Hey Bill Big bold type so you can read it. Glad it went well. Cloudy should subside, it's inflammation and re-attaching. Hang in there, stay comfortable, and you'll be down the road. All the best from me and tons of others here. Magnify your screen to read, but rest. Keep us posted. L
Didn't they have some Road Agent bits in them? Engine, some other parts? I thought I'd read that on Dave's board. It'd be great to get some of these back. Moon Mixer was cool. Never showed up in shops when I was kid. Nice build Dave, and whomever built all 5 above. Showrods are great. Glad some people keep pushing
Yessir, the Stingray, the 57 SS, and the Buick Y-job have been completely ignored by resin casters. Andy did the SS way back in the infancy of resin IIRC, and the built up I've seen was gorgeous. I have some other stuff of his, and it's always nice. I have a Mako I set aside as well Bill. Expect you're closer than I to doing something with it, and it's the closest we have. It was painted red and in an Elvis movie too, so double hit. Curbside would be great, or even a resin brick at this point. I've got that P/E set, it should help with both I and II.
Aluminum Foil Deflector Beanie site. Useful how-tos, and fashion tips. http://zapatopi.net/afdb/ Always wondered about the Mayans and the Druids. Kinda missed out on the concept of breeding stock and natural selection.
The original had etched flush gas cap in same spot later issues had a raised hump for a non-flush gas cap. Also, the original issue had Mark IV on either side of hood bulge. The exhausts were full, all the way out the back, square tips. Later issues had side pipes. Seats didn't have molded in seatbelts. Wheels were the turbines with knockoffs. I agree a builder works. Wheels and exhaust most noticeable, sanding the gascap and scribing new flush one is easy. Great looking car. The snap Mako 1 was cool too. The Mint car was the bubbletop shown. The silver car is the 59 Stingray concept that has never been done. THe Mako I was the non-bubble top open car. THen the Mako II is obviously last pic.
Same kits. Same parts. Molded in color in small boxes it seems, and white in big box. Art print, some detail/history booklets, and maybe a display. That's it. Kinda been discussed in past about the 65 GP, the Munster's kits, some others over last few years here.
I've considered spoons for front fenders, and whittling laminated plastic. P.retty far down the list, sadly, but a great looking car. I could live with a brick/curbside if accurate and actually delivered. No way we'll ever see a kit. Pipes are excessive, but so cool. The Hotwheels version is nice.
That is fantastic. Such a great racer. Crushed everything. This and the Stroppe/Denver Bronco are killer versions, scored fenders with rear flares easy, like Hemi Dart. Again, Wow. Stunning build. Thanks to Revell for issuing this truck. Long wait.
The MegaBloks is huge, probably 20" or so done. I'm probably harsh about the RS. Jaded but lucky guy. We love Legos, their F40 and some others are nice. Orange not a fave color, but I'd not seen the camo. Black hides my concerns too. There's a Dragster we have somewhere with some huge rear tires, maybe that would help. Still, closest thing we have. 1:24, Welly did a nice 997.1 RS, and some Chinese company did a 997.2 RS, car not as good as Welly, but graphics nice. The Minichamps 1:43 and the 1:18 are nice, as is the 997.2 RS 4.0. Wish someone would do a kit. Odd that nothing current is out save the 918. 919, 991, 718,... No current BMW save the Revell-Germany E92 M3 DTM. Last M3 was the E36 by Dragon, and the new E30 M3 coming from I forget whom.
