  1. Lol Gary. If YOU don’t have a picture, it may not exist. Fun cars.
  2. Also a fave of mine. 53 in blue is great looking car, really nice model. Put that beside your C-type you built ages ago. Polar opposites but great cars.
  3. Didn’t remember backing plates. The 3 locating pins on them seems like a snap kit? Big axle hole, and front side deep, has big bead area “shelf” to keep in tire, maybe push into back of tire? Deep so rear wheels?
  4. Maybe Polar Lights 65 Coronet? Lugs on wheel backs look like them, but look deep. Haven’t looked at that kit in ages but maybe.
  5. You can soak MH and Hiro, others in Blechwite. I’ve wiped down with Purple and Simple Green but I’ve heard too many stories about resin turning to rubbery messes to soak. Purple power can make some older plastic kits brittle as well. Happened to me on a few things I forgot were soaking. Hope Don and Carol healthy and happy.
  6. Great work. They really nailed the lines on this one. That’s a 993 Cabrio https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_993 Much prettier than 964 of 94. Someone here has a really nice 1:1 Adventurine Green coupe. I forget if they posted here or elsewhere. Last air cooled 911, 95-98 in US Kids had a well loved black Maisto a long time ago. Many play miles. Now I need to find another. Thank you for pics. Nice save
  7. 41 60 Special one of prettiest. Had mine for decades I guess. Tiny sag Got these today 720 big probably 1:24 +, didn’t check yet. RS looks close. Mac is Jada, RS is Welly. Needs couple Snake-fu points. 720 needs side markers, no chrome over the windows, couple little things only I'd notice. RS pretty good, Needs Porsche lettering on spoiler top, flatter paint.
  8. Maybe an Elvis refrigerator truck for food? He bulked up late career. Or a Coke BTTF Delorean. Huge collector markets. Buy kit, never build it. Like us, but can't build.
  9. No disrespect to OP. Like a kid asking if we're there yet every 12-15 minutes. Lots of 1:1 info in the early thread. Like having 3 41 Ford threads.

  10. It was completely different Ranchero, they filmed the scrapyard on site, the ranch scene was at studio elsewhere. Same fake load. Didn't know that until I looked it up today.
  11. Yeah, would have been about 7500# adding the gold, another 300-350# for Odd Job. Bad azz airlift springs. Filming they used fake load.
  12. Hey, it can haul 5000# of crushed Lincoln, and lose it's whitewalls between the crush yard and the farm (Goldfinger)
  13. Never enough coffee. You're correct, both the 289 Cobra and 57 Birds had fastbacks. Agree the Cobra wasn't bulbous, mostly glass. Same with Bird. CRS minimal for now No Jag HT out there that I know of other than resin kit of streamliner. We can hope G-Revell XKE roadster that may come based on the new coupe may have one, and make a LTW possible.
