  1. I have one moulded in orange. If you still need it, give me an address and it is yours. Chris.
  2. The Monogram 55 Chevy street machine was the 1st kit I ever bought. It started it all for me. I was 13 years old, got my 1st summer job. Took my 1st paycheck to Kmart and bought this kit, a tube of Testors glue, and a can of Testors sapphire blue paint. I also ended up taking home AMT`s Rat Packer Nova that day. That started this lifelong obsession. Nearly 50 years later, and thousands of models later, I still think about that day and smile. Chris
  3. Hi, I was wondering if anyone might have the AMT Aquarod Chevy van and drag boat kit, and if they would be willing to send me a scan of the decals. Thanks, Chris.

    USA-1 decals

    Looking for a good set of decals for AMT`s USA-1 monster truck. If you have a set that you are not using, please send me a PM and I`m sure we can work something out. Thanks, Chris
  5. Might be better to pm me your address or email address, these could be a very large files to post on here
  6. I was hoping to find a copy of the instructions for the Jolly Roger kit online, but no luck. I will scan and post the parts you might be able to use in the morning. The JR kit has the same kind of sails and about 15 pages of instructions on rigging the sails. I am sure there is something there you can use.
  7. Wonder if the rigging lines would be close to the Jolly Roger kit. It has some instructions on the rigging. I read somewhere that a guy should only work in 1/2 hr blocks, to keep from getting burnt out on the rigging. I also picked up the Jolly Roger kit, if you need some rigging ideas.
  8. OK, progress is good. May have to trim the rat lines on mine. It should be in the mail today.
  9. I just bought this kit today, it will be my first ship. What technic did you use to wood grain the decks?
  10. This is great! Good inspiration, been wondering what to do with one of the T bodies I have stashed. Also like the car club name on the rear. Chris
  11. Did anyone ever do a review on the Testors reefer trailer? It is a 1/28th scale kit. Wondering how far off it would be for the Revell Kenworth & Peterbilt snap kits. I did a search on here but came up empty. Thanks, Chris
  12. I have bought from Hart`s Parts several times and have always been pleased. Chris.
