    What company (a couple years ago) was to reissue the 73-75 Olds Cutlass (JoHan).
    Still wishing this will occur.

    Blunc,
    Actually, Gregg was in attendance. The managing editor Darryl did take photos. Along with a MCM staff member also taking photos. So, something unusual this time.

    3-d printing is a great process. Note, 3-d printing is just that - 'printing'. Layers and layers and layers.......................on top of layers to create the object. 
    These layers are visible and noticeable to the touch. This means that before a 3-d part can be used for resin casting or as a finished product (ready for primer and paint) all parts need to be sanded SMOOTH. Imagine sanding all the layers lines on a 1/25 scale bumper/grill for a 1963 Chevy Impala !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  That will be a fun process getting inside all the mesh grill patterns to create a smooth finish without any damage.............. A model car body will be a much easier task. These are the negative aspects of 3-D printing. Maybe someday the 3-d creators of the printers will resolve a way to eliminate the layers edges. Until then, prepare to do a lot of sanding and finish work. 
    Any 3-d experts out there? Please respond with your expert experiences and advice to us. 
    Thanks.

    Viewed a copy of the Contest annual 2016 today (contest shows from 2015) and was disappointed.
    Not in the quality of all the great models pictured, but 6 less pages in this issue (2015 had 84 pages). 
    Mainly disappointed that no pictures from the 2015 LLC NNL contest (Lower Left Coast - Carlsbad, Ca -  August, 2015).
    I attended the show last year and all the contest model cars were amazing.
    MCM, why was the LLC NNL omitted from the 2016 issue?
    Thanks.

    Rickcaps55,
    Thank You for the 'link' to Missinglink. Just received the Maverick/Torino dog dish hubcaps/trim rings. Absolutely perfect.
    They are not plated, but I will paint them a brushed aluminum and BMF the trim rings.
    Emailed several times with Kevin @ ML. Great business and communications. 
    Thanks.
