  1. Does anyone have close up reference photos of the real car(s)
  2. Steve it might be cool to do a simple diorama by putting the 3 mag wheels on, using a bumper jack and figure, and the 4th mag wheel on the ground.

  8. link would be helpful thanks. I thought the SS was only available as a real car 2016&17 is the SS and Impala (NASCAR) versions the same?
  9. I never built a NASCAR model and I was wondering how accurate the new Snap kits (for curbside) and Glue kits (for full detail) are. Are they new bodies on chassis from the 90's or new tools? The Fusion has been used for a number of years and I think the SS since 2016. That being said what other cars could be done using aftermarket decals. Thanks for your help.
  10. I've gotten rather frustrated on viewing this message board since changes were made to the site in early 2018. I have a question, when I come to the board I use to see all updated topics since my last visit. Messages under that topic would be displayed if I wanted to view that topic by clicking on it. If not I would be able to scroll past it now every message appears making pages and pages of items that I don't care to read. How do I make new content since my last visit appear as by topic not by message? Thanks.

  12. I got a phone call a few hours ago informing me that one of my very closest friends of the past almost 40 years has passed away. Don Farhni He was my mentor, Big brother, drag racing buddy, fellow prankster, gave me npiration and talked me away from the edge when I got disabled and saw no hope. He was wounded badly in Vietnam in the battle of Dau-Tieng in 1969. He never talked about his injuries or what happened. It took me years to get up the balls to ask him what happened. I watched the man take fistful of drugs at a time, crawl across the floor on his belly to get to the bathroom, drink steak shakes while waiting for new teeth. I believe that Greg will he was a fundamental part of getting Model Cars Magazine a big running start. Don left behind a sister and two brothers Keep them in your prayers Battle for Dau-Tieng, Base, 3Bde,25 ID 22-23 Feb. 1969 http://277arty.net/dautiengbattle69_3.html
