  1. 67 Buick GS 400

    Was this recently? I haven't ordered from him in over 10 years now because of his delivery issues. I do have two of his 68 GS kits and they are pretty nice but the chrome is more gold. I wanted to turn one into a 69 GS 400 Stage 1 convertible!
  2. 1/25 MPC The Grand Superfly

    I have a 72 in my restoration Pyle and it has a Superfly hood instead of the correct hood. I have restored another 71 and 72 and the hoods are different. The bulges are enlarged for the headlights but look like they can be sanded down to match. The nice thing is the Superfly hood has underhood detail and the annuals do not.
  3. Fe Ford Cross Ram

    Yes the 68 Torino does have one. It t is two pieces and not a very good representation of what is pictured above. I could dig mine out and get a better pic.
  4. 66 Chevelle wagon or el camino parts.

    I have a parts kit that has most of this. Bumpers and tail light bezels and lenses are here. No door handles, or wipers thou. This is from the El Camino kit. PM me on what you have to trade.
  5. 1957 Chevy nomad wagon

    Nice job on the flames! I too have a resin body and his flame mask and want to do the same thing. Did the mask stick real well? Also I bought a 67 Barracuda that was painted blue. I stripped it in the purple pond and it found gold paint under the blue and it would not come off. I washed it off and put it in 91% alcohol and it striped it off right away! I have found that if the purple don’t work the 91% will and vice versa.
  6. 1969 Beaumont front bumper/grille

    Greg. I’m going to have to get one of these from you!
  7. 1957 Bel Air Convertible

    That is a nice one!
  8. Man. Would have loved to have that 69 Charger 500 set for my Revell build!
  9. Johan amx question

    Here is a pic of the AMT 68 AMX box. I have the kit and all the info is already mentioned so I can't really add anything more.
  10. AGHHHH!Dont drop the airbrush!!!!

    I have 4 airbrushed. Mainly because I just don't get rid of them. Still have my original Badger 350. Great for beginning and I really durable but I have broken the air cap a few times. Next are two Badger 150s. Loved that one so much I bought a second one 15+ years ago. My original is so old it was sold by Sears and says Sears on the side. I could not tell you how many times I have dropped them and bent the tips or needles. I have used them both so much that I had rebuilt them many times. Worn triggers, air valves, you name it. I still use them on occasion. My newest one is a Grex with the trigger grip. I love it and it will spray very fine. Had it for about two years now and bought the combo with the compressor. That thing is trick. I am tempted to buy one more Grex and use it only for clearcoat. I had a Badger Airbrush compressor and it lasted just over 20 years with me before the piston broke. I bought it used!
  11. This seems appropriate

    This is very true! You don't have to be good at it just enjoy it. It is so easy to push for the next level and it is great to get that first award but if the award is why you are doing it, it will get disappointing.
  12. 1969 AMC AMX

    Wow. Very nice!
  13. Revell's 68 Mustang GT 2n1 kit

    Also, it is really a 3 in 1! it still has all of the Bullitt parts just no license plates so you can build the Bullitt car without paying the high prices for the Bullitt box!
  14. Revell '69 Boss 302 Mustang

    And with the leftover parts I decided to build a 70 Mach 1. These were before Revell offered the 70 Mach 1
  15. Revell '69 Boss 302 Mustang

    I have 2 on preorder myself. Can’t wait to see what the updates are on this one. Here is the one I built many years ago from the 69 Mach 1 and 70 Boss 302.
  16. Opinion on Revell ProModeler 69 Dodge Daytona kit

    Here is mine. It is the original pro modeler issue. I built it with a stock Hemi with a few stock parts donated from a 67 GTX kit. The original had tires that had the red lines preprinted as well but not as clean as the new ones in the 70 Charger. Those were nice and recently made it to my recently finished 69 Charger 500 build.
  17. Opinion on Revell ProModeler 69 Dodge Daytona kit

    The 70 Charger kit has the printed redines in it so they already exist.
  18. What are YOUR regrets ?

    Regrets, sure I have some regrets but I don't dwell on them. Without them thou I would not appreciate the seized opportunities! Also, I don't think I would remember some of the models I built if I didn't blow them up or shoot them!
  19. 1969 Beaumont front bumper/grille

    The green Beaumont is a 68 but the resin front bumper is a 69. I know the dashes are GTO but did the 69 get the same 69 GTO dash or the 68 GTO version.
  20. Revell 1968 Chevelle

    Yeah, 58 Impala, 69 Nova, 66 Impala instantly come to mind. even thou they did 3 different tools of a 70 Cuda. I didn't mind the first 70 AAR. It's not perfect but I liked it. The newest tool I really like. The other one that I didn't understand was why two different tools of a 70 TA Challenger? This 68 kit I like what I see so far and will get one even though I built a resin 68 convertible and have another 68 conversion kit for the AMT.
  21. revell gt350r decals

    Just to confirm that both issues only come with the decals to make that version pictured on the box. So no extra decals.
  22. Let's See Some Glue Bombs!

    72 Grand Prix. Not sure what I'm going to do with this one.
  23. Let's See Some Glue Bombs!

    Here is one I picked up off of EBay. Johan 70 Javelin. It actually stripped well and the hardest part was finding a hood and glass. I had everything else to return it to stock.
  24. Modelhaus Inventory Sale!!!!

    My order is about 50 after your last order. Since this is supposed to be remaining inventory they should only be sorting packaging and shipping it. So hopefully it won't take months to process all the orders. I hope them well and am real curios as to what kits they may release in the future! Since they said that I don't think they want to sell or truly retire. Sounds like they want to downsize.
  25. New updated Model Car Garage site!

    They announced the Shelby sets almost three years ago. I keep asking for updates but keep getting told that they are delayed and should be in the next batch of new releases but they have not shown up yet!
