  1. They go from about $33 to close to $40 depending on the kit. Canadian $ is a bit more. Be aware that some of the kits are re branded Monogram NASCAR models from the 80s. The 70s era cars like the Oldsmobiles are Salvino's own tooling. The new 2022 NASCAR is Salvino's own tooling. All are nicely detailed.
  2. I had thought that the Johan Turbine came earlier, which had a vinyl top as well.
  3. At least you got both body sides. My kit is missing the passenger side
  4. Interesting custom job. I would have kept it all GM instead of the Audi engine. LS all the way.
  5. Nice car. I have that 190 SL kit. Opened the box and the passenger side body panel was not in there. Are you willing to part with the panel?
  6. Hi, just a suggestion on the paint. NAPA sometimes will have the exact color mixed for you in a spray bomb. Get your paint code from Chrysler paint lists online and go to NAPA with it. It might cost you about 30 bux for the paint. You can get single or two stage paint. I recommend single so you won't have to clear coat it. I know my local NAPA can do it. They have an outside supplier make the spray bombs. Practice a bit with it to learn how it lays. Tamiya TS91 green is very close...a bit darker but not much.
  7. I just got my #213 issue. I have noticed that this was my last subscription. I had thought I had already re subscribed and expected to see the new sub noted. Did I actually subscribe or did I imagine I did and forgot to renew?

  9. Mine did too, but it gave off a weird smell when I opened the baggie. Never smelled that before.
  10. Here is what the 50 looked like. Note the weird wheel openings
  11. I never seen this car although l live 15 miles away from the town it's in. Hope to see it.
  12. Definately one of my favorite Buicks. I owned two real 64 LeSabres. One a 4 door hardtop, the other a 4 door sedan. I bought both of them for $50. Drove the hardtop from Wisconsin to Santa Barbara California. I then drove it around for a year or two and finally gave it away to a person who needed it as I had another car by then.
  13. Did not know this even existed until I saw it at Focus Hobby in Fond Du Lac. Was 20 bucks. That's pretty cheap considering what they go for on ebay. Yes, it came home with me. The prepainted body looks pretty good. No drips or mold lines that I could see.
  14. I do currently own a 1980 Seville. I really do like the bustle back styling of it. Mine's a diesel.
  15. Am I the only one who thinks this is a Cylon from Battlestar Galactica?
  16. Milwaukee had their own version...TV Lennie. Could not find a commercial where he gave away bicycles with a purchase. He would yell Get a bike get a bike get a bike
  17. Got the Moebius 70 Ford Pick up today for it's inline six engine to put in my Bronco build.
  18. I have an Opel Admiral kit from ICM and a resin commercial Ford truck cab from a small maker. Both great quality. Hope our Ukrainian friends are going to survive this. Huge Ukrainian community in my home town of Milwaukee. Ukrainian churches, Red Cross are excepting donations to help the cause with medical and food supply and other things they may need. One of our members of the forum (Tor Henning) was in Ukraine traveling with his girl friend visiting her family when all this broke out. They made it out crossing into Poland...they are safe.
  19. Just another version of a chrome finish marker. I don't think theses are as shiny as Molotow (close) but they are a bit more durable. After 15 minutes, I could touch the surface without dulling it.
  20. Nice to see an early build of yours.
