  1. Thanks, gents. Stifling or stiffening or reinforcement ribs. I was probably trying to remember "stiffening ribs".
  2. What are the ridges in the floor pan called? For the life of me I can't remember.
  3. 1/32 Aurora

    Or with firecrackers.
  4. 1930 Ford Altered

    Was the driver the old Revell slot car "Smiley"?
  5. Slant 6 cross ram

    Uhhhh, yeah, okay, I guess ...
  6. What makes these "Radial" ?

    Maybe the word should have been "radical".
  7. Another track closing

    But everything else stays ... http://www.mycentraljersey.com/story/news/local/middlesex-county/2018/01/17/raceway-park-discontinues-drag-racing-events/1039555001/
  8. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    As long as the retailer re-orders those kits because of those sales.
  9. Blob undercarriage or separate parts?
  10. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Ohhhhhhhh yeah to both, only make 'em 2-in-1 kits (none of this 'later' thinking!). Also: a mid-'60s Kent Fuller/Don Long-type digger with a blown 392 and, as an option, an Enderle injected SBC for the junior fuel fans.
  11. AMT Future Releases Interesting

    The Fireball 500 Barracuda was purpose-built by George Barris for the stock car racing movie Fireball 500. There was absolutely no drag racing influence, let alone topless match-race car.
  12. I'd love to have the basement all to myself, but the cats would sit at the closed door and cry to be let down stairs. They also did this at three o'clock in the morning. It got so bad that I cut a "kitty door" into the basement door. And yes, they pilfer. My wife once found my #11 X-Acto knife in the kitchen.
  13. What would YOU like to see as a model

    I second the Cheetah, but throw in some extras so's I can make it a /MSP. And it would be nice to get some of the American 'off' brands. Early iron anything other than a Ford (there are plenty of those). GMs, Mopars, Mercs from the '50s. Anything from the '60s - as long as it isn't a re-issued promo with the blob undercarriage and molded-in seats. Hey, howzabout a Javelin? Make 'em all 2-in-1s, too. Street/strip/oval/custom or bone stock for those poor rivet counters. Hey, I can dream, can't I? Oh, and all 1/25 (my fantasy, my rules).
  14. Terrible Box Art

    Reminds me of the Christmas when I got TWELVE models! Everyone a 49ยข Pyro 1/32 (more-or-less) kit. I also remember getting a handful of Palmer kits on a different Christmas. But the thought was there.
