  1. iso info on life cereal cars

    I had these from the 70s. Sold them on eBay. I also remember a magazine article about someone detailing a grand prix car they got as a cereal premium.
  2. Did Anybody Ever Build The Orange Crate? Well, At Least Once....

    I built the blue version way back when. I think I never got the body to tilt up or the grill to tilt forward. The doors opened so that was a win.
  3. Bring Out Your Dead... Long Stalled Models

    This has to be the oldest stalled project I have. It was originally a Revell 31 Delivery built box stock back in the mid 1970s. In the late 70's I channeled the body onto the fenders, added lots of white putty and threw it in the scrap box. I fished it out in the mid 80s and completed the bodywork with and eye towards under body aerodynamics. The chassis was built, then I got stuck on the front suspension. I got that figured out, but it's way back in the line now. The engine exploded when when I dropped it on the garage floor.
  4. Budd Anderson and GT40

    I guess this can go here. It's the J Car Bud Anderson built from the MPC kit that bore his image. I bought it from him several years ago. He was a fun guy to talk to. It's good to see some of his history on other projects.
  5. Where are these tools?

    Hey Joe, Mobius makes the flying sub. They are listed on eBay for a reasonable price.
  6. What do you listen to while you build???

    Jack FM which is generally rock.
  7. I think there was a TD Bulldozer Snap kit too.
  8. Mr. Speed '53 Studebaker

    I've been gathering parts to do the same thing. I'll be watching. I'm sure it going to be on par with your other excellent builds.
  9. What did you see on the road today?

    This rough custom parked out side Goodwill was pretty cool. But riding alongside this guy on our way to work was just awesome.
  10. Buying built kits on line. Is it too much to expect.....

    Thanks for your insights Randy. I think if the seller would have put material under the model it might have saved the axles from snapping.
  11. here's an article on my car

    Ultimately cool, Dave. I been watching your progress. This whole time, I thought it was a cool race car. Wayyyyyyyy bad aZZZZZZ as a street car.
  12. It is too much to expect that a built model will arrive as pictured in the ebay add? For the second time I bough a fairly expensive built model only to have it arrive broken. This time it was the old Monogram chopped 32 coupe, which is mint in the eBay pics. As soon as I won the auction I contacted the seller and asked them pack the model carefully. I said I would pay for additional packaging. No response When the model arrived, it was in the small box with red plastic bags on either side. That box was wrapped in a black plastic bag inside another box. When I carefully lifted it out, I saw both front axels snapped off and a head light knocked off and somehow one of the lenses split. Can I fix it, yes. But I really just wanted to put it on the shelf. I get that shipping models is tricky. Am I expecting too much? Scott
  13. Detail Master Seat Belt article in MCM

    No problem, Len. It's nice to know someone remembered it. I hope it works for you.
  14. Detail Master Seat Belt article in MCM

    I have it in front of me. It has a California Charger FE dragster in the upper right corner and an orange 70 Mach 1 and two Plymouths featured. If you can't find it, let me know. I can scan it for you.
  15. Detail Master Seat Belt article in MCM

    If it is the one with the drawings, it was OCT 2012 issue 171.
