  1. And before any of these ever saw a truck they ALL were brought to the States by a big freight carrying ship from China, BUT I seriously doubt if that will make anyone except a dedicated maritime modeler want to build one.
  2. AMT Trophy Kits Out Now May 2018

    It would be a really pleasant surprise if the drag boat was reissued as a stand alone kit instead of putting it in with another kit.
  3. Nope. As an owner of a '56 Bel-Air sedan I'd have to disagree with you there, the exterior trim is just the cherry on top of a very great ice cream sundae with the fancy nuts and extra flavor abundant in the interior also.😊

    LOL!.that's so bad it shouldn't have even made it through the first proof reader. Even Ray Charles would have noticed that.😂😂
  5. Desirable Reissues

    I'd like to see the Monogram/Revell 1/8 scale motorcycles ALL reissued. BUT we know that's NEVER likely to happen. Even if all the molds still exist and are in usable condition.😕
  6. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    That's a fact, my wife tells me that even though I was retired 17years ago that if I started finishing a few of the to numerous to count kits I have started that if I gave up everything, even sleeping and eating it would probably be into the next century before I came anywhere near close to getting my stash down to where I NEEDED any NEW kits. Notice I said NEEDED, because we all know we WANT everything that strikes our imagination, either because it was something we built way back when, or it's something totally new, or just because we want it, and want it NOW!
  7. Sorry, Not in my book

    I had a a '71 Pinto with Sanderson long tube headers and a 2 1/2" exhaust from the collector to out the back of the Turbo muffler, but to get it to the muffler it had to go under the rear end housing, needless to say that on a good day you had almost two inches of ground clearance. BUT it sure surprised a lot of local V-8 powered cars. Oh yeah, I forgot that it didn't help that the front tires were A50x13's B.F. Goodrich Comp T/A radials.The tire guys hated them because the sidewalls were so shallow and stiff they were almost impossible to mount because they wouldn't stretch.

    We referred to that as the "San Juan Capistrano school of welding".
  9. 1/25 AMT '40 Ford Sedan

    All of the early AMT kits used the same motor mounts and engine swaps were super busy. They were kinda patterned after the Ansen frame mounts that used flathead "biscuits" as the engine mount itself and an adapter for each engine, and one for each different chassis with the biscuit sandwiched between them. The 1971 - 1973 four cylinder Pinto's used almost the same style, and were even a little better since they had a restraining cable through them in case the rubber mount separated. But I digress there.
  10. Mufflers on them noisey 4 bangers ?

    I was in high school when the "jacked up" , gasser look started and remember that one day during lunch a prior student who still had a girlfriend attending our school drove up in the front of the school to pick up his girl in his '66 Fairlane complete with a CAE straight axle and elliptical springs in front and a set of Firestone road racing rain tires out back and the car lifted high enough to clear the rear tires. What was the attention getter was when he walked around, opened the passenger door for his girl and dropped out a rope ladder so she could climb in in her mini skirt without flashing every boy who was looking.
  11. Enamel Testor's paint.

    That's probably not a thick thinner on top, but the clear in the formula that has separated from the color pigments.
  12. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    Still nothing new about the Revell division of Hobbico?
  13. Serious poll ,Model A or Deuce Coupe ?

  14. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    The doors won't fit properly and the hinges will be fiddly to install and not able to support the open door enough to make it look right.
  15. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    I haven't read every post in the thread, but the ones I have read haven't touched on a problem I have worried about. I really hope that one of their larger debts isn't owed to one of the molding companies in China, they have a record of seizing assets of companies that owe them money, and in at least one case the debt was in some doubt but they went forward with seizing all the tooling of a major diecast collectible company from the U.S. and refusing to deal with that company from that point forward and the result was that one of the better automotive diecast collectible companies was put out of the automotive part of their business and as I have seen the tooling sits in a Chinese warehouse rusting away and haven't been used since the disagreement that ended production. I really doubt that any interested company wants to also inherit Hobbico's debt owed for products they have no chance of getting any income from.
