    I think it's a 2012 Corvette kit that will get built someday

    Dan, I remember those AMT Silhouette kits with the Worlds fair art work . That was about the time I went in the hospital in 2010

    Big Lots in the Richmond Virginia - Petersburg area seldom sees plastic model kits any longer

    SPECTACULAR job of the photographs and the over all revue !
  5. Eshaver added a post in a topic AMT 1/25 '64 Chevy Impala   

    I have unbuilt examples of BOTH kits . The AMT Impala was re worked years back as the Original had working Headlamps and tail lights . Now in 1964, this was TECH CITY!!!!!!!!!!! Building this kit in 1964 was challenging only in regards to the battery box sandwiched between the body and the quarter panels . The subsequent re issues , continued with some of the Advanced customizing parts removed and was a decent replica of a 64 Impala until the Revell piece came out . The Revell Impala has an opening trunk, nice chassis detail and makes for a very nice stocker . Revell did several re issues as "Low Riders " too. You need to watch these if you want a stocker . AMT retained a lot of the NASCAR stock car racing pieces . you need to determine if this is your preferred route . Both depict the 409 engine so that is off the table .

    I stopped reading SAE years ago . The critics who do the kit revues are too busy running down a DECADES old re issue to bother with how it makes the overall story look . I can't put credibility into a HACK job ................................

    In the day , I owned the Art Forms Design company in Houston . My company had design patents on several drink holders and table designs . Dodge vans were a huge chunk of revenue for us .

    This practice has been going on for years . I remember a site known as Model Junk yard

    Harry, I as a Renegade Libertarian would NEVER argue that point sir . I was simply pointing up YOUR OWN words from the "Rants and Raves Days , NO Politics . I'm a lot of things and yes , I tend to cause problems in Political arenas as a volunteer lobbyist

  11. Eshaver added a post in a topic How did we manage to survive?   

    Harry, YOU ignited a political "Firestorm " here and I will NOT take the bait as any comment I make will be deemed "Political " . if you want to know my stance , look me up on Face Book .

    Here is a model of a Pure Oil station built in Richmond Virginia in 1921 known as the Triangle Filling station and featuring the A M T 1927 Ford Model T Touring and a M P C 1928 Lincoln Touring

  14. Eshaver added a post in a topic Fotki or Photobucket?   

    Photobucket allows me to enhance a LOT of vintage photos . I'm in the exhibit business and most times , I'm very lucky to find old shots from the early 1920's that show details Building permits do not .
