Rods, non-exotics, race cars. I plan on customizing whatever I get. I've got a couple of the ACME altereds and Autoworld funny cars. Could always use more. The only imports I'd like are Audi's. Would like to try to convert some kits into Trans Am cars.
I'm looking for 1:18 diecast kits by ACME or GMP. Other 1:18 parts kits that could be used for drag racers. If you've got any that you'd like to trade for plastic kits or other things, please let me know. Thanks, Mike
If he'd had the list ready when I was buying to replace my lost collection, I'd bought the whole thing. Nothing rare or hard to find but quite reasonable prices. I was promised a second list of harder to find more pricey kits but haven't received it
The Hurst Olds pleased some. Its only real use to me is as a WJ pro stocker (and Slixx is working on the decals.....THANKS!). Its been a good seller. A boat tail Riviera is so iconic. A stock Detroit car that's a beautiful car straight from the factory. Truly this is one of a few kits announced in the past ten years that I'd pre-order. Oh it hasn't been announced. Fall new releases should be announced in a few weeks. PLEASE!
A question and a suggestion. How are you cutting the metal? Are you using something like snips or heavy scissors and hen filing to shape? The seat and riser are quite impressive. Now for the suggestion....Scoring the lines in the door panels and adding a door pull or handle will add a lot to the interior. Overall, a wonderful job.
Kit is not as good as the box art.....I used the body for this project.
Unfortunately, I'm not sure if I still have the body I was working on. If I do, I'd love to restart it. The body tin and the chassis is junk although the rear end is useable. The engine block has potential but the blower is rubbish. I'd suggest merging the kit with either a Revell or Monogram FC. Actually the Monogram is closer to accurate. The Revell kit chassis was pretty well dated by 1973.
