  1. I and other members of D.A.A.M. plan on attending.
  2. There's the one in Taylor.
  3. I stopped at one of the local Hobby Lobby stores today and scored an unexpected deal. I picked up a Corvette C7R kit marked at $26.99 and with my 40% off coupon I figured it would be $16.19 plus tax. The cashier scanned it and it came up as $16.99 ( and not as a mark down.) so with the tax and my coupon it came to $10.80. My lucky day!
  4. Save yourself the time of getting the pink primer if you don't already have it. I tried Tamiya TS-49 over both their white and pink primer and it made no difference in appearance at all! I then tried their clear red over the pink primer and it came out just like TS-49.
  5. I was told that PPG has bought the Testor paint line from Rustoleum. Anyone else hear about this?
  6. With all this revenue rolling in from these Coke issue kits, you'd think that there would be money to tool up a new kit or two.
  7. I got an AMT 3 in 1 Customizing boat and 5 cans of paint at Hobby Lobby and a Tamiya Toyota Group C racer at a local hobby shop. Tamiya really missed the boat with this kit. It's labeled as an 88C LeMans car but it's really an 89 C-V that ran at several places ( but not LeMans) with the style of rear bodywork that's in the kit.
  8. TS-56 is really Repsol orange but it's so close to correct that if you weren't told it was different you wouldn't know it.
  9. Today I went to the two closest Hobby Lobby stores to me. One store had a few kits marked down( '23 T Coke truck, Prowler, and old tool stock version '57 Chevy) and may have more earlier for there were a few empty spots on the shelves. The other store had no kits marked down.
  10. At the Downriver Club meeting last Friday one of the members told us about a product that he found. it's called Crud Cutter Graffiti Remover (gel) and judging by the bodies he brought it works great and even takes off flat black! He found his bottle at Ollies. I found a non gel version at Home Depot for about $8 for 22 ounces.
  11. It's based on the new tool '70 Barracuda/ Sox & Martin kit. I got one last Friday (6-14-19). The Hemi valve covers and dual carbs are left in the AAR kit from the earlier releases but the 4 tires are still all of equal size (unlike the real car's staggered sizes). Maybe the AMT parts pack tires will work (?).
  12. No Porsche tractors at the two closest Hobby Lobby stores to me. No space indicated on the shelves for them either.
  13. The Dino Spyder in Regular series uses a different body mold than the one in the Enthusiast series. It has a separate front lower body that has to be installed after the chassis and body are mated due to the way the underbody is molded. That makes for a problem as it leaves a seam where the pieces mate that isn't on the real car.
