  1. Who is this resin seller? Any info?

    I've bought several items from Curtis and while sometimes a little clunky in most cases it's all we have for certain subjects. Some that I want bad enough to go the extra to make it work. Steve
  2. 1969 Beaumont front bumper/grille

    These parts look great. I was looking at the Model Car Garage website thinking I'd go ahead and order the Chevelle/Beaumont photo etch set so I'd have it when I get these resin parts to make the Beaumont but I have a hard time justifying $22.00 for only the "Beaumont" script for the grille. That appears to be the only part that one would need out of that set. The individual letters for the back panel aren't in there so it's just that script you'd use. Can't see it......
  3. Bandia Duesenberg

    Are you referring to the Bandai Duesenberg that was also released by Entex? If so it's a different scale than the Monogram Duesenbergs......They're 1/24th and it's 1/16th. Steve
  4. 1969 Beaumont front bumper/grille

    Just let me know when to order.....
  5. Model Car Garage Beaumont conversion kit

    At one time Model Car Garage produced a conversion kit to make a 1969 Chevrolet Beaumont (Canadian) out of the AMT 1969 Chevrolets. Originally it featured a resin front grille panel to replicate the split grill that the Beaumont has that the Chevelle does not. Now that part is not included in the kit. I would love to get one of the early conversion kits or just borrow the resin part to make a mold so I can build a Beaumont. Anybody got one?

  7. Looking for these for some projects. Available from anyone? Of course I don't have to have the Diamond T center.
  8. Splash Paints LLC Order

    I've ordered twice from Splash Paints and on both occasions the paint got to me blazingly fast and were well packaged. Haven't used any yet but they look great. Keep up the good work and I'll be ordering more. Steve
  9. STEVE SCOTT ,A.KA . [ UNCERTAIN T ]

    I've said this before, since George is dead we'll never know the answer to this BUT, I've heard many comments about how ugly some of the stuff George did was. Has anyone, besides me, ever considered just how much of the work that George did that's considered ugly was done that way because the customer, PAYING THE BILL, was standing over George saying, "I want it this way or else." A lot of his stuff was unattractive but look when he had a chance to create or embellish on his own, we got the Batmobile, THE Batmobile, the only Batmobile that matters. Sure it was an embellishment of the Futura but still...it's beautiful, made more so by the alterations to Bat-ify it. We'll never know just how much of each creation was Barris and how much was a customer with bad taste. George is still King of the Customizers and I miss him to this day. I wish I could have met the man.

    Call me stupid if you like but I put in for one copy of the kit at $25.00. I've spent or lost more and gotten less many times in the past. If he's successful and I get one, great. If not well, I'm not out that much and it was gone so long ago that I'll never miss the $$ anyway.
  11. Resin custom Studebaker caster ID?

    To be an early Batmobile it'd have to have a bigger fin.
  12. Wheel source for a 1937 wrecker

    I have one of those as well and for that build and many others I would love to find a good source of good "spider" wheels for bigger trucks like this.
  13. 1952 Reo Gold Comet

    When you get this REO done, how far behind can this be?
  14. What Model Is Your Sentimental Favorite And Why?

    My sentimental favorite is the AMT Silhouette show car. I've tried and hopefully succeeded in obtaining an issue with every box art that it had been available in. Second fave would be the AMT Deora and the same goes for the collection of Box Art although I am missing the "Alexander's Drag Time" box.
  15. Auto Quiz #327 - FINISHED

    Oh My!! Ugly it's NOT! I only wish this was available in scale. I'd love to build one of these in 1/25th!
