  1. Paul Payne, You have a Pm incoming!
  2. SWEDE70, nice score 1 Did you pick these up at Great Lakes Hobby? I know they buy diecast collections and then sell them reasonably priced to make their money back.
  3. as of today coupon is still on my phone! I think DAVE Van said there would be a two-week grace period before they refuse them. My coupon on my phone expires on 3/6/21 and you cannot use it on "your price" items.
  4. Dave Van, you said the 40% off coupon will go away, but will the 40% sale in the hobby category away? When H.l. ran the 40% off sale the last few months the shelf were always empty at my stores!
  5. Another Masterpiece Claude T! Bravo, Bravo, Bravo! Take your bows now!!! (are all your model builds done on a coffee high or some other substance? Legal or illegal depending on where you live). Or is there something in the water in Quebec, Canada???LOL Excellent build! I bet that car would give a 2020 Vette a run for its money!!
  6. Yes, Casey , All American Models (Art Anderson) did this resin body! I picked one up in the 90's from the Toledo show from him.
  7. If you look at those tires real close and then look at one of those Goodyear, Firestone or Bridgestone ashtrays 1/1 scale, maybe they used the rubber tire ashtray for the 1/10 master to cast the tooling from?
  8. Now correct me if I'm wrong , but I think those were also in the AMT 1953 Studebaker "Salty Dog" Bonneville version one time?
  9. Tulio, If you hit rock bottom there is nowhere to go but uphill! Now put on you modeling shoes my brother modeler, and show us your stuff again! We are your (modeling?) family. Good luck and God bless! We need our Brazilian Ford informant to be active once more!
  10. yes , you need to put soiled solvent-laden rags in a sealed metal bin covered, so the fumes won't self-ignite when your not around.(please don't ask me how i know this!)
  11. martinfan5 . It looks good , it doesn't qualify for" Gluebomb" status! LOL .Imagine in 20 years a listing on E-bay ." glue bomb cup of noodles" model kit not complete, just missing all the shrimp!
  12. as long as you credit the original owner for photos or work it is not a copyright issue. It is when you reproduce something for "'personal" use and try to sell it without permission from the copyright owner then it becomes an issue. Please fell free to correct me if I 'm wrong here!
  13. Excellent kit-bash, excellent paint, excellent build quality. Very clean build style. The "Clifford Read" of plastic modeling ? Lol. Is the gas tank off of a Revell 55 Chevy older kit(1960's-1970's)?
  14. Cliff, all those great diecast rebuilding skills transfer here. Excellent as always. love it, love it, love.it!
  15. Claude, What is in the water in Quebec city? no seriously, This is a Kool and clean build and with scraps from the parts box? I can see you in the Mancave all winter long with many projects. This is truly a creative work of modeler's art!
  16. This should be built as a 1:1 vehicle for the SEMA show in Las Vegas. Chip Foose are you listening?
  17. Tom, what color did you use on your carb, (it looks real). or is it custom mixed?
  18. I have this kit in a different box , body is pretty good ! Reminds me of the 71 GTO MPC promo body. When you look under the hood part of the one piece body, it even has the same or similar mold parting line! I'll have to test fit the 1972 MPC GTO kit and see how far off it is? If I remember correctly it comes with the correct 71 GTO spoiler also. The Dousha kit interior is not deep at all but has the semi correct headrests in it?.It has a slot cat depth to it .Chassis has no detail to it!I will check it tonight!
  19. Maybe this magazine needs to look at Magcloud to really get it going again!
  20. Right on, Dave Van Right on! . Making money is the name of the game!
  21. The production date on the bottom of the kits is 7/1/2020.This must be a run of kits just for Ollie's to sell. Maybe it is sold to Ollie's and then the cash goes to pay off the tooling bill to Rc2/ Tomy?. Round 2 did this last year also! Also look on the website, they are opening up new stores in different states!!!
  22. I checked my local stores to scout them, see what aisle they will be in to save time looking for them in the sale product presentation. The Ypsilanti store on Ellsworth rd had the Lindberg" Big Red Rod" kits at $ 39.95.The price has dropped $10.00 from 6 weeks ago, since people found out the chrome wasn't plated. The store had about 10-12 left when I left. Happy hunting!
  23. OK boys the next sale at Ollies starts on the 29th of October 2020. Their flyer showed Amt, Hawk, Lindberg and Revell? stuff. Get out there and scout those locations early! Maybe they will set up for the ad late Wednesday night! YOU have been notified!
  24. Faust, try J-bar hobbies in Tecumseh, Mi .It is like another Ashbrooks. just off us 23 , 1 hour southwest of Novi, Mi> Enjoy it when you return after the Covid lock down!
