    I'd sure love to see someone make this available.

    I'm with Craig - I'd be real interested to know people's experience with this kit, too.

    Bubbletop C1 Corvette?
    Does anyone make this top for either the 1/25 AMT or 1/24 Revell/Monogram Corvette?

    I gotta say, I think the paint looks just right on this!

    Awesome.  I'd leave it as is and proudly display it in my case.  Maybe build another one, or similarly themed, with your matured skills.

    Yeah, I'm surprised they didn't sell so well, too.  Everything I've seen looks like they are fantastic kits.

    Man oh man!  You guys are killing me!  Excellent information - Art, Tim, Bill, Dave, et al. - thank you!  Now, I really, really, really wish I'd grabbed some when they were available!

    Bill - I suspect this is true for many of us -- I build for several reasons:  I like the vehicle; I stumbled across some interesting history about the vehicle; my parents/grandparents/others had some connection to the vehicle or one like it.  And, I'm a history buff, so when I'm not building cars/trucks, I'm building 1/72 WWII aircraft (mostly).   Your comments really rang home for me. I was aware that the midgets were very popular after WWII, and that was my interest in them.  Plus, there are all sorts of marking options.
    I did dig through the ol' stash just a bit ago.  Turns out, I do have the Edelbrock Equipped V-8/60, but not the Offenhauser one.  I'm going to keep my eye out for more of the former, and at least one of the latter.
    If anyone has any built, I'd love to see them. I hate that I missed when they were hot items.

    Reading the reviews, I would have expected them to be popular kits - trailer included.  Bummer.

    Revell Midgets - all gone?
    I was thinking I'd like to pickup a couple of the Revell Midget racers (Edelbrock, Offy) but man, oh, man!  The few I've seen are only on eBay or Amazon and are pricey.  Anybody know if these might be reissued in the near future?
