I remember first shopping at Kay-Bee (K-B?) Toys and TRU in NE Ohio almost 30 years ago...in the malls in the Akron-Canton area..there was another chain toy store then that I remember--Child World or a similar name in the Belden Village Mall area of Canton specifically. Though I don't recall ever getting models at them, it was all die cast...over the last 25 years living in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Colorado, Arizona and now back in NE Ohio, I still occasionally went to local TRU, always looking for die cast..
Cool..will be nice to see a modern Jeep kit. The Rubicon 10th Anniversary would be from 2013. Though I'd rather see a current Grand Cherokee, like the Trailhawk, Trackhawk, SRT or 75th Anniversary Edition.
Never seen models in one...the one near me has a good selection of die cast (AutoWorld, M2, Greenlight, Matchbox, Hot Wheels), but nothing I can't find on eBay or online vendors like Discount Model Warehouse.
There has never been a Yukon kitted in any scale. The first generation Tahoe (Chevy version) was made in 1/25th scale by AMT as a snap kit over 20 years ago. I can't recall seeing a die cast Yukon in 1/24th, but there are 1/24th Tahoes and Suburbans of various years out there in die cast.
Been a few times over the last few weeks...though a lot of things I've ordered from Home Depot's website and had delivered, as well as from Amazon and others. I've found some really skilled local home improvement guys for it, though. I'm writing the checks, not doing the work...
I have multiple remodeling projects going on currently in and around my 'new' 1967 split-level house, one of them wrapped up today--new floor tile in the tv room--porcelain tile that resembles destressed barn wood. Love the look. Got to get the furniture arranged, book shelves installed, art on the walls and re-arrange the home theatre equipment. Have a patio roof re-roofing, inside lighting, and shed restoration projects ongoing. More projects before winter include fence repairs, tree pruning, and maybe a new front door.
Walked out my front door a couple hours ago and heard a car start up down the street, classic muscle car rumble...turned and looked to see a gorgeous black w/ red stripes '69 Mustang Mach 1 pulling away from the curb, pulling into a driveway, backing out then driving away...
