  1. Not dead yet. I hope to share more builds soon.
  2. Thanks Marvin! 1. The Turbo T/A is a very rare 1/16 scale MPC "Trophy Series" kit. The kit actually still had the original price tag on it from Allied Hobbies around 1987 or so! It had working lights, which were also original. AFAIK, that kit has never been reissued. 2. I had to make those wheels. I drew them up, had them 3d printed, and then cast copies and sent them off to chrome. Expensive, but worth it IMO.
  3. Just adding my `81, and hoping to see more F-bodies!
  4. Thanks Echo! I definitely have my eyes on your decals. I am currently building the Revell 1/24 kit, but I also have an old MPC promo sitting here beside me. Are your decals designed for the 1/25 AMT and MPC kits? It appears the wheelbase difference between the two is about 3/16" between the two kits. I am thinking, though that is a considerable difference, that the "IROC-Z" door decals will probably be close enough for both scales. I will be needing silver ones btw. Will the anniversary version be in silver and black? Thanks.
  5. Do you remember what section of Hobby Lobby? I am not seeing them at my local one. I did buy a set like this several years ago, but they didn`t have the squadron name on them. I wonder if they were the same bits, or if another manufacturer placed their bits in the same container and repackaged them? Mine got dull pretty quickly. Are you happy with yours?
  6. I am looking for center bolt valve covers like are used in the 1985-1992 Camaros and Firebirds. I believe the Revell Impala kit has some that are very close. I`ve also read the AMT Silverado kits also have them, though they look slightly different. Reference pic below. Thanks!
  7. Perfect. Thanks Matthijs. It looks like it could be 5 or 6 weeks for shipping. Has that been your experience?
  8. I am looking for Iroc Z decals in 1/24 scale. I want to avoid spending the $$ for any of the MPC kits, and I need them in Silver/Black which I don`t think has been done. Has anyone seen these available anywhere, or know of someone who would be willing to make them? Thanks.
  9. I am looking for any of the iterations of the Revell `85 Camaro. I mainly just need the body and the interior, but a whole kit would work as well. I have a bunch of stuff from the `80s (especially Corvettes) to trade.
  10. Very nice! And that green really looks like rallye green.
  11. I really hope they release the Turbo "Blackbird" version of this kit, or the trophy series one. They have some issues, but they build up decently with some work.
  12. Very nice! I like the turbo T/A`s. Is that the re-release of the MPC kit?
  13. Very nice! I didn`t think much could be done with those old MPC BFG`s, but they look really good on this! What kit are they from?
