    Costs a lot of $$ to chop tops

    Tilt Marui did one ages ago, really nice, I have one. Motorized, but you can't see much on real car. They did some other variants too, very nice 935-77. Also did a CSL 3.5 like Stuck's, all hard to find now. Bodies are awesome. Happy about this one. Wonder about the Tilt Marui tools, they had gorgeous shiny finishes, did best Pantera ever, plus 312T, M23B, and Tyrell 007

    Give it to a kid, a young modeler, or put it in parts stash. If it's mostly buildable, pass it forward. If not, part iit out or sell it for $5-6. 
  4. keyser added a post in a topic New reissue AMT '57 Fairlane questions   

    The diamond buckets are crude, as is the console. I like the bolstered seats, which are used in builds today. Less than 1% of people under 30 would look at the old trash and like it. Wheels are dated, as are the unchromed rim Moons. So what, you don't have a parts stash? Give the stuff you don't like away to young modelers rather than having to trade every nickel out of a kit.  I swear, some of you guys are the most intolerant people I've known. Lighten up, it's a kit. Old issues are everywhere, even original issues are thick on the ground. Spend $ and get over it. Get off my lawn.

    They're trying out round boxes. The delay was retooling kit so the trees would fit in the new boxes.

    FTW. Models far more common than models. Decent live pics of races though. Takes awhile to find.

    Don't forget the working headlight doors on the 63 only convertible.

    Ooops. See, I'm not political, it starts handbag fights. 
    Back to the 30 Ford coupe drama and great memes

    Now it's "alternative facts"
    Not politics, more "Manufacturing news to fit a conspiracy theory about a tool" 
    Suspect like me, Bill not particularly political.

    RIP.
    Colon cancer is dreadful. Harry was on same chemo as my wife was. Side effects were killing him faster than the cancer last I checked on the curmudgeon. 
    Colon cancer kills 70% of victims in first year. 5 year survival is 8%.
    Please get checked.

    Yep. If so, how are they continuing to release kits, magic? 
    The Mint tools were seized for a criminal case associated with the tool company. No idea what, but seizure is common in tax and criminal cases. Caught in middle? Tough. China shoots people for crimes, not a bad idea, fewer repeat offenders. Car I sold to Netherlands was caught up in a case for 13 years. I was paid prior, but it sat in a warehouse entire length of case. Needed complete restoration at end, was pretty fresh when confiscated. 
    Stuff happens every day in business. It's not ours to know. Save it for story time not a cover up or conspiracy. Frigging drama. Plenty of real drama in life. Try it.

    Tom, anti Chiiiina. So, Cheetos bags. Maybe a forklift caravan? 
    We should all buy cases of other kits hoping there's a swarm of lousy forklift drivers out there. We'll make tens of dollars 
    Knowing how fun insurance claims on international basis, and time to repair a tool properly, I'm confident it should get relaunched reasonably soon. Just because it's broken doesn't mean you stop paying for it. They want it blowing kits out so it'll pay for itself. So wait, hope, be happy we got a nice tool in first place, and buy them at regular price from Revell.
