    I have to agree 100 % on this !!!!! I've built both kits  too
  2. Eshaver added a post in a topic The Disappointments of Online Buying   

    Bill, I too have inherited , so to speak a treasure trove of old AMT annuals . Sadly , I have two AMT 1964 Corvettes that are missing parts . I MAY be able to scrap together ONE car if I go on line and by a 63 for the tail lamps , grille and a set of wheels . . Same goes for a 1963 Chevrolet Apache truck . I'm going back on Face Book and offering what I bought in a post concerning several kits and warn the buyers NOT to be too dissapointed .....

    It is indeed the Lincoln "Y" block with the die cast aluminum covers

    Yes indeed Tommy ! I own a 1978 Step side and people are all the time mistaking it for a much older truck too . The big reason for the extended width was that camper shells weren't fitting the Step side beds . Sure a 4 X8 sheet of plywood fits flat , but try to find certain parts to rebuild the real deal with .

    Bill, you're quite correct sir ! See, it wasn't that long ago before my health went south of the equator that I used to be able to re build the old Cast Iron Hydra- Matics and Ford - O- Matics . Of course I also rebuilt Ford Model A and Ford manual gear boxes too . Face it , I'm a dying breed , fooling with Flat head Fords , and dreaming of days of a Dual disc clutch ......

    Gary , I'm having a hard time trying to visualize a 10 speed automatic  myself in an automobile . I have seen what a Detroit Allison looks like in a Ford F-700 with a 3808 Caterpillar .

    Rich, my cousin owns such a tractor . A lot of parts can be had on the 8N- 9N forum

    Dan , I'm NOT married to Agnes. That is the 78 Ford . I have a 53 Ford Panel that is mostly original . Why not come down for a week end visit into Virginia and I'll give you my two hour tour of former Architecturally significant former service stations , ( 1915-1940 ) . I'm told Richmond Virginia has some of the LAST KNOWN examples of some of these service station buildings too....

    Dennis , if it were me , Id go the "Under construction " threads . We should combine forces as I am the one behind the model of the Fish Inn that was in Cour de Adeline Idaho . I'm already being asked to have the Fish Inn on display at the next Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens miniatures show in Richmond Virginia in 2018

    Dennis , as a former boat repair shop owner , I beg you to keep us updated as to this boat build ! I have LONGGGGGGGG wanted to know the origins of this kit as I once had one from 1961

    Doug , I remember this !!!!! Yep, YOU got action ......
  13. Eshaver added a post in a topic Reliable Resin?   

    DON'T DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY - PERIOD !!!!!!!
  14. Eshaver added a post in a topic Re-releases   

    Doug, because I focus on Dioramas , I would buy any of these as kits . Maybe perhaps multiples because the Plymouth and the Pontiac held well in the dioramas I specialize in . The Oldsmobile would be a nice candidate simply because of it being a Great "Beater car " .....

    I guess SOME here can say what they want about the "STOCK " comments I have made . . I still reserve comments over the AMT "Motor City Stocker " kits bringing some OUTRAGEOUS prices . Go ahead , , go price a 1970 Ford Torino , yeah , go ahead ......
