  1. Upgrade Status

    This has been the first time I've seen that message circled in red, and have already fixed it on my PC and simple to fix. 1. Go to the very bottom of the page where it says "Theme" with the down arrow next to it. 2. Left Click on "Theme" 3. Select "Default" and the message disappears. I was getting the message when I first came online for the first time since this second upgrade attempt, and the "CleanCut 4.0.0 (Default) was selected. I changed it to "Default" and that message disappeared.
  2. Terrible Box Art

    At least those are slightly better than these ones like this Nova that I call "box of chocolate" kits because you never know what you're going to get inside! I had bought this because I have a thing for grocery getters and the box art clearly shows a STOCK Nova on the box and of course this is also when AMT/RC2 put little or no information on the kit box describing the kit inside. I was quite disappointed when I opened the box and found nothing but a prostock/prostreet version in the box with not even an option to build the stock version on the box art.
  3. I hope it's not true, but also wouldn't be surprised since Paccar did in the W900 with that new plastic pile of you know what called the W990.
  4. Testors Automotive Paints

    I'm not even that big on the Metalizer line, but that is only because I know while some including a close friend of mine have great success with brush painting the Metalizers in the bottles, I never could brush paint it well. I do like the Metalizers through an airbrush though for larger projects like this 1/32nd scale tanker trailer that the main body is sprayed with Metalizer for the main tank body and a few different shades of Alclad aluminums for some of the other parts for some visual difference.
  5. Testors Automotive Paints

    Honestly it wouldn't matter to me if Testors does get rid of their paints because I have slowly been phasing their colors out for years with Tamiya paints for my brush painting needs. As for spray paints, I would miss some of those like the Custom Lacquer line such as the GM, Ford, and Mopar colors, but even those I only use for specific projects. Anything I don't want a specific color I use Duplicolor automotive paints on and if that specific color is available in Duplicolor's line I'll buy the Duplicolor over Testors.
  6. 2019 Round2 Truck Kit Releases

    The original 1971 issue of the KW W925 and also the original 1971 issue of the KW K123 had Alcoa 10 hole wheels as well in all positions. The original 1969 issue of the Peterbilt California hauler and the 1970 issue of the Peterbilt 352 also were like the KWs and equipped with the 10 hole Alcoas. As for the International 4300 and the F-4270, I have both but know for sure where the 4300 has Alcoas and the F-4270 has spoke wheels but without doing a direct kit beside kit comparison not sure if the two share anything else or not.
  7. I second the motion for the option of white stripes, and also would like to suggest maybe a set in white and black of these R/T stripes too and for both the 70 and the 2009.
  8. BJ & the Bear XXL Project Complete

    WOW, and I thought the custom BJ and the Bear truck I was working on using the "Papa Truck" until it got temporarily shelved was long!! Nice work!
  9. CB radio mount in Boss Hogg's 1970 Cadillac

    You're welcome, it only took about 15 minutes of pausing rewinding, and pausing some more not only to spot it but to get a decent enough shot to point it out! I don't know about the "geezer" part if that applies to me or not , but you are 100 % correct about the mounts being flipped and attached to the transmission hump.
  10. CB radio mount in Boss Hogg's 1970 Cadillac

    I found this on YouTube, looks like it could be right at the arrow.
  11. 2019 Round2 Car Kit Releases

    In your two comments I quoted, you said 4 DOORS and did not specify anything other than that! All of the kits in my picture fit what you specified in those previously quoted posts and unlike many here that seem to not realize there has been life after the 50s, 60s or 70s, I build anything from the 1886 Daimler Benz I have in my collection all the way to modern. I also have resin conversions I purposely left out that are 4 doors because you did specify plastic kits...wait, I forgot...resin conversions require one to buy more than just one kit...
  12. While I don't have this particular kit, I do know Airfix and MPC did have a relationship in the late 70s or early 80s. I have a 1981 issue MPC Dodge D50 4x4 and I've found pictures online of it with the same box art except for the MPC being replaced by Airfix.
  13. 2019 Round2 Truck Kit Releases

    Unless he got the A and the B confused. Either way, the A has only been issued once in its original release in 1974 and the B Transtar II only twice in 1976 and 1996.
  14. 2019 Round2 Car Kit Releases

    Ummm...the Impala in "Dirty Mary Crazy Larry" was a 66 the last time I checked. I believe it would be noticed too if the car was actually a 70. The Impala from"Dirty Mary Crazy Larry": And a 1970 Impala 4 door:
  15. 2019 Round2 Car Kit Releases

    Oh really?? As 1972 mentioned, MPC did just that with the Monaco, but there are several major kit manufacturers making 4 door kits in several different forms no matter what genre or era of vehicle you are into. If you can count these on one hand you have a LOT of fingers on that hand, because just out of my personal collection I have 36 different kits that are 4 door vehicles, and it you want to stretch it 38 since I also have a Johan Cadillac ambulance and an Ecto 1 but did not include them since they were more a commercial modification, but they do still have 4 doors! There are also many others that I don't have in my collection such as cars from BMW, Mercedes, Lexus, and probably even more than that, so you better have a LOT of fingers to count all the 4 doors on one hand!
