    I normaly deal with a lhs about 30 min drive. Glued the tailgate shut on a new Moebus ford and wanted another to try something different. I went to our Hobby lobby about ten minutes away. A while back they had one aisle of models and some diecasts on both sides with supplies in the next aisle on one side. Now they have kits on one side and supplies on the other of one aisle. Do Not carry Moebus and when I asked if they did was told they were fazing models out for not selling. Their located in Niles, Ohio.

    Trans types, auto or stick , single or multiple carbs, bench or buckets would be a great start. I think alot of us build models of cars weve known or seen. This would help.

    You'll need a short shaft transmission, I think the Little Red Wagon has one. The duster has a long shaft. Good Luck and nice job so far.

    When I started building 1/25 was the way to go because of parts interchange. You could swap engines from all AMT 40 fords,32's,36's etc.

    I think there was an article about him and his store I read somewhere. Thats too bad of his passing.

  8. BubbaBrown added a post in a topic How much are you willing to pay ?   

    I don't mind springing for a brand new kit. But paying the new rates on kits that have been issued to infinity over and over and over I refuse. So I hope you hear ne Round 2. and revell.

    Back in the 70's there was a car named Preparation H , like the medicine. It used a 6 and ran very very well. I don't know if any info is available.
  13. BubbaBrown added a post in a topic What percentage of kits that you start get finished?   

    O%, I work on them till they make me mad, then they go up on the shelf and I dig one of several hundred out and go back to work. Losing interest and waiting for paint probably stalls more except for BMF.

    Toxic or not you better have a spray booth to paint in or dust, paint everywhere.
