  1. Gibson died a few years back, and now these engine kits are in the Hen's Teeth section of your local supermarket.
  2. I love straight OHV sixes (and eights). IMHO, the sanctioning bodies missed the boat by not having specific classes for them. Good job.
  3. The '60s and '70s, too. The kits were based on the promos that they made for the car companies.
  4. I don't know what you guys are talking about. I had no problem with the one I built back in the day. A single firecracker took care of everything as nice as you please.
  5. Wasn't sure what your question was going to be. I was going to say not to hold on to the spinning end, you won't get much accomplished.

  7. No, no, that's constructive criticism. It's been decided.
  8. "So lately I have seen some models posted in the Finished section that were obviously flawed but were given praise as though they could win at a model contest." Could you post a link to one of these flawed models and explain what the flaw is?
  9. I'd say you'd need a shore hardness up around 60, maybe even 70. You can color them with Tempera black paint powder. That's what I did when I was making slot car tires (I used Shore 30 and that was even too soft for slicks). IIRC Smooth-On has a "starter" kit. You get a pound of the stuff, so you can make plenty of mistakes.
  10. As per Richard Bartrop in the Tempest Kit topic: "The Tempest is one I would like to see get the Moebius treatment. Too bad they've been told by their new owner to get out of the model car business." Say what?
  11. BTW: what year was this frame used?
