    You may find some of those kits posted above at Spotlight Hobbies from time to time.
  2. High octane added a post in a topic Tow Bars-Race Car   

    Tow bars came in a number of kits back in the 60's, however I don't recall all of them. My guess is in the AMT '32 Ford Roadster, and the Buick Special Wagon with trailer. There have been others also, and maybe some other modelers can name them.

    It made even more racket in the vestibule of an apartment building Harry that had tiled walls. 
  4. High octane added a post in a topic Is it me or is it my builds?   

    I build for me, and I only build for fun describes the way I feel. I enjoy what I build and if nobody else does, so be it.

    Those resin NOS bottles should work fine, and how hard can it be to paint them blue?

    I can't recall ever having a problem with regular masking tape.

  9. High octane added a post in a topic Question about tape   

    I've used Scotch 3M General Purpose (tan) Masking Tape for years and it seems to work fine for me for two tones, or whatever.
  10. High octane added a post in a topic `65 Plymouth Hemi Super Stock "Melrose Missile"-Moebius/Model King   

    I had to order my "Missle" from my LHS and paid a steep price for it, however I do believe in supporting my LHS and would sorely miss them if they "folded up." I only open 'bout 30 % of my kits, however I did open the Missle today to see if there was any body damage due to packaging. I even manange to get all the parts back in the box minus the body. The was everything was "crammed" in the box, one would think that this was a 3 in 1 kit. While I remember seeing these Super Stocks race back-in-the-day, I have no idea when I'll get to building my Missle kit as I have a lot of other models I'd like to get built also.

    I believe those visors came in the Galaxie Chevy kits also.
  12. High octane added a post in a topic southern Illinois   

    I think there's one in the Springfield area, and a few in the Chicagoland area also.

    You clear coat your BMF to protect it, from what? do you display your built models outside of the house? I did my first BMF job in the early 80's and it still looks great.

  15. High octane added a post in a topic Painting/priming over a Red or Yellow molded body?   

    I've had great success with colored plastic bodies by painting them with Tamiya's Silver Leaf, then Tamiya's White Primer, and then my color coats and clears.
