  1. Howard Cohen added a post in a topic 6 cars popular enough to travel the world , but can't get a mainstream kit.   

    Historic Racing miniatures makes one, with engine, about $185. This car just doesn't have enough appeal to the average modeller for most companies to tool one up.You guys could buy a case each and that makes 10 cases. A decent run might be 25000 kits. I know, you are all thinking 'Model King runs 5000 kits'. True, but he uses existing molds, not new ones. Maybe if you all write to Revell or Tamiya or whomever, you might get somewhere

    The NNL Nationals in Toledo have been the same weekend for a few decades, with one exception  I drive about 5-6 hours to attend the NNL and it is worth it

    I know the Greg that was on the cover of SAE many years ago, the fire truck building guy. We have known each other for decades  ...but we are not old

    Autofest Oshawa...
    This is the 22nd year for Autofest and it is a great show! All types of vehicles from hot rods to muscle to antiques and lots more, well over 1000 in total. I took a few photos Friday during setup and lots more yesterday, with a few more to follow later today.  Follow the link and have fun

    This is an older kit that I got from Bob Dudek. He started the bodywork, filled in all the nooks and crannies, then handed it to me. I assembled the chassis, engine and other bits then off to the paint booth. I used all tamiya colours starting with primer, then painted the engine Blue Violet, chassis is French Blue, body is Bright Orange. Still lots to do from painting the plastic tires to adding all the finishing bits

    I sold a 20th Econoline a few months ago, mint in the box, $50, at a local show. I had it listed for more money and had no offers. The market in this area is weak, as far as collectors prices go. Even still, the original model was not popular, sold very poorly.

    Have you tried asking Modelhaus how long it will take? They are the source, so ask them

    That is the definition of a vendor, 'separating you from your money  I have a new line of products in stock (Scale Motorsport) and two more product lines on the way.

    To build models from the movie, you may want to start with the series 'American Graffiti'  If you want to build every car in the movie, you will need to build a few hundred   
  13. Howard Cohen added a post in a topic Looks like the Mobius Ford is a hit after all!   

    I have seen Paul's work online for several years and it is quite common for his builds to go for more than double this sale.He builds unusual or rare subject matter, has exquisite finishes, excellent details and never seems to build the same model twice, thereby insuring a solid (and apparently wealthy) following. 
    There have been a few others in the past who have done similar types of builds for similar money but Paul seems to be the only one still building. Any one of his builds would command a prime space in a museum. 
  14. Howard Cohen added a post in a topic Is there a Revell kit more expensive than this ?   

    I am not sure about the price as the kit is not available in Canada yet but a ship from the same series would sell for about $140 here.
