/25 Monogram '67 Corvette 427 Roadster #4 - Aurora Aurora Jaguar XK-E #5 - JO-HAN '60s Chrysler kits - Custom Wheel #5: - Revell '65 Chevelle SS Z-16 wheel cover
  5. Here are a few newly announced 2019 kits from AMT and MPC: AMT 1139 -- 1/25 Ford C-600 Hostess Delivery Truck AMT 1140 -- 1/25 GMC Astro Semi Tractor Cab (fingers crossed the turbine engine insert has been found) MPC 882 -- Godzilla Army Jeep MPC 901 -- 1978 Dodge D-100 Custom Pickup Truck
  6. June 2019 or so.
  7. 2019 Round2 Car Kit Releases

    I hope the surfboard will be included, but I don't think there ever was a rack, just that funky roof top mounted cargo carrier: I would expect it to be the same one they're including with the Cameo and '53 Ford pickups.
  8. I believe the semi-soft Goodyear GT Radials were included with that kit, as well as many of Revell other 1/16 scale kits of that era- snap Camaro Z/28, Firebird, Porsche 928, etc. IIRC, they were included as front floatation tires in some of Revell's tractor (as in tractor-trailer) kits, too more recently. The only downfall is the material they used to mold the tires was prone to dry rotting, so finding a good set isn't easy. Keep scouring ebay, though...
  9. Preliminary box art for the forthcoming 1/25 MPC Dodge D-100 Pickup kit:
  10. I acquired a few more wheels in a lot, so if anyone knows for sure which kit(s) these are from, let us know, please. #1 -- .715" diameter, have 65 cast into the backside of the disc area: #2 -- .617" diameter. I think these are from early AMT '32 (and maybe '40, Assembly and Disassembly style kits?) Ford kits, based upon the snap-like interference fit on the black plastic wheels they were paired up with: #3 -- MPC Gapp & Roush Pro Stock Pinto Flys?: #4 -- No idea if these are a matching set or not, but both have Monogram like yellow plastic underneath the chrome plating. The wheel half with the open hub bore has three indexing slots, aligning with three of the spokes, and the other wheel half has one indexing pin, aligning with one spoke...meaning if you assemble both halves, the spokes all line up, instead of being 30 degrees apart: #5 -- Oddball spoked wheels/wheel covers. Small one measures .570" (so about 13" in 1/25...AMT '60s compacts?), large one measures .747" in diameter:
  11. AMT 1150 -- 1/25 Autocar Dump Truck AMT 1160 -- 1/25 1940 Ford Sedan Delivery Van - Coca-Cola
  12. 2019 Round2 Car Kit Releases

    AMT 1130 -- 1/25 1923 Ford Model T Roadster Street Rod AMT 1131 -- 1/25 1965 Chevelle Surf Wagon AMT 1146 -- 1/25 1953 Ford Victoria Hardtop with Coca-Cola machine AMT 1149 -- 1/25 1963 Chevy Impala SS MPC 914 -- 1/8 Schwinn Stingray 5-Speed Bicycle MPC 918 -- 1967 Pontiac GTO Race Version with Starting Light MPC 919 -- 1969 Dodge Charger R/T Snap - Coca-Cola
  13. AMT 1128 -- 1978 Subaru BRAT Pickup Truck
  14. I know people like cheap things, so...
  15. Every chemical which strips paint is going to be harmful if inhaled, ingested, etc. One look at the MSDS saftey sheet for any of these products makes that very clear, so it's pretty much a case of try them and find whichever products works best for you. Nobody can say one chemical works best for every situation, as the plastic, paint, primer, conditions, etc. all can vary wildly from one person to the next. All people can do is post their experience, state which paint, primer, etc. was used, which specific chemical was used to strip, and how well it did or didn't work.
  16. 2019 Round2 Car Kit Releases

    Looks like this one's been cancelled.
  17. AMT 1132 Double Header!! Trailmobile Exterior Post Van Trailer kit:

  19. Model King '59 Imperial.

    Is this the first time Round2 has included metal screws for the old promo-style chassis plate mounting?
  20. Model King '59 Imperial.

    Here's a bottom-of-the-box plan view of the parts in silhouette:
  21. Keeping things in 1/24 scale, any one of the 1/24 Monogram '32 Ford Roadster, '29 Ford Pickup, '36 Ford, or '40 Ford Pickup would be make good donors for traditional '60s style suspension parts.
