  1. dimaxion added a post in a topic Anybody recognise these old resin bodies?   

    The '57 Dodge is a replica of my 1:1 I bought in 1966 . It is the first TKM Resin I bought . Sans Interior .. The Imperial is the second .. Sans Interior . The Caddy Seville does have the Interior . I have a Mark VIII Continental WIP .. With Guts , it is a later kit . I have both the '55 & '56 Packard Caribbeans . The Ragtop '55 has guts , not so the '56 Vinyl Topped HT . 
        Thomas K Mills was an early Resin Caster . Every one is Slush casted . The Vacum formed Glass was another kit performance in the later days of his products . Although these are thought crude  by today's standards . Superb in the day with NO other choices . I appreciate these in my collection . Yes , some heave body work is required .. Any one have the Mark VI Bussleback they would part with ?? I would consider a trade on the Packards ..   Thanx ..

    Yes , these are TKM resins . Slush cast and considered crude by today's standards . I have a WIP and 3 Built Tom did Cast as kits . Quite allot of work , acceptable results . I would like to find a few more ..
        The  Italeri '33 Caddy would be a poor choice for this . Stick with the shelf curbside . The Metal plate Chassis will support the mass of the casting . A Wire Wheeled all plastic underneath .. not so much .  By 1039 , Caddy had shunned Wire Wheels . Thanx ..

    Does the '66 Buick Wildcat have the 'treasured' Pen & Pencil too ? IMHO , yes .
         When these were put into the kits , it was an aftermath of a large price increase for Kits . The cause according to AMT , MPC , Revelle , Monogram was a large jump in Raw Materials . Specifically plastics ! A few friends and I sent some of these bases ground up to AMT . Requesting to have it Re-cycled for actual Model Car Parts . Along with expressing the Opinion our Model Funds we would rather spend on Replicas . NOT pen/pencil clutter . 
       I still may have some of these left . That was in the day when I , as an adult modeler , with some Disposable Income did support the Kit Makers . Many Adult Builders bought most everything released then . If not your genera you did buy it to trade . Then , Resins happened ..........
        Thanx ..

  13. dimaxion added a post in a topic Y Block intake   

    The Dual 4's are from the AMY '56 Ford kit . It was an Option for '56 & '57 Both years . The '56 had "Sandcastle Quads" . Quite unique and efficient at that job of Fuel Air mixing . Expensive to produce used from '54 (?) to '56 on Y Blocks . I was privileged to have the experience to rebuild one .. successfully .  Thanx ..
