    Awesome find Robert...I have a soft spot for the promos myself let alone late 60s big bodied cars.
  2. disabled modeler added a post in a topic question   

    i could not figure it out before
  3. disabled modeler added a post in a topic 1974 Ford Ranger XLT Camper Special   

    Yep that is the one with the factory topper...its nice.

    Welcome Richie...!  I am a big 60s to mid 70s body style kind of guy but build others too.

    Thats is cool but crazy.
  6. disabled modeler added a post in a topic Another reason to like older cars!   

    I have a 84 Chevy 4x4 that still has its computer in it...but its not hooked up to anything now runs much better than with it...early systems were a joke anyway rarely worked right with any miles on them.  Now the companies make horsepower with them instead of the engine making it all like they use to.  yep its my daily driver.

    Welcome...   Best advise anyone ever gave me is to treat every part as if it were a model itself and take your time.

    Frank...its nice to see the older models and kits...reminds me of much younger better days...I am sure you will do them justice.  I have some of my dads oldies to restore once I find the parts they need..he had some really cool nice stuff shame they cant or don't re-issue them again.

    I agree with Ben...campers are nice additions to pickups,etc.....I am always looking for more of them for mine.
  10. disabled modeler added a post in a topic Motivation, wish I could find some.   

    Clayton....Carl is right and your not alone here...the tornado we had has had my time spent cleaning up and repairing things around here the best I can.  Now that most of its done to a point I have the same issue you have...I have several started but just cant get motivated to finish any of them right now.  Sometimes Ill find a AMT or Johan snap kit to break the building block or work on something out of my normal areas of interests...it will pass have faith.
  11. disabled modeler added a post in a topic empty shelves, light inventory   

    I have tried G...he says they never know what they will get in and its up to corporate.  Id order on line from those other places but its a funds issue for me...cost of the kit and shipping adds up fast and my budget is pretty poor to work with.
  12. disabled modeler added a post in a topic empty shelves, light inventory   

    Ours is painfully slow if they show up at all and most don't...with 40% off coupon I can afford to shop there if they ever get anything...been over 6 months since anything different has shown up here...you all are lucky to have a place where they do show up at. 
  13. disabled modeler added a post in a topic Degreasers as Strippers?   

    I have had good luck with Super Clean straight not diluted on most paints others I use brake fluid if the other does not work....some I have stripped were painted 40 years or more years ago.  Both seem to loose their strength over lots of time and cleanings and needs changed out with fresh stuff.

    Id just be happy once ours gets something in automotive...ours the shelves just shrink while the military,die-cast grows...???  If and when they do get anything different in its about a year behind.  I am almost to the point where I think there is no reason to go look there now...there not going to have it thing.
