    There was a 1965 Chevrolet Van in the series . I've long wished for a return of it and for someone to do one in 1-24th scale as I used to manufacture van accessories .

    No joke ! I'd be real leery of buying museum prices .....
  3. Eshaver added a post in a topic 1:25 scale kits with figures ?   

    One of the Revell issues of the Mysterion had a Ed Roth . It wasn't pre painted . MPC had driver figures in the 1928 Lincoln , one guy standing . The Revell Club de mer had a driver as did the Futura As I recall, AMT had Mr. T in the GMC A Team van too

    I wnt to a Richmond Va Ollies and was disapointed as it was the same TIRED stuff from Linburg as they have been trying to pawn off now for a few years .
  5. Eshaver added a post in a topic 1936 revell ford coupe convertible   

    First , Monogram's 1936 Ford was a Convertible . AMT's 1936 was a ROADSTER!!!! Uh gang , they were two DIFFERENT body styles . Roadsters had acetate curtains . Convertibles had ROLL UP Windows .

    Here we go !

    Model 68  Body 720 3 Window coupe
    Model 68 Body 700 2 door sedan
    Model 68 Body 760 2 door Club cabriolet , ( Convertible )
    Model 68 Body 720 Body 5 Window coupe ( Dick Tracy edition )
    Model 68 Body 750 Ford Phaeton touring Convertible
    Model 68 Body 4 door sedan
    Model 68 Body Body 700 ( Trunkback sedan) 

    I hope this helps educate some of you out there as I am one of the writers for the early Ford club and yes , I own a 1953 Ford Panel truck and it still runs a V- 8 Flat head

    The vinyl compounds we knew in 1960  area FAR CRY from the ones we have in kits today . In fact , I would venture to say the Hard vinyl we had then was obsolete by about 1980 or so .

    Very nicely done examples !!!! Good luck on your show .
  8. Eshaver added a post in a topic New from Airtrax! 1941 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe   

    I dunno bout y'all but Monogram's 1941 Lincoln has become sorta hard to find .... I would like to do one of these as coupes and sedans were much more prevalent than a convertible during this era .

    Nick, thank you for that update !
  10. Eshaver added a post in a topic AMT Customizing Boat 3'n1   

    I have one from their first re issue . I'd like to have one more so I can do both a stock and a drag boat .

    AJ , I thought Chuck Most bought all the Hudson kits to do his various versions found in Michigan wrecking yards ....
  12. Eshaver added a post in a topic Moebius - Now that the Comet is out, What's Next   

    Studebakers , Buicks , Oldsmobiles , even Cadillacs  As for light duty trucks , I'm still wanting a 1939 Studebaker express truck ....
  13. Eshaver added a post in a topic I've got a decent stash of kits, anyone have any review requests?   

    Mike , I'm referring to the AMT 1960 Chevrolet Apache SWB kit that was first released about 1998. A "Custom " truck was subsequently released soon afterwards with a custom grille . The last "Accurate " Pinch waist " Chevrolet truck was an Annual and that was about 1963 .

    I saw where you have the "New Tool " Chevrolet Apache PU . Long story short , I was severely disappointed in what I saw when I opened the box . The 235 Six was the only redeeming feature for me I'll eventually find a 60-62 Annual that dosen't command a museum price
  15. Eshaver added a post in a topic FURIOUS   

    Kevin , the first should have been the last . I work in the movie business as a Prop master and rental agent . There too, I once lived in Hollywood and after you see beyond the "Glitz " , it's a nice city with over priced real estate , too much crime and people too full of themselves ....
