  1. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Car song builds ?   

    A few years ago, one of our club's monthly theme's was "Cars in Song". Of course there were the obligatory GTOs and '32 Fords and Chevy 409s. I, being the contrarian that I am, built a stock AMT '29 Model A. The song? "Henry Made a Lady Out of Lizzie". Not even our member who's in the Model A Restorers Club caught it.

    I'd bet that re-using the 6 lug rims was a cost saving move on Revell's part. Most builders would either put the stock wheel covers on the stock steel rims (hiding the lug nuts) or swap the rims for something else. So no need to substitute for 5 lug rims.

    Super Clean is stronger than Purple Power. It works better.
  4. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Toledo Toy Show and NNL is October 10th   

    Jesse ( and others)- You need to make plans to attend our Motor City NNL on November 12th. We'll have well over 200 tables of vendors, The Motor City NNL, slot car drags, and a few real cars on display. See the thread on the show for more details.

    Bring all you can- I'd like to make it a really well populated category( can we top the "long roofs"?). It was a bit of a late choice and hasn't been added to our Facebook page yet ( it was supposed to have been added 3 months ago). So for anybody who plans on attending our show- please bring lots of Ferraris( street and racing ). FORZA!!!

    Watch the next Auto World catalog-It'll have all the kits that Ollie's received with a notation stating '"limited availability". Well, yeah when you dump a large load off to Ollie's that's what happens!

    I'm gonna check out my local Ollie's tomorrow or Friday. When I'm in Hershey next week I'll look around there,too.
  8. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Fujimi Ferrari 288 GTO Variants?   

    Once you've done the Fujimi EM kit you can go to a Gunze Sangyo Ferrari 250 SWB or 250 G.T.O. That one will make your EM kit seem like a snap together.

    Does the flake in the paint look as large in person as it does in the photo?
  11. ZTony8 added a post in a topic AMT 1983 Chevy Camaro Z28 Kit Review   

    I bought the latest version to use as the basis for coming as close as I can to duplicating my car ( an'84 with the H.O engine and 5 speed). The  kit tires are completely wrong for the car- the real cars came with 215/60R15 Goodyear Eagle GTs, not the E78-14(!) things in the kit. The kit's stock rims do scale out to 15 inches. The proper air cleaner and intake manifold are in the Miami Vice Ferrari Daytona kit.
  12. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Curbside models in competition   

    Hmmmm- seems like a well built T-bucket or roadster street rod could clean up in Curbside.
    Interesting point about the undercarriage bits visible on a model. Results would vary dependent on the judge's viewing angle. How low do you go?
  13. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Revell '70 Charger   

    Gabriel Hi-Jackers and Lakewood traction bars- ah, the 70s.
  14. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Chaparral car?   

    The interesting  thing is that for all the different Chapparal versions, C through G, there were only 4 or 5 tubs built. The old ones were just converted to the later versions( unless they were wrecked).
  15. ZTony8 added a post in a topic Hobby Lobby has lost the plot with Vallejo Paint pricing   

    The regular retail price on the Lawman kit was somewhere around $25. Hobby Lobby's price hike was all on their own. So with the 40% off you ended up spending right about retail price.
    On the flip side- if Hobby Lobby pays the same price for the Foose pickup as the regular hobby shops do, then, with the 40% coupon, they make about $ 1.15 per kit. Anyone have any genuine insight as to what HL pays ( no guesses- I can do that)?
