  1. hope you have a great birthday and all year thru

  2. Terrible Box Art

    Seems like the art you guys are posting is really old. Today Ed at Revell/Monogram has had me very busy producing art and John at AMT/MPC is doing a fantastic job re-creating vintage art. Mobius box art always inspires me, ALWAYS! (Thanks Sean) These days, the shelf at the hobby shop seems devoid of the crappy box art we suffered through in the 80's. I love browsing through the model kits again. Not sure what this thread has to offer. P.S. If I forgot to mention an artist, sorry. P.P.S. I loved the box on that MPC 1907 Lancaster! Bought it and built it as shown with my paper route money. SO THERE!
  3. Happy Birthday Harry P.

    Not sure how old... 61 I guess.
  4. Happy Birthday Harry P.

    I will miss working with you.
  5. AMT boat kit

    My only problem with that kit is the scale. It seems like it scales out to a 14' boat to me making the layout wrong. 18" to 24" would be more correct for a duel cockpit boat. I started one myself turning it into a proper 14' fiberglass boat with an outboard and four close seats circa late 50's. As a stand-alone project, the hull looks BEAUTIFUL! But the scale is closer to 1/28th if you go measure a real one.
  6. Post pics of your fave long roof(wagon)

    Yes, Basswood and spruce.
  7. Latest MCM issue?

    Are you milking this thread Harry? (I received issue #201 on Saturday.)
  8. "Staple"? Doesn't mean it's the correct one, only the easy one.
  9. I bought a few slot cars today :)

    Personally, I like the old stuff best. More scale looking.
  10. My Buck Baker '57

    That's very nice! Might interest you to know that Revell was considering doing a kit of this car. The Baker Family and Revell couldn't agree on a deal so they canceled the release, but I did finish the artwork.
  11. '29 rat roadster

    I LIKE what I see so far very much. Hoping you dealt with the too high nose stance. Because that beautiful machine needs a bit of a rake.
  12. Small block Chev Tim. Or were you just being obtuse on purpose?
  13. Nice wheels Dennis! I like the look of the rod. I'll probably build one of my illustrations just for fun. Yeah I know it's a '29 but the overall look is what I am trying to attain.
  14. A picture is worth a thousand words. But some it seems are apparently too cheap.
  15. Danno, I bought them as is. No box and I rarely see a box on these old kits. But the two scales are so close as to make the differences moot unless you are trying to match up a head on a block.
