  1. 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.
  2. Porsche 964 RSR Driven Only 6 miles

    No cup holders! This deal if OFF!
  3. 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".
  4. What did you see on the road today?

  5. revell gt350r decals

    Operating on the theory that you can't have too much info: https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/AM14/Amelia-Island/lots/r103-1965-shelby-mustang-gt350-r/181814
  6. revell gt350r decals

    FYI: the decal stripes in that kit are an dull blue/grey and not even close to the Guardsman Blue original color. They might be an aid in paint masking though. Your muse was used to win the 1965 SCCA B Production title, not always with the #3. Try Googling GT350 5R213 for more photos.
  7. revell gt350r decals

    There is a need for an aftermarket decal set and I've heard of at least one but it appears to be "vaporware". Nonetheless, there is this alternative with an actual racing history. http://www.v-r-m.com/vrm-003---mustang-gt350r.html and a few pictures from the race: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/44191640076742499/?lp=true
  8. Your Favorite or Interesting Race Car Livery

    I admit a preference to old school design But I'll have a weakness for Champion Porsche
  9. What did you see on the road today?

    This is owned by a 78 year old guy I used to work with. He just got it out of the shop. You can almost see it but the bed is equipped with a custom made wooden truck box and the bed is wood lined. Hard to tell but its actually a deep metallic purple with blue and pink pinstripes. You might note a familiar car in the background. (look at the bottom of the page)
  10. '65 Goat-A-Mino Can Be Yours!

    Always wore an open collared polyester shirt with a vaguely suggestive gold pendant on a chain. Called it his "Italian Good Luck Charm". Did one experience the '70s or just survive them?
  11. What did you see on the road today?

    The top one reminds me of this classic show.
  12. Quick diecast repair question

    I picked up a Danbury Mint 1966 Mustang convertible (complete but without box or certificate-meh) for $2 at a yard sale yesterday. The wind wing was easily reset with white glue. I've got to cut a piece of plastic to replace the "glass" (thinking a piece of plastic packaging) and found that the windshield frame was broken at the bottom left corner. What kind of (clear) glue should I use to fix these things and where to get it?
  13. Details of Singer And Williams' Reworked Porsche 911

    Yeah, yeah. But could you leave it parked in front of a KMart and not get all bent with worry? Could ya? I'll let you know.
  14. What do you miss about classic cars or cars of the past?

    *cough* Chevy Vega *cough* I miss the "character" of the 60's/early 70's cars. Every year's styling was distinct and different. But what I miss in character I don't miss in tuneups, crappy tires, crappy brakes, gas mileage. I wanted a Grabber Blue Mustang since I saw my first one, 1970 Boss 302. I finally have a Grabber Blue Mustang. Infinitely safer, more comfortable, just as stylish. Had I had that 1970 Mustang I would have had 335hp (supposedly) and got 8-10 mpg if I feathered the gas. Now I have 420hp and without trying or thought I get just under 23 mpg. I've seen 29 mpg on a trip from Reno to Bend, OR. 300+ miles, two lane hwy the whole route, kept it below 65mph. I miss character but that's all.
  15. I've been told the Sunny Cobra kit is neither fish nor fowl. It has aspects of the 289 and 427 Cobras all in one package. Oh, and the Fujimi Cobra kit is not a true Cobra. It was referenced off of a kit car, and has a massively oversized windshield frame.
