  1. Story of Jo Han models.

    That rear quarter is 73ish, but the front of the car is 72 it seems.
  2. whats the rarest model you own and did you build it?

    I have built the enclosed roof version. Yes it's a bear to build, especially the interior. I had to scratch build interior door panels as the kit had none. I also have the open roof car in the stash as well as another version by another company molded in red. On my build I filled in all the holes on the chassis to make it more accurate. I used 1/20th scale GMC pick up Lindberg kit for the front and rear suspension. It just looked better to me. Supposedly the engine is a copy of Chrysler's poly sphere 318 from the fifties. The chrome lump of an engine in the kit really did not look like anything so I used the big Ford engine from the Otaki T-Bird kit and removed the FORD script off the valve covers and painted it an industrial blue/grey color. I would someday like to redo the whole kit.
  3. Car parts as props in Star Trek: First Contact

    and 1/12th scale Ferrari engine blocks.
  4. Buddy Baker's 1980 Oldsmobile 442 in 1/25th scale.

    I bought one today. That interior floor pan has me scratching my head. Looks like it came from a toy.

  6. Old Hobby Shop Photos

    His brother had the store on 82nd and National. Talk about a grouch and a paranoiac. He always went on about how other hobby shop owners were out to get him and ruin his business.
  7. No, it wasn't. The US did see the Subaru 360 however which falls into the same class I think. Malcom Bricklin of the Bricklin car imported and sold these.

    Different in Milwaukee than in Brooklyn I guess. We never got shooed away. They knew we would be back on allowance day.
  9. There's something wrong with Baby.

    You are a good son to help your mother take care of her car.
  10. Pet peeve of mine!

    My pet peave? Modellers who paint the headlights with a white/gray wash. It does not look like any head light I've ever seen. I know the chrome plated headlight isn't all that realistic but it is still better than white paint. Drop a bit of Elmer's clear glue on the head light if you want to add realism.
  11. || Beaumonts : Anyone Build One ? ||

    Model Car Garage I think had a 69 Chevelle photoetch set that included the bits needed to make a Beaumont including script and grille pieces. One just needed to scratch the tail lamps and source a GTO or LeMans/Tempest dash board. I'm still after all these years working on a 68 version. I'm just lazy I guess.
  12. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    True, but they did not do any favors to Chrysler.
  13. Just a few thoughts on scale

    Plus the fitment of the battery box in said model tanks
  14. Just a few thoughts on scale

    It's HO. Made for use on HO train layouts or on OO (British) layouts at 1/78 scale. Slot cars (Aurora) were in the beginning at 1/87th but the sizes grew to accommodate larger motors (TycoPro) and chassis. All the way to 1/64th scale. And those bigger cars are not necessarily "in scale" but tweaked to fit over the chassis.
  15. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    Oh, you mean like Daimler Benz did to Chrysler?
