The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
It's a cool kit, not worth $4000 in any condition though. Maybe $40-60 for a decent complete, unbuilt kit. It was first released in the early '60's as a double kit and it included a custom '32 Ford sedan. The Street Rod series version you have is from the '70's. Cool find!
After hearing the news last week, I bought another kit. Now I have three. Actually, I probably would have bought more of them anyway, even without the rumor. One can't have too many coupes! Maybe I should get a fourth kit...
I picked up this '61 Revell 1/4 scale slant six. Unbuilt, still sealed in the plastic bags. All of the metal screws, springs etc are still in the paper envelopes. The built engine belongs to my father.
Progress has been glacially slow, but I'm still working on them. The highboy now has a 2 speed rear from the '41 woodie and a lowered front end with brakes from the Blue Bandito. I thinned out the inside of the resin body and the new Revell kit's stripped interior almost fits, just needs a little more tweaking.
I quickly test fitted the new interior panels in the resin body, which is based on the old Monogram body and it looks like it should fit ok with a little trimming here and there. The new kit is 1/25th and the old one is 1/24th, but a side by side comparison shows that they're very close to the same size.
