    Exceptional model!  The color seems to underscore the elegance of the car's lines...incredible work!!

    Very sharp!  Like Harry, I like the header caps, especially the one bolt keeping 'em on and out of the way...that's a really nice touch!

    If you're driving between Salt Lake and Denver, and you pass through Grand Junction, Colorado on Interstate 70, stop at Hobby Hut Models on N. 12th St. in GJ.  I used to go there as often as I could when I lived near Grand Junction, and recommend it highly.  Great selection of most everything!

    To eliminate a seller from your eBay results, find the blue box that says "search" at the top right of the page, and click the word "advanced" that is to the right of that, in smaller letters.  That takes you to a new page where you can customize your searches.  Drop to the bottom of that page, to the section that's titled "sellers",  Click the box that says "only show items from",click the "specific sellers" button, then hit the arrow to the right of "include", highlight "exclude" from the drop down results (the only other choice given), then type in the name of the seller you want to exclude in the box to the right.  Last step is to click "search" at the bottom of the advanced page.  If all goes according to plan, in the category "parts", you'll have excluded about 25% of the listings (if we're all talking about the same seller!).

    That's why I filter out his listings!

    Check with Best Model Car Parts.  A few years ago he made me a bunch of plates that I requested--my former rides, friend's rides, etc.  Not that expensive, either.  Email him and ask...

    I'm hoping someone will do decals for the Fenner Tubbs SS/A driven by Joe Smith.  Won the '65 Super Stock World Championship at the NHRA World Finals at Tulsa with that car.

    Moebius Belvedere
    Just found it at my local Hobbytown.  Got yard work to do before I can open it, though.

    I entered two models once, and I doubt I'll do it again.  On the other hand, I do have a "K stock" class winner trophy from Irwindale Raceway I won back in 1967, around here somewhere.

    You might try the old spoon tests with various Testors blues over a black base...

    Tamiya ts 65 Pearl Clear
    I'm looking for opinions from those of you who have tried Tamiya Pearl Clear.  I'd like to hear your impressions of how it looks, and what colors you've sprayed it over.  I'm also interested in drying times between color coats and clear, and generally any helpful ideas about the paint.  Thanks,

    Allen: thanks!  Looks like what I need, and I've just ordered the set.  Now I'll have the console and stock seats, and I won't have to use the original stuff that's all painted in a VERY pleasing combo of olive drab and lime green(???), using at least a pint of paint from what I can tell.  Again, THANKS!

    '67/'68 Cougar seats
    A while back (maybe a couple of years), someone was selling on eBay resin 1/25 scale 1967 or 1968 Cougar bucket seats with center console.  Can anyone point me to whoever this was, or another source for Cougar seats?  I'm trying to restore a poorly built AMT model of a '68, that was built with the custom stuff.  Thanks,

  15. berr13 added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    I know, it is!  The seller also had a Johan '64 Dodge super stock, but I figured I'd better rein it in...I'd already bought an armor model, three AMT showcases, a box full of AeroMaster paints, and a Revell '59 Corvette.  I love the IPMS event here--it's well-managed and attracts a bunch of great models for the contest, from both Texas and Mexico.
