  1. How Many CAR Scenes Filmed in the LA River?

    I spent my first 10 years within earshot of LAX. I recall that if it rained for 3 days in a row they closed the local schools. You have to recall that primarily the LA Basin is just that: a bowl. Water comes in and there aren't a lot of places for it to go. Never had an urge to return or even to visit. Except for the Peterson Museum...
  2. Modelhaus Offical Update/SA

    Case in point: Fisher Models. I've got a FEW of the ones he carried but never pulled the trigger on the Cunningham, Chaparral 2F, long tailed Ferrari 512. There appears to have been a successful crowdfund to help Paul Fisher carry on but who knows at this point.
  3. How Many CAR Scenes Filmed in the LA River?

    In a previous life I provided traffic control for numerous movies/commercials. Very common for logos to be covered, even to the extent of covering "Ford" and "Dodge" logos on hubcaps.
  4. Monogram Dale Jarrett Mac Tools Thunderbird I won as a door prize at NLL West a couple of years ago. Under card race series, unknown race results, driver I only paid attention in passing. At best I'll part it out. Not sure even of that.
  5. What did you see on the road today?

    Oregon plates-probably suffering from sunstroke.
  6. Now I think this is silly

    Inspired by this? https://www.carthrottle.com/post/the-300sl-powered-blue-wonder/ (Ooops, nevermind. Someone else with a quirky knowledge of old transporters beat me to it.)
  7. Anyone Know If These Monogram 1/24 Molds Are Still Around?

    I'm really going to keep an eye on Atlantis. They seem to know their market. This flyer (warning: not car related) has every appearance of the classic John Steel boxtops from the classic Revell era. https://www.atlantis-models.com/pressreleases/H369USSIowa.pdf
  8. Revell 1968 GTO

    Ah, dag nabbit.
  9. Time for a look at some different Pickup truck offerings ?

    Is it impolite to mention that a model of any current pickup is missing. There's a Raptor snap kit and after that you have to go to the 1999 (?) Silverado, the Meng F350 and the 1997 F150. And what's the most recent Ram Pickup, the 1995 (or so) Revell show truck w/Viper engine? Pickups are the largest selling vehicles in the US but are unrepresented. And let's not talk about Explorers, Tahoes, etc.
  10. Revell 1968 GTO

    There is one resin option for a stock hood by Missing Link. (No connection to seller) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Resin-25-scale-1968-70-Pontiac-GTO-hood-w-underside-detail-from-Missing-Link/352474531990?hash=item52111e8896:g:YWUAAOSwTmJatSJP I purchased one and standing alone it looks good. My kit is buried in the stash so I haven't test fitted it.
  11. FYI: there are two Porsche 904 kits that have been released under the Revell/Monogram nameplate in 1/24 and 1/25 scale. The 1/24 kit which is basically a slot car body/curbside. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/176383-monogram-pc127-porsche-904 The 1/25th kit which (I believe) originally was the old Aurora kit and has the engine/interior etc. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/176395-monogram-2954-porsche-904 I've got both but, naturally, I haven't built either.
  12. Porsche 964 RSR Driven Only 6 miles

    No cup holders! This deal if OFF!
  13. Good Model Shop in California

    +1 on the Petersen. I went there in January and they had a magnificent display of low riders next to a gallery of vintage Bugattis, while at the same time there was about $100 million in Ferrari race cars on the other side of the 2nd floor from very famous movie cars. And to top it all, a 1 to 1 Lightning McQueen. AND about 75 feet away was Steve McQueen's Jaguar XK-SS. I believe there will be a display of Porsche racing cars when you're in "The Southland".
