  1. I'd love to see some Studebaker offerings. The 46-48 M-series with the vertical grille is a personal favorite of mine. The following one, the R-series is especially attractive and then there's the Champ that shared the front sheet metal with the Lark. Even before these was the gorgeous Coupe Express of 1937 vintage......fabulous. Steve
  2. 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
  3. 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......
  4. 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
  5. 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. 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. 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.
  10. 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.
