  2. Howard Cohen added a post in a topic Filled out my Trans-Am collection   

    I do have another kit, so I may do a second body, paint the yellow first, let it cure for a year (that seems to be the norm), then paint the blue, clear coat, then decals. It has been sitting for about 3 years now, so it must be a priority

    I am working on the Camaro, Ron Fellows version, but the yellow decals are very poor, don't cover the blue paint and the fit is not good. I bought a second kit just for the decals. The kit does go together well, fit and finish are excellent as is the detail.

    Pro Tech also makes generic street rod gauges, both decals and photo-etch bezels in different colours.
  5. Howard Cohen added a post in a topic Model Car Museums - Are There Any Out There?   

    Yes, there are 1:1 car museums that have a model display including the Indy Museum that has a display of Indy cars.
    In Essex, Ontario, Canada, there is the Transportation Museum that has a display of model cars, not very extensive, from a former hobby store where the owner passed away and left the models to the museum. 
    The Canadian Automotive Museum in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada has a stash of model cars but no space to display them. They are renovating the museum (a 10 year plan) and hope to have space in the future.
    There is a military museum in Ontario that inherited a model car collection of about 1000 pieces in 2008. I happened to see the collection before it went to the museum and take a few photos. I have contacted the museum and they told me the collection is stored until they can find space for it and sort through it. Yes, I volunteered but they  don't take outside help. http://public.fotki.com/howardcohen/collection-hanover-2008/
    As for the museum in Utah, it seems to be only open a few days every two years, so highly doubtful you will get to see it. I know of a few people who tried to make an appointment to see it, only to show up and find the door locked  
    Yes, we do need more model museums but where, by whom and this hobby would have to support it and that is a tall order

    You can do an internet search in the Yellow Pages for hobby shops in any city in North America  
  7. Howard Cohen added a post in a topic And so it starts on ebay   

    That model has been on before and did not sell, I saw it a few weeks ago. It has been on this time for almost a week with no bids. He has lowered the price and will probably lower it again to sell it. There are a few other resin items listed by other sellers and the prices seem normal. The madness won't start for a while. Perhaps the speculators will get surprised when the prices don't skyrocket  
    In a related note, when Franklin and Danbury Mints closed a couple of years ago, their cars did not go up in price and in many cases went down. The selling price around here for a Franklin Mint car is under $100.

    Some of the static AMT kits started out as slot car kits and were released in two fashions, slot and static. Monogram did the same with the Chaparral 2D. I can't remember if the McLaren-Elva and Lola raced in the CanAm or only the USRRC.

    I wonder if right now Don and Carol are regretting their decision to give so much notice without putting a limit of the size of orders. I wonder what the modelling community would do if they decided to just close up, return all the money, say 'Thanks, we are done' and go on a very long vacation

    Oh, so buying and reselling is wrong...too bad because every time you go to a hobby shop or show and buy a kit from a vendor or from a collection, that is exactly what you are doing

    I left some of the trim without foil as it looked too heavy with it. I wanted the gold trim to be stronger.

    Testor's White Lightning is a very transparent metallic/pearl white, almost like a candy. If you see primer, get your eyes checked
