  1. Howard Cohen added a post in a topic Car song builds ?   

    A few decades ago, our model club made a list of car songs and passed the 200 mark  
    This is my version of the 'Little Deuce Coupe', copied from a Beach Boys t-shirt many years ago....flathead mill, lake pipes, just like the song...I gave this to a local car club when they turned 50.
    The 1964 JoHan is a 'shiny red superstock Dodge from 'The Little Old Lady From Pasadena'. 
    Lastly, the Testors Dodge police car is painted to resemble a modern day 'Blues Brothers' car.

    Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed the BARC race photos. A lot of people say they love racing but never get to a track, preferring to watch it on the telly...too bad, they don't know what they are missing. I volunteered at the tracks back from 1975 to 1982 and started again a few years ago. The smell of burning rubber, burning fuel, burning oil, not always good smells but all part of racing. I go to a few airshows in the area and two air museums and they are really amazing! Even though I understand the laws of physics and everything, I am always amazed when a plane takes off  and then lands on those chicken legs with wheels  Thanks for you message

    There were many Buick model kits from 59 to 70, full size and Skylarks and Rivieras. Then there was the GN kits.

    There were annuals made by AMT from about 1958 to about 1969 as 3in1 kits. Revell did a 32nd scale 56 Continental as well. The only other Lincolns I have seen are diecast, marked 24th but closer to 28th. 
  6. Howard Cohen added a post in a topic head swap on Gibson engines   

    If it was possible to simply swap the heads, I think Ross would have done that as an engine kit.
    There have been no RG engines made since he passed away. Ross had no extra stock and the retailers I know have all sold out. I do not think any more will be made

    I saw some photos of the interior and it is wild!

    World wide, Buick outsold Pontiac. For the past decade, maybe more, Buick was the highest selling import in China.

    No, probably never will  
  10. Howard Cohen added a post in a topic Got kids? Heading to the Detroit Show? Check this out!   

    This is a great way to get kids started! I did the 'Revell-Testors' make&take at the car show in Montreal in 1963, although I had built models the previous 2 years. It kept me happy and the following year I had a model car display and I kept at it. I still build models and I still go to car shows
     
    The disappointing part is those of you who only seem to see a downside to this. You complain about someone selling the kits on Ebay; you complain about the cost of the show ticket; you can't see the good in this, you can only complain. Quit your BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH complaining! This is a hobby to make your life more enjoyable! 
     
  11. Howard Cohen added a post in a topic What AMT/MPC Molds Might Still Exist at Round 2?   

    Might exist? They all 'might' exist in one form or another but what really exists I doubt anyone really knows for sure  I wonder if there was ever an accurate inventory done of the molds, artwork and all the other stuff needed to make a kit when Round2 took over. There may be stuff buried under boxes, stashed on shelves or wherever.
    Just for the record...how many of you know exactly what you have in your stash? Kits, parts, builts, etc., If you don't know, maybe they don't either  
    One question I have asked is, was there ever a complete list made of all the AMT, MPC kits ever produced? I have the Revell book and the Monogram book and they have a lot of stuff listed, although they do miss a kit once in a while. Does Round2 have a list? Hmmmmmm.....

    You guys sure spend a lot of time watching programs you don't like...are you all crazy? (rhetorical)

    What is GMG ? 
  14. Howard Cohen added a post in a topic 999   

    I have never seen a kit of 999 but I know of one that was scratchbuilt for the 100 years of Ford...not mine and no photos
