  1. From Scenes’ Facebook page:


    Hello everyone,  as most of you know I've been having some health issues on and off for the past year and a half. The past couple months I've come to the harsh reality that I no longer have the strength and stamina to continue my business as before. I've also lost some of the desire as well.                                               The good news is that ST Supply Co. has acquired Scenes Unlimited complete product line. With plans to add more items in the future, modelers and builders will have a wide selection of quality castings to choose from. I've done business with them for a few years now and have total confidence they will continue to cast high quality resin and rubber parts that all my customer have come to expect. In the coming days and weeks we will be making the transition.                                                                                             I want to sincerely thank all my customer for your patronage and loyalty over the years. You have made this journey and business very rewarding. I greatly appreciate each and every one of you. More details will be forthcoming in the days and weeks ahead.

    I confirmed yesterday the upcoming Ford Bronco reissue has the 1982 trim parts, and that we do not have the earlier grille insert.  The description will be changed to 1982 Ford Bronco.  It will most likely be packaged in one of the vintage box styles but I'm not sure which one yet.  I happen to the like the graphics on the 1980 box, but we'll see.

    Since the Revell-o-gram Bronco is also being rereleased, and it being an '80-'81, it is good that the MPC kit will be an '82+ version.

    The '97-'98 dash was done in the promos. Which is actually incorrect for the dually as the passenger side airbag wasn't required in the 2500 or 3500 and so they just had storage there.

    Also, if you notice the mirrors: those are S-10 units that curiously were used in the promos but only on the C1500 in South America...

    Not sure if the actual trucks were different, but it looks like in the 1998 brochure, the passenger airbags were standard for all trucks starting that year. Also, I forgot that 1997 was the first year they had them available.

    Interesting....the most recent reissue was an '82 w/ the revised grille.  Backdated to the '80 style? 

    Good point, I didn't notice that! The most recent AMT version was actually labeled an '81 (though with the '82+ grille), so I wonder if they will give it the original grille or just leave it the newer one.

    Which one was the '82?

    Looks like the MPC Dust Devil was labeled an '82 by some sellers.

    I think that's what confused me. The box and built models clearly show the 6 bolt wheels, which in the previous generation truck signified 4WD.

    With the GMT800 trucks, they are all 6-lug (other than the 8-lug HD trucks), and the wheels featured in the kit were available on both 2WD and 4WD models.

    I have to agree. This is going to be one heckuva kit.

    I think I'm going to see if I can get my hands on a '22 or '23 brochure and plan out a build. Barring a huge lottery hit or otherwise massive reversal of fortune, I won't be buying a new one (which saddens me), so  I might as well build what I'd want to order.

    Looks like they don't have the '23 brochure yet, but here's the '22 for you!

    Were not very many of these things built, were there? About 1800 of them or so?

    I wonder how many Calypso Coral cars survive?

    They might not have been as popular since as the name states, their only engine option was the 351. I’m sure the Mach 1 numbers are much higher.

  8. I do know Duplicolor doesn’t make that exact color in spray form. However with the way their prices are increasing, you would be better with ordering from a site like automotivetouchup.com since they would have the exact color, and you get a large can for only 20 bucks (compared to like 14 for an 8oz Duplicolor)

    That's a weak argument to me, as someone who's got over 1k kits on shelves.  I can get 4 kits across any given shelf regardless as to the box width (shoe vs. Asian/Euro), but I can stack those long boxes one higher per shelf section because they're much "flatter".  So, I'm actually getting 4 more "long box" kits on a shelf section than shoe box size.  Anybody who's been hoardi...err collecting for long knows the height (or depth) of the U.S. style boxes have grown over the years from the 1980s until now.  I get that a mix and mash of box sizes takes up more space for sure but given that all but 4 companies in the world use long flat boxes, I doubt you're going to convince the world to adapt to "our ways".  

    I was thinking more of the big box stores (like Hobby Lobby) who prefer to stand their kits up on the box side, and if they were the flatter Euro style boxes, then they would need to increase the height between shelves, thus having less shelf space. That's not to say I agree with them, I would prefer the larger/flatter boxes since it means the parts get packaged better.
