    Ok,fellow modelers,correct me if I'm wrong but this looks to have been a simple task of taking the two different style scoops and the slicks from the two '64 Dodge kits,tooling the mags,and doing up the decal sheet.Otherwise it's the '64 Plymouth kit.What would have taken 6 years for this kit to show up?
    I too saw that $39.99 price at Hobby Lobby.Ouch.
    When the Hobby Lobby stores around here do a clearance the kits are priced at 40% off-just like having a coupon.

    I recall that there was an issue a few years ago about some Revell kits crazing when paint was applied because of a change in the plastic.Could this be the case here?

    There are some differences at the front between the new tool '56 & '57 Revell kits and the new tool AMT chassis mainly around the engine compartment area.Nothing unchangeable, just a difference in the philosophies of the two companies of what part got molded with what other part.

    I believe that Steve is coming to our November show here in Metro Detroit.
  5. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Old Revell "H" part # kits   

    I built the '56 sedan as a kid and had no real problems with it.Sometimes being young and dumb has advantages!I still have the model in my stash though pieces have graduallly fallen off of it.Also in my stash I have a couple of the '55 hardtops built way back by a buddy and as I recall the opening panels fit well.I also have unbuilt 70s versions of the '55 and the '57 Nomad in my stash.
  6. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Cars in song   

    The Downriver club did this theme last year.Leave it to me to come up with a stumper(heh heh).I built a stock AMT '29 Model A roadster.Nobody guessed the name of the song(not even a guy who's in the Model A Restorer's club).

  7. ZTony8 added a post in a topic How About A Call Out For The Old Time Hobby Shops   

    We are lucky here in Metro Detroit.We have several non chain hobby shops still in business.Model Cave in Ypsilanti and Great Lakes in Sterling Heights probably have the most stock of any of them.

    Looks great ! BTW it's a Team McLaren car,not a Penske.
  9. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Is it worth anything?   

    This should be an easy kit to build.Buy it,fill up your bath tub,empty parts from box into tub,model is done.
  10. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Got a new distraction   

    These are affectionately known as " Saabarus" .
  11. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Can anyone 'splane this ?   

    The toy cars are metal, the real cars are plastic-I've chuckled about this for years.
  12. ZTony8 added a post in a topic An apology   

    If someone can't tell that the '62 Chevy in your picture is a model then maybe they need glasses more than I need mine.This isn't a knock on your model or the picture.The indicators are there if one just studies the photograph.Keep on composing and posting your shots the way you desire.I like them the way they're presented.
  13. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Candy Colors: Looking for advice or how to tips   

    If you're considering doing a candy red car use copper,not gold or silver, for a base color.It intensifies the red(see the real Mazmanian Willys gasser).

  15. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Question about tape   

    Be careful about using the blue low tack 3M tape.It states on the inside surface of the roll not to use it with lacquers.
