  1. Drag Monster added a post in a topic Ollie's strike again   

    I always heard that Ollie's was a good source for discontinued kits but there were none in my area (Rhode Island). The first one in this area opened up on April 5, Well I didn't have to wait too long to find out that what I have heard was true. This is part of my Saturday's score I also got 5 Lindberg Dodge L-700 Tanker Trucks, 5 Ford Mustang 5.0 Police cars & 5 Pro Street 55 Ford Jukebox Kits. I also had a 15% coupon off my entire purchase every thing was under $400.00

    Monogram 1/8 scale 1979 Pontiac Trans-Am Instructions & Decals
    Im Looking for a Instruction sheet and Decal sheet for Monogram's 1/8 scale 1979 Pontiac Trans-Am Kit # 6211. A copy of the instructions would be ok, I know the decals will be a difficult find but I have tons of kits to trade.

    I use Testors Fluorescent Red on my build it worked ok. I found it a little tricky to spray. If you are using a air brush I recommend practice on a scrap body or some sheet styrene, thinning to the proper consistency can be a challenge. Also all fluorescent colors are flat and will need to be clear coated.

    Here are both the Bonneville and the boat built straight out of the box. The only modification is the resin wheels on the Bonneville. I would love to see it issued as a hard top but I'll take either.

    Wow !! Even this thread has turned into a whining session! We are modelers people, if you can build them you should be able to fix them. With the customer base getting too old or dying off & next to zero new blood coming into the hobby be thankful for any new tooling you get. What I would suggest if you think you can do better, try scratch building. I for one welcome any new subject that is issued. Thanks Dave for taking the time To explain the process.

    I have built several. Here is a German Albatross I built a few years ago. This was built using original 1930's plans, most of the kit was scratch built including the engine and interior. It took about a year to complete.

    I just purchased a collection of kits and these were included. The T-bird and one of the Bonneville are complete the other Bonneville has broken "A" pillars and one tire missing all have complete chassis and motors. I would love to see these run on the track.

    AMT Cal Drag Combo
    I just picked up this kit in a collection I purchased, I can't seem to find any info on it anywhere. Does any one know any thing about it. I have been building and collecting kits for over 40 years and I have never seen it before. The kit is complete only some damage to the decals.
