    Your build looks great to me!!! Considering that mold may have produced over a million kits over 50 plus years.....you did well.

    WOW.....this is the kind of project I love!!! I missed the early work....now gone photo wise......but will watch now. I have always had a road roller project in the back of my mind......a little earlier vintage. GREAT WORK!

    Newbie has the same protection if they follow the rules as us that have been on for 20 years. 
    The scammers are hoping they can get the money, withdraw it before they are discovered.  IF they do ebay and paypal take the hit.....but it is such a small percentage overall.....it's considered 'cost of doing business'. 
    End of the story.....ebay sellers stand to loose MUCH more than any buyer ever can.  Just use your basic living skills.

    While I agree it looks 100% like a scammer........as a BUYER it is VERY difficult to get scammed on ebay.....if you have an average IQ. 
    I have been using ebay since 1998 and NEVER been taken as a BUYER. I have been inconvenienced a number of times......last time was this week. I bought a socket wrench organizer tray. Seller was a scammer, I never got it.....filed a claim and got my money in four days after ebay delivery date was missed. SO I was out my money for a week or two....but got 100% of it back.  So was I scammed or just inconvenienced??? I have been scammed a few times outside ebay by people stealing my money when I ordered something and never delivered.....bet most of us here have. But never on ebay.....is ebay perfect...NO......but I do not worry much about any scammers.

    I have a paint booth (just came in from the garage using it) I built mine and it has a very high CFM fan but any good booth will work. Mine vents outside and I can't smell paint after I take off the mask. 
    PS if you make a paint booth make sure your fan can operate with a flammable  paint. Mine came from a industrial printer and is safe in any environment.

    IF they do like the original issue it had some NASCAR parts included. Basic roll cage, seat and other items.....about 50% of what needed for a good Cup car. They included wheels and tires that were WAY to narrow.....but could be used if it didn't bother you.

    The Tom Daniel kits 'slowing down' is due in part they re-issue the same ones over and over. Bill Lastovich was the last PM that saw value in the kits. But they were kits not seen in many years. The TD Dog Catcher was on the schedule but was dropped. Horn Toad is another that would be a good one to re-issue. Lack of sales is more to do with the kits picked than the category.

    Good stuff.......
    Baja Bronco......Look at the trees on the stock kit. No inside here......but I always saw a Big Oly type wing in that empty spot on the chrome tree. I doubt it would be a Big Oly because nothing from the stock kit to make a 100% accurate Oly. I think Revell will give you some key parts and how far you go is up to you.  I look forward to it.....or seeing what it is.

    First completion of a large project......
    I have decided to build many of the 1988 NASCAR Winston Cup series cars. I call it Project '88. I picked 88 for a number of reasons....most obvious is all the bodies were made in plastic!! I hope to build 20+ of the cars that year....split between the famous and the unknown. Rusty Wallace Pontiac is number one. Box stock other than added package shelf. Penngwen Hobbies decals, Tamiya and Dupli-color paints. DNL tire transfers. Thanks

    Reported on other forums it is again cancelled......
  12. Dave Van added a post in a topic Revell street burner 70 chevelle 3n1   

    A decent little kit. 1/24 scale if that's an issue. I've built a few of them....and bought a few DONK issues just for parts.....at $8 each.  
    No issues building....Normal 80's era Monogram kit.

    Guy across the street when I was in HS bought a new LTD II just like the one above. I LOVED that car.....thought it was so cool. 
    I've been hitting up Revell for a 77 Thunderbird in the style of the 77 Monte Carlo kit.....I think it would be as popular and a sales hit.

    I'd like to see a 77 LTD II Sport myself....the 4 door is cool too.....
