    I'll have to check out the Barnes & Noble store tomorrow and see if they have this mag on their shelves.
  2. High octane added a post in a topic Lindberg's '64 Plymouth "Lawman"   

    Super Stocks were around as early as 1962 and maybe earlier according to my reference books.

    While I would like to order more kits/parts from Modelhaus, I know that they would just end up on my "build pile" and it would be "iffy" if I ever used them. Guess that I'm pretty well saturated with kits both resin & plastic, that I'm tryin' to buy as little as possible in the future as I'm not a fast builder.  I seem to have a lot of other things goin' on as well as model cars.

    Pro Stock? Looks more like a Super Stock to me. And besides the number of letters, what's the difference who's name is on the box regarding AMT or Lindberg?

    Very nice build on that "road chicken" David, as I just love dem Mopars!

    The Illinois Toy & Plastic Show is on the 28th of this month (Feb.) from 9 a.m. to 3 00 p.m. at the Du Page County Fairgrounds in Wheaton, Illinois, and has always been a good swap meet. Hope to see some of you there.

    I think that there was a guy in the Dayton, Ohio area that made a working Christmas Tree a few years back. He's on the Spotlight Message Board occasionally.

    I also have a '60 Lincoln Continental convertible kit that I picked up several(?) years ago that was still sealed when I bought it. I opened it in the parking lot to check it out after I had purchased it.

    The AMT '59 Lincoln Continental convertible kit was the first one piece body model car kit I got back in Dec. of '59. I really don't know whatever happened to it, but a couple (few?) years ago my brother-in-law was able to find this for me on Evil-bay. It sits in my display case in the box and still un built as this is what really started me into model car building.

    If any of you are not happy with your JoHan kits because of the wrong dash, bad tail lights, missing tires, etc,. feel free to send the entire kit(s) to me and I'll be sure to take good care of them.

    I thought that I had an extra '62 Dodge Dart body in my stash, but it turned out to be the '62 Fury body instead, oh well.
  13. High octane added a post in a topic Gas prices... how low will they go?   

    You got that right Michael as I  made a few laps around the lake in my father-in-law's boat and it cost me plenty to fill up the tank again. Wow!
  14. High octane added a post in a topic Rags   

    We had a demo on using tissues with white glue/water mix last Friday night at our club meeting on making tonneau/bed covers on pickup beds. I didn't watch the demo as I was busy gabbin' with other members. This method could be used to make tarps over engines, cars, etc. as well.

    I believe Preston's Parts sells battery cables.
