  1. Callaway Corvette

    While I appreciate the majority of current race cars, the term that comes up most is the "brutalism" of them. I so much prefer the smooth and organic lines of the 50's and 60's cars. I'll even go so far as to say I like the lines of the Ferrari F40 (Enzo's last effort) far more than the F50 and follow-ons. Yes, I am old. And yes, I'd buy a kit of the Callaway (most likely it will be a resin conversion when/if offered). It will go with my C5R/C6R/C7R kits along with my upcoming purchase of the Ford GT Le Mans edition when it comes out.
  2. Issue #205

    Got mine yesterday. Good work and thanks for your efforts.
  3. I need M & S Hobbies' E-Mail and contact information

    I will add my vote to Marc being a really great guy to do business with. A couple of times he's even made trade deals with me at shows. Truly one of the good guys. Good prices and great selection.
  4. Can't have a Cobra . . .

    Another nice addition is this one: https://www.amazon.com/Shelby-American-Racing-History-Friedman/dp/0760303096/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1519672933&sr=8-1&keywords=shelby+american+racing+history Nice detailed overview of Cobras, Sunbeam Tigers, prototypes, Trans Am efforts. I've reached the point where I have to touch any new volume to decide whether to add it to the pile or not. There's a lot of overlap between the various books. With just Cobra, Shelby, and GT40 I think I've got close to 30 soft cover and hard cover books.
  5. Revell's 68 Mustang GT 2n1 kit

    Somebody (Perry's Resin?) had decals for this one and I think it was made for the AMT kit. Always thought it would be a good counterbalance to the all white factory Cobras.
  6. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Any Ferrari with Lusso or GTB in the title.
  7. Someone say "D" Type ?

    I've got the predecessor to the Fisher D Type (Dragon Model Works) and I've got to improve my resin mojo before I attempt it. Its a bit rough. I also have the Revell XK-SS kit and was considering doing it as an Ecurie Ecosse racer but am now thinking of doing an homage to Steve McQueen after having seen his original last month at the Petersen Museum in LA. That means probably getting a Fisher kit to continue with the Ecosse car. I would almost kill for someone to put out an affordable C-type. I've always liked the lines of that one better than the D.
  8. 2008 Telsa for sale on ebay ...

    "Long life battery, unlikely to need recharging for the foreseeable future."
  9. Keith marks decals?

    While you've have his attention would you ask him to do some late model Mustang stripes?
  10. What did you see on the road today?

    I wore shorts, short sleeved shirt and ankle socks today in Nor Cal. If I need to gloat I call the in-laws in.....Toronto and Cobourg. Yes, it is pricey but I just need to buy a slightly heavier sweatshirt to make it through winter. And one set of tires. To keep this on topic, yesterday I also saw a Citation in rural (affluent!) Marin County. Probably the first in 20 years. 10 minutes later a Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer, again 20 years after the last one I'd seen.
  11. 2019 Mustang Bullitt

  12. 2019 Mustang Bullitt

    Twice, 2001 (above) and 2008. They came in black also. Sorry, Highland Green or nothing.
  13. What did you see on the road today?

    Drove up from LA yesterday. Had to visit a sick aunt. I did take time to go the Petersen Museum. If in LA do NOT miss it. Its not every day you find yourself in a building with probably $200 million in auto hardware, on one floor. Had a 70 years of Ferrari exhibit. 1958 250TR Pontoon Fender, '63 330 LMB, 65 250LM, "Christine", Back To The Future DeLorean, Magnum's 308 GTB, a magnificent Low Rider exhibit....it just goes on and on. At the intersection of Wilshire and S. Fairfax-right outside the museum I first heard then saw this one or very much its mate: even had that gawd-awful satin finish. (There, I said it). I'm pretty certain this is Volvo Woody I saw just north of Santa Barbara, didn't have a surf board but did have a paddle board on the roof rack. And before I forget:
  14. AMT Cobra Racing Team

    Oh so close! The "96" roundels and black stripes get me about 1/2 to one I've wanted to build in worst way. The sponsor logos, driver/mechanic names, and the "Executor" on the rear fenders are all missing, along with the "kidney bean" Halibrands. Patto's Place out of Australia has a set, ALPS printed I believe.
  15. Favorite Movie 2017, which one for you?

    What I (also) enjoyed from Baby Driver was that all the stunts were done without CGI. Early in the chase when the car goes up the incline and makes a violent u-turn to go the wrong way up the freeway ramp, note the lack of pre existing skid marks on the pavement. That tells me (1) the driver did that on the first take or (2) it got cleaned up in post production editing. I prefer to believe (1).
