  1. Some really cool stuff by Dave Dickash

    I spoke to him only briefly when I met him at the Mid Atlantic NNL many years ago....think he had an Isetta model that he had turned into a dragster. Seemed like a real jovial character.
  2. whats the rarest model you own and did you build it?

    Starbird's Futurista is pretty rare...especially in unbuilt form...almost never see one on e Bay..been looking for years. Same for the Uncertain T...its the plastic kit equivalent of Big Foot...or the Loch Ness monster.

    Ditto. Sounds like you shared great times together.
  4. Odds & Ends July 2018

    Wow....its a grown up Annette of the Mouseketeers!
  5. Some really cool stuff by Dave Dickash

    Dave Dickash....wasnt he a member of L.I.A.R.S. modeling club on Long Island? He passed away in 2004. His motto went something like "anyone can collect old model car kits, it takes a real man to cut them up". Met him at a NNL in Towson Md many years ago...built some crazy stuff. R.I.P.
  6. 1930 Model A Ford Woody

    From where I'm sittin looks like a super nice clean build. Agree about the wheels...the yellow on wide whites really makes it stand out.
  7. Old Hobby Shop Photos

    At the height of the hot rod / car model craze of the early 60s it seemed you could find car model kits for sale everywhere...not just hobby shops but five and dimes, grocery stores. Stocking shelves with car kits was like printing money. I also recall vending machines that sold trading cards with pictures of famous show rods...
  8. Resin 29 body

    I like the low slung look. Any more pics?
  9. Revell T bucket

    One of my all time favorite kits...in all its variations. And not as easy as it looks...a bit finicky.
  10. '36 Ford 3-Window Coupe Resto Rod

    Lovely concept....Nicely realized.
  11. Let's see your TV and movie cars!

  12. Let's see your TV and movie cars!

    It's a hot date ...cruising Mullholland Drive.
  13. Let's see your TV and movie cars!

    How about a vinyl L.P. car?
  14. 40 ford

    Cool color...what paint did you use? And those wide whites...where were the tires/wheels sourced? A really nice clean looking build!
  15. Share the Love?

    I think Tim Sickle has some long standing issues with MCM so I don't think he would be putting together photos for them, but he might for that "other" magazine.
