    Li'L Coffin fun
    Back in the late 60s or early 70s there was a song called Delta Dawn about a woman waiting on a corner for her lover that
    jilted her.  It's possible that this "ghost chaser" may have found her lover.
     
    My 14 year old Grandson has been visiting from Iowa and wanted to build a couple models while he was here.  This is his second.
    He's got the talent and I hope he continues when he gets back home to Knoxville Iowa.

    I've got one that I built some time back.  ome of the detail was a monster to BMF.  You did an excellent job.

    Sledsel, be sure to post it when you get it done.  I want to see it.

    Tom, maybe we could talk the companies into a 67/68 Camaro convertible based on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.

    I agree with you Scott.  Skip the S&H and just bring out the Torino.

    I would love a Kaiser and buy one or more in a heartbeat, but I'm not sure that they would sell well, but then I guess the same could be said of their bold move with the Hudsons.  I would think that a good move on their part would be a 61 Ventura 4 door hardtop or Catalina station wagon.  Equip the wagon with a realistic trailer hitch for hauling the 2 door hardtop to the drags.  I could also see a Desoto variant off of their 55/56 Chryslers.

    What I don't understand is why we can't get a 58 Ford?   I really appreciate the 57s, and thank both Revell and AMT for their offerings and variety, but I can't believe that I'm alone in wanting the "forgotten" Ford.  I would love it in a station wagon version.

    Jim.  It is.  Along with the other goodies, (forgive me for I have sinned) I gave it a little "attitude".

    early 70s Camaro dirt tracker
    This is a 70s Camaro as would have been seen running the dirt tracks of Iowa back in the 1970s.

    56 Ford Fairlane
    56 Ford 2 door hardtop
    This is my latest build.  It's mostly box stock except for a couple of things to give it class.

  11. Kodiak Island Modeler added a post in a topic IF Revell,Round2 and others would make a few more station wagons. What would you like them to be?   

    It would probably be easiest to get them to build something on an existing model.  One thing I would love to see is a 58 Ford which both Revell and AMT have the beginnings for.  A 51 Ford Woody would also be a welcome model, and could be based off of AMTs 49 or 50 Ford.  For the bowtie crowd, AMT could consider 68/69 full size Chevy wagons from the 67 or 70 that they now have, and for the Mopar people they could give thought to a 57 or 59 Plymouth wagon from the 58 Plymouth.  Moebius, how about a Desoto wagon from your 55/56 Chrysler or a wagon from your proposed 61 Pontiac?  By making a year just off of an existing mold, they can come up with a brand new product with minimal expense.  I have very few expectations of ever seeing these things materialize, but it's fun to dream.

    I had a real one like that back when I was in the Army. It even shared the same stance, though mine was due to dead springs. Nice build of a really cool car.
