  1. 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!
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Opinion on Revell ProModeler 69 Dodge Daytona kit

    The 70 Charger kit has the printed redines in it so they already exist.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Let's See Some Glue Bombs!

    72 Grand Prix. Not sure what I'm going to do with this one.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. AMT 53 Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing

    Wow! Very nice!
  15. 1970 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler

    Awesome build! I love the color and I have the same problem with my build. I just can’t commit to a color! This car looks good in so many colors!
  16. 1/25 AMT '71 Plymouth Duster 340

    I'm glad to see it back as well! Nice kit with a very nice 340. I have already bought many for my projects. I have one to build as a 70, another was done as a stock 71. A third one was being converted into a 72. Plus two more for resin Demon's, (a 71 and a 72) plus I bought many more for the 340 that went into 72-74 MPC Challengers.
  17. whats the rarest model you own and did you build it?

    Yes great score. I bought this one from eBay and it was a steal! I could see it had extra parts as it was both molded in white and red and I seen two sets of wheels. Seller did not inventory it and admitted it in his add. When I got it it was two complete kits in one box! Here are the finished builds.
  18. Is the 1957 Chevy the most kitted ?

    I was wondering the same thing? Are we talking number of tools made of this subject including modified retooling? Different box art issues of the same kit inside? Definitely an interesting topic. Much like the 69 Camaro, 32 Ford, and 69 Charger.
  19. Eleanor

    Well, from that picture the cowl and engine compartment are from the Revell 1/24 scale 64-66 Mustangs.
  20. Eleanor

    My question is that the USCP is listed as 1/24 Scale and has the dash shown. No need to cast the dash if you are using the Revell 68 but that is 1/25. The 1/24 kits are the 70 Mach 1, 70 Boss 302, 70 Boss 429, and the 65 and 66 Mustangs. Scale Productions is an awesome kit and I wish it was still available as it was worth every penny. I bought a few myself. Greg Wanns is available and much cheaper but does not have the photo etch and decals and some other parts. Both of them work with the AMT 67 Shelby and that kit is great.
  21. whats the rarest model you own and did you build it?

    These were all mostly mint kits that I have built or are 1/2 done. Some the boxes were not mint thou. The Rebel was a water damaged kit so decals and box were bad but kit was fine. 71 cyclone box was crumbling and tail lights were missing. That one is 1/2 done. The 70 Grand Prix was factory sealed but that is done now. Most of my rare builds are restorations of previously built kits. I know I have some very racer resin kits to build to.
  22. whats the rarest model you own and did you build it?

    I'm not sure which ones of these would be the rarest but I would have to say the 71 Torino kit is still factory sealed and pretty rare. Then maybe the 68 and 69 Javelins. All of these are mint unbuilt kits. Only the 68 Javelin is somewhat started. I had the bumpers rechromed and sold the funny car parts from that kit. All the rest are complete and I have not built them. Some of them like the 69 Javelin I have duplicate rebuilders.
  23. Thanks John and Ron, Since this was brought up I want to say thanks to anyone whom bought one of them but want to make it aware that this was back in 2012 and I don't have any more of these for sale. I only did it as a very limited run and I don't cast on a regular basis. I do love my Javelins and I have 2 68 Javelins and 3 69 Javelins in my stash of rebuilders. So the decals for them interest me very much along with the 70 Duster 340!! I also plan to do the 84 Hurst Olds 442!
  24. I see a few I have to get from you but that 69 Javelin is one I have to have. I had these made years ago and built this one. I have a few more 69s to restore!
  25. Do You Get Fixated On One Type Of Car?

    For me it's a yes and no. I build mostly stock muscle cars, I also build Thunderbirds, Corvettes, and Impalas. Occasional exotic and a few race cars. So far I recently finished a 60 Impala, 69 Charger 500, 68 Cougar GT, 69 Shelby GT500, and a 71 Grand Prix.
