    Very nice!...  I have one of those but its roof is busted up and its missing some parts and bumpers,taillights,etc.  Might make a station wagon out of it if I can find the stuff it will need...???

    Kevin...Yep i remember his older smaller shop too...the newer one is much more nice.  LOL..yep i bet the locals snatch up the goodies quickly there.  I got a big box of stuff that has some damage which will keep me from building them the way i wanted to and Ill take them to the disabled builders group here next week to repair and build...they need them and its not always easy to get them stuff to work on by myself...at least this way they will have a use and not be wasted.  I almost got the room sealed back up again so the cleaning should start soon in there or hopefully it will...a lot to do will have to repaint the room too.  I use to buy a lot of stuff from Chris and use to go to St.Louis just to go there....nice place.

    Id like to get a hold of 2 of the snap-tite ones....would be to restore a couple of old promos that have seen better days.

    Kevin...I have been there very nice place!  Have not been there in many years though...always liked he sold out of production kits as well as new issues.  Another I use to go to is Mark Twain hobby off I 70. and Shaffer's back when they still sold Johan kits....I miss them.  I hope he stays in business forever too for you...seems like a really nice guy too.  You all are lucky to have them close by.

    Kevin....I know that feeling got into some scary spots as a younger guy too.  Building is a huge part of my life so is the family collection of them...memories are priceless.  My accident changed me a lot but always tried to be a good guy...now I take time everyday just to sit and enjoy everything we often miss due to a busy life.  I have decided to take some of the slightly damaged kits and donate them to the disabled builders group here they could use them and they will have a good use...others Ill just have to work with as is.  Being disabled myself building is a good way to pass all the time away.  I use to get to St.Louis every once in awhile...you have good shops there.

    Kevin...Very true and I do appreciate everything...I have since my brush with death in the 1996 car accident.  Still its a bummer but I figure I am pretty lucky and on borrowed time so to speak because I shouldn't really be here with everything I have been through but am...a blessing in itself.

    VERY NICE Bill.... ...I have wanted to do just that with a Hornet for years and build other bond 007 movie cars.

    Welcome Robert....   I done a weathered 64 Chevy pickup as a junkyard truck...I need to learn more about it too...the guys here are very helpful.

    Looks pretty familiar just not as bad here as the photo you posted...hate to see anyone have to go through it.  There is a unique smell in the area that a tornado hits for some time...guessing its from all the mud,dirt,debris that was blown around and dead trees...?

    Nice work...always liked them myself.  The old Ertl Blueprint series kits are one of my favorites...nice detail,etc. with those.
